Continental ContiWinterContact TS800 is a winter tyre that ensures driving safety and excellent performance in difficult weather conditions. This model is good for city cars of compact and medium class. The directional tread design performs very well in mud, water and ice.
The tread pattern resembles honeycomb, which increases its rigidity. It helps to achieve excellent stability on dry roads, which translates into greater safety and travelling comfort. The tread grooves are arranged in the shape of a wedge, helping to quickly and more efficiently evacuate water. The shape of Continental ContiWinterContact TS800 helps to protect the car against aquaplaning and ensures optimum traction regardless of weather conditions. The compact tread blocks work well on icy roads to ensure optimum contact with the road and better manoeuvrability. This helps to reduce braking distance and maintain better traction during sudden and unexpected manoeuvres. On snow-covered roads, proper driving parameters are ensured by many tread edges that "bite" into the snow and facilitate driving through turns on this difficult surface. The blend used in Continental ContiWinterContact TS800 has great flexibility in extreme temperatures. It increases the ground-contact area of the tyre, improving its traction and driving comfort. The model is a very good option for drivers who appreciate maximum performance regardless of the season.
