Exceptional braking power on wet and icy roads
High block stiffness in the tread pattern centre and the large number of sipes with maximum formation of gripping edges provide improved braking power on wet and icy roads.
Better traction in snow
The large number of blocks and sipes on the tire shoulders create a multitude of gripping edges and consequently more effective traction in snow.
Due to an even distribution of block stiffness and the corresponding even pressure distribution in the ground contact patch, the ContiWinterContact™ TS 830 P has a lower and more even wear resulting in higher mileage performance.
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Exceptional braking power on ice and snow. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the models eg. Audi A1/A3/A6/A8, BMW Series 1/3/5/6 and Porsche 911/Macan/Panamera.
Next generation technologies deliver outstanding performances both on dry and wet roads.
Shorter braking distance on wet & dry roads
Thanks to increased tire contact with the road.
Better grip for braking and handling
Adhesive resin increases stickiness with the surface.
Steering precision and durability
Thanks to a stronger lightweight construction.
The New Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 has been tested by independent organization TÜV and verified strong performance compared to other premium brand tires in the market.

Tested by TÜV SÜD Product Service GmbH in Sept – Oct 2015 by order of Goodyear Dunlop. New UHP, Tire Size: 225/45 R17 91Y; Test Car: VW Golf; Test Locations: Mireval (F), Papenburg (D), TÜV SÜD PS Garching (D); Report No. 713066268.
** Scores for rolling resistance: Continental Sport Contact 5 – 101.6; Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 – 100; average of leading competitors – 89.1. Part of test specified above with report No. 713066268.
«Dynamic Response» Technology: a hybrid belt of Aramid and Nylon ensures optimum transmission of steering instructions onto the road. An ultra-reactive Tread Pattern Design, coming from motorsport experience (Formula E, WRC), adapts continuously to the road, for optimized footprint on the road.
A new mix of compound with specific “functional elastomers” and hydrophobic Silica provides excellent wet grip and braking. Wide and deep longitudinal grooves ensure a high level of drainage on wet roads.
The MICHELIN PILOT SPORT tireline is co-designed with the most demanding car manufacturers (BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Porsche). The tread pattern design comes from motorsport experience.
Lasts 7 340 km longer than Continental Sport Contact 5 tyre (1)
(1) Tests carried out by DEKRA Test Center in April 2015 on Golf 6, with 225/45-17 94Y/W XL tires and in July 2015 with 225/40-18 92Y XL tires. The CONTINENTAL Sportcontact 5 tyre covered 7.340km less than the MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 tyre.
This V-rated tire provides safe winter driving year after year with controlled power.
Equipped with an exclusive tread design and Stabiligrip, a 3D sipe technology, the new Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA4™ tire delivers a 10% improvement in snow acceleration and more than a 5% enhancement in handling on snow covered and icy roads.
The new formula of full silica-based rubber compound, Helio Compound+, allows the Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA4™ tire to remain flexible in low temperatures for better winter performance, stopping over 5% shorter on snow, ice and wet roads.
The new Michelin® Pilot® Alpin® PA4™ tire is approved by the high standards of Porsche SE and is currently being tested by many other high-performance vehicle manufacturers.
