Interesting point. After installing sways I noticed that my current DWS's have a decent amount of sidewall flex. Any suggestions toward a different set?
My thing is I don't trust all seasons in snow. DWS might be the exception, but I've never found an A/S tire that is really good in snow. All are far from a compromise.

I think mine are at 40psi. could be 37, I'll have to check some day and see what the side wall looks like at the different pressures.

One day back in early Dec while on a chair lift and ski buddy said the new snowtires and his Audi S7 felt like the sidewall flexed to much. I told him the increase the air pressure by 5psi. Next weekend he said that worked great.


rob-2, I also like the DWS's so I don't have to run the snows to long. Took the snows off the wagon last week.
How does the tread wear? This normally promotes center wear

Many people complain about soft snow tires, but it's rarely the side wall, it's almost always the high tread flexing.
