Ready to replace the OEM Tires on my 2010 CTS AWD. Looking for any experience with "Continental ExtremeContact DWS" Tires. Actually any and all suggestions for replacements will be appreciated.

Actually, The Michelins Pilot Sport A/S Plus were my tire of choice until I came across the Continentals. How long are you running them and how do you like them.

Thanks ... I do check Tire Rack, but, sometimes, getting comments from this forum is good.

I put the Extreme Contact DWS's on a 99 Porsche Boxster (P265/35/18) about 1,000 miles ago. This treadwear numbers are more than double of any tire I've purchased in the past for this car. I was expecting to be giving up some of the stickyness of the softer tires I've run in the past in exchange for longer treadwear. (I only got 10,000 miles out of my last 2 sets of Dunlop DZ101's). So far I have been very pleased... the car still corners like it's riding on rails.

10k? Wow. Do you get any repeat passengers? :D

I have the DWS's installed on a 2010 Camaro and they are great tires. I plan on installing them on my CTS CPE also.

The DWS look like an excellent tire, particularly if you need snow traction. Living in Houston, I've got no need for snow consideration. I leaned toward the Michellin Sport Pilot A/S, but, after seeing the comparison video on Tire Rack a few weeks ago, I've decided to give the Pirelli Pzero Nero's a try when I replace my first set next week. Quite a bit cheaper than the Michellins and I think they'll be a better fit for me here in southern Texas.

I found this comparison test helpful. If I lived further north, I'd probably favor the DWS:

One thing for certain, I won't be putting another setting of those Michellin HX MXM4's on again. I hope Cadillac got a really good deal on them for use as the original tire. They are certainly grossly overpriced for what they offer.

Ok ... The DWS tires are on National back-order and nobody knows when they will be available. So, further research led me to "Goodyear Assurance Comfotred". Tire Rack gave these a good rating. Anybody have any experiences?

Will be replacing my michelins in a few months even tho two were just replaced
under warranty less than 100 miles ago. The other two only have 13980 miles on
them.Michelins has not impressed me at all.

After much research and reading test after test and reviews on just about every
tire out there, I have decided on two tires. They are Pirrelli Pzero Nero 235 50 ZR18 and the Nokian summer tires.We don't have snow here in Baton Rouge La so I do not need snow tires or all season tires either. The Nokians are a highly rated tire with a long tread life, but they are not cheap.. They are around $300 each which is not bad for a good tire.You can surly pay much more for a tire that
is not nearly as good.
