Given 93% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Octavia (205/50 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 5,000 easy going miles
I have purchased a brand new skoda octavia last march, that is 6 months ago.
the tires are fitted from the factory.
regarding handling, those are definitely performance oriented tires in the segment of family sedans: they grip among the best, the corner among the best, steering is superb, and in cabin noise level is mid ground and well acceptable within the segment.
no wonder that at 3rd party independent tests, those tires are always rated at places 3rd to 1st.
what is that I don't get - is how many people in here are complaining about wear, as my 7000 km tires (6 months old) still looks new! the thread haven't lost even 1 mm of thickness in the fronts!
this leads me to believe, that those complaining here about wear, are either drivers who drive badly - thus wasting allot of fuel for unnecessary accelerations and after words ton of breaks because they never learned to leave the gas pedal long in advance of a cross road, while they think they are normal drivers, but in reality they are "racing drivers" on public roads all day long. of that their wheel alignment is broken.
for reference:
I am achieving with "grown up careful driving" around 20km per liter outsize city at 100km per hour speed, and 14 km per liter inside city driving, let me remind you this is a petrol engine - not diesel.
driving like that, the tires doesn't bare unnecessary strong forces and the outcome is tires that do not wear - period.
to conclude: those who complain about wear, must first learn how to drive carefully and environmentally correct. and also check their cars wheel alignment.
accelerating like hell and stopping too much because of it every corner and every traffic light, will kill your fuel consumption, kill your breaking pads, and kill your tires - physics 101.
before complaining about wear, think how much of it is due to your inexperienced driving habits, or lack of knowledgeable mechanics of the car domain.
continental contact premium 5 are so far among the best tires I have ever driven during the last 20 years.
**I am 40 years old now - for reference.

Given 84% (breakdown) while driving a (175/65 R14) on for 0 miles
Great tyres... if you want tyres that will let you push your car to the limit then these are definitely a solid choice. However there is a draw back... the wear on these tyres is astronomical... I doubt I'll get 8,000 miles out of the front pair. Not a complaint as I drive it hard but if you only swap your tyres to stay legal and resent the process then you'd be best looking elsewhere. However if you want a good set of tyres that will keep you on the road whilst you push your car to the limit then these are defiantly a good choice.

I won't be getting them again as I'm willing to drive slower for longer wear... but I still rate these tyres very highly... so the choice is yours... they wear VERY fast if you drive hard... you have been warned.

Given 70% (breakdown) while driving a Dacia Logan (185/65 R15 H) on mostly country roads for 15,000 average miles
Great grip on dry roads, acceptable car grips in the wet but with a negative part about wear.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Mk7 TSI (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 12,000 easy going miles
Golf 1.4tsi DSG 2013, tyres are originals, f/rear swap at 10k miles, just under 6mm tread left at 12'600 miles but I am easy driver, 48mpg overall since new. Will buy these again.

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Nissan Livina (195/65 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 65 spirited miles
Car is 7 seater multi-purpose vehicle driven in a tropical country (sunny this morning, rainy on the afternoon). Noticed a dramatic improvement on Dry Grip from the replaced tire yokohama aspec A300 which tends to spin on inclined parking egress. Wet Grip also improved, no break-away even at 100 km/h. Not willing to push to the limit though. Comfort is better, less road noise even on old asphalts.

Only complain is the soft sidewalls, notice a bit of body roll. My solution was to put a little more air (well within the max tire pressure, and within my car's specs). Cannot say about treadwear, tire only saw 3000 km as of this writing with minimal to no observable wear yet. I drive 60km total every day for 5 days a week on a paved road.

Given 66% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf (205/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 40 spirited miles
60,000 km out of the set of 4 tyres,
thats good, counting that there is so much grip in comparing to budget brands.

Given 36% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A6 Avant 2.7T Quattro (235/55 R17) on mostly town for 400 easy going miles
Very noisy at temperatures below +15C. Tires started to squeak at 75 km/h (46 mp/h) in an not hard turn at +28C in dry conditions and that was really surprising. In wet (rain) lost contact on braking for 2 seconds - really scarry. Bought them because of the reviews here. Really dissapointed, ok it's not a sporty tyre but where is premium class - it's noisy even when warm!
