Does This Tire Fit?

The WinterContact SI (Snow and Ice) is Continental's Studless Ice & Snow winter / snow tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles. Designed to operate in slippery wintry weather conditions, WinterContact SI tires enhance traction on cold, wet, snow-covered and icy roads.

Featuring PolarPlus Technology, WinterContact SI tires use Continental's +Silane additives to offer a significant improvement in grip over summer tires by allowing the tread compound to stay pliable when temperatures consistently fall below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The compound is molded into a directional tread design that blends dry road handling with foul-weather traction. High-density multi-angled zigzag sipes increase the number of the tread surface's snow biting edges to enhance wet road and wintertime traction while base-of-the-groove ridges provide additional 3-dimensional snow-biting edges to improve braking traction in deep snow.

WinterContact SI tires meet the industry's severe snow service requirements and are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol.

When the WinterContact SI is approximately 50 percent worn, a winter tread depth indicator molded into the tread design lets the driver know that the remaining tread is reaching the end of its ability to provide beneficial snow traction.

Install WinterContact SI tires in sets of four only.

Due to the traction capabilities of the WinterContact SI, Continental recommends using WinterContact SI only in sets of four to provide the best handling characteristics and tire performance.

Winter tires are not UTQG rated.

Have had these tires on the vehicle for about a month. They have very good grip on snow and ice. As good or better than Michelin X-Ice and Bridgestone Blizzaks that are on my other vehicles. Handle well on dry and wet roads. Very pleased.

I'm not a tire comparison expert but this tire has met my expectations and offers driving confidence, the focus being primarily in the snow and slush traction department.I opted for a narrower tread width and taller sidewall for dealing with the numerous winter potholes and uneven road surfaces but going that route has compromised handling,All things being equal a fair tradeoff all the same.The tire rim package offered great value and 1010TIRES.COM were great to deal with as usual but the Continental Tires rebate program is a sham. Three months on ,numerous calls and emails and still no rebate.Therefore next time round I will opt for the Falken tires instead which offer a more credible rebate program and equal tire performance.
