Top Continental ContiCrossContact LX 2 Review

Given 69% while driving a Renault (215/60 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 19,000 easy going miles
In terms of longevity the LX2 tyre is hard to beat: 19,000 miles and 7mm of tread remains! Dry and wet road grip is very good too, and I can't fault their traction and grip on snow either (they're labelled 'M&S').
Unfortunately, they're not 'all-season', so once the temperature drops below 4deg C they become increasingly noisy and harsh (at -10deg C they sound and feel as though they're running flat).
Grip on compacted snow, icy or greasy roads suffers too.
As I've racked-up the miles the LX2s have also become noisier at normal temperatures.
I'd happily trade some of their high-mileage capability for more cold-weather/all-season versatility if I'm honest.

Given 74% while driving a Nissan Navara D23 2,3TDI 190HP (255/60 R18 H) on a combination of roads for 28,000 spirited miles
I use my truck for a combination of purposes: Towing my jet ski on sand/gravel/pebble beaches. Going to rough mountain roads and some off-roading there. I mostly go to where hiking trails start but can be challenging at times in Greece (see Rally Acropolis) Going skiing/mountaineering, again to the beginning of trails, to mountain refugees and the likes. I NEVER GOT STUCK! Driving in deep snow ~30cm at 40kph I had a mild understeer in a peculiar corner but that was it. Only once did I have to pull my jet-ski from further in at the beach because the trailer got buried in the sand and all fours spun out. The car alone had no issue though. I never got a puncture or tear on the sharp rocks of Greek mountains. Overall, an excellent tyre that I wish lasted a bit further from 40-45.000km

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 89% while driving a Peugeot 3008 (225/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 29,500 average miles
I have a SUV - 3008 with grip control.
I live in the UK - temperate climate, hardly snows if ever - we get our fair share of rain....
I don't offroad. Mostly town and motorway.
I have these tyres as they came with the car.
I've listed the review as average driving style, but in truth the car does get pushed ( 'spirited')more often than that.
Coming up to 30K miles on these tyres. 3.2mm left on front 4.4 on rear.

I think its fair to say that in the UK 10 years ago, very very few people would have even known that winter tyres were an option, certainly my parents have never had them fit in there nearly 60 years each of driving.
Nowadays, especially with the german brigade failing miserly whenever there is the slightest sign of light frost, winter tyres seem to be 'the norm'.
These tyres are classed as mud and snow tyres by peugeot, on here they are classed as Premium Touring Summer tyres designed to be fitted to SUV and 4x4's.
I'm no tyre expert, but to me; the tread pattern looks like its designed for more than summer roads - and having driven these for 30k miles, i can say with confidence that these tyres are great.
Wet and dry handling, braking, confidence is brilliant - keeping in mind its an SUV.
Pushing it hard in roundabouts, its predictable, you just know...

I haven't encountered deep snow, i'd like to know if these are good in snow, but we just don't see any. However, for the UK, in sub 7 degree temps they perform like my wifes car which IS shod in winter rubber.

All I can say is that i wouldn't hesitate to buy these again (which won't be long for the front). Infact, i don't think i would consider a summer tyre of these. If you own a SUV in a climate similar to mine, then consider these.

Given 81% while driving a Peugeot 3008 (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 35,000 spirited miles
I got the Tyres factory fitted on the 2018 Peugeot 3008 1.8l engine. have used the tyres for a total of 36000 miles of which 25000 MIles are driven without any issue.I drive daily at around 77 Mph on the Highway daily for around 50 miles and 25 miles within city limits at an average of 35 Mph. I have driven around 80 miles on off road to avoid traffic through the life of these tyres. I have not rotated my tyres at all during the life of these tyres, However I have checked for Allignment every 6000 Miles without any issues reported.
After Diving for 25000 miles I faced the following Issues, 1) the road noise increased considerably 2) The vibrations on the back tyres have increased. 3) The thread on the tyres are down to 3-4 mm but the threadblocks are worn out unevenly on the back tyres at certain points which effects the added noise that I am experiencing.

Overall the tyres are excellent, They have fared well for the extreme temperature in UAE. You feel very confident while driving and breaking distance feedback on these tyres are excellent. My comments after having used the Bridgestone Turanza on myDodge Durango and the Pirelli Tyres on My Honda. You will not regret buying these tyres and I am already on the lookout for the replacement tyres as they are hard to find for the 225/55/18 variant in UAE.

Given 84% while driving a Nissan Navara D23 2,3TDI 190HP (255/60 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 28,500 spirited miles
After 30k+ miles (45k km) the tires had no tread left.
The ride is smooth and silky.
Very good traction in sand, pebbles, gravel, dirt and mud.
Above 40km/h on 20-30cm deep snow, some under steering appears even with locked 4x4. By comparison, my snow tyres on FWD are stable at over 60km/h.
Overall very good tyre that I would gladly wear again.
