Top 3 Continental ExtremeContact DW Reviews

Given 70% while driving a SEAT Leon Cupra (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 100 average miles
Not the best for sport cars like Golf GTI, the handling is terrible, feels like having softer suspension, grip on the other hand is great for fast acceleration..

Given 51% while driving a Ford Focus (205/55 R16) on mostly motorways for 20 spirited miles
Upside: the grip is outstanding. Both dry and wet. Downside: 1- Sidewalls are weak. Hit a pothole and you'll need a new tyre. 2- Sidewalls are extra soft. Feels like you have a way softer suspension. Not a good feeling for sporty tyres. I used to inflate a few psi over to get the handling ok. 3- wear very fast. 20k km on the rear axle of an fwd and it was on twi. Conclusion: you get a fair amount of grip, but the subjective handling is shit. And very low km/$. Wouldn't recommend.

I think this is not a winter tyre, I believe this is a summer tyre. I feel very confident driving the car with DW. Very grippy.
