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

Fantastic tires. I always buy my tires from Tire Rack and review and compare tire specs before buying. Living in northern Ohio, handling in snow and rain is very important, which was one of the appeals of these tires. I bought the Continentals to replace the dealer installed tires. I've put a lot of miles on these tires, as I travel around the state for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These are the 2nd set of Extreme Continentals I've purchased. This tire is the best buck for your $! The ONLY complaint I have is the treadwear. I'm no speed demon, but my BMW is rear wheel drive and it seems that these tires installed on rear wheel drive cars tend to wear out very fast. Both my rear tires wore down to the bone by 15,000 miles but the 2...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

These tires have pretty much solved my issues with the last tires. Directional stability, cornering, comfortable ride and noise level are well beyond my expectations. I haven't tried them in the snow yet and in Milwaukee that is a big consideration. I will buy again and highly recommend for others to buy them.   Read More

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

These tires are working great on my Subaru Tribeca 2010. When they were installed two years ago it felt like I've got a new car or at least seriously upgraded the one I had. I'm living in NJ suburban area near New York City. Fuel economy went up from average 17.1 mpg to 18.5 mpg, tires are difinitely quiter, have better traction in wet conditions, snow and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Put on a new set of Michelin Primacy and our Volvo had ride problems with brand new Sachs Super Touring shocks. Tried Altimax RT43 and was better, but still a bit too harsh over RR tracks and potholes. Put on these True Contacts and the car rides well again, tough to do with the stiff V70/Sachs suspension. Traction both wet and dry is what one expects from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I have been driving for over 50 years now with many, many different cars and tires. These Pirelli P7 Cintauratos are the quietest best riding tire I have ever experienced. My Eclipse is fun to drive again and is even quiet with the top up. Just got rid of a set of Continental DSW's that were extremely loud. I will definitely buy for my Buick LaCrosse when it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I purchased the Bridgestone Driveguard tires in fall 2014 to replace the OEM Continental's. While there are only 9k miles on the tires, they are wearing well, noise levels are relatively quiet (for RFTs), and handling is comparable to the OEM tires. I would definitely consider buying these tires again.   Read More

What to Buy When the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is Backordered

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is an outstanding tire. It combines top-tier wet and dry traction with responsive handling, making it a benchmark in the Max Performance Summer category. 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

The Best Tire Choice for Your Mazda 3

As far as options go in the compact car segment, the Mazda 3 offers a competitive package that is more visually pleasing than some of its rivals and is also a fairly pleasurable car to drive. While it certainly will not set any track records, the car has many strengths that make it a popular choice among consumers on the road today. Due to the high...  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
