What a great tire. I got the full 50,000 miles out of them and probably could have gone a few thousand more, but winter set in and I didn't want to risk it. These Continentals in particular cornered well on back country roads and traveling at highway speeds around 75-80 was a smooth and pleasurable experience as well. On occasion I pushed them to the limits abd they never let me down. Wet and dry road traction was outstanding and light snow performance was great. I have tried nearly every tire manufacturer out there, and these tires were definately one of the best.
