- ContiSportContact 5 is approved for all Ghibli models
- 18- to 21-inch tires are fitted at the factory
Maserati has now approved Continental summer tires to be fitted at the factory for the Ghibli as well. Continental will now manufacture the ContiSportContact 5 in eight sizes between 18 and 21 inches for the Maserati Ghibli. To distinguish it from other versions of the premium sports tire, the original equipment models for the Italian sports sedan will feature the additional “MGT” marking on the side wall. Back last year, the sports car manufacturer from Modena had already chosen Continental to supply the tires for the Quattroporte.
The basic version of the Ghibli will be fitted with the ContiSportContact 5 in size 235/50 R 18 97 Y, whereas the axles on the more motorized cars will be fitted with 19-, 20-, and 21-inch tires. The tire dimensions of the front and rear axles will be different. Wider tires will be fitted on the rear axle to ensure that the sports sedan delivers high performance on the asphalt as well as precise handling. The product range starts with tires from 18 inches, and the vehicle models with more powerful engines of up to 301 kW (410 hp) will be fitted with ContiSportContact 5 tires in sizes 245/35 ZR 21 96 Y XL on the front axle and 285/30 ZR 21 100 Y XL on the rear axle. The tires for the Ghibli are approved for speeds of up to 320 km/h.
