Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good tire. I have had this tire on a new 2014 GLK 350 4-matic it was OEM on this car. The car is rated at 302 hp. and my driving style wore these out at 46K miles. That is a decent lifespan for an all wheel drive, medium heavy, performance SUV. There are many tires that will live longer but I think that I got my moneys worth from this tire. I would buy them again. They really perform well. I think the road noise was low when new but it did increase as the tires wore. So for me, I wish they had longer tread life but I wouldn't want to sacrifice grip for more mileage. I do wish they were more quiet after they started to wear. These are good tires!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these tires! We have a Grand Cherokee Limited that did well with the stock tires but felt a little slippery when stopping on hard pack snow and ice. Our daughter had bought these tires for her Jeep and said it made a night and day difference in winter driving so on her recommendation we purchased a set. She was right! Hard pack snow, deep snow, solid ice, no problem. Best of all the tires are quiet, smooth riding and yet corner well. We have only put 8,000 miles on ours but our daughter has 28,000 on hers and they are wearing very well. I highly recommend these tires!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Customer Service! Bought tires because a rebate made them cheaper than their competitor. I followed the steps for the rebate, but long story short and after talking to customer service agents and supervisor, they would not send it to me. They said, "it was sent, you may have to wait another 4 weeks" but I never received it. Then they said it wasn't actually sent, but now the time frame has expired. I spent way too much of my time on the phone trying to figure out where my $90 rebate was, only to never receive it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tires good on wet roads with rain but.., Bought these for my Lexus rx350 at 92,605 Miles. Rated at 90,000 miles. Rotate religiously at 5000 miles. At 115,554 milesabout 23,000 miles driven they are now at 6/32 which means they are not good in my snow country as per the mechanics at Dunn’s tire. Continental didn’t want to credit me for a replacement at this time. I just hope I make it through the winter ok. Will probably not buy these ones again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steady supporter Have continental tires on my Past and present Volvo XC90 which weighs over 5 thousand pounds and eats tires.but Continentals have given me the Wear and handling I need in Ct. Summers and Winters. Also on my Forrester, and daughters cars also. Good tires are not cheap but I get the mileage and wear you expect from them. I’m 64 and been working on cars 50 years. I know a good product when I get one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistant treadwear These were standard on my GLK350. That set lasted 45,000 miles. Happy with performance and low noise level, and at the recommendation of MB service put another set on. At less than 20,000 miles two are showing significant wear, enough that MB recommended replacement. Had alignment and suspension checked; no problems. Don't quite understand at this point, but not buying another set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tires ! These tires came on my Nissan X-trail 2011 model (almost 6 years). Actually I bought this car in Dec 2015 (@23000km) and tires still in use(65000km). As winter is coming I am changing them to new ones next week. Of course to 4x4 Contact again. Winter performance is worth to mention but I think a bit noisy on highways. In addition those tires were made in Japan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They keep on going. I just put these tires on my 2014 VW Touareg TDI to replace the original tires which were Goodyear. These tires were on sale at my VW dealer. I switched from Goodyear as I also have a 2012 Mercedes Benz Sprinter with a 25’ Winnebago RV built on it. After 60,000 miles on the RV the original Continental Contact tires still have a lot of tread left on them. I did replace the front tires on the RV as I am paranoid about front tire blow outs and they had become worn due to front end alignment issues. Based on how well the four rear tires have done on the RV, which weighs 11,000 lbs, I decided to put them on the Touareg, which weighs 4800 lbs. I just took my first trip in the VW of 670 miles and the car handled very well, After leaving I-75 in northern Georgia I drove the last 40 miles on a windy, hilly two lane road. The car handled quite well and never drifted on the many tight curves along the route. So far I am very pleased with the Contacts on both of my vehicles.
