Bought these in preparation to sell the car, so a long term review won't be possible, however, my experience thus far has made me feel compelled to write this review. The day after these arrived we got a second major snow storm and got about 10 inches. Had to drive these to work, also pick up my little one from school. WOW, what a difference. Had Firehawk GTs on (with ~25-30K on them) and struggled pull away from Stop's and Light's (with the previous snow storm). Now, regardless of what the tires sit on at a stop, I can pull away NO PROBLEM! Parking the car is also a treat with icey/snowy street parallel parking. Tires spin some, but the car moves forward and back as I ask it to. Previously, car would just sit and I needed to 'help' the car with shovels and other hands to get the car moving and park it/get out of parking spot. Additionally, can now carry on a regular conversation with out feeling the need to talk loudly to be heard and can hear the little ones from the back seat with out needing them to speak up for us to hear.

One of the best tires I've ever owned

I have 2 BMWs, an '01 Z3 and an '08 535i. My Z3 was purchased with Conti ProContacts and when they needed replacing I went the Conti ExtremeContact DWSs. I have about 17K miles on them, and am much happier with these than the ProContacts. I do both city and highway driving, and drive aggressively when conditions allow. These tires have good adhesion in dry and wet conditions, excellent wear and they are quiet and stable at high speeds. For the serious enthusiast, the sidewalls are a bit too flexible and don't give the best feel at turn in. I forgive them this shortcoming because I prefer the softer, quieter ride 95% of the time. The 535 gets these shoes in a couple of months. I live in North Texas, so they don't get any practice in the snow.

My wife and I each bought a set of these tires to replace the Goodyear Eagle LS2 tires that came as OEM tires on our 2010 Kia Forte SX sedans. These tires made a big improvement in the feel and handling of the car in wet and snowy conditions. Dry handling is about the same as the OEM tires which was fine. Based on current milage it appears the tires will last the stated 50K mile warranty and unless something looks better we plan on getting the same tires next time.

These tires have been a great purchase. The ride and handling has improved in my Chevy HHR. I also had a vibrating problem while braking with the old tires and these have solved that as well. There are no excess noise , actually less than my original set, as noted by the other reviewer. He must have some other issue going on in his vehicle.

I've put about 500 miles on these tires on my 2008 Mazda 6 and so far love them. Dry traction is great, wet traction is unbelievable. I haven't tested them in the snow yet, looking forward to seeing how they perform. They ride very comfortably and quietly and were a HUGE upgrade over the OEM Michelin tires I had before. We'll see how the tread wears but to see an UHP tire even with a treadlife warranty blows my mind. If they last even 35k I'll be more than pleased. Great job on this tire Continental -- If these are still around when it comes time to replace them I will definitely purchase again.
