Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Performer I bought these tires for my 2017 VW Alltrack which has the 4 Motion AWD system. I live in the Greater Boston Area. So far the tires have performed flawlessly in mostly wet and dry conditions. It hasn't snowed yet very much but it wasn't the performance in snow that concerned me as these are winter tires. I was concerned about the performance on dry roads as I like to drive fairly spirited. I have a VW GTI that has high performance all-season tires on it so I am used to excellent handling. My Alltrack with the WinterContact SI performs very well by comparison. I have had no wheel slip accelerating, nor over-steer going around turns. The tires are not noisy and I am not experiencing loss of mpgs compared to the Conti ProContact all seasons that came with the car. This winter should be fun with the SIs; its the other drivers that worry me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent snow/ice tire Bought these for my Kia Optima Hybrid due to the junk OEM Hankooks they put on my new car. Winter in Ohio can be rough so I splurged and bought a dedicated set of winter tires. I couldn't be more pleased. My car handled every storm with ease and I kept me fuel mileage and ride. Other than the road noise due to the aggressive tread, these are perfect for a light weight car. I don't sweat snow and ice anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Winter Tires After long hours of research decided to buy the Continental WinterContact SI (235/55r19) over the Michelin X-ice Xi3, and the Birdgestone Blizzak WS80. I felt that the WinterContact SI was better suited for my needs here in Colorado where it does snow a lot, but usually dries out fairly quickly because it's sunny everyday, so I felt I would need a tire that can handle everyday driving in clear cold dry conditions as well as harsh snow and ice/slushy conditions. I've driven on these tires on dry but cool conditions and to me they aren't loud at all. They are very low rolling resistant which kept my MPG's right on par with the all seasons these tires replaced. The tires handled the wet snow slush/rainy conditions and ice covered roads extremely well. I felt the Braking and handling of my vehicle was very predictable and stable during these conditions. I would not hesitate to recommend these tires to anyone looking for peace of mind during the winter weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter performance I recently ran this tire on a BMW 5 series in Montana, and I loved the way it gripped the snow and gave me predictable handling at speed.
