I bought these tires a good 2 years ago and have put about 63,000 miles on them. I drive approximately 110 miles a day round trip to and from work. These have lasted me 2 winters so far in CT, 1 of which was a record winter as far as snow goes and I never once had a single issue. Even with 63k miles the DWS Tread wear marks are still visible. We received about a foot of snow in the beginning of November 2012, when I had about 60k miles on the tire and I had no issues at all with traction. I HIGHLY suggest these tires to anyone, and have had several friends purchase a set for there car's based on my experience and they are glad they did. Very well done Continental! I will definately be buying these tires again for my Subaru.
