Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 24,500 miles on tires
June 01, 2012

I replaced a set of Pilot A2's from Michelin that were useless on snow! I chose Extreme Contact DWS's based on your reviews and I have not been disappointed! Dry traction is a good as it can get! Same can be said about wet road traction. I have yet to experinece hydroplaning or slippage around corners! Snow tractioon does exist with this tire. 2 or less and this tire just eats up the road! When it gets deeper then there is a bit of slippage, particularly from a standing start! In deep snow caution is needed! The tires are substantially quieter than the A2's and the overall experience is outstanding compared to the A2's and at a significant savings! The only complaintI have is on really cold mornings there is a flat spot bumping for the first few miles that disappears after the tires are warmed! I have recommended this tire to several friends and some have purchased them. All seem as happy as a peacock with three new feathers! An extraordinary tire at a down to earth price!
