I've driven on all sorts of rubber and always had agressive rubber on my fun cars and the Conti DWS really isn't too bad a compromise and I've pushed them quite hard and while they do break loose before a dedicated summer tire they were quite predictable and in the rain they have handled very good. The Focus is mostly my wife's driver and she never will get even close to the limits of the DWS and I wanted something that suits her needs more than mine and I wanted something that will last a while.
Alot of local WRX guys run the DWS in the winter and really like them but for dry grip the DW have that covered and aren't overpriced.
