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 Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

6 Months / 9000 miles later. Driving habits 90% highway / country road 10% city Very conservative driving in terms of tread wear Purchased a set of 4 new LX20 tires after taking several months of reading customer reviews to replace my OEM goodyears. Strong points of these tires : Almost no rolling noise/resistance, great tires in terms of fuel consumptionExce...  Read More

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

This has not been my primary vehicle. I drove it a few times last winter in about 4 inches of snow and the tires did well. The tires are much less noisy than the OEM's. The set I got were made in Portugal. I believe they make this tire in the US also. They did not take any excessive weights in order to balance the tires. I purchased the tires through tire...  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 Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

It just works. There's not much more you need to know. AWD helps but you can certainly screw up with bad all seasons in the snow. Once in a while my tires just lose all traction when making a sharp turn, but you shouldn't be doing that at high speeds on snow on public roads anyway. And let's face it, you don't do off road snow racing.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Bought this tire to use with my summer wheels in march 2013 and have been very happy with the ride comfort, steering response and grip on the road in dry and wet weather. This tire does have kind of a soft sidewall but as long as you don't hit potholes very hard you are ok. I switch to winter tires around November and it has taken it's first year worth of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

By far the best tire I've ever had. I bought many of the other brands but none all as good as this tire for all conditions. Hydro planing is almost non existant, awesome in the snow and excellent on dry pavement. Highly recommend this tire for all seasons. Only con is that they don't like potholes, sidewalls are kinda weak.   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

Only after 1600 miles, I noticed how much quieter these tires were compared to the OEM Pirellis. We just had a light snowfall and these tires performed exactly as I had anticipated. I tried to spin all four tires in the snow, but couldn't. One thing I have not liked about continentals are their softer sidewalls. I am thinking these tires seem to flex more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is my second set of these tires and I have found them to be one of the best all-season tires out there. These tires have great performance in almost any condition, I especially like them for the snow, whether we are talking light or deep snow, they always seems to perform quite well. Of course on ice, there traction is limited, but no more than any...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I live in Toronto I bought this tire after using a cheap brand winter tire. Huge difference as I put them. the car driving totally changed. Excellent on the snow and Ice very good on the dry and wet.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I put these tires on a C6 Corvette and could not be happier. They have the appropriate speed rating for a 'vette and perform beyond my expectations. The OEM run flats sounded like snow tires. Was difficult to hear the radio at freeway speeds. To compensate for the tire not being a run flat, I bought a tire pump from Groits Garage and a plug kit for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I was looking for a tire with a good mix of performance and quietness. The snow and wet performance of this tire is very good. they are pretty squishy if it gets to be over 50 degrees though. They feel slightly lethargic on initial turn in but are stable and predictable in corners. Under moderate acceleration in warmer conditions you can hear the siping slap...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Had these for a few months, they are a big step up from the stock tires in terms of road/tire noise and general comfort. We had our first snow and they haven't had an issue. Grip is generally good and they feel very planted on the road.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I've had these tires about 9 months now. On dry roads, including paved/dirt, handling, grip, and acceleration are excellent. For wet roads handling has been very good, although acceleration w/o slipping is reduced. For snow, tires have not been fully challenged yet; to date in moderate snow control has been good without slipping/loss of control, while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Just got a set of 4 new DWS for my Audi A4. Have about 500 miles on them. Drove them in the rain a few times and they had good grip. On dry roads, they were fine. Haven't had the chance to try them on snow yet. It seems like a good all around tire and very comfortable, but the Conti Pro Contacts they replaced were far more engaging in terms of steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Potenza S001 RFT, which were really noisy, not to mention I have to rush home if it ever snows to change my tires. There was a leak on my rear right tire, so I pulled the trigger and after many reviews read, decided to get the DWS.After the tires were mounted on my 19s', it was night and day. Vehicle was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact UHP

This is my third set. I get 30,000 miles per set with semi aggressive driving (hard cornering, high speed highway but conservative city) on a 6,000 pound vehicle. My rating is based on the whole lifecycle of the tire. The first 25,000 miles delivers extraordinary dry and wet traction and comfort with very low road noise. They even perform well in snow as...  Read More

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

My Genesis came with Continentals which I changed out at 32,000 miles due to wear. To date, I am very impressed by the Michelin AS3's as they provide the balance that I was looking for between handling and comfort. I reside in SE Texas so I don't have to worry about snow or ice but we do have monsoon type rain storms and these tire have performed well in wet...  Read More
