Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Initial Review: 500 miles on tires
December 28, 2011

Replaced the Goodyear Eagle F1 A/S's that were great when they were new, but got unbearably noisier the more they wore. Decided to go with the Continental DWS's after all the reviews from people with the same car here and on the Acura discussion forum, www.acurazine.com

The 1st thing I noticed was the vast improvement in ride comfort and lack of road noise, like no other tire I've ever owned. I feel like I'm driving a new car aqain! First day in the rain yesterday and they didn't hydroplane AT ALL. Although I consider myself a 'spirited' driver, I don't take turns at 90 so I can't complain about soft sidewalls like some others have. I also haven't experienced any flat spotting either. No wonder this tire is a Consumer Reports recommended Ultra High Performance all season tires. I'll update this review after the snow and ice hit soon. But so far at least, LOVE 'EM, LOVE 'EM, LOVE 'EM !
