Do you drive a coupe, sedan, minivan or crossover vehicle?

Are you looking for a set of tires to keep you safe during those cold, harsh winter months?

The Wintercontact SI (Snow and Ice) is Continental’s Studless Ice and Snow winter tire.

When the snow starts falling and the rain begins turning into slippery ice, you want a tire that holds you to the road for dear life.

It offers exceptional handling and traction in snow, slush and on ice combined with stellar wet performance and satisfying ride comfort.

Steering response is extremely communicative.

The Wintercontact SI doesn’t lose traction without warning, and even when it does let loose slightly, it recovers quickly and efficiently. To maximize grip on slippery surfaces, the Wintercontact SI’s tread compound is designed to remain flexible in order to adapt to extremely cold temperatures.

Continental WINTERCONTACT SI Tread

And to improve braking in snow, slush, rain and on ice covered roads surfaces, the Wintercontact SI uses Continental’s +Silane additives that’s molded into a directional tread design.

The tire also features multi-angled zig-zag sipes and ridged grooves to increase the number of the tread surface snow biting edges to further improve wet road and wintertime traction.

Continental’s Wintercontact SI is a phenomenal winter tire that has no real weaknesses. It delivers top class winter driving performance and instills the confidence you need to feel safe driving in hazardous winter road conditions.

Tremendous grip in the snow

The Wintercontact SI is branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol to show it meets the industry’s severe snow service requirements. And to let you know when the tire is reaching the limit of its traction capabilities, a winter tread depth indicator is molded into the tread design that appears when the tire is approximately 50 percent worn. How helpful is that?

For a winter tire, the Wintercontact SI keeps quiet on the road with good ride comfort that is both smooth and pleasing.

The Wintercontact SI is available in sizes ranging from 15 to 20 inches, and Continental back their tire with a 30 day customer satisfaction trial and a 90,000 mile tread wear warranty, 3 years roadside assistance, and 12 months road hazard insurance if you’re a member of their Total Confidence Plan.

The Continental Wintercontact SI is right up there with the top tires in its class. If you’re looking for a smooth, quiet ride with excellent ice and snow traction that holds steady when cornering in all types of weather conditions, you will love these tires.

These tires give you the confidence of having firm grip to the road in both light and deep snow. Driving on packed snow or ice is nothing to worry about. With the Continental Wintercontact SI on your car you feel like you can go through anything.
