    I've been thinking about choosing a winter car tyre for a long time. I have already traveled on various, from the cheapest budget, to premium tyres of different brands. I must admit that I had doubts about whether it is worth buying tyres at this price, but after a whole winter I can say that this choice was very good. The tyres traveled on very different roads and in different parts of the country. They worked great on the highway or express way. Good grip and reaction to steering movements. The braking distance was also not a problem. In the period when the snow fell and during the trips to the mountains undergone baptism of fire, despite fears and strange comments that fitters and friends gave, they were just sensational. In places where others had a problem with the driveway, moving away, I was moving as if there was neither snow nor ice on the road. To sum up: if you have money, take care of your safety and passengers, choose Continental. They will not let you down.

    I chose the tyres for our winter conditions (ie a lot of rain, slush, etc.). In many tyre tests (in our country and foreign) they occupy leading positions and this is confirmed. In our conditions, the winter tyre is great, it behaves well on wet, on snow and on slush. Despite 150 hp and front drive, the traction is really good. A bit worse in deep snow, but at this same time good for such a tread. It is fairly quiet. As for the abrasiveness after traveling 4-4,5 thousand miles it's hard to say, it's not excessive. But the other continental tyres I owned were very good.

    The used tyres are the Continental WinterContact TS 860 195/65 R15 T91 with the label: C - rolling resistance, B - braking on wet, volume - 72 dB. The tyres are probably quieter than the EU label says. On a wet surface, there is a slight slip when starting faster. Rolling resistance is class C and there is actually more fuel consumption than when using class B tyres. The high profile (65) and the T speed index (120 mph) are noticeable at highway speeds and lateral winds.

    Winter in 2017/18 wasn’t hard, but it was snowing few times. From the winter tyre, above all, the good snow grip is expected. Unfortunately, several times I was braking on the snow at low speed and I did not see any difference between this tyre and the others I had before - eg Fulda. I would expect more after the premium class, and as I wrotethe deference was very small if not no noticeable difference.

    Good in the wet, good in the dry, excels in snow. Reassuring predictable tyre. Good at high speed - often one can forget they are winters. Tough too. Only 2 possible gripes - turn in one can feel the blocks moving a fraction (but these are way better than Alpin 5s for that). Also, ride a bit soft on them - but comfy++

Product description

Continental WinterContact TS 860 165/65 R15 81 T

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.


Continental WinterContact TS860 is the successor to TS850 model, one of the best winter tyres on the market. The tyre was tested in more than 47 tests and frequently it was awarded with top grades. This model is recommended by more than 90% of our website users. All the main performance parameters have been improved on the new model. This tyre has a directional tread and is classified as premium.


Continental WinterContact TS860 provides 5% shorter braking distance on wet roads and 4% shorter on ice. In addition, the wet control of the vehicle has been improved, while rolling resistance and wear resistance remain at a level similar to TS850.


Continental WinterContact TS860 is based on modified blend called "Cool Chili", which contains a lot of silica. The result is much more effective braking on wet roads. The blend also contains components that improve traction in winter conditions (on slippery roads and at low temperatures). This all ensures the maximum control over the car during the autumn and winter seasons.


Continental WinterContact TS860 tyres have a cutting-edge grip system for glazed frost. Driving and braking on a slippery surface creates a kind of fluid coat that increases the contact area with the road and reduces the risk of slippage.


The presented tyres are equipped with a directional tread. It has no peripheral grooves, which is typical for most modern winter tyres. Continental WinterContact TS 860 has 3D grooves across the entire tread surface. An additional groove in the tyre wall provides better grip in the snow. This improves the control of the car, facilitates driving through snow and starting in cold conditions.


Continental WinterContact TS 860 is a tyre designed to provide safety on dry, wet, snowy and icy roads. Such conditions are typical from October to March in Central Europe. Therefore, Continental WinterContact TS860 is perfect for the winter season.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.

Noise

Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
