Continental Winter Contact TS860 (Winter Tyre) product description & features

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 - 2018.

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.

Winter Tyres

What are winter tyres?

Winter tyres have been developed to perform best during the colder winter months - when the outside temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius.

How can I tell a winter tyre is suitable for winter weather?

The tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snowflake:

Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake

This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed standardised, controlled, and, rigorous tests. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.

How does a winter tyre perform better in winter?

The compound of a winter tyre contains a higher natural rubber content - helping the tyre to remain flexible in freezing weather and conform to the road surface.

The grooves of winter tyres are typically wider to channel snow and water. The latest generation also have smaller shoulder grooves to improve snow and ice traction.

Can I use winter tyres all year round?

Although winter tyres can be used in other conditions, their performance will not be as efficient as they have been optimised to perform in temperatures under 7°C.

There is also a risk of a winter tyre’s wear rates increasing when drive on in warm temperatures, due to the high silica and natural rubber compound.

We recommend that winter tyres should be fitted as a full set of 4.
