Driving your vehicle in cold temperature zones can negatively affect its overall performance. This is especially true for your tires. Cold weather may cause them to be dangerously underinflated. To avoid that, you should change your tires according to the season. Consequently, for the winter months, your car should have winter tires that will provide excellent traction on ice or snow. These have extra rows of sipes, which are small treads within larger tread sections that add extra grip in cold conditions. The rubber these tires are made of is thicker and contains a silica-based compound that maximizes contact with the road. To find the most reliable and durable winter tires for your vehicle, go with CARiD and enjoy comfortable driving in the areas where winter is tough.
Continental was founded in Hanover in 1871 as the stock corporation "Continental-Caoutchouc- und Gutta-Percha Compagnie". The company's 50th anniversary sees Continental as the first German company to bring cord tire onto the market. The stiff linen square-woven fabric is thus replaced by the more pliable cord fiber fabric. The first giant pneumatic tires are made by Continental and replace the solid tires used until that time on commercial vehicles. Manufacturing at the main factory in Hanover included soft rubber products, rubberized fabrics, and solid tires for carriages and bicycles. The Passenger and Light Truck Tires division has production facilities at 54 locations in 35 countries and a workforce of 31,153. It generated sales of €7.0 billion in 2011. Today, Continental ranks among the top 5 automotive suppliers worldwide and holds the number 2 spot in Europe.
