Magnificent Performance

These are truly remarkable tyres. The handling around bends with speed in all conditions were faultless.
The harder I pushed them the more confident I became.
However, tyres can not be all things to all people. In exchange for exceptional performance they had compromised life, less than 25’000km and being a softer tyre I cracked an alloy wheel on a pothole.
Regarding the short life span of the tyre it’s fair to say that 70% of those miles were on Northern Territory (Australia) roads in excruciatingly hot temperatures.
The bitumen roads in the tropical north seem to be made with deeper sealed gravel to enable heavy tropical rain to drain without flooding the road surface.
All around remarkable handling…at a price. Show details

Perfect for drive, worn out quickly less than 33k

I got Volvo xc90 D5 2020 , tyres Continental 275/45/r 20 v 110 xl had come with new car .
Generally I drive car smooth , noticed they were completely worn out by 33k.

These tyres are smooth while riding, good in handling road conditions however I am not happy with them as they were quickly worn out. These tyres are not cheaper, I would expect minimum 40k and they are failed to do.

I will not buy these continentals anymore. Show details

Marshmellow ride

I had these tyres ones before when i opted to buy them. This time they where already on my new Golf R 7.5 when i bought the car. On both ocassions i find the ride on these tyres just too giving around corners when applying spirited driving. They feel soft marshmallow like when taking bends and corners. They are simply not suited for sports driving that requires a firmer tyre wall. Though these tyres are njce and quiet and very good for average driving styles, but certainly not for sport driving style.
I be reverting back to the Bridgestone Potenza when these are worn. Show details

Tyres

Standard tyres, nothing special about then they wear down fast enough so I wouldn't be rushing back to get them again, shop around for them and if you get a good deal go for it, otherwise spend a little extra on a higher quality tyre and you'll know the difference after 50000kms  Show details

Expensive tyre, very fast wear

Probably the fastest wearing tyre I have ever owned, and most expensive. My 2019 C300 Mercedes chewed through the front run flats within 12000klms. This is totally unacceptable. One tyre was bald just shy of 10000klms. Show details

Nice, but fragile... I've had enough!

I've been running Continental ContiSportContacts now for about 8 years. And with every generation, the sidewall can fail (where maybe you've hit a small pothole or bump... not hard but it creates a blister on the side wall). This has happened three times now. They just aren't very robust. Like others say, they are nice tyres, grippy(wear quickly), quiet etc etc, but they've let me down too may times and they aren't cheap to replace. I've got Michelins (PSS) on the other car and they have been fantastic. Show details

Good gripping tyre but worn out so quickly

A really grippy tyre, great in the wet and dry. Really disappointed at how quickly they have worn though. Only 26000km on my Holden ZB Calais Tourer and nearly down to the wear indicator marks. Don't expect to replace a set of tyres so soon. Do mainly highway driving. Show details

Great tyre! But... they wear out a little fast

I like these Continentals. They are quiet, grip well in wet or dry and can handle being thrown around. I have them on my very heavy Lexus LS600hL which can wear the edges off tyres quickly. The Conti’s started showing shoulder wear at about 40,000Ks or 20 months. So good for maybe 45,000 to 50,000 kilometres. I recommend these for highway driving mostly. Show details

Good brand tyres with sporty look

Bought this tyre at a discounted price as I know it is a famous brand and fits my car's sporty look. Has used it for more than 5000kms and still hitting the road. Runs smoothly and grip the road well. Show details

Awesome

I bought a set of continental tyre to put it on Audi A4 2019. It's very smooth and barley hear any noise inside the car cabin. My car run very smoothly after I have changed the tyres. I'm happy with overall quality. Show details

NOT RECOMMENDED

We bought these tyres in August for a Volvo V40 diesel. At a routine Volvo service in October we found 2 of the tyres were damaged beyond repair. Bob Jane Haberfield refused to accept any liability and said it was driver error. We foolishly bought 2 more of these from Bob Jane as they offered a small discount and it was easy. NEVER AGAIN as another tyre developed a problem with the tyre wall. Show details

Rubbish tyres - the worst ever. Had to replace in just 17000 km

These tyres came fitted on my new Santa Fe which I bought in January 2019. The car had done just over 17000 kms, and one of the 4 tyres became completely bald at the edges. The remaining three tyres also didn't have much of the tread left on them.

I have never driven done any offroading or harsh driving to cause such excessive wear. The tyre pressure has always been mainted at 35-36 psi as per the manufacturer's recommendation. Santa Fe is my family car and driving with these tyres was a risk, so I had to replace all the 4 tyres at just 17000 km - and of course I did NOT buy Continentals. Never again.

The worst tyres I have had in my life so far. Show details

Contisport Contact 5

Came fitted to our new car and we have now done just over 7000 km. I have found them to be very good in both wet and dry and tar and gravel road conditions. Wear seems negligible so far. They are reasonably quiet and hold a great line when pushed the car handles great and these tyres are part of that. Show details

I have minimal to no real road noise from my Continentals, so am surprised with yours. I have only driven about 16 klms on gravel with no problems whatsoever.

I never drove on anything other than normal roads, but had to replace tyres at 17000 km. But the tyres were alright for road noise, it wasn't too bad. These are not durable tyres at all.
