Tire Pros

Good grip under all conditions

Tire Cons

Replaced the OEM Ecopia tires with these on my Leaf. They have proven to be an excellent choice, weather a very tough western PA winter, and still providing quiet driving and excellent grip during the spring rainy conditions. I would definitely consider buying these again.

Tire Pros

Nice ride comfort and low noise, should last a while but traded car in so no way to see if the 70,000 mile warranty holds true.

Tire Cons

Did notice flat spotting when cold in the mornings but goes away after a few miles.

Will buy again if possible, the ride was much softer than the oem Bridgestone turanza that it came with and they only lasted about 30k.

I didn't expect these tires were that good. Traction was well beyond expectation road comfort was good. The road noise is average if not, it would be the perfect tire.

The tires are working up to there description. Hydro planning is null better then OEM. There quieter then the OEM. I haven't used them in snow yet and time will tell on how long they'll where. So far they've been a better tire then OEM. About 6,000mi.

Tire Pros

very pleased

Tire Cons

slight initial drop in mpg

Jetta's have a lot of road noise. The new Pure Contact tires are not perfect on noise, but no tire could quiet a Jetta, but much quieter than the Michelin Hydro Edge's I had on the car for 64,000 miles. The Hydro's had good wet, but poor overall traction. They were severally cupping in the rear, therefore very, very noisy toward the end. I admit I did not rotate them as I should. Only twice in 60K. But what a noticeable difference!!!!! Got my best MPG a few tanks ago at near 48 MPG hand calc-ed Tread wear is so far, so good. I'm very happy at this point!!
