CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Sept. 15, 2004) — Continental Tire North America Inc. has introduced its ContiSportContact 2 Vmax to the North American market for ultra-high speed vehicles such as Porsche and Ferrari.
The tire, available in four sizes, is approved for speeds up to 220 mph. It is based on the ContiSportContact 2. The Charlotte-based tire maker said it incorporated more tread grooves to cool the tire while traveling at high speeds. An increased portion of negative tread also is designed to give the driver better handling on wet roads.
The tire is available in the following sizes: 245/35ZR19, 275/30ZR19, 235/35ZR19 and 315/25ZR19.
