Thanks to the open outer shoulder, this tire provides good handling and braking properties even on easy terrain. The four deep and broad circumferential grooves widen towards the opening, ensuring very good aquaplaning resistance and reducing tire damage by hindering stones from getting caught. Thanks to their rib characteristic and pronounced siping, the three circumferential block rows make for precise steering response and very good straightline performance while guaranteeing that the tire rolls very smoothly and quietly.
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Excellent handling and braking performance for on-road and off-road use. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the models Dacia Sandero, GMC and Nissan Pathfinder.

FT-9, called “Mud Terrain Terminator”, and aimed at off-road enthusiasts.
Thanks to its extra large shoulder lugs for enhanced shoulder traction, Nankang FT-9 is competitive over rocky, muddy, uneven and harsh surfaces, on which its interlocking shoulder block design enhanced grip besides exclude screes and clods for better maneuverability.
The technical tread patterns on Nankang FT-9, hook-shaped block, z-shaped zigzag grooves and the prominent bar on the bottom of the grooves, are even designed to give extra traction in superior off-road conditions.
'Nankang FT-9 will certainly get the attention of anyone who takes off-road traction seriously.' company representatives said. Nankang FT-9 even won “Taiwan Excellence award 2012”.
Interlocking shoulder block design can grip and exclude screes and clods to increase maneuverability, and allow the car to be navigated freely on rugged roads. Hook-shaped blocks can gripping thrust on screes and clods. The blocks extended to tread shoulders provide extra traction between blocks and screes.
The prominent bar on the bottom of the grooves prevents stones are ledged in the grooves. Lodged stones will be expelled by the flexible moves between the prominent bar and the groove wall. Z-shaped zigzag grooves mill the clods and adopt to all kinds of rugged roads.

In the new ContiCrossContact™ LX 2, Continental has added an SUV tire to its portfolio with safe, comfortable on-road performance and a robust design for light-duty off-road driving. Designed for vehicles like the Evoque, Qashqai and Touareg, it is available now, in time for the start of the summer tire season. The ContiCrossContact LX 2 gives up to 6 percent better braking performance, 3 percent better handling, and 10 percent better cut and chip resistance off-road than its popular predecessor. Continental’s development engineers have also improved rolling resistance by 8 percent and mileage by more than 25 percent in the new tire.
For SUVs- and off-road vehicles. Excelent handling in the road and light off-road use. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Excellent dry and wet braking performance and very good handling properties. Fits perfectly for example to Toyota Land Cruiser, Jeep Cherokee and VW Amarok.
Excellent dry and wet braking performance and very good handling properties.
The tyre’s high pattern stiffness is highly impressive. This is ensured by the solid central pattern area, the closed shoulder pattern and additional raised areas within the tread pattern blocks. The tyre therefore offers excellent handling and very good braking properties on dry road surfaces. Short braking distances on wet road surfaces are ensured by the highly siped pattern, which increases grip by means of improved water displacement between the blocks and the road surface.
High mileage and high level of driving comfort.
The continuously closed shoulder pattern creates a barrier against the tyre noise produced in the centre of the tread pattern. A high level of driving comfort is therefore guaranteed thanks to reduced noise emissions. The flat tyre contour facilitates an even distribution of pressure between the tyre and road surface. This leads to high mileage.
Outstanding traction in light off-road use.
The highly siped pattern creates numerous grip angles. These guarantee outstanding traction in light off-road use.
