Grand Touring All-Season tires are for drivers who want a combination of a sophisticated appearance, competent handling and H-speed rated (or higher) durability, along with all-season traction, including in light snow. Grand Touring All-Season tires branded with the M+S symbol are often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on sophisticated coupes and luxurious performance sedans.

O.E. Grand Touring All-Season tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.

Limited sizes of the ProContact RX are available with Continental’s ContiSilent Technology, which involves the manufacturer adhering a layer of sound-absorbing foam to the inner liner of the tire to reduce cabin noise in the vehicle. These sizes are identified on the Specs page and in the search results.

  1. Highly susceptible to sidewall damage resulting in FLAT tire. Do not know how the sidewall got damaged since we do not recall going into a pothole or hitting the curb or any other noticeable impact to the tire. Luckily the flat tire happened while in a safe area.

  2. Buy Pilot Sport 4S instead. I go to the canyons every weekend and maybe some occasional trips to “mexico” but just do not buy this tire. It squeals around every turn, feels really just sluggish, and I can not stand the tires. I am around 5/32 tread after 7k miles and that to me is crazy. Pirelli PZERO lasted 25k miles on my Audi with same driving style. These tires don’t enable you to have any fun they just squeal everywhere, and by everywhere, I really do mean everywhere. Out of my driveway it squeals, going around turns, hard accelerations, anything. These tires make me furious every time I see my car. Gotta buy Michelin PS4S for same price whatever you do.

  3. Typical OEM tire, meant to satisfy the tastes of couch potatoes everywhere! They’re soft & squishy, just like the new softer springs & shocks Tesla placed in this late 2018 Model 3… Yuck! Clearly Tesla fell victim to the same R&D profile that every automaker faces, how not to offend the daily driver and still provide enough road feel for those who seek out a purer driving experience. My advice, buy a better tire once these wear out, or when they die from road punctures. That’s right, these ContiSilence® Technology tires come with builtin silencing pads that line the inner tread surface of the tire. It saves about 2-3db but prevents the tire from being properly serviced on the roadside if it suffers a puncture. If you use the Tesla Sealant Kit, (Green Slime, Fix-A-Flat, etc) the Silencing Pad prevents the sealant from ever reaching the puncture hole as it collects on the sides of the Pad then soaks into the pad like a sponge, preventing the tire from ever being properly patched and balanced after the sealant cures up. You must remove the entire contaminated Silencing Pad from the inside of the tire first, then patch it from the inside as any other tire without that darn Silencing Pad. Only then can the tire be safely repaired, remounted and balanced. BTW, the built-in Silencing Pad also prevents all temporary string and mushroom plugs from working as well. The Pad prevents the string plug from ever reaching the backside of the puncture (by centrifugal force) to seal it up further. Should be renamed ContiNonsense®!
