FORT MILL, S.C. — Continental Tire has announced a new retreading partnership that will provide fleet customers in Canada and the US with retreads featuring the same rubber compounding, tread designs and fuel-saving designs as new Continental Tires.
The company says it has partnered with retreader Marangoni to produce the line of retreaded truck tires. They’ll be available to fleets through current Continental and MTNA dealers, according to the company.
The ContiTreads products will be available in designs based on Continental’s HDL Eco Plus (Heavy Drive Long-Haul) and HTL Eco Plus (Heavy Trailer Long-Haul) tires, both of which are SmartWay-certified.
“Continental customers choose our truck tires for their innovations in tread design, exceptional performance in fuel efficiency, and advanced tread compounds,” said Paul Williams, executive vice-president of CTNA – The Americas, commercial vehicle tire division. “But the life-cycle of these benefits should not end when the casing is retreaded. Today with ContiTread, customers will be able to receive a retread product that can last through multiple lifetimes and is produced with the same treads and technologies as their new Continental truck tires.”
“ContiTreads not only look the same as new Continental tires, but they will perform like new tires and still provide excellent fuel economy. You should never have to expect anything less throughout the entire life-cycle of a tire,” Williams added.
