On fast turns I don't have the same confidence in these tires that I had in the original equipment Dunlops.

Tire Pros

- lot of performance for the money - good combo of crisp handling/turn-in and ride comfort/low noise

Tire Cons

- none at this stage of low mileage

Car: 98 BMW 5-Series w/OEM sport suspension and 17" wheels (235/45 tires) Moved to Conti from Yoko YK580 to gain cornering performance and so far I'm quite impressed with this tire. It is not quite as quiet as the Yoko all-seasons but very low noise for a 'performance' tire. Sidewalls are bit 'soft' but that's to be expected to yield the very good ride quality. So far looks very good and a very reasonably priced tire.

Happy with the tires so far. The ride is good and the dry traction is outstanding. A little bit louder than what I was expecting, but acceptable for this type of tire.

Tire Pros

Price, Wear, handling

Tire Cons

Not as sticky , sidewall not stiff enough

Happy so far, like the feel and handling is predictable. Wish they where a little more sticky and harder sidewall. At the track strip they worked OK. I really bought them for Global Time Attack and next month I will see how they fare on the track. At speed on the highway they fell a little soft in the sidewall. When pushed like an exit ramps they hold well and have a predictable fall off.

Tire Pros

Great replacement tire

Tire Cons

None as of yet

I'm impressed with these tires. They were a direct replacement from the factory Dunlop Sportmaxx tire that lasted right at 40k miles. This tire is quiet, handles identically to the Dunlop, and has a 50k warranty. This was my second choice behind the Michelin Super Sport, which was not available at the time of purchase. Even better experience with Discount Tire than the tire itself. I am a repeat customer here.
