I have Continentals on my GTI and I love them. Not DWS tires, but a version of them from Discount Tire. Pretty quiet and they do great in the rain. I've had them for almost a year and a half and I've been really really happy with them.
Thanks for the input, i'm going to go up to tire discounters today, we usually order from tire rack but in this case we need to get some put on asap so we are going to do their credit card with 6 months zero interest.
My husband went from a Mustang to a Tiguan when our daughter was born and he still drives the Tiguan as if it's a Mustang. His father's day gift was a new set of tires; Pirelli high performance tires, of course; for the guy who doesn't realize his SUV is not a sports car!
My local tirediscounters had a crazy good deal on pirelli p7's that were in stock and got me in the same day late afternoon. Worked out really well! So far they are extremely quiet and grip well...only time will tell but so far loving it! Thanks again guys!
