Volkswagen Passat CC Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Continental ContiSportContact 5 P given 100% (235-40-18-W)
Driving on mostly motorways for 15000 spirited miles
Just today fitted 2 off Conti Sport 5 to front wheels of Passat CC 2.00 tdi
140 bhp Blue motion (2011 model)
Replacing Conti Sports 3's which had covered 15000 miles in 9 months of mainly fast motorway driving.
Cant say anything yet as no miles covered, Hope they are better than 3's as never 100% sure with grip, and not really happy with wear rate, but on changing found that all 4 tyres were 7 psi under inflated 32psi not 39 psi and tracking was out on front.
Putting the correct PSI in has certainly hardened up ride even on comfort setting, will be interesting when I switch to Sport (shake my fillings loose)

Anyway I will update when a few miles covered

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 given 93% (235-45-17-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
This is the third winter that I am using these tires, I have done around 12.000 km so far and the tread still looks as new. On the dry in everyday driving they feel almost as summer tire. Wet grip is amazing, snow grip also. On highway speeds they shine the most.
Only objection would be increased noise in comparison to my previous Alpin 4, but still rather comfortable.

Writing about the Toyo Snowprox S953 given 91% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 spirited miles
I purchased these tires instead of my previous Dunlop SP on my CC Passat.
I tested them on icy road, on snow and wet and i can tell that i am more than surprised, as these tires are 35% less expensive than previous ones.
Especially i am satisfied in wet corners on higher speed and snow grip is fantastic.
Would recommend to anyone
my tire fitment is 235/45/17

Writing about the Wanli S1063 given 84% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 6000 average miles
Have now done almost 6000 miles on these tyres at the front of my Passat CC.
They replaced Continental Sport Contact 3 tyres that had done about 19k miles - the Wanlis don't grip as well in the wet but I don't drive aggressively and do mostly motorway miles.

I would say there's been hardly any wear and they will easily outlast the previous Contis.......hope I'm right !!

Very happy with them so far and would definately buy again - can't understand the bad reviews - as several people have stated you want top performance tyres then spend the money and don't expect miracles from budget tyres.

Writing about the Avon ZZ5 given 81% (225-35-19-V)
Driving on mostly motorways for 20 average miles
To review the tyre is based on 40k/yr motorway miles mainly. I have these on my Passat CC 170GT DSG. Because of the low profile trying to find a quiet tyre that grips is difficult. The grip in the dry is outstanding, the wet grip has never shaken my confidence, taking into account the stopping distance is greater. The tyres have lasted about 20k miles, they are excellent but repeated visits to the garage for vibration in braking turned out to be uneven tyre wear that Avon are aware of..... For what you pay for them in relation to premium tyres its not to be sniffed at. But I, would not use them again because of the wear on the pattern (the tyre is no longer perfectly round).

Writing about the Wanli S1088 given 0% (235-35-19-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 100 average miles
Have just fitted 2 new S1088 tyres for the front of my Passat CC out of pure necessity. I was a long way from home and they were all that was on offer from the dealer at the time. Had read a lot about budget tyres and was quite worried that I had just purchased 'get me home' tyres . The weather conditions on my way home were far from agreeable with very heavy rain and included many twisty country roads.
The car however handled amazingly well from the start with very little loss of grip and road noise was less than the Accelera tyres fitted previously. I have read poor reports on this tyre before but it may be that it's extra weight rating is better suited to the larger vehicle, (more weight more grip).
Anyhow I have ordered two more for the back.
