It's been great tires so far. I am on the road quite a bit and need tires that I feel safe with and these measure up for me. Great in the winter but if conditions are too hazardous, I stay home. They have not left me disappointed yet.

The car, which came with Goodyear Eagles, drives like a totally different car. There is no more under/over steer and the car corners like it's on rails. Much quieter than I expected given the aggressive thread pattern.I have not had the chance to test them in ice and snow, but wet handling is unbelievable.

So far they have been wonderful. The tread-wear issues of the predecessor DWS have not surfaced yet and the wear seems to commensurate to the mileage. It is comparatively much better than the DWS in wet traction, and superior in dry and snow traction.

First set of these tires after being recommended these for years by friends. They perform excellent in snow on my AWD Subaru whether its a few inches or climbing over close to a foot getting out of the driveway. Great in rain and gains traction quickly after hitting ice. They're a bit expensive after balancing and alignment, but would buy again

6 months and 4000miles does not confirm enough. BUT! here in the NYC area we had a bad snow storm on a Saturday in January and I drove from Allentown PA to Farmingdale NY with out a single problem, drove sensible while others lost their cool and Panicked. Many sites said the 235/40x18 would not clear. I am very happy, best $1000.00(total with alignment, extra-road hazard & tax) I have spent. And no bubbles!

Having run Continental tires on my motorcycle for the last few years, I decided to give these a try...and I am in no way disappointed! Excellent traction, cornering, handling and stopping in all weather conditions. They aren't the quietest of tires but that adds to their appeal. If you enjoy driving your vehicle to its limits these tires will delight and perhaps even amaze. I will definitely slap another set of these on my car without thinking twice.

So far i am pleased with these tires especially with their snow and slick road traction response. I can't accurately speak to their wear yet but they are a major improvement from the factory issue dunlop 7000 that were poor in any kind of inclement weather.

These are my first set of Continental tires and I have only had them about a month, but in that time we have had a couple of snow storms. Tires handled well in both light and deep snow as well as on wet and icy roads. They are quieter than the Goodyears that were the OEM equipment and they give a comfortable ride.

I couple go nowhere with the factory tires on even a couple inches of snow with an incline. These tires made all the difference in foul weather. I never really pushed them to the limit in the dry but the tread pattern on the tires is a lot less tailored to performance in fair weather.

These tires are an excellent replacement for the OEM tires that the manufacturer originally put on the car. The tires ride very quiet and handle extremely well. Since we didn't have any snow, I can't grade them on that yet. I would definitely purchase these tires again!

The new Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 tires offer fantastic grip in both dry and wet conditions. I honestly haven't driven on them in snow or ice as I normally swap them for a set of Continental ExtremeContact Winter tires at Thanksgiving and swap them back on in Spring. Would definitely recommend them to anyone considering a new set of tires.

Overall, great tire and reasonable price. Replacing more expensive pro contacts.. Very smooth ride and handle well, although not really made for fast acceleration (slight boat like ride in this tire size). Now let's see how they do in the snow this winter...then these will be a fantastic option. Treadwear rating is very high too which is great..

These tires replaced the OEM Michelin tires which at best were ok. After 25,000 they were worn evenly down to 4/32 of tread which I feel is not acceptable. The best part of them was the steering turn in response, but that is where the compliments end. The Conti tires are fantastic! I highly recommend them. The ride is a little smoother, the tire sounds are about the same but at a different frequency but still very muted. Traction is excellent with great wear to date. After 8500 miles I have 9/32 of tread available.

I wanted to wait to comment until after I had put a few hundred miles on my new Conti Extreme Contacts. The guys on Rt 55 (Freedom Plains Rd) took extra time to make sure my tires were balanced and performed well. I had a minor vibration in the steering wheel initially above 50mph, brought the car in and they took care of me right away. Now, 800 miles later, all is going very well. Thanks to Pat and his crew. job well done. The new battery and starter are working very well too! JP

I admit that my review is slanted because when I bought the car recently, it had awful Goodyear LS2 run flats on it. It literally made the car terrible to drive. I read reviews of these, compared them to reviews for Michelin Sport Pilots and decided to go with the Continentals because of the much longer tread life rating. What an unbelievable improvement! These are quiet, handle great, and absorb bumps so much better than what I had. I would absolutely buy these again.

An race car enthusiast who owned a tire shop in queens found these tires invaluable when he spent winters in harsh conditions up in Albany NY and recommended them to me. This is my second vehicle and fourth set of these identical tires. I even had my daughter put them on her car. I live in a hilly area of western Ct and my sonata would not be able to get me home without these Continental DWS tires. They are also high speed rated and excellent in all weather and driving conditions. Even their tread wear life is excellent for such a sticky high performance tire and that's unusual. I love these tires and will continue to purchase them indefinitely. Daniel. Beary

After having these Continental ContiExtreme Contact tires mounted I was instantly elated.

