Continental’s ContiCrossContact LX is an excellent option for an outstanding purchase in the Highway and Street Light Truck / SUV Tire. This tire displays excellent handling and traction produced by the design of an open shoulder. Four profound and wide circumferential lines which extend to the opening avoid hydroplaning and decrease tire damage on rough surfaces. To improve steering, three circumferential block rows were added, giving the tire good straight-line performance while still giving the tire a smooth and quiet ride.
