Tire Pros

When new this is a great tire.

Tire Cons

Tire wore out much too quickly and slowly started to leak air at about 25K. Totally shot down to the wear bar at 31K.

I feel sorry for anyone looking to this tire as an introduction to the Continental brand and if I did not have previous Conti experience I would not be back. Luckily I have experience with and will be going back to the Continental DWS series. Tires did not last as long as they should have (dead to wear bars at 1.5 years and 30K). Tires occasionally lose grip but perform just OK in winter. Overall I'd upgrade for the few dollars to the DWS series.

Tire Pros

Summer handling met expectations

Tire Cons

Poor snow traction Poor tread life

These were stock tires on my VW TDI Sport Wagon. As I live in the Rocky Mtns, I was initially pleased that they had good snow ratings. In spite of the rating, I found them very poor in unpacked snow conditions. I was forced to buy wheels and premium snow tires. I was also disappointed in the tread wear. Living in the mountains and driving a pretty nimble car, I suppose I push it some in the summer. But the tread was uniformly gone by about 25k miles.
