Initial Review, 5,000 Miles on Tires
These were installed on a new, stock Corolla LE, on Sport Edition alloys, purchased mounted and balanced from Tire Rack. They were "Plus 1" size vs. the OE tires and steel wheels. This size is an option on the Corolla. The difference between these Continentals and the OE Continental all-season touring tires is unbelievable. Yes, they are a bit more harsh, and slightly noisier, but I estimate that these tires work better in the wet than the OE tires do in the dry. My only complaint is a pronounced low-speed (20 mph) "growl" when coming to a stop. Of course, they are completely unsafe for winter use, but I purchased a set of Michelin Ice winter tires for the OE wheels. As you can tell, I'm not a fan of all-season tires, which I feel are a very poor compromise. These tires do not turn a Corolla into a sports car, but I'm now very comfortable driving the car with these tires in all types of three-season conditions.
