I had Goodyear Eagle F1 run flat tyres fitted on my car when I bought it new. They were very disappointing, two tyres failed and the support from the manufacturer was poor.
After a lot of looking around I decided to buy Continental ContiSportContact™ 5 P. They are excellent in the wet. In fact, at driver training, when I was on the wet skid pan, the trainer said I had to drive 15km/h faster than every other person there (at least 10 other cars) in order for the car to loose traction. They have perfect steering precision and sporty handling and short braking distances on both wet and dry roads.I would recommend Continental ContiSportContact™ 5 P very highly particularly for country roads.
First thing I noticed on purchase vs the Good Year was dramatically less road noise, more comfort, not as hard over bumps, on starting off the tyre would grip the road (dry or wet) and would not spin (even on dry roads the Good Year would lose traction on starting off), and better stopping. They feel much better around corners and the wet than the Good Year tyres. I have done the same number of kms in comparison to when the Goodyear failed (two tyres developed side wall fractures and a bubble formed) and there is plenty of tread and km's left. Still 20,000 later, they are less noisy, more comfortable, better grip than the previouse tyres I had fitted. Not to mention much cheaper. Some say the better grip in the wet means less wear so far I have not seen this at at 20,000km, there will definitely be OK to 30,000 and I would say at least. They have perfect steering precision and sporty handling and short braking distances on both wet and dry roads.I would recommend this tyre very highly particularly for country roads.
I’m driving a lot for a passenger car driver and use lots of cars for that. I have a really good comparison when it comes for tyres of different producers and similar sizes. For me Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 in size 205/55R16 is close to an ideal tyre. I can’t feel ABS work on dry road and I have brakes of 312mm on the front and 256 in the back – like Audi S3. Good handling and grip on bands. Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 is ideal when starting even with my 189HP and 390 Nm car. Continental ContiPremiumcontact 2 is very silent at every speed. Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 has one thing which other sport tyres doesn’t have: it puts out every roughness and holes on a road. On wet road holds road very good ( by far only Uniroyal RainSport was similar ). Aquaplaning just doesn’t exist for Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 and when it drifts you still have time to react. Besides, riding on a wet road is very silent. Buying Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 I knew they might wear quite fast – I didn’t mind. I only wanted to have good rubber parameters and comfort of driving. So far I drove about 15000 miles and still 60-65% tread left. So durability is normal as other premium class tyres. I really recommend buying Continental ContiPremiumContact 2 as they are worth every single pound spent on them.
I was driving to Germany in Christmas 2014 so had to buy winters but I only do around 5000 miles per year so didn't want the expense of separate wheels and both winter / summer tyres. I checked Continental's UK website and they recommended in the UK, if you are only to run one set of tyres, winters would be preferable. I purchased the 830Ps after seeing them rated top in a number of winter reviews but, more importantly, finished above budget brands in a summer tyre review (most people are concerned about winter performance in summer).
Personally, I have had no trouble on these tyres, they have gripped well in all conditions from sub zero to 25 degrees c in the summer and in both wet and dry. Note, I have not driven in snow but would expect them to perform well.
I have a reasonable right foot and like a good brisk drive through the countryside occasional :-) - in terms of wear, I just had a check up at local BMW dealer and after nearly 1 year and 5k miles the fronts are still close to 8mm and backs are at 7mm so plenty of wear left.
I have a mix of mainly town traffic driving but occasional 200 mile motorway journeys. The are quite noisy and I do feel a little more bumpy than previous summer tyres but overall not to the point of being annoying.
If you're looking for winters at normal tyre sizes without having to buy two sets then I thoroughly recommend these tyres for your BMW.
The size of my Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 tyres is 185/65R15. The tyres have very soft rubber compound - I thought that I would destroy the tyre when I accidentally hit a hole. The behaviour of the tyres in dry conditions at 90 MPH is marvellous. They are almost inaudible and do not mix with the sound of the engine (1.9 DCI). I also had an emergency situation at ca. 50 MPH - I had to make a sudden maneuver, and the car didn't swerve at all. The car behaved exactly as I wanted. The behaviour of Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 on wet surface is also very predictable. I could drive through deep puddles of water without any problems. Braking is also good. They don't fall into aquaplaning, both during sudden braking (ABS is switched on, of course) and in the corners. And now the best. Behaviour on snow. Paved road, snow, speed of 45 MPH and the car behaves as if it was on dry surface, even in tight corners! I had a situation where the guy behind me was driving an Audi 80, I don't know what tyres he had, but he was on my rear bumper almost till the end, where he swerved off into the outside lane (luckily it was free). When it comes to behaviour on ice, of course there will be no miracle and only studded tyres will be good. However, I can recommend Continental ContiWinterContactTM TS830 with a clear conscience.
I have bought Continental ContiProContact tyres as a spare in my Ford Focus 1.4. The Continental ContiProContact offer an excellent grip in cornering and lane changes, they absorb well enough for uneven terrain. Unfortunately Continentals have quite high noise level and the sound is regular and annoying. This increases as the speed increases. Any irregularity of the road increase this annoying noise of the tyres. Only on asphalt perfect noise subsides. I thought it was a bearing problem, but after changing the noise continued. The edges of the tyres rubber began to deteriorate. I am not sure will I buy Continentals in the future.
These tires have been fitted to the company's car in the company which I work for. Continentals are something between summer and winter of Continental's tyres. I never wanted to buy tyres for all seasons as being intermediates for both, do not theoretically well neither "work". These tyres are good on the wet, but not necessary on dry surfaces. If it's too hot the tread is wearing much quicker. At colder temperatures they are much better. In essence, depends on the use and where you live. I would recommend these Continental ContiProContact tyres to users driving mostly in the city.
