Has anybody tried the new Continental ContiSportContact 5P tires? Everything I have read about them is extremely promising.

I was planning on getting the Continental ExtremeContact DW tires next, but now I think I may try these when I get a set of aftermarket wheels. The only problem I see with them, is they are limited in sizes available.

I'm running the DW. The 5P is currently only available in Audi and Mercedes OE sizes. With the sizes currently available you could run the 255/35/19 in front and the 285/30/19 in back. The 5P are built in the Czech Republic as are the 245/35/19 and 285/30/19 DW that I have. BTW, I'm still luving my DW.

the 5P are the tires I was planning to get for my car. The size I wanted are 245/35YR19 and 275/30YR19 which are MB approved but only the ZR ones were available at that time, the YR had gone out of stock :(
It has been praised by all the reviews I have read.

Yes, 255/285 would fit perfectly on a 8.5" front and 9.5" rear aftermarket wheel. I would prefer to go 255/295, so the DWs would probably be a better choice.

I'm not about to buy new wheels/tires any time soon, so it doesn't matter. I'm always looking to see what's out there though. I actually just ordered another set of DWSs for the front of my car, as I punctured the side wall of one of my front tires and had to get a new one and figured I would replace them both.

Not sure what you are speaking of. The 5P is only available in a YR speed rating and neither of the sizes you speak of are listed on the continental web site.
You are right for the US but in France we get more sizes : http://www.conti-online.com/generat...contact_5_p/contisportcontact-5p,tabNr=4.html

BTW, IMHO, 275/30/19 is just a wee bit too small in OD, the 285/30/19 is a better choice.
True, I went for this size as most of the threads on here and CL about upsizing the tires on the OEM wheels were showing most people installed 275/30R19 at the rear.
