Anyone running Conti ExtremeContact DW?

the summer tire, not the all-season DWS which has some good feedback here.

How is the steering and handling compare to what was on your car before?

I'm especially interested in how light-weight they are. Did you notice it when you moved off the heavy RFTs.

How's the tire wear? I've run Contact 2s before, and thought that they didn't live up to their 280 wear rating.

Thanks for the feedback. Alan.

I remember seeing at lest one member run the DW. Can't remember who though. Try a search maybe? I remember reading one review online that was pretty solid on the DW though that's a crowded space it's competing in.

I've only been running them for about 800 miles or so but so far they are great...they ride and handle really well, couldn't be happier!

You're brave, running a summer tire in Mass in the winter, even with x-drive. When I lived in Boston, I ran Blizzaks on dedicated wheels in the winter.
