Rated 3 out of 5 by from Noisy but great turning response I had a set of Continental DWS UHP tires on my Mazda three. One was ruined in a pothole. The store said that these Control Contact Sport A/S were very similar. They replaced 2 tires. The old DWS are not very noisy while the newer Conrol Contact Sport A/S are noisier than any other tire I can remember. They seem to make more noise at low speeds than high ones. Some people may not be bothered by the noise but I don't like it. I would select are tire with less performance that was quieter. I can say that for cornering if you turn the wheel fast the tires respond better than any other tire I have used...that part is super fun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tires not worth changing from DWS 06 After 2 sets of the DWS 06 all season I tried the Discount Tire exclusive - Control Contact Sport A/S. Thankfully DT honored their 30-day ride guarantee as I now have Extreme Contact DWS 06 back on my Audi. What a difference! The CC may have stronger sidewall per my research, but the ride is too rough compared to the DWS 06 model. I do not plan on changing again. My only concern with the DWS 06 is if the mileage will get close to the 50K Continental Warranty. Regardless, if they don't I know DT will work with me as a Continental Dealer to get another credit on my next set. This set I received 60% credit as only lasted about 23K miles which was surprising.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ride and handling I replaced the stock Michelins on my 2012 Genesis with these tires on a trip to Colorado because of damage to one of the original tires. Let me emphasise that these tires are NOT noisy! Driving through Nebraska at 75-80 miles an hour with no more noise than the MIchelins. These tire have a good ride quality and handling, and provide a more aggresive tread pattern than the orighinal tires (one of the things I wanted with replacement tires). I'm waiting for winter to evaluate the snow traction ability of these tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top notch all-season performance tires So far, just as good as the Continental ExtremeContact Sport DWS tires I previously had, and they were the best A/S performance tires I have ever used. I've put these through a full season (including snow) and they have performed admirably. For reference, I've driven on a variety of A/S performance tires to include Goodyear Eagle GT A/S, BFGoodrich g-force Sport A/S, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S, and Bridgestone Potenza A/S. Had them on RWD Infiniti, BMW, and MB. Continental A/S performance tires are the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very smooth ride I bought a set of 4 to replace my factory originals on my 2015 Honda Accord Sport. The stock tires were 235/45/18, and we're noisy and had a rough ride. I went with a taller tire, 235/55/18, and the car rides so much better.. and it's almost an inch higher off the ground. No more scraping on parking lot stop bars! I find the ride to be very smooth, not noisy at all.. The cornering and such seems great to me.. Maybe I'm getting old (57) but I really like these tire a whole lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not really an all season tire. I have a set of these on my Crown Vic. I live in Denver, CO and was told by the salesman that they would be a good replacement for the all-season tires that needed to be replaced. I bought the car used and was able to get two seasons out of the the tire I had. Dry and wet (rain) conditions with the Contact Sports and the tires are great. If there is just a bit of snow, my car is all over the place. Two inches of snow and I could barley make it up a slight incline (I mean slight) up to my kids school. Barley touch the pedal and they just spin (the car is stock). I know it is a rear wheel drive, but c'mon. I basically do not have an all season tire and wish I had not bought these. Should have went with the something a little more aggressive, but wanted an all season. Now I have to get a set of 'winter tires' just to make it through a little snow. Lesson learned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Cold Spot Flat tire ever I bought these back min November as a replacement for Extreme Contact DWS. Huge mistake. These things ride like octagon shaped tires in the morning. They don't usually smooth out for 5 to 7 miles and then they're still no where near as smooth or quiet as the DWS' were. I can't keep them balanced, been in the shop 4 times in 5k miles. I've owned a lot on Continentals in the past and these are a huge disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tire quality and features are great also warranty! I purchased in attempt to find a alternative to my lineup off new yet truly great tires,this tire is very special! I have thoroughly enjoyed its description of benefits and it’s amazing impact on me. Center three tread blocks contact the road with great grip it’s road feel is remarkably smooth the side walls have zero loss of grip, I find this sidewall doesn’t alone hold its grip but it’s entire ensemble of skills I like the road feedback I get. I get no harsh feedback. It reminds of hot summer days. I have amazing acceleration and grip under demand of hitting the gas I receive straight line road feel and I have a unique feeling about the Control of the Continental Control Contact Sport A/S it’s warranty coming along touches it’s remarkable price. I use nothing but the best but this ride quality inspires confidence an enthusiast driven Driver uses to inspire confidence. Enjoy.
