I have had these tyres (two sets) on my sportage since new and manage to get about 25000 miles per set out of them which i consider pretty good. All high centre of gravity vehicles will scrub the tread off the rear tyres quite quickly if you corner hard and tyres do not last as long as they do on cars. The continentals perform well in the snow (softer rubber?) and have done well off road providing you accept that they are not true off road tyres. Off road tyres are awful on tarmac! The tyres are fairly quiet on motorways and I have had no problems in the wet. Just about to fit another two!
They came as factory equipped tyres. Poor performing tyre. Wore very fast, i got around 20000 miles from the set. Dry in the grip and wet ok. Rigid tyre over bumps. Around corners they are loosing grip and squeeking (the 18 inch Nokians for Winter don't). Never buy again.
I have used these tyres on my ML 320 for the past two years - I have managed to get about 25k out of them during this time. Having also used Pirelli’s, the UHP’s are by far a better wearing tyre. At around £160 per tyre, cost and wear is obviously a primary concern.The driving has been mostly around towns is Wales, so quite hilly, but we’ve done some seriously long haul runs too. I can’t praise these tyres enough. As far as performance is concerned, I have no quibbles, wet , dry,snow, they perform very well.
