Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I recently purchased a 2015 Scion tC, certified pre-owned, with 32,950 miles. At 32,917, the dealership installed 4 new tires, which are the Continental PureContacts, as well as a 4 wheel alignment. After purchasing the vehicle in Houston, TX, I proceeded to drive the car home, which is about 4.5 hours. Once I got past the city onto smoother roads, I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I now have 13,000 miles on these tires including one Maine winter driving. These were the highest rated tires on this site for my car and I must say that I am very disappointed. First, as soon as I put them on the car I noticed that they make quite a bit of noise when turning and they still do, they are otherwise pretty quiet. Their performance in the snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

This was a replacement for Michlin. Acceptable, however not as good ride or noise level. They appear to be wearing well. Biggest drawback, several times a week I have to travel down a mile long gravel road. These tires retain rocks and stones that make up such roads. Even 80 MPH on the interstates does not dislodge them. This is a disservice to fellow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

Overall these are great tires. They do really well in every condition I have driven in. In had one thing I started to hydroplane really bad but I feel like that was due to driving too fast and a poorly dressing road. My only complaint is the weight of the tires compared to others. It definitely takes arrest from the car's acceleration, braking and fuel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Best tires Iv'e ever had and there have been many brands tried over the years on many different vehicles. I wish they made sized for wife's 2009 Camry Hybrid. Her car as typical with a Camry rides very soft and smooth and now like a limo with Pirelli P7's on it but only have so-so wet traction. These Conti True Contacts however, do everything well. It's an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Had my last set of DWS for a wonderful 72K miles before I was asked to replace them. Then from TireRack, I saw DWS was no longer No. 1 in the same category (September) but the GoodYear Eagle F1. So I decided to give GoodYear Eagle F1 a try. Bad idea! After 3 weeks and 1200 miles, I called it a quit because the road noise was much higher than DWS and also my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I was concerned about buying these non Porsche approved tires so I decided to call Porsche and ask how they approve tires and why these are not approved. I didn't get very far as they just said we test tires and then they are approved. Regardless, my concerns were unfounded. My SUV had Continentals that I replaced at 25,000 miles and then I needed new tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

I have these tires on my G8. I am a pretty aggressive driver, and I do take the car to track events. The engine has been modified with a stage 2 cam, long tube headers, intake and custom tuning. I would estimate the car weighs 4100lb without me in it, and probably makes about 400hp at the wheels. I competed in this year's One Lap of America, and had the...  Read More

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 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
