Continental tyres will be fitted as original equipment on the sporty new Porsche Macan SUV, after the German tyre manufacturer secured both winter and summer tyre approvals.
The luxury car maker has placed its trust in Continental tyres and approved both 18″ and 21″ summer tyres from the ContiSportContact product family as well as the 18″ ContiWinterContactTS 830 P for use during winter. The tyres all bear the additional mark NO to distinguish them from other tyres.
Porsche has also granted further approvals for 18″, 19″, and 20″ Continental summer and winter tyres for the Panamera models. These winter tyres are approved for speeds up to 240 km/h so that drivers can quickly make headway on dry, obstacle-free roads, even during winter. These Porsche tyres also bear the NO mark, because they have been approved by Porsche.
Continental recommends fitting winter tyres when temperatures drop below 7˚C. In Germany and many other European countries, winter tyres are compulsory when wintry road conditions prevail or for a specified time span.
