Haven't had Continentals on the car since new. Over the past 16 years, and 4 sets of rubber later, these are the best set yet. Pirelli P Zero, Bridgestone S-02, and Dunlop SP Sport Maxx have all been wonderful. But these tires have the best all around performance the car has ever known. They also run smoother and quieter, somehow even on 18's at 36 psi doing 120 km/h with the top down. Will look for another set if the car continues to last.
