BMW M4 is using Continental SportContact 6 tyres as standard equipment. The SportContact 6 was built specifically for sporty automobiles and is optimised for high-speed handling, precision, and driving stability. Furthermore, it received the highest rating in the EU tyre label's wet grip category, indicating that it performs exceptionally well when braking on wet roads. Continental's 275/40 ZR18 (103Y) XL and 285/35 ZR19 (103Y) XL tyres have obtained universal certification.
"As the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road, tyres play an essential role in providing an optimal driving experience without compromise," said Dr. Holger Lange, head of tyre development for Continental's original equipment business. "Our engineers develop OE tyres that perfectly match the respective vehicle model and thus
optimally support the car's performance. To capture the specific requirements, Continental works closely with vehicle manufacturers on tyre development."
