Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as many kilometers as I expected I bought my Subaru 2014 brand new and these Slovak made ProContact GX tires came with it. I am quite happy with my car but not the tires. Yes, the tires' fuel economy is great, OK for quietness, but after 60K kilometers (38K miles) I am thinking about replacing all of them as the treads are almost gone. Maybe I can keep it for a few months till 70K kilometers (44K miles) but definitely no more than that. I will consider Michelline Defender as it claims 130K kilometers and my another car has them just perfect. By the way, the side design (patterns and decorations) also can be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome tire Continental ProContact GX came original OEM with my 2014 2.5i Outback Premium. The tires have 48,000 miles on them. Rotated every oil change. They have just under 50% tread life on them. Driven on Chicago streets 10% the other 90% on the highway. Tire pressure kept at recommended levels per sticker on vehicle. The tires tracked true on the highway with zero steering play. In the snow, from just a dusting to 2 plus feet, they were awesome. From hot summer to sub-zero driving these tires always felt connected to the road. Tires went to the Colorado Mountains and through the deep south, no issues. My Subaru maintained at dealer for all recommended service requirements. I am replacing current tires with OEM for the winter snow and keeping the the original tires for the summer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UGGHHH!!! Had to replace at only 24,700 miles I have had too many new cars to count and have driven too many miles to say. I take excellent care of my autos, which includes regular tire rotation and checking the air pressure frequently. These tires were original to my 2014 Subaru Outback 3.6. I have never had a car where the new tires only lasted 24,700 miles. My kids have Hyundais and they have over 50,000 miles on their Kumho Solus KL21 tires. I rec'd no help from Subaru nor Continental Customer Service. I was told by Continental they only warranty replacement tires. The warranty on the same tire I paid for with my new car gets a 6 yr/65,000 mile waranty if purchased as a replacement. Does that make sense to anyone? Something is fishy. Are the tires substandard that are put on new cars - either specified by the auto manufacturer or deliberately provided this way by the tire manufacturer?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worn out after only 24,000 miles Tires came on our 2014 Subaru Outback 3.6L when purchased new. My wife just took the car in to the dealer for an oil change and tire rotation and the service advisor told her that they would not rotate the tires because they need to be replaced...after only 24,000 miles. This is my wife's car and she babies it and always takes it to the dealership for scheduled maintenance and tire rotations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing tread life These were the factory tires on my 2014 Subaru Outback 2.5i premium. After only 45,000, I have been told that I need to replace the tires. I have had them rotated with every scheduled maintenance on my vehicle, as suggested by my dealer. I am very disappointed that after only 2 years of owning my car, I have to replace a tire that should have made it another year or two.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Tires Came on my new 2014 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium. Approaching 45K miles on me vehicle after 2.5 years and am ready for new tires. Evenly worn on two of the four tires, enough to indicate new tires there. The other two tires have sufficient tread left. Subaru's recommendation for rotation is every 7500 miles, but I noticed a response from Continental to another review that suggests 6000 miles - so there is a discrepancy there. I did go 10K between the most recent rotation, which is my fault and probably goes to show why two of the four have more significant tread wear. The tires are quiet and handle well, but I too would like to have had more life out of them. I don't believe one late rotation is the main reason for such significant wear as all previous have been on time and logged. The discrepancy comes with whether to rotate at 6000 or 7500 as dealer service department recommends. Even then, would that keep tread life longer?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Tread life These came on our brand new 2014 Subaru Outback and we have just been told by the service techs that all 4 tires need to be replaced... at 32,000 miles. We have never driven this on any extreme terrain. Hoping Continental comes through on their tread life warranty because we essentially got half the life out of a tire rated for much more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Tread Life Tires were supposed last 65K. They wore out at 32K. I drive a 2014 2.5i Outback very modestly and am very surprised by the poor tread life. The tire life was so poor not sure that they were new when I bought my car. Worst tire life I have experienced on a car in decades given the type of tire.
