Official sponsor: CONTINENTAL
Tires are the essential point of contact between your car and the road. We work to ensure that your tires will always offer excellent braking, maximum safety, and pure driving pleasure. That’s why Continental is one of the leading manufacturers of passenger and light truck tires in Europe. We’re also one of the world's largest passenger tire manufacturers in the original equipment and replacement market.
But wait, there’s more. We rank among the top five automotive suppliers worldwide, with divisions specializing in brake systems, instrumentation, systems and components for powertrains and chassis, vehicle electronics, infotainment solutions, and technical elastomers. And worldwide, the corporation has more than 244,000 employees in 61 countries and 554 locations. That’s a big family.
So as you can see, a passion for mobility is at the heart of everything we do. And our goal is to make mobility cleaner, safer, more intelligent and affordable for everyone.
The tire division consists of the Continental, Uniroyal, Semperit, Barum, General Tire, Viking, Gislaved, Mabor, Matador and Sportiva brands. Continental, our premium brand, enjoys a leading position in the original equipment and replacement business.
Tradition and progress
Looking back on more than 145 years of innovation and growth, we’re very proud of our heritage at Continental tires. We invented the first ever patterned tire tread. And the first ever tubeless tire. Plus the world’s first driverless car. Also the world’s first eco-friendly tire. And the world’s fastest road legal tire. That’s a lot of firsts – and we haven’t even begun to list all of them.
Founded in Hanover, Germany, in 1871, we’ve amassed a vast amount of knowledge and expertise. Decades of extensive research and testing, for example, have proven beyond doubt that tires aren’t only crucial for a vehicle’s overall performance – they significantly influence braking power, too.
With an emphasis on progress, we continually strive to optimize our product range. The Continental product development teams work to maximize all safety-relevant characteristics of our tires, while simultaneously minimizing rolling resistance. These aspects make a fundamental contribution to driving safety and sustainability.
TESTING TIRES IN EVERY SITUATION
We vigorously test our tires on proving grounds around the globe, including the Contidrom, our in-house track near Hanover. Within the Contidrom is the world’s first fully automated tire-testing system, AIBA, where tests are conducted year-round on wet and dry road surfaces.
This relentless focus on every single safety and performance aspect is confirmed repeatedly by independent tests around the world, where we regularly achieve the highest recommendations and accolades.
Furthermore, our tires must also pass hundreds of vehicle manufacturers’ stringent tests to ensure they perform to the highest standards. Only then are Continental tires approved as Original Equipment (OE).
Verified by partners
The modern car operates through a complex interaction of sophisticated components – and that includes the tires. The right set of tires guarantees that the car’s performance on papertranslates into performance on the road.
It’s a good thing, then, that one in every three cars in Europe delivered from the factory is fitted with tires from Continental. As the leading OE supplier in the European market, gaining approval from our partners is a sign of a product’s exceptional quality.
WE ARE EVEN MORE THAN TIRES
