I have the Continental Pure Contact on my Volt and they have been great for traction, especially in wet and snow. I have seen about a 20% range loss at first and now down to 10% or so after several thousand miles.

The treadblock on these tires is noticeably thicker than either the Ecopia's or Goodyear FuelMax I considered for that car. Due to this difference, I expect they'll run for significantly more miles than the Goodyears I had previously.

My Leaf was purchased with cheapo Walmart Nexen tires which I'll probably keep for another year. I don't recommend those!

I am on an OEM with 42k and probably have 10% left on the rear with more side worn in front. Overall 4.3 for life of tire.

Planning to replace with Nokian eNTYRE , for $70/ea installed... compare to $125/ea for OEM at Costco !!!

Ride will be combine freeway/street of East Bay CA... not a cold weather or winter .

Thought ?
