I just got these tires to replace OEM Michelin's. The installing shop recognized the tire and said Great choice. These are my first Conti's. They were cheaper than Michelins, and so far better. Great deal.
Very pleased with smoothness, low noise, and dry and wet grip. I am mostly commuting in this car, but take the ramps fast. Contis are two times better in the wet than the Michelins, which slid around even when new. Dry traction also higher - faster speed on the ramps, no squirming or squealing. I have yet to break them loose.
