Excellent traction and handling in wet, dry, and snowy conditions combined with superior tread life, makes the Continental Conti Extreme Contact DWS so desirable that you will want to keep it for yourself.

Features and Benefits
  • A solid outer shoulder and chamfered tread blocks maximize road contact for enhanced performance in dry conditions.
  • High Void-to-Tread ratio with enhanced groove curvature aids in water evacuation for excellent resistance to hydroplaning yielding outstanding wet handling and braking.
  • Sipes and pattern edges bite into snow while Traction Grooves utilize snow-on-snow grip for impressive snow performance.
  • The Conti Extreme Contact DWS features excellent tread life and fuel efficiency thanks to Dynamic Temperature Distribution Technology. It reduces distortion in the tread, thus improving wear and rolling resistance.
  • Tuned performance indicators alert drivers to the tire's performance level in dry, wet, and snowy conditions (DWS).

Comments I've bought a good amount of different tires and these, by far, are the best tires I've ever owned. Dry traction is superb and extremley sticky. Wet traction in flat out AMAZING. I've been 100 mph in a downpour and I didnt feel one hint of hydroplaning. As for winter, for being an all season tire I couldn't ask for better performance in snow. Even with this past New England winter the tires handle it very well. I highly recommend these tires for anyone with any type of vehicle.

Comments These are the best tires I've ever purchased, and they came at a fair price when compared to the stock Bridgestone's, Michelin's, or Pirelli's. This is our second set of DWS's - we fitted our second car 30k miles ago with them, and have no doubt the car will still be as sure-footed as ever this coming winter. I will not hesitate to purchase these tires again in the future no matter what vehicle I own. You can expect 50-60k miles out of these tires if they are cared for.

Comments They are quieter than the original Michelins. I bought these after looking at reviews online. They ride and handle well, as far as mileage its too early to say.
