An increasing number of transport companies are using Continental’s latest generation of winter tyres for heavy commercial vehicles.
Thanks to its wide range of products for all axles on truck and trailer combinations and for buses, the premium manufacturer can provide a unique tyre concept for the cold season. In several European countries, the use of winter tyres on trucks is prescribed by law. In some cases, there is a minimum tread depth requirement of 6 millimeters. You could be fined up to €5,000 if you fail to comply with winter tyreregulations.
Continental’s Scandinavia winter tyre range therefore goes further than the legal requirements for fitment of M+S tyres on drive axles. All Scandinavia tyres, from the steering axle through the traction axle to the trailer tyres, have unlimited winter capabilities as indicated by the snowflake symbol on the sidewall.
Continental winter tyres allow safe goods transport on ice and snow without having to put up with poor ride comfort, greater wear or increased consumption. The tyre designs, which have been specially configured for their axle positions, and the tread pattern guarantee optimum traction and directional control.
