New Tires

A while back I ordered a set of Cont DWS tires from Tire Trends in BC. Yesterday I took them to the dealer and had them installed, balanced and an alignment. Wow...they are great. Quiet with good grip. I know there's better, i.e. Pilots, but for less than $800 delivered, I'm impressed. I had Federal SS 595's (cheapies) on the car from the previous owner. I thought they were ok, but these are great. Also the alignment was a bit off from spec so the car should be much more responsive.

Mine are quite a bit smaller: 255-40-17 & 235-45-17.
Did you drive with those Conti's over the winter ?? Any issues if you did ? This will be my 1st winter driving the car so I'm curios on how the handle in -30 lol.
