Anybody got PERSONAL EXPERIENCE with these tires? I'm thinking about getting a set for street/ dirt road/ rallyx use. I've been using Kumho MXes for the street and autox, and Azenises for autox. The Conti's tread pattern looks like it'd be pretty good in the dirt, and the treadwear is pretty high. Just looking for some positives/ negatives before I spend the money.

Thanks.

I was going to buy a set, but TireRack has them on special order or back order. I'd like to get a set within the next two weeks, but I need to find another source if they don't have them.

Thumbs up

Check TireRack reviews. I think there is even 1 from a WRX owner. If you can wait until this fall (like me) you'll probably have good comparisons between it and the HTR+ which seems to be the A/S of choice unless your willing to pay twice as much for the Pilot A/S, which is the best by anyones measure so far.

Does anybody has any comparison between Dunlop Sp5000?
Or any all-season tire?

Well, I should have a set on Wednesday. Discount Tire in Raleigh, NC will be installing them. I guess I'll be the guinea pig, and I'll be sure to report on them.

later.
