UTQG (treadwear): 600 A B

The Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology is a good mid pack tire in the standard touring all season tire segment. It's been designed to fit a wide number of tire sizes from 15" up 18" and can typically be fitted to most passenger vehicles. This tire will give you decent traction (not great traction) in pretty much all driving situations. So you won't be setting any race course records using them, but it's definitely a solid choice on your family hauler. These tires offer Continental's EcoPlus Technology, which will improve your fuel economy -no hard numbers, of course- but drivers generally seem pleased with the results.

So the real world reviews on these tires are kind of mixed I guess. In terms of price, longevity and improve fuel economy, they do pretty well. However, when we focus on traction and performance under adverse weather conditions, there are some definite limitations to these tires. It's hard to get everything you want, at a relatively low price. That being said, you'll likely see about 60,000 miles out of a set, which is par for the course considering their treadwear rating.
