Hopefully much better wear than the Control Contact tire. Have had those on my Quest for almost 2 years now. Supposed to be a *90,000* tire, but are worn out at 30,000. I'm just hitting the tread bar now. Regular rotations, good inflation, and 100% even wear across the 4 tires. They rode great, nice and quiet, but should have lasted a lot longer. Disappointed.

I found this the most interesting. We pay for these "incentives".

The company also shared updates to dealer incentives and its marketing plans at the meeting.

As with anything you buy. Marketing is part of their cost of doing business. And a "premium" tire company is not going to hold their dealer press launch in Ethiopia...

I'd hope that they were a good tire. Always had good luck with Continental DW and DWS tires.
