The Continental TouringContact AS tires all-season design and 80,000 mile tread life make it a good option for budget minded drivers looking for new tires on their coupe, sedan or SUV.
The Touring Contact AS sports a synthetic tread compound for enhanced riding comfort and better overall durability, which is one reason for the 80,000 mile tread life. Independent tread blocks and wider circumferential grooves provide increased traction on dry road surfaces, while also reducing the risk of hydroplaning on wet streets.
Along with a better ride, the Continental Touring Contact also features a computer optimized pitch sequence which eliminates more of the outside road noise that are often found in other tires. Inside the tread you’ll find twin steel belts with a nylon cap for better strength and stability at highway speeds. An S or T speed rating is also available depending on size.
Overall, for those who are looking to replace their tires with ones that will not break the bank, this set of Continental tires may be a good choice.
Prices on the Continental Touring Contact AS range from approximately $75 for the 15 inch series to around $120 for the larger 17 inch series tires.
