Initial Review, 6000 Miles on Tires
January 24, 2012

Fantastic tire. I've had the BFG KDW2, a set of Kumho (Crap!), the dunlop Direzza Sport Z1, and Hankook studless M&S on my Volvo and without question, for all-round performance the Continental is THE BEST.

I used to have dedicated winter and summer wheels and tires, but decided to downsize to one set and I don't believe I could have chosen a better tire.

They FAR exceed my expectations in dry conditions.

They behave as I would expect them to on ice, being studless tires.

And in light to heavy snow they plow right on through! Not with the same amount of confidence I had with the winter Hankook set but they're All Season, not M/S tires.

The Volvo SR is a heavy sedan and these tires make it shine! I was especially glad to get 245/40/17 a size that is not easy to find for all season tires. Minor rub on full lock to the right, but it doesn't bother me.

For the price, all-round fantastic performance, and treadlife gurantee, it is a total no-brainer. They're quite, tread is holding up very nicely and I've got my right foot heavily planted with the boost gauge needle pointing north much of the time :)

Get em, you've found your next set of tires! Fantastic investment!
