These tires are terrific! Quit, stable, handles great on my GTI, goes through puddles at highway speed with zero hydroplaning. They really are excellent, and they are priced well. I will stick with these, better than the OEM it replaced, which was another model of Conti. I also put these on the Tiguan SEL, terrific tires. <br>My GTI has Eibach solid sway bars front and rear, and Eibach prokit springs, these tires suit it well, really great handling. Keep the pressure up around 39PSI, if they are around 32 they feel not as tight, it matters. They have no issues, and they hold pressure well. Great stuff.

Replaced original Conti contact Pro that where on from factory with these Extremes, a much better feel for less money. They feel tighter control, more responsive. But ya know as tires wear out and then you put new tires on, things always are better. But these do certainly have a tighter grip and steering response from the seemingly slightly maybe softer OEM Conti contacts. They certainly do feel great in pools of water at highway speed, no hydro planing that I can sense. Great tires, priced right. Even got the same ones different size for the Tiguan SEL 4 motion , which replaces OEM Pirreli Scorpions..Extremes from Conti are almost half the price! And people don't seem thrilled with the Pirelli Scorpions. I have always had good luck with Conti stuff, these Extreme Contact feel good. The GTI responds extremely well. with them.
