64k miles on these bad boys (lots of driving for work) and they're finally losing traction. Only problem I experienced was a screw puncture but you can hardly blame the tires for that. No complaints from me. Sticking with Yoko's for now; ordering Geolandar A/T-S before winter. Cheers   Read More

The tires were OEM with my Subaru OB. With proper care, as a few people have noted, I've gotten 43K on them, with a 60/40 highway to city driving mix. They are rated to 40k. They are not off-road, or snow tires. They have been for me, a good quality tire and it does what it claims. I'm buying another set to replace them next week. How you drive also, effects...  Read More

This is absolutely the BEST tire I have had on my 07 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. I drive a healthy mix of city and highway, on a winding mountain highway. Good tires are very important to me. I have had a whole host of tires on my Highlander over the years trying to find the promised land of durability, handling and ride comfort.Prior to the Continental...  Read More

Replaced original Goodyear ZP on 2007 Corvette Conv. with 35K miles. Immediate reduction in road noise and comfort of ride. Sidewall is softer and absorbs noise much better than original run flat tires. Eliminated humm from back tires that I thought was just par for the course for tires with this much road contact. Paid more for independent garage to install...  Read More

Love these tires. What I loved best about these tires were their wet road predictability. Its amazing how far you can push the limits of these tires. These tires will be replaced after this summer and that's where my dilemma comes in. With a number of tires that have been rated better than these do I replace with the same tires, the devil you know, or go...  Read More

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

57,000 miles and these tires are getting toward the end of their life. They have been good, quiet and problem free. Pretty decent in wet weather, good in dry conditions and acceptable but nothing to brag about in snow even with an all wheel drive vehicle. I did slide into a ditch on level ground after tapping the brakes while driving slowly in very icy...  Read More

Wow. What a great tires! I was looking for my previous Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS replacement. These tires were extremely loud and uncomfortable. I also hated the cheap looking pattern. I decided to replace them with Pirelli P7 Cinturato and I could not be happier with my choice. Tires are so quiet that the only thing that I hear now is the wind at...  Read More

These tire are a great option to winter tires. It's all season capilitbilty is above adequate. Hydro plane resistance is decent however don't expect superior dry condition responsiveness. That's not what these tires are design for. If you own a cruising luxury vehicle and are in need of a quiet smooth ride with dependability during rain and snow then I...  Read More

I average 25K miles per year. As I approach 2 years on these tires (45K miles on them) I have decided to re-purchase them again. I will end up replacing them a little early due to the time of year rather than running them down to the ware bars. Mid January in middle Ga can get a bit slick, and it's not worth pushing them to see how far they will go. They...  Read More

I am one of the X-5 owners who suffered through a set of run flats that were on the car when I bought it. A year ago this month I bought a set of the Continental DWS's, but did not have them installed on the car until this past April.What a difference and delighted I bought them. These tires performed extremely well all summer. They are quiet, smooth, and...  Read More

I bought these tires in September of 2015. They replaced a set of Michelin Defender tires. I was pleased with the Defender but bought these based on Tire Rack's ratings. I have been only pleased with the Continentals! I will buy another set when needed. They wear evenly & well. They are quiet. They offer good traction all around. Fuel mileage was comparable...  Read More

Living in Minnesota winters have a tendency to be really tough. One day we will have -15 degree temps and it will be nothing but sheer ice, the next day it could be 20 degrees with wet heavy snow. So far the tires have been absolutely phenomenal! When I got them installed to replace the OEM all season Nexen tires I was expecting that the road noise would be...  Read More

These tire far exceeded my hopes and expectations! I honestly had no idea that tires could make this much difference and I fully expect I will purchase a new set of these again. Living in Seattle I experience rain on a regular basis and that had a lot to do with why I chose these tires. What really stands out to me about these are their ability to cut...  Read More

I purchased these tires for one winter (2015-2016) in the Denver metro area. Prior to this all my winter driving was in the California Sierras using all-season M+S tires. I was *very* happy we put on these winter tires for our time in Colorado because with them I had no worries about the road conditions and felt free to head to the mountains in anything but...  Read More

First off.... if you own a 2008+ Audi TT MK 2 w/ 255/35/19's (2cd generation style) you will have a problem with these on the rear of your car even though you are using the stock sizing.These tires are beefier than the ContiSport summers it came with . Once installed the rear tires will hit the tab that hangs down off the body inside the rear wheelhouse...  Read More

Bought my Boxster used with a new set of cheap Nexen 3000's on it. Had two sets of Goodyear F1-D3's after that, good tires when new but not great when used - balance issues, poor ride, noise, tramlining, etc. Bought these BFG's expecting they'd be no better, but they've totally transformed the car. Excellent ride and low noise, ultra-smooth up to 100+ mph....  Read More

The OEM ContiProContact's were getting low on treadlife and handled decently. I was waiting to find something until seeing the DWS06. I ordered them and had the dealer install them. It took a couple days to break them in. I tried to drive modestly for the first couple hundred miles. They felt great. The on/off ramp was slightly soft but not to where I felt...  Read More

Minimal issues in comparison to Hankook and Eagle tires i have also had. These DWS have outlasted all tires i have ever had. I had my car in Germany and ran them up...  Read More
