Tire Pros

Quiet, great traction, great price

Tire Cons

Have not found anything negative

This is really my wife's Corvette and she wants everything perfect. I was VERY sceptical making the switch from Goodyear F1 tires but these Continental Extreme Contact DW tires are awesome. Guys at Discount Tire had an easy time balancing also as they were very close to begin with.

Great tires in dry and wet. Only issue is they will probably only last about 11,000 miles.

Tire Pros

Excellent Roadholding

Tire Cons

None to date

When it came time to replace the OEM Goodyear Eagle F-1's, I approached it with some trepidation not wanting to compromise performance for price. After much study and debate I settled on the Conti DW's. What a great tire! They grip as well or better, ride well, track straight and let me corner as hard as I want! (I don't drive fast, just don't like to slow down for corners!) And the grip in the wet seems great so far. I'd recommend these over the OEM's or any other performance tire.

Tire Pros

Runs wide for the size. Appealing appearance. Quiet. Comfortable. Sticky.

Tire Cons

None as of yet.

I put these in 275/40/17 trim on all four corners of my 2000 WS6. They are very quiet on the street and highways. They stick on launch better than I anticipated. I actually received better grip on these than I did my previous set of Nitto NT555Rs. I haven't notice excessive sidewall rollover during hard cornering either. The tires run about a half inch wider for the size than the standard 275 spec. They look great on the stock 17x9" wheels. I can't really comment on tread wear due to the short time with the tires. Several dyno runs and 2000 street miles haven't had a noticeable impact on the tread depth. For now, I couldn't be happier.
