Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
February 12, 2013

I took Michelins off my car with 78,500 miles on them. I never imagined I would switch tires - as my brother said after 78,500 - you cant ask for more. But the Tire Rack ratings on the Michelins was spot on - very good in dry, but they gave up a bit in rain and snow. In snow it was more my TSX, me as a drive and its electric nannies that kept us going. As soon as I put these tires on the car, I found the wet and snow traction I had been missing. As good as it gets. They dont handle as sharp or have as sharp steering feel, but its minor (and I just put 4 more pounds of air in the DWS to put there where I ran the Michelins which narrows the gap) but as an all around tire, they are SUPERB. They were also $100 less A TIRE than the Michelins, so even if I only get 45-50K out of these, they were definitely worth the switch...
