Digital Tire Monitoring

Continental’s Intelligent Tire


Step Into the Future with Digital Tire Monitoring

Continental's intelligent tire comes complete with a pre-mounted tire sensor, which constantly monitors the pressure and temperature of the tire and transmits the information to any of our receiver systems.

Take a step into the future of tire management with Continental's intelligent tire. 

  • Accurate tire pressure and temperature readings to prevent tire damage and breakdowns
  • Sensor lasts up to 6 years / 400,000 miles to minimize disruptions to your tire program
  • Provides true tire casing temperature, allowing preventive actions that make your tire last longer
  • Avoids valve damage and air leaks by mounting on the inner liner of the tire 

A tire-mounted sensor is attached to the inner liner of the tire. This position delivers significant benefits:

  • Protects the sensor from damage from curbing, road debris, etc.
  • Avoids theft
  • Eliminates the need for a metal clamp
  • Will not be damaged during tire mounting or dismounting
  • Delivers true tire pressure data via measurement, rather than calculating via an algorithm
  • Delivers true tire casing temperature, without influence of heat from braking system

Continental tires can be ordered as intelligent tires directly from the factory, pre-equipped with tire-mounted sensors. The sensors can also be retrofitted into existing dismounted tires. All of Continental’s digital tire monitoring solutions rely on tire-mounted sensors, due to the inherent benefits of this mounting position.

Valve-mounted sensors are often inexpensive and easy to install, but fleets may find the sensors can be damaged by curbing, and in some cases even see them causing tire failure if the valve stem is torn during the event.

It is important to note that tire temperature, one of the key measures to avoid permanent tire damage, is not measured by valve-mounted systems, but rather calculated via an algorithm, which in some cases can lead to inaccurate results.


Wheel-mounted, also called rim-mounted, sensors are attached to the wheel using a metal clamp. While protected from damage caused by curbing, this type of sensor may be damaged during the tire mounting or dismounting process.

In addition, the metal band attaching the sensor to the rim receives heat as the wheel turns, causing expansion and contraction of the clamp. After a period of time, the clamp may loosen and allow the sensor to spin around the rim, causing damage.

In terms of measuring temperature, the sensor can be influenced by heat from the vehicle’s braking system, in which case it would not deliver accurate tire temperature data.


Benefits of TPMS

Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) from Continental deliver operational benefits to your fleet, such as reducing downtime and saving money. 

Properly inflated tires can reduce total tire-related costs by $600 to $800 annually per vehicle.

On average, 1 in every 3 tires at a commercial fleet is underinflated. Digital tire monitoring solutions will help you:

  • Improve Tire Runout
  • Minimize Irregular Tire Wear 
  • Save Fuel 
  • Save Labor & Maintenance Costs 
  • Reduce Roadside Breakdowns 
  • Improve Safety

Ordering Intelligent Tires

Any tire that Continental offers in the U.S. and Canada can be ordered as an intelligent tire.
