I just bought this for my VW CC sport and go it installed. Has ContiProcontacts that came with the car before and was happy with the treadwear of the Continentals so decided to stick with Conti. This is a very quiet tire...it feels like you are driving on a foot of foam. It seems a little soft while cornering and maybe that is just a matter of getting used to it. But when I set the car on cruise at 65mph, I was just gliding and a very luxurious ride. I haven't driven much with it but just wanted to leave some comments at my initial experience.
