Thanks to the profile specially adapted to winter peration, the tyre has excellent grip on snow. This shortens the braking distance.
Perfect handling on wet and dry roads.
Displacement of snow and mud slush by the Van-Jet Winter is excellent. This optimises dry road handling and reduces the risk of aquaplaning under wet conditions.
Long service life.
The sturdy, additionally reinforced profile extends mileage and as a result the tyre’s service life as well.
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
Additional pictograms for snow and icy conditions
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
