Rated 5 out of 5�by Mick Miller Super allover, I cannot believe it I live in Switzerland where Snow, Rain, Cold and very warm weather in Summer is common (used to live in Arizona). In Europe u cannot buy a tire with a "miles guarantee" or something like that. The average car over here is driven not more than 80'000 km (50'000 miles) for the car's lifetime. I saw these tires in Arizona and bought them since I am extremely sick of switching to wintertires very october and switching back in april again. First I thought I would take a huge (also for insurance reasons in case of an accident) risk. Then it started to snow extremely and our highway(autobahn) had more thank 10 inches in the morning, me driving to work for about 80 miles. I drive a 3.0 Liter Diesel Audi A4 wagon Quattro with 350 hp's. This is the best tire I ever had. I actually cannot believe it. The conditions in rain and snow are superior. In dry (when warm) medium. I have put 40'000 Miles on the first set. Still the S is indicated. Their problem is when cold, they are inbalanced, but goes away once warm. M September 17, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5�by AcuraTypeS Giving them a second look. When I had first purchased my vehicle the dealership had these tires on and I was to say the least skeptic. I have come from a long line of Goodyear lines on all of our family vehicles and saw these tires as "cheap" or sub par. For the first 10k I was VERY pleased, even in the thick of winter they performed above and beyond what I had expected. Unfortunately after about 15k they started to wear unevenly I had them taken it to be looked at and the dealership said I had not followed the 6-8k rotation schedule. Like I previously stated I have always purchased Goodyear and never had to rotate my all seasons less than 10k usually unless I saw uneven wear. To make a long story short, at 25k I am replacing two of the tires because my two front tires (Which were rotated only once) are thrashed. If you are seriously considering buying these tires then FOLLOW THE WARRANTY GUIDELINES. If you do not then the tires will NOT last and they will NOT do anything to help you. December 21, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5�by Acura TL lover Too Noisy I bought the Extreme Contact DWS in December of 2010. I've put about 35,000 mostly highway miles (roads with speed limits at 45mph or higher) on the tires. I still see the DWS on the tire tread. They have been very good at handling in dry and wet weather. Haven't really driven much in snow as the past two winters have been mild in the mid-Atlantic. The worst part about these tires is THEY ARE VERY NOISY!!! I was warned about this shortly after I bought them by a technician when he drove the car trying to diagnose a bent wheel. I had the tires for a few weeks at that point and didn't think I could take them back. He said I needed to really rotate them a lot and I tried to do that but I started noticing the noise around 10-12k miles and now its very loud. At my last rotation, the tech told me these tires were not good and tried to get me to buy new ones but I can't afford $1,000 for new ones. If they weren't so loud I would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5�by GoConti What a difference! I recently replaced a set of Goodyear Eagle F1 all season tires with the Continental Extreme Contact DWS on my Acura 3.2CL type S and man what a difference! The goodyear's were a stiffer tire and handled better in aggressive dry conditions, but they became incredibly noisy, began to wear unevenly, and the ride was terrible. The Conti's are an unbelievable all around tire! Like I said they don't handle quite as good in aggressive cornering, but all around they blow the goodyear's away! The Conti's are extremely quiet, provide a soft ride, and the rain and snow traction is incredible! I got to drive in good old Chicago snow for the first time, and was impressed at the amount of confidence I was able to drive with due to the traction the Conti's provided. This is the fourth set of tires that have been on this car (Michelin O.E.M., Toyo Proxes, Goodyear F1 all season) and is by far the best tire I have ever had on a car. They offer something for every driving condition and driving style. I will never put a different tire on any of my cars! December 23, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5�by BSinPDX Excellent A/S Tire This was my fourth set of tires - installed at just over 40k miles on my Audi A3 (FWD). My first set were stock A/S Pirellis which were extremely noisy and didn't offer much grip; got rid of them after 15k because I hated them. My second were Bridgestone RE050A's which were louder, had better dry gr
