Continental Extreme Contacts

Did Continental ever release their Extreme Contact DWS All Weather Tires for the ZL1?

All I ever find is the lousy stock Good Years and the good Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

The Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires in 275/40ZR20 and 315/35ZR20 will fit on the ZL1 and give the same ride height front and rear.

I have them in 275/40/20 on all four corners for about 6 months and really love them. That size is very close to stock as you can prove with an online tire meter.

Are you using four 10x20 rims, that would make a difference?

I am interested in these tires as well. Did you keep the stock rims because I don't want to change those.

just got heads up from my dealer. want to change out the stock zl1 tires for all season. He spoke to his tire rack guy and will have the contis put on 275/40/20 front, 315/35/20 in rear for $995 installed. I just don't feel comfortable with the stock tires, I don't race and won't be taking it to the track

If that is out the door, it sounds like a good price.....

I kept the stock tires on the stock wheels and bought another wheel in the same size as the stocks. Either way would work I think.

I paid $980 for my four 275/40/20 all Hunter balanced but not installed as they were sent to me by Tire Rack with no shipping fees. My dealer installed them for free. Just trying to give you information to use.

Do you have any pictures of them on your car? What rims did you use?
