DYNAMIC ULTRA-HIGH PERFORMANCE SUMMER TIRE TUNED FOR DRIVERS SEEKING EXTREME GRIP IN DRY AND WET CONDITIONS WITHOUT SACRIFICING TREAD LIFE AND COMFORT.
The ExtremeContact™ DW is the ultra-high performance tire in a new line of performance tires from Continental. Featuring new technology to deliver extreme levels of performance on both wet and dry roads, while still maintaining excellent ride comfort and improved gas mileage.
Category: Ultra-High Performance
Available Sizes: 16” – 21” wheel diameters with aspect ratios of 25 – 55
Features & Benefits: The ExtremeContact DW delivers improved performance thanks to Continental’s new technologies:
- Chamfered Edges and a Solid Outer Shoulder deliver enhanced dry performance
- Dynamic Temperature Distribution reduces distortion for enhanced energy delivery, lower rolling resistance and improved tread-life
- High Void to Tread Ratio with Enhanced Groove Curvature improves water evacuation for outstanding wet handling
One of the new features on the ExtremeContact DW is the DW Tuned Performance Indicators. These are visible letters built into the second rib of the tread and are designed to alert drivers of the tire’s optimal performance levels. “D” indicates the tire is at optimum tread depth for dry conditions. “W” indicates the tire is at optimum tread depth for wet conditions. When the indicators disappear, the tire is no longer tuned for optimum performance in that particular road condition.
Speed Rating: W and Y
