Sporty driving on wet and dry roads. For ultra high performance cars.
The SportControl 2 is the improved UHP tire designed for sporty driving. Benefit from short braking distance on dry and excellent control on wet. You’ll also enjoy reduced fuel consumption.
Sporty driving capability on dry and wet roads
Optimized tread footprint for high mileage
German high technology at a great value for money
Short braking distance on dry
Braking when its needed. The advanced tread design allows for a balanced pressure distribution throughout the tread delivering optimized contact between the tire and the road.
Excellent control on wet.
Drive with confidence when it matters the most. Multiple AquaFlow grooves allow for efficient water evacuation while the engineered silica tread compound provides traction on wet roads.
Sporty driving on dry roads
Get the most from your ultra high performance car. The wide and stiff outside shoulders reduce tire tread deformation delivering better steering precision while cornering.
The optimized tread footprint and cavity design (Black, Wide, Strong) allows for an even tread wear delivering high mileage.
Reduced fuel consumption
The low weight construction and engineered compound technology created for this tire control the energy loss allowing for cost saving over the tire’s lifetime.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

17.01.2020fromWasim It's a fine set of tyres. I don't push the car so can't really comment on its braking abilities and I haven't taken enough statistics to confirm any fuel efficiency differences from the manufacturer-provided tyres. However I can confirm that the moment I drove away from the garage with the new tyres, it was noticeably quieter, enough that some in my family noticed.
Since buying the tyres the main roads to work have been torn up and the current temporary roads are really quite bad and will probably tear up the tyres far faster than normal roads would... who knows how bad the noise in the car would have been with the old ones.
04.12.2019fromBarry A great performing tyre for the cost. Only area of concern is on damp roads and losing grip under hard acceleration (front wheel drive car, with lots of diesel torque). Very quiet compared to my last factory fitted Michelin.
25.09.2019fromDavid Excellent tyre. Solid performance in wet and dry at high speed
19.03.2019fromCVX Excellent tyre and good value for money. Bought thanks to the EU label showing a C in fuel efficiency and A on wet grip. The tyres did meet the expectation
