Comment:
Continental does not warrant tread life on tires sold through dealerships on new cars. So the 70k tread life warranty is just another sales gimmick.<br />The dealership recommended to have the tires replaced after 32,000. Obviously, that is the last time I purchase a Continental tire.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Since the purchase, I had been happy. But now, the tires have 26,000 miles on them and they already need to be replaced. They have worn evenly. Not even close to what I had expected when I read reviews on this tire. I do not recommend!

Comment:
Tires make the steering wheel vibrate while on highway. Forget about it if you happen to be pulling a trailer.<br /><br />The tires have 27,333 miles on them and I'm already contemplating a new set of tires.
