The Continental ContiEcoContact 3 is a summer touring passenger tire. This model is very economical, as the reduced rolling resistance helps lower the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The driving force is also evenly distributed on the tire’s road contact patch, which prevents irregular wear and slows down the wear rate of the tire. The full-tread also keeps its excellent wet and dry traction and road grip, even as the tread wears out. This model is, however, not suited for driving in winter. The ContiEcoContact 3 offers a puncture resistant compound and additional durability at high speeds.
Exceptional wet and dry traction and road grip are guaranteed, but the tire will not perform well in winter weather.
The tire is hydroplaning resistant, as the tread grooves channel the water from beneath the footprint.
The tire’s reduced rolling resistance, due to the tread compound, lowers the CO2 emissions and fuel usage.
Longer Tread Life
The evenly distributed driving pressure prevents irregular wear on the tire, making the tread life last longer.
The tire does not lose its traction as it wears out, since the deep tread sipes maintain its excellent grip.
The tire has excellent high speed durability and resistance to punctures due to its slightly reinforced structure.
