Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I got these on just in time for a 6 inch snow fall. I took the back roads to test the tires. Amazing!! Along with the Subaru All Wheel Drive, amazing tires. That little strip of Snow Tire they have, really works. I had these tires on an Audi A6 Quattro and was really impressed. I need good traction in the snow here in Wisconsin. Wet/Dry is fine...but, the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Tire model is an excellent tire for a All Season performance tire. I have purchased numerous sets of this model. Unfortunately the height of this time is not particularly comparable with my vehicle and 19¿ wheels. They seemed too tall and caused some drifting on the road, even when the steering was tight. I have returned the tires under the customer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I bought this tire to replace the Continental DWS-06 when I came to the South East, because I didn't expect to encounter any snow. I initially thought about purchasing the Michelin Pilot Super Sports or the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position again, but after driving a friend's M3 equipped with the Firestones, I bought 6 tires (2 front/4 rear) for less...  Read More

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

Bought a set if four about a month ago. After the trip home I noticed what I thought was an out of balance driver 's side front tire. I drive a lot of new , smooth as glass pavement. At 50 mph and above I perceived a small vibration driver's front. Had them all re-balanced at no cost thank goodness. Two were dead on and two needed .25 ounce weight added.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I'd like to start this review off by saying I hate when people review a tire when they haven't gone through the months, miles, and seasons first. 10,000 miles or less isn't even note-worthy of a review. stop wasting our time with these lame reviews!Now, back to my review after a current 26,000 miles and 2+ years worth of driving through ALL conditions here...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These are OEM tires on my ML350 BlueTec with 20in AMG rims. After 24,000 miles they are completely worthless in even and inch of snow/slush. Up to 10,000 miles they performed reasonably well in the snow with dramatic reduction in traction as the miles added up. I'm going to buy another set of rims and dedicated winter tires, I might get one more summer out...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Only 250 miles and no wet driving yet. These are the best max performance tire that I have owned. Ride comfort compared to the stock all season RFTs is far superior. Not as responsive, but the grip is amazing and what you give up in responsiveness is paid back 10 fold in ride quality. I took an off ramp at speed today that previously would have caused the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Excellent tire and value for the money. A quiet, comfortable feeling tire with outstanding wet grip and handling. The tires are new, so I have not had a chance to drive them in winter. So far, I am very pleased with my purchase.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

41K and 6 mm of tread left. No problems of any kind except noisy now, but these are on a Prius which are not know for road isolation. The S on the WDS is wearing thin but I'll try another winter. Winters in SW MI have been pretty mild since I got these tires but they have not given me any problems when it was bad out. The Prius braking system on ice is a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-80

These Blizzaks are the third set I have owned for my SUV¿s. I like driving on the spirited side since I like buying sporty vehicles. My first set was for my 2010 Acura MDX. The traction on ice and snow was amazing. I ran these for 4 years without an issue. Lots of tread left when I sold them. Currently I am impressed with the performance of these tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These tires came on my 2014 Ford Escape AWD. The tires are quiet and work well on dry pavement. The wet traction seems to be be ok. When the snow flies, these tires do not perform very well. I can handle the slight slippage when accelerating, but stopping with these tires in the snow is not very good. I have slid when traveling under 20 MPH when I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01 A/S

These tires are overpriced garbage. Starting off in the rain is a complete joke. The car relies heavily on the ASR and ESP systems to keep it in check even with normal driving. It causes the car to understeer very easily and braking is abysmal. Do NOT buy these at all. Save your money get some Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 or Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I want to say that overall, these tires are good. I would recommend them only if you can't afford a better tire for your car. I say this because this model seems to have it all on paper but it doesn't in real life. Nevertheless, this model is a Best Buy, in my opinion for average, non-spirited drivers. I would not recommend this tire for an AWD car like my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

Great tires! I have had these tires on my Volco XC90 , 2 Audi Q7 4.2 L V8, I even put them on my minivan. They have consistently provided great traction. I removed the Continental tires from the Audi and had noticeably better traction and far less road noise.   Read More

Don't Let Snow Stop Your 2017 Honda Civic Type R

Before my BRZ and MR2 Spyder days, I was a Honda guy. To this day, I still hope Honda will come out with a new Prelude. If not, the Civic Type R sure looks like a vehicle to tempt my interests.  Are you a driver that just picked up a Civic Type R yourself? I'm sure you're loving it, but if you reside in the snowbelt region, you're going to need winter /...  Read More

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

Tires were installed in November 2014 and a four wheel alignment was performed at the same time. First 25,000 miles were great and the tread wear was on par for the warranty life claimed by the manufacturer. Since then, the tires have become very noisy and the tread wear has increased dramatically. Tread rated at 12/32 when new, The tires now have 5/32 to...  Read More

The pros : great for traction in deep snow, light snow, slushy roads The Cons : Lacks traction when turning corners, Traction on icy roads was just ok, Tread wears down faster then competitor winter tires, Price is highThe Outcome : Overall its a great winter tire. It has pros and con just like all tires. I have used the Toyo GSi 5 , Continental extreme...  Read More
