The PremiumContact 6 will be available on Singaporean shores end Q2 2017 in a wide range of sizes. This new tyre from Continental successfully bridges the gap between a sedan tyre with high ride comfort and a tyre for sporty models.
The all-new Premium Contact 6 combines comfort, precise steering response, maximum safety and good environmental properties in a single product. To this end, the development engineers have come up with new compounds, an innovative tyre design that borrows from Continental’s high-tech SportContact 6 tyre, and a tread pattern that offers a more comfortable ride. The outcome is a product that delivers improvements of up to 15 percent in handling performance, rolling resistance, mileage and comfort compared to its predecessor.
With the merging of the Premium and Sport lines of tyres, Continental engineers combined opposing qualities, known as target conflicts. The new innovations include a synthetic amorphous silica compound for short braking distances on wet roads, an abrasion-resistant polymer compound with a supple tread pattern to improve mileage by 15 percent and reduce noise by 10 percent, and “advanced macro-block design” which employs long shoulder blocks that support one another, to provide additional grip and steering precision for sporty handling.
The new Premium Contact 6 comes in 70 sizes for rims from 16 to 21 inches to fit just about any passenger cars and SUVs. The new tyre will gradually replace its successful predecessors, the ContiPremium Contact 5 and ContiSportContact 5, both of which were very popular in the original equipment and replacement markets. The Premium Contact 6 along with Continental’s sporty line, the SportContact 6 are available across all Stamford Tyres retail outlets.
All passenger light truck (PLT) tyres come with Continental’s global standard warranty of two years from the date of installation by end customers. Continental Tyre Malaysia is the first tyre brand in Singapore that guarantees its products by offering additional three years extended warranty through its official distributor Stamford Tyres International Pte Ltd., making a total warranty of five years from date of installation.
