Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Wow! Replaced original Michelin Energy LX4 with 60K miles on them with these Conti ProContact EcoPlus in 235/60R17. I could not be more pleased. They are so much better in all aspects to the LX4s. Better traction, better noise, better ride. My Odyssey feels like it is on rails and at times I almost forget I that am in a mini van. I would buy again in a heart...  Read More

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

The old tires were Continental CrossContact LX, they were good for the price I paid. I ran over 40K miles on that set, compared with the OEM Dunlop 5000 that I could manage 20K miles at max. This Bridgestone set is good in general, it did something better than Continental such ride, and wet traction, but it is not that good in cornering in the curve like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

The tread wear is terrible. I'll be lucky to get 20K out of these tires. All other aspect of the tire are great, but looking at the initial reviews 2yrs ago, (new tire at the time) and tread wear ratings, I expected 2x this life for the $. The initial reviews were misleading! Sorry, tire rack.I'm going to Generals since these are wearing fantastic on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I haven't put many miles on this tire, but so far they are definitely better than the older DWS. I can't believe how much more comfortable they are. They feel like touring tires until you take hard turns. Steering is more precise and quicker. Will update when they are broken in and I can push them a bit. I have had two sets of DWSs prior to this, so it is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I was very hesitant to change from summer tires to all season tires. I previously, has Conti Sport 2 on my car and found it the best all around tire for it. I tried everything including Michelin with good traction and poor grip to Dunlop with outstanding grip and worrisome traction. Wear on the Dunlop was very quick, the sacrifice for grip; the Michelin...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact TX

I have a 2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0. It came with Hankook tires as original equipment. Hyundai suggested that Genesis owners switch to these Continental tires. These tires have transformed the car. It already rode well. Now, it is even smoother. Bump absorption is greatly increased. Yet, handling is the same, which is very good. So, is steering feel. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Those tires replaced Continental snow tires on my BMW 528 XI. I love them, they are very quite and comfortable. they look very nice on the new M5 wheels as well. I always had Michelin and Continental, but this brand is very good as well. will buy again for my van.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

Overall a decent tire. Dry and wet traction in the on/off ramps and from stop lights/signs was pretty good. Gives a quiet ride with good handling. Feels like the tire rolls slightly when pushed hard. For most drivers this should be a problem and is a pretty good tire but not happy when there is some snow on the ground. Not very good traction for an all wheel...  Read More

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

I was looking for a high treadwear to get maybe 50,000 miles. These tires performed okay but did not get the Tread Wear I was hoping for. It was a good tire for 30,000 miles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

After about 25,000 miles of aggressive driving the front tires were pretty bald, but the rears still had about 75% left in them (front wheel driver). I could see a mild driver making 70,000 miles with this. The cornering abilities of these tires is something extrordinary. Pulling 0.92 Gs in corners without breaking the bead in a higher sidwall tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Put 2500 miles on in 1 month and no noticable tread wear (using depth gauge), not as spirited as normal due to over 500 miles in the rain, all but about 200 miles on 2 lane roads. Much better than original Good Years in all aspects. Wish was available in all season due to living in the mountains with summer temps dropping below 40 degrees in the summer.Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I decided to try these based on the reviews of how quiet this tire is. After just one week, I can attest to the high ratings this tire received for comfort and noise. I have been a rain shower this week and the tires were great. Dry traction is excellent, and the tires steering response is very direct. An added plus is that these tires are non directional,...  Read More

So far best set of tires I have ever purchased. Turn in is great, tires are smooth and quiet. Car handles better than when new. Fun to drive on these. I'm 68, have had lots of sports cars etc. Can't imagine buying any other tire but these. So far they appear to do it all.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

When I went looking for a set of tires, my first-ever snowy winter was fast approaching me. I had spent my entire life up until that point living in the hot deserts of southern California, but was attending college in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I had no idea how to drive in snow, and I couldn't have two sets of tires - one summer and one winter - because I...  Read More
