Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 235/45R18XL 98Y BSW
The Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 tire is an ultra-high performance all-season tire for sport trucks, performance sedans, sports coupes and sports cars.
The Continental ExtremeContract DWS06 features Continental's SportPlus Technology that enhances handling, wet traction and wear. For maximum wet traction and longer tread life, this tire has an advanced silica-enhanced all-season tread compound. This is molded and shaped into a unique asymmetrical tread design with Continental's chamfered edges for improved tread contact in dry conditions. The traction grooves (ridges in the bottom of the tread grooves) improve the vehicles traction in snow. This tire also has outboard shoulder blocks for enhanced responsiveness and stability in cornering. In addition, its independent blocks at the center with x-sipes and high-angle, criss-cross grooves gives biting edges for outstanding all-direction traction on light snow and or wet roads. The inboard shoulder helps dissipate water for improved resistance to hydroplaning and traction in the worst weather conditions.
The Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 tire has a quick view treadwear indicator to identify misalignment concerns early before wear patterns are too far advanced to be corrected easily. This also confirms suitability of the tire to different driving conditions with its Tuned Performance Indicators that are visible letters molded in the second rib from the outboard shoulder to give alert on the performance level of the tire. The visible “DWS” means the tire has most of the tread remaining for traction in Snow, as well as on Dry and Wet roads. As the tread wears, the S disappears, leaving “DW” molded in the sidewall. This means the tire has sufficient tread for optimal performance on Dry and wet. The remaining “D” indicates the tire has appropriate depth only for dry conditions.
The Contental ExtremeContact DS06 has twin steel belts with spirally wound Jointless nylon cap plies for long-term durability even on high-speed driving conditions while lessening weight and providing uniform ride performance.
The factory Continentals on my Jag XF AWD were a little to "floaty" for me. Moving to the DWS06 gave me more performance feel and handling .
Replaced the original set of P-Zero's on my Q7. Quiet ride and excellent handling in a 50K mile tire. Highly recommended this Continental Tire.

I have typically bought two types of tires - cheap all-seasons, or expensive summer tires. In either case, I rarely get more than a year and a half or two years out of a set. I told myself it was worth it because of the performance I was getting out of the Pilot SuperSports, for example. But this time I decided to try the Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires, since they have a 50k mile treadwear warranty. Do I believe that the warranty is really USABLE? Nah, I imagine the terms and details make it so that if they go out at 40k miles, you're unlikely to be helped. However, it does say that they EXPECT them to last 50k miles, which is more than the manufacturers of no-warranty tires are saying. I was happy to find out that these tires are as quiet as any others I've owned. And compared to the summer tires, these have much better response and give me much more confidence driving in heavy rain. And if I had to, I could drive in the snow. I've put about 10k miles on them so far, and the treadwear thus far is barely noticeable. So far so good!
Great tires at a reasonable price
These tires handle well in all conditions and they were priced very reasonably! Definitely would purchase them again.
Best all season tires
Those are one of the best all season out there. You will never regret buying them
I had these tires installed right before a Chicago winter and am amazed by the difference over my stock tires. My handling has improved especially at high speeds, and my ride is very noticably smoother over bumps. Road noise is greatly reduced as well. I would definitely recommend these tires and hope they last as long as the manufacturer claims.
