MINI mini cooper Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Continental Sport Contact 5 given 90% (205-45-17-W)
Driving on mostly town for 15000 spirited miles
I am on my second set at the front and could not be happier. Grip in both dry and wet is great. Comfort and noise levels are very good too. Wear is perhaps the biggest concern for some but I am more than happy with this trade off as tire's compound seems to harden over time affecting performance in all categories.

Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 spirited miles

Its a MINI & fast cornering is part of the driving & the tyres are the least of my concern. After 10k, the front sides were nearly gone. Had them swapped to rear after 20k. After 30k, was surprised to see long tear appearing along outer sides on some tyres, & the sides now looks amazingly like slick tyre. The middle are rather stubborn to wear off. Even so, these tyres continue to impress with its grip wet or dry... for 7/10 driving. Probably more than its worth for clumsy big sedan. Not the kind of tyres for 10/10 driving, semi slicks is on the menu. Anyway, at 30k its definitely overdue for retirement.
