This will be the second winter season Tire Rack is offering the ExtremeWinterContact from Continental. I've had several chances to drive on this tire and feel it offers the best ride and noise comfort of the Studless Ice and Snow category. The Continental is also more responsive in handling and doesn't feel as sluggish compared to other Studless Ice and Snow tires I've driven in the past. A nice blend of everything winter.
Be sure to compare Tire Rack test results and consumer reviews to decide which winter tire is for you.
