Continental launches new winter tyre for vans

Published 21 January 2016

Continental has launched VanContact Winter, a new winter tyre designed specifically for vans. 

The new tyre has been created to provide better handling on snow and icy surfaces, as well as improving traction on wet roads.

The tyre replaces the VancoWinter 2 in the Continental line-up and offers a number of improvements, including a 15 per cent reduction in rolling resistance to aid fuel economy. Zigzag circumferential grooves and evenly spaced snow pockets in the shoulder blocks should also improve the compression of snow in the grooves, making for greater grip.

The tyre is available in 12 sizes and can be fitted to most vans, varying from compact commercials to large panel vans.

I can tell you how you can easily find and purchase a quality tractor. I remember looking for one myself and I can tell you where to go and there should be no problem. I have found compact tractors here and I can tell you that there are probably the best tractors there can be. I was happy with them and hope I can help you too. Good luck with that.
