Stick or Twist ?


Recommended Posts

So the time is approaching, going to need some fresh rubber.


Do I Stick with the MP4S @ £361 x2 for the rear and £312 x2 Front


Or twist and try the Conti Sport 7 @ £264 x2 for the rear and £250 x2 Front


Sizes BTW are 305x30x19 and 265x35x19 

Seems the lifespan of the MP4S are about 20k 🤨

If be tempted with the contis, they have five better in some reviews, the reason the mp4s get so much press is they pay YouTubers a fortune to promote them, I'm not saying they don't deserve the praise, they just get too much, the contis and f1s are as good and are better in some situations.

I have Sport Contact 6's on the R8 and been very impressed with them.


Haven't got much experience with Michelin but I find it hard to believe they'll be worth the £318 extra.

I'd imagine both tyres will be pretty similar in terms of performance and wear rate.

The SC6 is already a better performing tyre than the 4S when tested back to back, the SC6 is a greater feeling and quicker tyre point to point let alone the SC7 which is the current benchmark UHP tyre.


The SC7 is a whole generation beyond the 4S, it'll be the S5 that will try and knock the Conti of the top step. If you want to eeek out more miles stick with the 4S, (although the SC7 is said to be almost 20% better on wear over the SC6) if you want Cup 2 levels of performance with greater road manners and feel then go for the Continental SportContact 7





Bonus content, the game has moved on it would seem
