CONTI CROSS CONTACT LX20

Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season

Overall Rating (8.6)


The CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology is Continental Tire's ecologically friendly Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed to help crossovers, sport utility vehicles and light-duty pickup trucks perform on the highway and in mild off-road conditions. The Cross Contact LX20 is designed to enhance driving pleasure, save fuel and maintain grip when braking on wet surfaces while providing long wear and all-season traction, even in light snow.

The Cross Contact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology uses an all-season tread compound featuring Continental's Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives to improve tread wear, fuel efficiency and traction on slippery roads. The compound is molded into a symmetric tread design with notched outboard shoulders, independent intermediate tread blocks and continuous center ribs to blend on-road steering response and straight-line stability with reduced noise and enhanced ride comfort. Four circumferential grooves enhance wet traction while Continental’s Traction Grooves (featuring ridges in the outboard grooves) promote three-dimensional snow-to-snow traction.

The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide on top of a polyester cord casing to combine strength with ride comfort. All sizes of the CrossContact LX20 come with a flanged lower sidewall to help reduce the possibility of curb damage to expensive wheels.

Comments I've only had these tires for a month, but so far they have performed as advertised. They do extremely well in deep snow, and they are much quieter than the OEM tires that I replaced.

Comments I bought these tires in 2009 after the original tires on my 2007 highlander wore out after about 36,000 miles. These have lasted for just under another 70k miles. I was religious about rotating them in a front to back and cross over pattern for most of their life, but got a little less so recently. I'm about to buy them again without any hesitation.
