Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good replacement for Bridgestone Run Flats I purchased these to replace Bridgestone Run Flat tires on my 2008 BMW. These tires definitely less noisy and handle pretty well. I noticed that they seem to be of a lesser height than the original OEM Bridgestones. Traction is also needed to be improved. My Bridgestones never squealed on payment. Overall, I'd pick Continental over Bridgestone to get better performance and save some $$$

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sticky! I've had these for about a year, but on a pleasure car, so only a couple thousand miles with a 1200 mile trip included. These tires are soft and sticky. They seem almost as soft as a track tire, but they're also smooth and quiet. Not sure how long they'll last, but they'll no doubt reach a replacement date before the tread is gone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice tire This is a nice tire but it doesn't last as long as the guaranteed mileage. I've had to purchase several over rthe last 3 years. They make a lot of road nose too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ride, Tractiom and Wear Well Have had two pair of Continental SportContact on an Audi and just bought a pair for our Acura MDX which had Hankook tires prior to Continental’s. By far the Continentals are a superior tire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth ride! I didn’t realize how loud and clunky the tires that came with my new car were until I got these. I will never go back!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wears so fast on my Tesla First of all, when Continental sends me a survey they should know what kind of tires I bought. Fix that please. I don't know the product line. This is a guess. Secondly, you're going to get more electric vehicles on the road, not less. My tires should last longer than 30k miles, which is what they're averaging right now. Otherwise they're quiet and hold the road very well.
