Product description & features
The Continental Eco Contact 5 SUV is a 4x4 tyre that has been designed to be eco-friendlier. It also delivers outstanding safety and features short braking distances on wet roads due to the tread pattern.
The Eco Contact 5 SUV has been designed with optimised rolling resistance – which simply put is the improved ratio of energy the tyre is giving versus the resistance that is put against the tyre - making the Eco Contact 5 SUV an ideal tyre for those who are concerned about the environment but drive long distance.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
