Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I live in Texas so the Winter Driving portion of this review is irrelevant for me. I will say that I normally drive with Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS tires, so switching to this tire was not a normal thing for me. I will say that my decision to give this tire a chance was well rewarded. The tire performed better than I had expected. While the Potenza tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

These tires are excellent in all conditions. They respond well in the dry and are quiet on the freeways. Handling in the wet is excellent. We had 8 inches of snow in Portland last winter and these performed flawlessly. I thought I had snowtires on the car. I even was able to get around in solid ice - 1/5 of an inch thick on the road. I could barely walk on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

After reading countless reviews, looking into costs, and needing a wet dry tire, I chose these. I currently run a square 285 set up and the traction levels are high. I noticed a slight delay on turn in, but bumping up the pressure fixed that issue . It's most likely jumping from a 245 to a 285, and wheel weight increasing by 10lbs. I live in Tampa and see...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

We don't have many miles on these tires, but want to share our experience thus far. When installing them I noticed they were very true, but took more weight than I expected to balance - average 2.0-3.5oz total per tire. They did balance perfectly though.We noticed instantly they were much smoother and quieter than the Nitto Crosstek tires they replaced, with...  Read More

Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part 2)

As I mentioned in my previous blog, "Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part 1)", the Honda CR-V has grown from a relatively small SUV when it was first introduced to the civilized mid-size crossover vehicle that it is today. As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheel size.  In this follow-up post, I will cover recommended tires for the third-, fourth- and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is my second set of these tires, They are better than advertised in wet conditions, they are very good in the dry with one exception I can still spin a tire off the line on acceleration (I'm sure the FWD torquey diesel and low 1st gear ratio DSG tranny contribute too). I drive hard and fast and have been very pleased with the tires and the VW ability to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Just completed San Francisco-Cape Cod run on which I ran into some very heavy rain -- at 80 mph the tires were superb. Otherwisem happy with them all around.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

I bought these Tires for my 97 Corvette fun/track car. So far I've only driven them on the streets, but they are grippy, quiet, and predictable.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Came from PS2 with 225/40-18 front and 285/30-18 rear to thes Pilot Super Sport with new rear size of 265/35-18. The PS2 were too pricy just for the Porsche N rating so I compromised with the Super Sport and less wide rear tire. Truth is other than looks of the rear tires mainly from a side higher profile I did not compromise. These tires are rock solid,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

After total dissatisfaction with continental USA I switched brands. I have Pirelli Sotozero III on OZ MSW wheels so the choice was easy. The tires came mounted and balanced in a matter of days ready to mount! Understanding that you will give up 5% of performance from UHP tires but get 100% wet traction is a must for our 1 car family. Road noise is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

This is my 4th set of this tire and until they develop a better tire this is the best on the market. within my family I have recommended these tires and 13 vehicles will never look back at Goodyear or Bridgestone or Michelin tires. These tires will keep you feeling secure in even the most adverse driving conditions.   Read More

Best Tires for Honda CR-V (Part One)

Over five generations, the Honda CR-V has grown from a boxy, small SUV when first introduced in 1997, to the mature and civilized mid-size crossover vehicle that it is today. As the vehicle has grown, so has it's tire and wheelsize. 15-inch wheels and tires were used on the first-generation, while new CR-Vs roll off of the assembly line on 17-inch or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact SSR

These are my first experience with run flats and I only have them on my car because BMW seems to sell all their cars with run flats. So these tires are accumulating a lot of negatives with me. The are hard/harsh and extremely loud. At times it literally sounds like a helicopter is under my car. In terms of being hard it feels like the car is on plastic...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Reading the review, I concluded this was the best bang for the buck for my daily driver. Handling performance under both wet and dry conditions is superb and it keeps you in contact with the feel of the road. The grip is excellent on twisting back roads out on the countryside. The only thing unexpected was the amount of road noise. I know they're all-season,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Bought these tires based on wet performance reviews. South Florida climate demands good wet and dry traction, and these tires deliver. I also wanted a smooth, quiet ride for the Town Car, and BONUS! these were also highly rated for comfort. Much more quiet and smooth than the Goodyear tires they replaced, MUCH longer tread life, far better traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Completely changed our Mini Cooper S 2012. Ride is much easier, not loud or bone-shattering anymore, and the steering feels way more safe and responsive. Tires are loads better in the rain, not spinning as much as the continental runflats that came with the car. No one who has driven the car has been able to get the tires to chirp. Previously, the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I've purchased two sets of two Extreme DWS in the last couple years. While decent on dry/wet, and quite good in snow/ice (compared to similarly priced alternatives), the treadwear and subsequent noise has been awful. Both sets of tires were installed by different mechanics, in different states, but both got feathered, showed uneven wear (middle wear) despite...  Read More

These tires came OE on our 2015 Buick Encore and they are very noisy. As always, stock OE tires are garbage. We'll Probably buy another brand when we have to replace them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I've had my BMW 330 for 10 years and the only thing I don't love about it are its run-flat tires. It came with Bridgestone Turanza which were rough and noisy and lasted 30,000 miles. Then I had 2 sets of Continental Conti Pro, each lasted 40,000 miles and they were somewhat better than the Turanza. But I always hated the harshness and the way the run-flat...  Read More
