I had Goodyear GT's on my car and only got about 15k worth of use out of them before they were wore out. This is my wife's car and she is not hard on the car or tires for that matter. The Continental DWS tires I purchased seem to be a lot better tire, quite an upgrade over the Goodyear's, especially in the rain and snow. I can't really say anything as to how they are wearing, but I have not noticed any yet and imagine I can get more than 15k out of them. The road noise is minimal and they have fair response in the dry. Again, my wife really likes these tires a lot more than her previous set and is really satisfied with their performance in the rain and snow.
