The Continental WinterContact TS 870is a premium winter tyre that has been developed as a successor to the award-winning TS 860. Featuring a new polymer compound and a redesigned tread for snow and ice performance, the new version offers even better performance in the most demanding conditions.

The German manufacturer states that the WinterContact TS 870 has achieved the following as compared to its predecessor:

  • Reduce braking distance on ice by 5%.

  • Improve handling on a snowy road by 5%.

  • Extend tyre life span by 7%

  • Reduce rolling resistance by 4%.

How has this been achieved? The new tread design has more blocks and sipes to clear snow and mud from the tyre surface. What's more, the edge-rich design transfers dynamic forces better, preventing grip breaking on snow. Also innovative are the pocket sipes that are responsible for the tyre's ability to cope with accumulated snow.

Of great importance for the performance of the WinterContact TS 870 in typical winter conditions is the material from which it is made. The Cool Chili rubber compound contains special resin admixtures, which makes it flexible. It provides shorter braking distances on wet roads, as well as slower wear and more efficient rolling.

The new winter tyre from the German manufacturer also stands out in terms of noise. The low noise level generated during driving makes it one of the quietest winter tyres.

    Opinion from outside the UK

    An AWESOME tyre for snow conditions!!! For a trip to the mountains, it worked perfectly. I had great fun driving down the mountain's snowy serpentines. Simply excellent traction when accelerating, braking as well as cornering. Moderately quiet, which is also very important to me. The tyres were still "warm" at the time of purchase, produced 6 weeks before. I am very satisfied with them. For the summer I have a Continental PremiumContact 6, also fabulous. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I highly recommend these tyres. Although I looked for a very long time, I ended up with those very good tyres. They handled the harshest weather conditions; in my opinion, compared to medium-shelf tyres, they’re great value for money. It’s worth paying a hundred bucks extra and enjoy really good tyres for a long time. Read more Collapse
