has anyone here ran their focus on slicks yet? I mean more in the past when most people in here used to own a focus. il be picking up 2 wheels soon and get my almost bold slicks installed on the front wheels. an old set of wheels had slicks installed on them but never raced on track with them.

Yup........that little "S" at the end of DWS actually stands for SUCK not SNOW

at least from a performance standpoint

the Conti ExtremeContact DW is what I had on my other BMW and they did incredibly amazingly insane in pretty much all weather.

I want to run them on some set of wheels for DD use and rain auto-x's because guys are saying they run almost similar times to the Hoosier H2O's
