Replaced original Conti contact Pro that where on from factory with these Extremes, a much better feel for less money. They feel tighter control, more responsive. But ya know as tires wear out and then you put new tires on, things always are better. But these do certainly have a tighter grip and steering response from the seemingly slightly maybe softer OEM Conti contacts. They certainly do feel great in pools of water at highway speed, no hydro planing that I can sense. Great tires, priced right. Even got the same ones different size for the Tiguan SEL 4 motion , which replaces OEM Pirreli Scorpions..Extremes from Conti are almost half the price! And people don't seem thrilled with the Pirelli Scorpions. I have always had good luck with Conti stuff, these Extreme Contact feel good. The GTI responds extremely well. with them.
