Of course, you are concerned about the environment and want to leave behind a green planet for your children and their children. But as a commercial driver/fleet owner, you cannot just give up your job, just because your vehicles cause pollution. No one expects that.

But if you had an option of doing your job without harming the environment, we are sure you would jump at it. Well the Continental Vanco Eco tyres from Continental Tyres are just right for you as they bring the highest levels of environment friendliness amongst van tyres by reducing carbon dioxide emissions significantly.

The Continental VancoEco tyres are part of Continental’s Vanco tyre range that comprises popular van tyres like the Continental Vanco Contact 2 tyres.

‘Green’ Benefits of the Continental Vanco Eco tyres

(a) ‘Greener’ environment due to reduced carbon dioxide emissions from your van.

(b) To use an American slang, more ‘Greenbacks’ in your pocket/bank, as you save money on fuel costs.

(c) The ‘green’ signal is switched on for your health as the assured safety of Continental VancoEco tyres keep safety stress and concerns far away.

How Do the Continental Vanco Eco Tyres Achieve all This?

  • Specialised Tread Compound

The Continental VancoEco tyres utilise a specialised silica enhanced tread compound, which has inherently low rolling resistance. Also the tread compound is particularly reinforced and the tyre contour is flattened so that the tyre remains practically unchanged even while driving under heavy loads. This further lowers the rolling resistance.

The overall reduction in rolling resistance is close to 30%, leading to a 4% decrease in fuel consumption and corresponding cost savings.

  • Innovative Tread Pattern

Reducing the rolling resistance invariably compromises safety in standard tyres. One would rather be safe than save money on fuel, you would think. But with the Continental Vanco Eco tyres, you are not forced to choose because you can have both.

The tread pattern of the Continental Vanco Eco tyres is equipped with gripping edges that increase the area of the contact patch and facilitate rapid braking responsiveness on both and dry surface. So braking distances are really short giving the confidence to drive on any surface, with any amount of load, stress free.

Seem to wear quite quickly but the best tyre I've used in this limited size range. Scrubbing is very noticeable over time.
