Top Continental ContiMaxContact MC5 Review

Given 89% while driving a Subaru 2008 WRX (235/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,500 spirited miles
Great Tyre. I bought them thinking they wear cheaper then the Bridgestone potenza or dunlop SP01. But the performance is just amazing. I can push my car to the limit and they just keep gripping. Unlike the Toyo TeoPlus tyres i had before which where terrible.

Would highly recommend and buy again!

Given 80% while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTi Mk5 (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 40,000 spirited miles
They were a great tire especially at the price point. My biggest issue with them was how they gave way quickly when pushed rather than being progressive. If you don't plan on pushing your car to the limit then these are an incredible tire for the price.

Given 87% while driving a Honda Civic 1.5T (215/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 41,000 spirited miles
I purchased a Civic 1.5T back in mid 2016 and they came with Continental MC5. First time using Conti, I didn't know what to expect and thought of just using it and till it wears out. What I do know is that the MC5 was launched in the earlier part of this decade and the tire technology would have improved a fair bit since then.I have used several brands during the last 20 years of driving the and I have to say these are tires that perform well in all aspects. Pricing, performance (wet & dry), comfort, name it. I have a tendency to have spirited drives 50% of the time and do lots of high-speed cruising on the freeway. Even with some hard cornering's, it holds it's line well and will give you ample warning before you go over it's limit. Remarkably and after almost 2 years and 65K KM, the tires are about done and about to reach the main wear indicator. This is the highest mileage I've gotten out of a set of tires and still holds reasonably well in the wets albeit at slower speeds. All 4 tires are evenly worn as I rotate them at every 10k intervals. To get the max performance out of them, I inflate them on the harder side (cold tires, 36-38psi) as I find the recommended 32psi just too soft for my liking. The sidewalls are on the softer side, hence the logic of inflating them harder - but not too hard till it performs badly in the wets!!!

In short, i'm happy with the tires and will recommend them to anyone who wants a slightly above mid priced performance all-rounder tire. The MC6 was launched late 2017 and I will be purchasing the evolution of the MC5 in a couple weeks time. Earlier reviews of the MC6 shows promising results and cant wait to try on the new shoes!!!
