Confident sport handling on dry and wet roads. For high performance cars.
The SportControl is designed for controlled sporty driving. Benefit from confident handling and shorter braking in wet conditions. You’ll also enjoy lower fuel costs and CO2 emissions.
Get the most from your high performance car. The tire tread features progressive humps that distribute pressure evenly across the contact patch. The result is better handling at motorway speeds, with precise cornering control.
Drive with confidence in rainy conditions. A full silica tread compound works with Aqua Flow grooves to deliver shorter braking distances on wet roads – up to 3 meters shorter than competitors’ tires.*
Lightweight construction makes the tire easier to roll, resulting in lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In independent tests, the SportControl offered 14% lower rolling resistance than the competition.* That adds up to significant cost savings over the tire’s lifetime.
The tread pattern is optimized so that wear occurs evenly across the tire surface. This ensures a smoother, quieter ride and longer tire life.
*Tested against 2 direct mid-range competitors in November 2010 by TüV SüD Automotive: Mireval (France); size: 225/45R17 94Y, Car: VW Golf VI 1.4 TSI; Wet Braking 80-20 km/h, Report 76244449-1.
Depending on the type of road and driving style, rolling resistance contributes to 20% of car fuel consumption (ETRMA).
