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

This is the 4th set of these I've owned, and the first for this car. We've now had the car for 5 months and when purchased it had new Continentals on it. Needless to say, our intention was to replace them prior to purchase. One week later we did and are now happy with how the car was meant to be.Road noise is minimal from the tire as wind noise overtakes...  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 ExtremeContact DWS

Actually with a few miles on the car they are perfect. But my main concern is treadwear, after trying a set of sumitomo and kumho ectsa 4x, both last close 2 years(30 000 miles). I hope to go for 3 years with these DWS Next review in the summer 2015.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I am simply amazed by the abilities of an old, light, rear wheel drive car (without a limited slip differential!) when paired with these tires. Not only is starting traction no longer an issue, the braking and skid resistance abilities of this tire seem to defy physics. I was able to *back up* a driveway steep enough that it was difficult to walk up without...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I am on my fifth BMW X5 with this one an M class. Have tried almost all the brands and this is the only one I will put on my X5. I live in the mountains with all roads very twisty and steep. Winters are usually light with some snow and ice. Would never put another summer sport tire on this car as they don't last much more than 10 - 12000 miles. These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

When i bought my Mercedes it had miss matched tires on the front and rear and noticed the rears where an almost worn set of DWS so i bought a full set and drove from Dallas texas to North Dakota ,they are very comfortable a little noisy but i dont notice when the windows are up , Pretty good in the rain and i dont really drive my CLK in the winter but had to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

Don't know what everyone is complaining about. I have met numerous Santa Fe owners ('13>'15) who all praise the car and these optional tires on the AWD Sport Turbo. Driven in some horrible snow storms, some with blizzard conditions and never had any problems. Ice? Scarey no matter what you drive with whatever tire. These held their own. Wet Traction has been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have these on a subaru impreza, and they are fantastic. between these tires and AWD, this subaru gets into our driveway (up hill, gravel, usually slushy or icy) as well or better than my F350 in 4 wheel. the only time that car stutters is if the snow is deep enough to have the car sit on the frame. unstoppable, and 20,000+ miles later, they still have TONS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These replaced OEM ContiProContact tires on my 2013 Volvo front-drive S60 sedan. The old tires only had 17k on them, but one was damaged during a flat repair, and the retailer offered me two new tires plus $130 rebate on the remaining two...I couldn't resist. I have noticed the following: these tires ride more smoothly, seemingly better able to absorb bumps...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I've been waiting to review these tires til I could try them out in snow. I live in the NYC Metro area and bought these tires back in June 2014. It's been 6 months now and have to say with all the recent snow storms, these tires are absolutely amazing in the snow!Anyone who has a minivan and drives in the snow knows how crazy it can be especially if it's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is an excellent tire. My first priorities were traction (safety), noise, then comfort. This tire delivers as advertised. I feel like I got a lot of performance in all weather conditions for the cost. My confidence level while driving with this tire is second to none. This tire has rescued me from a couple of close calls both in the rain and on dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is a follow up from a review at 4,000 miles. These are great tires for a sporty sedan. I chose these over Extreme Contacts because of the expected wear factor. 14,000 miles later they have minimal wear. Handling and ride are excellent and give a sense of confidence in rain and light snow. I just did a one-day 400 miles round trip to (cold and icy)...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position that replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 on my Acura TSX. The Michelins had poor dry traction as the tires aged and were just ok in snow. The Bridgestones were excellent in all aspects except the winter season. They were terrible on ice or light/heavy snow, to the point that I needed to...  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 ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these when I moved from the South back to the Midwest a little over three years ago. The original tires on my Hyundai Azera were very good and had a fair amount of tread left on them, but they were not all-season and were never going to cut it in an Ohio winter. I was surprised initially by how much quieter they were than my original tires. I did a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Got caught in a driving snow-storm on I-81. Left the highway and had to make my way up and down hills for about ten miles to get to a hotel to wait out the weather. At that point there was about 4-6 inches of snow and the roads were completely unplowed. It was packed down in most cases but I still had to bull-doze my way through drifts a couple times.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I replaced a set of Continental summer tires with these Super Sports, and the improvement in all aspects of the handling and ride is remarkable! These will also be my next choice for a couple of other cars I have that are due for new shoes in the next few months.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is my 6th set of Continental DWS over several years on different cars. These tires make the Z Roadster quiet and smooth. Minor turn-in response difference compared with stock tires at the limit but not likely noticed on the street. Also being 5 lbs. lighter than stock, the unsprung weight reduction improves feel and response. I never drive in snow and...  Read More
