Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tire I have about 1,000 miles on this set and so far the tire is everything I wanted. They hold in dry and wet and has acceptable road noise. The tires they replaced were very loud on the road and the Continental's reduced that considerably. I have pushed the tires in dry and they hold a curve extremely well and in wet I feel little if any slip and ABS does not engage. The only thing that takes some getting use to is the reduced road feel. I noticed the tires felt "loose" on the road as I drove out of Discount Tire and they felt like they were wobbling on the road. After two weeks of driving I was accustomed to the feel and is not factor now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Ever Penny! I previously had CrossContact on my 2012 CRV (came with my CR-V), and decided since they did such an awesome job of wearing good ( lasted 60,600 miles) , I'd go with Continental again. I bought this tire,True Contact, as a set about a week ago, and so far so good! I could insistently tell the difference in noise, smoothness, and turning. Even the bumps in the road feel smoother. As far as fuel efficient, I have notice my MPG has been in the 32-34 range. Before with old tires it was 26-30, it is more, than what I was getting. Overall, I am very please with this tire! Looking forward, to putting more miles on these tires!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely quiet, sure footed, great handling. I bought four True Contact tires a little over a year ago. Installed them on a 2009 Honda CR-V LX. The LX is a very noisy vehicle, road and tire noise specifically. After installing the True Contact tires I thought I was driving a different car. The tire whine and road noise was all but eliminated over the OEM Bri""""one tires. Handling is improved, turn in and cornering is noticeably better. In wet conditions, driving and stopping is a terrific. I have put 19K miles on these tires and inspection reveals no dicernable wear. I don't use the tires in the snow, I swap then out for dedicated snow tires. As such, i can't provide andy input on winter driving. I love these tires!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from True Contact Tires for 2011 Chevrolet Equinox Purchased these tires (P235/55R18) to replace the original tires on the vehicle. The original tires were replaced on 10/24/15 at 24,567 miles, but could have been used for probably 6 more months. Replaced them due to rebate on these new tires and winter driving soon approaching. The tires now have about 12,100 miles on them and the tread is down to 5/32 and 6/32 inches. Very unhappy with the treadwear on these tires. For what I paid for these tires, I did not expect such poor treadwear, and I thought that the vehicle mileage might improve a bit, but I did not notice any improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tire I Have Ever Driven On.... I researched tires for my 2000 Mercedes S430 for several months before my purchase. I can not express how happy I am I chose the Continental True Contacts. I currently came off a long road trip and they handled wet and dry conditions superbly, they are so quiet. I had a major competitors brand on the car for the past several years and hands down these are the best tires I have ever owned and would highly recommend them and if I ever need another set they will be these. I couldn't be happier ... the drive on them is phenomenal, even better than expected. With this True Contact being an Eco tire my mileage on the trip actually increased 2.4 miles per gallon which I couldn't be happier. Thank you Continental!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around tire I’ve driven 4000 miles on these tires. Wet and dry traction is excellent. Dramatic improvement in wet traction over previous set of Nexens. I have not driven on snow or ice yet. These tires have nice linear steering response, great on center feel for a four rib tire. Handling is a typical passenger car feel, these are not bad but not high performance tires. Quieter than the Nexens ever were. I did not see any change in mileage better or worse. Overall an excellent tire with the best compromise that can be had for an all season tire. Would recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lexus should have these tires as their OE tire. I've got a 2011 CT200h that had the factory Michellins (gone in 25k) their other recommended Yokohamas (gone in 35k) and wanted a longer lasting tire. I bought the TrueContacts for my CT even though Lexus would not warranty them because I've had Conti's ME88's on all of my Harley's and they were the best damned motorcycle tires I've ridden on so I figured screw Lexus I'm going to put the best tire on my car, not what they recommend. I've got 2k on my TrueContacts now and could not be happier! These tires are very responsive, smooth rolling and seriously far quieter than Lexus's recommendation. My mileage has been good and I have absolutely no complaints. If you are on the fence, don't be. These are very nice shoes for your car.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Winter Handling Concerns I have about 15K miles on these. They seem to be wearing pretty good. Handling has been ok, but I don't drive on them hard. One concern is the snow and ice handling. I realize these are not true winter tires, but last winter coming home from CA to CO there was some snow and patches of ice in NV. My Outback which is normally very sure footed in these conditions got very squirrelly. I had to slow down to about 35 miles an hour on highway 80 and was being passed by mini vans and semis like I was parked. Just be careful on anything slick!!
