Continental Launches RV Tire Site
• Continental’s commercial tire division adds tires for larger RVs to its Web site
Fort Mill, South Carolina, (May 10, 2010). New information on the Continental truck tire Web site allows owners of larger recreational vehicles to learn about and select tires. Continental Tire the Americas, LLC (“Continental”) today has launched a new RV section on its commercial vehicle tire Web site at www.continental-truck.com.
Responding to satisfied customers who have written Continental for years with praise for their commercial vehicle tires, the commercial tire division listed its tire products for large recreational vehicles, as well as an informational manual on the site, said Clif Armstrong, director of marketing for commercial tires in the Americas.
“Recreational vehicle owners have raved to us for years about the low vibration, low maintenance and long durability of Continental tires. We decided to no longer keep our tires the ‘best kept secret’ in RVing – and to go ahead and put our product listings out on the Web for tire-savvy consumers,” Armstrong explained.
The new RV section organizes Continental tire offerings for larger RVs by their application – either primarily on highway, or for mixed on/off highway use. The recently introduced HSL1 Coach tire, which includes fuel efficient compounding for primarily on-highway use, is showcased on the site. Other tires recommended on the site include Continental’s HSR1 and HDR.
Continental’s field engineers and warranty experts also developed an informational manual for RV tires which can be printed from the site. The manual includes information about RV loading practices, tire inflation tables, understanding RV weights and common tire wear conditions.
Recreational vehicle owner Don Evans of Nashville, Tenn. said he hopes other RV enthusiasts will check out the new online information and consider Continental tires for their vehicles. “I’ve had them for at least two, maybe three years now, and our Continental tires are and have been, just terrific. Over approximately 7,500 miles they haven’t given me the slightest problem. I’ve heard so many “war stories” from other owners with other brands of tires, but I just love the Continentals,” Evans said.
