Continental, the premium-quality tire producer, offered a real highlight by raising a giant inflatable 8 x 8 x 2.70-meter “TractorMaster” tire along the stage route in Lortet, France.

Continental and its agricultural tires
Continental has been back in the agricultural business as of 2017, and since then brought some 100 articles to market. “The TractorMaster tire is especially popular among farmers, which is why we chose this product line as our inflatable eye-catcher. Farmers can rely on the robust build, long durability and high mileage of our TractorMaster agricultural tires in any weather and on any soil,” says Benjamin Hübner, Product Line Manager for Agricultural Tires at Continental. A 2019 test series by the German Agricultural Society (DLG for short) proved the tire’s performance, fuel consumption, ground coverage and drive efficiency, certifying its premium quality with the DLG test mark.
