Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 20,000 miles on tires
December 04, 2012

Nice enough tire, but began cupping at 15k miles. At 20k miles, noise is a constant. Upon close inspection, the cupping seems pretty minor...but the noise is unsettling. I put on a set of Michelin X-Ice X3 for the winter and the car handles much better al around. Disappointed in these Contis....will put up with it and wear them for as long as I can stand it. Will not stay with the brand...they were highy rated, but the cupping noise detracts from any claims to all season competency.
