The wrap on Continental’s custom LoneStar

| March 21, 2013

Continental Tire 2010 International LoneStarContinental Tire’s 2010 International LoneStar got a makeover this past December, says company rep Alex Chmiel, with the Chrome Shop Mafia folks at 4 State Trucks in Joplin, Mo., putting a carbon-fiber wrap on most exterior surfaces, blacking out most of the chrome and adding Continental yellow accents. It was a good time for it, given the company’s brand-new road-show trailer showcasing Continental’s new- and retread-tire tools for customer owner-operators to manage the entire life cycle of the casings.

You can check out their tire-selection tools and costs calculators via their truck-tires website as well as in the trailer at the Mid-America Trucking Show (Booth #18252), starting today and running through March 23 in Louisville, Ky. And if you missed their news from yesterday, follow this link for more about a new tire, pressure monitoring system and more from the company.

Chmiel gives Overdrive readers a video run through the new trailer in the video below as well.
