  Is that the best you could do?

#4 Continental Viking Contact 5 (this is not the Continental ExtremeWinter Contact, which is available in the U.S. and Canada)

Sorry. The photo that I saw of the Continental Viking Contact 5 was labeled incorrectly and not that tire. Looking at photos of the Continental Viking Contact 5, it is the same tread pattern.
