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 TrueContact

I replaced a set of Conti ExtremeContact DWS with the Conti TrueContact tire. While happy with the ExtremeContact DWS they were a bit noisy and were beat up pretty bad from some very spirited driving during the 40,000 miles I had on them. They were also getting close to requiring replacement anyway. A sidewall bubble developed after hitting a curb so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

June 2016. I bought my car used, 18 months ago. It had a fairly new set of Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position tires. Dealer said they were a great tires for this car.i soon learned that the tires gave a very hard ride...I think because the tire wouldn't flex as much as my Goodyears that I have bought for all my cars during the last 25+ years. Also, to...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

The tires were great at first, But after about 15,00 they became unbearably noisy. They were so loud I thought I must have a bad wheel bearing. I just had my car inspected and was shocked to find out that it wouldn't pass because of the tires, The tires only had 18,500 miles on them. They were rotated every 5K and wore evenly, just wore out. These tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the stock Goodyear Run Flats on a 2012 BMW 335i Coupe, with these and couldn't be happier. I was concerned with driving this car in the winter in the Cleveland, OH area. Although we had a relatively light winter this year, the times we did have snow these tires performed almost flawlessly. My wife has a brand new FWD Toyota Highlander, with a snow...  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 CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Fantastic tires. I always buy my tires from Tire Rack and review and compare tire specs before buying. Living in northern Ohio, handling in snow and rain is very important, which was one of the appeals of these tires. I bought the Continentals to replace the dealer installed tires. I've put a lot of miles on these tires, as I travel around the state for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

We had 56,000 miles on the OEM Goodyear tires and the Toyota dealer was pushing the same tires as a replacement. I decided to go with Tire Rack and the Continentals and I am really glad I did. These are quite, and really improve the ride and handling of our Prius. The Goodyears were hard, noisy, and not at all as sure-footed as these; wet or dry. We even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these tires to replace other Continental tires I had on my car which lasted 40,000 miles. Was pretty satisfied with them so after speaking with a Tire Rack sales associate, decided to stick with what works for my car. Associate and I agreed on Conti PureContact w/eco plus tech.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

Don't know what everyone is complaining about. I have met numerous Santa Fe owners ('13>'15) who all praise the car and these optional tires on the AWD Sport Turbo. Driven in some horrible snow storms, some with blizzard conditions and never had any problems. Ice? Scarey no matter what you drive with whatever tire. These held their own. Wet Traction has been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've had these tires for a couple of weeks. The original tires on my XK were death traps. It was impossible to move the car if there was any snow or ice. I mean even a hint. THe car slid or stood still. When it was time for new rubber, (24,500 miles) I knew I had to get an all weather tire.The dealer suggested Michelin Pilot all weather. Of course they also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

I have replaced this tire 2 times for a blow out simply by just driving over my driveway. Now I got a flat. For someone that has a 2 1/2 year old car with 11,000 miles goes to show the type of driver I am. I live in the city not out on some dirt road that has more possibilities for a tire to go bad. I was with my family on a day trip to Long Beach, CA about...  Read More

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

When I drove my brand new 2011 Outback home from the dealers lot in Chicago to east Central Indiana, I wondered if I had made the worst purchase decision of my life. I had bought the car with plenty of research, and in town test driving, but I had never had it on the interstate, on top of that day 1 was windy. To say I was directionally challenged would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Replacing OE ContiProCoontact with 50% tread remaining because of hydroplaning! TrueContact quietness will not impress an Odyssey driver though this is a relatively quiet tire. They will definitely be enamored and impressed with the smooth and controlled ride. This is an outstanding tire. The ride is incrediibly comfortable really smoothing the bumps in the...  Read More

Noticeable vibration between 65-75 MPH. Vibration present at lower speeds to a lesser extent. Noticeable vibration also present above 75 up to speed limiter on vehicle (98 MPH).
