About this Manufacturer:
Continental has been in the rubber industry for well over 100 years. Tracing their ancestry all the way back to Germany in 1871, they started churning out their first pneumatic automotive tires as early as 1898. Since those early days they have grown to become a global presence and supply the United States from their headquarters in South Carolina. The folks at Continental make a high quality product and they are not afraid to prove it by taking their wares to the race track. Continental tires have been used in numerous racing events and are currently the official tire for the Grand-Am Road Racing series. The company also thoroughly tests all of their tires at one of the best testing facilities in the world, The Uvalde Proving Grounds. The Uvalde facility features a huge mix of dirt, gravel, mud and road courses to test everything from traction to tread wear in a myriad of conditions. Today Continental has expanded its lineup to include a host of other automotive parts and they look to be an industry leader for years to come.
