Continental today announced a voluntary tire exchange program covering 11.416 studded Continental IceContact 3 tires, wherein a maximum of 16 of these tires are affected.

To date, Continental has not received any reports of accidents or injuries in connection with this condition. The exchange program is being initiated voluntarily to avoid any potential risk to vehicle drivers and other road-users. The affected tires were delivered to customers in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Estonia.
