reviews they mention that the sidewalls are too soft causing steering response being slower.
Any comments from some of you that already had them for a while?
Agree with ndabunka Learned everything about the Conti DWS at xbimmers forum. Drove the OEM RFT for about 250 miles then changed to Conti DWS. I know it was only 250 miles, but wife likes the Conti DWS better than the Bridgestone (after 1500 miles). I read most of the reviews about the 20" OEM RFT and decided to order the X5 with a spare tire. As for the Tire Rack reviews for the Conti DWS, most of the reviews are for sedans. I didn't have much options for the 20" and Conti was the only tire maufacturer that have the 60-day customer satisfaction trial and 1 year Road Hazard Warranty. As for the OEM RFT, I'll put them back on 6 months before lease end.
If you decide to purchase Conti DWS, purchase from Sam's Club. For $15 per tire, you get install/balance/flat fix/additional road hazard warranty/tire rotation if all 4 are square for as long as you are a member. Or until the tire warranty runs out.
