Initial Review, 25,000 Miles on Tires
February 16, 2014

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so in addition to city/highway, I do cornfields, creeks and every other type of off-road driving that can be found in the Midwest. The only thing that keeps me from buying a Range Rover Sport is that I cannot find these tires for that truck. I still have my LX 470 and still use the LTX M/S on that truck (it has 287K). I'm not necessarily a Michelin freak. My wife has a Lexus RX and I'm putting Continentals on that. But for the larger SUVs, the LTX M/S is fantastic tire. I like the M/S 2 better than the M/S, but they don't make it for the '00 LX470. When my friends are stuck in their Range Rovers, I'm going strong, mainly because of the traction these tires afford. On the highway, rain, snow, and sun, the tires handle well and are quiet. I'm 63 and have driven a car/truck farther in reverse than most have driven in forward. These tires are simply the best. If they make 'em to fit your vehicle, buy them. You will thank me. I promise. And I don't work for Michelin or anybody else in any auto related industry.

Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
February 28, 2014

I bought these tires a couple months ago, based on the test ratings on this website. As usual, the Tire Rack ratings were dead on! I drive (on average) about 2,000 miles per week, and live in west Michigan. Due to the unpredictable nature of Michigan weather, I needed a tire that performed well in all weather conditions. These tires do everything they say they do, and at a good price.

I was concerned, having a rear-wheel drive car, that an all-season tire would not perform well enough for winter driving. Acceleration at times can be a struggle, but I've never had an issue with traction, when every other vehicle on the road didn't have the same problems. Stopping on icy, slushy, and snow covered roads is NEVER a problem. I've never had a set of tires that allows me to stop like these tires do.

In dry conditions, I don't think there is an UHP-tire available that out-perfoms these. I'm sure there are others that perform as well, but it would be a stretch to say they are better. The tires that are as good, are generally more than twice the price. The only tires that I would consider relatively equal both in performance and price, would be the Continental Extreme Contact DWS'. I think the tread wear is a little better on the Hankook tires though.

Road noise (on good roads) is all but non-existant. My car runs 40 series up front, with 35 series in the rear. I expected these tires to have a very harsh ride, but they are surprisingly comfortable. As anticipated, corner roll doesn't happen, but it shouldn't with such a low-profile tire. Heat disipation is good. I've only had them in weather up to 65 F at this point, but they have never felt surprisingly warm, even after several miles of spirited curved road driving.

The only complaint I have, is these tires "track" pretty bad on grooved roads. It may be due to the 225 front, and 255 rear widths, but I didn't notice this issue with the Goodyear tires my car came with.

My car came with a set of the equivalent Continentals when I got my 2009 Volvo XC70 T6. The Pirellis are superior in every respect. First off, the Continentals only lasted 25,000 miles. I now have the same mileage on the Pirellis and have MUCH tread left on them. The Pirellis are also MUCH, MUCH better than the Continentals on light snow, slush, and ice. PLUS, the Pirellis are quieter and ride better.

We only have about 2000 miles on these tires but they are a huge improvement over the previous Continental Extreme contact DWS. The biggest improvement is the decrease in road noise. The Mazda 3 is a loud car on the highway, I believe, due to a lack of sound deadening but these new Pirelli tires make the it far better than before. The traction in the dry is great and we have yet to test them in snow. Stand by for an update., but very happy so far and we will be putting these tires on the Subaru Outback too!

This is definitely not a tire for winter driving conditions. The Cayenne handled very well in the snow with the OEM Goodyears. As soon as there is a little slush on the road the Continentals get squirrely. In snowy conditions it's difficult to keep the car on the road without going slower than all of the other traffic. Would definitely not recommend for regions that experience much / any snow.

Replaced the oem Michelins at 44,000 miles. I put on the Continental Extreme ContactDWS tires which were good, but only lasted 35,000 miles and were rotated every 7,000 miles and became loud after 30,000 miles. I now have the Pirelli's and they are far superior to the Continentals and Michelins. We had a bad winter with a lot of snow and some ice, best tire I have ever had for an all season tire, I am thrilled. I expect them to last better than the Continentals. These tires are very quiet so far and handling is fine, these are not for racers, but these are the best commuter tires I have owned. I have had 90 cars in my lifetime, and these tires truly impress me. I have not seen any fuel economy benefit relative to the other tires I have had on this car, but the car now has some miles and age to it. Strongly recommend these tires.

