    tyre indeed good, but not worth the price - equally good tyres can be bought a lot cheaper. It is simply too expensive, others offer the same thing cheaper for example: Firestone, Sava, Nokian, Uniroyal - such I had. Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 V hold well on the wet and on snow, ice is obvious. For half the price equally good tyres from different brand can be bought. I suggest not throw money away at the brand, my next is Nokian. With Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 V I had to use chains to get over a hil.

    well .. I have spent a bit more than Continental ContiWinterContact TS760 were worth, for sure! but I know that at the same time I reached the top! the tyres are the top shelf ones! I tried them everywhere, especially wet and I'm delighted. I do not regret the Continental ContiWinterContact TS790. I made a holiday in the mountains of Scotland, even through mud, snow and ice. I was really comfortable with those tyres - they are great, but what do you expect from a tyre like this!

    Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 V is a very good winter tyre, do not feel that this is a winter one. The first time I switched to summer tyres (in my case, Dunlop SP Sport 2050 W 225/45 R18 91W) did not notice any difference. Neither in terms of noise, adhesion, abrasion, etc.. Only the appearance of the tyre itself could be a little better, but other than that it is all positives. Worth the money.

    Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 V were checked on another car Audi A8 4.2 300HP, but the size 235/55/R17.Z due to a lower profile at +5 ° C, it felt as if the air descended. But at this size tested in extreme conditions, when everyone put on the chains, I still had no problems with traction, certainly it is thanks to Quattro drive, but the tyres too. Generally, revelation.

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.


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.
