Notable Features

Continental IceContact XTRM is a studdable winter tire developed by the engineers of the German tire giant in collaboration with Groupe Touchette – Canada’s largest tire distributing company – and meant to be sold exclusively through the Groupe Touchette retail network. Presented in the beginning of 2020, the Continental IceContact XTRM model offers every feature that is essential for successful operation in constantly changing weather conditions. The tread design and the unique studding technology promise excellent traction on icy roads and great handling response on snow. As technical experts note, the tire’s noise emission was also reduce to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride. The 11-millimeter aluminum studs TriStar, used in this IceContact XTRM model, are produced and supplied by the Finnish company Tikka. In comparison to the standard round “steel spikes”, these studs ensure more dependable traction in all directions, at the same time helping to reduce road wear.

The stud retention technology uses a coating that is proven to be four times stronger and allows the Continental IceContact XTRM to contact 5% more of the icy road.

Did a lot of research and decided to go with this tire, this XTRM was a better value than the Nokian.

Terrific product, had no trouble at all driving through layers of snow and getting out of icy spots. I thoroughly recommend them.

Honestly nothing I can think of... apart perhaps for the price but it’s a worthwhile investment.

Great grip on ice.  Easily the best winter tire I've driven on.  High speeds, lateral stability, cornering, stopping distance, every metric to judge the tires effectiveness was stellar.
What is bad?
Like every studded tire, road noise, but after a couple days of driving it is just background noise and barely noticeable.

Bought the studded version of the XTRM for a 2010 Kia Forte SX and they are awesome for anything winter can throw at you. Used to be a Nokian fan but these are a level above. From deep to packed snow to ice on a wind blown country road they inspire confidence.
What is bad?
Studs are a bit noisy at slow speed on dry asphalt.
