Initial Review, 1,000 Miles on Tires
February 22, 2012

Replaced OEM Continental SportContact 2 tires, which had gone completely bald. New DW is an excellent performing tire for my particular car. I'm looking for a quiet ride and decent treadlife out of a Max Performance Summer tire (because I have 20" wheels & summer tires, and a second set of 18" winter wheels and tires for my car). The tire is a runner up to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Ordinarily, I would have purchased the Michelin, except I couldn't justify the significant price premium vis-a-vis the reviews, ratings, and rankings of this tire. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase after an unpleasant previous experience with Continental OEM tires on this car.
Highs: Very quiet, smooth ride, and very very good dynamic capabilities
Lows: Hard to to fault the tire, possibly not the most appropriate for dynamic enthusiast driving. But, not a huge priority to me on this car.
