FORT MILL, S.C.—Continental Tire the Americas has added a pair of all-season light truck tires to its product portfolio, the TerrainContact H/T and the CrossContact LX25, extending the company's coverage of the highway/terrain segment to 84 percent.
The TerrainContact H/T is a new product for pickup trucks and full-size SUVs that complements the TerrainContact A/T launched in 2016, while the CrossContact LX25 is the successor to the CrossContact LX 20, according to Travis Roffler, director of marketing.
Conti is pitching the TerrainContact H/T as the "ideal tire" for those who value a quiet/comfortable ride with highly rated wet traction. The tire features Conti's patented TractionPlus technology for extended tread life and robust durability, while providing what Continental calls "best-in-class" wet braking.
The tire launches in 24 metric and 10 LT-metric sizes, covering rim diameters from 16 to 22 inches.
The CrossContact LX25 replaces the tire maker's CrossContact LX20, which has been on the market since 2011. The new version is engineered to be quiet, responsive and styled to complement the current crop of SUVs/CUVs.
Conti claims the new tire has "best-in-class" tread life and offers improved wet braking versus the LX20 due to EcoPlus Technology.
Conti is offering the tire in 40 sizes, covering 16- to 22-inch rim diameters in T through V speed ratings.
Both tires carry a UTQG rating of 740 AA.
Both new tires are backed by Continental's Total Confidence Plan, which offers limited warranty, flat-tire roadside assistance, customer satisfaction trial, mileage warranty (if applicable) and road-hazard coverage.
