Toronto, Ontario – Continental Tire Canada has introduced its new ProContact with EcoPlus Technology, a premium all-season tire that delivers improved fuel economy and tread wear without sacrificing performance, especially wet braking.
In the past, reducing rolling resistance meant sacrificing wet traction and tread wear. The ProContact with EcoPlus Technology is able to deliver excellent wet traction, more controlled braking, and significantly shorter stopping distances.
The EcoPlus Technology consists of Tg-F polymers, temperature-activated functional polymers that increase compound bounding for improved wear and fuel efficiency, and Plus Silane, an additive that enhances grip on slippery roads.
The new tire comes in a T-speed rating, in a variety of sizes from 15 to 18 inches. It includes a 128,000 kilometre limited tread wear warranty, and a 72-month manufacturer’s workmanship warranty with 12 months free replacement, 12 months of road hazard coverage, and a 60-day customer satisfaction warranty.
