    C&D Aug-2017: Gumshoes: Five Sticky Summer Performance Tires Tested

    This is in the August 2017 print issue of Car & Driver:

    http://www.caranddriver.com/features...e-test-feature

    The new Continental ExtremeContact Sport (which replaces the now-NLA Conti DW) did very well, placing second behind the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S, with the Conti having a noticeable advantage in the wet.

    Shame that none of these are available in 225-55-16 size for stock E500E wheels. For that matter, no major name-brand mfr offers "summer" performance tires in that size; only all-season tires. Conti DW was the last I knew of and it went the way of the dodo early this year.

    Thanks Dave! A quick check of prices and it seems that the ExtremeContact Sports are more expensive than the DW used to be...
