ExtremeWinterContact is Continental Tire's Studless Ice and
Snow winter / snow tire developed for the drivers of coupes,
sedans and minivans, as well as pickups, crossovers and
sport utility vehicles looking for traction on winter's
slushy, snow-covered and icy roads. The ExtremeWinterContact
is designed to deliver serious performance in winter weather
The ExtremeWinterContact uses an advanced high-tech winter
tread compound that remains flexible in freezing
temperatures to enhance snow and ice traction. This compound
is molded into an asymmetric tread pattern that blends dry
road handling with foul-weather traction. The elevated bases
of the lateral grooves produce a stiffer tread pattern for
improved dry handling while independent tread blocks
featuring structured high-density sipes provide the multiple
gripping edges to enhance traction and braking on snow.
ExtremeWinterContact tires meet the industry's severe snow
service requirements and are branded with the
When the ExtremeWinterContact is approximately 50 percent
worn, a winter tread depth indicator molded into the design
lets the driver know that the remaining tread is reaching
the end of its ability to provide beneficial snow traction.
Install ExtremeWinterContact tires in sets of four only.
Due to the traction capabilities of the ExtremeWinterContact,
Continental recommends using ExtremeWinterContact only in
sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics
and tire performance.
