Tire Pros

Quiet ride Good handling *Minimal treadware

Tire Cons

Honestly, non yet

I drive a 2005 BMW X5 4.8is. I have gone through a set of Michelen Demaris (quicker wear, louder, harsher ride, $$$) and two sets of Vredenstien Susantas (SUPER quick wear, decent noise, "ok" on grip). When I had to get a new set in early 2011, I liked the reviews on the Conti Extreme COntact DWS. The guy at a Discount tire store (not the store I ultimately purchased from) really steered me away from these tires, staiting that his wife had them on her BMW and while he agreeemed the tread wear was great, he said they were really loud tires. I stuck to my guns and while he continued to push back (politely), I bought them....and I am very pleased with these tires. I am in sales, so I drive a lot, city and hwy, and these Extreme Contact DWS's win in all categories for me > Wear, Noise, Grip/Ride, and price. I will buy these tires again. It is always confusing when the reviews dont match the tire store's opinion. Very glad I trusted the reviews. Give these tires a good look-see.
