The Contintental Vanco 8 is a RV tire that was designed for RV use, and is made for drivers who want a great combination of heavy load capacity, great wear, and incredible noise reduction. The Continental Vanco 8 is made to withstand the toughest weather and maintain traction on dry and wet roads. The Vanco 8 is often used as a replacement for original equipment tires that come on medium, and heavy duty RVs. The Vanco 8 tires aren't intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. Being an original equipment replacement tire, these RV summer tires are generally bought as replacements directly for worn sets of the RVs original tires. The Continental Vanco 8 molds an all weather compound, into a symmetric tread which features interlocking shoulder blocks which helps with cornering stability, and strong middle ribs which combine steering response and extreme comfort. Wide set circumferential grooves made to improve handling, tracking, and stability, and hundreds of deep set sipes help to prevent hydroplaning and promote traction in inclement weather. The tire's structure includes an optimized belt contour to provide a stable ride and good tread wear. The outside blocks on the shoulder have built in rim protectors which prevent against hazards that could have otherwise have damaged the rim.
