Best All-Season and Snow Tires for Your 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions. The Jaguar F-TYPE is too great a car to store away for months at a time! Performance Winter / Snow tires will give your F-TYPE some grip on cold days and snowy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These are the OEM tires on my Subaru Outback. At 25,000 miles the tread is worn to the state of being pretty useless for hydroplaning prevention. I use snow tires for the winter so I expected them to last for a few more years. Will be shopping for something with a more aggressive tread pattern and better wear rating. If the Subaru wasn't so good with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I had a friend who is really into cars help me out. He had great success with these tires on his BMW. Not so much with my Elantra GT. They gave me very little traction for a typical Western NY winter. I ended up getting a set of snow tires for winter, and all seasons for Spring - Fall.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is basically the only tire that should be put on a high horsepower, rear wheel drive sports car that needs to be driven in the winter and especially in the snow. For 20 years I purchased nothing but Pirelli P-Zero tires and I always wondered why my rear wheel drive cars ----ed in the snow. The reason why is that those are summer only tires. They also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires have given my Cooper new life. Had Continental RF OEM. They were hard as rocks. Awful. The car was responsive but I could feel a twig on the road. These tires are still responsive and have effectively handled snowmageddon,the Maryland winter, like a pro. I should have bought an entire second set just to store and keep for when the original set...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I only have about 4Kmi on these four tires, but I am very happy with their performance, most notably in the snow we had this past winter (2016). They do seem to strike a good balance between wet traction, dry traction, rolling resistance, and road noise. I selected them from moderately priced tires primarily after reading other buyers' reviews. So far, so...  Read More

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 WinterContact SI

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 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 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 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 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

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 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

Said and done, this tire exceeds my expectations!This past Summer I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I purchased this tire to replace the stock Continental touring tire. I am so glad that I did. A month after purchasing these tires I drove 1600 miles from southern California through the Sierra mountains, across the Nevada desert and then over the Rockies into Denver. They worked perfectly. Low noise at hwy speeds. They handled the windy mountain roads like...  Read More
