|jaykirs||Hmmmmm, speaking strickly for me, I like the Conti's on my SVTF, I have no complaints.|

|sidney61199||I thought the same untill I found the pzero nero m/s. Look at the reviews I posted above, they beat most summer only performance tires. They are not cheap but you pay for what you get. Every one is intitled to there opinion about the conti's and I'm not saying anyone is wrong but I think they just plain suck. I hated mine from the moment I bought the car. The next step up from the stock ones are the extreme contact but if the stock ones suck why would I pay the bucks to try out there slightly better tire?|

Actually, the stock Contis are considered very good tires, in every test I've seen of them. I am not having any of the issues other people have - I have around 15,000 miles on mine, and they are not worn out, not noisy, nothing - just about half worn-out, which is what I expect out of them.
I would doubt that a great all-season tire would compare with a great summer-only or winter-only tire. They are going to be a compromise. I will probably never go back to all-season tires again, because I like having the perfect tires for all conditions, and am spoiled by it now.

|erittalf||I didn't like the stock Conti's on my SVT. Oddly enough, they are highly rated and installed on Porsches and other performance cars as stock equipment. When I went to Nopi Nationals a few months ago, treadepot, owned by kauffman tire, sold me a set of Toyo Proxes FZ4's for $77 each. Go to treadepot.com and check them out. I believe they perform exceptionally well in Georgia (no snow or ice) conditions, especially rain. Although, some tires like the Proxes T1 would perform better in water, the price I paid was about half as much.|

Pirelli P-Zero Nero's M/S Rock!!!
They are sticky, quiet, and look cool too!!!! Since I might have to drive in snow where I live, I got the pirellis after 6500 miles on the stock Conti's that came with the SVT focus. I love the new Pirelli's!!
I would recommend them to anyone and check out the ratings for these tires at www.tirerack.com. The complete setup cost $500 shipped to the door for 4 tires. My local Ford dealer mounted and balanced them for $34.95, so for less than $550 I have new feet that I can trust in bad weather and these tires are better than the contisports.
Anyone want to buy 3 Contisports with 6000 miles on them? Sell them to you for $65 a tire or $180 for all 3?

|osunick||I have the contiextremecontact on my Evo and love them. They're probably the best all around tire for either the Evo or SVT, and that's what I'd recommend. They're also some of the cheapest you can get... hard to go wrong with them IMO.|
