Why Continental

Original equipment

Trust in us. As experts do.


Get on the road with the highest quality.

Car manufacturers only use premium tyres that conform to the highest quality standards. We make sure Continental tyres meet all of these standards, from maximum speed to wet and dry braking, handling, comfort and noise level as well as mileage.

Our engineers perform more than 100 different tests – as well as the many initial safety tests - to ensure that an original equipment tyre (OE) suits the vehicle perfectly, whether it’s a sports car, van or electric vehicle. Only the right set of tyres ensures that the car’s performance on paper translates into performance on the road.

Safety always plays a major role in tyre development, but other attributes of the tyres have to be pushed forward, too. This involves resolving the traditional conflict of interests between rolling resistance and braking performance, as well as dealing with many other areas where two interests collide.

Nevertheless, facing these challenges every single day, we succeeded to gain OE supplier approval from international car manufacturers. A clear sign of a product’s exceptional quality, which results in becoming the leading original equipment supplier for car manufacturers around the globe. Almost one in every three new cars produced in Europe leaves the factory fitted with Continental tyres. That makes us Europe's first choice among all tyre producers.

If the leading car manufacturers trust Continental, so can you.
