Safe driving in wet conditions with excellent protection against aquaplaning: An optimised tread pattern and the proven Uniroyal sharkskin technology offer enhanced water drainage against aquaplaning. The enhanced water-flow from the pattern center to the outside shoulder grooves guarantee you a safe driving pleasure.
Solving the target conflict between dry and winter performance aspects we developed a well balanced pattern which offers stability as well as winter performance features.
The special geometry of blocks and a multifunctional sipe concept deliver enhanced snow compression and excellent braking performance on both snowy and dry roads.
A stable middle rib and wide shoulder blocks improve handling performance and stabilisation during side forces.
Wear and cost of ownership: Buying one set all season tyres instead of buying summer and winter tyres means lower acquisition and storage costs. But you should also consider that all season tyres are always a compromise all year round. If you are an occasional driver driving mainly in cities where streets are regularly cleared of snow, and also living in a region with mild temperatures and winters the choice of all season tyres could be the right.
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
