The new PureContact LS from Continental Tire the Americas LLC is designed for luxury cars and luxury sports cars and is available in 29 sizes from 16 inches to 20 inches.

The PureContact LS has a 10% improvement in wet traction and 23% improvement in wear over the PureContact, according to Continental. The improvements were achieved through Continental’s proprietary EcoPlus Technology, which enhances wet grip, and improves tread wear and fuel efficiency over the life of the tire.

The PureContact LS features a 50% reduction in noise over the prior model. Traction grooves are specifically designed for snow performance. The tire includes “Tuned Performance Indicators” which show the driver when the tire is no longer performing optimally in dry, wet or snow conditions. The company's “Alignment Verification System” shows the driver when the vehicle needs to be aligned.
