Questions and Answers for the Continental WinterContact TS 830 P

2017-04-19 - I require crossover tyres for my Renault kadjar - will these operate well in snow and ice?

The Continental WinterContact TS830P is a very well regarded European winter tyre. Depending on your location, you might want to consider a Nordic winter tyre or a studded winter tyre if ice is a big problem (where local laws allow)

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320 d (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
I bought a set of these tyres because 1.BMW are known to be horrific in the snow 2.I live up a very very steep hill in Wales, these tyres are extremely good in fresh snow and icy conditions, the road was so bad that you could watch 4x4 cars with summer tyres sliding down the very steep hill and spinning their wheels on the way up. With these tyres the was no loss of traction while driving downhill and no ABS engagement. Driving up hill the was minimal wheel spin, the car always felt in control and would never loose composure. Only downside to winter tyres i have found is in the dry and at 8c onwards they start to feel a little vague at speed however this is minimal for the benefits gained at colder temperatures.

Considering excellent test results and user feedback I bought a set of Conti tyres. But these tyres are very much dissapointing with terrible traction under winter conditions. Worst winter tyres I ever had. I should never by again Continental.

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320 d (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
I was shocked by just how good these tires were in the snow and ice on my BMW RWD. Absolutely no slip or wheel spin while others around me struggled. I will never not have winter tires again even if it’s front wheel drive or four.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Passat 1.9 TDI Sport Estate (B5.5) (195/65 R15 H) on mostly town for 20,000 spirited miles
Great tyres, the "fat" passat goes easily through the snow and ice. A few times these tyres have saved me from crash (panic braking on -10 degrees, slippery surface) so I believe it was a good investment.
