Unfortunately, it has been out of stock in many sizes this summer. So what do you do if the Super Sport has an indefinite backorder in your size? It depends on why you wanted...  Read More

Continental ExtremeContact DWS Replaced by ExtremeContact DWS 06

Since its introduction six years ago, the Continental ExtremeContact DWS has topped our customer survey data in the Ultra High Performance All-Season category. Its best-in-class snow traction, along with good wet traction and wear has made it the go-to tire for many drivers in the Snow Belt who need more snow traction out of their performance all-season...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I have had this set of winter tires for three years now. I would absolutely recommend this tire to anyone, I have never been stuck in any amount of snow, can stop and start almost as well as in the summer and the response time is fantastic. I researched all tires on this site but thins one rated better on everything, and it was no lie. I couldn't be happier...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been completely satified with these tires!!! My Lincoln LS V8 is rear wheel drive, which proves it's own challenges in winter driving. I live in NW Ohio, and suffered a very hard winter last year. I was commuting 130 miles/day for work,,, sometimes through 6 inches of snow... and a couple times on ice!!! With those conditions I never felt as though...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I have never owned a set of snow tires. We just had a storm here in NJ; I cannot believe a set of tires could provide such a high level of confidence and reassurance! My RWD 128 I Sport moved through ice and snow with impunity. The car literally feels glued to the hard packed icy road. The tires communicate the level of traction; you no longer have that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

These are very good tires. They are outstanding in the dry and very good in the wet. Very stable and very good steering response. I track my car with Dunlop Direzza ZII ultra high performance tires I put on for that purpose only, and I can say the Eagle F1's 80-90% of that tire in terms of grip. Which is saying a lot because the Direzzas are almost racing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

The set of four Continental Pure Contacts I purchased for my 2012 Honda Accord was one of the best decisions I have made. These tires provide a good, comfortable ride and the car handles quite nicely. The real test has been the last couple of months in snow country, which was my primary focus when buying these tires. In the snow, these tires perform very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

We put these on our 2007 Dodge Nitro, and so far have 2000 miles of winter driving on them. They're quiet and comfortable on the highway, with great traction on dry, wet, or snowy roads. We've driven through unplowed roads in 2WD that used to make the old tires spin in 4WD. The traction control and the ABS rarely engage now. Excellent tires...would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Bought these to replace OEM Continental Run Flat tires. 4500 miles later all is good. Have driven car with these tires on dry, wet, snow covered and icy roads. Of course, in adverse road conditions (ice, snow), due diligence is in order. No complaints on them as of yet, and they much quieter on the interstate than the OEM tires. Yes, I will probably buy them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I am in Western Canada, and so the winter tire aspect was very important to me. These are great tires 3/4 seasons...but they are not a good substitute for winter tires. The problem comes back to temperature: they freeze up below freezing like all other all-seasons. If you are in a warmer climate that may get snow once in a while (i.e Vancouver, Pacific...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The absolute best tire out, period! Vehicle has 18's and H&R suspension: These tires feel planted on the road almost like I'm on train tracks. Handling/braking is excellent (stiff outer shoulder). Comfortable tire when new. Only problem is they're not suited for a daily driver unless you do not mind buying these every 5-6 months- Tread wear count seems lower...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Just bought my 3rd set of these conties. The performance and comfort is the best I have ever experienced and I have driven for 35 yrs on many different types of tires on many different vehicles. The value of these tires is incredible. I would not buy any other type of summer tire for this car. It is fun to drive a car the way it was designed to be driven and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These tires were the original tires on my TDI Sportwagen, which now has about 46,000 miles on the clock. They are about ready for replacement. I have been very pleased with their balance of ride comfort and handling. I don't drive much near the limit anymore, but I am still sensitive to on-center steering feel and response. The steering feel, linearity of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

My OEM Continental ContiProContact SSR tires felt hard, especially when I hit bumps or potholes. I honestly dreaded hitting these, and when I did, the entire car felt like I had hit a huge boulder in the road. So, I was desperate to find a softer feel run flat tire. The new DriveGuards had just come out, so I decided to buy them. I am EXTREMELY impressed !!!...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Great tires! Mazda 3's with a manual transmission are known to wheel hop when accelerating from a stop on a wet surface, but that all goes away with these tires. Still have 7-8/32 on the front and 8-9/32 on the rear. Will definitely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Update. I now have over 5000 miles and I am very impressed. Wet traction and control is right on par with my beloved discontinued Michelin Pilot Exalto AS. Very quiet compared to oem junk. Dry handling and braking is excellent. Have not driven in snow yet. But based on wet handling I am hoping they will be adequate. Overall a great tire for the money. I...  Read More
