I'm feeling the same thing with the DWS06. Steering response is so slow and fighting the wheel every time you are in a corner or want to make a quick maneuver makes me hate driving my car. And that sucks. Going to get 4 wheel alignment and suspension components checked out. If they still do it, they are going back

I just hope there is not much drop off from my runflats as I don't believe we drive the car hard enough to notice.
If it only snows twice a year I would probably get the AS3+ or Pirelli P-Zero all season plus. I went with the DSW06 for their snow handling and wet weather because it gets cold as hell here and we can get a lot of snow. But bottom line if I can't get them to turn without resistance after an alignment they are going back. The AS3 was a great dry tire and fast smooth steering response. It was good in the wet to but horrible in the snow and cold weather below 50. They also wore out fast. But if it only snows like twice a year, try them. But get the AS3+ they are supposed to be better in snow, cold and wet. Probably not or not much but who knows.

NT-05's for track on 17's, s-04's came with the 18" wheels I have now when I traded my stockers. S-04's are a close comparison to PSS and truthfully I've driven on both PSS has only a slight upper hand. Before you judge and make this a dick measuring contest anymore I have better things to do than entertain you. But again thanks for your input guys

Have fun trying to compare A/S tires to a true Summer/Winter setup. All I've said from the beginning is since you bought a $60k car why forfeit performance and ride on shitty tires?

Took DWS 06s back and got Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus in a 235/45/17 just to be safe. I should be able to run a 245/45/17 all day. I went back down to the 235 because I didn't want to deal with and problems. New tires are great and I got a 4-wheel alignment to check things out and everything seems good. I really like the tires. They are quiet and hopefully will be better in the snow than the AS 3s and also last longer. They corner well also. If I like these long term might stick with them for a while. Night and day better compared to the DWS 06s.

Got the DWS06s for the wife's E90 328i. The tires ride fine and are much quieter however I will note that I haven't pushed the car yet. But first impressions are that the tires are a nice fit for the vehicle.

Bump on the all season Tire question

My wagon has 225/45r17 fronts and 255/40r17 backs.

Came to me two years ago with some goodyear eagle F1 assymetrics. Meh...

Pretty much left well enough alone until now, because it's time for new tires.

Local BMW dealer wants to put Potenza run flats on there. I know very little, but I really just prefer to do my homework.

Are there better options out there? Better value? Better performance?

Michelin Pilot Sport as3+ it was 37f and i was surrounded by snow in Angeles Crest National forest and redlining 2nd and 3rd on straights and pulling gnarly Gs on some corners. Even that the tires didnt even make a sound and stayed true. The feedback was good and also didnt break loose when I added more throttle!

According to Tire Rack, Michelin A/S sport +3 ate the best All-season tires. The second best are the Continental DWS-06

I would highly recommend the Michelin Pilot Sport AS3's if you don't mind having a non run flat tire on your vehicle. I have these on mine currently and love them.

Are you driving with a spare Prolifice90? I’m thinking about getting the same tires on my E90. Thanks.
