Product description & features for Continental Winter Contact TS860 (Winter Tyre)

The Continental Winter Contact TS860 is a winter tyre designed to build on the safety performances and abilities of the successful TS 850.

The WinterContact TS 860 was named as the winner of the Auto Express winter tyre test - 2016.

To deliver a more effective braking performance, even on icy roads, Continental have produced 'Liquid Layer Drainage'. This new system works by incorporating an extra channel that is moulded throughout the tyre's tread block to allow water to quickly drain - helping to reduce braking distances on icy and slushy roads.

Continental have designed the WinterContact TS 860 with a V-shaped tread pattern, featuring 'SnowCurve' technology. With its 3D groove wall structure and, additional groove, the tyre is able to enhance the meshing effect when driving on snow - this helps to deliver stronger grip and enable more powerful better traction when driving on snow.

Tyres preforming well - thanks to UK weather already validated in snow, heavy rain and mist. Good grip in all conditions, good performance in aqua planing conditions.

Noticeable improvement with winter tyres over existing Continental Eco Contact summer tyres.

Too early to tell as we have not had any really cold weather. As expected, they do produce some road noise but you get used to this after a couple of days/weeks.

They are performing well. A bit noisier than the summer tyres on dry surfaces, but are comfortable, and roadholding and handling has been good on both wet and dry winter surfaces, with strong braking performance. Today, I have been able to drive them in snow conditions for the first time, and they grip the snow well, both on hills and on the flat. In particular, they grip well under braking, and stop in a controlled straight line. In this respect, they are much better than the Michelin Cross-Climate+ all season tyres I have on another vehicle (though these are almost as good otherwise on snow-grip). I cannot compare fuel consumption with that on summer tyres - I will have a better idea when I change over in April.

Excellent. Other cars have struggled in the snow and ice, but not mine. Amazed by the grip in this weather!

Bought these tyres because they are well regarded but they don’t suit the rear of my BMW E92 at all, handling was verging on dangerous compared to the Michelin winters they replaced. I’ve no doubt on some other vehicles they would be fine. Trialling them on the front now but failing that they’ll have to go.