It is a decent tire with predictable traction and supple ride however its traction ability goes down quite a bit as the temperature drops below 30. My tires maybe about half worn now and during this crazy winter we are having in the Northeast of the US the tires on my normally very well behaved car would slide a bit in turns when it got cold + snow/icy.

I got these Michelin Super Sports when I put on my aftermarket 19" Brabus wheels. They are solid performers and have a nice quiet ride, which compliments the car. Road noise is minimal, even when the tires are worn down. Driving style is moderately spirited, the car is a daily driver to and from the office, with a mix of street and hwy in Orange County, CA.
My issue is the tread life. I used to get 20,000 miles+ from the Michelin PS2 tire and the Goodyear Eagle F1. On these Super Sports, I only got 17,000 miles, and the tread is showing on both of the rears (E550 is a rear-wheel drive car). I'm going with another brand this time, most likely the Continental Extreme Contact DW.

Flew from Dallas to Denver on Sunday to pick this 2013 Scion XB, car was used with only 3400 miles on it. Drove from Denver to OKC Monday afternoon/night, perfect weather and dry roads all the way. About 20 miles east of Denver on I-70 started hearing a strange sound, thought for a minute or so that a wheel bearing was talking to me, after a few miles the pavement changed and the noise vanished. This noise came and went all the way to Dallas based on the pavement surface, I have never heard a tire talk this much or at this DB level. Just ordered new Continental PureContact W/Ecoplus to solve the problem, have them on my wifes car and they are great.

Hands down the best winter/snow tire you can purchase if your car can mount 17' wheels. I just traveled up the east coast during this past week's major snow storm that hit the south/mid-atlantic (2/13/14) and I never had a moment where the car felt out of control or that I could not traverse a patch of snow or ice. My experience is that of a car with AWD so that being the case these tires made it feel as though I was on a regular surface when trouncing through half a foot of powdery snow.

These tires can give a sense of over confidence though, because they're so good at stopping you and at getting traction specifically. This doesn't mean you're impervious to very deep snow or won't get your car stuck doing something stupid. What it means is that you're more capable of getting around in heavy snow with these tires then arguably any other set here on Tire Rack. Yes, they are that good.

Only have 500 miles on these, but what a HUGE improvement over the OE Potenza RE050's that came on this car. The DW's noticably smoother & quieter with no noticable loss of cornering ability or control. Best of all the horrid tramlining this car is notorious for is completely gone! Have not driven in the rain yet, so can't comment on the wet handling. So far, 2 thumbs up - price was very reasonable too.

I live on the prairies in Canada where the temps are averaging -25* Dec - March. We get lots of snow and lots of ice in town and on the highways. I bought the car in May and this was the first winter. I was nervous to use these tires as everyone here has winter tires due to our conditions. I was blown away by the traction and grip these tires have! I cant speak to what they would be like after, say 30000miles, but now they are great. I still most likely will purchase winter tires largely due to not wanting to ruin my good rims.

Overall I think they are great and I drive in some severe cold, snow, ice and slush 6 months of the year!

Initial Review, 800 Miles on Tires
February 17, 2014

This is an initial review and first impression. I'll post more detail when we rack up more miles. Most initial reviews tend to be relative, meaning the first impression tends to be based on comparison to the previous tires. These PureContacts (235/50/18 97V) replaced OEM Michelin Latitude Tour HP tires, which performed well with good tread life, even tread wear, and quiet ride. Their primary downfall was less than secure handling in winter conditions.

Out of the gate, these Continentals are very good. The ride is quiet, at least as quite or more so than the Michelins. They ride firm as a new tire, but not excessively so. We've driven them in light snow and wet conditions with no problems. Steering response is noticeably improved, but this is a Volvo with the comfort chassis and it's never going to be sporty.

I researched tires in great detail for weeks and went back and forth before choosing these tires. In the end, there were two tie breakers: the 60-day buy and try guarantee plus the consistent reviews and tests showing this tire has excellent handling in wet and light snow. It didn't hurt that these also were the least expensive of the top rated grand touring all season tires. For a family car, it's important for a tire to earn its keep when you need it most, which is during poor weather conditions and emergency braking. This has been a great choice so far.

