Product description & features
An Ultra High Performance Winter tyre, the WinterContact TS860 S SSR has been designed for dynamic driving when fitted to high-performance and sports cars. Optimised for short braking distances and precise handling in dry conditions, as well as offering excellent handling properties in snow.
Continental's SSR (Self-Supporting Runflat) technology utilises a reinforced, self-supporting sidewall - preventing the sidewall being crushed in the case of a puncture and allowing the tyre to be driven on to reach a safe stopping place and keeps the tyre from slipping off the rim.
What is an All Season tyre?
Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions - good performance delivered throughout the year. Moderate natural rubber content to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius – enhancing grip. Designed with moderate tread depths that have been engineered to help deliver a longer tread life than many summer tyres
How can I tell an All Season tyre performs in winter weather?
This tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake: This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed rigourous tests to prove it is suitable for driving in winter weather. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
Are All Season tyres suitable for the UK?
Given that the UK suffers from moderate and interchangeable winter conditions - with severe ice and snow becoming uncommon for much of the country - this makes all season tyres a very good choice for our roads. As they are able to cope with these conditions very well.
Do I need to swap my tyres throughout the year?
Given the nature of all season tyres, which can perform equally well in the summer months and the winter months, the need to replace tyres depending on the seasons is not required when all season tyres are fitted.
