Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 40,000 miles on tires
January 29, 2013

When it was time to replace the stock contisport contacts, I did some research and decided I would give these a shot as they seemed to be the best bang for your buck. I was not wrong! The tires were quite, the lasted longer than the original contisport tires, and as far as the comfort level between the original contisport and the dws's, it was night and day! All of those wonderful attributes did come at a price though, going from the supper grippy contisport tires to the dws's you will immediately notice a difference in cornering stability. The sidewallls on the dws's just seemed scary soft around some of the corners on my daily commute. Regardless, I am currently looking at getting another set for my new car, which should be enough to show how impressed I was with this tire.
