Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Very impressed with these tires. Purchased to replace Goodyear Eagle GT(not reccomended). Very confident and responsive handling in summer dry/wet conditions. Winter conditions are handled with ease on my FWD vehicle. tolerable increase in noise and vibration on textured concreate highway, but not terrible though.   Read More

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

So far I am extremely happy with the Continental Cross Contact LX20 tires. I was between these and the Bridgestone Dueler 422 Ecopia. Decided to go with the Continentals because they were rated a bit higher for snow and we are in Wisconsin. Just went over 28,000 miles and we have 10/32 on the front tires and 9/32 on the rear tires. Traction has been very...  Read More

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

I have had this tire for 8 months and driven 5000-6000 miles. This tire sticks to the road in the dry and is firm and confident in cornering. It moves water very well in the frequent heavy downpours of our southern thunderstorms. This tire was hard to make hydroplane even in standing water, when rains faster than the roads can drain. The winter traction was...  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

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

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 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 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

Fantastic all weather tires for my Summer (May to Oct) driving needs. Run from late Oct. to Late April and full set of Winter Ice type Snow Tires.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This review is about the DWS 06 but I've also had the earlier DWS on all 3 family cars. I loved the DWS but the DWS 06 does seem to be a worthy upgrade. Live in Massachusetts and drive to the mountains in northern NY (Adirondacks) quite a lot too. Absolutely no problem getting around in wet/dry/mild snow in MA - but I do swap on real snows for the mountains...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I finally got to test these in the winter and they passed the test. I'm in Western Pennsylvania and though the winter of 15-16 was milder than normal, I still had enough snow and occasional ice on which to test the tires. Extremely comfortable ride on dry, and I've noticed an appreciable savings in gasoline along with filling them with Nitrogen. Great wear,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I LOVE THESE TIRES! I'be been through Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental and Yuckahama, and they were all (just) Ok. But these tires are GREAT!I swap my tires every 6 months from winter tires to summer tires. (Hey, it's Missouri.) I used to look down my nose at anything that wasn't a (fill in name here.) I finally decided to give these a try. The price is...  Read More

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More
