Continental PremiumContact 2 E
The Continental PremiumContact 2 E tyre remains a popular choice with motorists. A highly rated premium summer tyre it also offers good braking performance and safety.
Designed for luxury and also mid-range vehicles, the PremiumContact 2 E features a 3D groove tread pattern allowing it to deliver impressive braking performance in wet and dry conditions. To highlight, the innovative groove also clears surface water more efficiently, therefore reducing the risk of aquaplaning in bends and on straight roads.
The addition of the "E" symbol sets this tyre apart from the original PremiumContact 2. It shows that the tyre offers low rolling resistance meaning it is a good match for fuel efficient vehicles. The treads on both variants look similar, however both have different characteristics and therefore should not be used together, this is highlighted by the E mark. However, there is an exception to this rule which is with the 175/65R14 82T ContiPremiumContact 2 E and the ContiEcoContact 3. As a result, you can fit the PremiumContact 2 and the 2 E at the same time due to a shared tread compound.
Reduced rolling resistance is important because it means there is less friction between the road and the tyres. This allows the tyres to go further on one turn and therefore improves the vehicles fuel efficiency. This is also why vehicle manufacturers have been very keen to fit low rolling resistance tyres to their eco-friendly cars.
