With the new WinterContact TS 860 S Continental is showcasing a winter tire for sports cars and high-powered cars designed for dynamic driving The WinterContact TS 860 S is to be available in the replacement market and as original equipment, with Continental intending to offer automakers their own customized versions with different handling properties at the highest level. The new tire delivers top performance in terms of braking distances and handling on dry roads as well as handling properties on snow. For the coming winter, the new WinterContact TS 860 S will be manufactured in 14 sizes. The line-up will include diameters from 18 to 21 inches, with approvals for speeds of up to 270 km/h.
With the new WinterContact TS 860 S, Continental is responding to the many different needs of the manufacturers and drivers of high-performance cars. So when the tire was being developed, the focus was above all on short braking distances and precision handling in the dry, as well as on top-class handling properties on snow. This winter specialist achieves its short braking distances by means of its “braking groove” – a wide groove running through the center of the tread, offering a large surface with which to build up grip. Stiff, broad shoulder blocks deliver maximum grip for a precision steering response, while the many tread grooves and traction sipes in the tread blocks make for good interlocking with snow, enabling sporty driving even on typical wintry roads. For the replacement sector, Continental has prepared a compound that delivers high flexibility even in winter. On the original equipment front, Continental is intending to meet the specific and different needs of automakers such as Audi Sport GmbH, BMW M Gmbh, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche with customized rubber compounds in each case.
