Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 8,000 miles on tires

I like this tire. Much much better than the Falken's last set.
Hands down better than the Kumho alphabet soup.
The east has had a balmy winter so I haven't seen any snow and can't report.
My driving style is mostly hyper-miler as such I simply don't brake for curves and turns, actually hardly use brakes at all. It helps that I'm a pilot and boater - note neither of those have brakes.

As a hyper-miler, I take turns much faster than most people. These tires compliment my driving style cause they are pretty sticky and predictable in turns. The wet performance is superb, which is my most important factor in choosing a tire.
My recent MPG is 33MPG mixed highway, suburban, city. That's in a car who's EPA rating is 18/24. Yes I really do beat EPA by >50% on a V rated tire.

No complaints regarding tire noise but at 8K most previous tires were still quiet.
