Continental increase winter tyre range | ATS Euromaster 22nd November 2011

Continental Tyres are set to introduce five new varieties of winter tyre for the harsh winter months in the UK and Northern Ireland.

The move comes as Continental look to meet the increasing demand for winter compounds, which offer improved traction in icy road conditions.

Continental is introducing five new sizes to its Scandinavia 2 range, which have been designed for trucks, buses and coaches.

These new sized tyres will be available for low profile sizes with the driver axle position for 295/60 R 22.5 and 315/60 R 22.5.

The German manufacturer has also produced three winter tyres designed for heavier load vehicles with steer axle fitments and sized at 315/60 R 22.5 XL, 315/70 R 22.5 XL and 355/50 R 22.5 XL.

These new XL versions have been designed accommodate higher load capacities alongside good traction.

The new steering axle tyres will also feature intelligent tread design created for maximum road contact in snow or icy conditions.

Tracey Hyem, Continental commercial marketing manager, said: “The new sizes on the Scandinavia 2 generation will provide operators with additional traction and safety on the roads in snowy and icy conditions.”
