Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 8,000 miles on tires
October 09, 2012

As background, I used to autocross a lot. I am a very aggressive driver. My cars all are immaculately maintained.

I frequently drive from Nevada to California, all times of the year and needed tires good for summer and winter. I80 between Sacramento and Reno is not the smoothest road out there, by long shot. These tires give a great ride year round. The traction, wet or dry inspires confidence. I would describe the grip as tenacious. In the snow, this is the best traction I have experienced in a non-dedicated winter tire. Ever. I just put a set on my 2000 Toyota Avalon (+1) and it feels like a new car.
