    Top 3 Continental Cross Contact AT Reviews

    Given 93% while driving a Land Rover Defender (235/85 R16) on mostly country roads for 24,000 average miles
    Cannot understand some of the reviews for the Cross Contact AT. These tyres are an excellent all round performer. They are less than half worn at 24,000 miles so I am looking to get around 50k+ out of them. They perform wet or dry are capable off road and have an acceptable noise level on a defender which is not exactly quiet anyway. My usage is 70% county roads 25% "A" roads or motorways and 5% off road. For any tyre to have to handle all of the above summer and winter is a big ask and this tyre is very good.

    Latest Continental Cross Contact AT Reviews

    Given 94% while driving a Land Rover Defender (235/85 R16) on a combination of roads for 80,778 average miles
    These tyres were original tyres fitted to my new 2015 Land Rover Defender. They were subjected to varied on road and off road conditions in Southern Africa. They are now being replaced at 130 000km (80778 mi) with legal tread on all tyres. They handled well in both wet and dry conditions with no punctures on any tyre. The performance in sand was better than mud. My one complaint is that the tread traps and throws stones, require checking for stone boring into the tread. I have long been a fan of BFG All Terrain KO but I have never had a tyre last like these tyres, note I maintain a rigorous rotation, balancing and alignment program. I can strongly recommend these tyres as 70/30 multi purpose tyres.

    These are the "summer" tyres on my Defender, for winter use I have BFG A/T which I am more than happy with. Two points I want to make about the Continentals: 1: Whilst they are not directional they do wear in a manner governed by direction. If they are swapped from side ti side they sound very much as if all the wheel bearings are about to fail. Not nice. 2: On snow and ice at about freezing point they are much more likely to spin than the BFGs.

    All Season VS Winter Tyres: What is REALLY Best?! Click to find out!
    Ford (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 14,000 average miles
    THe tyres are comfortable and quite. They handle pretty good on tar and on gravel, but the wear is not good at all. After 14,000km i note some concerning wear on the tyres with bits coming off. For an off road tyre, well I would not buy them again. They have super thin sidewalls and are more expensive than some other tyres which are better suited in this area. I would say these tyres are 70:30 geared towards tar. To be honest I am disappointed.

    Done 57000 miles on first set since new. Am renewing tomorrow as only one is worn to the limit. Best mileage for a set of tyres ever. Cannot reccomend more. Good off-road - we live at Bog House Farm, which says it all.

    not sure on other posts claiming unbelievably low mileage before wearing out. Mine came with the defender as new and have done 50,000 miles so far, with loads of life left. I anticipate at least another 10,000. Road noise is good (for a defender) and off road grip has been absolutely fine during mild conditions (green laning etc). They feel utterly safe at motorway speeds and have been extremely resistant to damage by sharp objects etc both on the sidewalls and tread, which doesn't show evidence of missing chunks as some other tyres out there do.

    bought as new-take offs with new wheels for my 2004 Land Rover, and these are well behaved on the road, with good support for offroad sites. Not brilliant in the mud as a full on MT tyre, but these are 50/50 M&S rated tyres which suit my 20,000 miles a year very well.
    I recommend them over the UHP (General Grabber TR) which I had before, as a better all round all season tyre. For sure, slightly noisier and slightly lower (about 1-2mpg) than the TR, but the TR is 70% road biased. There's always a trade off, and this is one I'm happy with. I average 29.5-33.7 mpg depending on traffic and terrain.

    These are the summer tyres on my Defender and are acceptable. In winter I have BFG A/Ts which are quieter and have better grip/traction on snow and ice. Neither tyres have worn much, but when the Contis wear out I'll replace them with a quieter "summer" tyre. It's a Defender so I have not exploredred progressiveness or dry grip!!

    A total rubbish tyre, they came on my new defender, have done only driving on the road and are half gone after 3 thousands miles. Got stuck on grass. The 235 which is the width is not the tread width, the actual tread width is 185. That've ally annoyed me as I wanted 235 tyre width. I'll be lucky to get 7k miles out of them, very disappointed to say the least
