Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than the previous Michelin's I purchased this set of Continental's based on the reviews posted on the web. Sure am glad I did. They are much quieter than the Michelin's they replaced and, to date, they appear to be wearing much better too. The ride is smooth and comfortable. The cornering is a tad soft, but okay if your speed is adjusted to correct. Breaking is perfect. Wet driving has been amazing. The only negative I could find is ice and snow driving. Just okay in the snow. So-so on icy roads. Still, all facts considered, one of the best tires I have ever owned in my 45+ years of vehicle ownership. If these ever do decide to wear out, I will definitely purchase another set of Continental's, ones more designed for snow and Ice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice tire, POOR Treadwear These were OEM on our 2016 MDX. They ride fine and work well in both dry and wet conditions (never been in snow). However, with 33,000 miles they are at 2.5 to 3/32 tread remaining. They have no tread life warranty. 33K is pretty sad for a family grocery getter. These are the second most expensive tire available for the MDX, yet the only one without a tread wear warranty. The other highly rated tires only seem to go about 30K as well, but with a 60K warranty there is some monetary help available on the other end. While a good tire, they are VERY expensive to own.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great Rain and Snow Tire I have had these tires on my 2017 and now 2018 Mercedes GLE and the tires have been pretty good overall. They are exceptional in rain and as I encountered last weekend pretty good on snow and ice as well. The only negative I have is that the tire doesn’t have much traction on dry tarmac, even though it has Sport in the name. But it’s a great allrounder with the only trade-off being summer performance. If you live in a warmer climat I wouldn’t recommend this tire but I’d you life in an area we’re weather changes a lot this tire is perfect to you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quility Warranty on this tier advertised to give 50,000 to 60,000 miles, my vehicle has only 25,000 and I already see a problem. With regular city driving the longest trips have been to McAllen Texas about 3 to 4 since we purchased the vehicle; I have personally rotated the tires 4 times, I try to do it twice a year. Not happy at all with what I see happening with the tires, I see cracks and looks like pieces of rubber are coming off. I hope Continental do something about it, before we have a real problem or fatality in my or someone’s family.

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.
