Economy and safety for day-to-day use: The new VancoEco™ for light commercial vehicles and vans.
Continental has added a new tire with savings potential to its range that has been specially developed for vans like the Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit and Volkswagen T5. The new VancoEco has around 30 percent less rolling resistance, which can save a calculated four percent in fuel and emissions. At the same time, the engineers have managed to keep the braking distance on dry and wet roads short and to make the tire perform like a car tire.
The great savings potential has been made possible by two design measures that together help reduce rolling resistance considerably. The new transporter tire has been given a silica tread compound like the ones already used for car tires. In addition, the tread design for the transporter tire has been changed so that deformation, which all tires are subjected to when the tread elements run into the ground contact area, could be reduced considerably. The two measures combined with a very shallow tire contour allow up to 30 percent less rolling resistance.
Cost-effective due to optimised rolling resistance. With its new silica tread compound, developed to reduce rolling resistance, and particularly firm tread, the Vanco™ Eco is an impressive performer. Its flat contour and reduced tread depth ensure less deformation of the tyre during rotation even under a heavy payload. The result: lower fuel consumption due to reduced rolling resistance.
Short braking distances, even on wet surfaces. Due to the increased loading capabilities of light commercial vehicles, high demands are placed on the braking performance of van tyres, especially in wet conditions. The gripping edges of the pattern blocks create a windscreen wiper effect and ensure an optimal interlocking with the road surface for short braking distances.
Car-like handling. High tread rigidity and a firm tread pattern with a solid tyre shoulder enable the optimal transfer of lateral forces and gives the vehicle more perceptible car-like handling.
The CW-20 is a tyre designed especially for transporters and vans and features excellent efficiency and performance properties. It has a robust built and gives an impressive car-like driving comfort.
Optimal lateral grooves reduce the noise generated from air consonance and increases riding comfort.
Four-straight grooves ensure driving safety on wet ground.
Shoulder rigidity enhancement prevents from irregularly wearing and is suitable for long distance driving.
Sipes on the bottom of shoulder grooves keep tread soft and riding comfort in terminal wearing stage.
Better Braking - 3D Block Design. 3D block design in the center delivers improved block stiffness for greater handling stability in high-speed driving and better snow braking.
Special Compound for Low Heat & Higher Abrasion Resistance. Molecular weight control and the application of a low hysteresis polymer and highly dispersed carbon block prevent the compound from heating up. Long service life with compounds that provide excellent wear resistance. Optimized rubber mixing to improve wear resistance.
Optimized Design for Enhanced Sidewall Stiffness. Sidewall protection solid is applied on four spots to extend service life with excellent durability against external impacts such as curbs.
For regional and long-distance transport. Matador brand with long tradition, wide portfolio and reliable performance. High mileage. Fits perfectly for example to Fiat Ducato, Iveco Daily and Ford Transit.
High mileage. The sturdy tread design and the flat tyre contour improve load carrying capacity and enlarge the abrasion volume. This leads to greater mileage and longer service life.
Increased driving stability even under heavy loads. Sturdy tread blocks and strong shoulder blocks increase driving stability. Handling remains safe even when transporting heavy loads.
Safe braking on wet roads. Three wide grooves running around the tyre, with special block edges and sipes, ensure the efficient displacement of water from the ground contact area, ensuring safe braking on roads. At the same time it offers good resistance to aquaplaning.

The robust construction optimizes braking effect on snow and ice
Excellent protection against aquaplaning and safe wet handling
The first thing you notice about the Vanhawk is its strong, solid, modern looking appearance.
This is due to its wider tread, which improves wear life and road grip, and the advanced pattern design that gives outstanding wet performance. But the real difference in the Vanhawk is found underneath the attractive exterior, where the construction, components and materials have all been designed for durability.
The mix makes the difference: the smooth riding fuel saver
Vanis 2 tires offer outstanding economy and safety reserves and superbly balanced properties on the road.
Safety: aquaplaning protection
Safety: dry braking
Cost-effectiveness: flat contour
Cost-effectiveness: scuff rib
Comfort: noise reduction
High level of safety thanks to short braking distances on dry surfaces.
Tie bars in the pattern centre and stable block type tread ensure optimised stiffness distribution in the pattern and increase the longitudinal stability in the blocks. This shortens braking distances on dry roads and increases safety.
Excellent price-performance ratio thanks to improved mileage.
The flat contour gives the Vanis 2 a large ground contact area which leads to a higher wear volume. In addition the low-wear compound increases the mileage and therefore the economy.
Increased driving comfort thanks to reduced noise level.
Noise breakers in the shoulder section reduce road noise and improve driving comfort.
Excellent grip and driving safety in winter. Strong in winter.
The new generation of winter light truck tyres in a wide range of dimensions to fit 14″ to 16″ wheel disks. Introducing a new generation of light truck tyres developed specially for winter use on small and medium-sized vans and light trucks. The MPS530 Sibir Snow M+S tyre is designed for winter traffic on motorways and regional roads. The pictogram on the sidewall is a guarantee of high reliability and outstanding grip in winter conditions – awarded for passing the ASTM F-1805 winter grip test.
The standout features of MPS530 Sibir Snow VAN M+S are an excellent grip on snow and high driving safety in winter conditions. There is a large offer of 19 dimension variants in the following speed categories: “N” – to 140 km/h, “Q” – to 160 km/h, “R” – to 170 km/h and “T” – to 190 km/h with width profiles from 165 mm to 235 mm for mounting on 14″ to 16″ wheel disks.
Good traction on snow. Sinus-waved sipes and many strong and efficient interlocking grip edges improve braking and traction on snow.
Safe cornering. Compact shoulder blocks provide excellent cornering stability.
Excellent protection against aquaplaning. Wide water displacement grooves guide the rainwater quickly away from the contact area. In this way the tyre remains firmly on track even when aquaplaning, and also performs very well on slush.
ML609 represents the right choice of tyre enabling driving at the highest level of safety at full capacity, especially in a more urban environment. Optimized compound and special tread design of the tyre shoulder have been engineered to ensure stability, providing safety on wet and light snow covered roads. Transversal grooves with fine siping are combined to achieve the best possible traction.
Maximized block rigidity by applying the rib type for shoulder block, given the heavy load of commercial LT vehicles. Prevented stress between blocks by applying square-shaped dimple where a sipe is turned, resulting in better durability. Maintains optimal rigidity balance in the in-out section by applying half depth to the transverse groove in the center block. Improved hydro performance through drainage faster than the of existing zigzag type by applying the straight main groove.