Snow traction was exceptional. Truly the best tires I have purchased in years.

Best tires I ever purchased ! I had a set of Pirelli Scorpion Verde on the car and from day one they were garbage. Hydroplaned from when they were new and very noisy. I had to replace them at half the wear because the noise got so bad. These tires are fantastic! I find myself aiming for puddles just to see at what point they will hydroplane and I haven't been able to get them to do so yet. Smooth and quiet with great handling. I only gave them 8 on deep snow and ice because I didn't have any big storms since I got them. I did have some 2 inch snow and they were night and day from the Pirelli. Ice.....If your intelligent you know nothing but nothing works on ice except tires with studs that are illegal in most states now. They shouldn't even include the ice category for regular tires. My next set of tires will be the same tires for sure !

OEM tires on my vehicle were great, but these tires actually are more forgiving over harsh road conditions than the OEM and the difference was noticeable the second I pulled away. Traction and corning are great as well. Corning adhesion limit performance is probably slightly less that the OEM, but I rarely if ever use the car that way. Overall extremely happy and would by these tires again. I have not noticed any excessive wear - as of yet. Stay Tuned

I bought these tires as the factory tires made driving in snow impossible. Haven't had enough snow to test these yet. I have had them rotated twice at Mavis. The second time, the car pulled to the right, returned to Mavis, didn't get much of an explanation and I think they jusy rotated them back to where they were when I brought the car in. Very disappointing.

Second set of these on my car. I got about 30,000 out of the last set which still had a decent amount of tread just not enough that I'd be comfortable driving on them in snow. When these are worn out in another 30,000 miles I'll buy them again. Quiet and good all year round.

I have had these tires for almost 1000 miles and have driven them in all weather conditions except for deep snow. I bought these tire for their performance in snow, since I no longer have an operating winter vehicle. Some background, I came from AZ when I had BFG Comp tires rated for DRY conditions only. By the time I was able to purchase my new tires, my old tires where almost bald, old(8yrs) and dry rotted. I had gotten caught last minter with them and it was like skating on ice in ANY snow condition. So what I am saying is that any new tire would seem to be Excellent to me. Given that, I can say that they perform better then expected. They have been great in the snow, wet and although I have not pushed them in dry conditions. I find them to be an excellent all weather tire with great ride and they are quiet. I would purchase them again if I am still in snow country. If I was back in AZ, I would not purchase a tire with a snow rating.

I have not experienced Deep snow or Ice traction on the newer version of this tire but if based on previous model it would be in the Fair+ range. Overall the tire are an improvement over the previous Conti Extreme Contact. If you liked the previous tires, you will enjoy these even more. The Fair+ ratings on the Ride and Noise level should factor in on the Speed3 does have a Sports level suspension ie. harder. Also, recommend Salvatore and his team at the Parsippany store location.

These Conti DWS06 tires replaced the earlier version DWS tires on the vehicle. I stated several years ago that I would replace these tires with the same because they're great tires. No problems, they get the job done in all road conditions. We have hills in our area, so pulling my car up a hill on 3+ inches of snow is a plus. I am happy that my FrontWD car behaves more like a FourWD car in the snow.

I highly recommend these tires. I have installed them on 2 of our cars and had such good experience with them that my son on my recommendation had them installed recently on his Subaru WRX. These tires are far superior to original tires, be the Michelin, Bridgestone or whatever. They perform superbly regardless of weather and road conditions.

1 month on the tires. Have driven in very heavy rain with great results, very little hydroplaning. Tire responsiveness in all conditions is great on the WRX both low and very high speeds. While there are performance tires which will give better results in just one of the categories, this tire does it all well. Out performs all previous tires: Bridgestone Potenza G09s, Federal 595s (incredible wet/dry traction but nothing else by the way) and whatever were the original equipment.

I just had these tires installed so I haven't driven in the snow with them yet but so far I am pleased with them overall much better ride than the Michelins I had on previously. My only complaint would be they seem to roll sa bit on cornering.

This is my 2nd set of these tires and the 1st set lasted as advertised before wearing to the wear bars. The last set would be reviewed as this set is. Too expensive but we get what we pay for.

replaced my worn DWS with DWS06. Only 600 miles too soon to truly rate. If they are like my DWS, but only better I am quite sure I will be happy.

Have only had these tires on my Audi for about 1000 miles, but can already tell that they are far superior to the OEM Conti's that they replaced. Dry and wet handling (have not tested them in the snow yet) is noticeably better, but the biggest improvement is the tire's ability to handle bumps. I can't even feel most small bumps and potholes, but the tires still have the aggressive feel that I want from a sport tire. I will definitely be sticking with the Continental DWS going forward.
