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.

Continental ContiProContact Tire Review

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.


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


  • 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.

  1. I bought a 2020 ford connect. I have 20,000 miles on it and 2 of the tires have blown out from the sides. I would never recommend these tires.

  2. I changed my Michelin Primacy 3ST (Factory Originals) at 83,000kms with Continental ContiPremiumContact® 5 for my Toyota Camry Hybrid 2019, country run, long drives, hardly any city driving. The car has now done 98,000kms (15,000 on the Conti tyres) and they are already showing signs of wear. My mechanic and Toyota both tell me its got another 10,000kms before they need replacing again. Biggest waste of money ever!

    Noise: 4/5

    Grip: 5/5
    Life: 25,000kms 0/5

  3. I recently purchased a 2020 Ford Escape with Continental ContiProContact tires. I’ve driven over 1,000,000 miles in 40 years and I’ve never been frightened to drive on slippery roads more than I am now with these tires. I would not recommend this tire to anyone.

  4. I have 18,650 miles on a 2018 Chevrolet Trax that was purchased new with Continental Contipro 205 70 R16 tires. These tires are worn down evenly to 3/32″, and will not pass the next inspection. No alignment, tire pressure, or other mechanical issues. These tires have a very poor tread life, and I would not recommend them. I got better mileage on recapped tires in the old days!

  5. Had 2 sets of these tires. Lasted only 30,000 miles. Nissan Versa is 2011 and only has 60,000 miles and this is the 2nd set of tires. Live in a mild climate and hardly bad conditions.

  6. I have 65000 on a Civic Sport and will probably replace with same tire. Awsome handling with medium road noise. Great wet weather traction.

  7. I have over 50,000 on my Ford Escape SE. I live in Florida and tires do not last long down here because of the seashell in the Asphalt. I was looking into the Michelin Defender LTX. The reviews are terrible for tread life. I think I will stick with these. At least I know I can get 50,000 out of them and for down here, that’s pretty darn good.

  8. Very poor tread life. There are 20,436 miles on the tires and the Mercedes dealer said they needed replacement. They have a tread life rating of 500. Our Michelins on another Mercedes also have the same tread rating and they have 56,000 miles with lots of tread left. These tires are actually more expensive than the Michelins but have lower life. The dealer said our tread life was “typical” for these tires. Yikes!

    1. Hey Shannon,
      We have received similar reviews for its tread life also.Please check out our other reviews to find the best pick for your car.

  9. Its the OE tire on a 2015 Ford Escape AWD, I am very pleased with them. 74,000 miles and evenly worn to slightly above the wear bars. Handled very well in snow, rain, even off road a few times. If my local dealer had these tires I would buy them again.

    1. Hi Christina
      Glad to hear about your experience with the Continental ContiProContact Tire. Hearing the tire’s performed well for you in the snow is especially important, we found the snow performance could be improved upon by the manufacturer. We hope you can find these tires at a dealership near you, and they perform just as well if not better.

  10. 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.
