The Continental WinterContact TS860 S is a winter tyre made for drivers of sports and luxury cars. The tyre was designed for challenging weather and enables drivers to enjoy the full performance of their cars with a high level of safety, regardless of climatic conditions.
The WinterContact TS860 S is an improved version of the popular TS860 model and is adapted for cars with high-power engines. The optimised stiffness of the tyre combined with the increased road contact area, ensures exceptional traction and cornering control. It would be particularly appreciated by drivers who like dynamic and fast driving. Its modernised tread and rubber compound enriched with silica ensure good operation on snowy roads. Additionally, it provides the driver with precise control, guaranteeing maximum safety, even in bad weather and at high speeds. You don't have to worry about a sudden loss of control over the vehicle. The safety of the driver and passengers is also ensured by modern 'Run on Flat' system, which allows the car with a punctured/damaged to drive a distance of 80 km, at an average speed of 80 km/h. You may comfortably reach a tyre specialist, without having to worry about replacing the tyre by yourself at the roadside in bad weather, or the need to use expensive roadside assistance.
The manufacturer also focused on dynamic and sporty driving, providing the WinterContact TS860 S with a reinforced structure to ensure higher durability and load resistance than standard models. These solutions mean that the TS860 S perfectly cooperates with your car and enables you to enjoy your own driving style for the entire life of the tyre. The Continental WinterContact TS860 S was created for the best sports cars with the largest engine power. The product will satisfy the needs of even the most demanding drivers who want to enjoy the full performance of their cars also in winter, regardless of weather conditions.
