For an exceptional choice in the Highway and Street Light Truck/SUV Tire, the ContiCrossContact LX from Continental is a great option. This tire features great handling and braking created by an Open Shoulder design. Four deep and broad circumferential grooves that widen toward the opening prevent hydroplaning to occur and to reduce tire damage on unpleasant surfaces. To improve steering, three circumferential block rows were added, giving the tire good straight-line performance while still giving the tire a smooth and quiet ride.

The ContiSportContact 3 is the new Ultra-High Performance tire manufactured by Continental. This tire features Asymmetric tread ribs that are designed to absorb obstacles in the road.
