Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
December 27, 2013

SO I live in Wisconsin and I self admit I am a terrible winter driver in my own opinion. The problem is that I have a 55 mile drive one way to work each day so 110 mile trek. In the past Ive gone no snow tires and its been scary many nights on the drive hom.

Now I have a Jeep Compass with 4WD and with the stock tires last year they didn't do too bad, but there was still some scary days. So this season I decided to grab a pair of these Altimax Arctics after much research on here and online in general.

COULD NOT GO WRONG with a purchase of these tires. First, things I were afraid of is the talk of control on dry pavement, road noise because they are snow tires, cornering etc. Now I wouldn't say im a tire enthusiast, and I am not super picky, but these tires are great here. Noise was quieter than the stock all season by FAR, and control and cornering were better as well which suprises me for a snow tire.

Now to control. Its snowed where i am about 18 days of the 27 so far in December. These things are beasts! We've had some light super slippery powder snow and these did not miss. Sure there a few times was a little slip from a stand still, but its remarkable how they dig through. I put them through the paces, pushing hard, sharp turning in 3-4 inches and light powder etc, very good extreme traction. We had some ice days, shockingly though I drove conservative, no issues. So the other night, we had more slipper powder, I found the sharpest grade hill in our city...pretty steep, decided to try it, about a quarter mile stretch...NO ISSUES! Couldn't believe it.

All the above all our other vehicles struggle big time with and tires spin. But not these. At my kids school, parents were getting stuck in parking, not these.

If you have a 4WD vehicle, matched with these, its a snow bobcat now. WIth my conservative driving and these, I feel a lot less stressed.

Purchase from tire rack was smooth and great and got free install based on deal!

The winters in Jersey are hit or miss. And usually I have to commute to work before the plows are out.

These tires have completely removed all anxiety from driving in the snow. A lot of the time I gotta check myself from driving too fast because these tires make you feel invincible. The difference between the Generals and my "all season" tires is night and day.

Nothing better than passing a 4wd SUV or truck spinning their tires, going nowhere.
The only issue I noticed is a lot of road noise when its dry out. But for the few months out of the year they are on the car its really a non-issue.

Bought those to replace factory's Continental's.
Pros: about $100 of savings for a 4-set, good ride quality, noise is acceptable, good handling and responsiveness.
Cons: terrible on light slow or ice relative to competitors, wears off quickly (30K miles for me, though I'm a spirited driver).
After those I bought a set of Michelin Primacy MXV4 which was $150 more but with snow / ice performance dramatically improved and lasted 45K miles instead of 30K - the Micheline turned to be cheaper per mile plus additional winter safety.
Now I ordered Pirelli Cinturato P7 - will see if those are any better.

Since I have put these tires on the weather in Michigan has been BRUTAL . extreme cold , deep snow , ice .. everything you can think of . Now back to wet right around freezy temp . I am blown away by the performance of these tires & I have had them on various vehicles for 10 + years . Maybe 4 + sets on trucks , SUV's etc . Yes the Audi has AWD but it is not true AWD it is Torsen . Anyway I have a slight slope on my drive maybe 20* . Tonight I stop on the max slope on a frozen patch Complete ice ) to see what happens driving up hill . Zip ... no problem right into the garage .. not even traction control comes on . Then early this week we get 18 " in 2 days . Plow guy truck breaks , I back right out turn around & gone , no lie . Get em they are worth every penny & fairly quiet also .

Good looking tire when new but on a 4x4 they wear very fast on dry pavement. At 22000
they are gone, unsafe to use. I have gone thru 2 sets worth of stump pulling and off roading with these but it's time to step up to a better quality tire.
On wet pavement I can overpower them easily and with ABS in use they keep your attention glued to the windshield. Don't even attempt to stop short with these!

Replaced noisy, hard riding Potenzas (25% tread life left) with these, and now have these on our other 2 Audis (A4 models), too. Am enjoying much quieter, smoother ride... glad to be back in Contis again for my car, just in time for winter driving. Look forward to seeing how many miles I can get on these PureContacts, as all our other Continental tire models have given us good tread life, smooth and quiet performance in all weather conditions. For our driving needs there is not a better tire for the price.

