Continental CrossContact LX20 Review
Designed for trucks, crossovers and SUVs, the Continental CrossContact LX20 is for those who prioritize long tire life over performance. That’s not to say the tire doesn’t deliver solid traction, but it’s primary focus is on saving you money, both at the pump and by buying tires less often.
- Long life
- Impressive fuel economy
- Decent on-road performance
- Quiet ride
- Treadwear warranty could be longer
- Not a suitable off-road tire
The CrossContact LX20 makes use of what Continental calls its EcoPlus Technology, which is built into the tread’s design to deliver numerous benefits. Chief among those is treadwear, meaning these tires are guaranteed to last 70,000 miles – so expect even more.
In addition, both a quiet ride and a overall fuel economy are top reasons to buy this tire.
Impressively, the LX20 boasts strong wet weather traction (particularly when it comes to braking) and even some snow capability. The tire even features Continental’s Traction Groove Technology which allows to grab and hold snow, which helps the tire grip against snowy surfaces.
It is not, however, a certified winter tire, but an all-season with a Mud + Snow rating.
Despite it’s long-mileage claims, complaints of the tire wearing out early are common and the tire doesn’t come highly recommended by owners.

Continental CrossContact LX20 Warranty
The CrossContact LX20 comes with a 70,000 mile limited treadwear warranty. While impressive, it’s about 10,000 miles short of the warranty from the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus.
However, these Contis come with the brand’s Total Confidence Plan which includes flat tire roadsize assistance that will change your tire and install a spare, or give you a tow for up to 150 miles. If your tire is destroyed due to a road hazard in the first 12 months, Continental will replace it free of charge. And if you’re not happy with your tires after the first 60 days of ownership, you can return them for a refund.
