Questions and Answers for the Continental AllSeasonContact

2018-10-19 - I have a Volvo 850 with 205/50/R16 wheels. Is it possible and legal to fit Continental All season 205/55/R16 tires to my vehicle. Thanks for your help

You would need to check to see if there was a safe amount of clearance as the new tires are bigger, you would also need to factor in your speedo would now be out, and you would need to notify your insurance company of the new tire size.

2018-11-15 - Do you know the treadwear of this tire? I wonder how much mileage this tire has.

The treadwear will vary from size to size so you would have to check directly with Continental, however if you look at this years Auto Bild All Season Tire Test it covers wear testing.

2019-01-01 - I am looking into tires for a small car Toyota Aygo these continentals seem to come out good on reviews. Tire size 155 65 r14 needed. As there are issues with mixing summer and (winter) on front wheel drive cars (good video seen) does the same apply for all season tires. I am planning on all 4 tires being changed at he same time. Generally looking at the tread all these look directional. So what happen with the spare tire ? as this could be fitted only on one side Or do i just keep my summer continetal tire as the spare that is more flexible in term of right /left location. I would appreciate any advice

As the Continental All Season Contact has a similar snow and ice performance to a full winter tire, I would not recommend mixing all season and summer tires as you could experience similar issues to the winter/summer setup!

2019-05-13 - Will the Honda HRV model year 2016 LX fit to use this tire? Currently the original tire is 215 55 R16. Planning for either 16" or 17" tire and require some advise

As long as you can find the AllSeasonContact in the correct size and load rating for your vehicle, there's no reason you shouldn't use the tire.

Top 3 Continental AllSeasonContact Reviews

Given 90% while driving a Skoda Octavia Scout (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 190 spirited miles
Initially tested on very wet and slushy country roads and additionally on 5-10 cm compacted snow in the mountains. Tires appeared to perform as well in these conditions as my full winter tires (Nokian WR D4). Dry braking performance in the 0-8 degree range seems very good but fast cornering and general dry handling was lacking a little to my summer Pirelli's when the temperatures were nearer 8 degrees. Still sufficient dry handling for all but the most spirited of drives I would say. Early impressions are good, more winter and dry testing needed but the wet performance has been exemplary. No wear yet so too early to give a wear rating.

Given 97% while driving a Volkswagen Golf (195/65 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
After driving "crossclimate" and "4seasonG" can confirm that this tire combines characteristics of Michelina and Goodyear.
In my car before the all year tires I had a continental summer and a special winter set.
It is not true that it is actually winter.
quite different in the summer than winter tires eg TS-830.
The feel of the steering wheel is better than that of Michelin and Goodyear.
The tire has a great traction on the snow and lateral stance as opposed to the trembling crossclimate.
Goodyear is more comfortable and quiet, the rest is about the same.
Continental, however, keeps the dry road better than goodyear.

Given 74% while driving a Hyundai elantra (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 25,000 spirited miles
Having previously driven on 2 sets of Michelin Crossclimates (not the newer Plus model), subjectively there is a noticeable improvement in all areas. In the initial miles, dry handling was superb compared to the Michelines, tires behaved better generally in the wet and being the XL model with reinforced sidewalls, there was less perceived flex while cornering. I would say that the road noise is maybe a bit more pronounced compared to the Crossclimate. I haven't been able to test the tires in the snow as there is rarely any in my area, but I feel they wouldn't be any less competent compared to the previous model which behaved fine on slush and compacted snow. Having driven 40 000 kilometers the tires are nearing the end of their life and maybe have 5000 more kilometers in them. There is really no complaints about the longevity, especially considering the very high summer temperatures in my country and my driving style. Michelines might have lasted a bit longer, but generally after 2 years it seemed as if their compound became much harder and started behaving like a much older tire. With all of this being said I believe that in the last 10 000 km Continentals have been progressively loosing grip in the dry and wet. Asphalt in my area is less than ideal and feels like polished glass sometimes, but there is a noticeable change in tire behavior nonetheless. Continentals loose grip more predictably, whereas the Michelines would cut traction abruptly and often without any warnings. One thing I noticed (mind you with MY car) is that the Continentals respond favorably to pressures slightly higher than manufacturer recommended (about 0,3 bar more). That made a car a little more agile and predictable, albeit with a slight comfort disadvantage. Generally I believe that most drivers will be perfectly happy with these tires, as they provide a good compromise in all aspects in weather situations that don't dip into the extremes. My car is not a good driving platform as it flexes and massively understeers in the corners, so the tires could behave even better on a car with a better and firmer suspension. I feel I got my moneys worth out of them and I recommend them, but as I like to experiment I will probably try a different tire next time.

Fitted these Conti's on my dad's car. This is a review on his behalf. The Continental AllSeasonContact in the size 205/55R16 94V XL are highly recommended. Fitted them a year ago, and they are still going strong. The grip in all conditions is phenomenal, the comfort equal to summer tires. Snow is no problem, it's like a winter tire. It is even capable of handling sporty! Did a 180 mile trip in the summer no problem. 9/10 would recommend.

