Continental Extreme Contact DWS
« on: July 25, 2013, 11:55:32 AM »
I put these on while I was at the 2013 Nationals in Flagstaff ... I was planning on replacing the Bridgestone RE760 Sports when I made it back to Baton Rouge ... but after we ran some serious twisties on the way to Flagstaff I found I had a nail in the left front tire and a seriously bad right front (belt was showing on the inside of tire) ... this was in Show Low, AZ ... I made a very scary (for me) drive to Flagstaff and went directly to Discount Tire and had the new tires installed .... huge difference in handling .. noise and ride comfort ... I have put +/- 1,900 miles on the tires so far and love them ... been through a few gulley washers here in Baton Rouge and it handled the wet very well .. installed stock size .. 245/45/18 ... had the 255's on but wanted to see how the stock would handle with the v8 ... not too shabby :) ... of course if I hit it hard all you see is smoke  :cool:  :D I will be installing new shocks all around and brake pads this coming Monday

I have the DW version and am very impressed.  You have to be gentle with your right foot though with 245s.  That V8 should slaughter the rears whenever you want

I have the DW also. Decent ride and they are sticky enough for me! I like them!

I also have the DWS on all wheels. Marvelous tires...Critter
I always wanted to be somebody when I grew up - I realize now that I should have been more specific!!
