Follow-Up Review: 1,500 miles on tires

WOW!! Great performance in snow! Had to drive through the recent Lake-Effect Blizzard in Northern Indiana and these tires made me feel secure with good, stable traction. Also, wanted to reinforce my earlier positive ratings. The only weakness (but a reasonable trade-off for comfort) ia little bit of looseness in quick steering manuevers. However, I raised my psi from factory 30psi to 35psi and responsiveness is fine! <br><br>These are the BEST tires I've ever had. Looking forward to many miles of FUN driving. It's like a new performance car! Highly recommend these Continental DWS Tires!

Just got these Continentals installed today. Very impressed, everything I had hoped for (so far). [I will do a follow up review after driving them in various conditions including here in Michigan!]

I replaced OEM Hankook 725's which had 51k but wearing out unevenly. Had drift/pull, noise, harsh ride, prematue edge wear on the Hankooks. These DWS tires solved all of that and then some.(I also got a wheel alignment prior to installation and still had drift on the Hankooks.) Based on the great reviews, I'm looking forward to driving in challenging conditions.

Thank you Tire Rack for providing such a valuable, helpful website. The product info, reviews, tests, and articles are wonderful!
