Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

My 2002 911 Carrera C2 does spirited daily driver duty as well as a few PCA autocross events each year. I have the factory 18 wheel option. These tires replaced the Hankook Ventus K112 that lasted 13,137 in similar use. After the fifth run in yesterday's autocross I noticed a thin white line of tire cord exposed on the Contis rear driver's side tire at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I recently bought a 2013 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe. It only had 8400 miles on it and it also had the original GY run flats. The handling, ride, and road noise were horrible. Today I had a set of Continentals from Tire Rack installed and it is a different car. Tracks straight (ie: no tramlining), smooooth ride, and negligible road noise. It is, in fact,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These are still the factory tires. They were nice when they were new and I have about 35000 on them now and the have dry rotted and one of them has gone out of round. I had them to the shop to get re-balanced and there is nothing they can do about it. there is still about 25-30% tread left on them and I am one to usually milk tires till there is noting left,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Just upgraded to the Contis DWS 06. Really excellent. Just a couple of weeks in and I've noticed improvements everywhere. Overall much less road noise. Bumps in the pavement on the highway and urban/suburban roads are smoothed out. These tires are great, made for the Autobahn, but just as good at slower speeds, too. The OE Goodyear RSA were garbage now that...  Read More

42,000 miles combined city and highway driving. Tires have 6/32 tread left and I will probably replace next summer. We get a lot of snow here and these tires have done well in all conditions.Wet weather traction is very good as well, highly recommend these.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

I bought my car brand new and these tires came on the car. I drive 1100 miles per week to work and I got the tires rotated with regular maintenance oil changes. I will not even consider purchasing any other tires for my car. I am very satisfied with the smooth and quite ride these tires gave me. I am replacing these tires after 100,000. The tires are not as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These pilot super sports are amazing tires! Coming off a worn out set of continental conti sport contact threes that I had a high opinion of. The PS3s are the best tires I have ever driven on. They are sticky, quiet and great in the rain. We took a trip from MD to Missouri and not only did they perform flawlessly on the highway, but they did equally great on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires in seven years. They are awesome. I still had plenty of tread life left in the front but the back tires were worn down so I opted for a complete set. You cannot get a better set of tires. I do drive aggressively at times and these tires hold true. They grip the road like summer tires in warm weather and maintain traction...  Read More

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

This is the 4th set of Duelers I have had. All have been great tires for the money...quiet, easy riding yet reasonably responsive and great wet traction. This set replaced Continental run-flats that were good tires but much harsher in every regard than the Duelers. The improvement in ride quality and noise level of the Duelers made the cost of an emergency...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Just got them and I can tell they are wider then my stock wheels and they are. They don't seam any louder then the stocks and I love the deep treads. Skip was great at placing my order.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

The area of which we live puts us on several different road surfaces from Dirt, Stone & Tar, Gravel, Broken Pavement, and Highway. These tires have performed exceptionally well in every application through Snow, Rain, Ice, and Dry surface conditions. The tires do not ride a smooth as I would have liked, but do ride smoother than manufacturer original. As...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I had to replace the factor installed Continental ContiProContact SSR earlier than planned due to the excessive noise and rough ride due to the uneven tread ware. I didn't want to drive my car because of the way it drove and definitely didn't want anyone else to ride in it. After reading the reviews on the factory installed tires and saw that most people...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I replaced the original run flats with these Extreme Contact tires and got 57000 miles on them driving on freeways, tarred and gravel roads in all four seasons including snow and ice in MN. Very satisfied. Rotated them regularly. Great tire   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I recently replaced the stock Good Year Eagle Supercar performance tires. When I changed to the Continentals, I found out that my wheels were stacked backwards! Some idiot had probably rotated the tires without paying attention to the staggered sizes. My front tires were 255/45/20 and rears were 245/45/20! Those tires lasted about 24,000 miles with fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Tires have been on for 12 months, installed July 2015. I have 18 staggered set up on my 2014 BMW F31 (wagon). Tires have been great. I live in central Fl. so these have been tested through lots of rain and standing water on roadways and I-95. No issues at all. Much better than OEM run-flats.The DWS06 were also installed on my wife's Audi Q5 3.0T, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

2005 Corvette Z51 I was looking for a smooth riding tire without sacrificing handling. There is a handing difference, the F1's are much sharper steering and better dry traction. With that being said, the DWS is a better overall tire, and it lasts more than 1 season. Highly recommended.   Read More

Better Fuel Mileage with Your Tires

With the tire being the only thing contacting the road while you drive, it becomes obvious that the tire plays a roll in your vehicle's fuel economy. This characteristic is referred to as "Tire Rolling Resistance". There are a few nuances to keep in mind when examining tires and fuel economy. It has been proven that as a tire wears, it becomes less resistant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Not cheap; but appears to be an excellent value for the money. Ride is quiet and really smooth. Less noise than I experienced on the LTX M/S and LTX M/S2 that I put on my '03 Expedition. These are on my daughter's'06 Pacifica, which is a much lighter vehicle. It's really too early to judge; but treadwear is not noticeable after 5K miles. Wet and Dry Handling...  Read More
