Continental Tire Reviews

Updated 9/22/17

Continental Tire is one of the oldest and largest tire companies in the world. It is actually a German company, with U.S. headquarters in South Carolina. They also own the General Tire company. They provide the OEM tire for many German makes such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche. You will find that most of their tires have the word "Contact" in the name, and they have even trademarked them, for example, ExtremeContact™.

Touring All-Season

Continental TrueContact
4.5 out of 5 based on 70 user ratings as of 11/22/17.
The TrueContact is on our Best Tires list in the Touring category for cars and crossover vehicles. It is one of the best All-Season tires in light and deep snow situations, even though it is not a substitute for a true winter tire. However, if you can't or don't want to maintain a separate set of snow tires, the TrueContact is a great 4-season tire. Read all Continental TrueContact Reviews at TireBuyer

Grand Touring All-Season

Continental PureContact
4.5 out of 5 based on 85 user ratings as of August 2016.
The PureContact was rated the #1 performance tire pick for 2016 by Consumer Reports. It does not have the same snow traction ratings as the TrueContact, though it is more a performance oriented tire. The Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus is the best reviewed GT tire, by a small margin. Read all PureContact Reviews

Continental ContiProContact
3.5 out of 5 based on 122 user ratings as of 9/22/17. We cannot recommend this tire. Many reviewers found they had to replace their tires earlier than expected due to faster than expected wear. We saw the same experience multiple times, with some reviewers stating that they rotated their tires as scheduled. The PureContact is a far better pick if it comes in your tire size.

Continental ContiProContact with ContiSeal
3.0 out of 5 based on 2 user ratings as of August 2016. The ContiSeal is an interesting concept, but is perhaps too fussy in real driving. Stick one of these Fix-a-Flat kits in your car and go with a conventional tire. Read all ContiProContact with ContiSeal Reviews

Ultra High Performance All-Season

Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06
4.5 out of 5 based on 111 user ratings as of 11/22/17. The ExtremeContact DWS 06 has the best snow traction rating among UHP A/S tires at the Tire Rack, making this a fantastic choice for those who need a true 4-season tire on their performance vehicle. One negative is that the steering response/feel is not as good as other UHP A/S tires. Buyers should take note that numerous drivers have complained that the tires feel "squirmy" during aggressive driving. Continental offers a 50k mile limited warranty. Read all DWS 06 Reviews
