Top Continental Sport Contact 2 Review

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a BMW E60 M5 (275/30 R19) on mostly town for 65 easy going miles
hey guys and gals out there tire shopping, ive had every tire brand out there in the past 30 years, these sport contact 2 came with my 2008 bmw 550i M-sport from factory, No road noise , grip is great, steering feels lighter then most tires.
When these wore down 65,000 kms later I was selling my car and bought some cheap new tires called Zenna Argus Uhp and Omg worst mistake ever, faster the car went louder the humming got , looked 2 sizes bigger due to thickness of tires, felt like I had No power steering, Long story short I would buy Conti's again over any tire again !!! hope this helped pay the price but Oh well !!

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Superb II combi 2.0 tdi cr (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 22,000 average miles
The tyres perform incredibly well in both wet and dry condition. The road feedback is excellent throughout and in the wet always gave me lots of confident. I have now got to the point where I have to replace the front at 22k with the rear still at 5mm (but I will replace the full set). Performance is constant throughout the tyre's life and even now the front are down to 3mm I still have plentu of feedback and even in the wet there is no issue whatsoever.
The main issue I have is not how they worn (can't complain having covered 22k from new) but how noisy these tyres are. The noise is unbearable unless you drive on a perfectly smooth surface and it is always been like this, doesn't really matter how old the tyre is. I have tried different tyres pressure without achieving a decent level of comfort.
I will now replace the full set with Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 hoping to achieve a better mileage/gallon (I found the rolling resistance of the continental being quite high) and, most of all, a better comfort.
I repeat, the only reason for me not to go with a new set of Continental (I think the design of the new CSC6 is absolutely beautiful) is merely based on the noise/comfort level.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz ML350 (265/45 R20 W) on a combination of roads for 23,500 spirited miles
I had a new set of SportContact2 tyres fitted to my 2011 ML350 Sport (Diesel) 3 years ago. They've covered 23500 miles and have carried the family from the UK across Europe (1800 miles each way fully laden!) to the south of Spain twice.
The road noise is fine, the grip - well I've never had any problem what so ever - except perhaps on muddy ground but then the AWD kicks in and it's all good.
I'm about to change them, the garage have never seen tyres on a 4WD wear so evenly and to be honest I'm not good at checking pressures.
I wrote to Continental to ask which tyre they recommended now - their response was that as the SportContact2 was designed for the ML that was still their current recommendation.
The only complaint is that these tyres are pretty expensive - almost double that of a mid market tyre that appears to perform well, so while I'm really happy with them, I have a dilemma to resolve as to their price vs. performance.
