Continental Extreme Contact DWS tire/roadnoise update

Do not post much but y'all can check for my previous posts to see what all I have gone thru to quieten down wifes 09 coupe. Just changed tires to Continental Extreme Contact DWS in stock size. WOW, what a difference even in town and the highway noise was slashed dramatically. Just unbelievable difference to stock Michelins. $825.00 mounted, balanced with tax.

I really hope that's for 18" tires otherwise you got hosed. You can get the 17's for


*edit* Looking back at your previous posts it looks like you do have the 18's, so not a bad price on them then. I had the DWS's for about 1000 miles before my TL was totaled. Only saw fair weather with them though.

I've heard nothing but great things about the DWS tires. That price seems awfully high though!

They are premium all-weather. I'm running 225/40R18 on my rear wheels with the DWS. They're worth it even if you don't see snow. My front tires are not quiet and would not like snow, lol. My price was similar.

They're and then you have to pay to have them mounted and balanced. $75 for mounting and balance is pretty average.

Sheese, some of y'all are tough. That price was pretty good considering i had to pay freight, mount, balance and state & city sales tax of 8 1/4. I don't care though, these tires are really quiet. I smell a road trip coming up to the mountains.

I agree. The DWS is an awesome tire. I have about 35K on my current set and even worn closeto the wear bars, they contine to be quiet and handle well. Wet traction is diminished but they haven't done anything flakey. I just ordered my second set and will be mounting them soon. They recently ran a special... Buy 4 and get a free GPS (Magellan). Will make a great Xmas gift for someone.

I'm sure glad I found this thread... I've been looking all over the web to get as much feedback as I can on these tires, and it's good to hear from folks who have the same vehicle.

I'm ordering a set from a local tire shop tomorrow for my sedan (18" coupe wheels-235/45 18). however, to the tune of $224 a tire... I was hard pressed between the DWS and the Yokohama AVID ENVigors, but I feel confident in my decision.

The only thing that worries me is that some reviewers have described a lack on on-center feel on, say, the highway. I love the way the Accord tracks on the highway currently, I can drive with one finger if I'm ever that lazy.

There have been DA members that experienced balance issues but the reviews and feedbackc I've read have been overwhelmingly positive. They're easily the best tires I've ever owned. They're grippy dry and wet, quiet, compfortable, fuel milage didn't suffer much, and the treadlife isn't too bad. I can probably eek out close to 40,000 miles on them... not bad considering I tend to drive a bit more aggressively than most.

And the snow traction is impressive... at least when the treads are new. While traction is rated low for snow, it wasn't a main concern for me in NC. I just had them installed and got caught in a snow storm in PA and they were surprisingly sure footed. Otherwise, It's been mostly non-snow driving. Hwy speeds in the rain are uneventful as well.

Ordered my DWS's today! Chose a different shop, quoted me $220 a tire, plus $16 for mounting & road force balancing per tire. PLUS, $100 mail-in rebate...

Should have them mounted on Saturday!

You will not regret it, I just love these tires. Had to sneak out with wifey's coupe last night for a quick 20 mile cruise. It is like a different car.

Gotcha. I was pricing the DWS 225 45 tires which are significantly cheaper. Either way, not THAT much of a difference. I'm hoping to put some on MackDaddy's 18x8 Enkei EKM3s he sold me. Trying to decide between 225 45 or 235 40 on a 7th gen coupe. No drop at the moment but I have pro-kit ready to install as soon as I figure out my struts. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions on the 225 vs 235 debate. I'm pretty sure I'd be fine either way based on the overall diameter compared to the stocks.
