Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Follow-Up Review: 20,000 miles on tires
Worn out at about 20k miles. <br><br>Not happy with the treadlife, but glad to be rid of them.<br><br>Below about 7/32 they became uncomfortable in the wet. By the time they were down to 5/32 they were downright scary in the wet.<br><br>They also had minor flatspotting when sitting overnight in cold weather, or sitting for a few days in warm weather.
Initial Review: 10,000 miles on tires
Unacceptable vibrations at highway speeds since new. Have had them rebalanced by two different shops and moved them to a second set of wheels and the problem persists. Do a search online and you'll find it's a common complaint about these.
Other than the vibration they are fine tires. Not as good as the Pilot Sport A/S, but cheaper.
If it wasn't for the balancing problem I'd recommend them as a good bang/buck.
