No matter how good of a driver you are, it is nearly impossible to avoid everything that could potentially puncture your tyre when on the road. It is always a good idea to check what kind of spare wheel your car comes equipped with and to research if the tyre is the best type to suit your needs.
Continental’s spare tyres are designed for temporary and limited use in the event of a flat tyre. They are approved for speeds up to 50 mph (80 km/h).
We produce spare tyres in many dimensions and types for all of the most commonly driven vehicles, from compacts and standard-sized saloon cars right up to heavy off-road vehicles.
Many automotive producers equip their vehicles with our spare tyres in order to expand the cargo area for better storage or to allow room for alternative drive systems. Less weight in a car also leads to better fuel economy, which means that our space-saving tyres save you money.
Continental temporary spare wheels fit neatly in your vehicle’s boot or other cargo space. It can be hard to find room for everything you need to lug around in your vehicle, but every driver should keep a compact or full-sized spare wheel at all times, as part of a flat tyre safety kit. Run-flat tyres are an exception to the rule, so make sure you know whether you have those fitted on your vehicle.
Continental temporary spare tyres come in different sizes depending on several factors, including your vehicle’s weight. Make sure you ask the service advisor at your dealership which one is right for you.
In order to avoid further damage to your car and to keep you, your passengers and other drivers safe, it is important to make sure you use spare tyres properly.
Getting a flat is not a surprise most people want, but with the right preparation you can avoid injuries and further damage to your car. It is also a good idea to check local laws or MOT regulations to make sure you are compliant with all regulations and legal requirements.
