Continental tyre credentials2

The difference between old and new tyres is like night and day. It's quietened the car down, ... it's absolutely made the vehicle. It's changed the vehicle characteristics so much.

Once you put them on Conti the feedback you get is that it’s a different car to drive. I met a guy over the weekend and asked him how his car was going. He said it’s a whole different car, as soon as I drove out of the carpark the steering was a lot more precise, handling was better, it was a wee bit noisy before but now it’s very quiet and a different car to drive."

Tested 67,000 times for the ultimate tyre test: your safety.

Continental has been obsessed with driving safety since their founding. And true to their beginning in the tradition of high quality German manufacture, they make no assumptions when it comes to tyre performance or safety. That’s why on average, by the time a Continental tyre has come to market, it’s been tested over 67,000 times. Continental tests for quietness, handling, wear, vehicle compatibility, and most importantly safety - and there are no limits to the number of times that a tyre can go through their testing regime to ensure that they’re fully satisfied with a tyre’s performance.

Masters of all things automotive.

Continental tyres are made by the Continental corporation; one of the world’s largest automotive component manufacturers. Whether it’s an anti-skid braking system, electronic stability control, or emergency stop assistance, chances are your vehicle has some Continental componentry in it.

What this means is that Continental tyres are designed with a holistic understanding of every part of a vehicle’s safety systems and are designed to deliver optimum performance from those safety systems. This is unique among tyre manufacturers: no other major tyre company designs tyres with an understanding of every part of braking, from pedal to tyre.

When putting your foot down really matters: Continental stops you faster.

In the unpredictable environment that our roads and highways are, your safety depends on your ability to stop quickly when you need to. This is something that Continental has understood since their beginnings, and they’ve worked tirelessly to improve their tyres’ braking response so that you can count on them when you really need to stop.

Does it make a difference? In a Consumer NZ test in 2015 where wet braking was tested from 80 km/hr Continental tyres stopped 11 metres faster than the slowest stopping tyre in the test; a sobering fact when you consider the different outcomes that might mean in a collision.
