Testing my new Continental ExtremeContact DW tires with a little spirited driving in my Dodge Charger R/T.
I did so many hours of searching for a tire that gives good performance and also won’t break the bank; these were my winning result.
Continental calls them a “A premium ultra-high performance summer tire tuned for drivers seeking extreme grip in dry and wet conditions without sacrificing tread life and a comfortable ride.”
There’s not too many in-depth reviews over these tires so I figured I could make one to help out people searching for new performance tires!
Keep in mind:
My car is a 2014 Dodge Charger R/T with a 5.7L v8 with basic bolt ons (About 385hp/405tq) and 3.06 rear gears.
Car weight is around 4250lbs.
Dodge claims the 0-60 is 5.2 although I have been able to get lower than that. (Will post an offical 0-60 video soon)
My tires are 245/45/20 on 8 inch factory aluminum wheels.
Y Speed Rating (186 mph)
Tread Wear: 340 (Pretty damn good for a performance tire)
Traction: AA (Best)
Temperature: A (Best)
Road noise is very minimal
Driving in wet conditions is SO much better than before and normal driving on wet roads result in no issues
Although I was unable to chirp the tires at all in the video I have been able to do it a couple of times but it’s very minor, I guess it has to be the right conditions. These tires have so much grip and I’m still experimenting with how hard I can launch the car and what the limits truly are. This video is not a video to show off my acceleration times, It’s to showcase the tires and how difficult it is to break traction with them.
I’m fully aware I could have driven the car much harder on the corners but I’m not trying to wrap it around a tree, I need my car so I can keep making videos! 🙂
Enjoy the burnout at the end.
