Conti ExtremeContact DW is OE on Tesla Model S

Continental Tire the Americas LLC announces that the 21-inch wheel option of Tesla’s Model S premium electric sedan comes outfitted with Continental tires.

The upgraded wheel option comes with the 245/35 R 21 Continental ExtremeContact DW tire to handle the instant torque and low center of gravity of the award-winning Model S.

This UHP summer tire is an excellent combination with the 100% electric car that was designed and built with premium performance in mind, notes Continental.

The Continental ExtremeContact DW provides a driver with excellent traction and responsive handling in both dry and wet conditions. In addition to the 21-inch fitment, the ExtremeContact DW comes in sizes ranging from 16-inch to 21-inch.

The DW Tuned Performance Indicators, built into the second rib of the tread, are designed to alert drivers of the tire’s optimal performance level in both dry and wet conditions ultimately providing improved ride comfort. The performance of this tire matches up nicely with the demands of the rear-wheel drive performance sedan that travels 0-60 mph in as little as 4.4 seconds.

According to Tesla, the Model S is 100% electric, produces zero emissions, and has an EPA five-cycle test range of 265 miles between charges (with the 85 kWh battery) making this combination environmentally friendly as well as fun to drive.

The Tesla Model S with Continental’s ExtremeContact DW is available nationwide and in Canada. For more information on Tesla’s Model S, visit www.teslamotors.com.
