Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love thes tires! This was my second set of Pure Contacts on my Volvo V90. Over the last 20 years I have had the opportunity to try a number of different tires on this car, and these were by far the best three season tires ( I have winter tires and wheels) I have used. The V90 is known for comfort and these tires complemented that style while offering excellent wet performance, good lateral grip on all the decreasing radius entrance ramps, they are quiet, and quite comfortable. They track very well on the highway. When I did need to use them in snow they performed well. I no longer use the car as my daily driver so I expect this set will last until age makes it prudent to replace them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time user. Pure Contact Continentals are my favorite tire for my daily driver sport sedan. They are quiet on highways and perform in dry and especially wet very well. Actually improve the handling and ride. I'm on my second set on my 2005 Honda accord V6 and also purchased a set for my wifes Kia Optima SX turbo. Their is one weakness. Snow. I leave South Jersey and never get enough snow to worry about! They aren't the best all season radial in the heavy snow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tires I commend Continental customer service for helping me get these tires. They run good, great feeling on the pavement. They stopped very well when braking. The only why is not a 5 star is the noise. It was good the first 10K then they became kinda noisy. Other than that is a great tire. Durable, I have several asked me if they are brand new, due to the fact they still look like that after 15K miles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect All Season Tire I was stuck for the longest time between the ExtremeContact and PureContact, but am glad I went with the Pures for my 2010 Honda Accord. They are super quiet and provide a comfortable ride. Wear has been great over the past year and they have great wet weather traction in rainy Seattle. I have no complaints and will purchase these again when they wear out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Conti pure contacts Bought this set as a luxury touring set for my 2015 tdi highlife. I had the winter contact SI and really enjoyed the ride. These tires are smooth, solid and I’m glad I got them in an XL. The tires are quiet and responsive, seem to hold the road well in most weather conditions in Canada.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great Tires at the right price I've been running the PureContact tires for nine months without a problem. I'm a Buick owner and wanted a quiet ride and good all excellent traction. I got both with Continental PureTrac tires. I'd buy them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific These are not the first tires I have ever bought. Not by a LONG shot. But they are unquestionably the best. Smooth, quiet and most importantly the shed water in the rain and do more than a decent job in light snow.
