SSR – The self supporting runflat tyre

Spare wheel: minus. Stowage: plus.

The SSR system is a runflat technology developed by Continental especially for low section tyres, which still keeps the tyres compatible with all standard rims.

  • No spare wheel necessary
  • Compatible with conventional rims
  • Fuel efficient (weight of 4 SSR tyres < 5 standard tyres)

The SSR system is a runflat technology developed by Continental especially for low section tyres, which still keeps the tyres compatible with all standard rims.

The SSR principle is based on a self-supporting reinforced sidewall. In case of a puncture, this prevents the sidewall from being crushed between the rim and the road, and the tyre from slipping off the rim, which makes a spare tyre obsolete. Not having to carry a spare tyre means a reduction in weight, which improves fuel efficiency. It also adds up to 80 litres of free space in the trunk. Fitting on four positions is highly recommended, if not yet mandatory by law and a tyre repair is not allowed.

Sealing punctures with ContiSeal™

Don’t let a small puncture stop a great trip.

ContiSeal™ is a technology designed to seal a damaged tyre tread.

  • ContiSeal™ reduces the consequences of tyre tread damage: punctures up to 5 mm in diameter (e.g. nail damage) are sealed immediately thanks to a unique technology
  • Constant mobility and unaltered mileage – no need for an immediate stop or roadside tyre change (see technical instructions on the back page)
  • Unrestricted driving performance identical to that of a tyre without ContiSeal™ technology under normal operation

ContiSeal™ is a technology developed by Continental designed to seal a damaged tyre tread. In case of penetration by foreign objects such as nails, there is no need for immediate roadside tyre changes, and holes remain sealed even if the puncturing object becomes dislodged.

ContiSeal™ is a sticky, viscous sealant layer. It is applied to the inside of the tyre in the tread area. ContiSeal™ seals 80% of all tyre punctures and therefore reduces the risk of flat tyres. ContiSeal™ tyres are marked clearly with a symbol on the sidewall and are compatible with all commonly available rims.

ContiSilent™ – Less interior noise

Silence is a sound. A luxurious one.

ContiSilent™ is a tyre noise-reducing technology developed by Continental.

  • Reduced interior noise on all road surfaces
  • ContiSilent™ functions in all weather conditions
  • No change in any other driving performance characteristics
  • No negative influence on mileage and load/speed capability
  • Same mounting and storage as for standard tyres

ContiSilent™ is a tyre noise-reducing technology developed by Continental. It is designed to reduce interior noise on all road surfaces. ContiSilent™ tyres are equipped with an inner tyre absorber, a polyurethane foam, attached to the inner surface of the tread area with an adhesive. Regardless of the temperature, the structure of the foam stays intact.

ContiSilent™ helps reduce interior vehicle noise up to 9 dB(A), depending on the type of vehicle, its speed and the road surface. At the moment it is only available for summer tyres and is compatible with all commonly available rims. Driving performance is not affected and there is no negative influence on mileage and load/speed capability. Fitting on four positions is recommended.
