The tire that delivers all-round winter performance
The Kristall Montero 3 is the winter tyre that delivers all around winter performance at an affordable price. Get top-quality performance in all types of winter conditions. The Kristall Montero 3 comfortably handles cold, wet, snow, and ice – and all at an affordable price.
Excellent traction on snow
Optimized for all-around performance
Superb grip at low temperatures
Excellent traction on snow. Enjoy reliable winter traction with Fulda’s SnowCatcher Technology. The center grooves form an interlocking network that catches the snow as you drive, helping your tyre keep its grip on snow-covered roads.
Optimized for all-round performance. The Kristall Montero 3 features Bubble Blade Technology, which balances the need for a dense blade arrangement that can tackle ice and snow, with a stable tread design that handles well in every type of winter weather.
Superb grip at low temperatures. The tyre uses a special polymer that stays flexible at low temperatures, helping to maintain optimal performance in extremely cold conditions.
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

30.11.2019fromAlison Towers I have done a lot of driving on these tyres on snow and ice. I have had other tyres that were slightly better on soft snow, but they still did the job. They were outstanding though on icy roads and on compacted snow. You obviously still need to drive for the conditions, but these are great, especially bearing in mind their reasonable price. I will definitely look to buy these again
23.05.2014fromMike Excellent winter tyre, although I did not have any chance to drive in snow. Much quieter than my Continental summer tyres.
