  • Ooh La La... I Love My Tires!

    Aug 21, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet; smooth; good handling
    Cons: None yet

    Summary: My 1993 Porsche 968 was making some serious roaring noises from the back of the car that I thought was either a bad wheel bearing or an impending transmission disaster. (The Porsche 968 has the engine in front but the transmission in back.) I took a look ... read more

  • Good traction, mushy handling

    Jul 11, 2012 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Good snow/rain traction.
    Quiet trires
    Suck up road noise and bumps
    Cons: Poor turn-in
    Soft sidewalls
    Excessive body roll

    Summary: I was deciding between the Yokohama YK580's and these.  I had the YK520's and was happy with them but not blown away.  After the discount tire person sold me on these I had them and loved them at first on the highway.  They are quiet, I ... read more

  • Good Tire, Marginal Life

    May 23, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent wet and snow handling
    Cons: Not so excellent life

    Summary: The Continentals are a standard dealer issue on many German cars. My BMW 5 series had them when I picked her up. In comparison I have also used Michelin and Kumho, Goodyear, and Toyo tires on my BMW 3 series. Of the latter list I preferred the ... read more

  • Perhaps the Best Kept Secret in Tires

    Mar 1, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: price, treadwear, traction, handling, rain driving
    Cons: odd sidewall design but you will get over it FAST

    Summary: I have had my Continental ContiExtremeContact (CEC) tires since January 2003 and they very pleasantly surprise me in every way. First of all you should have a little background on my car so you can see what this review is based on. The car is a 5 ... read more

  • Pretty darn good all-around tire for the money

    Jan 29, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very good grip in snow. Nice ride over dry pavement.
    Cons: A little spongy with fast cornering.

    Summary: I bought these as replacements for the cruddy bridgestone re-92's on my 2004 impreza rs. The reviews for snow grip and all around driveability caught my eye since i live in upstate NY so I decided to try them. After 4 months with them I'm not at all ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Amazing Handling
    Cons: Could be a bit quieter but they're not that noisy

    Summary: It was time to replace the tires on my wife’s 1998 Toyota Avalon , the Bridgestone’s that were on there had seen better days. I was looking at reviews of other tires without even given these a thought. I was reading a few reviews on the Yokohama & ... read more

  • Excellent high performance all season tires

    Oct 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tenacious traction; Tires squeal near limit rather than just letting go
    Cons: Strange sidewall design

    Summary: I've had the Continental ContiExtremeContacts for about six months now and have put about 11 thousand miles on them. These tires are on my 2000 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder. The wheels are 17x7 and the tires are 215/50-17. I bought these tires when I ... read more

  • An Excellent Compromise

    Jan 31, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very grippy in wet and snow, reasonably priced for a high performance all-season tire
    Cons: Flexible sidewalls cause vague steering response.

    Summary: Living in Southern Ohio, we get just enough snow to make a good all-season tire something to think about. Living in my neighborhood, with its very steep hills, make a good all-season tire a necessity. The ContiExtremeContact is the third set of tires ... read more

  • Great Tire, dopey name.

    Dec 23, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent all-seasons grip, excellent road feel, great looks, great price.
    Cons: Embarrassingly trendy name.

    Summary: Way back in March of 03, I finally had enough with the factory rubber on my PT Cruiser. (I bet you can find that review if you want to.) A study of replacements led me to these: The Brand: Continental has a lot of respect in certain ... read more

    Dec 23, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great grip, excellent cornering at high speeds, low price.
    Cons: Odd looking tread.

    Summary: In my neverending quest for good tires, I have owned many All-season and Max performance models. I live in a snowy climate and every November I have to handle the task of swapping to my winter tires by way of a tire shop or changing to another set of ... read more

  • Definitely a high-performance all-season tire

    Oct 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, cool tread design, tremendous dry & wet grip
    Cons: Sidewall design rather odd

    Summary: Living in Chicago with a high-performance car can be a challenge; you want a tire that keeps the car on rails in the dry but one that also bites through the snow. I've gone through several different so-called 'high-performance all-season' tires with ba ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good traction in the dry, excellent in rain, very good in snow, quiet, comfortable
    Cons: causes vague steering, soft sidewalls

    Summary: The tires on the used wheels I'd just bought were gone. I had just bought a set of 16" OEM used alloy wheels with Dunlop S8000 Z-rated summer tires on them and they were more than half gone. A few thousand miles later, they were almost bald. I used the ... read more

    Pros: Quiet smooth riding and braking all around.  Good in dry, wet and temp changes.  
    Cons: I like higher PSI  would be nice if they had a bit more rim protection.

    Summary: I have these Conti's on my 2009 C300 4matic and they hold like glue in the curves.  For anyone who has ever driven the Merrit Parkway in CT. you know the curves and extreme/ubrupt speed changes.  If you want to "keep up with traffic", you will ... read more

    Cons: not as responsive as the Sports, but do you want to drive Quick

    Pros: All-Around Handling, Low Noise, Good Tracking, and All-Weather Performance
    Cons: Even at their max pressure, the tires look a little soft.

    Summary: Purchased these tires Fall '04. Some of you from New England may remember our winter that year. Well around here we got 3'-4' of snow! Most of the time the snow was up to my windows. Once they pulled some snow out of the way I was off and running. ... read more

  • Great All-season tire.

    Oct 3, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Good grip, decent price, good handling, quiet.
    Cons: All seasons are known to chunk and break when racing.

    Summary: If you aren't planning on autocross or racing, buy some. They grip good all the time, and handle pretty well. They are comparable to the BF Goodrich ultra high performance tires I had before but don't stop me from moving in 1/2 inch of snow like the ... read more
