    Does anyone here have experience with continental tires? I am specifically referencing the Continental ExtremeContact DWX because they have a new version the DWS 06 but at the price I really don't want to screw up when others may have already tried the first version. Everything I read, they sound great and so may replace my Nitto Motivo's (excellent tire and love them) if they are better. I am using the 315/35x20's in rear.

    Are you sure a 315 will fit on the back on a stock wheel??

    I installed their DW (no 'S' since I live in FL), which is a summer only tire on my M45S, very, very happy with them.

    I have them and absolutely love them...no regrets. The car grips and handles way better than the summer P's.

    I just put my Conti DWSs on and so far I like them. Still building up confidence in them since I'm new to this tire. I did a 275/40 and 295/40.

    I couldn't find anything on the DWX.

    I'm not a fan of the Conti DWS. I find the tire way to0 soft (sidewall) for my likely. If you read the reviews on tire rack most people seem to love them.

    Personally I'd take the stock Pirelli tires over these. I've got the Pirelli summer tires on my car and while not the best tire I've ever owned I think they are decent.

    The stock summer Pirellis were good. First time driving with a summer tire. I tend to drive my cars year round so I never had a reason to buy them.

    However I needed an all season. These Contis were the right size, price, and treadwear. Reviews were good too.

    They also have a Extremecontact DW which is more of a performance summer tire. Im going that direction with a 315 and 11" bravado tribute rims I think

    Don't see a 315 in these... 305 or 325 on the TireRack.

    Might be a special order? 315/35/20 is listed on the site.

    How is the grip, and do they stick out a lot more or do they look like stock?
