I saw some of your preliminary reviews on them but now you have had them for at least a month - what do you think?<p>Sidewall any stiffer than the extremecontacts?<p>thanks,

Re: Jim - how do you like the Conti DWS? (Bender)

So far, so good<br>Remember I'm running OEM 16s on this one, 205/55/16<br>I had an alignment issue (it was pulling to the right after two alignments so we swapped front tires side to side and it essentially went away.<br>I need to do a final toe and camber tweak later on (1000 miles) but generally it's pretty good now.<p>I like the ride, a lot. I like the grip, (but I haven't had it in rain yet).<br>They're a very different feel than the old extremes, better turn in and they still ride nicely, quiet so far, etc.<br>I only have about 200 miles on them so if you want to ask me in a month when they're completely "broken in" please do.

Thanks very much!<p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Turn in was specifically where I was hoping there would be an improvement. <p>It might end up being drastically different on a 235/45/17 as well.<p>I appreciate it.

I also have them, they have been on for about 500 miles now (18"), I like them as well so far, also no chance to drive in the rain yet. <p>I did hit somethign already though and put a small cut in in of the sidewalls and scratched a peg <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Never realized I hit anything, just noticed the tire was gouged an bit. <p>I now wish I had gotten the tire rack road hazard warranty <br>

Paul: Didn't you just get new tires...? Or are you getting a new set of wheels and need tires for them?
