Continental Extremecontact DWS 225/50ZR18

I am happy to say that I have made the purchase on a set of 4 Continental Extremecontact DWS tires in 225/50ZR18. I ended up buying them through a local retailer as they happened to have 4 of them in stock. I only have about 10 miles on them since installing, but I can truthfully say that it's night and day difference between these and the Goodyear Eagle LS2 tires.

Truly, my next set will not be eagles, the noise alone is awful. Glad I have a good stereo.

I have those, but in 17's and they are great over all. The only thing I noticed was that the side walls are soft. There's a slight delay in steering response at highway speeds. But the wet traction being as good as the dry, well worth it.

Left a 421RWHP 2004 GTO, but honestly loving the G6 GT coupe!

Past Pontiacs
87' white Firebird(sold)
01' green Grand Am SE2(traded for the 03')
03' orange Grand Am SC/T(totaled)
04' blue GTO(traded for the G6)

Current Pontiacs
00' tan Montana(I swear, its the wife's)
06' black G6 GT Coupe

@ 08 WP tC ....Do you get a lot of snow over there?? I was suggested these tires by a coworker. I don't have the money for winter and summer tires....so I'm hoping these would work year round!!

Mods Added: Seat Covers, Low Beam Bulb Upgrade

Mods To Come: Window Tint, Rims, AIT Body Kit, Projector Headlights w/ HIDs, and some window stickers

I just bought the continental extreme contact DWS 225/50/17 on friday before i took a 200 mile trip to northern WI to go hunting. They are the quietest and smoothest tire I've ever owned. I would recommend these tires to anyone. GO PACK!
