    Mercedes Benz (245/35 R19) on mostly motorways for 6,500 average miles
    It was officially imported in Japan a few years ago. Driving noise may be slightly louder than Pirelli pzero. Demonstrates a stable grip from low speeds to high speeds in fine weather. It was stable even when driving on the Fuji Speedway. This is the first tire that keeps hydroplaning away in the rain.

    Much quieter and more comfortable than the P0 Pirelli tires they replaced. The A6 Audi is a touring car for me, often in wet Seattle weather. No hydroplaning ever even at speed. Excellent stability and braking gives great confidence.

    Given 90% while driving a Honda Accord (245/45 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 spirited miles
    Previously had a set of BFG Sport comp tires which handle fantastic in the dry, okay in the wet. They wore out after two years and made a racket when they got near the end of their life. To compare to BFGs the DWS06 does everything very well, there was a noticeable change in the responsiveness and overall dry handling isn't as sharp. However wet handling is superb and after a similar driving period of two years they hardly look worn, the W is still clearly visible. They're comfortable for most road conditions and I wouldn't consider them a loud tire, however again this was after the excessively loud BFGs. This was my first time buying a high performance all season tire, and so far have been pleasantly surprised.

    Excellent all season tire. Lasted for 40 k Kms (UTQG 560) on my e60 535d (rear). OK grip in snow (first 20 k kms), excellent in dry and wet. Very impressed. Too bad Continental doesn’t offer DWS06 in the European market.

    Great tire for our Volvo S60 AWD T6. No real need for a winter tire in Toronto.

    I gave the tires a middle of the road rating for wear as they are new on my car and can't give them high or low marks.
    These tires are ridiculously noisy. To the point that the hum can be felt through the steering wheel. So far, they also seem to adversely affect fuel mileage. Down 2 MPG compared to the Pirellis that came off.
