Optimised tread design with large contact area gives better road grip. This results in better cornering stability and reliable braking performance in dry conditions.
The improved pattern with water dispersion ability holds the road surface better in wet conditions. This offers best possible grip and shorter braking distance on wet roads.
The tyre achieves longer tyre durability and eco-friendly performance thanks to a new generation of tread compound with low abrasion and optimised rolling behaviour.
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.
