Continental 4x4 Contact tyres are premium summer tyres that have been designed for SUV owners. They guarantee quiet and comfortable driving both on asphalt and on unstable ground.
Thanks to its unique tread pattern, the tyre provides good performance and optimum grip in all conditions. Specially designed wide tread grooves ensure stability and efficient water removal during the rain, reducing the risk of aquaplaning. Solid shoulder and asymmetrical tread pattern provide excellent cornering stability. Good grip on asphalt and in moderate off-road conditions is ensured by a dense network of incisions, whereas wide circumferential ribs provide comfort on paved roads. Safety in extreme situations is guaranteed by a short braking distance (even on wet surfaces), precise steering and instant response to steering movements, as well as high directional stability. The tyre’s designers also focused on high acoustic comfort and vibration reduction. This was achieved by alternating tread blocks.
The Continental 4x4 Contact is a high quality product, which is confirmed by high marks in many German rankings. In November 2005, German magazine "Autozeitung" gave it first place from all reviewed tyres for 4x4 SUVs. In 2006, the Touring Club Schweiz, awarded the tyre with the ‘highly recommended’ title. Continental recommends this model to fans of high-performance fast cars. Continental 4x4 Contact tyres are fitted as standard to many high-speed models, such as the Porsche Cayenne. The model is recommended for larger and smaller SUVs with 4WD. Its modern tread design provides a quiet and comfortable drive on asphalt and in moderate off-road conditions
