Q: How much air should I put in my tyres?

A: Proper inflation is the single most important part of tyre care. Tyre pressure is not determined by the type of tyre or the size, but upon your car and the initial recommendation given by your car maker.

To find out what your car’s tyre pressure should be, refer to the placard, which is usually found on the inside drivers door panel, glovebox, fuel cap or under the bonnet or your car's handbook.

We do recommend that you check your tyre pressure at least once a month and when your tyres are cold. Do not check your pressure during a long journey as air expands when it heats up, this means you will get incorrect readings on the pressure gauge.

Q: When is your next promotion?

A: From time to time Continental will offer promotions through selected authorised retail outlets. Please check the promotions tab at to see if there is a promotion running and where it can be accessed.
