The Continental TrueContact tire is a standard Touring All-Season tire developed for coupes, sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles.
It Features Continental's EcoPlus Technology to help conserve fuel, extend tread-wear and maintain wet braking grip. The TrueContact tires are designed to provide all-season traction in dry, wet and winter conditions, including light snow. EcoPlus Technology provides long-wear, best-in-class wet braking, and can save the consumer up to $550 over the life of the tire compared to another tire that does not have the EcoPlus Technology.
This describes the sidewall appearance. Examples include Black Sidewall, White Sidewall, and White Letters.
The load index (LI) is a 2 or 3 digit number that corrolates to the maximum amount of weight the tire can carry. For example, a tire with a load index of 87 indicates that the tire can carry a maximim load of 1,201 lbs. In the case of our example the 87 identifies the tires ability to carry a maximum of 1,201 lbs. So 4 tires will carry a maximum of 4,804 lbs. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimim Load Index. It is not recommended to install tires with a lower Load Index. By doing so, this could cause your tires to be overloaded thus potentially causing a blowout.
Speed Ratings (SR) are based on laboratory tests and indicates the maximum speed the tire can achieve. These tests are based on limited time trials. Higher speed rating tires typically will yield better handling capabilities, but may often result in lower mileage. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimum Speed Rating. It is not recommended to install a tire with a lower speed rating as it could affect the handling of your vehicle. It is important to note that speed ratings only apply to tires that have not been damaged, altered, under-inflated or overloaded. Additionally, most tire manufacturers maintain that a tire that has been cut or punctured no longer retains the tire manufacturer's original speed rating, even after being repaired because the tire manufacturer can't control the quality of the repair.
|Ply Rating||Not Available||
Ply Rating is related to the max load capacity. This value can be defined with a letter or number. The higher the number/letter, the higher the load capacity.
To help consumers evaluate their tires, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) created the Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQG). The UTQG rates tires are rated on their tread-wear, traction performance, and temperature resistance. The grade for each of these can be found on the sidewall of your tire (except for winter tires and certain light truck tires). Click here for more information.
|Max Single Load(lbs)||1356||The maximum load this tire will support. Remember to multiply this number by the number of tires installed on your vehicle to get the maximum carrying capacity. This number is directly related to the Load Index.|
|Max Single Air Pressure(PSI)||44||The maximum air pressure this tire will support. This does not represent the amount of air pressure your tires should have at all times. Consult with your owner's manual to determine the best air pressure you should use for your vehicle.|
|Tread Depth||11.0||The amount of tread on the tire. Once the tire is worn to 2/32nds, it is considered fully used and should be replaced at that time. Most tires will have tire indicators in the grooves of the tire to help you determine when the tires are worn down to 2/32nds.|
Nondirectional - most common, same tread pattern on inside & outside of the tire. Can be rotated to all four corners of vehicle. Asymmetrical - tread pattern is different on the inside to the outside of the tire, and must be mounted properly. Can be rotated to all four corners of the vehicle. Directional tires - roll in only one direction, must be mounted properly. Once mounted they must remain on the same side of the vehicle, and only be rotated front to rear.
|Rim Width Range||5.5-7.0||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||6.0||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||7.9||The measurement from sidewall to sidewall.|
|Tread Width||Not Available||The measurement from one side of the tread to the other side of the tread.|
|Overall Diameter||25.0||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|
|Manufacturer Part Number||15497080000||Manufacturer part number (sku)|
The tires and the price is awesome. I would recommend these and other Continental tires who want a nice ride and reliability.
My tires were delivered in a very short amount of time. They were exactly what I ordered and were in good condition. I now have 10k on them and have seen very little wear at all. Actually, they don't look like they have worn at all. They provide a quiet ride and great dry & wet handling. I drive a 2015 Honda Odyssey & live in Florida so haven't had a chance to test them in snow. Go figure?!? Overall I could not be happier with my purchase and the service I have recived form tires-easy.com
Great price from tires-easy - install them and forget them - they do everything well
Great tires. Ride is softer and improved over original equipment. Price is very good for a tire with this long mileage. My original Continentals were still good at 60,000 miles when changed but I was going on along trip and put on new. This is the second time I bought tires from tires-easy and their service has been exemplary-best tire prices, fast shipping, good advice. Don't hesitate to buy tires this way- I saved hundreds over dealer prices.
Have put 5000 mile son them so far. Wet traction is great and road noise is almost non existent. I would recommend these tire to anyone.
I've been buying mostly Contis for my cars since 1972, and none has ever disappointed me. I'm happy to say that my new Conti TrueContact 225/55R19s for my 2014 Dodge Journey R/T are the BEST OF THE BEST. Best tires I've ever put on my car. Their braking, quiet operation, handling, ride, fuel economy improvement are all improved as Continental claimed they would. My car's handling is transformed for the better. Thank you, Tires-Easy.com, for making this a simple, fast and smooth transaction. Had the tires installed locally by Palmetto Tires of Sumter, SC and was completely happy with their service, too. I am totally pleased with the results of my purchase. My decision to continue to drive Contis has been vindicated. I'm a happy driver!
Tires are on a 2008 Prius. After Goodyears, Michelins and Bridgestones, I think these are the best balance of performance, fuel economy, rain handling and, they are quiet to boot. Tires are too new to evaluate wear, but, regardless, they are excellent tires.
only have a 500 miles on these tires. So far so good. Ride better than OEM continentals. very impressed with response and traction. extremely quiet tire. Tires-easy, incredible price and even got the manufacture rebate. Highly recommend. No hassels having them installed either. Excellent experience for the first time buying tires online. The first choice in buying tires in the future.
Decent tire, quiet, good grip, and seems to be wearing slowly so far. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it is a heavy tire, so my gas mileage has dropped about 10 pct since installation. But this will get better as the tire wears and gets lighter.
