Previous tires Mich super sport A/S; never again. The Continental DWS are AWESOME. Quiet, great response, and did I say quiet....Only 3500 miles, but no appearance of wear. I have always purchase Michelin tires with their pricing premium and this was a great learning experience regarding other companies that are not only competitive, but better in all ways. DID I Say Quiet??? I will next follow-up at 10k.
