You might know them for their tires, but Continental AG makes pretty much every other part you can find on a modern car, from bake systems to electronics.

A leader in the passenger tire industry, Continental Tires offers a total of seven different models to make sure you have a tire perfectly suited to your truck, SUV or crossover. In particular, Continental specializes in performance tires for luxury utility vehicles, that offer off-road capability as well as superior on-road performance.

In terms of off-road performance, the TerrainContact A/T is the height of capability for Continental.

The CrossContact LX20 is a unique truck tire in that it is designed for maximum fuel economy in mind.

The CrossContact LX is a well-balanced tire for trucks, utility vehicles and crossovers, providing a decent balance of treat life, quiet operation and all-season capability. Continental also makes an LX Sport model designed more for highway use. It is not recommended.

Instead, those searching for better on-road performance should look to the CrossContact UHP. With lower treadwear but better grip it’s best suited to performance SUVs.

The 4×4 SportContact’s tread pattern gives it away. This is not intended for any real off-roading. Instead it’s built for on-road grip. There’s a reason it comes equipped from the factory on the Porsche Cayenne.

For a slightly less aggressive on-road tire that delivers better off-road performance, look for the 4x4Contact tire.

Continental tire has been operating in North America since 1997 when it purchased General Tire. Continental Tire also owns Hoosier Tire.
