The ContiPremiumContact™ 2 has a totally new type of 3-D groove. Its innovative tread technology optimises braking performance on both wet and dry surfaces. Thanks to the new 3-D grooves, water is dispersed more efficiently - providing excellent protection against aquaplaning. 3-D grooves also give the whole tire superb stability. That's why the new ContiPremiumContact™2 is less prone to distortion, which vastly improves your car's manoeuvrability.
The innovative 3-D-Groove: The distinctive feature of the new ContiPremiumContact™ 2 is its unique 3D tread grooves, which optimise braking performance on both wet and dry roads and achieve optimum protection against aquaplaning. Shallow side for better braking on dry roads, steep side for better braking on wet roads: The shallow side of the 3D groove gives greater tread block stability and improved road contact, which results in shorter braking distances on dry roads. Even when placed under great strain the tread blocks do not bend away and so the tire retains maximum contact with the road. This more even contact pressure ensures maximum transmission of power to the dry road. The steep side of the 3D groove makes the edge of the tread block extremely angular. This enables it to cut through the water on the road, much like a windscreen wiper. The direct contact between the tire and road means exceptionally short braking distances, even in the wet.
Special shape of the 3D grooves for better resistance to aquaplaning: The special shape of the 3D grooves (shallow and steep sides) means that as the water flows through, a swirl effect is created. The water is thus dispersed more rapidly and the risk of aquaplaning reduced. The harmonious round shape of the ground contact patch also increases resistance to aquaplaning.
Improved handling thanks to asymmetrical tread pattern: The compact outer shoulder and the reduced number of tread blocks ensure optimum road contact and excellent cornering stability. The double block structure of the inner ribs ensures high circumferential tread stiffness, which results in improved driving stability and braking performance. The open inner shoulder with its continuous lateral grooves and an increased number of tread blocks reduces rolling noise and disperses water efficiently, giving a comfortable ride and excellent protection against aquaplaning.

Do you have your own way of releasing stress? Some people go up a mountain and shout while others listen to music or confide in their friends. You may want to go on a drive to ease your stress if you are a Nexen Tire fan. A drive for its own sake when you are down or just feeling gloomy will put you in a much better mood. To better help you with your drive for a change of mood or a release of stress, Nexen Tire has launched a new, exciting product: N’blue HD Plus, an upgraded version of N’blue HD with better performance and improved features that are the product of extensive investment in R&D.
Efficient water drainage: Computer simulated four circumferential grooves and slightly curved lateral grooves effectively evacuate water and resist hydroplaning.
Outstanding straight driving stability: Continuous 3 center ribs help directional driving stability at a high speed.
Jointless Bead Wire & High Hardness Bead Filler: Improve high speed stability and deliver better handling and steering response.
Maximized Wet Grip Compound: By applying the latest silica & advanced materials compounding technology, Maximized wet grip and higher fuel efficiency are secured at same time.
High performance cornering: Solid shoulder rib facilitates precise cornering and keeps in tune with every corner by distributing forces.
Excellent driving stability in wet roads: Lateral grooves achieved by effective drainage enhance driving stability in wet roads.
High Tensile Steel Belts: Enhance braking function with optimized grip pressure and stress dispersion by OBCS technology.
High Modulus Carcass: Minimizes tire deformation and helps maintain the tire's shape to enhance driving stability with OCCS technology.
Put differently, based on the EU Labeling standard for easier comparison, the tire has better wet grip, rolling resistance and noise performance. With improved stability on wet roads, the N’blue HD Plus received many ‘A’s in wet braking, the highest level under the EU Labeling standard.Its wet grip, one aspect of a tire highly regarded in Europe, has also been improved, as 18 out of its 44 categories previously rated B received A. In addition, 16 categories in rolling resistance and 15 categories in noise were rated higher, allowing the tire to provide a higher level of silence and better ride. Its fuel efficiency is higher now, with 5 percent more mileage compared to its predecessor. Nexen Tire is committed to delivering higher quality and performance to customers through continued improvement and sustained investment in R&D.
A completely new developed tyre with an outstanding comfort and a high safety potential. Because of the superior handling and behaviour in the curves at a low tyre noise, coupled with an extremely comfortable unreeling behaviour, the KH15 is best for high performance cars.
As of the autumn, the conditions of circulation are degraded, and the motorists must face various conditions of road: dryness, rain, snow or glaze. To face these varied conditions, YOKOHAMA proposes an extraordinary range of tires winter. With its 3 profiles, the range winter of continuous YOKOHAMA to develop and presents a new tire top-of-the-range winter: W.drive.
The design of the asymmetrical tread to high-rigidity gets high performances balanced on dryness, the rain or the roads snow-covered. The 3 right grooves (or 4 according to dimensions') support the drainage of water or snow, even molten, and push back the limits of aquaplaning. The paving stones have different rigidities according to their provision on the tread. More rigid on the outside of the profile, they support adherence in the turns on dryness, whereas on the interior, their flexibility take part in adherence on snow.
One of the major innovations of W.driveTM resides in the plates “3D “with a surface in polyhedron allowing of great performances on dryness, under the rain or on the snow-covered roads. The single design of the plates makes it possible the blocks of gum to be based the ones on the others, thus preserving the rigidity of the paving stones on a broader surface of contact. In parallel, this technology makes it possible to increase the density of the plates on the surface of the tread, thus multiplying the effect of blade on the snow-covered or icy roads.
The mixture of gum with its “flexible polymers “makes it possible to maintain the flexibility and flexibility thus adherence at low temperature. By integrating “micro silica “in the mixture, one improves rigidity at higher temperature. This very specific association is effective only if integration is homogeneous.
Thanks to extraordinary technology ZERUMATM, exclusive patent of YOKOHAMA, whose secrecy lies in the optimal dispersion of silica in the mixture of gum, the integration of the “micro silica “is optimal, which makes it possible to improve the behavior, motricity and braking some are the conditions of rolling and temperature.
With a broad range of 70 references of the 14 “to 19 “and series 65 to 40, W.drive makes it possible to equip the unit with the automobile park. The indices speed go T (190 km/h) with V (240 km/h) and from many dimensions profit from reinforced indices of load and/or edge of protection of rim. With W.driveTM, to face the winter season and its traps is not any more one concern. Some are the conditions of road, each driver can consider each way in a serene way.
