FORT MILL, S.C. — Navistar has made Continental tires standard on its International PayStar, WorkStar and DuraStar severe-service and medium-duty trucks, the tire maker has announced.
The contract commenced Jan. 1.
“International truck customers count on their vehicles to provide heavy-duty performance and maximum uptime, even in the most demanding conditions,” said Tom Fanning, director of original equipment sales for Continental. “Now they can rely upon their Continental truck tires to work in tandem with these powerful vehicles, providing the top-level reliability and high mileage that can only come from a tire engineered to handle the toughest driving conditions.”
The deal marks Continental’s expansion into the severe- and medium-duty segments.
“The severe-duty cycle of International WorkStar and PayStar trucks required a tire selection that can perform under these conditions, and Continental truck tires have the intelligent engineering and durability required,” said Melissa Gauger, vocational marketing manager for Navistar.
