Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Michelin is Excellence!!! There is no better on road tire unless you live in Snow Country the majority of the year!!!Original Equipment was Continentals. They are a B + Tire with 16 +/- MPH on my truck. Then I went for a Larger Tire Size, Toya Open Country (35 Inch Tire) 14 +/- MPH. This Tire is a good off road tire. Highway performance, rain and snow were C...  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

Best tires I've ever experienced. Excellent in rain/wet weather- never broke traction, even with my aggressive driving. Dry handling is impressive for an all-season tire and gave the car a whole new, sportier feel. Highway ride is super smooth, especially for UHP tire, and noise levels are suppressed. Better in every way than the stock Goodyear Eagle RS-A...  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 4x4 Contact

I'm about through my second set of tires for my Nissan Rogue AWD. Bought the same set as original and again, I got over 50K miles on this set. Very happy about the performance and wear. I drive in SF (terrible roads) and a lot of highway driving. Will buy the same tires for the third time, because, why not. They friggin last forever and make it through...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

The tires drive good on back road but on highway I feel a pull and it feels as if your driving with lots of wind. I am a little let down seeing all the great reviews on this tire. I dont feel I get the best ride with these tires. Probably going to replace them soon.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Perfect for my climate (Southwest) and conditions. This tire has surpassed my expectations as far as ride and noise are concerned. The handling is excellent and the tire gives feedback right up to the point of breakaway. A great tire and a very good value for the money.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

II have gotten 58000 miles on these tires and just had 4 more put on at Audi. I read some reviews and people complaining about noise and tire wear. I have no noise and I am looking to get another 50000 plus miles on these. Make sure you car is aligned properly, tires are ballance and proper tire inflation. I put my Audi through its paces and am happy with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I replaced my original bridgestone insignia tires with continental true contact at around 53K miles in my 2011 corolla. I bought these tire after reading very good reviews at tire rack and couple of other sites. Price is also reasonable as compare to competitors. After putting 2000 miles on these tires and driving in both dry and wet conditions I am happy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I want to provide my initial impression of the Extreme Contact DWS 06 compared to the Pirelli Cinturato P7 A/S Plus that I just returned after 1,000 miles. I replaced the original Good Year Eagle RS-A with the P7 and noticed a significant reduction in steering response, handling, and road holding on the highway. Shame on me for going from a HP tire to a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

Bought this car in the summer of 2011. These are the tires that were on it when I bought it. I am just now replacing them 82,000 miles later. I commute a little over 100 miles a week to and from work.(all highway)Had them rotated with every oil change.....no problems. I got my money's worth.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

The original Michelin PS2 were great except they don't last long (this was expected due to the high grip levels) but since I've gone through 2 pairs of rears this is becoming quite an expensive replacement. The Conti's are almost 1/2 the price so I had to give them a try. In terms of wet traction they are on par or better than the Michelins, in terms of dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Haven't driven in any snow yet, but dry and wet traction are awesome with this tire. Wet traction it feels like I'm driving on dry pavement still. I can't comment on wear yet either as these tires are pretty new. They are also much quieter than my old tires (Dunlop SP Sport Signature) and the ride is very comfortable. Overall these tires are pretty awesome....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My northern Virginia commute is 150 miles round trip per day. All but about 5 miles of that is highway.This is a great tire. This Conti was bought primarily for wet road traction, and it has performed magnificently under those conditions. There has never been a time when grip in the rain was a concern. These tires have run on roads with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

It took only 39,000 very easy miles to get to the wear bars on these OEM fitment Conti tires. If there was a trade for the poor tread life that would be one thing but there is little to redeem these tires in my humble opinion. I find the directional stability to be poor, the wet weather handling only average, dry weather handling below average, and the road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Based on the Tire Rack tests and reviews, I knew this tire wasn't going to be as stiff and responsive as some of the others in it's category, but that was a trade-off I made (since MazdaSpeed 3 has a stiff suspension), and not disappointed. Ride is more comfortable. Turn in is a little vague (relative to this category), and some minor corrections are needed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

Came with the van and I got over 70,000 miles on the set before picking up a metal shard. I pull a 2400 pound trailer with the van and the tires have not shown and extra wear pattern. I rotate them every 10,000 miles. I keep the pressure at 34PSI in all tires. I have no complaints with these tires. If I was not pulling a trailer all over the Midwest I would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! What a significant upgrade over my Mercedes' OE ContiProContact tires. Smoother riding, quieter running, outstanding wet road traction (critical in our frequent Florida summer thunderstorms) and less expensive as well. Other purchasers report excellent snow/ice traction and good tread life as well. The former is irrelevant to me given where I live, and...  Read More

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

Best tire I have ever owned! I am a freak about reading reviews and shopping before I buy. I would have bought the Continentals instead had I not seen a few new reviews right before I purchased. Those pearls of wisdom led me to the right tire for my car. I know this may sound like an infommercial but I swear these have been the quietest, smoothest, best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

On my 2016 Honda CRV, I replaced my OEM Continental tires with these Bridgestone Dueler 422 Ecopia in the same 225/65/17 size. The Ecopia tires are much more compliant (aka softer feeling over bumps) at my preferred 38psi. I can also feel less rolling resistance with these tires. They also have more grip, less sidewall flex and are much quieter than the...  Read More
