1 in 3 Vans leaves European factories with Continental Tyre
By offering the highest quality of passenger comfort and safety, the Continental range of van tyres offer solutions for every driving situation. Building on the success of the Vanco tyre, the Vanco 2 offers even better mileage and handling equal to that of a passenger car tyre.
Offering up to 30% more mileage than a conventional van tyre the Vanco 2 also has the added benefits of a cold weather tyre, coming into its own in temperatures below 8 degrees Celsius, when standard van tyres can start to lose grip.
Also available is the VancoContact 2, suited to light vans and multi-purpose vehicles, which combines supreme durability, safety and driver comfort. With a tread pattern based on passenger car tyres, the stiff shoulder design gives excellent handling combined with cornering stability, and the wide circumferential grooves and optimised slips give better grip in the wet for shorter breaking distances, by providing faster water displacement.
