Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

Cont'd from March 18, 2016...My subjective opinion is they really don't cause you more money. As a matter of fact, except for the hassle of swapping wheels and tires (in my case), it is a concept of conservation of tread life, like having a second pair of shoes. You get to wear each pair (first and second pairs) for a longer time-wise. In fact, I also feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Ordered from Tire Rack and shipped to dealer for install,05 driver family car, removed Hankook Ventus with 20K miles. That was enough for me ,noisy and they liked to break loose in any amount of Chicago snow and would lift up in the rain, this on an AWD vehicle.I bought DWS 06 because of the TIRE RACK review, the Infiniti dealer service managers...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased these tires just in time for a solid snowfall to arrive ... not unusual in NE Ohio. Some previous critiques of the tire indicated they were a tad noisy (they're whisper quiet ... certainly better than the OEM tires on the car) and also that they were not quite as good as some others for traction (they are - again - especially compared to the OEM...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Swapped these on to my car on Monday 3/14 and drove a little over 1100 miles between then and 3/19. The majority of the distance was highway driving, cruising around 80 mph. Noise level was very tolerable, and . Drove some highway miles in light/medium rain and provided great traction at speed. 150 miles or so on winding two lane roads through central...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been nothing short of pleased with this tire. My last set were the run flat variety and were harsh riding and noisy and this tire is amazing. I get the same if not better mileage and also the tire is super in the rain and deep water (as much as a low profile FAT tire can be) and is very good in Northern Illinois/Chicagoland winter snows. Some of my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Great tires! I have these on my car and my daughter also has them on a 2012 Corolla. We each love the handling characteristics. My wife has Michelin AS on her Camry. Both the PureContact and AS are truly excellent tires. To me, the Continetals give better road feel while the Michelins are a bit quieter. The choice between the two is a more matter of personal...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

The tires are the originals. I rotate them once to twice a year and keep the tire pressure as close to specs as possible. I have over 53 thousand miles on them and will get better than one more year out of them. I don't see why some of the reviews are so negative, other than the individuals like to drive fast and brake hard. I may consider buying them again...  Read More

Fantastic winter tires. Gave them a good test this winter and they never let me down   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I tried a set of cheaper tires they lasted about a year and were junk so I payed a little more for the DWS's and they have been great, my car is lowered with coil overs and is pretty stiff the DWS tires smooth some of that stiffness out but still handle sharp, they work great in rain and really good in snow during acceleration and cornering, but they don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Short version: 95% of the performance of a summer tire, 95% of the quiet and comfort of a grand touring tire, 90% of the performance of a winter tire. The best all around tire I've found. I have these tires on all my cars, a Chevy Volt, Mercedes SL550, Mercedes E550, and had them on my Mercedes GLK350.In Colorado, conditions can go from dry and warm to snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I have 16K of mixed summer/winter driving on the Continental True Contacts. Winter handling is great in light, medium, and deep snow. Rarely does Traction Control or ABS activate. These are the best all-season winter handling tires I've ever driven on. My previous tires were Bridgestone RE970 AS Pole Position which were amazing in the summer but virtually...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I drive 90 miles a day to work and these tires have been great. They have held great in spirited exit ramps and provide good traction in rain and snow. The only time they loose traction in rain is higher RPM in first gear while crossing painted lines, they are quieter than the tires that came on my car but not as quiet as I had hoped. I found them on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought these tires based high marks given by a national magazine and they did not let me down. I did drop down a rim size for my winter tire change which I suspect enhanced the ride comfort but most noticeable is how quiet these tires were for a winter snow and ice tread. I drive to snow country every weekend and these tires handled every condition I faced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I purchased this set of tires to replace the OE tires on my Hyundai Sonata. I immediately noticed a significant improvement in handling and ride comfort. A lot of my driving is on I-35 between Denton, TX and Dallas, a stretch of road that has been under major construction and upgrading for the last year and a half, with no end in sight. Lots of degraded road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

After 56,000 miles the S of the DWS has just started to show signs of being unreadable. These have been the best tires I have ever had as an all season tire. I usually put snow tires on every vehicle but decided to try these in the winter since I put them on in October of 2013. They have been great driving in Wisconsin.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

73,000 miles and still not down to the wear bars. These tires get their share of both city and highway driving. Plan to replace with the same tires. Not sure why others seem to have issues. These have been flawless.   Read More

I enjoy driving my car in a variety of conditions (city, highway, and away from the crowds) and have been really pleased with the ride my Continentals have delivered in all of these situations.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Had 19 inch Bridgestone HL 400 V rated on when purchased. Rode like a steel wheeled wagon with no struts. Very hard noisy ride. Purchased the Continentals and found out I have a new Q5. smooth quiet, tracks perfect, great grip and stopping grip. The roads in Colorado Springs are not so much. Wish I had them on my other car before.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Winter is over and it is good time to tell now my experience. First of all I'm on Canada, We have a major store here that claims that they winter test most things and in their winter testing Continental Purecontact were not listed. I'm a picky buyer, the guy that do the homework in forums, ratings web page and customer experience.I got them before winter, no...  Read More

I have a lowered C1500 Chevy truck, and I have two different sizes on it. I bought these tires and I am VERY glad I did. I mostly run these tires in dry weather. This truck is not a daily driver. I recommend these tire to anybody.   Read More
