These tires replaced to OEM Goodyears. Overall these Continentals are quieter and far smoother riding. As we use Bridgestone Blizzaks in winter on this vehicle I cannot speak to how the Continentals perform in truly snowy conditions but overall they are an excellent tire and a good value. I'd definitely buy them again.

Rotated these tires once. My wife takes the car on long road trips and the wear seems to be pretty even. With the recent weather we have here, I would rate this tire as awesome in dry and wet traction. I can take on ramps and off ramps with confidence as the tires grip awesome in both dry and wet conditions. The tires will chirp off the line, especially in a turn, but just a chirp or two and youre off like a rocket. The stock Goodyear RS-2's that came on the car were complete garbage, but most factory tires are(they make them softer to quiet the ride down). Light snow is ok for an all season. Deep snow is ok, but snow tires should really be used for this. It was a tough call for me between this tire and the General Altimax HP, but this tire has a higher tread rating, and looks cooler too. Now that the G-max AS-03 came out, my next tire choice might be more difficult. But if you have a fwd Impala 3.5/3.9/ or the SS. I'd would tell you straight up-buy these tires, you wont be disapointed.

I had a different brand of winter tires on my previous car and noticed a difference in the noise and feel of them compared to my touring tires. You get used to it until you switch to your summer tires and that's when you notice the difference again. I decided to switch to the Michelin X-Ice Xi3 after reading reviews here. I couldn't be happier!!!

The Michelin X-Ice Xi3 tires have a very low noise level while maintaining comfort and traction in all types of driving. I reside in Cleveland, Ohio and this year was a great year to run winter tires. I just completed a 1,600 mile trip last week to the south. I left in the beginning of a snow storm in Ohio and drove through every different road condition in the first 200 miles as I headed south to warmer temperatures. There was ice, slush, snow, deep snow on an unplowed highway, to ice and freezing rain in West Virginia. When I left South Carolina heading north, I was in a heavy, persistent rain and had no traction issues at all. The tires' performance throughout the trip was remarkable. If you're looking for winter tires, buy these tires!

This is my first review of anything. I'm not big on doing reviews but I just had tell someone besides my wife and friends how good these tires are and what's even better is, 4-6" of snow expected tomorrow. Yehaaa!

I bought my 2012 Chevy Colorado Crew LT with the street package which came with the 18 inch option and so far i have 49000 miles and i still have 4/32 tread left and still rolling on so far traction is good for the tread depth. I will be replacing them soon. So far i have been very impressed with the wear and performance of these tires.

I am a transporter and today I am at the Firestone store having another set of Transforce A/T's installed on my truck. In the past 6 months I put 70,000 miles on the tires and they never once let me down with excellent traction in all weather conditions. I pull a 20ft trailer usually loaded with 7,000 lbs on it and they work great - quiet and smooth ride, safe and secure feeling when driving in snow/ice conditions. It is a great relief to not have to worry about rain, snow, ice and sand when driving is my job across the lower 48 states.

At 64k, I'm still debating whether to replace the tires !!!(still a decent amount of tread). Just like any stock tire I've owned, the noise level increased as the tires aged. Most of the wet, hydro & snow issues are more due to the "toy" size of my HHR (which I love for roominess & mpg's)

Excellent tire for street performance cars. It is a quiet tire with a smooth ride yet handles as well as many track tires. The break-away is predictable and forgiving. It isn't a drag radial but provides great straight line traction for a supercharged car with 612 horsepower to the tires. No complaints in any areas and definitely would buy again.

I have used three brands of snows, Pirelli, Blizzaks and these Michelins. I have these on a corporate Malibu. I drive a LOT of city and through the Colorado Rockies and across prairie. I need a tire that will handle in most every temperature and condition and give me good stopping and handling in the city. These tires get worked very hard, especially in the city with quick starts at lights. If you are a city driver you know you may have seconds to make a left and you will tailgate the lumbering Buick, SUV or Camry in front of you to get through.

I will say this is an outstanding tire. I watched the videos here on Tire Rack and I cannot disagree. I love the Pirelli's and this tire in particular. I really cannot tell them apart in my driving so it is subjective. However, the Michelin's are holding up well as I drive a lot in the winter. These tires stay on minimum six months a year.

I took the Malibu out with these in a real slushy snow and it was passable. Nothing does really well in the slush as you ride up on it. I took my other car with Blizzaks and no difference. However, these tires bite, ride and recover well. They are really superb on dry road and warm weather, too. This is what I really appreciate. A Malibu is not a performance car but I drive it pretty hard, chirp the wheels frequently and push the front wheel drive. The back and front stay well planted and predictable. In the worst snow and ice the tires give good grip and minimum sliding with quick recovery. That is all you can ask. If the wear is good I am actually playing with the idea of putting these or some Pirelli winters on my Mini Countryman all year. I kayak and have an idea these will be good in sand and small rock near the rivers. Since I am in Colorado you can actually hit snow 12 months of the year in the mountains.
This is a great all around tire that should meet most needs. You can try and pick minute differences in tires but you will not go wrong with these.

I absolutely love these tires. I have owned several large SUV's over the past 10 years and have never gotten more than 50,000 miles on a set of tires. These still had 7/32 of tread left at 87,000 mi and would have gone past 100,000 if I had not picked up a nail that caused me to replace all four so I have even tire size. Needles to say, I purchased another set of Bridgestone Dueler Alenzas. My drive home from the installer was dream as I had forgotten how great new tires feel.

There are so many better tires for a cheaper price than these. I would not recommend these to anyone. I blew 2 in a year, and now know to get another brand. Even looking at tread patterns from the Continental or General Tire's you can see they would be better for cheaper.

I have been pleased with the Pirelli Scorpion STR tires. They have worn very well and I have not had any issues with them. I have several puncture repairs though so I recently replaced the Pirelli's with Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus tires. The Bridegestones have a better ride, but only time will tell if these wear as well as the Pirelli's did.

I have 18,000 miles on my Sonic LT with the 1.4 turbo and a six speed manual. Fun little car that gets well over 30 mpg around town. The car came with Hankook Optimo tires. The Hankooks were the worst tire I have ever had on any car. It was down right scary to drive in the snow. I put these Eagle Sports on the car on Saturday, and its is like a completely different car in the snow. It's no longer scary to drive. These tires may even be better in the snow than the F1 all season I have on my G8 GT. Very happy with these tires. I see the traction control light come on a fraction of what I had been seeing, even on the wet roads. I will give an update once I drive in other conditions...but since I bought these tires because of issues with the snow, and they fixed that issue, I'm ecstatic!

I had these tires on a Sonic for a one month rental during a Michigan winter. They are OK in dry and wet conditions, moderately noisy, and handle OK but they are the worst tires I have ever experienced in snow and ice. The tires had appx 5/32 remaining tread, and I found it impossible to climb even a modest hill in snow above 1-2". To travel on snowy roads, I had to drive appx 20 mph to avoid being bogged down in even modest (3") drifts. On bumpy icy roads, the car has so little traction it careened from track to track, sliding 1-2 ft sideways. These tires should be replaced immediately if you are in a snowy area, they are unsafe.

First time using Continental tires. Will not be the last time though.
Surprisingly good tire but I did not see an increase in gas mileage although it is a gas guzzling truck.
