Continental Tire has just received approval to provide original equipment for the new BMW X1 that will be produced in Hanover, Germany. The company got authorization to supply the EcoContact 6 Q Continental tire in 3 sizes – 18, 19, and 20 inches.
The tire is built to optimize economical driving on all vehicles. It comes with a specialized rubber compound that minimizes energy absorption when the car is moving. This in turn reduces friction.