I read the reviews of this tire and have to laugh when people say they are weak in the dry traction area. I drive VERY spirited through tight mountain roads and they are fantastic. They out preform the Michelin, Kumho, and Continental sport tires hands down. These things stick like glue and lose traction very predictably. If you have trouble with traction or ultimate grip with these tires it is NOT the tires lol. My son runs the DZ 1, I know it is a softer compound then the 101, on and his M3 suspension binds before his tires lose grip. He has run both and had the same experience I had. I bought them on this site and am thinking about getting them again for another car. They do not last as long as the others I mentioned but that is the trade off for the grip you get. My "5" means average my "10" means exceeds expectations.

When I got these tires as a Christmas gift, the salesman remarked that they were "an awful lot of tire" for my Taurus. But, sometimes, too much of a good thing is exactly what you need, even if you dont have to drive like Jimmie Johnson or Jeff Gordon..This tire doesn't care if the pavement is dry, drowning in a downpour, covered with slush or underneath a bed of clean, powdery snow.from a dusting to several inches. Beautifully smooth, quiet ride. My car sits outside and the brutal cold of this 2013/14 winter didn't bother it, either. There were no flat spots from sitting 8-10 hours in subzero temps-they just roll with it. Excellent control and handling on the unplowed, powder-covered or snow-packed roads here in the Chicago burbs. These are simply the best overall tire I've had regardless of weather or driving conditions for a passenger car

Overall, this a very good tire. I am driving a Eurospec VW Touran 1.9TDI in Germany and with it being a Highline, I have the factory sport suspension. Overall, I am impressed with how they handle. Coming from ExtremeContact DWS, it is a slight downgrade, and different class of tire, but a predictable tire. I drive spiritedly some days and easy others. Snow traction is very good in my opinion as the traction control very rarely intervenes. Braking is decent in snow and good in dry. Wet traction is OK, but I trust every tire as far as I can throw it in the rain. Steering response is really good and accurate and with my Touran, I have no problem keeping up with other drivers and/or showing them up. They do not let you know when they are ready to give up though. That could boil down to electric steering though. Most cars lack tactile feedback with electric steering setups, so I won't ding the tire for that. ECO, don't know. I average 42MPG for the most part, so I don't know if I am really seeing the return in my wallet with the ECO rating. As I am on my 5th set of Conti's, I have lots of faith in this brand. I have driven on many different brands, but I tend to come back to Conti. This is my 3rd set in a row as I had the ExtremeContacts on an E39 530d and enjoyed those. With Conti, you really can't go wrong, and why pay more for the other brands. I trust Conti and will stick with them and of course, TIRE RACK. Can't beat the service and knowledge. I have no problem recommending this tire to anyone that is looking for a good all season tire.

Keep in mind these tires went on a light 2 wheel drive car and they are all season tires. I was looking for a tire that would get a Pontiac Vibe out of the barn during northern Indiana winters without going to full blown winter tires. First of all, this is the 4th set of tires I have had on this vehicle and I put them on in the summer. They absolutely ROCKED! The best ride all around this car has ever had. It was like driving a totally different vehicle. Then came old man winter and these brutal Polar Vortexes. Once again, this is a low clearance 2 wheel drive car and NO tire will be a lifesaver on ice unless you get a studded one. Regardless, I have been impressed. I haven't gotten stuck in any snow that the car didn't bottom out on. I have not have any slide outs much less any slide offs. It obviously can't compete with my 4x4 Jeep and I obviously have to drive like I am on snow and ice and not like the idiots you see on the evening news, but odds are that I will replace them with the exact same tires when these wear out. Plus, they make them just a few miles up the road from my house so I am supporting the local economy!

We bought these tires in Oct based on research on Tire Rack, it was an excellent decision! Right off the batt the ride was comfortable and relatively quiet, during hard cornering or panic stops they stick. I Im an average driver but from time to time i do push my car close to its limit and im not worried about loosing it, off ramps, sweeping turns and such feel good. But the BIG impression is the snow ability of this tire, this winter has been bad from Dec on snow after snow ive been pleased on local and expressway roads with little to 8'' (before the bottom is dragging) of snow or slush and hard pack you have confidence in the traction you have, my wife even said she felt that way and she hates driving in the snow. Now ice is a little different its not a snow tire but it is better than other tires ive had in the past. I will buy these again, I wish there was a greater selection in sizes for my other cars ( Mercury Marque and old Accord)
