Initial Review, 500 Miles on Tires
I've only had these tires a couple weeks so I can't comment on treadwear or wet/snow performance. But I can say that the difference in ride quality is phenomenal (they replaced run flats). A MINI Cooper suspension is stiff by design; but with run flat tires, on 17" rims, in sport mode if you hit a nickel lying in the road, youll spill your coffee. With the Continental Extreme DWS tires I can hit all the loose change I want. Plus, the run flats were very loud whereas the Continentals are so quiet that I can now hear my wife telling me to slow down. Im very happy with these tires.
