Top Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV Review

Given 59% while driving a Hyundai Tucson (245/45 R19) on a combination of roads for 13,000 easy going miles
Standard fitting on Hyundai Tucson SE Premium. Lasted less than 13000 miles on front axle. Is it my driving? I don't think so. Previous car was Hyundai IX35 SE Premium (basically the same car), changed front tyres on that one at 31000 miles. Previous car to that was a Discovery TD5, tyres lasted 40000 miles between changes so its not my driving! Ok for feedback and grip and noise levels but will not be buying as replacements

Given 57% while driving a Volkswagen Tiguan (235/55 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 116,000 easy going miles
We bought a brand new VW Tiguan (pre-registered late 2017) which came fitted with these Continental ContiSport v tyres. Within less than 3 years of very conservative and careful driving (my wife and I are both retired NHS staff), we noticed significant wear on the front two tyres. The car had clocked up just 11,600 miles from new. Our local garage confirmed significant wear, one of the tyres verging on being dangerous. We had both tyres replaced immediately. On contacting Continental to comment, they wanted me to return to the garage, fill-in a form and have the Garage do so too. They then wanted me to ask the garage to keep the tyres for their collection. There offer was to report back once they'd had chance to actually see the two failed tyres themselves. Continental clearly wouldn't take my word, our Garage's word or want to contact our VW Dealership. We'd always previously considered Continental to be a decent brand - but never, never again.

Given 90% while driving a Lexus RX270 (235/60 R18 V) on mostly town for 1,000 average miles
Amazing tyres. put them on my Lexus RX and well out do the original bridgestones the car came with when I bought it brand new. Can hardly hear any road noise unless driving on rough or unsealed concrete road and even then very quiet. Very comfortable.

Given 93% while driving a Hyundai Santa Fe (235/55 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Fitted the tyres to our Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander when the original Hankook tyres needed replacing. This will be the third time I have fitted Continentals when available and they don't disappoint. Steering, braking, feel and comfort are all superior to the others I have owned, and I couldn't see myself buying any other brand regardless of price.

Given 87% while driving a Volvo XC60 D5 AWD Auto (235/60 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
I am very pleased with these tyres. They have lasted for 3 summers, and have had everything thrown at them, long distance motorway trips, towing trailers and caravans, country roads and the commute. The only fault came from a nail that punctured a tyre, but even that managed to hold together with the sealant to get us and the caravan 400 miles to our home. That tyre was immediately replaced with another Conti, despite there being a cheaper option on the shelf at the fitters. I've never had any issues with grip, handling, noise or economy with these tyres, and an estimated 30k miles shows that they can last, despite being fitted to a fairly heavy car. They are now at 3mm, so not suitable for another summer of use, but a new set is going on once the winter tyres come off.

Given 44% while driving a Nissan Qashqai (225/45 R19 R) on mostly country roads for 0 average miles
Bought a Brand New Nissan Qashqai 2018 had these tyres on them. At 15000km Service Tyres on front needed to be swapped for the rear ones as tread was worn off , I had done 15500 km at this time & will need New Tyres well before 20000 km. Very disappointed & won't be buying these or any Continental Tyres ever again.
Dealership has gone back to Nissan NZ and this is what Tim Greene has come back with:
"The Conti sport model fitted to the Qashqai is a ver high-performance focused tyre.

Unfortunately, increasing grip levels and friction coefficients will also result in an increase in tyre wear rate.
This is the case throughout the automotive tyre industry and is more prevalent with the larger rims and lower profile tyres fitted to the higher specification models.

It is possible to fit "lower performance" tyres to achieve a longer wearing life, as long as the client is made aware that moving away from the manufacturers specifications is likely to reduce the vehicles over-all grip level and have a negative effect on handling and braking characteristics."

So feel pretty dis-appointed that its looking like I will get 20,000 km at the most out of these tyres.
You need to advertise that these lower profile tyres get an increase in tyre wear & that you only get this amount of km out of them. That's if what I received from the Dealership is accurate?.
Please advise me, looking forward to your reply.
