As you probably surmised, the Continental PureContact is a new model without much feedback.
I was originally searching for the YK280 tire, also out much feedback and because there is no direct comparison to a competitor's tire like the Continental Extreme Contact DWS and the Michelin Sport A/S.
Discount Tire pointed me to the Yokohama YK280 and Continental when I went in looking to buy a a Michelin.
I am glad that I found the report on the Yokohama tire because the test results are pretty lousy, especially in the wet handling and hydroplaning areas which are probably the most important - at least to me!
By contrast, the test results on the Continental PureContact were dramatically better!
Since then, I was researching the Continental and found these test results that tirerack.com
They tested the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus, Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology, Michelin Primacy MXV4 and the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated).
When I click on the link for See Ratings for all models the Yokohama tire is omitted from that list BUT it shows that the Continental and in the V rated category is at the top of the list and excels in wet braking and handling!
In the H rating, the Continental tire was second only to the Michelin Primacy MXV4 - but I haven't read the greatest things from reviewers about this tire...
So for those of you looking for information on the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology or the Yokohama YK 580, I hope this is of great help to you!
As soon as I figure out how to upload an image, I will upload screenshots but if you have a consumers reports subscription, you can go to the link above.
It seems like I have to upload the image to a server first?? Can't pull it off of my computer...
