Now, I'm looking at the remaining three tires. All have wear bar visibility. I think it's time to upgrade.

Should I stick with the Eagle RS-A? If not, my local dealer can do $700 OTD for 4x ContiExtreme Contact DWS, including install, mount, balance, warranty, and lifetime rotate and balance.

$700 doesn't seem like too bad a deal for me. What do you guys think?
The RS-A is a middle-of-the -road All Season tire, comes as OEM on many mid-priced sedans (Audi A4, etc.). IMHO, the Conti DWS would be a better choice.
