Continental Tires

Continental Offers Wide Range of SUV Tires up to 25 inches

Continental offers a range of tires for SUVs and 4x4 vehicles that leaves virtually nothing to be desired. Various summer tire models are available for four-wheel-drive vehicles to ensure that the right tires are available for each individual vehicle and its driving style.

Leading 4x4 manufacturers, including Audi, BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes, Porsche, and Volkswagen, have already issued original equipment approvals.

This year, Continental is offering 15 new items for 4x4 vehicles, SUVs, and crossovers. These tires are suitable for rims of 15 to 23 inches in diameter and aspect ratios of 85% to 25%. They are approved for speeds of up to 300 km/h.

Conti4x4Contact and Conti4x4SportContact:
The Conti4x4Contact offers excellent traction on the road and on easily navigable terrain. It achieves short braking distances, a prompt steering response, and a high degree of directional stability. The staggered tread blocks generate minimal noise, while the tire's wide longitudinal and transverse tread grooves greatly reduce the risk of aquaplaning. The Conti4x4Contact is particularly well suited as a tire for compact and standard-weight SUVs and crossovers and has been approved by vehicle manufacturers for a long list of vehicles.

Continental recommends the Conti4x4SportContact for fast and powerful four-wheel-drive vehicles. Its asymmetrically patterned tread with the compact outer shoulder area ensures superb cornering stability, while its wide tread grooves efficiently expel water from the tire on rain-slicked roads. The tread block rows are staggered for a quieter roll. Conti4x4SportContact tires are fitted as original equipment on SUVs from European manufacturers.

ContiCrossContact AT:
The ContiCrossContact AT has been developed to meet the demands of drivers who intend to use their 4x4 vehicles off-road but still want a comfortable margin of safety in road traffic. The ContiCrossContact AT's open shoulder offers good driving properties on rugged terrain. The tire not only bites into loose terrain but also provides safe cornering performance when the going gets rough. The sturdy tread compound prevents the tire from being damaged or notched when used off-road and extends its service life. The ContiCrossContact AT is available with white sidewall lettering in many sizes. It is approved for speeds of up to 210 km/h and can be fitted on rims of 15 to 18 inches in size.

ContiCrossContact LX Sport:
The ContiCrossContact LX Sport has been developed for the original equipment market and approved by European, U.S., and Japanese SUV manufacturers. As a result, it is now also a popular choice in the replacement business and is sold and distributed via car dealers and the tire trade. As a tire for more high-powered vehicles, it offers good grip and precise steering response on wet and dry roads, as well as high mileage and comfort. Its range of possible applications includes, in particular, motoring on paved roads, country lanes, and dirt tracks, as well as light off-road duty – as a tractor unit for horse trailers, for instance.

With sales of around €33.3 billion in 2013, Continental is among the leading tire manufacturers, automotive suppliers, and industrial partners worldwide. As a supplier of tires, technical elastomer products, brake systems, systems and components for powertrains and chassis, instrumentation, infotainment solutions and vehicle electronics, Continental contributes to enhanced driving safety and global climate protection. Continental is also an expert partner in networked automobile communication. Continental currently employs more than 182,000 people in 49 countries.

As one of the world's leading tire manufacturers with more than 44,000 employees, the Tire division achieved sales of €9.6 billion in 2013. Today, the division has 24 production and development locations worldwide. The broad product range and continuous investments in R&D make a major contribution to cost-effective and ecologically efficient mobility.

Continental is one of Europe's leading passenger car and light truck tire manufacturers and is the world's fourth-largest passenger car and light truck tire manufacturer in the original equipment and replacement business sectors. The product development focus of the Continental premium brand is to optimize all safety-relevant characteristics, while simultaneously minimizing rolling resistance.

Continental's Tire division is an official sponsor of the German DFB Cup, Major League Soccer in the U.S.A. and Canada, the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, and UEFA EURO 2016TM in France.
