Tread Wear Indicators:
Consumer friendly indicators alert drivers about tire's performance level in Dry and Wet conditions.
DW indicates tire is tuned for optimum performance (D for Dry, W for Wet).
When indicators disappear, tire is no longer tuned for optimum performance in that particular road condition
Dry Performance

ExtremeContactTM DW has a unique “chamfered edge” technology for dry performance. This dry road surface technology generates greater acceleration grip, handling and braking traction in dry conditions. Solid outer shoulder and chamfered pattern edges concentrates on a maximum surface contact, resulting in increased traction.
Wet Performance

The Continental ExtremeContactTM DW has high void to tread ratio which improves water evacuation for outstanding wet handling.Void to tread ratio means the amount of void area in the tread vs. the amount of tread pattern making contact with the road surface. This void allows water to be absorbed into the pattern and then quickly evacuated.
Dynamic Temperature Distribution

The Continental ExtremeContactTM DW has industry leading treadlife combined with lower rolling resistance and improved energy delivery to the road surface. This outstanding combination of traction, long wear and reduced rolling resistance is accomplished thought “Dynamic Temperature Distribution”.
