BMW M4 riding on Continental tyres
Continental shares that BMW has chosen it as an original equipment supplier for the new M4. The tyre maker will deliver its Continental SportContact 6 for factory fitment on the second-generation of BMW’s performance coupe, having received global approvals for the dimensions 275/40 ZR18 (103Y) XL and 285/35 ZR19 (103Y) XL.
“As the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road, tyres play an essential role in providing an optimal driving experience without compromise,” says Dr Holger Lange, head of tyre development for Continental’s original equipment business. “Our engineers develop OE tyres that perfectly match the respective vehicle model and thus optimally support the car’s performance. To capture the specific requirements, Continental works closely with vehicle manufacturers on tyre development.”
