The ExtremeWinterContact has been developed based on Continental’s innovative winter tire technology and its 135-year history of building award-winning tires.

ExtremeWinterContact is engineered with an advanced tread compound and structured siping to dramatically improve ice and snow traction.  The tire also delivers noticeable improvements in wet performance, excellent fuel efficiency, extended wear and ride comfort; and considerable improvements in dry performance.

Features & Benefits:  ExtremeWinterContact is engineered with an advanced tread compound and structured siping to dramatically improve ice and snow traction.  The tire also delivers noticeable improvements in wet performance, excellent fuel efficiency, extended wear and ride comfort; and considerable improvements in dry performance.

“This will be Continental Tire’s best winter tire to date,” said Tony Talbert, light truck and winter tire manager, Continental Tire North America.   “The ExtremeWinterContact will deliver an extreme new level of traction seen in the industry today.”

ExtremeWinterContact also features elevated lateral grooves which result in a stiffer pattern for improved dry handling; and inclined longitudinal grooves for greater driving force for excellent traction and braking on snow.  Multiple gripping edges give excellent traction and braking on snow, and a high-tech flexible tread compound, combined with high sipe density, work together to deliver reduced braking distance, even on ice.

UTQG Treadwear Rating:  N/A

And like the other tires in the ExtremeContact line-up, Continental is backing it with one of our strongest warranties:  A 30-day Customer Satisfaction ride guarantee, a Manufacturer’s Workmanship Limited warranty for 72 months – with free replacement up to 12 months, and Road Hazard Coverage for 12 months
