Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has agreed to equip all of its Lingenfelter vehicles with Continental tires. As the official tire of the tuning company, Continental’s line of performance passenger, light truck and SUV tires, including the ExtremeContact line of tires, will be featured on all vehicles that roll out of the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering shop, including Lingenfelter Signature Series cars and trucks, show cars, street rods and race vehicles.
“The Lingenfelter team has worked side-by-side with Continental Tire for several years and is our preferred tire brand. The synergies between our companies make this agreement the next logical step,” said Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “Continental’s performance-tire capabilities complement Lingenfelter’s performance-tuning expertise, which will help us get the most from our vehicles, on and off the track.”
In March of 2012, a Lingenfelter-tuned ZL1 Camaro, equipped with Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires, became the first to exceed 200mph, hitting 202.67mph at Continental’s Uvalde Proving Ground in Uvalde, Texas, USA.
“Lingenfelter is known for its performance tuning expertise and it’s an honor to be aligned with such a noteworthy brand,” said Tony Talbert, tuning key account manager for Continental Tire. “We believe that our 140-year history of building high performance tires is a great match with such a legend in the world of performance cars and racing.”
