Wow, what a tire! I rotated the tires every 5000 miles and the tread depth almost look new. The noise level has increased a slight bit but I think its probably me. Overall I am very impressed with the quality and performance. Since last install I have also lowered the vehicle which still absorbed a lot of the imperfections of the road.
Initial Review: 6,000 miles on tires

I upgraded to 18 inch wheels and needed a set of all seasons for my daily driver. The DWS seemed to be a pretty well rounded (no pun intended) tire that offer decent treadwear rating. To my surprise, the noise level was very low. It offers very good dry traction but I was a little disappointed with the cornering stability as the sidewalls are a little soft. However, this tire is amazing with wet traction. I drive 93 miles one way to work so round trip with traffic gives me two and half hour drive a day. These tires make my ride a lot more enjoyable but wish the cornering stability could be better. I purchased a set of Kumho ECSTA all seasons for my Audi A6 at the same time and wished I had ordered the DSW's for both. For the price, you really can't beat it.
