“Universal” tire for light cars
Previous model Continental ContiWinterContact TS780 used on my Fabia HR II.
Until, that dreadful day when those tires failed horribly in just 5 mm layer of wet snow on tarmac. It was simple uphill section with barely 10° angle…fresh snow on road, mixed with salt and quickly melting. I drove about 200 meters and my car stopped, driven wheels spinning and disco lights on dashboard.
Drivers behind me were happy for sure. U-turn with hand break and driving back…hopping I can keep momentum and reach highway. On normal snow it somehow works if you keep moving…if you stop, I guess you are done. This tire has got too fine thread pattern that clutters with snow very easily.
