For automobile owners in Waldorf, MD, Continental Tires are among the best choices available. The company is a popular brand at every Wiygul Automotive Clinic in Maryland and has over a century of experience as a leader in tire manufacturing.
Continental was founded in 1871, in Hanover, Germany as a solid, rubber tire company for bicycles and carriages. It expanded with the quickly growing automobile market, and soon their tires and other soft, rubber products became standard equipment on many early car models. Continental was also an early supplier of electrical and braking components.
The company began production in 1898, of some of the earliest air-filled (pneumatic) tires. They were on the Daimler car with the Mercedes name. That same model also won the 1901 Nice-Salon-Nice auto race. Continental produced the first patterned tread tire in 1904, forever changing the auto industry. Today, it is the second largest European tire manufacturer with facilities around the world.
