AzNMpower32 is on a distinguished road
I am on my second set of ContiCrossContact UHP summer tires. Consistently highly rated in tire tests and I love them for their predictable handling at the limit (a nice progressive breakaway), short braking distances, and great steering feedback. Makes driving fast enjoyable and suits the vehicle very well. Good hydroplaning resistence. The only drawback is that the ride is on the firm side- not a problem here but perhaps in the Northeast or in states with poorly-maintained roads, it can get bothersome. And naturally they dont work when its cold or in the snow.

Also, the road noise is fairly good for a summer tire and last fairly long. I got about 37k mls (60.000km) out of my last set and they were quiet right to the very end.
