Cleaning your Continental Tires

Tyres also need cleaning now & again, but this is particularly important before putting them into storage when switching from summer to winter tires & vice-versa.

Do not use cleaning fluids which contain solvents or oils, as these will damage the rubber.

Clean water with soap or washing-up liquid is best for cleaning.

If you are using high-pressure car-washing equipment, please bear the following in mind:

  • Never use a circular nozzle for cleaning tires!
  • If you are using a fan nozzle or a so-called dirt cutter for cleaning, keep this at least 20cm (8") from the tire!
