Our tyres live longer


The many lives of our Continental Truck Tyres.

Quick Facts

Continental Truck Tyres are designed for ultimate economy over the entire life. The ContiLifeCycle™ begins with the new tyre and continues with our premium retreading solutions and ContiCasingManagement.

The ContiLifeCycle prolongs the life of your tyres, thereby significantly lowering your tyre costs.

When you purchase a retreaded tyre, you not only lighten your tyre budget but also help to protect the environment. Reusing the casing saves energy and raw materials. Multiple use of the casing also reduces the number of old tyres in circulation. 


New Continental Tyres

New Continental Tyres – Built for more than just one life

Not all roads are equal and the same goes for transport. Knowing this, we have developed Continental truck tyres that suit the unique conditions of your transport activities. That means they unleash their full potential to increase the overall economy of your vehicles.

The Continental casing is what makes our tyres so economical. Built with optimised and perfectly matched reinforcements and mixture components and a contour that best suits the application, the Continental casing achieves outstanding structural durability. Durability that pays off.

The Continental casing is therefore a worthy investment because it serves as a valuable raw material for retreading. By reusing the casing, you protect not only the world’s resources, but also conserve your own budget.



ContiCasingManagement™ – An incredibly valuable service

Buying Continental truck tyres pays off very quickly. Not only because of our tyres' outstanding quality and long life. you also have our ContiCasingManagement to help you keep an eye on costs throughout the entire life of the tyre.

ContiCasingManagement uses standardised methods to take care of the entire casing management process. For instance, you can use our online casing management system to keep a constant eye on your used casing stock and decide at any moment what you want to do with your used tyres: sell them, retread them or simply leave them with us – whatever you want, however and whenever you want it. That gives you and your fleet the greatest possible flexibility and transparency.

ContiTread is the Continental premium tread for cold retreading.

This tread is produced exclusively with Continental mixtures and profiles. By choosing this method, you give your tyre a new profile, prolong its life and thereby reduce your total tyre costs.

The best results are achieved when high-tech and high quality Continental casings are used in retreading. ContiTread can, however, be applied to other makes of casing.

Using our premium hot retreading service ContiRe, you give new life to your worn Continental Truck Tyre and realise the full economic performance of the tyre.

ContiRe production is analogue to how we manufacture our new tyres – using the same profiles and rubber mixtures. Exclusively Continental casings are used, which are retreaded from bead to bead. This method also renews the side walls, and the tyres remain regroovable.

To ensure our high quality standard, every tyre is put through durability and safety tests according to a standardised quality system. Accordingly, every ContiRe is covered by the Continental warranty. All this and its outstanding mileage make a ContiRe the best choice among the retreadable tyres.

Cold retreading

Using the cold retreading method, a patterned and prevulcanised tread is applied to the buffed casing. This tread is placed, under constant tension, together with an unvulcanised bonding ply onto the buffed casing; pretensioning ensures already prior to vulcanisation that the tread adapts optimally to the tyre contour and guarantees that the parts are effectively bonded together while the tyre is in the autoclave (curing chamber). Then the prepared tyre is “packed” into a curing tube (envelope) and cured under pressure in the autoclave.

ECE 109

ECE Regulation No. 109 defines type approval standards in the production of retreaded pneumatic tyres for commercial vehicles and their trailers. This regulation defines strict quality control measures that have been compulsory for retreaders since September 2006 to ensure high-quality retreaded tyres.
