Re: Continental Cross Contact LX20 or Pirelli Verde Plus

I'm thinking about replacing my GY's with the Contis. All reviews sound great for them and I need a tire that will work in the snow. Can anyone comment on the treadlife for the Contis? If I get 35000+ miles on them I would be ecstatic.

I have the Contis and they work great so far. I've only put about 6000 miles on them and have not been in the snow yet but from the reviews they should be great.

I'm considering both of these as well. Anyone else have any thoughts?

Re: Continental Cross Contact LX20 or Pirelli Verde Plus

I ran Verdes on my MB ML320 and loved them. They never saw snow as I ran dedicated snows, but loved them otherwise. Seemed to wear and handle well. I never ran them down, and some complained about them getting louder as the were worn down.

Re: Continental Cross Contact LX20 or Pirelli Verde Plus

I've had the conti's on 2 other vehicles and overall they were great for the money. Decent wear, quiet and did well enough in all 4 seasons. But.....


I am leaning towards more emphasis on winter performance, as most any all weather tire will do fine in the other 3 seasons. My next set of year rounders will be the Nokian WR G3 SUV. More than adequate in the other 3 seasons and darn near true dedicated winter tire qualities in the season that you notice tire performance the most.....

Re: Continental Cross Contact LX20 or Pirelli Verde Plus

I just got the lx20's a few months ago. So far they are great. Handling is better than latitudes. They are quieter and smoother than the latitudes too. Haven't had snow yet but in the rain or on wet pavement no complaints at all.

Re: Continental Cross Contact LX20 or Pirelli Verde Plus

The 2016's are suppose to come with the Pirelli's. I looked hard at them but ended up buying the Michelin Defender LTX MS. So far very happy. They have improved every ride and handling aspect to a large degree. I haven't had them in ice or snow yet. I ohad MS/2's on my Ram 2500 and they did very well in the ice and snow even with the light rear-end. These are suppose to be improved with additional sipes for the ice. I have about 6000 on these and couldn't be happier. FYI... make sure when you have them mounted and check the alignment, remember to tell them (if you have Quadralift) to put it in alignment mode.

Re: Continental Cross Contact LX20 or Pirelli Verde Plus

Don't know about snow, but the LX20s are excellent in other conditions. Much better traction, less sidewall flex in corners, and hardly feel puddles relative to stock Forteras. Also smooth, quiet, and balance easily.

I was hesitant to buy them since the tread pattern isn't what I typically look for, but they have far exceeded my expectations. Reviews say they do well in snow but obviously will not be as good as a dedicated snow tire.

Update: It snowed today. About 3 inches of wet icy snow. LX20's were great. No wheel spin at all. Even in sport mode from a stop. Latitudes were terrible at that.

I have the Nokian WR G3 SUV on my WJ Overland. They are perfect in the winter. Best traction you can ask for on snow and ice. Super good during breaking on slippery roads! They are also good for spring and fall driving on dry and rain. The problem is if you run them in the summer with temperatures over 65F. You can wear them off very quick.
