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 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

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 ContiProContact

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 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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

These tires are much better than the Continentals that came from the factory. The ride is better, quieter, and the overall performance is better. I could not find extreme performance tires for this vehicle, but have found these to be an excellent choice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I replaced the factory Continentals the first day. I had a previous Tahoe with the factory equipment and didn't care for the noise and the just-average performance. I chose the Michelin Defender based on the good performance given on my aging Merc E320. Even though an SUV tire is quite different from a passenger car tire, the same qualities remained:...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I recently received my Mercedes-AMG C43 order and it arrived with Continental ContiSportContact SSR tires. I'd already purchased Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (non-run-flat) for the car and the dealer generously agreed to buy the Continental tires back from me. However, they couldn't get the car in to switch the tires for a couple of days, so I drove the car...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I have had mediocre to bad experiences with Michelin Tires in the past. I was a little uneasy about buying these tires. All that I can say is that I have been pleasantly surprised! These are super tires. The entire Michelin Organization should be very proud of this product. They do everything extremely well, except my front tires have a slight slip on road...  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 ExtremeContact DWS 06

My 2014 Audi A4 came with Continental ContiSportContact 3 and they lasted for only a year (mainly because of my driving style). Then I replaced all 4 tires with 255/35ZR-19 CONTINENTAL EXTREMECONTACT DWS 06 XL and even after 15000+ miles of extreme driving, they are holding good. I absolutely love them and would recommend them to people who like to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

Got these tires at the same time I went from 225/40-18 to 225/45-17 on 17x8 lightweight wheels. These tires are light too at 21 lbs ea. Ride quality has greatly improved at the same time wet and dry traction immensely improved! No more wheel spin- these just hook up and go. Most impressive is the wet traction however- been getting a lot of rain here in...  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
