Great grip on dry roads, acceptable car grips in the wet but with a negative part about wear.
Continental Premium Contact 5 tyres are fitted to my elderly 1998 BMW E36 . I really have no complaints about these tyres, the car previously being fitted with the earlier Contact 2 type. They have excellent handling and most important exceptional wet grip. On my car they seem to last between twenty to twenty-five thousand miles which is acceptable. Would recommend.
I replaced the front Bridgestone Ecopia tyres with the Conti premiumcontact5 tyres. I was drawn to these tyres as they promised more grip and I can confirm that they perform much higher than a premium eco tyre. I have noticed greater wear (although that could be because I am enjoying them more!) and a reduction in fuel economy on motorway drives but in an urban environment I have noticed an increase in fuel economy due to being able to carry greater momentum around corners. The tyres even performed much better than expected in the deep snow in the New Forest in February, being able to wade through 8 inches of fresh snow with ease!
