Cadillac 2014 ctsv Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Continental ExtremeContact Sport 02 given 98% (245-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
I considered all models of summer tires before choosing Continental ECS02. I had certain criteria, some of which were needs while others were wants. I needed Y speed rating to pass tech inspection on my car for Nevada’s Silver State Classic in fall. I also wanted a mileage warranty and a top flight manufacturer with a storied pedigree in Motorsport… one who knows how to make a quality product beyond round black rubber rings. I also rejected all run flats and tires that have mediocre reviews after years on the market.

I also have a second set of 200tw tires/wheels for auto-x and HPDE days, so I

After all that, there remained the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S (mega bucks but 30k warranty), Potenza Sport (no mileage warranty and atrocious treadlife reports, $$$), Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar 3 (great tire but $$$$, no mileage warranty, and a 220 utqg, limited availability), Falken Azenis FK510 (no warranty, no-hum looks, inconsistent reports of performance versus touring tire, but $$$ pricing was a plus), and the Continental ECS02 ($$$ with the rebate, 30k warranty, roadside assistance and troop interruption coverage all included, schwing!)

At time of writing, prices were: Michelin $1,261; Continental $1,017; Bridgestone $981; Falken $815. $220 Conti rebate bright the ECS to $797. This became a no-brainer on price point alone. A are top-shelf tires at mid-tier pricing!

In summary, these tires have been SUPERLATIVE! They perform in lock step with Michelin’s Pilot Sport 4S, the cream of the current UUHP summer crop. They have equal performance with a slightly differentiated character while offering stunningly good comfort and road manners.

I have one good spirited drive on these ECS02 over twisty roads and they exhibit great steering feedback with a solid, weighty feel off center (which I was worried about based on the opposite issue with DWS06+ tires recently). Effort builds very linearly as you put it through its paces.

I do find there is a bit of vagueness on center for freeway cruising and I over-adjust some as a result but, I also have a relatively high camber setup for blended street and HPDE uses which may contribute some.

Comparing these to Michelin Pilot Sport AS3+ using a decibel meter mounted in the vehicle over the same road way at similar speeds and conditions, these tires average 1.5-2dB lower using an A sound weighting. This is flat-out impressive.

They are handsome tires but could be made a bit wider as they look (and are) narrower than equivalent sizes from competitors. This is only an issue for the OCD tire folks (like me), most wouldn’t even notice.

Anyway, I’ll try to update after a few thousand miles.

Writing about the Atlas Force UHP given 90% (-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
I searched for tires with the same speed rating, traction and temperature rating as the highest rated performance all season tires (all big name brand tires). I’ve had success for years finding high quality less expensive tires using this method, and often it’s a new brand seeking market penetration with price. These Atlas UHP TIRES are competitive in wet, dry, and hard use performance driving, and wear appears to be better than competitive, but maybe too soon to tell as I only have 6,000 miles on them so far. I have staggered width wheels and larger 295/30 19’s on the rear with 255/35 19’s on the front.

Driving on track for 4000 spirited miles
Good for high horsepower applications they definitely have their limits around 700whp and wore quite fast mast 4000 miles but oh were they nice while they lasted
