Continental Purecontact LS Improvement

As stated earlier, this tire was designed and produced after the previous version – Continental Purecontact.

The Purecontact LS was however built with more advantages, such as less road-noise, among other things.

It has a whopping 50% less road noise, which is a big improvement, as we all hate when our tires make so much noise that the music at its highest blasting volume cannot even drown.

Not to talk of days we will just do better with a lot of peace while driving or days we will rather hear ourselves think.

Yea, so we can say this was a thoughtful upgrade.

And that is not all.

It has improved grip especially on wet driving surfaces, and better tread life.