Given 79% while driving a Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer (225/45 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 12,000 average miles
I bought these tires in December 2019. They've been fitted to the car for roughly 10,000 miles now of mixed driving. The main reason I bought these tires is the advantage that they offer over a traditional summer tire in the snow and cold conditions. I have been out for the first real test of them in the snow this morning, and I'm happy to say that they've impressed me! It goes without saying that it is an "All Season" tire so it's always going to be slightly compromised vs a full "Winter" tire in the snow, but it performed a huge amount better than a "Summer" tire would. I was able to tackle some snow covered country roads with both fair inclines and declines without the car feeling like it was struggling to grip. When coming to a stop on an incline and setting off again, there are a few seconds of wheel slip whilst the tire finds some grip, however they're fitted to a fairly heavy front wheel drive estate car so that's understandable, a little bit of wheel slip and traction control kicked in on the steepest part of the climb, but they all worked together to keep/get the car moving, but once on the move it's a really confident feeling tire. A definite note is that it drives noticeably better on fresh vs compacted snow so I have definitely aimed to keep the wheels in fresh snow where possible. Braking and steering performance were massively impressive too, enabling a confident/safe feeling drive especially down steep, twisting descents, which for me is main reason for purchasing the tire, as I've got snow chains for if I get really stuck going uphill. Outside of the snow the rest of the year, I've not noticed any difference to a standard "Summer" tire. Both in the dry and rain I wouldn't have been able to judge any difference between these tires and the Michelin Summers that were on the car before, but perhaps if you've got something like a sports car where feedback is important, you may want a full "Summer" tire in summer. I've had some fun making good confident feeling progress down twisting roads in the summer with these tires. They've now done roughly 12,000 miles since they were fitted and they're at about 5-6 mm which is excellent considering that the tires spend most of their life on NSL "rural" roads (pretty rough road surfaces, gravel farm tracks etc) etc. I'd say in normal driving conditions expecting 25,000 - 30,000 miles from them (changing at 3mm left) In my opinion, they're definitely worth it!

Awesome 4 season tires, manufactures have improved the quality of these kind of tires and they are almost similar to a winter tire. I am impressed about grip on all scenarios, specially on wet roads like the ones that we have in luxembourg, nice comfort, almost no noise if you compare them with my old uniroyal winter tires...

Given 92% while driving a Renault Megane Coupe 2.0 dci 160hp (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 2,000 average miles
Have had all season tires on my daily driver for a while now and totally sold on the concept. The extra grip you get in heavy rain, snow and ice is significant. Seeing as for most of the year the temperatures in the UK are generally low I can't really understand why people keep running around on summer tires that are patently next to useless come winter time. Bought these Continentals to replace a set of Bridgestone Weather Controls. The Bridgestones were good but wore out rather quickly I felt (at about 17,000 miles) and overall the Continentals are much superior for around the same price. Have been totally happy with dry cornering and braking but the performance and handling in wet weather is supreme. I drive 60 odd miles per day on the motorway and with recent heavy rains have felt totally secure, these tires shift water like you wouldn't believe and track dead straight even in deep standing water. Had some heavy snow on the hills in my area recently and whilst others were struggling to get up the slopes I had no issues whatsoever. In fact it was hard to tell that I was driving on snow at all. The sidewalls are quite inflexible but the ride is far from harsh and I reckon a bit of toughness is a good thing with the amount of potholes around these days. If all that wasn't good enough I am getting at least 4 more mpg than the Bridgestones and on the motorway they are very quiet and smooth indeed. Too early to give a good appreciation of wear but they seem to be holding up well. I highly recommend these tires, for less than 90 quid a corner they are a bargain. Why pay 20 quid less each tire for something mediocre when these are just so good?

Given 93% while driving a Volkswagen golf plus 1.9tdi se (195/65 R15 V) on mostly country roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Sunday morning 07:00 in the rain (my favorite) the tires preformed almost as good as winter tires... a lot of grip even in beyond "the limit" situations, that's why I wanted to try them... In the dry they let go when pushed but still keep the car where you want to go. Also, silica tire squeal is very high sound frequency, almost inaudible... this is normal and it allows you to focus on cornering... Tire has somewhat stiff sidewall so it has less "float" feel than "comfort" competitors but without being too harsh. If you change and balance the tires yourself an all season tire simplifies your work even if they last a few thousand km less than dedicated summer tires... 9/10 If they make it last longer than what the tests show it will be 10/10... We'll see.

Genuinely all season tires. I've had them for 2 summers and 1 winter, 13k miles and 6mm tread remaining. I've had snow, deep standing water, muddy tracks, 32 degree heat on motorways, the lot. Never lost grip, or had any nanny-tech intervening. Highly recommended for an Outback.

I have a Toyota Auris and i live in Greece. After 15000km of driving i am pleased with these tires on snow and rain during winter months but when summer comes the tires are sliking too much both on braking and handling. It is like a winter tire and behaves better on winter. On summer you must be careful.

Given 70% while driving a Audi A3 Sportback (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
I live in coastal Montenegro, which means the winters are mild with loads of rain; the issue is if you drive a little bit north, you encounter snow and ice road conditions. That is why I went for the allseason type of the tire, because my previous experiences with 'proper' winter tires has not been great - they would wear down quickly in the mild weather.
Continental AllSeason contact performs well in the wet conditions, which was very important for me (we have epic rain in Montenegro). I also tested it on several occasions while driving though compacted snow in the mountains, it gripped surprisingly well; on several occasions on the ice patches it tended to 'dance' a bit, but no major issues.
The only real drawback is the warm weather performance - since February the weather was sunny and warm, and the tire does not perform as advertised - it becomes a bit slow and 'mushy' regarding the feedback. The wear is also not great, as it started to have visible damage to the surface. Also worth noting, the tire picks up little stones everywhere you go - I suspect this was due to the warm weather and the 'stickiness' of the compound; I can only imagine what would happen in the summer temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius.
Just lately I have reverted to my summer tires (Dunlop Maxx Sport), and the difference is incredible.
This is not all season tire. I assume you could use them all season long if you live in mild to cold weather, but then why not buying proper winter tire?
