^ 17's or 18's?

Vuj311 04-07-2012 10:20 AM

17s because i feel like the 18s would rub when i get my coilovers and i slam them

The DWS is an all-season tire. It's a very good all season tire, but it still makes some compromises in the handling department so that you can at least get around in light to moderate snow if necessary. It's my tire of choice because while we do get snow here every year, it's never enough to justify having winter tires.

What you probably want are the Continental ExtremeContact DW. Kumho and Hankook are both building pretty good summer tires nowadays as well, if you're on a budget.

my favorite tires ive driven on were probably my goodyear fortera's but i really enjoy my nexen n5000 that i have now


only downside to the fortera's is they seemed to wear quickly

The Conti DW's are great tires, I had a set on my Cooper and they offered a huge bang for the buck.

i think i might stick with the dw's.
