Some of you guys are confused as to what these tires are designed to do.
Yes, we are well aware of what they are. They are softer than ANY other all-season tire in its class. In fact they are softer than many many all seasons in lower performance classes.
We are comparing apples to apples.
Kumho 4X, at least 3 Bridgestones (Grids and RE960 and RE92s), Falken 512s, the newer 900 series, Dunlop SPs, GForce A/S, P-Zero ...(these are just about the only one's I've tried)
ALL handle better than the DWS, albeit at the expense of comfort and snow traction.

Yes, but there are countless other cheaper tires that perform better in the dry as well. Or at least feel better.
Again, I run DWSs on my DD. I like them for what they are (comfortable, quiet and good in snow)
But they CLEARLY give up a good bit of handling performance for the tradeoff.
