Tire Pros

Each tire is 2 lbs. lighter than the competing brands, allowing quicker acceleration.

Tire Cons

I catch myself driving more aggressively since the tires don't squeal or break traction like the OEM's did.

If you're a highly spirited driver and want lots of dry and wet grip with hydroplaning resistance and better tread life vs the Extreme tires, this tire is it! The Conti DW really has impressed me; It's a very well balanced tire at a considerable savings.

Tire Pros

High grip helps cornering and braking. Good treadwear for a max performance summer tire.

Tire Cons

It has a little bit more road noise than I would care for.

A very good value for performance tires. One of the better wet handling tires available. I put them on all my cars.
