machine  Reduces time and costs Better Uniformity  As a tubeless tire is mounted on

As a tubeless tire is mounted on a “single” piece rim, the tire beads are seated left and right side equally accurate on the rim

Better Balanceare seated left and right side equally accurate on the rim  As the bead seating

As the bead seating is more accurate, the whole tire and wheel assembly will be better balanced. This also assists with more even tread wear, and can benefit fuel consumption.

In order to further extend the service life, a truck tire which is marked “regroovable” can be regrooved.Recommendations - Regrooving (source: Technical Data Book) • All Continental tires on which regrooving is permitted

All Continental tires on which regrooving is permitted have on both sidewalls, in accordance with ECE regulation 54, the marking “REGROOVABLE

Regrooving should be carried out by an expert, in order to avoid premature failure as well as any reduction in the tire’s suitability for retreading

The best condition for regrooving is when the tread is worn down to 3mm

The tire must be checked to make sure the wear is even all round
