Continental ExtremeContact DW

These seem like a good buy, considering the claims of the manufacturer as well as really good treadlife. Anyone have any experience? Luke, your thoughts?

Just swapped to them from Conti Sport II and I have to say they are a better tire all around. Better turn-in, more grip, and a lot quieter.

I just bought the DWS (even though I won't drive in snow). I have about 30 miles on them and They are way better than the old tires. They are not run flats but have a great feel, much less tire noise and no loss of traction that I can tell yet.

I did a lot of research on these and it appears to be a wonderful tire. This will be replacing my Conti 2's in a few weeks. You can't beat the price. I also think the sidewalls looks 100 times better than the Conti 2's!

How many miles do you guys have on yours?
I just swapped my tires to these today. So far the grip seems good, but the response and feel seem worse than the Yokohama's I switched from. Going to give them a few more hundred miles before I make up my mind, but so far not liking them as much.

I thought about those, but decided on the Hankook V12's to see how they compare to the PS2's. I will have them installed next week. My PS2 rear's are shot, but 2 new ones for the back cost more than 4 V12's! Anyway, I have 2 fronts with 40% tread at least that are going to lay around lol

I have had these for about 550 miles now. They were set at 36 PSI. The tires felt like I was just running on the center rib especially at higher speeds. I called the guy I know at Discount Tire the manager and he advised me to drop the PSI to 32. I put that at around 33 PSI. and it's a whole new tire. I don't know if I am losing the advantages of the tire by running it at a lower PSI, but at 36 the tire was unbearable to me. Continental has a 60 day love em or return em on these Extreme Contact DW's. By running them at the lower PSI, do you think I will get improper wear or a lot less miles on the tires? Other than that, they are very nice tires for the money.

In the end I may switch back to Conti 2's or 3's if running these at the lower PSI is problem.
