Top Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV Review

Given 59% while driving a Hyundai Tucson (245/45 R19) on a combination of roads for 13,000 easy going miles
Standard fitting on Hyundai Tucson SE Premium. Lasted less than 13000 miles on front axle. Is it my driving? I don't think so. Previous car was Hyundai IX35 SE Premium (basically the same car), changed front tyres on that one at 31000 miles. Previous car to that was a Discovery TD5, tyres lasted 40000 miles between changes so its not my driving! Ok for feedback and grip and noise levels but will not be buying as replacements

Given 79% while driving a Opel insignia (235/50 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
The tyres are factory fitted on Open Insignia B Country Tourer. The car is set up mainly for comfort a much less for sporty driving. The tyres correspond with the setting nicely. Even though CSC5 is sporty tyre according to the name they are quiet and refined. The grip in dry is good and in the wet very good. The tyres are progresive at the limit in wet but the steering in Insignia does not give much information to the driver.
The only other tyre I can compare to at the same car is winter Matador MP92 in the same size. The comfort and noise level is very similar. To my surprise even the steering feel is somewhat similar. Maybe that is given mostly by the high sidewall profile of the tyres for Country Tourer version of Insignia or the SUV version of CSC5 aims for more comfort.
Many people complain about the wear rate. In my case the front wheels lost 1 mm of tread depth and rear wheels 0.5 mm of tread depth in 10,000 kms. In my opinion that is very reasonable wear for tyres with such a good wet grip.
Overall I am very satisfied with CSC5 SUV. The grip in both dry and wet is very good and they are comfortable and quiet. The only disadvantage is price. For the future Falken FK510 or Fulda SportControl 2 might be a good and cheaper replacement.

Given 51% while driving a Ford Edge (225/55 R19 W) on mostly country roads for 12,000 easy going miles
I bought a Ford Edge automatic in December 2017 and the Continental tyres are worn out after 12,500 miles. The rear tyres are worn to 2 mm and the front ones are illegal.

In 2013 I had a Volvo XC90 whose Continental tyres needed replacing after about 13,000 so I am beginning to think Continentals are not a good choice for large SUVs.

What's better in the snow, a 4x4 or winter tyres? Watch the video to find out!
Given 70% while driving a Ford 05 Mondeo 185 (modded) diesel (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 5,000 easy going miles
I purchased a Ford Edge 2.0 Titanium 210bhp with these fitted. Having covered just over 5000 miles the rears are at 3.2mm(max) and the fronts are at 5.2mm max. At this rate I’ll have to replace all before 10,000 miles - absolutely disgusting. Will not buy Continental tyres to replace them.

Hyundai (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 13,000 easy going miles
Very high wear rate on Hyundai Tuscon 1.7 diesel on front driven axle after 13000 miles only 3mm left and will need replacing in the next 1500 miles at 2mms for safety. Previous car Jaguar XFS Dunlop Maxx on driven axle lasted 45000 miles.
Might try Michelin all season tyres.
