Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

This is absolutely the BEST tire I have had on my 07 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. I drive a healthy mix of city and highway, on a winding mountain highway. Good tires are very important to me. I have had a whole host of tires on my Highlander over the years trying to find the promised land of durability, handling and ride comfort.Prior to the Continental...  Read More

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

Wow. What a great tires! I was looking for my previous Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS replacement. These tires were extremely loud and uncomfortable. I also hated the cheap looking pattern. I decided to replace them with Pirelli P7 Cinturato and I could not be happier with my choice. Tires are so quiet that the only thing that I hear now is the wind at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I am one of the X-5 owners who suffered through a set of run flats that were on the car when I bought it. A year ago this month I bought a set of the Continental DWS's, but did not have them installed on the car until this past April.What a difference and delighted I bought them. These tires performed extremely well all summer. They are quiet, smooth, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I bought these tires in September of 2015. They replaced a set of Michelin Defender tires. I was pleased with the Defender but bought these based on Tire Rack's ratings. I have been only pleased with the Continentals! I will buy another set when needed. They wear evenly & well. They are quiet. They offer good traction all around. Fuel mileage was comparable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

These tire are a great option to winter tires. It's all season capilitbilty is above adequate. Hydro plane resistance is decent however don't expect superior dry condition responsiveness. That's not what these tires are design for. If you own a cruising luxury vehicle and are in need of a quiet smooth ride with dependability during rain and snow then I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Living in Minnesota winters have a tendency to be really tough. One day we will have -15 degree temps and it will be nothing but sheer ice, the next day it could be 20 degrees with wet heavy snow. So far the tires have been absolutely phenomenal! When I got them installed to replace the OEM all season Nexen tires I was expecting that the road noise would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These tire far exceeded my hopes and expectations! I honestly had no idea that tires could make this much difference and I fully expect I will purchase a new set of these again. Living in Seattle I experience rain on a regular basis and that had a lot to do with why I chose these tires. What really stands out to me about these are their ability to cut...  Read More

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

First off.... if you own a 2008+ Audi TT MK 2 w/ 255/35/19's (2cd generation style) you will have a problem with these on the rear of your car even though you are using the stock sizing.These tires are beefier than the ContiSport summers it came with . Once installed the rear tires will hit the tab that hangs down off the body inside the rear wheelhouse...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

The OEM ContiProContact's were getting low on treadlife and handled decently. I was waiting to find something until seeing the DWS06. I ordered them and had the dealer install them. It took a couple days to break them in. I tried to drive modestly for the first couple hundred miles. They felt great. The on/off ramp was slightly soft but not to where I felt...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These are my second set on a second car. On both cars i averaged about 50,000 miles each. Ive driven in various conditions to a foot of snow, 1/4 of packed ice, heavy rain and easy 120*F roads. Minimal issues in comparison to Hankook and Eagle tires i have also had. These DWS have outlasted all tires i have ever had. I had my car in Germany and ran them up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

after owning 2 previous sets of the conti dws and was pleased with their performance, I once again replaced with with the DWS 06 model. What a mistake. I have put 18k miles on these tires this last year and am thinking that I will need to replace before winter. tread depth measures anywhere between 3/32 and 4/32nds on the tear. they have worn unevenly and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

As these tires wear, road noise increases, but handling remains excellent. This car has a stiff ride, so I will opt for other tires in the future, hoping for less shock to my body. Compared to my '05 Camry, this car/tire combination is rough & noisy.   Read More

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

These tires were recommended by the dealership. I was skeptical, but, bought them as replacements for the original equipment Goodyear Forteras. These Continentals have been a great all around tire. I will definitely buy them again. They are far superior to the Forteras.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced the OE Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02's that came with the car. Massive improvement in all aspects. Dry and wet traction is impressive. Quietness and smoothness is markedly better than the originals.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Sport 3

These replaced the Continentals (lasted 20k mi) that came OE with the Macan. In comparison, the Michelin's have similar traction characteristics but ride much smoother and have lower cabin noise. Have always had good experiences with Michelin's.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Owning this AWD vehicle and buying these tires proved to me how tires make all the difference when it comes to driving on snow or ice. The original continental high performance all weather tires (and a second set of another brand) while great for driving in the dry and wet, were awful in the snow or ice once I had put 10k miles on them (each set only lasted...  Read More

My Tire's Sidewall is Bulging. Now What?

A break, bulge or bubble in the sidewall of your tire is typically the result of an impact that damaged the tire casing's fabric reinforcing plies. This means only thin layers of rubber remains to contain air inside the tire. Replacing the tire as soon as possible is the best path forward. If you have road hazard coverage, this should be a covered event. Tire...  Read More
