Initial Review, 5,000 Miles on Tires
January 08, 2013

Bought these as a summer only tire and looking for a quicker steering reaction than the previous Conti Extreme Contact DW. These definitely fit the criteria. The downside, as anticipated, is a less compliant ride. Tires transmit more harshness from less than perfect road surfaces, maybe due to the sidewall stiffness that provides the response. No issues yet in the dry, pretty good in the wet with predictable behavior so far. Wear seems to be acceptable although, as with other staggered fitments on my BMWs, the rear tires wear the center of the tread quicker than the edges, and it is NOT due to overinflation.

It will be interesting to watch the tread wear next summer. With about 5k miles on then, the tread is around 8.5-9/32" on front and rear tires.

Initial Review, 7,000 Miles on Tires
July 30, 2014

Bought these to replace my "m" spec'd continentals that I swore lasted at best 8,000 miles. Great tire for dry traction, decent for rain but the tread life on these tires were even worse than the continentals, (7,000 miles) Now it's just the rears I'm talking about the fronts are still at 50%. This car is driven by my wife and is driven very easy so I can't blame the driving style. In the end I bought 2 rears yesterday because I wouldn't buy miss matched tires so I think I'll get another 8,000 out of the fronts and by then these super sports will need replaced again. I do think M3's eat rear tires thou. I'm looking to replace my viper tires soon and will more than likely go with super sports also.
