Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 features

The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Information on the tyre: Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 is a winter tyre designed for medium-class vehicles and compact cars. The model performs very well in extreme weather conditions and ensures an excellent grip. Due to its directional tread, Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 features an adequate grip both on dry and wet surfaces.

Braking distance on snow and ice has been reduced thanks to the increased number of blocks and sipes. Better transmission of transverse forces during cornering comes from the use of more tyre edges. With this, driving is stable and comfortable even in adverse weather conditions. The designers have increased the total number of sipes on the tyre and this translates into more efficient water drainage and thus, better grip on ice and snow.

The model also features a better transmission of lateral forces which was obtained with the use of a harder filling material and additional bead toe reinforcement. With such a design, the tyre ensures better driving and lower rolling resistance which translates into reduced fuel consumption. All of this makes Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 very economical in use.

The tyre was made using a modern compound, which makes for slow tread wear. Due to this, Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 has an extended life. The tyre is a very good solution for all drivers who appreciate grip and road safety just as much as excellent performance.

Information on the manufacturer:

Their models are in the premium rated segment, which means that they are characterised by top quality execution and excellent driving parameters. Continental have 22 production plants located all over the world. Apart from their own brand, they are a majority shareholder in such companies as Uniroyal, Barum, Viking, Matador and Semperit.

    Firstly, I wanted to buy Firestone WinterHawk 1 but these are not being manufactured anymore. That is why I kept on searching for tyres with a similar tread. I chose Continental ContiWinterContact TS850. I have been using them for one winter season and I am satisfied with their quality. The tyres are quiet and I have an impression that the car drives better than on my summer Dunlops. The driving is quiet and comfortable and very safe in snow. I have never had problems on road with these tyres. They provide really good grip even if you drive a diesel with a high torque on a roundabout, They are great in rainy weather but I think they are a bit louder in wet conditions (I would not say it is a drawback - it is rather normal). When it comes to pure ice roads, it is obvious that only the snow tyres with spikes would be useful there. However, I have not noticed any signs of wear on the tyres. They could have been a bit cheaper but still the price is quite reasonable. The fuel consumption has not changed significantly. Generally speaking it is a pleasure to drive a car on these tyres. I recommend them to everyone who drives often in the city. I have tyres with the T speed rating (up to 118 mph) and I have driven on them with the max. speed of 130 mph. I have not experienced any vibrations or noise at all. It is simply luxe:)

    I have done the mileage around 3200 miles on these tyres. Driving sensations are very positive. I used to drive mainly in the city on GoodYear tyres in the past (I had GY 4seasons previously) and they were quite good although they were all-season tyres. I knew that in this year I will have to drive in hard terrain so I have decided to buy Continental ContiWinterContact TS850. I have them in the size 195/65/R15. When it comes to the rolling resistance I have not noticed an increased fuel consumption. I have not experienced any problems while driving in snow and slush. On the wet road I have not noticed an aquaplaning phenomenon. The braking distance is perfect. I thought the tyres will have some problems on ice since majority of them do. However, they surprised me positively. Once I stopped my car immediately without a long skid although I was driving at high speed. Admittedly, the braking systems helped the car to slow down but I think the tyres contributed significantly to the outcome. I think it is really worth to spend a bit more money and buy these tyres in order to have a guarantee of safety.

    Tyres are as good as I thought. I am fully satisfied with their quality. They meet my expectations. I did not have any problems with driving my car in winter. I was wondering how deep I can drive into the snow without getting stuck. The tyres turned out to be great both in deep snow and slush. They are perfect on dry surface as well (especially in corners). The ABS/ESP systems did not have to activate because a car did not skid at all. The tyres are quiet since they have been designed to absorb a road noise, making the driving more comfortable. I think that after changing the tyres pressure to the value recommended by the manufacturer the driving will be even more comfortable! I will check that in next winter season. My car is heavy and I drive rather fast but I have not noticed any wear symptoms. I strongly recommend.

    The tyres purchased after several hours of reading about their safety, performance and comparisons between Continental and different premium brands. I had to choose the best and the safest tyres available as I knew they will be mounted on my wive's car. I have decided to buy the Continental ContiWinter Contact TS850 tyres. After using them in different weather conditions like snow, slush, rain and mud, I can say that this choice was as good as the one I have made 10 years ago when I decided to marry my present wife. The tyres turned out to be tremendous. Had I had a possibility of turning back the clock, I would not have purchased different tyres. I do recommend these tyres as well as the Oponeo online shop. The delivery of the tyres was very fast. The price is simply great and the quality of the tyres is astonishing!
