Performance

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 yet excellent traction while driving.

This continental tire was constructed with 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.

Comes with four wide circumferential grooves and additional traction grooves that helps 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 continuous center rib that has independent tread blocks which aids in delivering good handling and enhanced traction while driving. On the inside is the presence of 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.

On wet surface

You will probably love these tires more on wet driving road than on dry roads because they don’t float or skim on wet roads, they are just great on wet surface. They deliver steady traction and grip with great steering feel when driving on wet surface.

On Snow

The continental crosscontact LX20 tires are great on light snow. For heavy snow you will need snow chains, all terrain tires or winter tires. However, they are great on rough roads, rough patches and rough terrains.

Smooth and quiet ride

You find these tires giving you a smooth and noiseless ride when driving, even when speeding on highway you find them silent. The tires are also quiet over rough terrains or potholes on concrete road. They are smooth and stable on rough roads and they can handle a bit of mud, snow and dirt.
