Add that to the fact that I waited 5 months for tire rack to try to get a set in for my MDX that I finally just gave up and went with the Yoko ENVigors instead. They've now been on backorder for 9 months in a 255/55/18 size, good job Continental, glad I didn't wait.
well it all comes down to what are you willing to compromise on. for me the slower steering response wasn't a big deal but the overall all season performance of the DWS' was. I get my lead out on the track so I don't need razor sharp responses for daily driving. everyone has a different set of requirements so if you have found your perfect compromise then all the best to you
