ContiWinterContactTM TS 830 P - winter safety for high-performance vehicles.
Exceptional braking power on wet and icy roads
High block stiffness in the tread pattern centre and the large number of sipes with maximum formation of gripping edges provide improved braking power on wet and icy roads.
Better traction in snow
The large number of blocks and sipes on the tire shoulders create a multitude of gripping edges and consequently more effective traction in snow.
Due to an even distribution of block stiffness and the corresponding even pressure distribution in the ground contact patch, the ContiWinterContact™ TS 830 P has a lower and more even wear resulting in higher mileage performance.
The SSR principle:
Unlike conventional tires, the SSR principle is based on a reinforced self-supporting sidewall. This prevents the inside of the tire from getting pinched between the road and the rim and from slipping into the rim well in the event of a loss of inflation. The SSR's reinforced sidewall enables the car to continue on its way at a maximum speed of80 km/h (50 mph)for up to 80 km (50 miles), depending on road conditions and vehicle weight.
SSR runflat tires offer crucial advantages
With SSR tires you remain mobile in the event of a flat tire. You can reach your destination or tire service facility without the bother of having to replace a flat tire with the spare tire
Compatible with standard rims
Saves room and weight, and thus fuel, giving you as much as 3 cubic feet more cargo area
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

Internal noise level
13.12.2020 from Colin Tyres have lasted 30000km on rear and 25000km on front wheels of 4x4. Have used them year-round because UK temperatures allow this. 3% increase in fuel consumption compared with lower profile summer wheels and tyres. Higher noise than summer tyres. Excellent durability. No issues with edge wear being the limiting factor on tyre life. Lasted 30% longer then Pirellis.
