Am i the only one that experienced the flat spotting with DWS tires? no one else seems to be complaining about that. But yes, i hated the fact that my steering was so pretty shot once i put them on. I remember reading a statement about these tires that i can totally relate to.

" Every corner was a new adventure "

I really didnt feel confident driving fast with the DWS. But i will put them back on because its what i got for now, and its the best tire for the season besides getting dedicated snows. Last winter was a fluke. i think we had 1 day with like 2 inches of snow. I kept the tires on for months thinking mother nature had plans on being a bitch. I have to say that it was comforting to know that i could just leave the all seasons on no matter the temperature until i felt safe enough to put the summers back on.

I totally forgot about that joy with those things. I'd have to drive the Miata at least a few miles every morning
before the incessant out-of-round vibration dissipated. This malady is also well-noted on the Tirerack reviews
of these wonderful pieces of...rubber.

Exactly and ditto.
