I battled with this exact same question when I replaced my tires last November. Let me make this easy for you. The minute your Continentals get a nail in them the WARRANTY IS VOID. Don't believe me then check their website. They will not honor the warranty on a patched tire, regardless. I purchased a set of WeatherReadys and I am very happy with my decision. I owned a set of Goodyear TripleTreds which I thought were the best tires you could buy until I tried the WeatherReadys which are now my favorite tire. I keep mine on all year and they have amazing traction in all weather. Just buy them. You won't regret it.Hi everyone,
Please believe me when I say I've turned the forum inside out looking for tire advice - I know that Search is our friend. But I haven't really been able to find what I'm most curious to know.
Our 2015 EX could use some new 3-season shoes. I have dedicated winter tires and therefore could not care less about how all the options in the marketplace do on snow or ice. I know that "all-weather" tires and the "mountain/snowflake symbol" are the latest big thing in the tire industry. So all the reviews and promotional materials I've seen wax poetic about how these new tires do in the winter, which is about the only characteristic I don't want to hear about.
There are some fairly decent tire sales that have come up in my neck of the woods recently and so I've gotten quotes for both the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady and Continental TrueContact Tour within two dollars of each other. I'm interested in feedback, experiences and/or informed opinions on which of these two tires are likely to give the best performance in terms of ride, low road noise, and longevity over usage between April and October - they will practically never see snow. I also have a quote for Goodyear Assurance Maxlife that is coming in about fifty bucks higher than these other two. I would spring that much more if they are the better choice.
Thanks in advance for the discussion and help.
