Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology
Initial Review: 20,000 miles on tires
February 07, 2013

I drive hard and roughly 35,000 miles a year. I went to repurchase the other Continental Eco tires rated just below these, as they were pretty good. Got these as the cost was almost the same. They are much better in rain/snow/slush, and corner better. Other tires were regular passenger tires, so dry performance is going to clearly be better with these. But the bad weather was substantially better. Both tires last much longer then others I've had. Only issue with these is since they are a bit stiffer of a sidewall then the other ECO tires I had, harsh bumps are more noticeable and louder. But I'm fine with that since performance is much better, less sidewall flex on cornering. I will buy these again, and will also be getting some for my wife's car. Great all season tire that lash noticeably longer then others I've had....General, Pirelli, and Yokahama's to be exact.
