The TrueContact Tour is Continental's Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for drivers of family sedans, coupes, minivans and small crossovers looking for sure-footed traction, a smooth, quiet ride and long tread life. TrueContact Tour tires are designed to combine premium levels of ride and noise quality with responsive handling and confident grip in dry, wet and wintry conditions, including light snow.
The all-season tread compound of the TrueContact Tour features temperature-activated functional polymers that aid tread life and fuel efficiency, and the symmetric pattern enables easy rotation intervals to combat irregular wear. Comfort Ride Technology incorporates an underlay beneath the tread that is designed to isolate the tread from the casing and reduce the amount of perceptible vibration in the cabin. Continental's +Silane additives enhance traction in slippery conditions, and the wide, circumferential grooves allow water to flow through the contact patch for improved hydroplaning resistance. Siped intermediate tread blocks and lateral notches in the shoulders create the biting edges needed for grip in snowy or icy conditions, and traction grooves trap snow in the tread to provide snow-to-snow traction.
The internal construction of the TrueContact Tour utilizes a single ply, polyester casing. The low- to mid-apex balances handling performance and ride comfort, while dual steel belts are reinforced by a high-strength, spirally wound nylon overlay to enhance durability and high-speed uniformity.
