Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These came OEM on our Range Rover. We now have 30k miles on them. I say buy them.Pros: Long wearing; handled snowmagedon in Atlanta a few years ago with aplomb. After the entire city was experiencing pandemonium these tires seemed nearly heroic in the light snow and VERY icy conditions. I drove up my steep paved driveway that was covered in snow and ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the runflat tires on my car with these. Never looked back. It's quite good improvement compared to the old version and that one was already very good. This one has great traction in all sorts of conditions dry, wet, snow, ice. Cornering stability is a bit weak, but not sure if that's due to my heavy car or the tire. It's noisy on concrete, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

We have the 50MPG Cruze diesel and drive about 100 miles min rt to work everyday. I have always done my homework when buying tires so rarely am I surprised at the results I receive and I have been driving for almost 40 years. These are quite possibly the best tires I have ever owned. The car came with Goodyears as OEM and they were good tires. We got 60K...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Awesome tires, would definitely buy them again. If you live in snow these are the tires to buy. For the money you're getting every bit of traction for your dollar. I live in Minnesota and drive very spirited these handle in snow and dry and rain with no problem. They're a little too loud on the road and not very soft but I can only expect so much.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is simply a great tire! Very low road noise, excellent wet holding and resistance to hydroplaning-this matter greatly during FL thunderstorms while driving 75-80 mph. Solid cornering without drama, very sure-footed braking. I think probably the best tires I've owned, would certainly buy them again and again. No complaints whatsoever, so much better than...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I usually buy Michelin tires, but this is my first set of Continentals. So far I have found these tires meet all of my criteria. Extremely good handling in both wet and dry conditions. They are very quiet. Very good braking performance. Competitively priced. Does it sound I'm happy with this choice - yes I am! I will update the review, including wear factors...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

We bought a set of 4 tires for our 2003 Honda Odyssey to replace 4 Michelin high-quality tires that would not balance. Once we put the Continentals on, it was like driving a different minivan!!! Very smooth, quiet, secure ride on both the local roads and highway. It is now a pleasure to ride. For the tires' first 1000 miles, my wife drove to Cincinnati, OH...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Very happy with these tires. They replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE 70's. The Bridgestones were very noisy, hard riding and wore out in under 20k miles of average driving.Within days of buying the DWS-06's, we drove from Connecticut to Florida and I was very happy I made the change before we left. I went from a car that sounded like it had a bad wheel bearing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These came with my used MDX with 10,000 miles. The ride is very harsh but I'm not sure if it is the tires or suspension since this is my first MDX. Highway driving is smooth seem to grip the road nicely. City is hard ride but still firm road grip even cornering is good. Pressure is 35 so not sure if that makes the tire ride firmly and harshly at the same...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I have had these tires on my 2015 Lexus GS for the last 5500 miles. And I have to say I'm very impressed so far. The tires handle very well on dry roads, are quite, and instill quite a bit of confidence on the highway. This past week we have had quite a bit of rain in the Dallas area, giving me a chance to test the tires in wet and heavy rain conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Absolutely the best set of tires I've ever owned. The run flat tires that came standard on my Civic lasted less than 25k, and were utterly useless for traction on dry pavement, much less wet, or heaven forbid, snowy or icy road surfaces. After a lot of research, I settled on this tire, and am absolutely thrilled. At their current rate of wear, I should be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires have given my Cooper new life. Had Continental RF OEM. They were hard as rocks. Awful. The car was responsive but I could feel a twig on the road. These tires are still responsive and have effectively handled snowmageddon,the Maryland winter, like a pro. I should have bought an entire second set just to store and keep for when the original set...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

The tires are the originals. I rotate them once to twice a year and keep the tire pressure as close to specs as possible. I have over 53 thousand miles on them and will get better than one more year out of them. I don't see why some of the reviews are so negative, other than the individuals like to drive fast and brake hard. I may consider buying them again...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I drive 90 miles a day to work and these tires have been great. They have held great in spirited exit ramps and provide good traction in rain and snow. The only time they loose traction in rain is higher RPM in first gear while crossing painted lines, they are quieter than the tires that came on my car but not as quiet as I had hoped. I found them on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires as a replacement for the Goodyear Eagle RS-As that were on the car previously. I tend to drive gently and sit in traffic most days...I need a quiet, smooth tire with good traction for less than 70MPH situations. This General Tire has filled the purpose so well, at such an affordable price ($110/tire) that I am BEYOND THRILLED! I'm so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I purchased this tire to replace the stock Continental touring tire. I am so glad that I did. A month after purchasing these tires I drove 1600 miles from southern California through the Sierra mountains, across the Nevada desert and then over the Rockies into Denver. They worked perfectly. Low noise at hwy speeds. They handled the windy mountain roads like...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There’s no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires. However, if you reside in an area that receives only light snow and an all-season tire is all you need, how that tire performs during the winter months is typically the deciding factor when purchasing your replacement...  Read More

Testing the New Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+

Not long ago, Michelin introduced the Pilot Sport A/S 3 Ultra High Performance All-Season tire as a direct replacement for the popular Pilot Sport A/S Plus. We wrote about the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus in our post, "Which Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires Should I Buy?" Like its predecessor, the Pilot Sport A/S 3 had a noticeable advantage in...  Read More

Best Replacement Tires for Mazda CX-7

The CX-7 was introduced in 2007 as Mazda's mid-size SUV. After a five-year run, it was replaced by the CX-5. Being larger than a compact SUV, and yet smaller than the mid-size offerings, it hoped to find the sweet spot in between. With only a mild update in 2010, we most commonly see tire size 235/60R18 outfitted on the Mazda CX-7.  Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 Pirell...  Read More
