Whoops, I need to get better at being descriptive!
My Contis had no problem ripping me around curves, taking me across light snow, gripping in the rain, and dealing with a 19-20 year old with a need for speed.
What they sucked at was wearing. They were below 50% at only 19k. My Kumhos still have waaaaay more than 50% and they're nearing the same mileage. Mind you, my alignment is worse now than it was when I had the Contis.
Despite that, the Kumhos suck whenever there's more than a drop of water on the road. I've had a few near misses because the Kumhos failed where the Contis would've shined. And while I used to say they were better, they really aren't better than the Contis in the snow.
During the recent "snowpocalypse" event, I gave the Kumhos a solid "F". I got stuck in snow that was literally two inches deep, stuff the Contis dealt with easily. Then on ice, the Kumhos tried to throw the arse end around, another thing the Contis never did.
That said, the Contis are too expensive and wear too much for me to even consider buying them ever again.
Next time, I'm going for Primewell (I have good experience with that brand), Yokohama, Firestone, something other than Kumho or Continental.
