Vehicle manufacturers only use premium tires that conform to the highest quality standards. To guarantee this, they commission more than 100 different tests. From maximum speed to wet and dry braking, handling, comfort and noise level as well as mileage: only if a tire meets all requirements set by the vehicle manufacturer it will be used as original equipment. It’s the only way to make sure that the tire fits to the vehicle – whether it’s a sports car or compact class.
Continental is one of the leading choices for car manufacturers in Europe: almost every third vehicle in Europe is delivered with tires from Continental. That amounts to over 500 different vehicle models with wheel sizes between 13 and 23 inches, which makes us Europe’s first choice among initial fitters and demonstrates the trust placed in us by leading global car manufacturers – Continental tires represent the best driving characteristics at a high level.
