Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride on a great value I was pointed to these by an associate who really helped me to get the tire I was wanting. I drove from Denver to Atlanta getting the last bit of life out of my Falkens. They had about 50k on them, and still some life left to go, but didn’t want to start a winter on them. Installed in ATL, these new Conti SCrx were an instant improvrment. On the return trip home to Denver these tires were a dream in all conditions and speeds. Now back in Denver, these have been great in the snow as well. It came down to $20 per tire difference in the next price point down, well worth the upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Tire!!! I am a trainer for one of the largest tire install companies in the world. I had the priveledge to test drive these against its competitors in a controlled environment (dry/ wet)... as soon as I got back I purchased 2 sets for both my vehicle and my wife's. I can have any tire I want. This is a UHP A/S and handles like a dream. Response is perfect along with feel and grip on wet rains here in Florida. Plus it has an alightment wear indicators in the first 3k-5k miles, you can physically see if you are needing an alignment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shockingly Awesome I wasn't a huge fan of continental extreme contact DWS tires last year when I replaced the Pirelli's that had on Mercedes. This year on my Lexus IS 350 F-Sport I was once going through it again but this time I had to replace the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R. First off they are awesome tires but they were shot after only 12k miles and the cost of replacements was out of the question. So again I was back in the tire market after doing much research I found these Sure contacts and I figured what the heck the price is really reasonable and the rating were fairly high. Let me Just say that this far they are awesome. The best tires by far and the cheapest high proformance tire I be yet to put on one of my cars. They also look really nice almost similar to the Pilot Super sports. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tire I have tried so far The original Continental tires that came on my CLA 45 were short-lived due to punctures from nails. I tried some Cooper tires based on previous experience on my C240, but they did not perform nearly as well on this car. I ended up going back Continental, and the SureContact RX in particular based on the recommendation from the guy at NTB. The grip and performance has been amazing. No slippage from takeoff at a dead stop, excellent grip when cornering, and great feel at high speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tires Did a lot of research on tires, needed to replace to Conti Extreme DW's. They are pricey which came on the vehicle 245 40zr 19 I bought used, but a great tire, had a screw in one of them, tried to pull it out and air leaked so left it in and had no problem with at all.Looked at the Falkens, Michi, BF, and Extremes, went with the Sure Contact at NTB, buy 3 get 1 free. I love the ride handling and traction, very impressed. took the car to have it cleaned Vehicle 2009 Acura Tl Tech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tire Our Maxima went through 2 sets of OEM Goodyear Eagle RSA tires which lasted pretty well (about 45k miles each set). But when it came time to replace that last set, I just couldn't do it. The Goodyears are inexpensive and last a long time. But that's about it. They are terrible in heavy rain and get quite loud as they wear. These Continentals are really in a totally different class of tire. They are so quiet and grippy. Yes - they cost a bit more. But in the end, I think they are a very reasonable balance of price and performance. You can spend a lot more money on tires but probably aren't going to get much better than can also spend less, but you are likely going to sacrifice where it counts - traction and noise. I haven't had these tires long enough to really judge them - but so far I am really impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible tire I bought these tires thinking they were a great value for their price. After putting over 4,000 miles on them, the quality never changed from the first day I bought them, they are still awful. The ride is very noisy, both in city and highway. The tires handle very poorly in rain. They also corner horribly, wet or dry. I took these tires off and bought another set of tires from a different manufacturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tires with Super Grip It's been a little over a year since I purchased a set of these SureContact Rx tires for my '08 Maxima and I have to say I'm very pleased. Never have I owned a tire that provides this kind of superior grip in all weather conditions and they're quiet. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a touring/sport tire that wants a cost effective, grippy and quiet for their car.
