Still really like these and are pretty nice for a $115 wheel. These seem a bit common in my area but most are the black version which is the very reason I went with gunmetal.
The Conti DWS is the best A/S tire I've driven on but get a bit sketchy on packed icy roads but are better if you have an inch or two of snow to drive on. Definetly would want real snows if this was a winter driver. In the dry the grip is solid and the breakaway is predictable but still acts like an A/S at the limits but I have no regrets going with the tire.



Got a little over 5000 miles on 'em and have noticed no wear yet.
