Upon its launch in European markets three years ago, Continental’s new tyre pressure monitoring system was only available as a retrofit option. The availability of ContiPressureCheck has now been extended to tyres shipped straight from the factory with sensors already installed. Continental is using the name ‘iTire’ to distinguish these products from standard tyres.

Nikolai Setzer, head of Continental’s Tire business, reports that company’s plant in Puchov, Slovakia has produced truck and bus tyres with factory-fitted ContiPressureCheck sensors since July, and currently 22 high-demand tyre sizes, especially those in the Conti Hybrid and Conti EcoPlus lines, are available as iTire tyres.

“This (the introduction of iTire) gives the opportunity of sending ContiPressureCheck straight to original equipment trucks or trailers, and also straight to fleets so that it doesn’t have to go through an additional mounting process,” commented Setzer. He added that Continental plans to extend iTire availability to products manufactured in the Asia Pacific region and the Americas, however did not give a date for its introduction in these markets.
