Continental Tire, a highly regarded brand among high-performance vehicle enthusiasts and one of the best-selling tire brands in Europe, is introducing its first all-terrain tire to the North American light truck market with the TerrainContact A/T tire.

Three years in the making, the TerrainContact underwent a rigorous testing protocol of more than 100 hours of computer simulation, more than 12,000 hours of machine testing, 1,500 tires tested, and more than 2 million miles of on and off-road terrain testing. The tire features the brand’s new TractionPlus technology, combining an open tread pattern with large, stable blocks. The tire also features Continental’s +Silane technology, which provides outstanding wet traction and a quiet, comfortable ride through noise blockers and pattern shifting.

Traction grooves inside the tire grooves provide gripping teeth for improved snow grip with full-depth sipes for improved snow and ice traction. Continental claims long tread life in addition to excellent overall all-season on- and off-road performance. The TerrainContact A/T is offered in 20 sizes from 16 to 22-inch wheel diameters and widths from 235-315. The tire is available now at Continental Tire dealers and is covered by a 72-month manufacturer’s limited warranty, and a 60,000-mile limited mileage warranty and three-year flat tire roadside assistance.
