NO, It's not just you.wild bill said:i have the 300c with the conti. seals do es anyone beside me hear road noise around 35 to 50 m.p.h. sounds like hard rubber tire sound, iam due for my second rotaion (12000)miles tires seem to be wearing even. just wondered if it was just me.
Joey, Don't worry about it,like I said CONTI'S had ( and still do in my opinion) a reputation for wearing like iron but having an inherent lack of traction. The noise you hear is simply due to the composition rubber " hardening" and becoming basically smooth without becoming bald. Let's just call it an inherent design flaw for those of us who might have expected more from D/C.joey said:Ive got 9000 miles on my self sealer Conti's and I haven't noticed and increased road noise. But over the past 1000 miles I have noticed a significant increase in tire squeal when making turns into driveways, or driving on/off freeway on-ramps. I am not driving any harder, but the squeal has really gotten loud.
JUNK is an undersyatement. As I stated earlier, at best, Conti's were basically designed as a Motercycle tire !! :fing26:mspeasl said:At 21K even with rotations every 6K mine are wore out and uneven at that. These tires are JUNK
Probably under the table to some guy in purchasing. But enough said about the suppliers of the Auto industry.charlie D said:I figure that they know something we don't know,; or were they given an offer they couldn't refuse?? :fing26: uch: :fing26:
It probably will solve your" steering kick" problem. Hard composition rubber tends to bounce causing steerage to wander to the line of least resistance.II kings 9:20 said:Mine are getting replaced in 4 days, I hope it solves the steering kick I get on bumps.
Gang,mspeasl said:I just replaced my tires this past Tuesday with 235/60/18 Michelins. In two words I am "Very Pleased"!!! I got them from Discount Tire and they even pro rated the Continentals out at 100% and that amount was applied toward the new Michelins. That made me even happier.
