Technical Details


Chamfered Edge Technology

ExtremeContact™ DWS 06 has a unique “chamfered edge” technology for dry performance. This dry road surface technology generates greater acceleration grip, handling and braking traction in dry conditions. Solid outer shoulder and chamfered pattern edges concentrates on a maximum surface contact, resulting in increased traction.


Superb Wet Handling.

The Continental ExtremeContact™ DWS 06 has high void to tread ratio which improves water evacuation for outstanding wet handling. Void to tread ratio means the amount of void area in the tread vs. the amount of tread pattern making contact with the road surface. This void allows water to be absorbed into the pattern and then quickly evacuated.

Visual Indicator
for optimum performance.

Tuned Performance Indicators alert drivers about tire's performance level in Dry, Wet and Snow conditions.

DWS indicates tire is tuned for optimum performance (D for Dry, W for Wet, S for Snow).

When indicators disappear, tire is no longer tuned for optimum performance in that particular road condition.


Reduced Rolling Resistance and long tread wear.

The Continental ExtremeContact™ DWS 06 has industry leading treadlife combined with lower rolling resistance and improved energy delivery to the road surface. This outstanding combination of traction, long wear and reduced rolling resistance is accomplished thought “Dynamic Temperature Distribution”.


Improves tread life while enhancing grip on wet roads and provides precise steering for maximum control.


Outstanding Snow-On-Snow Traction.

Traction Grooves Provide Additional Biting Edges inside of the groove for Enhanced Snow Traction when you Need it Most.
