By creating a windscreen wiper effect, the tire offers vastly improved water dispersion for safe wet braking.
The improved contact with the road and the increased stability and rigidity of the tread pattern result in an optimum driving performance.
A special compound reduces energy loss during the deformation of the tire. The effect: reduced rolling resistance for higher fuel efficiency.
The German magazine promobil has published in their issue 5/2019 the "Summer Tire Test 2019". The tested tire size was 235/60 R 17C, test vehicle was a VW Crafter and a MAN TGE.
The test was conducted by promobil in cooperation with Goodyear in Mireval (France).

About our ContiVanContact™ 200
+ Superior wet grip
+ Very safe in handling
+ Low Rolling Resistance
- Hearable tire noise in corners
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.
