FWIW, I have had the Conti Extreme Contact DW tires for about 2 months/2,500 miles. No complaints at all. I am in MA, so the tires have seen temp changes from high 40s to 90s, dry surfaces and t-storms. My driving is street only, sometimes with spirit but not necessarily with lunacy. I am just accumulating reference points as I rack up miles (65/day commuting).

I know a lot of local BMWCCA members here in Houston who spend a lot of time on the track seem to all like the Bridgestone RE11's. Most are running them now.

I have them on my car now and they seem to be preforming well. They seem to ride better than the PSII's, but I have no personal track experiences to compare.

I couldn't find the thread we were directly talking about the DW's, but I had my car on a lift this morning for the subframe check, and I noticed the rears are nearly spanked. :eek

So I'll probably get 8-9000 miles out of a set of DW rears. The fronts look pretty good still. But that's pretty bad mileage, though my first set of "ultra performance summer tires".

Good tread...I mean thread. I've been running PS2's on the street on my dd '03 coupe. The Falkens are definitely more in line price wise. I'm gonna give em a try!

I'm running the Hancooks right now right now. They are pretty quiet, grip VERY well, but ultimately they feel "soft" compared to my previous PS2's and GY F1 Asymetrics.

ahhhh NO. The PS2 is on top since it's the benchmark. That's what they're comparing too and Dunlop comes closest in other words.

I'm running PS2's right now and they are fantastic! I'm also running Hankook V12's on my wife's Volvo S40R. They preform fantastic for her car's abilities. You really can't go wrong with either tire IMO.

Another thumbs up for the Hankook V12's. They are as good as everyone says. The only reason to pay up would be to save weight. I am going to track my car for the first time in 2 weeks, so I'll report back with track performance!
