    These tyres provide a very good grip on the BMW E46 when starting with full acceleration. While torque is 350 nm and power of 160 horsepower, even in the rain tyres do not slip, and the car has basically the same acceleration from 0-100 as on dry surface. The only disadvantage is the weak performance of the tyres while rapid lane changing when car begins to swing. In my previous Pirelli P6 tyres it was easier to lose traction but while controlled drifting, a car wasn't swinging at all. These do not lose traction but it seems like there's no air in them. Generally, the tyre provides very good traction, I do not understand why the manufacturer puts on such soft sides, which in my opinion does not use potential of these tyres. I recommend the product but for normal driving, I drive using 100% of engine power and suspension capabilities and I should have bought something low-profiled. What's more I replaced whole suspension in the front and rear 2 months ago + shock absorbers and Eibach Pro kit springs. Geometry is set, so nobody will think that I'm driving a garbage car and that I'm blaming tyres for bad behavior of the vehicle. Regards

    Tyres would be fantastic because they perfectly stick to the road, suppress inequalities, they are soft and comfortable. Braking on dry road - brilliant: I didn't feel so confident on any tyres while sharp braking as on those Continentals. On wet it's also okay. I won't judge a look of these tyres because for me it's completely irrelevant even though there certainly better looking ones. Unfortunately for me, the gums are loud, unpleasant sound arises from approx. 50 km / h, and the most troublesome is approximately 80-90 km / h, which is really in terms of speed. Of course we must note that a manufacturer placed loudness of 72 db on the label. I rode on Yokohama tyres with such volume and it was a little bit better. Certainly not all the noise will bother, I'm generally very sensitive person, what's more my Toyota Avensis has less than the average muted body. But the fact is that the Michelin Primacy 3 was much quieter in exchange for which its traction were terrible. In short, sensational tyre for those who don't care too much about rolling noise and for those who do: they surely have muted cars or cool audio systems.

    Car has astray package that makes the body liable to more unpleasant vibrations even on theoretically level road. It terribly annoyed me so I dumped a first factory tyres and then even tried two sets of leading manufacturers tyres, unfortunately with very poor results. Only after mounting ContiPremium ones, all irritants convulsions and vibrations has stopped. Wheels' rumbling on rough roads also disappeared. Tyres lead very confident on winding roads, both dry and wet (I live fairly high up in the mountains and on this basis I judge). I know that my statement smacks of marketing whispered, but I can not help it if these Conti tyres are just like that - close to the ideal in most areas. In conclusion, let me add that the market certainly offers some other, equally successful tyres, but I am not going to reinvent the wheel again. Currently, I lead a war with characteristic convulsions in AUDI A6 but after several unsuccessful attempts, I know that until I put these tyres on, i won't achieve desired effects. Greetings.

    Very good tyre, I couldn't lose a grip on both dry and wet surface conditions and both in sharp bends, and the dynamic traction. After driving around 20.000 km you do not see big signs of wear, I thought it would be much worse. In fact, the tyre design may disappoint - for this price, it could look better but looks average, However, handling proved to be excellent, which can confirm the belief that the tyre has to fulfill its task. Confirmed the reasonableness of the purchase while critical situation on the road to the A9 motorway in Germany in Nuremberg. At a speed of 150 km / h someone drove up the road and I immediately reflected on the steering wheel from side to side and car skidded a bit. Although you could feel the huge overload and car's tendency to go sideways, the tyres held like glue, just lazily squealed. The first thought that occurred to me was the reasonableness of the tyre's selection. I would definitely recommend it to all. In the high-priced, but guarantee 100% safety.

    I drive mainly in the city: holes, even surfaces, tracks, plates, etc. The fact that driving is great is nothing special, also on the highway at high speeds. Sticks to the road perfectly. But I had the opportunity to drive around city when there was cloudburst in the summer. There was a river on the road and I had absolutely no problems with driving. Even at the fast start, the wheels did not spin. I was even shocked (my first tyres bought as new ones) that the tyre could hold on to the road so much. Earlier I had Pirelli P6000 and it was very poor on wet surfaces. It was tragic on the road when you entered the puddle - I had to hold the steering wheel tightly, the car slowed down a lot. I don't have this problem with Continental. Even with holes on the side of the road, with puddles, the car goes very well, does not slow down and the steering wheel does not jump back. Very good tyres.

C A 71 dB

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.

Noise

Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
