Follow-Up Review: 9,500 miles on tires

I wrote a negative review earlier but found out that the tires were not the problem. The noise and roughness I was experiencing was coming from my right front hub assembly. I changed it and the tires ride smooth and quiet. Good tire and worth the purchase. 2004 Lincoln LS

I don't usually write reviews but was compelled to warn others truthfully. These tires look good on my LS but they are the worst tires I have ever purchased. They are very, very loud and the ride is really rough. My worn out Michelins had a better ride and sound than these new Continentals. I am not happy with them and wish I could turn them in for a different set of tires even if they could be prorated. I really wasted my money on this purchase and yes they are that bad. This was my first and last order from tire rack. Saving a little money was not worth it and next time, I will just pay retail and be happy with the purchase. The tires sound like I am traveling on a dirt road and ride rough regardless if I am on smooth pavement. It's terrible. Not sure how these respond on other vehicles but I do know these are probably some of the worst tires you can buy for a Lincoln LS. Don't do it and don't believe the positive reviews if you have this car. Your smooth riding car will seem like a tank if you install these tires and you will be sorry. They are so loud and rough that my son thought my car had front end damage when he drove it. No front end damage just not good tires for the Lincoln LS. They were loud from the beginning but I was hoping the noise would quiet down in time. Instead it got worse and the ride rougher. The only positive thing I can say is that they handle well even on wet pavement.
