Customers agree that Continental Winter Tyres provide first-class safety and traction

Winter tyres from Continental offer impressive reliability

18/10/2016

·    Tailor-made winter tyres provide optimal braking and saftey even on icy roads

·    Continental winter tyres easily surpass requirements for M+S and Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbols

In cold weather, Continental recommends fitting winter tyres on all axles of trucks and buses. This is because in wintry conditions, standard tyres reach their limits very quickly, even if they bear the M+S symbol. In many European countries, the minimum legal requirement for tyres suitable for winter use is usually limited to the drive axle and stipulates that tyres must feature the M+S symbol.

Continental's portfolio of winter tyres for commercial vehicles offers tailor-made tyres that stand out from the competition thanks to optimal traction and high levels of driving safety, when driving on cold and wet, snowy or icy roads. Continental winter tyres featuring the snowflake symbol on the tyre wall easily outperform M+S tyres, and also significantly exceeds the requirements of the "Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake" symbol (3PMSF). The concept of tyres working in harmony with each other is based on many years of experience and practical knowledge gained in Scandinavian countries, where genuine winter tyres are always fitted to commercial vehicles before the onset of winter.

Here is what customers are saying about the Continental winter tyre range:

Maximum traction, even on hills

Jonny, Tyre Technician at international transport company BÖRJE JÖNSSON ÅKERI AB, based in Helsingborg, Sweden: "Our company does long distance transportation throughout Sweden and Norway. For the safety of all road users, not to mention our drivers, we need the best tyres available on the market. With Continental winter tyres, our drivers feel a noticeable difference. On snow or ice, our trucks keep moving and never get stuck, even on hill starts. With Continental winter tyres, we can cover up to 180,000 km over two winters and our drivers feel safe at all times."

Safe journeys on icy roads

 

Mats, driver at BÖRJE JÖNSSON ÅKERI AB: "I transport specialty gas to destinations all over Sweden and Norway. Wherever my travels take me, I can rely on my Continental winter tyres. I remember a situation last winter when the road was suddenly covered in a sheet of ice topped by a layer of loose snow. While all the other drivers ground to a halt and had to fit snow chains, I simply pressed the accelerator and drove on. That says it all."

KM Göransson

Excellent braking and reliable on every trip

 

Christian Göransson, owner of Swedish transport company KM Göransson, based in Alvesta: "My company is a family-owned business that has been transporting wood chips throughout Sweden since 1940. Having previously tested other winter tyres, we have used Continental winter tyres continually since fitting them to our vehicles for the first time eight years ago. Every day of every winter, there is at least one situation in which it all comes down to having the right tyres, when you simply need maximum grip and the best possible stopping power. When this happens, our drivers can keep calm because they know that they are driving vehicles with Continental winter tyres – and they never disappoint."
