Continental ContiWinterContact TS790

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 using the 195/55R16 size 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.
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.
