Continental expanded its commercial light truck tire portfolio with a new size of the 16-inch Conti LAR 3. The all-position tire performs well in the high scrub conditions faced by regional delivery drivers. 

The Conti LAR 3 is designed to withstand the rigors of regional routes and speeds of more than 90 mph under max load. In addition, its all-steel radial casing is optimized for retreadability, helping fleets discover their lowest overall driving cost.

Other features of the Conti LAR 3 include cut-and-chip resistant tread compounds to withstand high scrub conditions, optimal handling with a pattern engineered to minimize stone retention and maximize wet traction, and fuel efficiency coupled with industry leading mileage. The 10-ply radial provides increased load carrying capacity and puncture resistance and its all-steel construction delivers increased retreadability.

The Conti LAR 3 is now available in four sizes: LT215/85R16, LT225/75R16, LT235/85R16, and LT245/75R16..

Continental optimizes tire lifecycle management to deliver the Lowest Overall Driving Cost to fleets and become the preferred partner to our independent tire dealers. According to the company, Continental is currently one of the five largest brands in medium/heavy truck tires in the U.S. by market share.
