Initial Review, 9,000 Miles on Tires
November 28, 2012

We placed these tires on our car one day after picking it up at the dealer. We knew that the RFT (Dunlop SportMax) would be Very stiff and would be dangerous in winter, so we went with the Conti DWS. Excellent tire! Understand that it is not going to handle like the summer only performance tire... But it is easily 80% of the way there. Steering isn't the immediate harsh imput of a true summer performance tire but it is still very quick. They stick like glue in sharp turns. After 9000 miles the tires still looked like new with no noticeable tread wear. Our car was totaled by huricane Sandy and we ordered the identical car from BMW.... And we will be placing Conti DWS on the new one as well. Very Satisfied Customer.
