The next generation Pure Contact and True Contact all-season touring tires from Continental Tire the Americas LLC are now available to dealers in the U.S.

Continental Tire introduced the PureContact LS and the TrueContact Tour on June 1.

Both tires are an updated version of their predecessors, the PureContact and TrueContact. Continental says new compounding specific to each tire boosts overall performance versus the prior models, especially in tread life, road noise, and wet braking capabilities.

PureContact LS

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.

Other features include:

  • A 50% reduction in noise over the PureContact;
  • traction grooves specifically designed for snow performance;
  • Continental’s “Tuned Performance Indicators” that enable the driver to see when the tire is no longer performing optimally in dry, wet or snow conditions; and
  • The company’s “Alignment Verification System” that shows the driver when it’s time for an alignment.

“We took two of our leading touring tires and made them even better,” says Travis Roffler, director of marketing for Continental Tire.

“We made generational improvements to the already top performing tires and we are pleased with the advances made. Our engineers created two new compounds specifically formulated for the PureContact LS and TrueContact Tour which resulted in even longer tread life, improved road noise, and excellent wet braking capabilities. We believe consumers will be even happier with these two all-season touring tires.”
