Have you noticed any overnight flat-spotting (vibration in the car and steering wheel at above 50 mph for the first few miles in the morning)?

Maybe the wider 235/45R17 size I got is more susceptible to that. (Plus I live near a high-speed road so I go faster sooner than "city folk" would : )

Also mine were made in China. Do you know if yours are US made? (It says on the sidewall - in very small letters, but it's there.)

I had the same reaction! I couldn't believe winter tires rode better, handled similarly, and were quieter than new all-seasons.

Yup, it's not a good sign when winter tires perform better on dry roads than all season tires ...

Which winter tires did you get (that handle about the same as the ContiProContact)?

We're up to 32k miles on our 2013 focus. We have the cooper 215/50-17 zeon rs3-a tires. it looks like they'll be down to the wear strips in another 10k miles. this seems reasonable to me - 40k miles to replacement. Is this what you guys have been getting?

almost entirely interstate driving btw 70mph +/-.

I just hit 40k on mine and should get another 5 at least. I think that is pretty good for a tire that isn't very expensive. Got to rotate each oil change (for me that is 7-8k) and check alignment annually. My driving is 75% highway.

Just passed 45K...have a little more left..will plan on tires in next few months. Found these online for ~$415 delivered to the installer and figure another $60 for installation. I am hoping my Ford dealer will match it so I can just do them when I get my oil changed next time. Really like these tires!
