Continental ExtremeWinterContact tires not only get you to where you want to go in the harshest of winter weather conditions, but they also provide excellent performance and handling as well. In fact, we put these Continental winter tires right behind the Bridgestone Blizzaks in terms of drivability and overall performance.
The tire itself features an aggressive asymmetrical tread design with a tread compound that delivers superior performance. The unique technology Continental uses makes the tread flexible in all temperature ranges. Instead of becoming hard and unforgiving in the coldest of temps, it will remain flexible and allow you to maintain much better traction than other snow tires. Add to that the independent tread blocks, lateral grooves and added sipes, and you have a tire that provides all you need for the upcoming winter season.
A tread depth indicator built into the tires will let you know when you have reached 50% of the useable life from the tread.
