Continental ControlContact Tour AS Tire Review & Rating
Built to deliver higher performance, a more comfortable ride and longer treadlife, the Continental ControlContact Tour AS is an exclusive offering of Discount Tire. This model is designed for drivers of all types of coupes, sedans, crossovers and minivans.
Looking at the ControlContact Tour AS you can immediately notice the tread pattern is similar to the Continental TrueContact. Same design, same 800 UTQG rating, same warranty, etc. The only real difference we can find is that the Tour AS has a five rib pattern where the TrueContact has four.
The tires uses Continental’s unique tread compound that includes Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives for enhanced traction and handling on all types of road surfaces, as well as a longer tread life. Full depth sipes around the tread combine with the compound to give this tire increased grip and reduced stopping distances on wet or snow covered pavement.
Continental adds what they call a comfort band around the tire that sits between the steel belts and the tread to absorb bumps and road shocks for a smoother and more comfortable ride. We have to say it does its job well. The ride is very comfortable on even some of the roughest roads.
Sizes are available ranging from 14-17 inches, and all come with a T-speed rating. This model is backed by a 90K mile tread warranty.
- Excellent dry and wet traction
- Better than average winter performance
- Smooth and comfortable ride
- Traction in deep snow
- Not easy to find at times
Like the ControlContact Sport AS, this new Tour AS is an impressive tire in the Continental lineup. The performance and ride comfort is among the better tires in the touring all-season class, while the cost is lower than what you’ll find on most other top brands.
The only real issue we have with the tire would be traction in very deep snow. That said, how often do you really find yourself driving through 12 inches of snow every year?
We’ve heard from many other drivers that have stated how well they like the ControlContact Tour. It is a solid choice for minivans and sedans where good traction, comfort and treadlife are your main priorities. Overall, a very good tire from Continental.
