Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Fantastic all weather tires for my Summer (May to Oct) driving needs. Run from late Oct. to Late April and full set of Winter Ice type Snow Tires. Far better then original Audi Continental Factory all season tires. Will look at for other vehicles fitment when needed. Tire Rack service and delivery was excellent.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This review is about the DWS 06 but I've also had the earlier DWS on all 3 family cars. I loved the DWS but the DWS 06 does seem to be a worthy upgrade. Live in Massachusetts and drive to the mountains in northern NY (Adirondacks) quite a lot too. Absolutely no problem getting around in wet/dry/mild snow in MA - but I do swap on real snows for the mountains...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These tires were much better than the OEM Kumhos (Solus I believe) on my 2011 Kia Sorento SX. I actually had some confidence driving in light/deep snow with the Michelins. They weren't as quiet (or comfortable) as I thought they would be, but they were still miles better than those Kumhos.I've got almost 45,000 miles on them with just a couple flats...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I finally got to test these in the winter and they passed the test. I'm in Western Pennsylvania and though the winter of 15-16 was milder than normal, I still had enough snow and occasional ice on which to test the tires. Extremely comfortable ride on dry, and I've noticed an appreciable savings in gasoline along with filling them with Nitrogen. Great wear,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I love this tire. I have gone through 5 sets of them (that I can remember) on various cars over the years. Hyrdoplaning resistance and traction in inclement weather is amazing, and dry grip is very good. In comparison to Bridgestone Potenza RE 960 AS tires, I feel that these Continentals have slightly less grip in dry conditions but are much better in rain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the runflat tires on my car with these. Never looked back. It's quite good improvement compared to the old version and that one was already very good. This one has great traction in all sorts of conditions dry, wet, snow, ice. Cornering stability is a bit weak, but not sure if that's due to my heavy car or the tire. It's noisy on concrete, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These came OEM on our Range Rover. We now have 30k miles on them. I say buy them.Pros: Long wearing; handled snowmagedon in Atlanta a few years ago with aplomb. After the entire city was experiencing pandemonium these tires seemed nearly heroic in the light snow and VERY icy conditions. I drove up my steep paved driveway that was covered in snow and ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400

Typical O.E. tire quality and performance. Standard ride comfort, squeals easily during cornering, limited traction in wet and light snow. Compared this tire on O.E. wheel set and Volk CE28n wheel set, identical sets of 225/55r18 Duelers H/L 400. Both tire sets were O.E. on 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring models with similar manufacturing dates.Currently...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Awesome tires, would definitely buy them again. If you live in snow these are the tires to buy. For the money you're getting every bit of traction for your dollar. I live in Minnesota and drive very spirited these handle in snow and dry and rain with no problem. They're a little too loud on the road and not very soft but I can only expect so much.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 5P

I live in Colorado and have driven these tires in most every condition except heavy snow. Most recently I did an SCCA Track Night with them starting at normal street pressures. These tires are amazing and probably the best I have owned, especially on the track. I've had many other performance all-seasons and these are the best. After a single track session I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The Geolander H/T G95A has performed much better than I'd expected from a set of OE tires. I live in the DC Metro area and since I've owned the Forester dealt with a few major (for this region) and a number of moderate snow events, as well as significant rainy spells. When I was faced with Snowmageddon in Feb. 2010, I found that once I cleared a bit of space...  Read More

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

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Good for NJ Winter. I have an Acura TSX. Bought these tires on a suggestion from a friend and after reading all the positive reviews. Didn't want to invest in snows/rims but looking for something that would make me feel more secure when driving my 18 miles to work every day.These tires have made a huge difference when driving in the snow. I love them! I live...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Bought these tires for my daughter's first car based on the reviews and tire rack's ratings. with about 1000 miles so far, I can honestly say that this WAS NOT a mistake. GREAT tires so far. The wet and dry traction and handling is as advertised by the ratings. Had the tires installed at a local tire chain and was told by the manager that ho loves this tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

An standardized usage rating system would be useful for all season tires. At one end would be the Pilot Sport A/S 3. Excellent dry, wet and cornering traction with marginal snow and ice performance. On the other end would be the ExtremeContact DWS 06. A tire biased toward class leading snow and ice traction with average touring tire handling. Both are good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were rated no:1 when I was looking for new tires for the X3 and since I already had them on a 03' 330i ZHP, I decided to get them. Having all wheel drive and some considerable clearance on the X3, theses tires perform better than expected. It was like driving on regular road when driving in 4-5in. of snow. They are quiet, has an incredible ride...  Read More
