Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
February 12, 2013

I bought these for my new-to-me WRX the day before a decent snowfall in NYC. I was replacing some quite poor NEXENs. I was amazed at the immediate improvement in tire noise, steering feel and responsiveness. Ride quality increased too. In the 6-10 snow fall we had, the car dealt with it easily, without even the slightest vagueness in steering. As a point of comparison, the NEXENs sent me sideways in merely 2-3 inches. I previously purchased the Continentals on my old Pontiac G8 GT but didn't have the opportunity to review before selling the car. Here, I anticipated many thousands of miles on my WRX and look forward to the summer.
