  3. Conti DWS's lack dry grip?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I just got these tires yesterday to replace my Potenza RE960's and I'm breaking the tires loose on acceleration, especially when turning a corner, where the 960's didn't, or did much less. Is this the way they are? Does anyone else here have them? Once I remember getting new tires a long time...

  6. Removing front sway for more grip makes perfect sense...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    To those who are aprehensive about removing the front sway bar per Rusty's threads, remember that most automakers only use the sway bars for final tuning, not for the dominant characteristics of balance. As has been mentioned, the automaker is going to err on nice, safe handling for the...
  7. Goodyear Ultra Grip GW3 or Nokian WR?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I was all set to go get some Nokian WRs this morning but then I saw the Nov '06 CR test results for performance winter tires yesterday. They only rated the WRs at #5 and gave top honors to the Goodyear Ultra Grip GW3. Both are H-rated and have essentially equal test ratings across the board but...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all, Don't have the leather steering wheel, got the one that came with the cloth package. Owned my Passat for 2.5 years. Noticed that the steering wheel isn't as grippy as it was when new. How to get it back to grippy? Randy
  9. Goodyear ultra grip hp: discount tire or performance?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Hey all, I got a shot at a set of these snows but can't seem to find any good research, I thought I saw these on a cop car and am thinking they might be aggressive enough for me? But all I find is some Goodyear discount tire info? Anyone out there have an opinion? I got to decide tonight. Thanks, A
