Continental CrossContact LX20
The EcoPlus CrossContact is a sporty tire built with an aggressive symmetric tread design that can handle rough pavement and deliver great traction and grip on dry pavement.
Also, you get a comfortable and quiet ride from these tires when driving.
The CrossContact is your answer if you need a tire that is great on the highway, yet can handle a light off-road driving condition.
The EcoPlus technology also helps it to get even wear and excellent traction while driving.
This Continental tire was constructed with an Eco tread compound that has +silane additives and Tg-F polymers and this helps to deliver better traction while lowering the rolling resistance of the rubber.
It comes with four wide circumferential grooves and additional traction grooves that help improve its grip and handling while driving.
These grooves are strategically placed around the tread to aid in reducing road noise and increase overall ride quality.
Also, it is built with a continuous center rib that has independent tread blocks which aid in delivering good handling and enhanced traction while driving.
On the inside, there are two steel belts that are reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide for added strength and durability.
Traction is great on all types of road conditions, including snow.
Also, if you find yourself wanting to drive on a light off-road terrain, this model is up to the task.
On Dry Surface
It gives good brake and good steering handling with good grip when on a dry surface.
However, if you have a high-performance car built for speed, then you should go for a high-performance tire, except that, you are good to go any day with these tires.
