Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
November 05, 2011

Wet traction: 10 miles after installation, these tires saved me. I came up on a highway accident in the pouring rain; the 70-0mph braking was remarkable. My foot was planted. I was shocked I didn't hit the car in front of me. No experience in ice or snow yet.

Road Noise: I'm convinced this will always be an issue with Acura. However, these tires are better than the OEM Michelins. I can now use voice commands on my HTC EVO at 75mph and couldn't before.

Dry Performance: No issues here. They feel safe, comfortable and responsive.

Tire Value: Incredible. So far, not spending $1200 at the Acura dealer was a great decision and I don't feel quality was sacrificed.

Tire Rack: Worked perfectly. This was my first purchase and will be a repeat customer. Using a locally recommended installer worked seamlessly. I ordered on Friday afternoon, received a call from installer on Monday, tires installed on Tuesday.
