It’s when temperatures fall in the autumn that road safety becomes even more important. The rubber used in summer tyres begins to harden at 7°C, reducing their grip on surfaces.
Thanks to an innovative rubber compound, the winter tyres made by Continental remain flexible and elastic even when the thermometer plunges well below zero. So you can relax,
safe in the knowledge that we are looking after you.
In Europe, tyres are required by law to have at least 1.6 mm of tread. However, experts agree that tyres with less than 4 mm are not suitable for winter use and can increase the risk of an accident, especially in cold weather. The lower the tread depth, the greater the braking distance. For this reason, drivers should check their winter tyres at the beginning
of each winter driving season.
