Follow-Up Review: 39,000 miles on tires
With almost 40K on these tires it's time for an update! These tires have performed amazingly well since I got them. Over the course of the last 38K miles the tire has shown off a lot of it's qualities which certainly would make me buy this tire again. It's gotten slightly noisier but the noise is much quieter than other tires new! The wet traction is still spot on and I feel safe with my family in my car even with FL downpours.
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
I just had these tires put on a 1000 miles ago after a chunk of my old tire came off for no reason. Bridgestone bought me this set with no hassle but that's a different story. These tires felt great after being mounted on the car. However they were a bit squrimy and did require frequent correction for the first few hundred miles. But after the 500 mile break in period these tires are SIMPLY AMAZING! Continental has made a great tire! They grip well in the wet and dry and as well give an EXCELLENT ride. The sidewalls on this tire are a bit soft and that does impact the steering response a tad, but nothing to severe. The average driver wouldn't even notice a difference!
