Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Took these up to the mountain and I have gotta say i'am very impressed in the quality of these tires. I initially went in to get snow tires but i was quickly referenced to these all seasons in terms of versatility and performance. I did replace my OEM run flat tires which some people and the dealership advise against, but as long as you monitor tire pressure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Quiet, comfortable, and capable. My research led me to believe these are best-in-class, and my experience so far supports that conclusion. Sure enough, the tires are a perfect match for the character of the G37xS and my driving style. Excellent grip in both the wet and dry and inspires confidence in corners. I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is the fourth vehicle I have put either the DWS06 or its predacessor the DWS on. I have been very pleased in each case. We have the DWS on our BMW Z3 and on our Porsche Boxster and had them on a previous Mazda 3. The new DWS 06 is a bit quieter and has a bit better turn in and retains the excellent ride and grip under all conditions other than snow &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I live in the midwest in a state that is known for encountering quickly changing weather. I need to be prepared to drive in all types of weather conditions. Hot,cold, below zero temps,dry, wet, ice, light and deep snow, we get it all. I am a have been a huge Yokohama fan and was set to purchase some for my (new to me) '13 Azera. After much consideration,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

with only 2000 miles on these and no snow / ice driving it's hard to rate them in that area but the dry / wet traction is at least as good or better than the Michelins they replaced. the Michelins felt squirmy under cornering conditions and the Contis feel much better connected. they may be a little rougher over some surfaces but it feels like the side walls...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Only 1,000 miles but the tires are performing very well in all wet and light snow conditions. We will plan to check the wear and traction one year from now.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I have had these tires just over a year now and put about 20,000 miles on them. These are the best tires all-weather tires I have had on my BMW. The only drawback is they are a bit noisy. They handle well in the dry, wet, snow and are really great on the ice. My rear wheel drive BMW with some wight in the trunk, now gets around as good as my front wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I commute 180-190 miles per day mostly on interstate under mix of all seasonal conditions and frequent sudden turns and hard braking to avoid sudden traffic stops. I am very pleased with these tires and their performance. Wear is outstanding. I'm at 65K and can still read the snow S on tread. I've actually been considering running through another winter due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

Well, I have only had these tires for a couple of days (the OEM Yokahama G91F's were completely worn at 30k miles) but Mother Nature threw a great test storm at us on Christmas Eve here in the Central Highlands of Arizona around Prescott. We went from heavy rain and 40 degrees to heavy, wet snow and upper 20's all in the space of a couple of hours. I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I could not be happier with this purchase. I was never 100% pleased with the X-ice I had on a previous vehicle, and the Blizzaks on the vehicle before that. Both of those brands are always over-priced here in Canada. Simply put, the X-ice and Blizzaks are just are not good value for the dollar.Continental, however, hit a home run with the WinterContact...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought the Continental WinterContact tires mounted on 17 Axis Modle Five gunmetal wheels from Tire Rack as seasonal replacements that I can swap in my garage. The wheels look better than my stock Audi S3 18 wheels. I mounted them three weeks ago and have already driven in three snow storms in Portland, Oregon and Washington. I'm shocked at how well they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I installed these tires a few weeks ago. Since that time I experienced heavy rain, dry roads and heavy slushy snow. I like these tires a lot! I was shocked by how good they were in two inches of heavy, sloppy wet snow. These tires handle better than the Continental that came on the vehicle new. The ride is slightly stiffer but its not something the average...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental VancoWinter

The vehicle came standard with the Hankook Dynapro HT tires that provided little to no traction during winter driving. Had my first experience driving through snow, sleet, and freezing rain, I had no issues getting around while passing up other vehicles of the same caliber work van getting stuck. Would definitely recommend this tire for winter driving.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Purchased these tires last year, and have experienced everything from snow/slice/ice to dry pavement in them. They have exceeded my expectations in every possible way, and I consider them to be a major upgrade over the OEM Dunlops my car came with.I was a bit concerned going with an UHP All Season compared to a set of dedicated snow tires, but I wasn't let...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased my second set of continental DWS tires today at the Tire Rack. I live in South Bend Indiana about five minutes away from their location. My rear tires were worn down to where the S was gone. This morning I drove over to their office in a snowstorm and could barely make it there. With the new tires installed I drove home in the same conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Have a little over 3k miles on the DWS 06, driven aggressively in the dry, commuted on in dry, wet, and now snow and ice. Was very impressed with the tire in all driving conditions. This really is a do all tire. Stickes well in dry, wet and snow as advertised. Always ran Continental DW in Ca, moved to Or so needed better wet/snow traction and didn't want to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of Contis, although they changed slightly (From DWS to DWS 06). They've been really solid 3/4 season tires, and the wear has been acceptable to me. I don't consider them an ultra-high-performance tire, but the upside is they're much more quiet and comfortable than the original Dunlop 5000's, and the 06 DWS is clearly improved over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Take this review with a grain of salt as I just had these tires installed. I had quite a few different tires on my 6 years BMW 128i and that car being as tactile as it is, I can immediately feel a the difference from a tire to another with it. I just swapped my summer tires (Continental Extreme Contact DW, which I adore) for these for getting prepared for...  Read More
