These are just an outstanding tire. They have improved the handling and ride of my Acura TL greatly. Traveling through the curves of I 64 on the Virginia and West Virginia state line I have to watch my speed. The ride and the handling in curves is excellent. In packed snow and light snow we had this year I had no slippage or loss of traction. In rain they slice through standing water with out pulling on the steering. I am glad the good reviews here lead me to buying the DWS.
