Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine tire for the road Low noise at any speed and a feeling of stability make this a fine tire for on road use. With proper inflation pressure and regular rotation every 5,000 miles, one can expect the Crosscontact LX to last 45,000 to 50,000 miles. The traction in the wet is good enough to inspire confidence. As for off road performance, the only time these were put to the test was when I had to climb a grassy median with the low-range transfer engaged. There was some wheel spin but my '04 Tahoe made it up the embankment without causing me too much concern. I am pleased enough with these tires that I bought a replacement set when the odometer rolled over 100,000 miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful tire trust me i know! i am am a service advisor for a chrysler, dodge, dealer. i know tires. after a long time of looking into tires i found the continental crosscontact lx tire to be the best purchase for my 2006 honda ridgeline. I live in salt lake city, Utah and am a avid skier and moutain biker. So i spend alot of time in the washatch front in all kinds of weather and tempratures after many ski trips i have driven the tires in many inches of ice and snow and have found the tires to be exceptional in the snow and very quiet on the road. I also think they are better then the oem factory tires. i have sold people many tires and im sure after the 12 years of service experiance i would no a good tire from a bad one i think you will also find this to be the best mix of tire ( snow,a/t, wear,noise,normal driving, rain,) when i look at the tread it is nothing to right home about but look a the utqgl and info on low rolling resistance tires then buy the tires listed and im sure you will be happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tire Quite quiet and good ride. Installed on a AWD Chevrolet Astro and the best tire so far on the vehicle - the 3rd set. We only have rain here in SE Arizona, and they are very adept to the downpours we get here. Works well on dirt roads also. Have not tested emergency braking yet, and hope I do not test severe braking. Tread life is not too important to be in the big picture - the extreme heat here shortens the tire life anyway. US Made trumps all. Overall, the tire instills a confidence when driving the vehicle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rough Ride I, too, bought these tires based on Consumer Reports recommendation. I have an F150 4x4 with over 100K on it and have put about 5,000 miles on my new Cross Contacts but the Uniroyals that I had on my truck previously gave a much smoother ride. And I almost never had to add air to the Uniroyals but I've had to add air to the Cross Contacts several times already. Based on performance so far, there's no way these tires are going to make 60,000 miles. I guess I'm stuck with the Cross Contacts for a while but I won't buy another set of Continentals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tire Have put only 1000 miles on these tires since purchase but I am really impressed and know why this is 1 of only 2 recommended tires in this class by Consumer Reports.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for me I've had the CrossContact LX on my 2007 RAV4 V6 for three years and almost 60,000 miles, and I have no regrets about buying them. They have provided a comfortable, quiet ride and predictable handling throughout their life. When I had more than about 6/32 of tread depth, they also gave excellent traction in light and deep snow. In short, they have been one of the best tire purchases I've ever made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 50/50 Original set came with my 07 Ford Edge. Worked fine then became noisy at 23,000 as they wore out prematurely. Replaced with same (buy 3 get 1 free) which then lasted to 37,000.00 until becoming noisy again - some tread left- maybe another 4-5k if I pushed them. Nonethess for the price - they are a decent tire with good traction, performance and overall quiet - until they're worn. South Florida roads are tougher on tires I believe. We'll see how this 3rd set does....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever Bought a set of the Conti-trac LS for my 2005 Ford F-150 August 2010 and have put 10,000 miles on them. They give a great ride. Since have put them on my truck have driven in rain and hit area that I could have hydroplaned in but didn't. For this, they were well worth what I paid for them.
