Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Switched to the Conti's from PS3's. Not nearly as responsive, but now that I've put more than a few thousand miles on them, they really aren't bad at all. Wear is MUCH better and ride is significantly quieter, especially as the tires have worn. Performed surprisingly well in the few snowfalls they have been through.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I purchased this tire over a year ago to replace some 970AS Pole Positions. (worst tire in snow ever made even light snow). I am a machinist by trade and have made substantial modifications on the mostly stock EVO (except intake, exhaust, cam and programming). Even though I could burn these tires off in a matter of minutes they have performed well for the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! Continental has a home run with these tires. Comfort: The tires are much quieter than I expected for a high performance tire. They are no louder than the Goodyear RSA's that were OEM. The car is much more comfortable now over bumps. Before, I got a sharp impulse bump over uneven manholes, etc; now the bumps have a smooth flow with a lower amplitude to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

The tire performs very well when pushing the Jeep SRT towards its limits. Sometimes difficult to get the tires to even squeal during hard cornering. I understand why this runflat was spec'd for the SRT. It is not for safety concerns and runflat capabilities, but ultimately to take advantage of the stiffer sidewalls. Unfortunately the tire wears extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Excellent tire. Switched from Michelin to Continental Extreme Contact DW. Much quieter and better ride than Michelin yet very responsive for performance driving. Perfect tire for daily driver (comfort) and occasional track day. Tread holds up well. Surprisingly good in the rain. Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is my second review. I was waiting for winter to strike and update the performance of my tires. I am very pleased to say that I made a good choice and would definitely recommend to others.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I put these tires on a C6 Corvette and could not be happier. They have the appropriate speed rating for a 'vette and perform beyond my expectations. The OEM run flats sounded like snow tires. Was difficult to hear the radio at freeway speeds. To compensate for the tire not being a run flat, I bought a tire pump from Groits Garage and a plug kit for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I was looking for a tire with a good mix of performance and quietness. The snow and wet performance of this tire is very good. they are pretty squishy if it gets to be over 50 degrees though. They feel slightly lethargic on initial turn in but are stable and predictable in corners. Under moderate acceleration in warmer conditions you can hear the siping slap...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Just got a set of 4 new DWS for my Audi A4. Have about 500 miles on them. Drove them in the rain a few times and they had good grip. On dry roads, they were fine. Haven't had the chance to try them on snow yet. It seems like a good all around tire and very comfortable, but the Conti Pro Contacts they replaced were far more engaging in terms of steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I was stuck in the same rut as other Toyota 4Runner Limited owners with VERY limited replacement options or change tire sizes to 275/55R20 . The OEM Yokohama Geolandars barely made 35K miles and were extremely NOISY by 25k miles- so I knew I didn't want them so I made the switch to these Michelin LTX M/S 2. I am SO glad I switched. The noise, ride and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I bought these as a replacement to the runflat tires that were on my car at time of purchase. My driving is mostly highway with a few trips to the mountains a year for spirited driving. So far these tires have exceeded my expectations! Dry roads, they're great! Always very predicable, even close to their limits! Rain performance has been phenomenal, better...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

In a word: planted. That's how you feel when you take a curve at what would have been an unsafe speed when you still had lesser tires. I can't overstate what a great tire this is for the money. For less than $200 a tire, these are a steal. They transformed my Audi A4 quattro from a nice commuter sedan to a cornering beast. Cornering is now considerably...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I have never been a huge fan of dunlop tires, I have always found them to be mediocre at best. However I decided to give these a go for my new car which just so happens to be a front wheel drive v8 monster. I questioned my decision to use an all season tire on this car and not dedicated summer and winter tires, but given the expense of running 255's in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

These will be the 4th set of AD08s I have had over the years. I have tried many of the other Extreme Performance Summer' tires including RE-11s (1 set), Star Specs (1 set), and R-S3s (2 sets). (I have not tried the BFG g-Force Rivals because they don't come in the size I need.) These however are still my favorite street tires and I will continue going back...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

I bought these Pirelli Scorpion Run-Flat tires to replace the original equipment Bridgestone Duelers on my 2009 BMW X5. Early on, I'm extremely satisfied.I never liked the way the Bridgestones held the road and took turns. The Pirelli Scorpions, on the other hand, hold the road like velcro with a slightly softer ride. During a downpour, they performed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Awesome in the wet, much better hydroplane resistant than Pirelli P-Zeros that were 20 mm skinnier. Ultimate grip is about the same as P-Zeros. Go up a performance category or to Pilot Super Sports if you want more grip. Treadwear on the highway seems to be pretty good. At current wear rate, I am expecting to get 40,000 out of them with no track use and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These are the 2nd set of Extreme Continentals I've purchased. This tire is the best buck for your $! The ONLY complaint I have is the treadwear. I'm no speed demon, but my BMW is rear wheel drive and it seems that these tires installed on rear wheel drive cars tend to wear out very fast. Both my rear tires wore down to the bone by 15,000 miles but the 2...  Read More
