Continental ContiProContact Tire Review & Rating

Continental has used some of its latest technology in creating the ContiProContact. Engineered for drivers of foreign and domestic coupes and sedans, this tire sports an all-season touring design that is built for both performance and comfort.

The symmetrical tread design is made from an all-season tread compound that combines with optimized sipes around the tread that interlock for enhanced stability and dry handling and traction. Optimized shoulder lugs provide increased steering response and stability.

ContiProContact from Continental Tire

Wide circumferential grooves and the interlocking sipes improve wet surface traction, while Continental’s unique ProActiveEdge Technology adds over 750 arched edges around the tire to provide better traction during stormy weather and poor road conditions. A center rib groove adds more comfort by reducing tread noise and vibration.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon to give the tire added strength and stability at higher speeds. Continental includes either a 60,000 or 80,000 mile tread life warranty depending on the tire’s speed rating.

Pros

  • Excellent dry traction and cornering grip   
  • Ride is smooth and comfortable   
  • Low road noise   

Cons

  • Low treadlife has been an issue for some   
  • Winter handling could be just a bit better   

Overall Thoughts

The ContiProContact is one of those tires that offers great performance in some areas, while it underperforms in others. For example, this model provides top of the line traction and handling on dry road surfaces. It also sports a smooth and quiet ride, making it one of the better touring tires in its class.

However, many drivers have complained about poor treadwear and not getting the mileage out of the tire as they had expected. Another problem is the drop in winter performance, especially on icy pavement. While this is not a winter tire of course, traction could be a littler better than it is.

Overall, we rank this model in the middle of the touring all-season class.

15,000 miles and these need to be replace. These are OE on Buick Encore AWD Crossovers. Shame on Buick for putting these junky tires on a $29,000 Vehicle.
