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 3 out of 5 by from Would not recommend for a RDX I purchased these tires in April 2017 for my 2013 Acura RDX. I was interested in replacing the stock tires with a tire that would last more than 38k miles. I read a lot of reviews and decided on the TrueContact. Positives: the tires after 14 months show no signs of wear, handle really well in the snow and rain. Negatives: the car vibrates while driving at higher speeds. I noticed this the first time I had the car on the highway so I took it back to the mechanic and had them balance the tires again. After that there was was still vibration on the highway, just not as bad. I had an alignment done, which also did not help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mileage Disappointment Bought Continental because I have always heard good things about the brand, and they have been around for a long time. I figured they know how to make a good tire. Bought the TrueContact because it's rated as a 90k mile tire. Yes I realize that in the real world I won't actually get 90k, but I expected to at least get 65k-70k. Not a chance. Even though I have regularly rotated the tires every 7k miles, I'm only getting close to 45k-50k if that. That's with only running the tires 7 months out of the year also. The other 5 months I run my winter tires of a different brand. Really disappointed, expected better results than that.

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 Best bang for the buck all seasons! I bought a set of 4 of these truecontacts for my chrysler 300 about 5 months ago and I have put about 6,000 miles on them since then. Compared to my last set, these perform so much better in wet weather. Much better grip. I haven't gotten a chance to test them out in snow yet, but I have a feeling they will be an improvement over my last set as well. They ride nice and are extremely quiet on the highway. They seem to be wearing very nicely (I can't really notice any wear on them yet at all actually). I would say the only con, is that the treat is deep so they do tend to pick up rocks a bit more from gravel roads but if you want a grippy tire, that's to be expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I bought these tires last year for my 2009 Honda CR-V replacing Cooper Tires. The tires exhibited vibrations and roughness at various speeds above 45 MPH.. Took them back and re-balancing was ineffective. The dealer (Kauffman) indicated these tire were problematic and offered to exchange all 4 for another brand, but I persisted as I wanted to try the Continental Tires. They eventually replaced 3 out of 4 tires but the vibration persists to this day. I should have swapped them for another brand, but Continental was highly rated with good tread life so now it looks like we are stuck with them until they wear out.

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 Ultra quiet ride and smooth rolling Bought these tires at the start of winter for my 2014 forester. Previously had the oem Geolanders and blizzaks. I lost a couple MPGs when I put them on but it’s a trade off I’m happy with. These are less expensive and quieter than the geolanders and grip in the snow almost as well as the snow tires. I drive about 25000 miles a year in all comditions in the mountains of Colorado and these have handled everything I’ve thrown at them. Quiet and comfortable on long highway trips, confidence in deep snowy unplowed roads, and handle well enough to have fun in the corners. Will buy them until they stop making them.
