Interesting comparisons and some good insights. I currently run the Conti DWS 215R45-17's on my 06 MX5 and am impressed with their performance for an all season tire. The only complain I have is cornering is not as solid and does require some steering and throttle attention similar to the Toyo Proxes. For the number of days I have to deal with snow I probably would have been more satisfied with the Conitinental DWs.....next time. thanks.

Perhaps someday GRMS would consider throwing a set or two of directional summer tires on backwards and publishing the results wet and dry. I do that in the dry months to even out wear and would like to know just how bad of an idea it is. Or maybe its not a bad idea at all? I do know it allows me to wear a set of tires evenly for cheap. I bet the Conties would not care much at all, the others certainly would in the wet, but how much?

Thanks-
