Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology
Follow-Up Review: 4,500 miles on tires
October 09, 2012
Ok, I sold this truck in Jan. '12. I've since bought a '11 GMC Yukon. I liked the Conti's so much I bought them for this truck. Since then, I've put about 10,000 miles on the new ones. Same circumstance as the Ram. I lots of tread on the OEM Goodyears, but, I hated them. The Contis are fantastic tires! They are so increadibly quiet and compliant in the rain or shine. I whole heartedly recommend these tires. At this point, I dont see any noticable wear, so, I fully believe they are capable of obtaining the posted 60,000 miles promised.
Initial Review: 500 miles on tires

Of all the tires I've driven on, Continental tires seem to be the quietest. They seem to be sticky around corners. My OEM tires were horribly loud. They made a noise around the same corners that these are silent around. Also, wet traction is very good. My OEM tires would too easily spin from stop. These require a lot more throttle to break them loose. I feel much more confident in the rain with these. At 30,000 miles, my old tires were down right scary in the rain. The OEM's were cupping badly, but, had a lot of tread left. They still hydroplaned like I were on ice. These new ones cut through the rain and, at this early stage, feel very sturdy. I haven't really had them long enough to accurately comment on the MPG's, but, I was getting 2 MPG better on my return trip from getting these put on. I haven't driven far enough to get an accurate read on them yet though. I also can't comment on snow conditions yet either. But, that's coming I feel. My OEM's were actually really good in the snow. I'm interested to see the comparison.
