The 4x4 Contact is Continental's Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tire designed to make touring tire looks and handling available for the drivers of premium crossover and sport utility vehicles. Used as Original Equipment on BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche vehicles, the 4x4 Contact combines the large rim diameter sizes appropriate for light trucks with Continental's original ContiTouringContact CH95 style tread design to deliver comfort, handling and all-season traction, even in light snow.

The 4x4 Contact features a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound that helps improve cold weather traction. This compound is molded into a symmetric tread design that provides for the ability to rotate tires to maximize tread life. The tread pattern is also computer-optimized to reduce noise and heavily siped to provide the additional biting edges necessary to enhance traction in light snow. The tire's internal structure features twin steel belts combined with a spirally wound jointless nylon reinforcement to blend high-speed durability with ride uniformity.

NOTE: While Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season light truck tires offer all-season versatility including traction in light snow, tire sizes featuring extremely wide tread widths may limit the traction this type of tire can provide in deep snow.

The Turbospeed CR228-D is the Ultra High Performance Summer tire member of AVON Tyres' family of Original Equipment tires. The Turbospeed CR228-D is designed to bestow performance and confidence to the drivers of Bentley performance sedans by providing plentiful traction, precise handling and positive steering response in dry and wet road conditions. The Turbospeed CR228-D is not intended to be driven in near freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

On the outside, the Turbospeed CR228-D features a specially formulated summer tread compound molded into a directional, seven-rib tread design to provide tread rigidity to enhance traction, steering response and cornering stability. The tread design's continuous center rib provides constant rubber-to-road contact to enhance straight line tracking while reducing noise levels. The location of the wide circumferential and angled lateral grooves blend dry road performance with wet weather traction and hydroplaning resistance.

On the inside, the Turbospeed CR228-D features twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon that helps resist distortion at high speeds and while cornering, along with a rayon cord casing that enhances ride comfort.

Tires Scores Compare

Would You Recommend?

N/A
N/A

Treadwear Performance

N/A
N/A

Treadwear is vital to many things, not just how often the tires need replacement. Hydroplaning and wet weather are both critical factors that wear down your tire quickly. The warranty covers any defects in what you bought but only for a limited period or when there's minimal tread left on them.

Wet Perfomance

6.3
N/A

The wet performance score is a new thing that tire manufacturers are trying to achieve. The hydroplaning resistance, wet traction, and steering response all influence this new grading system.

Hydroplaning Resistance
i

The hydroplaning resistance is measured by the hydroplane depth test and the dynamic aquaplaning test, which measures how much water can be accumulated on the tire's surface before hydroplaning occurs.

6.1
Wet Traction
i

Wet traction estimates the level of grip on wet pavement. Tread design with deep grooves dramatically improves confidence when driving in the rain as they channel the water out much better.

6.4
Steering Response
i

The vehicle's steering response largely depends on the tread depth, tire width, air pressure, and aspect ratio. Wide high-performance tires are equipped with a continuous center rib providing instant steering response.

6.7

Dry Perfomance

6.6
N/A

Tires with good dry performance should be able to perform smoothly and safely, even when cornering aggressively.

Cornering Stability
i

A dynamic cornering test is often used to assess cornering stability under dry conditions.

6.5
Dry Traction
i

Dry traction level depends on many factors, including tread design, profile shape, and compounds.

6.5
Steering Response
i

The vehicle's steering response largely depends on the tread depth, tire width, air pressure, and aspect ratio. Wide high-performance tires are equipped with a continuous center rib providing instant steering response.

6.7

Comfort Perfomance

6.6
N/A

The comfort performance score is designed to measure the balance between ride quality and noise level.

Ride Quality
i

The excellent ride quality means you do not feel the bumps or cracks on the road. Larger tires with thick and deep tread patterns decrease the number of jolts allowing you to glide over bumpy road textures.

6.6
Noise
i

If you would enjoy a quiet chat with the passengers while children are sleeping or listening to music, not the sound of tires, definitely pay attention to the noise score.

6.6

Winter Performance

4.6
N/A

Winter Performance score helps us understand if the tire is the appropriate option for winter conditions that your vehicle will face. Dedicated winter tires provide a firm grip when driving through snow and on ice. Performance winter tires boast a higher speed rating and better handling but deliver modestly lower ice and snow traction.

Light Snow Traction
i

Snow traction is the ability of a tire to push snow out of its path. When driving on packed snow, tires with good snow traction will help you accelerate and maintain control.

5.2
Deep Snow Traction
i

Deep Snow Traction test results compare how the tires deal with the deep snow. To successfully cope with the job, such tires should feature aggressive tread patterns, a tremendous amount of siping, and most elastic compounds.

4.4
Ice Traction
i

Ice traction tires feature ice grip and build friction when using the brakes or steering wheel to get through icy surfaces safely.

Size

Tire size may be indicated in two formats:
– metric (P255/45R18 103H)
– high flotation (30x9.5 R15 104 F C)
In the metric system, P - stands for the passenger vehicles (LT - for Light Trucks, ST - Special Trailer) with a width of 255 millimeters, aspect ratio (sidewall height) equal to 45% of the tire height. R means it is radially constructed with a diameter of 18 inches. 103 denotes the tire's load index and H determines the speed rating.
In the high flotation system, the first number (30) is the overall diameter of the tire, the second number (9.5) is the width in inches.

Max. load
i

The maximum weight that a tire can carry is the greatest amount of weight it's designed to bear. Because load carrying capability is dependent on a tire's size and construction, as well as how much air pressure is actually utilized, maximum loads are measured with the tire inflated to an industry standard inflation pressure.

102 (1870 lbs)
