Default Continental ContiExtremeContact review



To start off, I must say...

THESE TIRES WOKE MY CAR UP FROM THE DEAD!!!!

Anyone who has ever asked me about my car, I've told them I only have one gripe with the car... THE HANDLING! It'* always been really messy, rolling through ANY curve. Even though I knew that the tires would account for some of it, I didn't know that changing from wally world specials to all season high performance tires would make THAT much of a difference . The road noise, response, handling overall is just AMAZING! I think it'* the best deal for the money, by far. 81 bucks per tire + shipping from tirerack. Got them installed for 50 bucks. I must say, this has made me a happy camper, and I actually LIKE driving my car now . Has anyone ever had a similar experience where they replaced their tires and it VASTLY improved the driving dynamics? I'm in complete awe with what these tires did to my handling

Just don't expect a very long life out of that tire.

That tread looks familiar!

How are they holding up?