Great purchase in terms of total cost (tires and rims). I drive 110 miles round trip per day (mixed highway & street) to work. These tires are the difference between being off the road in a ditch (calling AAA for roadside assistance) and motoring down the highway while others sturggle to make progress in poor conditions. As for the last 6 weeks we have had 60 to minus 5 degree weather and two significant snow storms. The first snow storm I took to the the road with these tires and was impressed with my ability to climb hills, corner, stop and plow through drifts. The best part was when I came home to a 20 plus inch snowbank at the end of the driveway and hit it at a reasonable speed breaking through without even slowing down (snow fying cover the hood, windshield and roof). The wife commented "please do not hit the garage door", and we came to a dead stop 6 feet away like we were on dry pavement in 10 inches of snow. I knew then and there these tires were excellent. My other car is an Audi A4 with winter Nokians, and these Pirelli's are on par in terms of performance (except for slight increasee in road noise, and this very likely a funnction of the sound dampening material betweeen a Fiat & an Audi, along with the size of the vehicles). Overall, great tires, I feel safe and in control when I hit the street, and look forward to taking on the winter conditions without a worry.

Best money I ever spent. I used to have to park my mustang (v8 stick shift posi rwd) in the winters and bum rides. I literally feel more secure in snow in my mustang with these tires than in my girlfriends 4x4 envoy with all seasons. I live in michigan winters are brutal. When there is a good amount of snow I feel confident driving aggressively. The best part is braking, no more sliding in the snow when trying to stop. I didn't add weight to my at either cuz I heard it could make a spin out worse. Never ever buying any other winter tire paying more for michelin is worth it. I honestly look forward to snow now, and enjoy the crazy looks I get when people see me driving like its summer, they have no idea I'm in complete control. Love them love them love them. I couldn't imagine how it woul feel to have these on a 4x4 wow that's be something. Thank you michelin for making me able to enjoy my mustang year round

Wanted to wait a little to review these, so far, about 1,500 miles on them. Love them. Was running the Conti DWS's. I really wanna say these have a stiffer sidewall, they corner A LOT better, and the ride is a lot quieter. Plowed down a 4ft snowbank during the last snowstorm NY saw, helped get a Hyundia out of that snowbank. Had no problem driving in a foot-foot and half of snow. Awesome tire. Looking forward to trying them out during AutoX this summer.

I drive a 4 inch lifted Jeep Liberty with aftermarket bumpers etc, so lots of extra weight. The Duratracs have been an excellent all around tire. They are fantastic in snow, do everything well except deep mud, but then they are not a mud tire. Wear has been great, installed at 129,000 miles now have 195,000 miles. As long as you keep the air pressure checked and rotated every 4,000 miles they wear really well. I would and do recommend these to everyone.

have a 2012 fiat sport equipped it with this tire now. Really impressed with the tires. Pittsburgh driving and its been below freezing with a few inches and have had total satisfaction.
Grew up in NY and have never had a 4x4 for snow, all you need is good tires.
Spend the $$ and make yourself safe.
Additional note: all I see here is Subaru's in ditches with all-season tires on them.
The tires make the car!

I bought this tire to replace the OEM Generals which rotted out after 6 years. I cannot say enough positive things about this tire. They hold the road really well in dry and wet weather. They are quiet and smooth riding. This past winter, we had over 52 inches of snow within a week. Once the roads were somewhat plowed down to about 6 inches, I ventured out and never once did I get stuck or lost traction. My front wheel drive Escape drove like a 4X4. These tires hold air really well and after 13,000 miles of driving, still look new without much wear. If you own a Ford Escape, you cannot go wrong with this tire. I know I will easily get 50,000 miles out of them.

I purchased these tires to replace the Bridgestones on the truck when I bought it. It got to be a real pain blowing out the thin sidewalls on the Bridgestones every time they rubbed up against an exposed root or rock on some of the country roads I frequent. The ride quality got a little rougher from moving up to the load range d tires, but stability has greatly improved. I do a fair amount of driving through soft ground ( yup, in a 2WD truck ) and have thus far motored right on through up to 8" deep mud with nary a slip or slide. We don't see much snow and ice this far south and I have no intention on driving north far enough to just to try them out, but a trip to the beach is in the near future. I'll be going along with a 4X4 just in case, but the way these tires handle in the mud, it will interesting to see if the do as well in loose sand. I'd have gone with a set of Dunlop RVXT, but they're no longer available in any size I can use. A great big "SCREW YOU" to Goodyear for that. I'm thinking I'll put a lift on my Expedition now and put a set of these Pirelli's on it too. Tread wear has been pretty dadgum good too. I'm running 45 psi on a 5600 lb truck and have lost just about 1/32" tread in the 15K miles I've put on them. Dealing with Tire Rack is always a pleasure. Thanks for a great deal on a great set of tires.

