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 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 2 out of 5 by from Second set, same strengths and weaknesses Got a second set after my first lasted only 40K...they rode great, at the expense of 2 mpg less than the OEMs (M....). These perform the same as the first set, so good for manufacturing consistancy-- very comfortable, great traction, same fair gas milage but almost worn out at 35,000 mi (might get another 10,000). We are driving a Sienna minivan, very conservatively, and get all the recommended maintenance done. Does anyone get 90,000 miles from these? I'm not convinced of the value here, given the short service life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride, comfortable and sure grip My 2014 Honda CRV only had 9,700 miles on it when I was so feed up with the "road noise", I was having second thoughts of my decision to purchase the vehicle. After much research, I purchased the True Contacts from Continental. It is like finally driving the vehicle I thought I had purchased. I am actually suprised Honda doesn't install these tires on their new vehicles to give owners the quite/comfortable ride they paid for and deserve. Discount Tire gave me $35 for each of the used Bridgxxxxx and I was extremely happy to take it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tire Just a few days back I put four of these TrueContact tires on Nissan Altima and I am already seeing QuietRide and ComfortRide technology working as advertised. Significant reduction in noise, my old tires were pretty worn out but still so quite, even on bridges. Very comfortable ride over minor damages and bumps on roads, hardly any vibration on steering. Handling seems awesome. Can't comment on fuel efficiency and traction because I haven't driven much (so 4 stars) but I am sure those will be good. Also, get your wheels aligned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great rede, short tread life installed in 2007 Sienna, and had worn out edges in less than 40K mi. had the appearance of under-inflation, but I kept them at 44psi. Alignment was fine. No idea what happened, although tire dealer thinks I should be using tires rated for more weight (these were same as OEM, which went to 70K mi). I will try one more set, but will insist on warranty coverage if they last only 40K again. For what its worth, the ride was great, the gas mileage not so (went down 2mpg)
