I sold the OEM's on CL with more than half the tread left. But now I'm seeing the results and am very happy with making the switch. I've been out in 4-5" snow with out any problem getting around. Of course you have to know how to drive in the stuff also. Saying that after living in Michigan for over 50 years and never have been stuck not even with a '58 VW.

During my drive in a semi-unplowed road early this morning I was doing the speed limit without any noticeable slippage. I've had no serious understeer like in the past set of tires either.
I just had a Continental rep here at the dealer last week and he was saying the PureContact's are the cats meow. lol.
