General Tires

The General Tire brand was born on September 29, 1915, when two Akron, Ohio businessmen founded the General Tire and Rubber Company. During the next decades, General Tire revolutionized tire manufacturing with the invention of the low pressure General Balloon Jumbos followed by further inventions like carbon black latex, oil-extended rubber and Gen-tech adhesive for tire cord. In 1987, Continental AG purchased the tire division General Tire, Inc., later reformed as Continental Tire North America, Inc. and with this acquisition became the fourth largest tire manufacturer in the world. In today's market the General Tire products are best known for tough, durable and high-value tires on passenger cars, pickup trucks and commercial vehicles.
