Yep...noticed this the other day at the NY Auto Show. The 2013 OB Subaru had on display was wearing Continental ProContact GX tires. Wonder if this was in response to steering complaints?when i was at the dealership today, i noticed some of the '13 OB's have new conti procontacts on. tread pattern's different w/ not as deep & wide sipes. tread blocks look to be a more stable. sorry, should'a took a ph pic.
The traction is good. I can't speak to the braking, as I have not put it through an emergency stop. Noise level is acceptable. They are noisier than the Michelin Destiny tires on my other car, but not too bad.So whats everyones opinion on the new Conti ProContact GX tires now coming with Outbacks? My 2014 came with GX's. I can't seem to find out much online. Nothing even on Continental's site. I was used to the Conti Pro's that came on the 2011's.
