Tire Pros

A lot of performance at a good price

Tire Cons

They do wear quickly on a heavy car.

We have used these tires for daily driving and for track driving. Our Audi does chew these tires up, but it is a great summer tire and wears much better than lower quality brands.

Buy Tire Again Not Likely

Tire Pros

Great price great grip dry or wet decent tread life so far

Tire Cons

Noisy unless youre driving on fresh blacktop then it uses its indoor voice

Bought these to replace my Michelin Pilot 2s as price was a factor The Michelins were the BEST tires Ive ever experienced Barring that the Extreme Contacts deliver excellent grip in dry one wet They seem to have more lateral give over the Michelins like riding on jello causing an extra delay in steering response Once youre used to that youll have to get used to the road noise Its not dealbreaker as the price was nice but youll realize it when you stop and wonder what that sound is silence I also have a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium with handling pkg 5 door Not known to be chocked full of noise reduction features to take that for whatever its worth
