For transporter and vans. The bottom line = 12 months of safety. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Maximum economy in all seasons. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the models Renault Master, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Iveco Daily.
Maximum economy in all seasons
High safety in summer, thanks to excellent handling on dry roads
Outstanding safety through the winter, thanks to reliable traction and braking performance
Maximum economy in all seasons. Thanks to the wear-optimised all-weather rubber compound of the Vanco™ FourSeason 2,together with its reinforced design and scuff rib, this tyre offers maximum wear resistance and a long service life. As a result, it provides outstanding economy throughout the year.
High safety in summer, thanks to excellent handling on dry roads. The use of computer-optimised pitch geometry means the stiffened pattern blocks combine the advantages of both block and band designs, providing enhanced tread stability for perfect handling on dry roads.
Outstanding safety through the winter, thanks to reliable traction and braking performance. The tread pattern on the Vanco™ FourSeason 2 features a large number of sipes for maximum grip on roads in winter. Moreover, the wide longitudinal and lateral grooves mean optimum dispersion of water and slush. The tyre thus provides best possible safety in winter, giving reliable traction and braking performance.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
