Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Best tires I've ever experienced. Excellent in rain/wet weather- never broke traction, even with my aggressive driving. Dry handling is impressive for an all-season tire and gave the car a whole new, sportier feel. Highway ride is super smooth, especially for UHP tire, and noise levels are suppressed. Better in every way than the stock Goodyear Eagle RS-A...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

June 2016. I bought my car used, 18 months ago. It had a fairly new set of Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position tires. Dealer said they were a great tires for this car.i soon learned that the tires gave a very hard ride...I think because the tire wouldn't flex as much as my Goodyears that I have bought for all my cars during the last 25+ years. Also, to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

II have gotten 58000 miles on these tires and just had 4 more put on at Audi. I read some reviews and people complaining about noise and tire wear. I have no noise and I am looking to get another 50000 plus miles on these. Make sure you car is aligned properly, tires are ballance and proper tire inflation. I put my Audi through its paces and am happy with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I want to provide my initial impression of the Extreme Contact DWS 06 compared to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus that I just returned after 1,000 miles. I replaced the original Good Year Eagle RS-A with the P7 and noticed a significant reduction in steering response, handling, and road holding on the highway. Shame on me for going from a HP tire to a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

Bought this car in the summer of 2011. These are the tires that were on it when I bought it. I am just now replacing them 82,000 miles later. I commute a little over 100 miles a week to and from work.(all highway)Had them rotated with every oil change.....no problems. I got my money's worth.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! What a significant upgrade over my Mercedes' OE ContiProContact tires. Smoother riding, quieter running, outstanding wet road traction (critical in our frequent Florida summer thunderstorms) and less expensive as well. Other purchasers report excellent snow/ice traction and good tread life as well. The former is irrelevant to me given where I live, and...  Read More

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

Best tire I have ever owned! I am a freak about reading reviews and shopping before I buy. I would have bought the Continentals instead had I not seen a few new reviews right before I purchased. Those pearls of wisdom led me to the right tire for my car. I know this may sound like an infommercial but I swear these have been the quietest, smoothest, best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Bought a brand new 2004 Sentra SE-R Spec V in '03 and stuck with the stock Continental tires until I replaced them with these Potenza tires. OMG what a difference! Traction was amazing and these tires felt beyond great! They handled so well! I used to live near a larger angled intersection and by the time I was through with a sharp left turn, I could easily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Im from NJ and just got my tires about 2 weeks ago for a 02 Subaru WRX manual trans AWD and I've been through plenty of tires in the past but next to continental pure contacts witch was the last good tires I had I think these are my best chose. I've been through very rough turns and bends at high rates of speed and never had any tire skip or screeching ....  Read More

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

Purchased these tires for my 2009 GMC Acadia when the OEM Goodyear tires were pathetic...from the moment I pulled off the lot, the OEM tires would slip and slide on wet and dry pavement. I did a lot of research on replacement tires for the car and considered Michelin versus these Continental CrossContact LX20 Eco Plus. Now I can't say anything about fuel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This review is about the DWS 06 but I've also had the earlier DWS on all 3 family cars. I loved the DWS but the DWS 06 does seem to be a worthy upgrade. Live in Massachusetts and drive to the mountains in northern NY (Adirondacks) quite a lot too. Absolutely no problem getting around in wet/dry/mild snow in MA - but I do swap on real snows for the mountains...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These tires are the best tires I've ever owned on any vehicle,They are superior on dry pavement, I've been asked to do burnouts but was unsuccessful as the car would hook and launch instead of peeling out I even bought a set for my minivan. (Nissan Quest) ContiProContact SL and those are great as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I have had these tires on my 2006 Accord V6 6 Speed manual since 98,000. Now the car has 150,000 on it and the tires still have plenty of life left. The outer edges on the tires have more wear than the rest of the tire and the front tires are worn more than the rears but they grip very well after 52,000 miles and in rain. Also note that I do regular...  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 ExtremeContact DWS

I love this tire. I have gone through 5 sets of them (that I can remember) on various cars over the years. Hyrdoplaning resistance and traction in inclement weather is amazing, and dry grip is very good. In comparison to Bridgestone Potenza RE 960 AS tires, I feel that these Continentals have slightly less grip in dry conditions but are much better in rain...  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 ExtremeContact DWS 06

The tires were great at first, But after about 15,00 they became unbearably noisy. They were so loud I thought I must have a bad wheel bearing. I just had my car inspected and was shocked to find out that it wouldn't pass because of the tires, The tires only had 18,500 miles on them. They were rotated every 5K and wore evenly, just wore out. These tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 5P

I live in Colorado and have driven these tires in most every condition except heavy snow. Most recently I did an SCCA Track Night with them starting at normal street pressures. These tires are amazing and probably the best I have owned, especially on the track. I've had many other performance all-seasons and these are the best. After a single track session I...  Read More
