Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 33,000 miles on tires
September 05, 2012

Live in Germany and travel the autobahns regularly. Have 33,000 miles on these tires and I still do 85 mph in the rain and cruise comfortable over 120 mph in dry conditions. Driving in Germany places extreme pressures on tires and braking, rain and snow handling is essential. If i fly down the highways, climb/descend switchbacks in the Alps, these tires have been superb. I do not know what some of the reviews have cried about road noise and bad weather performance, I think it has more to do with the Hondas and Toyotas they are driving are the problem, not the tires. I would recommend them to anyone and will purchase again. The DWS and are still visible after 33,000 miles, so hopefully I will get 50,000 out of them.
