Continental VancoWinter 2 Reviews (newest first) - Page 1

Given 86% while driving a Mercedes Benz Vito (205/65 R16) on a combination of roads for 28,000 spirited miles
Used over a 20 month period through 2 fairly mild winters and 2 typically rubbish British summers with temperatures from +90C to -8C these tyres were superb.
Brilliant stopping in the dry and wet alike. Fantastic handling in deep snow on an unsalted motorway in virtual blizzard, and composed climbing ability up the notorious Detling Hill in the only decent snowfall of last winter in Kent. Handled the subsequent compacted ice on the backroads easily. Shame it all came and went so quickly.
Great wear, 28K, for any tyre, let alone a winter left on permanently through 2 summers is outstanding, especially in a van carrying the weight of this one. Late on the wear became a little uneven, but they were never rotated, and frankly they never faltered even when down to 1.8mm on the front. Day to day handling so sure footed, you wished the engine was better to push them a bit harder. Would buy these tyres again at the drop of a hat. Second time I've had a Conti winter on a Vito, and fantastic both times, the Dunlops in between were poor by comparison. Unfortunately its a company lease vehicle so been put back to summers for now, so its bound to snow for a month come November!

I've ran these on our Vito camper for 3 years through winter and summer and they are excellent. They are excellent in the snow as expected and work well on muddy fields and beaches too.
In summer they are fine as long as you aren't expecting to be throwing it through the corners.
Wear has been excellent despite using all year round, covered 30,000 miles and have rotated front to back, still about 4mm on the front.
Wet braking could be better and you get that squishy rolly poly feeling as you get with winter tyres, quite noisy too but only noticeable at low speeds with the window open, after that wind noise takes over.
