Continental Tire has introduced its most innovative new tire line to date, the ProContact with EcoPlus Technology. This premium all-season tire was developed to deliver improved fuel economy and tread wear, reduce harmful CO2 emissions and surpass the competition. What's more, it's claimed the tire provides these benefits without sacrificing performance, especially wet braking.
Engineered using the most advanced techniques, the ProContact with EcoPlus Technology goes beyond other premium touring tires by offering groundbreaking advances in rolling resistance, saving fuel and reducing driving costs.
The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that each gallon of gas saved means that 19.4 lb fewer toxic CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere, which in turn helps reduce our nation's dependence on oil.
The hallmark of the ProContact with EcoPlus Technology is delivering greater fuel economy compared to a leading competitor's standard touring tire. In the past, reduced rolling resistance meant sacrificing wet traction and tread wear. Not so with the ProContact with EcoPlus Technology, because Continental's engineers were apparently able to deliver wet traction and lowered rolling resistance without compromising these characteristic.
EcoPlus Technology consists of two main components, Tg-F Polymers and Plus Silane. The Tg-F polymers are temperature-activated functional polymers that increase compound bonding, improving the wear and fuel efficiency of the tire.
The +Silane is an additive that works to enhance the tire's grip on slippery roads. thereby reducing stopping distances. These technologies work together to enhance the driving experience for a long tire life when conditions are normal, plus provide excellent wet braking.
The ProContact with EcoPlus Technology is backed by some of the strongest warranty programs and service contracts in the industry, including a 72-month Manufacturer's Workmanship Warranty with 12 Months Free Replacement; 12 months of Road Hazard Coverage and a 60-day Customer Satisfaction Warranty.
The ProContact with EcoPlus Technology comes with a segment-leading 80,000-mile limited tread wear warranty.
Available in a T-speed rating with a UTQG rating of 600 AB, this tire is available in a variety of 15" to 18" sizes to fit a wide range of vehicles for fuel-conscious consumers.
