I have this. I have about 2300 km and the rear is starting to flat spot. Forecasting about 6000 km or about 3000 miles.
Paid $150 plus shipping last fall on EBay. Fast wearing, not dual compound, and not the greatest wet performance but if you are installing yourself, which will offset the fast wearing nature of the tire, they are still a good value but not a fabulous deal at the price IMO. They are what they are, a no frills, basic product, at a cheap price point in a market dominated by higher tech offerings selling at twice the price.
Continental also make a much more pricy and and higher quality sport touring radial, the Road Attack model, that sell at a similar price point to the Michelin Road Pilot. The Conti Motions though show signs of being built to a lower price although I would not say complete they're junk either, IMO they're still a good tire with adequate handling, I just wouldn't expect the longer longevity or slightly higher performance of a more expensive tire. I would not judge Continental or any other manufacturer solely on one model of tire they produce, they makes lots of different tire models at different price points. I have Continental tires on my car and they are the highest rated tire for my vehicle on Tire Rack's website.
