Continental ExtremeContact DW
Initial Review: 6,000 miles on tires
November 28, 2012

This tire has been fantastic when coupled with the AWD on my Subaru. I have to try very hard to get it to even squeal in a hard corner. In wet weather it has been equally responsive and grippy. Most of my 6,000 miles thus far have been on Colorado mountain roads and I have always been able to rely on this tire to allow me to be aggressive in corners and maintain a reasonably comfortable ride. My only complaint is that on gravel roads it will sometimes get a little squirrly under hard acceleration but once you figure that out, it is easy to compensate for.
