Continental TrueContact Tour Tire Reviews In 2021

Continental TrueContact Tour review

Continental Tire the Americas, located in Fort Mill, South Carolina, produces and sells a full line of premium passenger, light truck, and commercial tires for both original equipment and replacement markets. 

Its ultra-high-performance tires have award-winning technology that prioritizes safety while also reducing costs.

The TrueContact Tour Features

The Continental TrueContact tire with long tread life is praised for its excellent fuel efficiency. In this Continental TrueContact Tour review, we will show some features of this tire.

Continental used a combination of functional polymers and +saline additives to achieve this outstanding performance. Polymers help maintain extended tread life and fuel economy, while + saline additives aid in braking and wet traction. 

It molded the compound into a symmetric design to allow for cross patterns and easy rotation in the front and back. It boasts a one-of-a-kind and innovative design that decreases the danger of hydro-planning.

There are tread blocks and lateral notches on it, resulting in more biting edges. On slick conditions such as snow, these characteristics can assist in enhanced traction.

This technology is a layer beneath the tread that  minimizes vibration. Vibration is reduced, resulting in less noise and more comfort. 

The technique, according to Continental, may drastically cut down the amount of wave that enters the cabinet. The tire’s inside is like that of others in its class, with a single-ply polyester shell for handling performance.

Two nylon-bound steel belts are also included for improved speed and durability.

The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Continental TrueContact Tour

Here is a summary of our Continental TrueContact Tour review.

Pros
  • Tread life is quite lengthy, and the tread is extremely durable
  • Continental offers an extended treadwear guarantee
  • It offers decent comfort on rough roads
  • At highway speeds, it’s eerily silent
  • On wet conditions, it has excellent handling and braking
Cons
  • The handling and braking on ice are unreliable

Continental TrueContact Tour Test Drive

We highly recommend the TrueContact because it is more economical than other great tires, glides silently and smoothly on the road, and lasts a long period.

Dry Traction

In terms of dry traction, the Continental TrueContact Tour tire is among the top all-season touring tires. The distances of braking are low enough, and the stability of speed is excellent, resulting in a safe and comfortable driving experience. 

Behind the wheel, the tire feels snappy and gives a strong corner grip. The tires have a unique formula that improves and extends their lifespan.

Wet Traction

In wet weather, the Continental TrueContact tires show their best. It performs admirably in turns and makes drivers become more confident on the roads.

Snow Traction

The distance of braking is short, and the traction levels are sufficient for a secure and comfortable drive on snow-covered roads, which is really impressive.

The steering is unsurprising, the distance of braking is short, and the traction levels are sufficient for safe driving in light snow. However, to drive safely in deep snow and ice traction, you will need a specific winter tire instead of this four-season tire.

Comfort And Noise

It has an additional vibration and stress-absorbed rubber layer as you drive, allowing you to enjoy a peaceful ride even at any level of speed.

Overall, in our Continental TrueContact Tour review, we cannot deny that each premium tire has its own set of drawbacks. However, we would say Continental TrueContact Tour is worth your consideration for its comfort, fuel economy, and reasonable price. 

It’s one of the few tires that doesn’t have a noticeable flaw, except the handling and braking on ice are unreliable.

    This is the second set of tires I have installed on my Sienna. These Continental TrueContact Tours replaced the Michelins. These tires are perfect for touring in our region. They are a top-tier touring tire, except for the snow performance. They are my favorite all-season tire in the snow. Park City is a hilly neighborhood and we use snow tires from December to February. We still experience snowstorms outside of when the snow tires are on. These tires are a far better choice than the Michelins that we used before.

    These tires were a welcome addition to my 2016 Lexus NX 200t after I drove on them for two winters with 19K miles. These tires have been great on snow, rain, as well as dry roads. They are by far the best I’ve ever bought. They are a great all-season tire for snow and rain.

    My 2014 Toyota Sienna has covered just over 14,000 miles with a set Continental True Contact Eco-Plus tires. The mileage has increased from 22.5 to 24.5 m.p.g. The mileage has improved from 22.5 m.p.g. to 24.5. Overall, it took some time for the tires “break in” and to get better mileage. However, I was able to achieve a maximum of 27.0 MPG. At 70 m.p.h. To/from Orlando in January, but it was 70 degrees cooler so the A/C wasn’t used. (Normally, this lowers the mileage by 1.5 m.p.g.). I set the tire pressure to 38 p.s.i. For the fronts, 37 p.s.i. For the rears. The higher pressure tires do not seem to affect the ride. Continental recommended that I rotate the tires every 6,000-8,000 miles. I now rotate them every 5,000 miles, when I change the oil and filter. The tread depth now is 8/32nds”, compared to 11/32nds when they were new. The tires would have 40,000 miles if the tread depth is lowered to 2/32nds. Tires tend to have a longer tread life than the original tread. We’ll be watching how it turns out. My old Continental tires had a lower hydroplaning resistance. Overall, I’m happy with these tires. They are a step up from my previous set of Continental Tires. Continental may offer a more recent version of the True Contact tires when they are time to replace them.

    I have a replacement set that I bought a few months ago. The previous set I owned for five years was very durable and good at traction. The new set seems to not have the same level of traction. We are not able to tell the difference yet, but traction is vital, especially in Phoenix, where roads can get very hot and roads are very slippery due to infrequent rain.

    These tires were purchased for Chicago Winters. They did a decent job in snow and icy conditions, if you are able to drive it. They are excellent in all other conditions. Tread wear so far, good. Good traction, performance, comfort, and fuel economy are all good. Although I rarely give 5 stars to anything, I would give these tires 4.5 stars if it was worth the money they cost.
