Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires are among some of the best high performance all-season radials you’ll find on the market today. Designed for serious drivers who want the best in traction, handling and comfort, the Continental DWS provides that and more.
The DWS, which stands for dry-wet-snow, is geared towards providing maximum traction and performance in all weather conditions you encounter on a daily basis.
The unique thing about this tire is that the letters “DWS” are actually molded into the rib of the tire. As the letter “S” wears away, it lets you know that the tire will not perform as well in snow. Next, the letter “W” will wear off so you know the tire will not perform as well on wet roads. It’s a nice feature once you get used to it.
Something else you will notice with these ExtremeContact tires is how well they ride. Not only do you get a very smooth ride, but one that is quiet as well. Finally, treadwear is good, and Continental guarantees it for 50,000 miles.
Here’s a quick look at how the DWS indicators are designed to work on this tire.
Prices on the Continental DWS tire range from around $100 for a 16″ series model, to approximately $300 for the massive 24″ series tire.
