Anybody familiar with this tire ContiWinterContact TS810?

I'm considering a 265\18 tire and these are a good deal. Also, the tread pattern looks more all season then rugged winter... thoughts?

It's a performance winter tire, so the speed rating will be higher than a traditional winter tire. Less tread wiggle too, so they are better for places with less snow and/or well cared for roads. Great choice if that is your situation.

Agreed. A good winter tire, but with more emphasis on dry road handling compared to other winter tires.

Hi Gary - I'm assuming it will be better than an all-season however. Correct?

I've had Blizzaks which handle great in the snow but super mushy in the dry. So I went with some all seasons last year, which handled ok in the dry but terrible in the snow.

My "snow" driving is primarily suberbs with salted and plowed roads. I dont drive in deep snow on country roads or anything

The other tire I'm considering is the Dunlop M3. I see there is the M3D however you dont offer it in the size I'm looking for 245/40/18 and 265/40/18.

Opinions and thoughts? Thank you.

Yes, quite a bit better than any all season tire. Given the conditions that you described, this tire would seem to be an excellent choice.
