These replaced the OEM ContiProContact tires on my 2013 Volvo front-drive S60 sedan. The old tires only had 17k on them, but one was damaged during a flat repair, and Discount Tire offered me two new tires plus $130 rebate on the remaining two...I couldn't resist. I have noticed the following: these tires ride more smoothly than the Continentals, seemingly better able to absorb bumps and holes. They are very slightly noisier, but that may be because I've only driven them about 1,500 miles. Dry performance is as good as or better than the Continentals, though the back-end of the car has just a bit more “lean” when cornering sharply (tires are at 36psi). It feels like the tires are a little more flexible laterally than the Continentals. I am not sure if it’s that, or if they’re losing adhesion with the road a little (though there’s not much weight back there in a front-drive small sedan). The front grips very well though. In my experience, wet performance is as good as or better than the Continentals. It is really quite good. Light snow performance (usually about all we get in El Paso) is surprisingly good. I'm not quite sure why a few others feel differently...perhaps things change as they wear. Luckily, I haven't had to try them out on ice. Overall, I am very pleased. Nice to see they'll wear longer than the OEM's too. Note: my vehicle came with higher load index Continental tires (97). Despite what my salesman wanted me to consider, I felt it important to replace them with similar-capacity tires, which I did.

2006 VW Passat VR6, 235/45/17 -- Dissappointed with these tires. The OEM set lasted barely 42k miles, and I pushed it half a year even going that long. I really liked the performance, low noise and the looks, too, so I decided to buy a replacement set. Everything was fine again, but dang, they wear out too fast (36k mi 2nd set) -- at least it feels that way after paying $220 per tire back in 2011. No snow in Sacramento so I can't comment on that. If these were $120-150 I'd probably buy them a third time, but now looking for something with longer tread life.

Normally expect over 50,000 mi on OEM tires which have always been noisy. Ride is harsh. Hard to distinguish between problems with tires or vehicle. At 31500 miles, patches of rubber missing, exposing cord on both front tires.

Standard on both my 2008 and 2011 Civic SI. These tires are awful! They offer very little traction under acceleration. The worst issue is their thread wear (300). Both sets only lasted about 16,000 miles. My present set is completely bald at 17,000. Yes, I drive hard, but no different than I did on my intergra gsr and 1998 integer type-r, and I never had tire issues like these before.

These are OEM tires on my Honda Accord and I am now driving them with 103000 miles. That's damn good for a trie that is predicted to run only about 50 or 60K. I plan on buying another set in the next week or so, as I cannot see why I would mess with a good thing. I see a lot of folks who consider these to be expensive tires; my answer to that is that you get what you pay for - they are average priced tires for a full size vehicle that you give a darn about. Sure, go ahead and save a buck and run your high dollar investment on crap. There are limits to them in snow, but I do not have to drive in snow on a regular basis in winter. Would recommend to anyone else without hesitation.
