The full-width siping provides traction and improved handling throughout the life of the tire. According to Continental, the tire is available in tire size 225/70R19.5 load range G, at 16/32-inch tread depth.

The Conti HDR 5 tire incorporates 3D matrix siping for improved traction and tire wear.

The tire is available in tire size 225/70R19.5, load range G, at 16/32-inch tread depth.

Both tires have the Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake (3PMS) certification, are sensor-ready and can be retreaded.

Available in the United States and Canada in Q2 2023, the Conti Scandinavia HD3 is a regional drive tire for use in extreme weather conditions. The directional M+S tread pattern delivers even wear and traction in snow or mud, while the all-season compounding delivers excellent performance during any season. Additionally noted by the company, the tire is engineered with multiple sipe technologies including 3D siping to provide traction during winter weather conditions throughout the life of the tire. It also comes with the 3PMSF certification. The tire is available in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 size, load range H and 27/32-inch tread depth.The Continental 3G casing is designed with high-tensile-strength steel belts capable of supporting multiple retreads and has an extended 4th belt for enhanced retreadability. Continental noted that the tire can be sensor ready and can have RFID capabilities.

These tires come with Continental’s Limited Warranty Adjustment Policy and, according to Continental, this includes coverage against defects in workmanship and materials for seven years or three retreads from the date of manufacture when retreaded by an authorized dealer.
