If you mean what kind of problems with the cross contacts (OE tires), most are complaining about the tread life (low mileage) and noise. Though I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's really just the noise towards the end of the tire life that is bothering people which is pretty typical of any tire. In my experience, every time I get new tires (if they are at least of a comparable type) the road noise goes down really because of the age of the old tires. Same thing happens when I even get the exact same tires as replacements - noise goes down.aljus said:thank you for ur replies.
frisco , i again looked up the extreme contact conti's on tire rack site and it describes it as ultra high performance all season tire made for sports cars,sports coups, performance sedans and sport trucks and it is actually rated #1 in their survey if u look in the survey section.
what kind of problems did the previous owners experience with these tires :?: :think:
Wheels and tires touching curbs = no no. The sound is horrific and tears me up inside just thinking about it, kinda like watching slow motion sports injury replays...umbertob said:I also thought the sidewall of the Conti OEMs was way too delicate: I lost quite a few chunks of it when I lightly brushed them against a couple of curbs in the first few months of ownership.
Of course, my wife did it.TriGem2k said:Wheels and tires touching curbs = no no.
