The rallye 4x4 street has an innovative double V-shaped tread pattern which allows the simultaneous displacement of water across both the length and the width of the tyre.
Because water is dispersed so quickly, you have the reassurance of aquaplaning safety and the enjoyment of top performance even on wet roads.
The rallye 4x4 street features wide shoulder blocks. These absorb the forces that act on the tyre when cornering, leaving you with a steady ride, responsive steering in the wet and dry and excellent traction on unpaved and snowy roads – even in light off-road conditions.
The rallye 4x4 street was developed for on-road use, so it's much quieter than other SUV tyres. Its optimised silica compound absorbs some of the shocks experienced when driving and reduces vibrations from the road surface. Thanks to an additional casing layer, the tyre is very robust and provides a smooth off-road feeling.
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.
