Switched from a high performance summer tire, to the DWS and almost could not tell the difference in the dry, the grip is that good! So far, they have been through an inch accumulation of snow, and displayed excellent grip in that condition as well. The grip in light snow only broke loose when I intentionally did so to test the limits. You really can not realistically push the limit if these tires on the street, would be curious how they fare on track/auto-x, but I won't be doing that with these. An excellent tire for the road, and really the best you can get, short of specific application tires (snow/ice, or comp/race tires). The hype is real, get them, you won't be disappointed!
