I purchased these for my Honda Accord Coupe V6 after the O.E. Michelin's wore out.
I drive about 35,000 miles a year and have been very pleased with them. They didn't last as long as Michelin's but I am still able to drive to work in light snow conditions and have never hydroplaned since I put them on the car.
Michelin's I would never leave the house with as little as 1-2 of snow.
Accord has 126k miles and I am ordering a second set of the Continental Extreme DWS. (this set lasted 56K )- could probably get a little more out of them if we weren't headed in to winter.
They are a little louder than I prefer but it's an excellent tire in wet and
Also 0rdering these tires for my wife's VW Passat.
Very happy with Continental DWS. Between the two cars I'll have ordered three sets in
