For transporters and vans. Robust, safe and extremely durable
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Perceptible car-orientated handling. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the vehicle models Renault Trafic, VW Amarok and Fiat Ducato.
The growing demand for short-distance transport of passengers and goods also leads to increased requirements so that the performance of modern day vans nears that of passenger cars.
Every fourth car – and almost every third van – in Europe are originally fitted with Continental tires. The results of various tests in the press and media plus the satisfaction and confidence of professional fleet customers testify the quality of the Vanco™.
The Vanco™ 2 is a class of its own. The familiar premium quality of its predecessor has been improved significantly. The Vanco™ 2 sets new benchmarks in the efficiency and performance criteria.
Up tp to 20% extra mileage
Perceptible car-orientated handling
Excellent wet braking performance
Outstanding protection against aquaplaning
Especially robust construction
Perceptible vehicle-orientated handling. A solid tyre shoulder ensures low deformation for optimal transmission of lateral forces, thus providing vehicle-orientaded handling.
Excellent wet braking performance. The redesigned lattice structure of the sipes dispenses the water, similar to a windscreen wiper for optimal grip on the road surface under wet conditions.
Outstanding resistance to aquaplaning. The dynamically shaped lateral grooves act as water canals to quickly disperse water from the contact patch for outstanding aquaplaning protection.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

02.08.2015frommartin miller Have only managed to get 8,000 mls from this last pair of rear tyres on van which is rarely fully loaded. Have now changed to a different brand.
03.05.2015fromJoe L. Use these c load rated tires on a 1 ton trailer. Absolutely no problems with a full load at 65 mph for 500 day trips. Great tires!
16.06.2012fromChris Bradley Just ordered a new pair for the front, they've lasted 126,000 miles. Rears lasted 87,000 miles
