Good tires at attractive prices. This is how the Czech constructer Barum sums up what it calls a "smart philosophy" that it has been following during its sixty years of existence. This manufacturer's history and professional path are at least atypical on the tire market. This company, well respected in Europe for its all season, safe and resistant tires, mixes three different know-how. Barum likes to do things itself. It conceives, transports and distributes its tires. In the Otrokovice factory, the engineers have understood that a tire must not only meet the traditional standards, like precision and endurance, but they must also offer comfort to drivers. The recent model, Bravuris is the best proof that this constructer keeps its word. Barum, which has mergered with Continental A.G. in 1992, intends to develop more its high speed tires. In the meanwhile, this manufacturer has fun every year at the Barum Rally, that the company has been hosting ever since 1971.
