Tread wear indicators provide information about the tyre's condition and indicate when the tread no longer meets the minimum depth. Furthermore, Continental has announced eight new tyre sizes, which will be available in the second quarter of 2024.

The ContiPT18 solid tyre is known for its performance and energy efficiency. Used primarily in intralogistics, the product line is designed for indoor and outdoor use on any surface and is suitable for the highest demands and applications in three-shift operation.


The new tread wear indicator can be seen on both sidewalls of the tire, making it quicker and easier to determine the right time to change a tire. This can reduce overall operating costs by maximising tire utilisation and contribute to greater sustainability. 


“With the new ContiPT18, we have developed a tire that not only offers outstanding performance and energy efficiency but also contributes to greater operating safety and efficiency,” says Matthias-Stephan Müller, Product Manager for Material Handling Tires at Continental Specialty Tires. All ContiPT18 tires are also available in non-marking versions.

The ContiPT18 offers maximum performance thanks to its two-stage design. Müller: “Thanks to the modern tire compounds we use, heat generation is low while wear resistance is high.” This results in high mileage combined with low rolling resistance. The tread provides grip and optimised transmission of lateral forces, even with heavy loads.


In addition to the standard sizes, the following articles can be purchased from Q2 2024:
