LEXUS ES 350.  Owned these tires for 12K miles for just over 1 year working with multiple Continental tire dealers and mechanics chasing down a vibration.  Finally reached out directly to Continental.  Continental customer service recommended I confirm it's a flat spot issue by putting car on stands overnight.  Solved the problem for that morning.  To have vibration every morning for the first 10 miles just got old and now I know it is something you have to accept. Especially hard to accept when I bought Lexus for a smooth ride.  Kylie and Jose at customer service confirmed this is a characteristic for this type of tire.  Skip this tire as I had it on all 4 tires.  I live in Virginia with full four seasons and it happened in all weather.  Otherwise once the vibration went away the tires worked well.    Was hoping for a much better experience with my first set of Continentals but didn't pan out and cost me more than just the price of the tires.  I would not recommend this tire in a 225/45 R18 Purecontact LS.

The tires provide good traction in the wet and in the dry. It handles well and my car is quiet. I live in a warm place so that I can't comment its traction on snow.
What is bad?
Treadwear
It seems to me that the tire is not durable. It's not puncture resistant. And two of four tires have already had punctures.

I use these tires for a full year already, just over 13,000 miles. These are the best tires I have driven in the wet. But in the dry they're super too. They provide the quiet ride and good handling.

I had these tires installed on a 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited about 9,000 miles ago. I'm a conservative driver and in general very satisfied with them. The tires are excellent in terms of quick braking! They are much quiter than my previous tires.
