Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these tires I put these tires in about 5 days ago right before I went on a long road trip, I drive a 2017 WRX STi and I will say I am very impressed with these tires, before I bought these I had the Continental Pure Contacts, there is a noticable difference between those and the LS, although both are great tires, I noticed the LS’s are much quieter, and do make a noticeable difference on MPG, my car is rated for 21 on the car and I usually could get about 22 if I was lucky, with the LS’s my car had no problem getting 24.5 MPG. If anybody has any questions about these tires you can message me on Instagram @17silver_sti, I should know how these tires do in the snow next month when I am up north. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tesla S 60 - Very Pleased So Far! My OEM tires were past due at 32k. I was looking for a quiet, long lasting tire with good handling and LRR efficiency. It was down to this tire or a competitor. (TireRack review on the competitor dinged them for wet handling.) This new Conti tire didn't have enough ratings yet but I took a chance and so far I am very pleased. Very quiet ride, great handling. Time will tell on the treadlife. I've also taken a hit to my energy efficiency, but this is to be expected with any new tire. As they wear in, I'm expecting to see an improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tesla S P100D Great Tires I'm running to 245\45\19 s. I would echo the previous comments by the Taurus driver. Previous tires were Michelin Primacys, very good tires I've had them several times. I read about the new Continental Purecontact LS. I was attracted to the long mileage rating as well as focus on quietness. My local tire dealer located them and install them. Initially I had to adjust the tire pressures from 47 psi to factory 42 psi. After a few hundred miles I can say that there are some of the quietest tires I've ever had. By reducing the background noise, a Soundsystem sounds so much better. The ride is more relaxing. The ride is my relaxing. These tires are very comfortable riding. Handling also seems very good for a luxury touring tire. Looks like I'm going to like these tires a lot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do not live up to the advertisement. Bought these tires based upon Continental telling me they are the replacement to original equipment Contipro contact. After 700 miles they are noisy, not as smooth as Contipro and seem to have a vertical dither when cold. They also transmit much more NVH into the cabin than Contipro. Driving at 40-50 mph they sound like they are cupped. Highway speeds of 65-70 mph they are a little quieter than Contipro. Overall I wish I had bought Contipro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for winter I bought a set of these for my RAV 4 and drive in central Minnesota. For all-season tires, they offer good snow traction. If you can't or won't buy dedicated winter tires, I think these are about as good as you can get in an all-season. On drive or wet pavement, they seem fine. They seem to cut through water pretty well. For a tire that tries to do the impossible job of doing everything well, I am impressed at how good these are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with my decision I compared these tires against many competitors but decided to go with these. I was skeptical at first since there weren’t many reviews and I wasn’t very familiar with Continental, but I do not regret buying these tires at all. These tires have reduced road noise, increased handling responsiveness, and do an excellent job at performing on rough roads. I haven’t tested them in the snow yet, but I anticipate they will do just fine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average at best Continental LS... I bought these in November/December. From what I was told at a tire dealer these were to replace the Pure Contact eco plus(which I had). The tread pattern change was a disappointment. The old pure contact eco plus were a great tire in the rain and snow. This Continenal LS is awful in the snow compared to the my old PC E+ , a harder ride in normal conditions as well. It's a great summer tire though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good handling but horrible road noise Now 1500 miles on these coming from the OEM tire and road noise and tracking are not what I expected from this new design as I was hesitant to buy the brand again but decided after reading reviews.Handling is good along stopping but road manners are horrible especially on certain surfaces with droning. Adding also that the tires fail to soak up any small bump or cuts in the road surface which transfer to driver.
