Continental DWS directional?
 
I am getting ready to order a set of Continental DWS for my 02 SVT. Are these tires directional? I can't tell from the Tire Rack images or info.

Thanks,
OJ

They are asymetrical, but NOT directional. I had some, and liked them a lot. They seem to wear faster than some others, but they handle very well, especially in the rain.

after some googling they are asymmetric and non directional like stated by mainest. i have some and they were pretty good tires throughout the winter. i just switched back to my dw a week ago much better lol, but for colder weather and snow you cant go wrong with dws

i have DWS for my SVT, they are pretty good tires. first set of tires i had to buy. i previously was on fuzions, the DWS has been much better i think. i'm pleased with them

i have DWS's on my wife's Mazda (on since 09/2011) and have a new set on my 2012 SEL. I love these tires. they do NOT wear fast with rotations every 5,000 miles. they are comfortable and have really good traction.

I also have a set of the DWS on my SVT and have been very pleased with them. They are some of the best all-season tires I've ever used in snow and rain.

Got a set last July and have put 6300 miles on them since. Decent dry grip with predictable breakaway and while very good in the rain they are just so-so in the snow.

Very happy with these tires on my wife's Mazda 5. They are definitely not directional.

I have dw only tires, they are awesome, my coworker got dws on his 05 tl he loves them too. I highly reccomend them
