    We have about 5K on our Conti A\T's. They drive like a premium all season. Quiet, good ride, great dry\wet grip on tarmac. Only a few times offroad, and performed similar to the Cooper Zeons. Have yet to drive in heavy rain or mud, so that will have to wait.

    My wife has no complaints, which is great, as she gave me an ultimatum to take the Zeons off her Range and replace with an all-season. They have better road manners than the Nokian Rotiiva's on my Suburban Z71, which I considered to have the best onroad manners until the Conti's.

    Been reading good things about the conti’s. Any noticeable drop in MPG’s? Would like to know your thoughts on how they wear as you put some miles on them.
    Cheers

    Running the Conti Terrain Contact as well- love them on and off road- 5k miles as well

    '13 LR4 HSE-
    255/55-19's

    ***** Update

    I was out over the Labor day weekend in the George Washington Nat. For. in Virginia-
    Running Peter's Mill Run near Edinburg- if any knows of it or cares...
    In my book this is a bunny trail- there a some rocky areas- but i never get out of mud ruts setting and only need hill descent in 2 or 3 area's.

    To the point- side wall puncture with a slow leak- fortunately I limped home and changed tire.
    The side walls appear to be the Achille's heal- you really can't air down enough on these to make much of a difference.

    I see a set of Compomotives in my future....................

    Would be interested to hear about any loss in mpg. Currently on Duratracs but they are getting NOISY, so it’s between the Nokian WRG3 and TerrainContact. Would love to hear if anyone has snow experience with the Conti.
