15,000 miles and in that time four flat tires due to screw punctures on my OE CONTINENTAL CROSS CONTACT UHP 235/55R19 tires and one side wall tear when brushing up against a curb.. Does anyone else experience this tendency for flats with their Continental tires? On all these occasions the puncture resulted in a very quick deflation, not the type of puncture that allows you to drive home with it. Odd that a car with the Evoque’s off road potential comes with tires as damage prone and as these. Luckily the tire pressure monitor caught the problem quickly. On the bright side great handling tires.
