On Burke, VA roads, Continental Tires are among the best available for local cars, SUVs, and trucks. This international brand has over a century of experience and is one of the more popular brands we offer at every Wiygul Automotive Clinic.
Founded in 1871 in Hanover, Germany, Continental Tires started with solid, rubber tires for bicycles and carriages. It quickly expanded into the growing automobile market, and their soft rubber products soon became standard equipment for early autos. Continental was also an early supplier of electronic components and brake systems.
In 1898, Continental began production of some of the earliest air-filled, or pneumatic, tires for autos. Those same tires were on the Daimler racing auto that won the 1901 Nice-Salon-Nice automobile race. It was also the first Daimler to carry the name, Mercedes. Three years later, Continental produced the first tire with a patterned tread, changing the auto industry forever. Today, it is the second largest tire producer in Europe with manufacturing plants worldwide.
All Wiygul Clinics offer an extensive line of Continental Tires to our Burke, VA and other customers. Among the most popular models include the Conti Eco Contact 3, the Conti Premiere Contact, and the Conti 4x4 Sport Contact. Their high quality and low price, combined with our expert technicians, make Wiygul Automotive the first choice for new tires in Virginia.
The Eco Contact 3 is an excellent Summer tire for compact and mid-range passenger cars. Important features of this tire include circumferentially stiff tread ribs, specially designed grip edges and incisions in the outside shoulder. It has optimal siping, wide circumferential grooves in the tread and lateral grooves on the inside shoulder.
Together, these features provide excellent braking performance, directional stability, and precise handling. They also increase traction on every surface and are particularly exceptional on wet curves, which also provides a very comfortable ride for the driver and passengers.
The Premiere Contact is a luxury tire designed for high-end sedans and other luxury automobile models. Features include an ultra-wide, four-groove tread pattern which minimizes road noise and maximize the comfortable ride for passengers and drivers. The Acoustic Alterra Technology and Tri-net Silica tread compound increase the life of the tire and reduce fuel consumption by lowering rolling resistance. Each Premiere Contact tire also comes with an 80,000 Mile Limited Treadwear Warranty.
The 4x4 Sport Contact is an ultra-high performance tire designed for light, passenger trucks and SUVs. It is the Original Equipment tire for Porsche Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo vehicles. Key features and benefits include an asymmetric tread pattern with compact outer shoulders that provides excellent stability on corners, and a quiet, comfortable ride. The wide tread grooves ensure superb drainage and greatly reduce the risk of aquaplaning when driving on wet surfaces.
Each 4x4 Sport also comes with Continental’s Total Confidence Plan, a 60 Day Trial, and a 3-Year Roadside Assistance Plan.
