Continental's EcoContact 6 and WinterContact TS 860 S Approved


BMW is relying on Continental's products as original equipment for the new 4 Series worldwide.

Original Equipment Tyres for BMW 4 Series 

EcoContact 6 summer tyres in 17 and 18-inches sizes have been approved. The WinterContact TS 860 S winter tyres in 18 and 19-inches sizes have been approved for the cold season. All tyres have the XL marking for increased load capacity. Continental supplies tyres for more than 30 per cent of all vehicles produced in Europe

The EcoContact 6 was specially developed for low fuel consumption and high mileage. In addition to short braking distances, the efficient Continental tyre offers, among other things, reliable grip and very good cornering stability even at high speeds. The WinterContact TS 860 S combines snow performance and high safety reserves with steering precision. The winter tyres supplied for the Munich-based automotive manufacturer are self-supporting run-flat tyres. 

If there's a tyre puncture the reinforced sidewall prevents the side of the tyre from becoming trapped between the road and the rim, thus preventing it from slipping off. This means that drivers with a damaged tyre can still drive 80 kilometers to the nearest workshop.
