Continental plays role in World Cup

June 8, 2006

Coaches used to transport World Cup teams will use Continental HSL1 steer axle tires.

"Based technically on (Continental's) HSL1 steer-axle tire, the 295/80R22.5 HSL1 coach tire sports stylized (soccer) emblems and distinctive, yellow Continental logos molded into the sidewalls," say Continental officials.

The 2006 World Cup starts tomorrow in Germany.
