These SVTF Conti\'s lose air!!!

After reading posts about our original tires coming apart, I decided to inspect mine. Imagine my surprise when all 4 tires were 4 to 5 pounds low in less than a month. Guess I'll check them more often, like weekly!! My CL Type S and Ram both do much better.

I noticed the same problem.. I Fill my tires up twice a week. The first time I noticed, my front two were below 20psi and that was only 3 days after buying the car. Conti tires for road and mountain bike are top noch!! For Conti tires on a car
Piss Poor!!!

SVTJoe.........saw the photos on the link. Were those high miles?? Better inspect mine upon rotation! Better yet, replace them.

hmm.. the tires are one of the few things i haven't had a problem with. mine keep air just fine, show excellent tread wear, and still grip like nobodys business. 11mo and 25k miles later nonetheless.

Re: These SVTF Conti\'s lose air!!!

<font color="blue">I had about 17,000 miles on those tires when I noticed the crackes. The front drivers side was the worst and actually leaking air. I thought I just had a nail in the tire. Ford did not work with me at all with the tires and I didn't get anything back from SVT either. I ended up just paying $600 for new tires. It was a pretty big let down for me. From paying about 5k more than most for the car and still having the same problems everyone else has had with the SVT, I feel I got the short end of the stick.
