Follow-Up Review: 10,000 miles on tires
February 09, 2013
I'm still very happy w/these summer hi-perf tires. Treads have worn evenly and well with no increase in road noise. Trade off between ride comfort and handling remains outstanding. I have not used these tires for track use so don't know how they'd handle at the extreme, but i suspect the relatively soft compound may not handle the abuse of a relatively heavy car very well for very long. For normal street use, I'll be buying these again for sure.
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires

Only about 1K miles so far but very impressed. Took delivery of new 335i coupe w/M package and took off OEM RFTs before even leaving the dealer and put the Conti Extremes on. Extremely compliant without losing responsiveness. Ability to handle impact harshness is outstanding. Road noise is surprisingly very low for a high performance tire. Drove in downpour and tires were very stable and communicative. Time will tell in terms of how well these tires wear, but so far, I am extremely happy and would highly recommend.
