Questions and Answers for the Continental ContiMaxContact MC6

2019-05-02 - Hi Tyrereview, My car is ford focus sport runs on a weird sized tyre (215/50/R17). I am currently looking for a set of good handling tyres with a level of comfort. Both continental MaxContact 6 and PremiumContact 6 have high review rating on the website, just wondering which one is better? Thanks.

The MacContact 6 is American market and PremiumContact 6 is Europe, so they do not overlap!

2019-10-10 - Hi, Currently I'm running on 225 45R17 on my BMW, it's time for me to change my tires. Having some confusion on choosing tires. So far I have 3 options, MC6, Goodyear efficientgrip performance or Michelin ps3. Need your comments. Can I upgrade my tires to 235 45 R17? I'm having stock rims.

Unfortunately I can't comment on tyre size changes as there are too many variables. Also, we don't get the MaxContact in Europe, but of the three options I would likely pick the Goodyear due to high comfort, low wear and good grip.

Top Continental ContiMaxContact MC6 Review

Given 69% while driving a Mercedes Benz E Class W124 E500 (215/50 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 1,000 spirited miles
A set of F/R 215-50+225-50 (17") (Maley made) on Mercedes Benz W124 E500 - Jan'18
Review at range 1,6xx KM. in Thailand, Mostly on motorway (80%) and B road (20%)
Dry grip are great, a bit better from MC5, and super stable on upper to high speed drive, confident on control. worm up supper quick, break on dry are super, real life compare with another e500, fresh new tyre both, MC6 is abt 1.5 s. quicker and 21-22 m. shorter to stop compare with the Thai's made - Primacy 3-ST on the same size.
A bit down breaking in wet (rainstorm wet, from 110 Kph to 40) its better to keep more distance as I felt the tyre are skid on the water time to time, and....a massive down on noice, this new one is, still, so loud on higher speed, a bit quieter if stay below speed limit. and the wear, I did 23,xxx km. in 17 months on last set of MC5, and its was totally wreck at that point, so far, it seem like long lasting wasn't the major improvement on the MC6.

SUM : One of the best tyre on dry, high speed and performance user, compare to the price, this is still be no.1 as of early 2018. hopefully won't see defect on sidewall or structure damage like other model from my pass on this model, So far, So good.

Given 86% while driving a Mitsubishi AirTrek Turbo (4G63T AWD) (225/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Initially I was quite skeptical to get this MC6 due to the review of the predecessor. But after some KMs driving on it, it turn out quite satisfy for the performance and for the price. On normal urban road, no issue, soaked up all the uneven surface. Expressway speed, stable, quiet. Some weekend drive on country road, push slight harder at corner, surprisingly track well and without hesitation. No tyre squeal.

Given 89% while driving a Mitsubishi Xpander Sport 1.5L (225/50 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 100 average miles
after comparing several options Continental MC6, Continental UC6, Hankook S1 Noble2 and Hankook ventus prime3. finally my choice fell on Continental MC6.
the ability of tires on dry and wet roads is impressive.
using this tires feels comfortable and low noisy during driving.
Previously, i used Hankook ventus v2 concept2, it felt hard after 17,000KM, although it was still quite good on dry and wet roads and was still low noise. good job hankook and excellent continental 👍👍👍
