Continental Conti Tour Tires

Hello,
I am looking at new tires for my 2016 RGU. A mechanic I know recommended the Continental Conti Tour tires. I haven't heard much about them so I am seeking some actual experiences from those who have used them. Please share your review of the Continental Conti Tour tires. Thanks

I think if you research this forum you'll find that most are running Dunlops or Michelins. Don't recall seeing anyone reviewing any Conti's. I prefer the Dunlops.

2019 Wicked Cherry RGU. And an even bigger smile than before.

Both are very good tires with Dunlap being better on wet pavement, the michelin may wear a little better.
I have Dunlaps now.

Some of us run Avons, living in a rain forest I can verify that their wet performance is exceptional with no lack of grip at any speed - wet or dry; the new Michelin is almost an exact copy of the Avon in tread design. Why innovate when you can imitate?

I am curious about the Conti's, though; I have run their car tires for my spirited wet riding for almost 10 years now and have always been impressed with those tires for our wet conditions (DWS06).

You all make good arguments for new tires. I still seem to see a lot of good reviews for Dunlop. But I am looking at new tires at 12K. Is that the norm? How much more would the Michelin last? And Continentals? Durability? Longevity? Handling?

If you got 12k out of your rear tire, I'd go right back to what's on it. Just My Opinion.
