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 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Today is Oct 6 2017. I bought these tires from Butler Tires in Alpharetta GA on Mar 03 2016. I have put approximately 12,000 miles on these tires and am very happy with their overall performance...to include wear, handling, road-noise, and ride-comfort. My car is a 2009, 135i with factory staggered-fitment. That said, I have been through several sets of tires. And, generally, the rears wear far-faster than the fronts. This is the first set of tires whereby I am NOT looking at replacing the rears. They still look good, tread-wise, and the DWS is still visible in the tread. Needless to say, I am extremely pleased with these tires. And I will be looking for this exact tire when I need new tires.

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 5 out of 5 by from 15' explorer sport I change the tires on my Explorer Sport from the manufacturer standard issue Hankook Optimo to Continental ExtremeContact DWS06. Now I don't normally review products but this Continental tires are at a level of its on, I can't stress enough how good they are in any weather conditions at any speed. This are high performance tires with an amazing grip combine with a sport profile. You get the best of both, I am highly recommending this tires, they would not disappoint. Continental its a very reputable tire company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable difference! Got an Infiniti G37x last year and it came with some Goodyear tires that were very ho-hum at best. I got these tires and within the very first drive, I could tell that performance was INCREDIBLE in comparison. I got better traction off the line, grip in corners and ride quality was superb. Ran them through Utah winter with lots of snow and between the AWD and these amazing tires I had absolutely zero issues. There wasn't a single snowy road I couldn't tackle. I'm at about 15k of snow, rain, extreme desert heat, street racing (shh, don't tell the cops!) and FAST canyon ripping on these tires and they are just now starting to show signs of wear. Every time I push them harder and faster, they just keep on gripping and keep me going strong. The performance of these tires is UNREAL.
