Summer - Winter- All Season tires

When do you need summer tires, winter tires or all season tires?

Continental strongly recommend using the appropriate tire for each season. That means driving on summer tires in the warmer time of the year and with winter tires during the cold period. In this way, safety and commercial aspects are maximised under all weather conditions. All Season tires cannot provide the optimal performance under all conditions.

Rule of thumb: Summer fitment between Easter and October.

During the warmer weather period (temperatures above 7°C) we strongly recommend to use summer tires. Only summer tires can guarantee a high grip levels on wet and dry roads through their special tread patterns and tread compounds.  Summer tires also provide high driving stability in curves and optimum mileage performance at summer temperatures.

What are the advantages of wider winter tires in winter?

On dry or wet roads as well as on compact snow, wide winter tires offer significant advantages over standard  width winter tires. Wide winter tires improve safety aspects due to  better driving characteristics. 

Continental recomments: Choose at least the same or wider winter tire size compared to your summer fitment.
