I drove with DWS's on 2 different vehicles, and IS250 awd and an IS350. I had the tires on both vehicles for 2 years of driving 30k a year. Overall the tires hold up well and offer overall decent performance in dry conditions and snow. The pros are their longevity, easily lasting to 50-60k. The downside is that they offer only decent performance in all driving conditions. They are not particularly good at anything. They are worst however in wet conditions and tend to slide easily in aggressive driving conditions when wet. They are best within the first 6 months and their performance in each condition noticeably drops after that. They are overall very quiet and never appear to get louder through time.
I thought about getting DWS's again for my CT but chose to go with Nitto Motivo's instead. So far I like them alittle more than the DWS's primarily due to their look and all around performance. They are not low rolling resistant tires like the DWS's but I went a step wider on stock wheels are barely notice a drop, seems to be about .5-1 mpg all around. Their dry performance is significantly better than the DWS's and wet appears to be only slightly better. I haven't tested them in the snow yet since I've only been on them for under 3 months. On my IS350 rwd the DWS's did well in Chicago winters. If the Motivo's offer equal performance in winter conditions I would recommend them to anyone over the DWS's. Not to mention the Motivo's offer a 60k warranty vs. the DWS's which have a 50k.
