Continental TrueContact Replaces ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Continental has been on a roll! First, they introduced the ExtremeContact DWS which quickly became a customer favorite in our customer survey data. This Ultra High Performance All-Season tire set the bar for winter snow traction in its category while still being competitive with good wet and dry traction.  

Next, Continental released another winner with the CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology. This tire is currently ranked number one in our Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category. It's praised by customers for its outstanding combination of ride, wear and traction in a variety of weather conditions.  

Recently, the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology equaled or bested the top Grand Touring All-Season tires from Michelin and Bridgestone while coming in at a lower price-point. For more information on this tire, read "Continental's PureContact with EcoPlus Technology vs. ContiProContact."

Now, Continental is set to have another big winner, this time in the Standard Touring All-Season category, with the new TrueContact. This new tire is replacing the ProContact with EcoPlus Technology. The ProContact with EcoPlus Technology is ranked second in the category. Will the new TrueContact be able to claim the top spot?

Would the Continental True Contact 225/50 R17 94V (#15497280000) be a suitable tire for my 2009 BMW 528i. I do not drive the car hard and always switch to winter tires in Nov to reduce my insurance premium. You have given this tire excellent ratings. Thanks

David Thomas, The speed rating on the Continental is going to be a bit too low to recommend. BMW wants you to have at least a V speed rated tire and the True Contact is only a T. You could however use the Pure Contact:

Barry, Continental does not make the TrueContact in the 205/65R15 size.

Advice wanted on my my search to finding the softest ride quality tire for my harsh riding 2012 Kia Sorento SX . Down to the Michelin Premier A/S or LTX vs the Continental True Contact both with H ratings. Tire mileage not a concern as the vehicle is driven less than 4k per year.Snows mounted on extra wheels are used during New England Winter mos.

Ernie P, the lower speed rating of the Continental True Contact (T-speed rated) would give you a softer ride. Follow the link to see current pricing:

Looking to replace my Michelin Energy Saver on my 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid. I have one bad tire, so I am going to go ahead and replace two of them. I'm looking at either this Continental, possibly the Bridgestone Ecopia or Goodyear Fuel Max. It's a 225/50/r17... V Speed rating. Thoughts? Thanks!
