Default Continental Premium Contact 6

Anyone had any experience of these?

Nice hard sidewalls?

Quiet?

Used to run Sportcontact, found them too uncomfortable and heavy steering, grip was ok though.

I've always used (and still use) Premium Contact 2 and 5 on my Tourer. Very soft sidewalls, easy to crack if You touch a sidewalk and that's the only side effect of these tyres. My sister runs now Premium Contact 6 on her car and are beautiful as well. I have Bridgestone Turanza on the saloon and can't wait to change them once gone, may be, with Continental although expensive

Premium Contact 6 came top in this Autoexpress test.

We have Premium Contact 5 on the Corsa and it's a nice tyre.

On our CDT, we have Pirelli P7 Cinturato Blue all around and it is really good. The tyre is A/A/69db rated and I think well worth the money.

Avon ZV7 on the Copperleaf 75,
Michelin on the Streetwise
Uniroyal on the MGTF

Outstanding tyres but expensive. What price safety and on you life though?

I currently run Hankook Ventus Evo2 I think, and they are decent enough, but since the specific ones I like are NLA, its time for a change for some long distance but still decent tyres.

Nice stiff sidewall, but not quite as heavy feeling as the old sportcontact3's.
