I own a 2007 Eclipse and like many other owners I do not like to stitch tires several times a year. I prefer to purchase a good set of all weather. I must say these are the BEST all weather tires I have ever owned for a sports car. I have had them on the car a little over a year and a half. I had absolutely ZERO trouble navigating the horrid 2011 winter weather. Kansas City had record snowfalls and I made it to work every day on unplowed roads with no complications. The DWS on the tires is very interesting, when I first read reviews I was unsure what they meant. Now after owning them I can see it is a wear gauge built into the tread. I have put around 25K miles on the car and there is very little sign of the S showing wear (it is the first letter to go)I am confident I will get several more miles of use from these tires. I do recommend them, and will be purchasing them again! I hope they are still available when it is time for replacement.
