PremiumContact™ 6
A truly premium experience.

Developed for all classes of passenger cars.

  • Maximum wet braking while improving mileage due to Safety Silica Compounds
  • Extended driving convenience updated by the comfort-optimised performance footprint
  • Sporty driving in every car thanks to handling-optimised pattern design

Safety

Maximum wet braking while improving mileage due to Safety Silica Compounds.
The crystal silica composition enables superior braking performance especially in terms of wet road conditions. While keeping the safety performance at the maximum level, the mileage improved significantly – a solved conflict in tyre development.

Comfort

Extended driving convenience updated by the comfort-optimised performance footprint.
The wear-optimised polymer blend provides an outstanding improvement of more than 15% in mileage performance. In addition, the smooth pattern stiffness improves driving comfort and mileage, and lowers the exterior noise.

Handling

Sporty driving in every car thanks to handling-optimised pattern design.
The advanced macro-block design ensures maximum control and cornering stability. Furthermore, the asymmetric rib geometry provides a better grip under the effect of lateral forces.

SSR - the Self-Supporting Runflat tyre

Changing a tyre at the roadside can be a thing of the past.

  • Drive up to 50 miles at a maximum speed of 50 mph in the event of puncture
  • No spare wheel necessary
  • Compatible with conventional rims
  • Fuel efficient (weight of 4 SSR tyres < = 5 standard tyres)

The Self-Supporting Runflat (SSR) technology is based on a self-supporting reinforced sidewall. When there is a puncture, the sidewall is prevented from being crushed between the rim and the ground, as well as the tyre from slipping off the rim, which can make it impossible to fit a spare tyre.

An SSR tyre not only takes the danger and inconvenience out of punctures, it also helps with fuel efficiency and frees up interior space in your vehicle.

With four SSR tyres fitted you will not need to carry a spare tyre, which means less weight and improved fuel efficiency as result. It also adds up to 80 litres of free space in the boot.

At Continental, we highly recommend fitment on all four wheels and once the SSR tyre has been damaged, a new one needs to be fitted.

Technical requirements:

  • Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) essential
  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC) recommended

SSR Tyre (Deflated)

An SSR tyre has a reinforced sidewall that prevents it from being flattened and ensures the driver can continue driving for up to 50 miles at a maximum speed of 50 mph.

Standard Tyre (Deflated)

When a puncture occurs with a standard tyre the sidewall can become crushed between the rim and the ground. This can cause a potentially dangerous situation like a blowout or the tyre slipping off the rim, which could make it impossible to fit a spare tyre.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