I personally not just like, I love these tires. These are OEM (SP Sport Maxx A1-A A/S) on my G37 and I had ridden them in dry, wet, snow and ice. They grip really well in all conditions, not to say dry and snow traction are the same, of course, can't be. Consider this, one time my wife made it up a hill road covered in snow where 3 other vehicles in front of her couldn't, one of which was a 4x4 SUV spinning front and rear not being able to move forward. These tires are quiet and phenomenal at cornering. Hydroplaned only once at 70mph on a highway going over a strip of running water, but which tire wouldn't in such condition? I do rotate them regularly and check pressure at least once a month, or sooner if outside temperature changes noticeably.

January 07, 2014

While this is certainly a very early review, these tires have transformed my ML320. I have had Toyo Proxes tires on for about 63000 miles any while they were always comfortable and decent in dry conditions, they were poor in wet weather and simply lousy in snow. They do have an all season rating, but looking at the tread design should have pushed me to buy something else at the time. Well, I saved about $25 each tire at the time vs the Continental 4x4 tires that served my family well for 55000 miles. Unlike so many others, my experience with the Continentals was outstanding. I figured that I would wait until the Toyos to wear out and then change them. They won't wear out. My patience finally did.

I bought the Bridgestone Alenzas from the tire rack and had them mounted and road force balanced by a reputable family owned tire business here in Massachusetts. I also had them do a 4 wheel alignment. All I can say at this point is that I am amazed. The ride is supple and yet still firm, but never harsh. The ML tracks straight and true and the handling is supurb. I haven't heard a sound from the ABS system and they don't make a sound in tight, fast corners. Literally, it is like driving a new car. My family has owned this car since new and it has never driven quite like this. I'm estatic. I have about 127,800 miles on the ML320.

I'll report back after the winter when I have experienced more miles, road, and weather conditions.

Continental's PureContact with EcoPlus Technology vs. ContiProContact

Tuesday, July 9, 2013 by Gary Stanley

About ten years ago, Continental released the original ContiProContact. This tire competed well with the top Grand Touring All-Season tires of that day, including the Michelin MXV4 and Bridgestone's line of Turanza touring tires. These tires met the needs of drivers of a variety of vehicles from family sedans to crossovers. The Continental ContiProContact was also selected as Original Equipment on many luxury cars, such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series. 

Over the years, the ContiProContact began to fall behind newer tires with more advanced technology such as the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus and Michelin Primacy MXV4. For a comparison on these two newer designs, read "Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus Rises to the Top of the Grand Touring All-Season Tire Category." In response to the rapidly changing and competitive Grand Touring All-Season market, Continental introduced the PureContact with EcoPlus Technology.

The PureContact with EcoPlus Technology is quite a bit better than its predecessor. Advancements that Continental have made with this new design have paid off, as the tire is currently ranked number one in our customer survey results. It competes very well against the best tires in its category, while selling at a lower price in most sizes. This makes the tire a great value and outstanding choice for drivers looking for a blend of ride quality, all-season traction and long wear, while maintaining good levels of handling and steering response.

These tires replaced a set of half-worn Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 tires (I picked up a puncture in one of the PA3s and couldn't find a replacement, hence the half-worn). Compared to the PA3s, the Xi3s have similar wet weather grip and noticeably lower (but still acceptable for this type of tire) dry grip. Unfortunately, I can't comment on snow or ice performance because I never had a chance to try the Xi3s in the snow. The biggest difference was in dry weather feel - feedback was significantly muted with the Xi3s and there is also significant 'tread squirm' with the Xi3s. If I had to give each a subjective score relative to a summer tire (using a Goodyear Asymmetric as the reference summer tire), I would give the PA3s an 8 and the Xi3s a 4 - there really is a huge difference between the two. Ride comfort and noise levels are quite good with the Xi3s - a little better than the PA3s.

This tire is outstanding. Starting the 3rd season with them and they still drive like new. Very sure handling on dry and wet roads, and incredibly quiet. Very significant tread remaining, so wear does not appear to be a problem. These tires replaced the stock Goodyear Eagle LS-2's, which pale in comparison. They did not handle anywhere near as well, were loud, and wore to the point of needing replacement by 30,000 miles.

Bought these almost 1.5 years ago for my wife's Audi A6 Quattro AWD and it became an absolute tank in the snow. Nothing could stop it. Turn the traction control off and it just dominated the roads. Truly forged a path for plow trucks to follow in the February snow storm where New England saw upwards of 3 (THREE) feet of snow. I was beside myself with this tire being labeled as "All-Season". Props to Audi on their AWD powertrain and all that, but these tires just showed to up perform, and they did just that. The roads have dried up now and the ride is still very smooth. Our two kids (3.5 and 7mo) both pass out from the smoothness and quietness of the ride. Had a 4 wheel alignment done at the time of installation.
