For Clinton, MD drivers, Continental Tires are some of the best available for local vehicles. The company has over a century of experience and is a popular brand available at Wiygul Automotive Clinics in Maryland.
Founded in 1871, Continental started with solid, rubber tires for carriages and bicycles in Hanover, Germany. Rapidly expanding with the growing automobile market, their tires and other rubber products soon became standard equipment in many early automobiles. Continental was also an early supplier of brakes and electrical components.
The company began producing in 1898, some of the earliest pneumatic, or air-filled, tires. They were on the Daimler auto that won the 1901 Nice-Salon-Nice automobile race, which was also the first Daimler to bear the Mercedes name. Continental produced the first tire with a patterned tread three years later, changing the auto industry forever. Continental is now the second largest tire producer in Europe and has manufacturing facilities worldwide.
