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 TX 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. Factory OEM tires with 23K miles. Rotated and balanced every 10K. Just failed state inspection because two tires in the rear have a large bubble on inner wall of each tire. Dealer says caused by impact on curb or object. If it was one tire I would say ok you got me but two tires located on the rear of the vehicle. Not likely. Called Continental for warranty. I would have to go to tire dealer pay for them to dismount my tire and test to see if factory defect. If it’s not . No coverage. If it is factory defect I get two new tires but am stuck with two other tires that have less than half the tread life left. A check of the Audi forums show most people with this car switch over to Michelin Premier A/S. I think I’ll just take the loss and go with Michelin.

  2. These were the original tires that came with the car. They’re very prone to bubbles, and very prone to blowouts. I’ve had my car for a little over a year, primarily driving to and from work, and I’ve already had to replace all four tires. When tire number five blew out, we finally switched to another brand. They’ll be fine spares to get me to a shop when a better tire needs replacing, but that’s all they’re going to be used for from now on.

  3. These cont pro contact tx came factory installed they ride good handle descent but are very soft had to replace 2 tires one from 2 mph curb and other from co2 canister which penetrated entirely through tire. Bought 2 more tires to replace but would suggest Michelin AS3 tires instead as they seem much better so far for corners and wet traction.
