ContiWinterContact TS790 V
The ContiWinterContact TS790 is
Continental's Performance Winter tire developed to combine good snow
& ice traction with “European” high-speed winter driving
performance. The ContiWinterContact TS790 tire is for the drivers of
performance sport coupes who require winter driving traction on dry,
wet & snow-covered roads.
The ContiWinterContact TS790 tire molds an advanced silica tread
compound into an asymmetric tread design that features broad,
rounded outer shoulder blocks to enhance dry road handling
performance. These features are combined with intermediate tread
blocks separated by three wide circumferential & lateral grooves
to enhance wet road traction & hydroplaning resistance. The tread
blocks also feature Cross Linked Sipes (CLS) to provide the multiple
biting edges necessary to enhance snow & ice traction without
resorting to traditional metal studs.
While ContiWinterContact TS790 Performance Winter tires meet the
industry’s severe snow service requirements they were not originally
intended to be distributed in North America & are not branded with
the snowflake-on-the-mountain symbol.
The ContiWinterContact TS790 tire features blackwall styling & is
available from The Tire Rack in the H-speed rated, 195/55R16 size.
Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 Tires on All Wheels
Due to the traction capabilities of the ContiWinterContact TS790,
they should be fitted only in sets of four to provide the best
handling characteristics & tire performance.
