The Continental Wintercontact SI is a winter tire manufactured for passenger tires. The tire has excellent winter weather traction thanks to the tire compound and special tread pattern, and it helps resist hydroplaning by eliminating slush from below the tire footprint. The PolarPlus technology improves the braking ability and shortens the braking distance by providing additional biting edges in snow and on ice. The tire’s handling is enhanced by its directional tread design, which upgrades the steering responsiveness and driving stability. The Wintercontact SI features winter weather tread depth indicators that show when the tire is about to lose its traction.
Winter weather traction
The +Silane additive in the tire compound makes the tread flexible even in winter weather conditions.
The multi-angles zigzag sipes and the traction grooves improve the ice and snow road grip.
The circumferential and lateral grooves improve the tire’s hydroplaning resistance.
The PolarPlus technology improves the braking power and shortens the braking distance on snow and ice.
The directional tread pattern provides additional road grip which improves the steering responsiveness and stability.
Tread Depth Indicators
The winter tread depth indicators show when the tire is about to lose its excellent winter weather traction.
