Innovating year-round safety and efficiency.
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 Auto Bild has published in their issue Oct./2019 the Super All Season Tire Test 2019. The tested tire size was 225/45 R17 94 V/W/Y, test vehicle was a BMW 1-series.
This test is a special test with 31 participating products. The evaluation consists of 2 parts:
Part 1: Wet braking and dry braking test: selection of the best 10 products (finalists)
Part 2: Complete test only of the finalists including wear performance and price
The test was conducted by Auto Bild on following proving grounds:
• IFV Institute for road wear test (Harz, Germany)
• Contidrom, Jeversen, Germany (dry and wet tests)
• SEHG New Zealand (winter tests)
Rating for the AllSeasonContact™: Good

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.
