Continental tires

Just wanted to know if anybody has these, and if so can you post comments on grip, ride quality, tire life, etc.. The setup that I am looking for is 215/55/16 on stock rims. I drive mostly highway (80%), so I'm looking for something that provides better grip and has good tread life.

I've been reading some reviews on Tirerack, and these seem to come highly recommended.

Here's a link to the tires:

They seem like a great buy compared to the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S.

My friend has them on his RSX-S and he likes them. He said they're not as grippy as Kuhmo Ecsta 712's but he wanted decent tires for snow. He said they're still a hell of a lot better than the stock Michelins.

I think they're German too. They come stock on some German cars. Maybe Porsche? German engineering...must be good.
