Initial Review, 400 Miles on Tires
September 10, 2012

I replaced stock OEM ContiSportContact after 20K miles with this set of tires and I am very satisfied with the purchase. This tire has excellent dry and wet traction then a stock OEM tires. It is just a tiny bit nosier but nothing that would be a deal breaker. What I immediately noticed that my stoppage distance decrease at 4 feet. Linear handling and stability is outstanding. Driving 65 mph in the rain, yielded no stress control of the RWD car. I am highly recommending it.
