I bought these tires model end of August 2019 and now is July 2022. I had 187.000 miles when installed and now I have 247.000 miles on my car. So 60.000 miles on these tires no problem, very satisfied. The tires are not bald, the "D" sign is visible which means I still have traction on "Dry". But even when raining didn't have a problem recently. We don't have real winters here in my state.

Done about 2k miles and seems very good so far. Very quite and a absorbs and dulls bumps very well. Not super sporty but very good for what it's advertised to do!

After driving on the YOKOHAMA factory tires on my 2016 Lexus NX 200t for two winters and 19K miles, these tires were a much-welcomed addition. These tires are great in the snow, rain, and on dry roads, and by far some of the best tires I have purchased. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an all-season tire where snow or rain is involved.

I am pleased with the Continental performance so far especially compared with the factory Firestone tires that the Conti's replaced.
