The Conti's aren't very good if you want to do anything other than commute down the freeway during warmer months. They will suit probably 95% of Focus owners just fine and last long enough to make those owners happy enough.

For anyone who drives a bit more spiritedly they are pretty terrible and during the winter they are even worse. But then again anyone who does drive their car in any other way than just a typically commuter, usually puts dedicated summer tires on their cars with winter tires if needed. I plan on swapping my tires pretty soon, I just couldn't justify scraping brand new tires no matter how much I didn't like them.
