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. Love the convenience now of website offering local dealers where tires can...  Read More

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

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

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). Went back to installer 3 times after initial install to re-balance tires. Cannot get rid of the vibration. Even went as far as having third party (Chevrolet dealer) to inspect for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

The Acura came with Michelin Latitude Tour all season tires. Within a year, the car had developed an annoying drone sound that was really noticeable after 35 mph. The dealer couldn't find the cause so we lived with the noise rather than spend more time at the dealership. We travel a lot so we got used to the dull roar, but when our kids drove the car, they...  Read More

Why Doesn't My Car Come with a Spare Tire?

Is the spare tire becoming extinct? With a growing number of vehicles in the United States being sold without one, it could appear that way. In fact, many drivers are unaware they may not have one until they need one. New cars, trucks and SUVs seldom come with a spare tire, wheel and jack kit due to an increasing demand for fuel economy and storage space....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH16

I knew our winter tires were due for replacement and intended to shop around on Tire Rack. We had the Prius in for service at our Toyota dealer when they called me and noted we were down to the wear indicators on our Continental Conti Winter Contact tires. (The Contis had been a good winter tire and I would still consider them) I agreed to have them put on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Beware! These General G-Max AS-03 tires have very weak sidewalls that rupture easily! I have a set of these tires that are only four months old with 3000 miles on them. I was turning into a parking lot and bumped the curb with my right rear tire. I parked my car and went to inspect the tire expecting to see curb rash. What I found was a flat tire with a...  Read More

Had problem with balancing and noise from first installation. Had tire re-balanced after 50 miles.Still have vibration and excessive road noise. Brought vehicle to the dealer thinking I had a drive train noise problem. While on lift with tires spinning all 4 tires showed out of round condition of tread. Very poor quality from factory.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I purchased my Continental Extreme Contact DWS in October from Tire Rack and I can honestly say the purchase through Tire Rack and the tires themselves has been the best experience. I have a 2008 Chrysler 300 limited DUB Edition which I honestly love. As mch as I love my car , which will be classic someday , it is rear wheel drive with all chrome wheels that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact UHP

These tires were on my 2012 Durango when I bought it. Unfortunately, I did not take it out on actual highway speeds when I test drove. When I eventually did make it out on the highway, I noticed a vibration above 55mph. The dealer said that two of the tires had shifted belts, whatever that means. These are the first Continental tires I have ever had on a...  Read More
