      Tire Tread Depth Comparison on wet roads


      Get to know the difference in braking distances between worn out tires, used tires and new tires.


      • Brake Test / Objective comparison of three tread depth versions
        Three vehicles equipped with
        1. New Continental PremiumContatc 6 tires with 8mm tread depth
        2. Used Continental PremiumContact 6 tires with 3mm tread depth
        3. Worn out Continental PremiumContact 6 tires with 1,6 mm tread depth

      Media Experience

      • You will drive identical vehicles (Golf 7 GTI) with different tread depths and do a full brake on a wet track
      • While you drive and brake all data will be measured and explained to you by one of our tire engineers
      • Tread depth on wet roads is key for safety and often understimated

      Benefits for the driver / society  

      • Tread depth is a key factor for your safety
      • Always control you tire tread depth from time to time
      • Aquaplaning with worn out tires = no vehicle control
