BMW - New Continental Extreme DWS 06

X5 E70 (2007 - current) - Bimmerfest - BMW Forums - www.bimmerfest.com
The Dueller RF's on the front of my 2010 M Sport were over 5 years old and were down to 2 on the tire depth gauge on the outside edges. After research in the forum here I replaced them with a set of Continental Extreme DWS 06's. Quite an improvement! Much quieter, a more supple ride and tighter steering yet easier to steer in the city. On the highway very smooth with no vibrations, in part to the balancing machine and the tire tech who balanced them. Quality of the tire plays an equal part as well.

The only negative is that the tread width is an inch narrower than the old Duellers. Lost a bit of the aggressive look when viewing the vehicle from the front.

Anyway I'm really happy with them over all. The 580 tread wear number is a lot better than the Duellers 300 as well. In theory the Conti's should last longer.

Also... will need to pick up a slime kit (or equivalent) in case I pick up a nail or get a leak. No spare!
