Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

My main reason for selecting this tire is for its winter snow traction. Traveling from the Bay Area to the Tahoe area ski resorts is a yearly occurrence. The OEM tires had decent dry performance but had very little snow traction, even with 4 wheel drive. It was so bad, the car was sliding around on the highway with light snow covering. The new tires were ---...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I drive a 2010 VW CC sport and I've had this tire on my car for 28,000 miles. I bought the VW CC because I wanted a car with a nice balance between sportiness and luxury. I love everything about this tire except for one. This tire feels very precise. The tracking is spot on and there is no wandering. The grip is amazing in both the wet and dry. There is no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

MUST READ! Winter driving experience! Vehicle: 2007 Cobalt SS Supercharged 17PSI LSD 5-Speed Manual. (Wisconsin)Winter experience: I am highly surprised with these tires, everyone was telling me I would not move a FWD with a 45 series tire. I completely disagree! These tires are incredible!! I have driven in snow up to 5 in the worst hilly area you could...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These came standard on my 2010 Outback. They are great tires in the summer, including in the rain, but once a little snow starts to fall or it'd cold enouhg for ice, they're terrible. They are very quick to hydroplane and lose traction, especially in the slush that forms on highways during a storm, even at low to moderate speeds. Braking and steering are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! Continental has a home run with these tires. Comfort: The tires are much quieter than I expected for a high performance tire. They are no louder than the Goodyear RSA's that were OEM. The car is much more comfortable now over bumps. Before, I got a sharp impulse bump over uneven manholes, etc; now the bumps have a smooth flow with a lower amplitude to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

OEM tire for this car. Rotated them every 6,000 miles and got 62,000miles out of them. To be real fair with this tire, being on an small economy car, they did the intended job. Dry traction was good and they wore out very evenly. Wet traction was decent and hydroplaning was bit of an issue halfway through the tire. If found for the right price I would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I like these well enough to buy another set. They're much better than the OEM Continentals the car came with. Those only lasted for 19K miles, and that with having to replace three of them after hitting potholes in Boston--pretty weak. The 970's feel solid, hang in the corners and do pretty well in the snow. They were pretty quiet up till 35K miles, but now...  Read More

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

My initial response to this tire after just a couple thousand miles is very positive.The BFG's are very quiet and much smoother riding than the Continental run flats that came with the car. Dry traction has been outstanding and I am unable to make these tires squeal no matter how hard I try. We had a couple days of hard rain and I wet traction was equally as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought these for my wife. Immediately noticed a marked reduction in gas mileage. There goes any money we hoped to save! And because the Civic has that dumb (and numb) electric steering, these tires require constant correction - very aggravating and tiring, especially on longer trips. The sidewalls are way too soft and make the car lean heavily while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just replaced a set of Continential RFT's on my 528. I got about 40K out of the Conti's and was pleased, but the ride was a bit harsh for a bmw. These tires are amazing. It drives exactly what I was hoping for. While only 100 miles on the new set, its like night and day compared to the Continental RFT's. They look great and the ride finally drives like a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D687

OEM tire that came with the RAV4, this lasted about 40k through many NY/NJ/PA potholes and a lot of random nails and such on the streets of the city. Commuting 50-70 miles a day plus long family trips, no real worries and it held up okay, though noisy and wore down while on the RAV4 (I partially blame that on the Toyota dealership where it's free service...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these to replace the original Michelin MXV4 tires because the Michelins were completely worn out at 30K miles. Based on every review and advice I recieved from Tire Rack and other sources the Conti DWS should have been a great tire. I even had them on a previous 2005 Lexus and they were great on that car. They have outstanding handling and steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

The tires were great in the beginning, great traction on wet and dry but after my car passed the 15K miles those tires became extremely noisy with the speed of 40-50 MPH. I did all the proper rotations at every oil change (10K miles). They've been always properly inflated and balanced, too. The tires are not bad over all except they are getting noise, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

Compared to the Bridgestone Dueler RF's, I feel like im floating on a cloud. Its almost disturbing. The entire car characteristics changed. significant increase in handling and braking. Haven't tried snow yet. Quiet, and smooth are my thoughts. Looks is decent as well. Thumbs up   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my 3rd set of tires on my Hyundai Genesis. OEM tires Dunlop 500 were horrible. 2nd set were Kumho and they were better, but these Continentals are by far the best traction, ride and noise level of these 3 tires I have had on this car. My next set will definetly be another set of these Continental pure contact with ECO plusA great tire for this car....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Had these tires for only about 10k, but they are extremely comfortable compared to the Yoko's I had on it. Smooth ride with great grip. I feel like they will last longer than the Pilot Sport 3 or Pilot Sport A/S 3. Michelin pretty much makes some of the best and longer lasting tires on the market. I would recommend this tire to drivers that want a sporty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I have driven on this tire for 20000 miles before they began making noise and it seems to just be getting louder. I have taken the car to have it looked at but they can find nothing wrong. There is no visible cupping and although this tire rides great, I do not think I would buy this tire again. If only the Pirelli's were out when I bought these.   Read More
