Continental ContiCrossContact AT
Any thoughts about the A/T tyre of Continental?
Anybody tried them?
Are they noisy?
I think to buy them as alternative to more expensives BF Goodrich A/T.

RE: Continental ContiCrossContact AT
I have Conti World Contacts too and love them EXCEPT on corrugations, then they are horrific. Nevertheless I'm just about to replace them but would like to upsize from my present 205/70/15 to 215/80/15. Does anyone have experience of this size? Will it clear the wheelarches? I have standard Rhein rims and a 30mm suspension lift.

Unloaded I have only 13mm clearance between the (now worn) front tyres and the mudflap when in a turn. I think the bigger size will reduce that to zero. Have you perhaps removed your mudflaps?

Thanks

if you think the clearance is not enough ... go ahead and remove the mud-flaps .... alternatively consider 215-75-15

RE: Continental ContiCrossContact AT
Yes I did remove mud flaps.

Also initially found at full lock and full suspension compression it could touch slightly. Cured that by redoing wheel alignment and bringing castor forward slightly. Still all in spec and no problems at all since.

Lots of people use an even slightly bigger diameter tyre happily to. I think it's the 235 75 15.
