Conti introduces latest winter tire for replacement and OE markets

LinkedIn +

Conti has launched the WinterContact TS 860 S, which was developed with a focus on braking distance and handling in the dry, as well as handling performance on snow.

It features a special braking groove – a wide groove running through the center of the tread – providing a large surface with which to build up grip. Stiff, broad shoulder blocks deliver maximum grip for a precise steering response, while the many tread grooves and traction sipes in the tread blocks make for good interlocking with snow.

For the replacement sector, Continental has created a compound that is said to deliver high flexibility in winter. On the original equipment front, bespoke compounds have been developed for auto makers including Audi Sport, BMW M, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche.
