    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.

    I had Conti DWS's on my G37x, and I found them to be a better winter tire than a summer tire. Most places have them classified as a high performance tire, but I wouldn't considered them any type of a performance tire ! However, they did seem to wear fairly well...I put about 25K on them and they still looked decent. Since I have Michelin X-Ice 3's for the winter, I might just give the Nitto's a try until the snow gets here.

    Had my 64,000km (40,0000 mi) service done back in July and the service report says my tires still have 6/32" or more tread on all 4. Mind you I've used winter tires. Also, my brake pads still had 7mm left on the front and 8mm left on the rears.

    I'm approaching 60K and still going.I do have new ones sitting in garage waiting. I can't believe someone already has 90K on a ct.

    I just did my 55k service and have 6/32 left on all 4 tires. These tires last forever! I will probably change them at 70k.

    I have about 23,000 miles on my OEM Michelin tires. I have just recently noticed that the noise level has increased substantially. The tread seems to be fine, but now that I noticed the noise it is driving me crazy!

    Has anyone else noticed a whine like a baby monster truck?

    Maybe one of your wheels is out of balance?

    It doesn't shake or shimmy, it just makes noise, but I will have it checked.
