On Friday May 6, 2011, some seven years after first launching its SSR run-flat technology, Continental produced its ten millionth run-flat tire. The milestone tire was produced at the company’s passenger tire plant in Aachen, Germany – one of three million run-flats expected to be produced this year at the factory, which can produce a total of nine million passenger car tires per year, with a focus on high-end, specialized tires including high performance and ultrahigh performance. The SSR run-flat tires produced in Aachen are supplied to numerous OEM customers, including BMW, Ford Mercedes-Benz, Mini and Volvo.
