Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology
Follow-Up Review: 10,500 miles on tires
At a little over one year and 10,000 miles, feel pretty good about this tire. Handling, traction in snow, noise level and comfort all good enough.<br><br>Measured tread depth stands at 9/32, down from 11/32 new. This is a quicker than I'd like, but won't be a problem this winter and hopefully one more. Once these wear below 7/32, I'll probably get some dedicated winter tires on my stock wheels while I 'finish' these during dry months. Treadwear remains to be be seen, but guessing this is a 3 or 4 year tire for me.<br><br>Still, a good value and nice fit for an SUV.
Initial Review: 2,300 miles on tires
Will go ahead and post my initial impressions:
These Contis immediately improved the overall ride over my previous tires (Uniroyal Tiger Paws). I've only had them on a few months but have been able to go through the paces through Idaho winter. Really really impressed with snow and hard packed ice road traction. Very confident in wet or dry handling.
Fairly quiet and smoothes out the RAV as best they can ;) I'm thinking this is an excellent choice for a small SUV doing mostly paved road driving. Will update again when I get some decent mileage.
