The ideal block placement and the zigzag grooves provide great grip in various weather conditions. Their combination generates traction in dry, wet, and light winter weather situations. The groove pattern also offers minimal hydroplaning resistance, further boosting traction on wet roads. Yet, careful driving is advised in harsher weather conditions.The Continental SContact (MO) offers good controllability. The narrow, flat footprint closely follows the road surface at all times, upgrading its steering responsiveness and driving stability. As a result, the driver has exceptional control over the vehicle. 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.
