Continental Run Flat tyres

Continental produces a number of models which may come as a Run Flat tyre.

This type of tyre is created to ensure that in the event of a puncture or sudden loss of pressure, the tyre continues to perform for a limited period of time – allowing you to get your vehicle to a garage.

Continental signify that a particular model is a Run Flat tyre by printing SSR at the end of the product model description on the sidewall of the tyre.

To check whether the tyres you currently have on your vehicle are Run Flat tyres, check for the letters SSR on the tyre's sidewall.

Please note: Continental also have a range of ContiSeal tyres - these do not utilise Run Flat technology and should not be fitted if you require Run Flat tyres.
