Safe, long lasting and low road noise
I had these tyres for just over five years and I am a frequent traveller from Sydney to Newcastle, so high km’s. The tyres are great quality, low road noise and great in the wet weather. I bought them again a few months back.
Purchased in December 2015 for $1,200.00.
best value tyres
these were my original tyres fitted to my defender they were out of date (7 years ) before the wore out to require replacement
all the way to the end they were never far from balanced and the grip was outstanding in all conditions
had zero punctures and the wear was so even that they were standing upright after 145000 kms
Purchased in April 2013.
Can't give it enough value, I have been using alot of tyres and the continental have proven their high quality and money value. Compared to most of the brands out there its the best deal.
These tyres came with our Land Rover Defender 90 and have done 122,000km on them with no problems. Includes the occasional off road trip as well as alot of towing. Have been now trying to buy the same again however everywhere says Continental have stopped bringing them into Australia now. A great pity as they are extremely durable.
Have had now for 80k on a Prado 150, they have been an outstanding tyre, lasted a trip towing 1.5t camper over the Gibb River rd and most side tracks, up to Mitchell plateau with no issues or punctures. they handle the heat of running low pressures at speed for long periods without failing. they are great on wet roads and not much more noise than OEM.
Good road handling and quiet
Good on black top in dry still dont know about wet as it dont rain much in western australia,it showered
Couple times when i first put them on last july and in first 2000 klms they okay,20,000 on them with little wear
On track for 80,000 on my colorado ltz
Great value for money
I run them at 38 psi on the road and 20psi on the beach in the Triton. Sure can be a bit slippery in the rain at 38 but slip into 4wd no trouble . Payed $235 per tyre no wonder there on all the new Disco,s.Great all rounder. No noise, wouldn't get any other tyre now
Great tyre for the price 245/70r16
These are really good tyres with good grip in both wet and dry. They are also good in mud and I was surprised to see how well the self cleaning works. Noise is mild for an all terrain tyre. Off road they are great, the walls are strong and can handle rocks and mild 4WD. I have done 25,000 km in them and they still look new. Overall a very good tyre for the money. I bought these on that 3+1 deal at Bob Jane owhen each tyre was $209.
Really want to buy the conticrosscontacts AT
Have read all I can find on the continental cross contacts.Used them for a week in the out back and love them.We did have one flat with a rock tearing a hole in the side .We do one big trip a year with a off road caravan and are hard on them for one month a year.Before you experts yell what about the other four famous big names I hear you .All I want to hear is will they survive the Birdsville track at 80 Towing ...
Very Happy on My Pajero 35Ks so far
Bought a set of Conti Cross Contact LX back in 2011.
Done around 35000 ks being 90 % Sydney metro and on the beach at stockton quite a few times.
Very happy, good in the wet, i always put 42 Psi in seems to be the best for my needs.
Will have no problem buying these again..
I bought these tyres due to there reputation of being good wearing, good road dynamics and rolling resistance. I purchased these tyres for about $280.00 fitted and balanced. When compared to the big known brands of tyres in the 4wd community, they seemed to be good value...how wrong I was.
They have lasted just over 27,000km on about 80% sealed road and 20% gravel, they are now useless for registration and have to be replaced.
Confidence Off Road
My VW Amarok originally came with the “Continental cross contact sport” tire so I thought I would stay with the same brand. The Continental cross contact sport for the record is an awesome tire for on road (10/10 to the engineers at VW, they match beautifully with the car for on road performance). I had to upgrade to heavier tires though, as they were scuffing and cutting up when off -road.
First impressions of the ContiCrossContact A/T – it was a rainy day, initially slippery but have noticed they are better now, I think this might have b...een the factory grease/new? They will force you to take more care in the wet though. Body roll- compared to the previous tires, I have to reduce my speed around corners by at least 10 to 20%. They are not a hard rubber but make a minor skid noise when pulling up hard around corners on ashfelt and limestone. The Tire Company (Bob Jane $250 ea) said to run the pressures at 40PSI, but fully loaded ute plus a heavy trailer I had the rears set at near on 50+ psi. The tires bagged out with heavy weight, in an unloaded ute if driving on sand I notice you really have to let the pressures down to see real bagging of the tire (I presume this means the side walls are quite stiff/solid). Open bitumen road, – very impressed, they track well, road noise is minimal, you have to listen for it. Steering is true and easy. Sand – great at 16 to 25 psi and I can get through anything… After a big off road trip and off road on cutting rocks -No scuffing or side wall damage, don’t even look like they’ve been off road – (continental Cross contact/sport used the previous year at the same locations had cutting to the surface/side wall but no punctures).
Not as good in the wet as original fitment Kumho's
Bought these to replace original Kumho's on my Jeep after 43000 kms. The Conti's were noticeably smoother and a tad quieter but no where near as good as the Kumho's in the wet, and I can break traction in the dry on a quick get away with the Conti's, something that never happened with the Kumho's. I think the Conti's will deliver a little better mileage, I might try Michellins next time.
so far happy with grip in dry and no noise it dont rain much in perth so yet to test in wet
Very quiet and good grip and corner well on local roads and highway and not to bad off road on gravel tracks not to much retention off material in tread
March 6th 2015 Update:
Update to january review good in wet,good braking and cornering wet or dry,not recomended for serious offroad or bush bashing side walls only 2 ply but will handle gravel and sand okay
Will buy again, Continental crosscontact AT
I've had my cc AT's on my 2012 D40 for a little over 30 thou k 's now and I'm surprised. I originally brought them because of the tread pattern and the price, $700 for the set of 4 fitted etc, I've been to Fraser twice now on them and they can stop where everyone else gets stuck and pull them out (I obviously let them down unlike the ppl I'm pulling out). In the wet I have not found any fault with them except the nav keeps trying to spin em. In the dry dirt and on bitumen I found they also have great characteristics, very good alrounder. To b...e completely honest, most of my driving is for work (tradie) and tow a 2 tonne trailer everyday, I'm pretty harsh on my tyres. I've got 30k as I said out of them and have at least 15-20k left and all the tyres are wearing evenly and I hadn't rotated the tyres since new. I'm buying them again and I think they are perhaps one of the top At performers.
Questions & Answers
Is it noisy?
Can anyone tell me the year of tyre manufacture for Y61T 3P1 Cross contact AT?
I purchased mine in October 2012 sorry I have since sold the car so can't get the date stamp, but had no problem up until I sold the car. Have you tried Continentals web site
