Expert Review

It isn't often that any tire manages to match the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 in terms of being a whole package, but the Continental ExtremeContact DW comes very close. This is a tire that combines refined road manners with high-end traction and handling characteristics in both dry and wet weather. Although not quite as crisp as the Pilot Sport PS2, the grip is still there when you need it.

The tread design incorporates indicators in the form of D and W letters molded into the shoulder blocks. When the W wears away, this is the tire's way of alerting the driver it’s no longer suitable for use in wet conditions. A treadwear rating of 340 paired with a smooth and quiet ride makes this tire ideal for everyday driving. Consider as well that this is a much more affordable tire than the Pilot Sport PS2, and this may be a better choice for many drivers looking for a decent summer tire.Rating: 4.75/5
