(215/60 R16) on
First of all, you have to be aware that this is an eco tyre made by Continental and tend to be their most entry level product, so expect it have almost the same character compared to the others eco tyres. I saw lots of users complaint about it’s grip during wet surface and not confident for high speed handling. I mean What?!!! Come on guys, this is an eco tyre, it meant to be lower down your fuelling cost and made to be last longer than performance tyre, so don’t expect you can get a performance tyre’s like experience while you are paying the money for an eco tyre.
Back to my own review, I had the UC6 before and it started to make lots of noise after the thread wear lower than about 60%, and my most priority is to be comfort and quieter drive, since I’m driving a Honda Accord with 2.0L NA engine, so I’m not going too fast anyway, and I decided to give CC6 a try and it does the job that I want, quieter than my previous UC6 and Goodyear Assurance, even now it has been used for more than 20k km, the noise level are still better than the tyres I used before and the thread are still like 50% left. And of course, the sidewall are much softer compared to the UC6 which is same as my expectation, so it does more comfort on city drive but not so suitable for high speed cornering. But guess what? There are no perfect tyre in this world, so this CC6 is something that I need which is comfort and quiet rubber, if you are someone really hardcore on driving, pay more and go get the proper performance tyre, which surely will make more noise and wear out quicker.
