Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good replacement for Bridgestone Run Flats I purchased these to replace Bridgestone Run Flat tires on my 2008 BMW. These tires definitely less noisy and handle pretty well. I noticed that they seem to be of a lesser height than the original OEM Bridgestones. Traction is also needed to be improved. My Bridgestones never squealed on payment. Overall, I'd pick Continental over Bridgestone to get better performance and save some $$$

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wears so fast on my Tesla First of all, when Continental sends me a survey they should know what kind of tires I bought. Fix that please. I don't know the product line. This is a guess. Secondly, you're going to get more electric vehicles on the road, not less. My tires should last longer than 30k miles, which is what they're averaging right now. Otherwise they're quiet and hold the road very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pros and Cons I have run thru three sets in 117 miles,time for new.Great grip and all weather ablity,nice tire until close to 30K miles.Then the unbearable noise and vibration rears its ugly head.On a conservative car with a conservative driver,not beaten or abused,all highway miles....You tell me......Do not let you rebate card expire,there are no do overs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sticky! I've had these for about a year, but on a pleasure car, so only a couple thousand miles with a 1200 mile trip included. These tires are soft and sticky. They seem almost as soft as a track tire, but they're also smooth and quiet. Not sure how long they'll last, but they'll no doubt reach a replacement date before the tread is gone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OEM Replacement Needed to go with OEM replacement since Mercedes lease is particular about how it is returned. The original set of Conti Sport Contact were good tires except they wore out after only 12K miles. Given the price and advertised wear data, not a very good deal. Wanted to go with Michelin Pilot Sport 4.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just not a great tire CONTISPORTCONTACT 5 SSR These are run-flat tires. Fred Flintstone had better tires. Less then a year old and the sidewall on 1 tire has a bubble so I had to replace it. I have worked in many many tire plants throughout the world. I know how a good tire is built. This is not one of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No longer new! Put these tires on about one year and 20,000 miles ago. Wearing well. Good grip on the road and very quiet. Unfortunately the Rebate never arrived. But since this E Mail just showed up congratulating me on my recent purchase who knows!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replaced at 13k miles These came with my new Audi. A nail required a replace one of the tires at about 6k miles. From that point on the tires were loud and contributed to a vibration at about 70 mph. I replaced with new Michelins. Problem solved.
