Continental Premium Contact 2 Reviews

Given 59% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat 500 (185-55-15-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
These tires are good for town driving, but if you lose grip it happens way too fast, so fast it scared me. They lasted me about 60,000 km's, so definately last long. The fact that they are so unprogressive though, and are really expensive (i did not buy them they came stock with the car), has led me not to buy these tires again.

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Saab Automobile 9000 Turbo (195-65-15-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 18,000 spirited miles
I was not interested In mpg / environment / mileage ... all I wanted was a tyre with fantastic grip and safety . I drive a powerful heavy front wheel drive and the grip ,quiet ride and feedback I get is fantastic . Although it was not important to me they have covered 16k swapped front to back at 7k and the fronts are still not near the wear markers . I was in the motor trade for 26 yrs so know my tyres !

I have driven 4 Premium Contact 2 for about 34000 km, mostly on highways and on all weather conditions. I am most happy with these tyres. I absolutely recommend them.

Great set of tyres. Not had them on for long but so impressed so far, especially on fuel economy. Full tank usually lasts one week but since havingg these put on im 5 days through and still have just over half a tank left! Feels a lot smoother to drive. Great buy

After 27000 miles the back tyres look like new but i am again looking for new tyres . Slippery when wet and wheel spin with a baby diesel ? Aquaplaning has been a problem also , never had that in the past with any car . Ok tyres but wrong car .

Fitted on front to replace worn out Sport Contact 2, no longer available.
Lasted about 16k, seem reasonable but disappointed with wear for £100+ tyre.

(NB: Am reviewing the 2E, not sure if there is any major difference between the 2 and 2E)

Dry grip is fair but nothing to write home about; Little understeery when pushed. Wet grip is fantastic, handles almost the same as when it's dry!

Not too noisy but could be quieter, esp. at motorway speeds.

Wear rate is good; Much longer lasting than the newer PCP5 that I replaced them with. Did seem to wear a bit more on the shoulders but found upping the pressures by ~5psi over stock cured this without affecting grip noticeably, and gave a slight boost to economy to boot!
