Continental Premium Contact 2

Premium Contact 2

Consumer magazine Which? gave the ContiPremiumContact 2 a "Best Buy" recommendation in 2009 (size 205/55R16 W). Its unique 3D tread groove not only improves the braking performance but it also gives greater protection against aquaplaning. The use of cat's paw technology not only gives improved fuel efficiency but also shorter stopping distances. The tyre has a narrow contact patch while in motion for improved fuel efficiency yet when you apply the brakes the contact patch widens and spreads like a cat's paw giving more rubber contact on the road for shorter stopping distances.
