I disagree, I have had 235-40-18's on for about 6k miles. I had pirelli p-zero 215-45's on before and the continental tires are extremely quiet and still have good traction (although being an ms6 with awd makes it hard to tell) They also work well in the snow and rain. I would highly recommend these for all-season tires. plus I think they're 45,000 mile tires which is a must for me since I put on about 3k miles a month or more.

That's the first negative comment I've heard about DWS tires....

You're comparing SUMMER TIRES vs ALL SEASONS. All seasons will always feel softer than summer tires. For All Season tires the DWS are great tires as are the P Zero's

I have the same problem with my DWS. They have very soft sidewalls and you can really feel it when you initiate a turn. However I understand they are all seasons so it doesn't bother me.
I was able to cut a 2.1 60' on them though so grip is actually pretty good...
Mine are the 215/45/18 and I have them slightly stretched to fit my 8" wide rims.

If you wanted similar, you should've gotten the DW, not DWS

P-Zero Nero A/S's are complete shit. I had them on my MS3 before I went to Hankook V12's, and the P-Zero's were crap in the dry, shit in the rain, and crappy shit in the snow. All-season tires will always be a compromise compared to dedicated summer and winter tires.

OP, if you JUST replaced the tires (as in today, or within the last couple hundred miles), then you haven't worn off the releasing agent on the tires yet. Go easy on them for a couple hundred miles, then give 'em hell.

I have them on my evo in a 40 sidewall. If you pumb up the psi to 40-45 they handle great but now that I have put about 6k miles on them my handling have gone completely out the window. No matter there cause I have a set of summer only advans for my real rims and the DWS were just to get through the Winter.

What kind of idiot expects all season tires to feel as good or better then summer tires.

Oh yeah, the OP.

There seems to be quite a bit of confusion from people regarding the DW's, and DWS's.

DW = Dry/Water
DWS = Dry/Water/Snow

Don't buy DWS's if you want a summer tire.

OP = Fail...

DWS are probably the best non summer tire on the market today. No one I know of has anything but good things to say about them, myself included.

The dws hold traction very well in wet or dry. I hardly break traction with bt.

The real question is who gets a 215 tire especially for grip? Winter I could understand cause a skinnier tire handles better in snow but cmon guys fuckiny 215 really?

I like them a lot too. I don't do a lot of aggressive driving with them but I know when its wet or snowing they are very good. I blow past people when I'm on the highway when its pouring. Pretty funny actually.

That's the correct tire size for the stock rim.
