Tires are the only link between the vehicle and the road. In critical situations, it is the technology level of the tires that determines whether a vehicle is able to stop in time or stay in the correct lane during cornering maneuvers. The Tire Division is known for maximizing safety through short braking distances and excellent grip as well as reducing fuel consumption by minimizing rolling resistance.
We offer the right tires for every application – from passenger cars through trucks, buses, earthmoving, port, and industrial vehicles to tractors, bicycles and motorcycles. The division produces tires under the brand names of Continental, Uniroyal, Semperit, General Tire, Viking, Gislaved, Euzkadi, Sime Tyres, Barum, Mabor, Matador, AmeriSteel, Novum, Simex, Astrum Blue, and TecnoTread.
