Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 30,000 miles on tires
January 29, 2013

I bought this car with these tires on them and when two were worn I replaced them with the same. They are very good tires and hold the road well in all types of conditions. I like to take corners hard sometimes and these tires hold on. I do wish they would last a touch longer, but I know some of the wear is from aggressive driving. The only downfall I have noticed is cupping causing the 'woob' sound. Its really annoying though I wonder if this is caused by extra camber in the suspension at factory (nothing modified). Its especially noticeable after rotating. I will say once the 'S' is gone from 'DWS there is no Snow traction. In fact, much traction is suddenly gone, like a switch for traction was turned off. All in all, a great tire.
