Questions and Answers for the Continental ContiMaxContact MC6

2019-05-02 - Hi Tyrereview, My car is ford focus sport runs on a weird sized tyre (215/50/R17). I am currently looking for a set of good handling tyres with a level of comfort. Both continental MaxContact 6 and PremiumContact 6 have high review rating on the website, just wondering which one is better? Thanks.

The MacContact 6 is American market and PremiumContact 6 is Europe, so they do not overlap!

2019-10-10 - Hi, Currently I'm running on 225 45R17 on my BMW, it's time for me to change my tires. Having some confusion on choosing tires. So far I have 3 options, MC6, Goodyear efficientgrip performance or Michelin ps3. Need your comments. Can I upgrade my tires to 235 45 R17? I'm having stock rims.

Unfortunately I can't comment on tyre size changes as there are too many variables. Also, we don't get the MaxContact in Europe, but of the three options I would likely pick the Goodyear due to high comfort, low wear and good grip.

Given 69% while driving a Mercedes Benz E Class W124 E500 (215/50 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 1,000 spirited miles
A set of F/R 215-50+225-50 (17") (Maley made) on Mercedes Benz W124 E500 - Jan'18
Review at range 1,6xx KM. in Thailand, Mostly on motorway (80%) and B road (20%)
Dry grip are great, a bit better from MC5, and super stable on upper to high speed drive, confident on control. worm up supper quick, break on dry are super, real life compare with another e500, fresh new tyre both, MC6 is abt 1.5 s. quicker and 21-22 m. shorter to stop compare with the Thai's made - Primacy 3-ST on the same size.
A bit down breaking in wet (rainstorm wet, from 110 Kph to 40) its better to keep more distance as I felt the tyre are skid on the water time to time, and....a massive down on noice, this new one is, still, so loud on higher speed, a bit quieter if stay below speed limit. and the wear, I did 23,xxx km. in 17 months on last set of MC5, and its was totally wreck at that point, so far, it seem like long lasting wasn't the major improvement on the MC6.

SUM : One of the best tyre on dry, high speed and performance user, compare to the price, this is still be no.1 as of early 2018. hopefully won't see defect on sidewall or structure damage like other model from my pass on this model, So far, So good.

Given 76% while driving a Subaru 2.0 Crosstrek (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 12,500 average miles
The tyre gave a brilliant control over vehicle. The size i used was 225/55 r17 and the road feedback was enormous, after changing to the 225/50 r17 pilotsport 5 I noticed that all the bumps are rounder turning feel not as accurate and sometimes even squishy. The MC6 offer driver with so much confidence around corners and braking. For example, after switching to PS5, I definitely cannot get myself to throw my car into a corner at a speed that I did on MC6. (especially the first few times at the same corner. Even though dry grip levels are similar between these 2 tyres) The cons side is that it aquaplane quite a bit. It is still a very predictable tyre though. Wet handling and braking are not that great. Definitely have to be careful when driving in wet because there are such difference between wet and dry grip. Noise level are not good. Not excessively loud, but not quiet.

Given 84% while driving a Subaru 2006 impreza wrx STI (235/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 30,000 spirited miles
I’ve read heaps of reviews. My background is rally driving. I always take the squiggly backroads over the highway. I’ve lost my license 11 times because, in Australia, the law doesn’t allow for my talent. Enough about me- these tyres are f*****g brilliant. Average 500km a week for work & 250 for fun. Drive in all conditions and these are the first tyres that give enough confidence to not lift under wet conditions because the progressive feel allows you to catch it, every time, even surprisingly- like; I should be dead. On my third set in 18 months. MC6 4lyf!

I used to own a AA Michelin Primacy 4 tyres. which i had decided to give a shot on this AAA grade UHP tyres and the result is delivering what it really meant for. Gripsss!!! Dry handling is awesome whereby you can feel immediately for its braking grip with the road. Wet braking and wet handling is also far better than Primacy 4. What even better is the price of the tyres is far cheaper than the premium Michelin with a far better performance. Can't tell about the wear yet as im just hook on to these babies. Comfort and noise is acceptable for the sake of performance as it absorb the uneven road bump and noise perfectly to my personal rating. I will try for PS4 on my next change to see whether there will be any significant differences between both same grading tyres.

Initially I was quite skeptical to get this MC6 due to the review of the predecessor. But after some KMs driving on it, it turn out quite satisfy for the performance and for the price. On normal urban road, no issue, soaked up all the uneven surface. Expressway speed, stable, quiet. Some weekend drive on country road, push slight harder at corner, surprisingly track well and without hesitation. No tyre squeal.

after comparing several options Continental MC6, Continental UC6, Hankook S1 Noble2 and Hankook ventus prime3. finally my choice fell on Continental MC6.
the ability of tires on dry and wet roads is impressive.
using this tires feels comfortable and low noisy during driving.
Previously, i used Hankook ventus v2 concept2, it felt hard after 17,000KM, although it was still quite good on dry and wet roads and was still low noise. good job hankook and excellent continental 👍👍👍

The tyres surprised me, considering the amount of bad reviews for the MC5, the MC6 is a totally different animal. I've driven the PSS and this comes close to it's dry grip performance.
