A great tire for drivers with crossovers and SUVs looking for excellent cornering stability and feel. Excellent feedback to the driver's inputs and predictable handling at the limit, with a progressive breakaway. Although not necessarily the grippiest tire out there, the handling characteristics overall more than make up. These tires handle wet driving conditions easily with excellent hydroplaning resistance even in the heaviest downpour at highway speeds. Stopping distances are very short for those emergency braking maneuvers. Drawbacks? This probably isn't the tire for those looking for ride comfort or all-season capability (it's a summer tire; I don't use it in the winter). On bad pavement, it doesn't absorb imperfections quite as well as less-performance oriented tires and although they're reasonably quiet, they're not the quietest ones out there. But for driving performance and handling, these Continentals are one of the top SUV tires out there.
