Initial Review, 2500 Miles on Tires
Bought these to replace P-Zero Rossos that wore very quickly and were very loud (although very grippy). I would rate these Contis as only slightly less grippy and they possess excellent wet weather handling characteristics. Although a little vague on turn in, the tire is very predictable under cornering loads. The area where I am a bit disappointed is in tire noise. One of the reasons I went to these was because of the comments about how quite they are. I find them noisy, except on the smoothest pavement (maybe it's because of the 285 rears that are so wide). That being said, the ride quality is superb.
