Continental understands the streets of the world – and how to brake on them. Every day, we put all of our passion and experience into the development of our innovations. Manufactured of only the highest quality materials, we are setting standards with every new product How? By applying the knowledge of our innovations to every new design: Our high performance tyres give us deep insights on how to develop a safer driving experience for everyday use.
Technologies used in the Conti.eContact™ will help regular cars to be more efficient in the future. The ContiSeal™-principle made its way from the drawing board to being unstoppable on the road. Just a few examples why Continental is one of the Best in Braking.
And just one reason to it: We never stop exploring.
German engineering and accuracy is legendary. As the inventors of the first tread pattern tire in the world, Continental seeks to prove this inventive spirit with every new product. Our centre of our engineering experience can be found in Hanover, Germany.
The research facility with its enormous and internationally renowned test race track, the Contidrom, bundles the expertise of over 1000 hardworking scientists, engineers and designers in Europe and the US. And every new test follows one simple purpose: making driving safer. All that, of course, to the highest German standards – for over 140 years and counting.
Before any Continental innovation goes into production, it is tested intensively. Established and all new test methods guarantee everyday suitability. Continental uses and develops more and more advanced testing measuring technology to deliver matured and optimized products.
Throughout the year, we show time and time again that there are no limits to our tire testing at our test sites in the USA, New Zealand, Sweden, Spain and, last but not least, on our in-house track near Hanover, the Contidrom – which is also a sought-after reference track for independent experts.
Each one of our winter and summer tires from all over the world is thus tested under all kinds of weather and road surface conditions. It goes without saying that this all takes place using the most modern testing methods and measuring technology. 140,000 tires alone are tested each year on a total 200 million kilometers. An international team of professional test drivers perform over 67,000 ests – and circle the world 500 times before an innovation is approved. This way, Continental ensures to deliver only the safest, most comfortable and reliable mobility solutions.
Get on the road with the highest quality.
Car manufacturers only use premium tyres that conform to the highest quality standards. We make sure Continental tyres meet all of these standards, from maximum speed to wet and dry braking, handling, comfort and noise level as well as mileage Our engineers perform more than 100 different tests – as well as the many initial safety tests - to ensure that an original equipment tyre (OE) suits the vehicle perfectly, whether it’s a sports car, van or electric vehicle. Only the right set of tyres ensures that the car’s performance on paper translates into performance on the road.
Safety always plays a major role in tyre development, but other attributes of the tyres have to be pushed forward, too. This involves resolving the traditional conflict of interests between rolling resistance and braking performance, as well as dealing with many other areas where two interests collide.
Nevertheless, facing these challenges every single day, we succeeded to gain OE supplier approval from international car manufacturers. A clear sign of a product’s exceptional quality, which results in becoming the leading original equipment supplier for car manufacturers around the globe.
Since 1995, Continental has already developed major key technologies for safer and more comfortable driving. Now it's up to us to shape the future of the automobile. The Continental Automotive Group is one of the world's leading automobile suppliers with over 87,000 employees in over 170 locations They all work in an unique setup from tires to advanced safety systems with one common vision: making mobility safe, sustainable and interconnected.
As cars get more intelligent, our three divisions Chassis & Safety, Powertrain and Interior work closely together to use this data for a better driving experience. From active and passive safety, data and fuel management right to the eye of the driver, Continental covers the entire process of driving a car – and maybe one day, even let it drive itself.
Having tyre problems can be one of the most frustrating times especially when out and about running errands.
ContiPartner have a trained and qualified technical team to change your tyre be it a flat tyre or a worn out tyre. Once inspection is carried out, our team will be able to guide you fully on the matter and advise you accordingly.
This would especially be useful when preventing your tyres from further damage. We love nothing more than servicing our clients to ensure you are back on the road, having a smoother drive as quick as possible.
Your tyre size can be found on the sidewall of your current tyre and is a sequence of numbers and letters. It’s important to check your existing tyre or to check your vehicle handbook to ensure the right tyre size has been installed.
The first three digits. This displays the width of the tyre in millimetres. A tyre marked 225 will measure 225mm across the tread from sidewall to sidewall.
The fourth and fifth digits of the tyre code that immediately follow the tyre width. The aspect ratio or profile height of the tyre sidewall is expressed as a percentage of the tyre width. So an aspect ratio of 55 for example means that the profile height of the tyre is 55% of its width.
The next two digits represent the size of the wheel rim that the tyre can be fitted to. It is also the diameter of the tyre from bead to bead. So a tyre marked 16 will fit on a 16-inch wheel rim.
If driving is becoming more of a balancing act, our experts are ready to even things out. Wheel balancing ensures that the weight of the wheel and tyre is even around the axle.
Wheel balancing is prime for a smoother drive or else the highway drives may seem bumpier than normal and so will the steering heel vibrations be a constant pain throughout every journey.
At ContiPartner we shall detect and locate the imbalance efficiently ensuring we restore balance in your car.
If you are purchasing new tyres from us, wheel balancing is a MUST.
At ContiPartner, we believe one of the most important considerations to vehicle maintenance is to ensure your wheels are correctly aligned.
Signs of misaligned wheels can be obvious as your car can feel as though it's pulling to one side of the road, or your steering wheel is trembling or vibrating Wheel alignment helps provide optimal tire wear and vehicle handling. Having your wheels aligned guarantees overall safety, performance.
Our technicians are fully qualified and trained to ensure you get the most precise wheel alignment available by using the latest, state of art aligning equipment.
Have a professional wheel alignment every six months or 10,000km, whichever comes first.
One of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine, is to change the oil and the oil filter regularly.
Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, forms a seal between the pistons rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts.
Without the cleaning action of new oil, carbon and varnish buildup would be toxic to the engine. And engine oil even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts.
Your safety being our priority, this is just the least we can offer.
