    I decided to buy these tyres and Im very happy. Before I bought thise tyres a little I read about them in internet and they were very positive reviews. I strongly recommend Continental tyres, no problems with braking in the winter, in the corners are holding confidently. In my opinion is better to pay more for top class tyres and feel confident and safe on the road.

    I would recommend Continental tyres anyone who cares about the safety and quality of the tyres. As for me, keep tyres got better in the wet than my summer tyres (wider), acceleration also is effective, well tyre sticks to the asphalt.

    I am fully satisfied. The only one aspect from which I would have expected something more was rolling resistance, but cannot expect a good seal and a low resistance. I do recommend.

    The Continental TS 850 is really good tyre. The are very silent and above all efficient (reduction in consumption). Excellent grip even on ice and in deep snow and slush.

Product description

Continental WinterContact TS 850 P 245/40 R18 97 V XL, FR

Technical description:

Each of the tyre's features has been designed with care for even the smallest of details. The model is intended as the future replacement for two tyres which achieved considerable success: the Continental ContiWinterContact TS 830 P and the Continental ContiCrossContact Winter and performs even better than its predecessors thanks to the outstanding design of the individual tread features. This design not only improves handling on snow and dry roads, but also reduces braking distances in all of the conditions which may be encountered in winter. The model is also the perfect choice for SUV owners, since the tread is ideally suited for providing a high level of safety on unpaved roads. The innovative tread design improves performance on snow by up to 5%.

The tyre's stand-out features include larger angles and shorter distances between the individual blades set on its surface, which - together with the large number of specially designed sharp edges - ensure outstanding performance in the most challenging of winter conditions. The tyre maintains superb grip and delivers short braking distances on wet and dry roads thanks to the sophisticated design of the central section of the tread, which comes into direct contact with the road. The lower sidewall design means that the tyre provides not only a high level of safety, but also outstanding comfort and low rolling resistance, which in turn reduces fuel consumption. The tyre underwent a number of specialised tests before being launched on the market, examining its performance in all the different weather conditions typically encountered at this time of year. All of the test results proved that this is yet another Continental tyre offering truly all-round performance for drivers.

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.

Noise

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.
