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.

ContiWinterContact TS 850 Reviews

Have them for two years, horrible in second year.High wear on the edges and weery poor grip on wet.Better than ug8 butt still would not buy again. They were made in romania.
Yes that mileage is not a typo - I just checked my service history and I fitted them in September 2015 at approx 31500 miles. Since then I've just clocked 75000 miles, save a few weeks on track tyres this summer. Bought as a full set of 4 to replace a frankly shocking mixed bag of budget rubber they were immediately quieter by a big margin. The Colt is only 1050 kgs or so and despite a fast road style they STILL had just under 4mm of tread depth remaining but had obviously given their best as in dry conditions they seemed to get sharper - probably due to less rubber flexing as they wore down - but in damp to wet conditions it was obviously starting to loose bite, as well as the ride getting a little brittle. As expected in cold to full on wintry conditions they excelled to a laughable degree. When the UK ground to a halt last year it was almost cartoonishly funny to drive past everything stuck, sliding and abandoned - from the outside it must have looked reckless but I assure you the safe margin was huge without nudging their limits. I wish I had a dashcam then to post how on hitting a blizzard on the M65 towards Blackburn how much traction and grip they had. On the way back over the Moors towards Manchester I counted 3 cars written off and in ditches but the little Colt was just planted. Braking and cornering were safe as long as you didn't take daft risks. Overall they were fantastic - even fuel economy was improved. The only downside really was lack of steering sharpness and dry braking 'feel' but they weren't the P (sport) versions. Just replaced them with a pair of TS860 and Michelin Alpin 6 as I couldn't get a full set of TS860 in this size.
Hello. Initial tread: 8,5mm After 90.000 km, 4,5mm tread (22.500km per mm); I like to care my tyres.
