Thanks so much Zann!I run a larger size on my Turbo S (17inch) but they are common dealer tires on new cars. I have spotted them on the 2012 Beetle as well that that Ford Transit truck posted in the other rides section (pics below). Tire opinions are like butt holes but fact of the matter is they wouldn't be on a new car at the dealership unless they rode well.
I find nothing wrong with them and they ride better than the directional sporty tread ones I had before I got them a few months ago.
I second that. I have been running DWS in 225/40/18 for two years now. Fantastic tire.If you do want to go Continental Tires I would highly recommend the Continental Extreme Contact DWS tire. It is the BEST tire that Continental Makes and has Excellent Reviews and tread wear.
