    The size of my Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 tyres is 185/65R15. The tyres have very soft rubber compound - I thought that I would destroy the tyre when I accidentally hit a hole. The behaviour of the tyres in dry conditions at 90 MPH is marvellous. They are almost inaudible and do not mix with the sound of the engine (1.9 DCI). I also had an emergency situation at ca. 50 MPH - I had to make a sudden maneuver, and the car didn't swerve at all. The car behaved exactly as I wanted. The behaviour of Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 on wet surface is also very predictable. I could drive through deep puddles of water without any problems. Braking is also good. They don't fall into aquaplaning, both during sudden braking (ABS is switched on, of course) and in the corners. And now the best. Behaviour on snow. Paved road, snow, speed of 45 MPH and the car behaves as if it was on dry surface, even in tight corners! I had a situation where the guy behind me was driving an Audi 80, I don't know what tyres he had, but he was on my rear bumper almost till the end, where he swerved off into the outside lane (luckily it was free). When it comes to behaviour on ice, of course there will be no miracle and only studded tyres will be good. However, I can recommend Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 with a clear conscience.

    My Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 already passed their first test. In comparison to Goodyear Ultra Grip 7 they are generally quieter, but can be loud in the corners; they are also a bit louder on a thin layer of water and bumps, but on the other hand, they are firmer and handle better despite being T-rated. They behave even better on snow and frozen snow, or actually ice - when going uphill on 5th gear, ASR doesn't even have to react during accelerating. They are simply sensational when braking - even my wife was surprised that ABS doesn't switch on. Just as UG7, if Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 lose their grip they instantly gain it back after releasing throttle or brake pedal. Driving up the icy hills in the forest isn't a problem. Braking in dry and wet conditions seems to be better. There's no aquaplaning on straights. They often lose traction on snow and ice but 160 BHP and 250 Nm at 1500 RPM do the job here. Generally, our impressions after first drives are very positive, even despite the fact we were "gifted" with Romanian-made set. But it looks like Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 preserves the high quality, no matter what. Their visual side may not be superb, but the tests only confirm how good the tyre is. I definitely recommend.

    Before I bought Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830, I used some Michelins. They were really bad. Maybe because they were a bit old already. But the tread was about 7 mm, so it's hard for me to say. In any case, in the corners they may the car swerve off its driving lane, and on straights you had to be very careful I know one thing - I won't buy Michelins ever again. I have a bad experience with them even when it came to bike tyres - once when braking, my rear wheel swerved off to the side! This is just terrible. Dangerous for your health and life. As all other French products, I guess... However, Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 is simply sensational. I forgot what it means to have a problem of driving out of snow or driving in deep snow - the drive is the same as in summer on a paved road. On ice they slide a bit, but it's normal. What's important - you don't lose control on the ice and you can feel and see that you slow down when braking. I have a heavy car - 1700 kgs, with a big 3.0 l engine, and rear wheel drive. These tyres really give me a feeling of safety. You can drive confidently even at higher speeds. I can recommend Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 with all my heart, they are simply great, and I'm totally satisfied with this purchase.

    I searched for a tyre for all surface types for a long time, and I finally chose Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830. I drive a Ford Mondeo MK4 1.6 EcoBoost with 160 BHP, and there are no problems with the tyres transferring such power to the wheels. They are quiet and stable.They handle very well on the motorway, even at 120 MPH and don't cause the car to swerve out of its driving lane in the corners. I tested them in deep snow and Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 easily made the car go forward, even when I started to push some snow along with my front bumper. In the parking lot where the car is, snow ploughs drive very often, creating humps as a result. Some cars can't go through them, while I can easily drive in and out. It also does a great job on fresh snow. On ice only studded tyres can be 100% good, but these ones also do pretty well. You just have to be careful with the throttle. It can also be a fault of high engine power. I am a professional driver, so certainly I'm not inexperienced. For me, Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 is what I was looking for. Once I had Debica Frigo and also praised it but these outclass them in every way. I would these tyres in this size. And the store as well. Nice contact and fast delivery.

    Well, I have to say that this is the best winter tyre I've ever had. Unfortunately, my experience is very small. Previously I used Barum, Uniroyal, Goodyear, and Semperit tyres. Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 is the best winter tyre which outclasses all the others. The first impression after leaving the workshop - tyres weren't replaced! I couldn't believe they were so quiet on dry pavement - and they were. I have Goodyears for summer, and they have the same noise level, if not a bit higher. It was unbelievable. So, I decided to hit the motorway - and I was amazed, they were still as quiet as before. I waited for the rain then, I got surprised yet again. I was shocked by the way Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 gripped in the corners and braked. Of course, I don't compare them with Barums, but with Uniroyals. An then finally, it snowed. And it turned out I've never had such a great tyre, both on snow and on slush. Even on the side roads covered with snow (unpaved) the car went like on tracks. The only drawback is the price, especially the one at the moment, but I do not regret a single penny spent on Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 (I got them much earlier and much cheaper). I definitely recommend.

Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS 830 features

Type: winter tyre

Class: premium – the best performance and top quality.

Intended use: passenger cars of medium and high class with powerful engines.

Tread: directional - V-shaped grooves ensure fast and efficient evacuation of water.

Sizes: from 15 to 16 inches.

Continental ContiWinterContact TS830 is a premium winter tyre designed for medium and high class passenger cars with powerful engines. The tyre reaches perfect operational parameters during braking on snow, ice and mud, ensuring road safety regardless of weather conditions.

The model offers superior braking on extremely difficult surfaces thanks to the large number of blocks on the shoulder and a large surface of 'cutting' edges. The tyre gives shorter braking distances on wet roads due to the use of stiffer blocks in the central part of the tread and a large number of sipes. On dry surfaces, excellent performance is supported by a stiffer belt. It makes the drive stable and the communication between the steering system and tyre faster. The model has a directional tread pattern, which works very well on wet surfaces. As a result of the arrow-shaped arrangement of grooves, the model more efficiently removes water, which translates into a lower risk of aquaplaning. The designers took care of the optimum distribution of forces acting upon the tyre. Consequently, the wear is slower and more uniform, enabling Continental ContiWinterContact TS830 to offer you full performance throughout its service life without worrying about deteriorating grip and other parameters over time. This model will meet the expectations of drivers who expect durable and reliable tyres.

Manufacturer Info: Continental is a manufacturer of premium tyres with excellent performance, comfort and maximum performance regardless of the road and weather conditions. The company owns the majority of shares in other companies including Barum, Uniroyal, Semperit, Viking and General Tire. Currently, Continental operates 22 production sites worldwide. The company has been supplying tyres since 1871. The headquarters of the company are located in Hanover, Germany.
