For extra safety in winter, Continental additionally offers the WinterContact TS 850 P.

Continental’s tires supplied ex work for the Polestar 2 come with ContiSilent technology for an especially quiet driving experience. In these tires a layer of polyurethane foam is applied to the inner surface to dampen the vibrations from driving. This considerably reduces the constituents of the rolling noise in the vehicle interior, which are perceived as especially irritating. ContiSilent is compatible with all commercially available rims and has no negative effects on a vehicle’s performance, fuel consumption, maximum load or maximum speed.

For extra safety in winter, Continental also offers the WinterContact TS 850 P. It is equipped with a high number of blocks and sipes in longitudinal direction of its tread. This results in enhanced traction and shorter braking distances on snow.
