The very first tyre ever created, which only consisted of rubber that was fashioned into a hollow tube, was developed by a well-respected veterinarian and Scottish engineer in 1888, by the name of John Boyd Dunlop. Shortly after this time the life of Dunlop tyres began when the first business in the entire world that dealt with tyres was created. An air pump and some fabric were the only items that were used to hold the tyres that were produced onto the vehicle’s wheel.
In 1920, America’s first manufacturing factory that specialized in the making of motorcycle tyres was opened. To this very day, it is widely known as the United States only manufacturing company that produces tyres for motorbikes. There have been a large number of ingenious, ground breaking, and high quality products produced by the widely known Dunlop Company for more than 100 years.
Today, there are a large number of popular brands of motorbikes and automakers alike that use Dunlop tyres. To name a few of these includes the following:
There are also as many as 130 tyre designs that are regularly being produced by this world renowned company that manufactures tyres for buses and trucks.
In Hanover, Germany during the year 1871, the Continental tyres were first created. The main goal of the company was to produce and provide many types of industries with a wide range of rubber products such as carriage and bicycle tyres.
While it may be hard for many people of today to believe, the first tyre produced by this company was designed without any tread at all. This tyre later was placed on one of the Mercedes Benz newest models, and as they say ‘the rest is history’.
In today’s time, Continental tyres and Dunlop tyres alike are both well known for providing car and truck owners with a smooth ride, a high level of safety, and reliability that is hard to beat. There is a large amount of studies that each of these brands conduct to ensure the motorists’ safety is always an important factor that is addressed first.
Due to the tough standards that both Dunlop and Continental tyres must always meet, there are many consumers that continue to stand by the products that are delivered.
