Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I put on these tires in Texas as I do quite a few road trips up north and needed something with some flexibility. These tires were excellent overall. They do have some issues with ice, as do most A/S tires but very good grip for acceleration and braking. Very good, but not great, cornering as the sidewalls are rather soft. They do however communicate very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I autox an Rx-7 on a set of DW and loved them for driving to and from (and that includes racing on them) the event. Now saying that, I bought a set of DWS for my Legacy and do enjoy taking turns with some speed behind it to enjoy the thrill on the streets. I don't brake hard or accelerate hard at all just enjoy turning faster then others. I rotate my own...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I got these tires as warranty replacements for noisy Contiprocontacts that where loosing chunks or rubber on the shoulders at 500 miles. The Contipurecontacts offer great grip on dry surfaces and really grab on to the corners, they are firm, but bumps or potholes are absorbed without much jarring or shock. The one quality of these tires that I find...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I've had these tires through highway/city, pot holes, heavy rain, and they've performed great so far. They were replacing the OE Dunlop SP SPORT 7000 A/S which lasted almost 70k but were definitely due. By comparison I can say that even vs the Dunlops when new these Contys make less noise and ride much better especially when the roads get rough. What sold me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

If you drive on all-season tires, by definition, you must accept some compromises. That said, these are an excellent option with very little compromising. Excellent dry and wet traction, very quiet, solid snow traction. I replaced at about 40,000 miles; there was still plenty of tread depth for dry conditions and maybe even wet, but living in northeast we...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

I've only got 2500 miles on this tire, but I'm very impressed with the ride comfort and noise level. These are very quiet and very comfortable. They absorb most small road vibrations and rough surfaces (like small rocks and gravel)they are very quiet. I'd have to say they are the quietest tire you could buy for a light truck or suv. The sidwalls are not very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I put the Continental Extreme Contact DW's on my 1993 corvette. These were the top-rated tire by TR and your competitors. These new tires replaced the original Goodyear GS-C run flats that came with the car (yes, the car's factory set of tires). I am the 2nd owner of the vette and the car only had 33,000 miles on it. The Goodyears road like bricks with every...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Approaching 42000 miles on this set, and ready to repurchase. Was turned onto this tire 3 years ago by another Genesis owner. Car would not go at all with original high-perfomance tires. Originals rode great, performed great, but only lasted 25,000 miles. Now at 67000 on Genesis. Torn between new tires or new Genesis with all-wheel drive on the 2015 model....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought a set of these for my daughter's car in December, 2011. Have worn evenly and been great tires. As the father of a teenage daughter, driving for 7-8 hours alone to see a boyfriend 3 states away during the winter, I'm awfully glad that she had these tires combined with the VW 4Motion system. She never had a single problem and she rarely checks her tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I've just bought these tires as replacements for the OEM Continental run flat tires on my MINI Cooper S. I did the research and found that there were multiple independent reviews of this tire that were very complimentary. Motor Trend and Autoweek were among them. So I felt comfortable buying these tires as a suitable replacement for the OEM tires. I also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Posts on miata.net suggested this tire was not a 'performance' tire and the Miata might like a more responsive tire. Rudy confirmed this assessment. Since I have moved well into senior citizen territory the quick turn-in, more 'rigid' ride, etc. attributes I wanted in a tire a few years ago are no longer on my tire wish list.So, do I like these tires, yep,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I had OEM Continental tires which worn out completely in the middle after about 30K miles. Then I researched from Tirerack.com and purchased these Conti DWS. What a difference!! My C300 is a sport model but it completely became a luxury model. So quite and soft, yet it handles really really well (always handled well before). Felt like a totally new car. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

Ride: 2010 Ford Flex Limited 255/45R20. Came from a Goodyear Eagle RS-A.These were my second option because the Continental Extreme Contact DWS were back ordered. My first thought on these BFG's were that they were quite noisy. To a point where i had to turn up the radio system's Speed Compensator Volume to max, and it still doesn't quite drown out the noise...  Read More

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

First of all mt truck has 20 wheels. The first set would not balance, didn't know if it was PB or the tire. After having them balanced and rebalanced about 8 times because of the excessive vibration at highway speeds (70+) Finally they determined one or all were out of round so they replaced all 4. After the new 4 they were smooth as glass. Keep in mind all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I'm located in Upstate NY region so decided to go with a winter tire for this car since I drive about 30 miles a day for work. Have had these tires on for one full winter season and half of the current winter season where we got a significant amount of snow. Treadwear is excellent up to this point (5-6k miles). Done a few winter highway trips and these tires...  Read More

It is the Most Traction....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

while I only have about 100 miles on these, replacing my 20 inch Toyo Proxes 4 Plus A all seasons, these made my S4 feel like a totally different car. The ride quality has improved very noticeably, easier on bumps and rough roads, less noise by far, great steering responsiveness, and look great too...no chance yet in deep snow or ice but will post another...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Signature (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I just ordered by second set of these tires for my Cayenne. All other tires for my high performance SUV cost at least double the cost of these and many of them perform much worse. I have almost 150k miles on my Cayenne. I have purchased Porsche NXX OEM tires, Pirelli, Michelin, and Continentals during the time I have owned this SUV. I drive a 911 during the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've just logged 52K miles on this set and no other tire has performed this well. I'm about to buy another set, but hear it is being discontinued. I'm hesitant to try anything else and even willing to stock up on a couple extras, just in case of road hazards.   Read More
