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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

Coming from a set of the ExtremeContact Sport DW that had lasted 22,000 miles, I went with these newer editions primarily for comfort and durability. I mostly drive my R8 like an old man and commute around in it, but I do take it once in a few months to the local mountains for fun.The old Sport DW tires were truly outstanding. I have driven the car across...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

I changed tires recently, because of hail, sleet, heavy snow, and ice on 2 recent trips. I was not happy with my stock tires performance. Since that time, I have driven in the same conditions again through Colorado, Utah, New Mexico California, and Texas. I also have beenoff-road in Arizona, and Colorado. This is the best set of tires I have ever used for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

4000 miles in, nothing bad to say about these tires yet. They haven't seen a winter yet, so snow and ice ratings weren't answered. Definitely quiet and smooth riding.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these as replacements for the OEM Kumhos that came with my car... The Kumhos were ok as long as it wasn't too wet out. They were horrible in the snow... but these Continental PureContacts were very highly rated and that turned out to be true.This is a fantastic tire - great traction in the rain and light snow... and quiet as well. These are a bargain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I really like these tires. We have a lot of days where the temperatures are below freezing at night and warm in the afternoons, so I had to go to all weather tires. They don't track as well as switching between summer and winter tires, but these tires are a good compromise. I was wearing out my winter tires quickly when the weather got warm in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

To date, I think these Michelins are a very comfortable high-performance tire with excellent wet-weather traction. I I don't have enough miles or weather on them to evaluate longevity or snow performance, but I have driven them in dry and wet highway conditions, and they are very smooth-riding, have great wet and dry traction, and impart confidence in their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

My original street tires were worn out in the mountains of NorCal. They served me well, but they were street tires, and on a dry summer day made for some spirited tight corners on the sierra nevada roads. The problem is, I needed something to get me to the mountains during winter,and the stock tires didn't do it for me. Fast forward and I move to Michigan....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I have about 22-23k on this DriveGuard tires, and I can honestly say they are THE BEST tires I've ever owned. This car came with Continental tires from the factory, and they worked, but didn't do anything specially great. I would consider them a middle of the road tire. Since then I had a set of Goodyear's which had a good price, but were really sub standard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is a dream tire from the low rolling resistance which gives good gas mileage to the outstanding wet dry and snow performance. I have yet to encounter conditions where I had anything but the highest reliance on the handling of these tires and they have come through like a champ in all road conditions I have encountered and all weather be it rain turning...  Read More

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

Although we have had these tires a relatively short time, in Colorado late winter and spring it isn't difficult to find a myriad of conditions. We live in a rural area but the wife's job takes her all over the front range. We noticed an immediate difference from our OEM Michelins. Pavement cracks are quietly and easily absorbed; wet traction after a snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

Put these on about a thousand miles ago to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler that had about 26,000 on them. They had approx. 10,000 left but there was some dry rotting around tread and a noticeable decrease in performance during inclement weather. Had a gouge from the side wall in the spare so decided to just replace all the tires and did not want to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

I want to be prepared to go wherever I need to go. That means winter tires and used to mean highway all season tires the other three seasons. All season tires were marginal on wet grass, mud, no match for ice and snow, and are even threatened by sharp rocks in gravel. I have sacrificed very little to have all terrain capability with the Continental Terrain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Installing these tires immediately improved everything I liked about my car. Replacing the original equipment Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP runflats with the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 dramatically improved the ride and noise - no more crashing over bumps that jarred me and scared my passengers. Regular road noise went way down and the tramlining went...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I live near Buffalo NY. We get a few snow storms each year, and the roads get extremely slippery and icy. Its only a few days each year, but you don't want to get in to an accident on one of those days.My wife bought a set of these True Contact tires a year and a half ago and as we approach the end of the second winter with them I am absolutely amazed at how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

So far so good - only 100 miles into my relationship with the Premier LTX but color me impressed thus far.I replaced a horribly worn set of Continentals with these. The Continentals were OK in a lot of categories - I got 50,000 miles out of them, and they provided adequate traction in most all situations; however, the amount of road noise they generated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Low mileage so far but we had 70 degrees in February, followed by 10 inches of snow and some icy conditions then rain. Theses P7s handled everything very well. In fact In the snow they seemed as good as the Continental Winter Contacts they replaced but with a much quieter well balanced ride. My Jetta Sportwagon has no sport in it's handling demeanor but the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

There is a lot to like about this tire, but unfortunately, that is outweighed by the tires' failures. The Pirellis are VERY LOUD (road noise is about double over the OEM Continentals that came with the car) and they offer a harsh ride. I'm guessing the sidewalls are thicker than the OEM Continental 4X4s. In some aspects, the car responds better during sudden...  Read More
