The TrueContact is Continental’s Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for coupes, sedans, inivans and crossover vehicles. Featuring Continental’s EcoPlus Technology to help conserve fuel, extend treadwear and maintain wet braking grip, TrueContact tires are designed to provide all-season traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, as well as in light snow.
TrueContact tires use an all-season tread compound that features Continental’s Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives to improve treadwear, fuel efficiency and traction on slippery roads. The compound is molded into a symmetric design that provides continuous tread contact with the road to enhance steering response and handling while three wide circumferential grooves promote hydroplaning resistance and wet traction. Siped intermediate tread blocks and Continental’s Traction Grooves (vertical ridges in the circumferential grooves) provide additional biting edges to promote three-dimensional snow-to-snow traction.
The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound jointless polyamide that stabilizes the tread area to promote strength, treadwear and ride uniformity. Continental’s ComfortRide Technology includes a cushioning layer of rubber to absorb vibrations caused by road surface irregularities.
