The Polestar 2 is coming ex work with Continental PremiumContact 6 and SportContact 6 tyres in size 245/40 R20. Both tyres are approved for speeds up to 149 mph and have an XL mark for a higher maximum load.
The PremiumContact 6 is specially designed for sporty and comfortable driving, but thanks to its low rolling resistance it can also increase the range for electric vehicles. Continental’s tyre engineers developed a new compound which ensures excellent grip performance on dry and wet road surfaces, enabling the PremiumContact 6 to combine precise steering response and safety characteristics. Compared to the previous model, the mileage is 15 percent better, the rolling resistance is five percent lower and the external rolling noise has been reduced by ten percent. The tyres supplied by Continental for the Polestar 2 have the best-possible EU tyre label rating of A in the wet grip category – appropriate for this car, which scored a top five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test.

The SportContact 6 features outstanding performance on dry and wet surfaces as well and ensures a high level of stability and braking performance – even at high speeds. The tread pattern ensures excellent steering precision, especially when cornering under lateral forces.
The Polestar 2 is supplied ex works with PremiumContact 6 and SportContact 6 tyres from Continental.
Continental’s tyres supplied ex work for the Polestar 2 come with ContiSilent technology for an especially quiet driving experience. In these tyres a layer of polyurethane foam is applied to the inner surface to dampen the vibrations from driving. This considerably reduces the elements of the rolling noise in the vehicle interior, which are perceived as especially irritating. ContiSilent is compatible with all commercially available rims and has no negative effects on a vehicle’s performance, fuel consumption, maximum load or maximum speed.
For extra safety in winter, Continental also offers the WinterContact TS 850 P. It is equipped with a high number of blocks and sipes in longitudinal direction to its tread. This results in enhanced traction and shorter braking distances on snow.
