I spent the last 35,000 miles enduring noisy Eagle GT's that rode like a truck. These Conti ExtremeContact DWS's are like heaven in comparison. Fantastically responsive and quiet as a mouse. Fold in the extremely reasonable price and this was definitely a winning choice. It has made my Acura TL (124,000 miles) drive like it did when it was new...and more. Can't recommend these highly enough. Haven't driven in snow yet, but it sounds like that won't be a problem, if other reviewers are any indication.
