Continental 4x4 WinterContact is a winter tyre designed for 4WD cars. The model is equipped with an asymmetric tread, which quickly evacuates water and minimizes the risk of aquaplaning. The tyre has been strengthened to provide excellent handling not only in typical urban environments but also off-road.
The model is made of a rubber blend, which retains excellent flexibility at very low temperatures. As a result, the tyre has better contact with the ground and better grip, which positively affects driving safety. Continental 4x4 WinterContact has an asymmetric tread which provides excellent control in dry and wet conditions. The internal area, with sipes arranged in a similar fashion to paving slabs, is responsible for performance on dry roads, while the outer surface guarantees traction in the wet. A solid central rib, which consists of massive blocks, is responsible for proper control. It makes driving safer and more stable not only on straight roads, but also on bends and during dynamic manoeuvres. Rapid water removal from under the front of the tyre is ensured by wide circumferential channels and lateral grooves. As a result, good grip is maintained regardless of the weather. Continental 4x4 WinterContact is the ideal solution for all drivers who appreciate excellent performance and who don't want to be constrained by weather conditions.
