Continental is extending its ContiSeal technology to van tyre ranges. Production of ContiVanContact 100 tyres featuring the self-sealing puncture solution began this month and will initially be available for the popular dimensions 215/65 R 16C 106/104 T. Going forwards, Continental will introduce the solution in further sizes and also offer ContiSeal products in its all-season and winter van tyre ranges.
A new Continental light commercial vehicle tyre range is being rolled out. It’s called the VanContact Eco, and Continental says the tyre offers “offers impressively high mileage, delivers precise handling and short braking distances on wet and dry roads” as well as lower rolling resistance than its predecessor, the ContiVanContact 200. This claim is backed up by the range’s EU tyre label rating – key VanContact Eco sizes come with an A/A rating for wet braking and fuel efficiency.
Testing carried out by independent inspection company DEKRA at the request of Goodyear Dunlop suggests that the Goodyear EfficientGrip Cargo light commercial vehicle tyre can achieve an average additional mileage of 13,344 miles (21,475 kilometres).
