The last four digits of the DOT serial numbers indicate the production period (week/year). Affected tires will be replaced free of charge.

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.

Here you can find photos of the sidewall lettering to verify if your tires are affected.

Why are we having these tires replaced?

Due to a non-conforming production process, the tires could potentially have an instantaneous pressure loss with a possible negative effect on vehicle handling. 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.

What do I have to do if I have affected tires?

Affected tires will be replaced by the tire dealer where you have purchased the tires.
