Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Tire. I have 2 BMW's, 2009 Z4 35I which i have the original Extreme Contact DWS tires placed on it. I raised the air pressure 4lbs more (33 to 37). The ride changed significantly.The ride was much smoother and quieter without sacrificing performance. It performed well in all seasons includung snow. The second vehicle is a 2007 X3 3.0SI M series badge with Sport kit. Having the performance package made the vehicle ride rough, the DWS06 tires also smoothed out the ride and enhanced the the performance. I have not been through a winter season with the 06's yet, but am confident they will exceed all my expectations. I truly love the DWS tires and will perchase them as long as they are in production.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2012 Infiniti G37X AWD Sedan I just bought a set of these tires in Oct 2016, and the tread is almost gone. I do a lot of Highway driving, I have the car aligned twice per year and the tires rotated every 5K. When I first got them on my Infiniti, They were unbelievable. But now they make my care feel like it hydroplaning in the rain, and I cannot wait until the winter to get new tires. I went to the dealer to have them looked at, They wouldn't even bother to look at the tires. They said it was to short of a period. How about the DWS are worn off on the tire, pretty extreme sign to me that they should be replaced within the one year. But that's just me. Just let the manufacturing co. Know what's is happening in the real world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAMARO SS I was shopping for new tires and comparing my existing brand (begins with the letter P) when the dealer mentioned "Continental", I knew nothing about this company. I was just going to buy what I already had but it made more sense to get the ExtremeContact DWS06 (F-245/45/20, R-275/40/20). I needed a tire that would provide smooth handling and most importantly safety features in the rain since I live in Florida. My car has been riding on these awesome new shoes for a month, they feel comfortable, smooth, and most importantly safe. The warranty was a great selling point but the technology between the thread is most impressive. Needless to say, I am very satisfied and would recommend this tire if you're also in need of quality and safety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the whole package I have an unusual obsession over tires and I spent months shopping for my next set. I decided on the ExtremeContact DWS06. I have owned Pirelli, Good Year, Dunlop, Cooper , BF Goodrich and many others but these are the best by far. They look great. They ride quiet. Incredible grip. I'm used to kicking the back end out a little but these tires just stick. They are new so i cannot comment on treadlife but if they wear as good as Continentals that I have owned in the past, I'm confident that i will be satisfied with the treadliife as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tire These tires have outstanding handling in all weather and they handle great. I have put them on my new Audi A6 TDI. The only problem I had is that they shake profusely after the car sits for a bit. I spoke to continental and after 6 weeks I had them replaced. The shaking is because of the Nylon in the sidewall I was told by engineers which in the end makes the tire more durable and it extends the life of the tire I'm told by Continental. In a nutshell, I am very pleased with the tire. I just wish they could fix the shaking. I

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tire sidewall bubbled Purchased and installed DWS06 at my land rover dealer in 9/2015 at 79800 miles to replace the conti-sport contact 4x4. Currently at 85900 miles and on 10mm, 11 is new, there is an almost 3 dia bubble on one tire. With 45k miles to go, I'm feeling like this but was a wast of funds. If I was within the three month trial period, I would have switched the set to the stock conti tire. I have conti's on my other three vehicles, but not the DWS06. I have been faithfull to continental tires to this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER HAPPY Man these is how tires should be. I couldn't be happier i have a mustang gt manual and i used to have Pirelli P Zeros which sucked big time. Ever since i started using this car i can literally feel more handling,traction,less noice and above all the car is really smooth now it now really feels like its floating. Drove in wet and dry conditions and is super responsive and has a lot of traction. Snow on the other end is something i have to wait and try driving on it. Super happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride and quiet!- Great tire I've been using these tires for about a year now on my Chrysler Crossfire. As soon as I swapped from my previous tires (I'm not sure if I can mention other brand names so I'll just give a clue- the mascot looks a lot like Staypuff from Ghostbusters.) Anyways.. as soon as I made the swap I noticed how quietly and smooth my car drove. I've never had tires that offered such contact with the road in wet conditions either. I love these tires and will continue to use Continentals from this point on.
