Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Tire!!! I am a trainer for one of the largest tire install companies in the world. I had the priveledge to test drive these against its competitors in a controlled environment (dry/ wet)... as soon as I got back I purchased 2 sets for both my vehicle and my wife's. I can have any tire I want. This is a UHP A/S and handles like a dream. Response is perfect along with feel and grip on wet rains here in Florida. Plus it has an alightment wear indicators in the first 3k-5k miles, you can physically see if you are needing an alignment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shockingly Awesome I wasn't a huge fan of continental extreme contact DWS tires last year when I replaced the Pirelli's that had on Mercedes. This year on my Lexus IS 350 F-Sport I was once going through it again but this time I had to replace the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R. First off they are awesome tires but they were shot after only 12k miles and the cost of replacements was out of the question. So again I was back in the tire market after doing much research I found these Sure contacts and I figured what the heck the price is really reasonable and the rating were fairly high. Let me Just say that this far they are awesome. The best tires by far and the cheapest high proformance tire I be yet to put on one of my cars. They also look really nice almost similar to the Pilot Super sports. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tires Did a lot of research on tires, needed to replace to Conti Extreme DW's. They are pricey which came on the vehicle 245 40zr 19 I bought used, but a great tire, had a screw in one of them, tried to pull it out and air leaked so left it in and had no problem with at all.Looked at the Falkens, Michi, BF, and Extremes, went with the Sure Contact at NTB, buy 3 get 1 free. I love the ride handling and traction, very impressed. took the car to have it cleaned Vehicle 2009 Acura Tl Tech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tires with Super Grip It's been a little over a year since I purchased a set of these SureContact Rx tires for my '08 Maxima and I have to say I'm very pleased. Never have I owned a tire that provides this kind of superior grip in all weather conditions and they're quiet. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a touring/sport tire that wants a cost effective, grippy and quiet for their car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audi S5 Purchase mine on Sept 02, 2016. Immediately I noticed the difference of the predecessor tires. My car's steering was more agile and precise with precise reaction to turns. Faster take take. Quiet and comfortable. It was raining they performed flawless in handling and accelerating. I still have more testing to do so I'll have a follow update soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I love these in the wet. I love them in the snow. I even love them in the dry. Before these i was doing the OE summer tires and Winter tires, but these are soooo good i dont see the need to go through that. They feel 90% of the summer tires and 90% of the winter tires. I was not expecting that at all. I will get these again next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, Grippy and In Control! I got these on Buy2/Get2 deal at NTB. I've a BMW 330i and these tires are along with the high end tires which are Michelin, PureContact etc. These SureContacts are high up there if and when you need the tire to respond to your sudden brake movement/acceleration or prevent a fatal crash with hydroplaning. 5 Stars and Must Buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so Good! I just purchase 4 SureContact RX tires for my 2000 BMW 323 at NTB in Dallas. There's nothing like having a new set tires. So far the handling is great and the ride smooth. I will try to report in the next several thousand miles how the tires are performing in the various conditions and how they are holding up. So far so good! Cheers
