Drove the car for the fist time in the snow last night. These tires have teeth! Extremely impressed with them!
Went with 245/45/18 on 18 in wheels for the snows.
Car has 19 inch touring package and car had new Conti Extreme Contact DSW on it when bought used last year.
I have the Conti DSW on other vehicles and found them to be very quiet, good in rain, but they are NOT a snow tire!
The Michelin Ice Xi3 are even quieter than the Conti DSW.
