Top 3 Continental ProContact Reviews

Given 33% while driving a Saab Automobile 95 (245/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,200 spirited miles
Tires have flat spot. Put on new car. Car shimmied at 65mph and 72 mph so much steering wheel shook. Dealer said drive and he will rebalance. He rebalanced and car stopped terrible shake at 65 mph and now has one at 75 mph and shakes all over. He said drive 1000 miles and let flat spots run out. I did ... work than ever. Asking for a replacement. This is the new 9-5 a heavier (4250 lbs) sport sedan. Handles amazingly well when there is not the terrible shaking.

Given 43% while driving a Mercedes Benz E550, 4matic, airmatic (245/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 10 spirited miles
dry and wet are "safe for the type of car it is" - I've never broken it lose but some high-speed stops are scary - tires have 10k miles and are getting very noisy - comfort is not what I expect for a luxury car and tire - I'm in the process of selecting a replacement set of tires because of the ride quality and noise -BTW I'm in North America

Given 56% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (215/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 2,500 average miles
I got them on my company car for the summer 2019, so nothing crazy. They are reasonnable in the dry and they squeal very early before understeering safely. They also do well in extreme heat. Not very impressive in the wet, but least they will not try to kill you. Noisy and slightly harsh at highway speeds. Surprisingly sturdy off-road (keeping in mind it's fitted on an FWD compact car), decent grip and no puncture by pinching the sidewall. That would probably a great tire for a van, but perhaps not the best choice for a car.

Given 66% while driving a Tesla (225/45 R19) on mostly motorways for 32,000 average miles
These were OEM tires on our Tesla Model Y Long Range. We live in Minnesota. The tires are excellent on dry roads and above average on wet roads. Traction in snow is below average for "all season" tires.
It looks like the tires will go about 37,000 miles, not bad for a 4,500 pound car with gobs of torque and great handling.

Given 77% while driving a Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.0, 200hp RWD (225/45 R18) on mostly motorways for 22,000 average miles
Reviewing Continental ProContact RX SSR Runflat OEM Alfa Romeo. Very good all around everyday tire, both on dry surface and heavy rain. Some people says runlflat tires make ride bumpy, I didn't really noticed this on my Giulia. Only issue with these tire is mileage, was able to do only 22000 miles (tire rotated annually), similar issue with Bridgestone Turanza EL450 RFT OEM Alfa Romeo I installed afterward. I never had such a bad mileage on other cars with similar driving style, I think that has something to do with those tires being runflats or OEM Alfa Romeo perhaps. Wear is more prominent on shoulders.

Given 71% while driving a Honda Civic 1.5T (235/40 R18) on mostly motorways for 16,000 average miles
I have Continental ProContact tire on my 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport Touring model. It is the standard tire from factory. My impression is they has quite a bit of road noise after 100 kph. It is more echo sound generated with the road surface. The grip on dry is okay. The sidewall is a bit soft, so during hard cornering it leans a bit. Have not tested in winter with ice and snow. It has the M+S rating. But I am not sure how it preforms.

Given 100% while driving a Hyundai Accent (185/65 R15) on mostly motorways for 4,000 average miles
My 2022 Hyundai Accent SEL came with these Continental tires as OEM. I have recently owned a 2019 Toyota Camry LE & a 2021 Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Neither of these proved to be as quiet as the Hyundai Accent. I attribute this quiet to exceptional Continental Protrac TX tires. The road noise is just not noticeable. The handling is very good. I cannot speak for wear as the tires are new. I do not run All Season tires in winter. I have had Continental tires in the past, but the Protrac TX are the very best. One does not expect such great tires on a compact entry-level economy car. My hats off to Hyundai for choosing this tire. BTW, rolling resistance is very low, as proven by my average fuel economy of 38.7 mpg at 74mph with A/C on. My best? 44.6 mpg.

Given 93% while driving a Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 TSI 200HP (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
Good tyres for my driving style. Not noisy, not so soft and not so hard. I bouht a new set of tyres instead the old one. Dry and wet grip is good. Driving is comfort. I drive calmly, not too fast. I dont driving in winter conditions.

Given 21% while driving a Nissan Versa (185/65 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 500 easy going miles
ProContactE are noisy tyre from Continental that constantly rumble into the ears of every occupant of the small Versa saloon car. It's not useful feedback, just annoying noise that's always present to interfere with conversation, or spoil the music you want to hear from the stereo. Tyre noise always present while the car is moving, louder on some road surfaces than others.

Through the steering wheel, these tyres feel sort of soggy as well, even on dry tarmac or concrete, whether cruising in a straight lane or sweeping around curves; in fairness they never actually slid off the road, they just felt soft and not precise at all. Yes, they were at the correct pressures recommended by Nissan. On soaking wet roads they seemed more inclined to wander or aquaplane/hydroplane than other tyres on other cars in similar conditions unless speed was reduced. This particular rental car had about 15k miles, with the front Continentals about half worn in comparison to the rear pair, suggesting only 30k miles of useful life if rotated. In the 21st century, there are much better, quieter, grippier tyres to choose than these.
