Not a bad tire but certainly not a good one. the basic problem is that after the first 10.000 km the grip gets rapidly deteriorating. and i am certainly not an aggressive driver

Awesome summer tires! Been driving with them for 2 years now (from brand new) as fronts - a pleasure to drive! Best tires in the wet by far! My BMW used to go head first in sharp turns when wet - not with those on...the rear slides but front holds on ! WILL BUY AGAIN 10/10!

Inherited these tyres with a nearly new car. Fronts are down to 3mm after 10k miles.

I will not replace with with the same when the time comes.

I found this is a good tyre, i have used it for approximately 40000 miles. aspalth roads, the traction is very good, in wet or dry. Change my first front wheels after 2 years. Because some one stab it with a knife or a screwdriver from the side. I think they tend to do a criminal activity. But thankfully the tyre does not explode. I know its pricey and somewhat wear out quite fast, but worth every penny. I feel save traveling with these tyres.

Dreadful tyre, but that's what the car came with. Worn out in 14K miles on front and 26K miles on rear despite many miles of straight line driving with a correctly aligned car. Once down to 3-4mm become unbearably noisy on the wrong road surface. Wet grip when new was excellent, but so are many other tyres out there. Have changed to PS3's and difference is night and day on this car. Half the wear rate for the same mileage on the front. Could not recommend this CSC2 tyre to anyone.

Only 8000 miles of country lane driving in my 2009 mondeo tdci and the front tyres are on the limit.
Very disappointed at how quickly the tyres wore out.
I won't be buying these again.

Driving on mostly motorways for 30,000 spirited miles
Had these on the front of a rear wheel drive car so couldn't get a proper feel for them but they performed well on the front. After 30,000 miles they still had 4mm remaining so well impressed but they had to come off due to uneven wear (cars alignment fault, not the tyres). They also developed cracking in the tread but this is most likely due to age of tyres as they were 7 years old when they came off. Whilst on the car I can't fault them, grip was good in all conditions. Discontinued now in this size but I would definitely use Continental tyres again based purely on the grip.

Driving on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
all in all these were standard on car when purchased new, and i don't under estimate continental as they are a decent tyre manufacturer.

grip: i found with the right tyre pressure for the situation they are a great tyre dry and in the wet, with this it is the same in the corner's.

mileage: decent miles per gallon using the right pressure.

wear:i know they are designed to be a soft sport's tyre, but had these now for a few thousand miles upo and down the motorway along with some spirited driving and i can say the wear on them is minimal.

im going to give the tyre overall 8/10 compared to its rivals.
