I've had Continental Contacts for years prior to having Michelins standard on my current BMW. Now that I've replaced the Michelins with the Continentals, I doubt I will ever go back to the Michelins again. The Continentals are MUCH better on snowy roads, and ride smoother and quieter on dry pavement. Handling is similiar to the Michelins.

Replaced OEM Goodyear GT-A. Contis are a huge improvement. Reduces trammeling, improved wet traction, softer ride. I feel more confident.

I bought these because the OE ContiProContact were not so great for Buffalo's snowy winter last year. We used the ContiExtremeContacts on previous cars (VW Passat 2006 and Mazda MPV Minivan) with great results. They are a big improvement over the Pros for winter, but not so sporty for my GTI when it comes to cornering. They actually handled better than OE tires on the Passat and MPV - summer or winter - but they reduce the sporty handling of the GTI in warmer conditions. Could be that the sidewalls are a bit softer - which improves the ride, but not the cornering.

These are great tires, their performance in all conditions are excellent. I absolutely recommend these tires, finally a set of High Performance All-Season tires that actually work in all seasons. As an added bonus the price for each tire is great. MavisTire.com is an excellent seller, I ordered my tires and had them within days, the service was great.

I was buying the recommended Michelin tires for this car, and going through a set every 2 years at about $1000 for four tires. Then the belts on my current set got damaged from a pothole (maybe) and I had to buy four more. A friend recommended Mavis, I checked out these tires and couldn't believe they were less than 50% the cost of the Michelins. I checked them out with my mechanic, he said they're very good tires and are included as original equipment on BMW's (I have an Acura TL). The tires are great, quiet, perform well and I saved $500. Woo hoo!

I was in a rain storm the same day I got these tires. Wow, what excellent traction and performance I got from them. If you are worried about your tires in wet conditions, then these are the tires to allay your fears...

These tires are a far better choice than the OEM Bridgestone tires that came with the car with the sole exceptions of smoothness and quietness on the road. In all other respects, especially for high-speed driving, cornering and handling, and foul weather performance, these tires are superior.

These are great tires if you need winter traction, decent treadwear and a smooth ride. They do not grip nearly as well as the factory tires (Potenzas) although they are two thirds the price. Kind of puts a damper on the spirited WRX ride.

Replaced my OEM Bridgestone EL42s at 35K. So far very happy with the Conti's.
Wet driving is excellent. No loss of MPG performance. Tires are quiet and ride well, especially considering the somewhat aggressive tread pattern.
At $122 a tire I am very pleased with the purchase. If they perform as advertised in the winter and I can get 40K+ miles on them I will be thrilled

So far so good. Had some light snow day after I bought them, handled excellent. Very good in rain, resists hydroplaning, good grip. Not as responsive as some sport tires, but still offers adequate grip and handling. Minimal road noise, excellent overall ride.
