This tire does not disappoint. For an all round tire, this is it and with the ExtremeContact DWS - you get what you pay for. (not the most expensive tire nor cheapest in the 205 55 16 but the best performer imho).
Spending a lot of time up in Big Bear Lake during the winters and the rest of the year in the Los Angeles area, I needed a great all round tire. If you've been up to Big Bear, you encounter weather to various degrees. Snow and ice, the tire handles nicely - dry and wet, I've never had a better tire EVER. Snow, actually is spectacular. I am a spirited driver - zoom zoom (my mazda) and driving a low budget tire just wouldn't get the job done for me. I've ran this tire for 30+ thousand miles and it's goin' like a champ. I regularly rotate my tires as called for and in return, the DWS takes care of me. Highly recommended.
