Rated 2 out of 5 by from CrossContact Sport has inferior Treadwear These CrossContact sport tires came in a new 2016 Acura MDX. At 29000 miles they are threadbare. This is a very common trait in all these reviews. Tires were rotated regularly, as all maintenance was performed. My son who is a master mechanic said a tire like this should never be allowed to have such a huge tread rating (80000mi), when they obviously do not perform to a figure even close to this. As far as the manufacturers responses to customers effected: “if you can show documentation for regular rotation, Every 6K mi... we’ve moved twice, ...and I don’t think most people keep this on hand. I did not see that specially in our documentation we received with the Acura! Poor way to back such overstated claims for any tire!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tires These tires came on my Porsche Cayenne 2014 (DOP: 12/2013), I replaced two in 2016 due to tread at over 60,000 miles. I'm replacing the other two tires this month (09/2017), due to treadwear. These tires ride smoothly. I always receive compliments on my vehicles ride. This has a great deal to do with the type of vehicle as well as the quality of tires. Nice and stable at high speeds as well as providing confidence on those wet, water soaked street days. I ride with these with confidence.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very very poor thread These tires came with brand new Audi Q5 vehicle, I drove barely over 30k miles with normal driving (1 driver) and when I went to Audi service the agent mentioned the threads are now 3' and the traction during wet conditions was poor. I had regular maintenance completed at the dealership every year including tire rotation. Now the dealership people are suggesting to replace tires. I said, I just drove only 32k miles and I asked them that I need to replace tires and they said YES.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replaced two already! Bought a new car (Tesla) in April 2017. These tires came standard with the vehicle. I had to replace 1 rear tire after only 3 months (July), the other rear tire after 5 months (September). There is very little tread wear, and I have 7,000 miles on the car. Both times the tire had a nail/screw stuck in it... and was not repairable. I have been told there is no road hazard warranty for Continental tires that come on a new vehicle. grrr

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Tread Life These tires came with our brand new vehicle, which only had 9 miles on it when we drove it off the lot and they already need to be replaced at barely over 30k miles with normal driving and the traction during wet conditions was poor even closer to the 20k mile mark. We have had regular maintenance completed at the dealership for the entire year we have had the vehicle, including tire rotation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor wear OEM tires on 2015 Mercedes ML350. Both a tire dealer and my MB service manager say I need new tires and I just hit 30,000 miles. You can see the wear around the edges very clearly. I monitor my tire pressure regularly and get service at the MB dealer. This is the least amount of miles I have ever gotten on a new car. I wish Mercedes would put something better on their cars instead of Continental.
