The tread of these tires is asymmetrical and comes with deep circumferential channels to help reduce the risk of hydroplaning and grants these tires the heavy control expected from a solid set of truck SUV performance tires.
  • Asymmetric tread with wide circumferential grooves
  • Bionic contour
  • Advanced silica technology
  • Rim flange rib protector
  • Enhance grip for braking and reduces risk of hydroplaning
  • Reduces braking distances and improves cornering stability
  • Lowers rolling resistance and enhances wet and dry grip
  • Protects expensive rims from curb damage

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

TIRE CLASS

Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

TREAD TYPE

Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 420
Traction Asphalt - gForce

Performance

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.

Continental CrossContact UHP is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of The Best This tire is outright one of the best 19 inch SUV tires available - and they look great, are extremely quiet and wear reasonably well for a summer only Z rated tire. I drive a 2005 ML500 with an updated wheel package and use the Contis for summer driving only. They are so quiet and respond so quickly to steering inputs that I can't see any other tire to compare with. Several years ago I was in Atlanta, Georgia visiting family for Christmas and we had that blizzard just when I had to get back home to Maryland. These "summer only" tires surprised me through the 10+ hours of driving as the snow situation got worse as I got northwards. NOTE: THESE ARE NOT SNOW TIRES AND I AM NOT ADVOCATING THAT YOU USE THEM IN SNOW. If you chose to use them in snow, please don't complain if they don't drive as snow tires! All I am saying is that I was pleasantly surprised. I started with 285/45/19, moved to 295/45/19 and now back to 285/45/29. As soon as these are worn, I'll go back to the 295 size. Just a couple of photos for reference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied Came standard on my ML500 (ML 550) in some market). Use has varied from school run through side streets to suburban commuting to work, through to towing a fully enclosed motorcycle trailer weighing in at 2000kg to gentle off roading. Happy yes. Good grip wet or dry, minimal road noise, good for a spirited drive through the hills (ok it's not a sports car but with an AMG pack it goes around the corners surprisingly well). Got over 40,000 kilometres so I'll put another set on.
