Continental PureContact LS. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: All weather traction; Enhanced controllability; Fuel efficient drive; Reduced road vibrations; . OVERVIEW: The Continental PureContact LS is a touring all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. Continental offers a 70,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.The tire promotes first-rate all season traction. It utilizes its special compound blend and asymmetric tread pattern to boost the dry, wet and winter weather road gripping capability. The polymer and +Silane tire compound maintains its flexibility even in colder temperatures, while the detailed siping design and optimal tread block placement enhance the number of biting edges gripping the road surface throughout the year. The better traction also improves the ice and snow traction and road gripping ability. The tread design’s circumferential and angled lateral grooves actively resist hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the tire’s footprint. The upgraded traction and hydroplaning prevention work together to ensure a secure driving experience.The special compound blend also manages to boost the tire’s fuel efficiency. It ensures exceptional year round traction while lowering the tire’s overall weight. In this manner, the model’s rolling resistance is decreased. The rolling resistance is the pressure affecting the tire that determines the amount of energy the vehicle needs to keep the tires in motion. The lowered rolling resistance reduces the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions greatly. As a result, the tire guarantees a fuel efficient and environmentally friendly performance.The model’s tread design and stronger internal structure upgrade its controllability. The asymmetric tread features keep the tire close to the road surface at all times, while the polyester casing and the twin steel belts maintain the tire’s optimal shape during the drive. This enhances the steering responsiveness and accuracy to the driver’s commands and stabilizes the structure against the driving pressure affecting it during the drive. The shoulder tread block placement with the siping detail heightens the number of biting edges firmly gripping the road surface during cornering and maneuvering, which significantly boosts the cornering ability and power.The PureContact LS ensures a comfortable drive. The special Comfort Ride Technology and the internal structure’s single strand polyester casing manage to decrease the road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin while the tires are in motion. The Comfort Ride Technology places an underlay below the tread area which disconnects the tread from the tire’s casing. The single strand polyester casing on the other hand enables the tire to closely follow the road surface. This combination allows the tire to absorb the shock of driving and lower the road vibrations felt during the drive, increasing the driving enjoyment. Manufacturers recommend changing tires every 10 years. As long as tires are properly stored before they are sold, the year of their manufacture will not shorten their service life.
