Manufacturer's description

The tire that delivers all-round winter performance.

Get top-quality performance in all types of winter conditions. The Kristall Montero 3 comfortably handles cold, wet, snow, and ice – and all at an affordable price.

  • Excellent traction on snow (Enjoy reliable winter traction with Fulda’s SnowCatcher Technology. The center grooves form an interlocking network that catches the snow as you drive, helping your tire keep its grip on snow-covered roads).
  • Optimized for all-round performance (The Kristall Montero 3 features Bubble Blade Technology, which balances the need for a dense blade arrangement that can tackle ice and snow, with a stable tread design that handles well in every type of winter weather).
  • Superb grip at low temperatures (The tire uses a special polymer that stays flexible at low temperatures, helping to maintain optimal performance in extremely cold conditions).

Notable Features

Fulda Kristall Montero 3 is the tire for sensible motorists, or at least this is how the tire maker positions this model that has already become the winter classic. Since the winter season 2009/2010, it has been pleasing the motorists with its invariably high quality and reasonable price; this tire model can be deservedly called a living legend because it has served more than one generation of drivers.

The name Fulda Kristall Montero 3 name obviously means that it came to replace the Kristall Montero 2 model, which was able to stay in the range of this brand for only three years; at the same time, over 11 million tires of this model were sold, which is quite an impressive achievement. However, the third generation of the passenger car winter tires of this line has been on the market twice and a half as long and the demand for it does not seem to abate. Snow Catcher Absolutely, Kristall Montero 3 is a model worthy of your attention. Its confident behavior on snow is ensured by the use of the Snow Catcher technology, which was a real breakthrough at the time when this tire was put into mass production but… years have passed, and it’s still as relevant as it has always been! The developers of Fulda were able to use it in the Fulda Kristall Control SUV model in 2017, as well as in the earlier passenger-car version Fulda Kristall Control HP2. V-Directional design Here is what the Snow Catcher technology is about: the central drainage grooves form an interconnected network that gives the tire extra bite on the snow when driving. Meaning, the tire uses a natural effect of snow compaction, during which the snow gets hard-packed after getting into the grooves, thus increasing the tire’s grip and its handling response. Bubble Blade Bubble Blade is yet another interesting technology implemented in the manufacturing of Fulda Kristall Montero 3, which combines a stable tread construction and densely situated lamellas for better bite on snow and ice, thus ensuring a consistent handling performance in any winter weather conditions.
