I thought you wanted a summer tire? The best= Michelin Pilot super sport. DWS is a great a/s tire.
right right, DWS is dry, wet snow, aka an all season tire; which is great at being more versatile but will give up some of the dry and wet advantages to have some snow use. You will want to look at just the extreme contact DW, a summer only tire. Unless you want an all season, then the DWS gets great reviews for that.

The Michelin Pilot super sports are pricey though...about $70 more per tire than the ventus he asked about.

Have you read about any of the tirerack tests, always seem helpful to me.
