The Continental VikingContact 7 is an excellent winter tire, that’s for sure. It does all the basics right, especially in harsh wintry conditions. On snow and ice, it performs outstandingly well, better than almost any other competitor. It also lasts for a long time and works well on dry and wet surfaces.
According to Continental, the TerrainContact A/T is the “ideal all-terrain tire for CUV, SUV and Light Trucks with the durability to conquer dirt, gravel, and grass while providing a quiet, comfortable ride on pavement.”
I’ll cover every aspect of the tire, including on-road dynamics and comfort, snow traction, off-road traction, and durability.
Before we do that, though, let’s see what features Continental utilized in the tire to make it stand out from the competition.
One of the best examples of why touring tires are so popular is the TrueContact Tour. Continental’s standard touring all-season tire is one of the most popular on the market. It’s very safe in dry and wet conditions, and drives well over snow, too. It glides gently and quietly on the road and lasts for a very long time.
Owners of passenger cars look for performance, comfort, and long wear when purchasing new tires. Those that drive large SUVs or pickup trucks, though, also look for extra toughness. More accurately, these people want a tire that can carry much heavier payloads, while also resisting the abrasive nature of hardpacked surfaces.
Continental recently entered this portion of the market with a new product called the TerrainContact H/T. With this tire, the company aims to provide drivers with great overall on-road performance, tough and durable casing for a better tow and haul capability, and long-lasting performance.
Continental offers the CrossContact LX25 in many popular sizes, ranging from 16-inch wheel diameter to 22-inch wheel diameter. This means that the tire will fit smaller compact crossovers and SUVs, but also large SUVs and trucks.
Moreover, Continental also offers the tire in LT-metric sizes. That is excellent news for large truck and SUV owners that want a dependable tire solution for towing and hauling.
If you’re in the market for a set of tires for your family car, the Continental TrueContact is the safest bet out there. It’s not very expensive, yet it will last you for a long time. It is also supremely quiet and comfortable, and outstandingly safe in dry and wet conditions. It’s really hard to find any real faults with the TrueContact – this is easily one of the best standard-touring tires right now.
If you want a set of tires that combine luxury and sport like no other, then you should go for the PureContact LS. Sure, you may find cheaper tires that promise the same qualities, but the Continental will beat them in almost every category. This is a tire that has almost no fault, to be honest. Right now, it is definitely one of the best grand-touring tires on the market and one that deserves to be installed on your expensive wheels.
If you’re in the market for touring tires for your truck, crossover or SUV, you should at least consider Continental CrossContact LX20. This tire is consistently among the best in every category, and even outright beats its competitors in some of them. Overall, it is a quiet tire that will give you very good handling and stability, outstanding wet traction and braking, and even some light off-road traction. The jack of all trades for SUV and crossover tires!
High-performance tires are known for maintaining steady grip in adverse conditions. But the Continental ControlContact Sport A/S offers more than excellent wet and dry grip. This tire is perfect for fast compacts, performance sedans, and sporty crossovers. But it also excels in light snow and ice while maintaining decent levels of year-round comfort.
Based on the aforementioned facts, it seems the ControlContact Sport A/S belongs in the pantheon of the best all-season performance tires, and rightfully so. But there’s a right tire for every car. In this regard, the Continental ControlContact Sport A/S might be too much for your daily driver.
In this review, we’ll look deeper into the features of the Continental ControlContact Sport A/S. We’ll also reveal the compromises to all the relentless all-season grip this tire has to offer.
The Continental ContiProContact is all about balance. It offers decent levels of luxury and all-season performance along with a comfortable ride. It may look like a sportier set of rubber but it’s a proper grand touring tire for European luxury-sport vehicles.
But the most stellar attribute of the Continental ContiProContact is the low price. You can buy a set of these tires for less than $450. Admittedly, that’s still a lot of money for a performance touring tire, but you get terrific value considering the features and capabilities of the ContiProContact.
In this review, you’ll find out if the Continental ContiProContact is the right tire for your vehicle. We’ll also discuss the many attributes of this tire to figure out what makes it stand out from the rest of the competition.
