With its Winter Performance Resins and a high silica fill rate in the Traction Silica Compound, the new AllSeasonContact™ always stays flexible. This adaptability ensures excellent performance on snow-covered and wet winter roads.
As a trustful companion, the new AllSeasonContact™ convinces in any summer condition. Responsible for this is the combination of open shoulders for high aquaplaning performance and stiff pattern with minimum sipes for better handling and braking on dry roads.
The impressive decrease of the rolling resistance based on optimised sidewall geometry and optimal pattern depth leads to a significant reduction of fuel consumption – without compromising on safety aspects.
The German magazine AutoBild has published in their current issue (39/2017) the All Season Tire Test 2017. The tested tire size was 205/55 R16 91/94 H/V, test vehicle
was a VW Golf 7.
The test was conducted by AutoBild at following proving grounds:
- Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground, New Zealand (winter tests)
- Contidrom Jeversen Germany (dry and wet tests)
- DEKRA (mileage)
Overall rating for the AllSeasonContactTM: "vorBILDlich"

Secure grip in wet conditions is crucial for safe driving. Performance is graded into classes, A to G (although D and G are not currently used). The stopping distance between a class A tire and a class F tire can be as much as 18 metres.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with each subsequent class through to G increasing fuel consumption by between 0.42 and 0.56 mpg for a car which does 36 mpg.
This is the external noise made by the tire and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tires.
