Compared to OEM Goodyear Eagle RSA's on my Maxima, these have equal or better noise level and ride comfort, and noticeably better dry and wet traction. I could break the Goodyears loose in a dry parking lot just by tapping the gas, especially going over a pavement seam or bump. I also felt a lot of rear slide taking quick corners on slightly rough pavement. Not so with these Continentals. I haven't been able to slide the rear on dry asphalt, even taking an exit ramp at 85+.

I've driven in plenty of rain and 4-5 times on snow/slush (haven't hit any pure ice so far this year in Ohio). I won't say these stick like glue in wet conditions, but I definitely feel more confident than on the Goodyears.
