The CrossContact UHP is Continental’s Street/Sport Truck Summer tire designed for luxury-oriented and high-performance four-wheel drive sport utility vehicles. Like all summer tires, CrossContact UHP tires are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.*
CrossContact UHP tires use a silica-enhanced tread compound to combine wet and dry road grip with rolling resistance comparable to passenger car tires. The compound is molded into an asymmetric tread pattern that features stable outboard shoulder blocks linked to a continuous rib to promote steering precision and cornering stability. Independent tread blocks flank a circumferential center rib to enhance directional stability and straight-line tracking. Multiple lateral grooves are combined with four, wide circumferential grooves to promote efficient water drainage that enhances hydroplaning resistance and wet traction.
*Several Original Equipment (O.E.) sizes are branded with the M+S symbol to identify they meet all-season design standards and are suitable for driving in occasional light snow. These sizes are identified as M+S on the tire’s Specs tab.
