Full Tyre Description

The Continental WinterContact TS 870 has a newly designed high-technology tread design and a new iteration of Conti’s Cool Chili compound with optimised crosslink density, features balanced performance improvements over the TS 860, notably five per cent shorter braking on ice and grip on snow, seven per cent increased tread life, and best-in-class noise, represented by one-wave (70dB) on the EU tyre label. The tyre features 3D interlocking sipes placed to engage with the snow better, and the new Cool Chili compound, which contributes to the increased grip and shorter braking distances in wet conditions. The tyre is designed for fitment on small to medium-sized cars.
