Tire Pros

Good tread life for this type of tire. Reasonable grip on dry and wet pavement.

Tire Cons

Noisy and vibration issues.

I bought this tire to replace some Pirelli p zeros (not stock) which I loved but which had a very short tread life. These tires cause vibration at speeds over 70. I have had the car in multiple times for re-balancing and alignment adjustments and it has been a consistent problem. Note, I never had this problem with the old tires and everything else is the same. As long as the speed is under 70 they seem to ride ok although they are also ride noisier then my old Pirellis. I guess this is the price you pay for longer tread life. So far I have over 13K on them with very little noticeable wear. I may dump them soon though and go back to the Pirellis.

Would never buy these again these are the worse tires I have bought from discount tire yet they should just discontinue this tire its bad business for continental tire.
