The sporty winter tire for powerful medium and luxury-class cars
As a sports tire for winter use, the ContiWinterContact™ TS 810 Sport combines superb handling with good wet grip and safe driving characteristics on wintry roads. Stiff shoulder blocks deliver outstanding cornering stability. Its band-shaped tread structure in the center zone, similar to that of summer tires, ensures shortest braking distances on dry roads. Thicker sipes with their sipe spacers on the inside of the tyre keep the sipes open when they pass through the ground contact area. This makes the sipe fill up with more snow and boosts the amount of extra grip on wintry roads.
Developed for powerful medium range and luxury verhicels. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Outstanding performance in all winter conditions. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the models eg. Audi A5/A6, BMW Series 1/3/7 and Porsche Boxster/Carrera/Panamera.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

24.03.2021fromRichard Burton The tyres lasted about 3 weeks before one had a blow out the side wall of the tyre went on a motorway nearly caused an accident we were towed to a fast fit centre so they fitted 2 new tyres to replace the ones from mytyres
I tried contacting the supplier had no answer from my email and the phone put on to a very unhelpful gentleman who took no notice of any thing I said. So I would say DON’T buy tyres on line go to a fast fit that way if something goes wrong you can claim.
