Red Jay 918 well after about 2,100 miles i gotta say they arent bad. love how they look and i cant tell really if they handle any better. we actually just got in a new all season tire last friday:

Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetrical All Season.... ALL SEASON not the summer version (AKA OEM on the '13 ST)

VenomRogue the tires are made from the same mold, just to give you a heads up.

the dunlops are an entry level version of the eagle GT

Red Jay 918 here they are side by side... Dunlops on the right Eagle GT on the left. both have very attractive tread patterns in person.

sleepyboy for that price I'd try them out to lol. I've ran Eagle GT HR's and Currently have worn out Eagle GT's on the SVT. Loved the HR's in the 15" stock size. Got about 20-25k mi out them (not so much the first set due to me being burn out happy). I like them due to the decent dry grip and not so bad wet grip, but ultimately it was the price I liked too. Now that being said they are hella expensive in the 17" size compared to the 15's and I probably try something cheaper on the SVT. I also have used the continentals on my 16's and those damn things lasted for EVER. Can't give a approximate amount of mileage they had cause they were used when I got them but it's a lot, probably 30 maybe even 40k mi? They are still on Yeller' right now but are bald bald bald and have no grip left in dry or wet, the worn GT's on the 17's grip way better as they should.

Red Jay 918 true. maybe ill get them next time. $85 for new tires was too good to pass up

Even though it sounds like you're made up your mind I didn't want this to go unanswered. While the DWS is not equivalent to a dedicated snow tire for snow use, it has proven to have superior snow performance than just about any other all season tire (Nokian all season tires may be the only exception and they are not easily found and cost an arm and a leg if you do find them). It's pretty much the only true "all" season tire that's readily available.

Red Jay 918 to bring an update to this thread, i told my coworker to go ahead & order the Dunlops. you'll see what these will be wrapped around shortly ;) ...if my past threads dont give it away

felixthecat I 2nd that too ^^^^^. I fine that they fall off for dry grip, having a torsen helps thou. Like was said above, I have these dws's for the wet grip & icy conditions. They are great under hard cornering in wet & rainy conditions. If I didn't have to deal w/ icy crappy roads in the winter, then I'd be on Dunlop star specs.

RonMaiden I've gotten a fair amount if feedback on the DWS from a few other car forums I'm on and including a few local guys who run the same roads I do and the DWS is one that seemed to have the consistent good responses but they do get a few complaints about their hard cornering grip but for me the wet traction is more of a safety thing when driving the speed limit but even then I don't really have any complaints about the dry grip and have been quite predictable when they start to let loose.
