Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short life - 2014 Mazda6 GT This was an awesome tire (even in several inches of snow) the first 10k and great tire up till 20k. but now with 21,000 miles I'm looking for replacements as performance is lacking and feels like I'm driving on jelly. Tread is almost down to the wear bars and for being a 50,000 mile tire, its unacceptable that they are worn out in half of that mileage. This was my first set of Continentals and purchased based on good reviews (at the time) and also was rated at the longest tread life in my 19" size I needed. Tires are very near needing replacement at 21,000 miles and I will end up getting HALF of the stated tread life for this tire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tires I have owned!! I drive a 2015 Mustang that came with Pirelli P-zero tires; there were fine, but nothing great. When those wore out at 23,000 miles (!), I went with these Extreme Contact Continentals. Living in Utah, with its full range of seasons, I wanted a high performance, all-season tire. These do not disappoint. Great traction, performance, and a quiet, smooth ride in dry conditions - better than the Pirelli. And in the cold, and rain and snow, they have been great. Amazing water displacement on wet, rainy roads, and also great traction in cold, snowy conditions. I will buy these tires again. I recommend them to anyone needing high performance, all-season tires!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Continental Experience 2K Miles In I selected the Continental DWS06 for my Inifiniti M35S due to the superior wet rating above all competitors. The M is RWD and excellent traction is a must in wet conditions. The tires are extremely quiet on nice roads. Concrete and surfaces with ridges or grain are noticeable noisier but nothing to complain about. I'm in Love with the tread pattern and performance. My highway fuel economy increased by 2 mpg's according to the M's fuel consumption computer. Steering response is awesome and I feel connected to the roadway. Thanks Continental for another set of great tires. This is my set and I'm convinced this brand is awesome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great in snow, quiet on pavement but didn't last I bought these as replacement tires for my 2014 Volvo XC70 T6. After 2 years (Nov 2016- Nov 2018) and just 22,000 miles, they need to be replaced! I will say they provided great traction in the snow the 1st 2 winters. I could probably get 5k more miles out of these IF I lived in a dry climate, but I live in snow country so I need tread. Because they have always worn evenly my Volvo service advisor did NOT rotate my tires during regular service intervals. **NOTE: Continental's 50K mile warranty is only valid if you have documentation that you rotated EVERY 6-8k miles. The original Continental tires that came on my Volvo lasted 30,000 miles...so I'm rather disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the best!! I have owned over 17 cars, and I have had to purchase a lot of tires. I own A 2011 E class, I was riding Pirelli P zero nero for 2 years.. From the moment I left the Tire Dealer on June 16th, 2018, I noticed the difference. These tires are very aggressive, I stepped on the gas and they preformed like a a big cat sticking its claws in the ground on the chase. I have never had tires that handled and preformed on the Los Angeles streets the way that these do. I took two 20mph curves at 50mph and 40mph and the tires did not budge nor slide, remained quiet and smooth, and gripped like no other.. I absolutely love these tires.. and plan to buy them for my Targa at the end of summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these tires on my Mercedes GL550!! These are the 2nd set of CrossContact Extremes I have put on my suv and I will keep buying these until they are no longer available or until the car dies! Though to find a 21in tire that has a grip and handling on any surface. Highway driving is quiet and plush. Only got 25K miles out of my first set but that was expected out of a heavy 4 wheel drive suv that tears up the road. Always rotated the tires and properly inflated them. When it was time to get a new set, I called Continental's customer service to inquire about my 5 year warranty and wear and they gladly too care of me! I am a customer for life because of how they and my MB dealership did a phenomenal job in taking care of me!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Tire. I have 2 BMW's, 2009 Z4 35I which i have the original Extreme Contact DWS tires placed on it. I raised the air pressure 4lbs more (33 to 37). The ride changed significantly.The ride was much smoother and quieter without sacrificing performance. It performed well in all seasons includung snow. The second vehicle is a 2007 X3 3.0SI M series badge with Sport kit. Having the performance package made the vehicle ride rough, the DWS06 tires also smoothed out the ride and enhanced the the performance. I have not been through a winter season with the 06's yet, but am confident they will exceed all my expectations. I truly love the DWS tires and will perchase them as long as they are in production.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Traction and quiet I bought these a month ago and love them. The factory tire on my 2016 Mustang with performance package were constantly fighting for traction. I live in the Northwest where the temperatures are below 47 degrees most mornings and yjr weather tends to be wet alot of the time. The factory tires were always a handful, you always had to very light on the gas unless you wanted to break the tires loose everytime you started out. The DWS06 tires have great traction, no more having to be extra cautious starting out and they stick when cornering. Great traction even when cold out. highly recommend.
