Continental Tire the Americas LLC has been named the official tire of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. Fitments from Continental’s line of passenger and light truck and SUV tires, including the ExtremeContact line of tires, will be featured on Lingenfelter built cars.

“Lingenfelter is known for its performance excellence and it’s an honor to be aligned with such a noteworthy brand,” says Tony Talbert, tuning key account manager for Continental Tire.

“We believe that our 140-year history of building technology-leading, high performance tires is a great match with such a legend in the world of performance cars and racing. Continental recognizes Lingenfelter’s pursuit of excellence and that combined with our technology-driven products, is a powerful combination.”

In March of 2012, a Lingenfelter-tuned ZL1 Camaro, equipped with Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires, became the first to exceed 200 mph, hitting 202.67 mph at Continental’s Uvalde Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas.

“The Lingenfelter team has worked side-by-side with Continental Tire for several years and is our preferred tire brand. The synergies between our companies make this agreement the next logical step,” says Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “Continental’s performance-tire capabilities complement Lingenfelter’s performance-tuning expertise, which will help us get the most from our vehicles, on and off the track.”

Lingenfelter is based in Decatur, Ind. and is a globally recognized brand in the performance engineering industry.
