Decided to try the Conti DWS after several total fails with OEM Dunlops. I read the TireRack reviews and spent a good 3 weeks deciding on the tires I needed for the Bimmer. I could NOT be happier. Seriously - great performance, tread life MUCH better than the Dunlop OEM's, Handing has been excellent - even 30K miles later, quiet and perform well while cornering since day 1. I just hit the wear bars and will be buying another set. I am so happy with Conti's I put the LX SUV tires on my wife's Volvo Xc90 and she still thanks me.
