Winter likes to throw all types of weathers at us: snow, ice and – increasingly – rain. For better handling in the wet, as well as a safer drive in your van or MPU, you can rely on Snow Max 2.
Its tread pattern features a V-shaped design as well as wide lateral grooves on the shoulder. These combine to absorb and quickly disperse water, reducing your risk of aquaplaning.
Heavy loads need special care. That’s why Snow Max 2 is designed to deal with the extra demands of commercial driving, especially in wintery conditions.
Its tread features a V-shaped directional pattern which increases the longitudinal build-up of forces within the tyre, giving you more control and better handling. A large number of ideally-positioned grip edges provide excellent traction and great braking performance on snow and ice - even when driving uphill. Increased lateral pattern stiffness also improves braking on dry roads.
We've developed an optimised material mix for our compound which improves the tyre's resistance to structural wear and, therefore, extends its tread life. The more durable the tyre, the lower the total cost of ownership.
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.
