My next Tires....ExtremeContact DWS

OEM is good in dry but scary during heavy rains and light snow/ice.Currently number one on Tire Rack.

Good Tire Rack test.

they suck in the summer though, if you plan to run them all year. I have the F1 All seasons and am glad they performed well in the snow. in the dry and wet the F1's would wreck all the other tires...

I have the DWS tires on my X, and I'm pretty impressed with them so far. They are fun as hell with traction control off, but hold their own in even heavy snow. Our northeast snow storm is proof of that for me. And as for dry roads, they grip really well. They really impressed me considering they're an all season tire.

how are they in the summer for high speed handling? Anyone else have them and care to chime in?
I have heard good things about these as well, but I can't imagine they handle in the hot dry summer anywhere close to the OEM tires.

I have these exact tires on my 2010 EVO MR Touring and they are great. I just ran them while doing a winter driving course at O'Neil Rally school in New Hampshire, and drove them at high(er) speeds on the freeway home. Great for both purposes.
