    I like my Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 better than my prior Conti DWS-06. Just a smoother, quieter, grippier tire in all conditions.

    I'm reaching the end of my DWS-06 try, and will be going back to the Pilot Sport A/S 3+ next (had the A/S 3+ for the prior several tire changes). The DWS-06 worked well, and still work well near their end. But at least the set I got, they are noisy as hell. Noticed it from the moment I left the tire place. And they've been that way their entire life. I never got to try them in any significant snow pack to compare to the A/S 3+. The A/S 3+ worked great in all the snow/slush/wet I had to run through. They drove up the hills to and in my subdivision when even some trucks were leaving themselves at the bottom of the main hill.

    I have no input to offer regarding snow but the AS3 Plus should be a longer wearing tire than the AS3 (not plus). The Plus version came out after but for some inexplicble reason Michelin still sells the non-plus as a 45k mile warranty tire even though it often wears at half those miles. The AS3 Plus should be more on par with the 45k mile warranty.

    My 2010 Avant came with Goodyear A/S very good loved the way it drove. German made tires and didn';t want to risk buying Goodyears since I have never had good luck with them. Put a set of Conti DWS didn't like the way it drove. A little squishy in the turns and would seem to flat spot when It sat for a few days. Took 30min of highway driving to smooth out. Replaced with Pilot Super Sports. Great tire drove great. nice grip great in rain. I live in South Florida so cant comment on snow performance, but they are a summer performance tire so I wouldn't expect anyone to run them in winter. So happy with them I installed a second set.
    Purchaed a 2011 Avant S-Line with sport suspension and 19"s Had Dunlops on it when I got it. very stiff and harsh riding tire. which would be OK if it had super grip but it didn't. found a bulge in a side wall shortly after purchasing the car so I replaced them with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S Very happy with this tire and will be purchased again

    +1 for the A/S 3+
    I think rim size makes a difference between which mentioned tires works better.

    Conti are better in 19in+ rims

    X 2...ran Conti's in both Extreme Contact DWS and DWS-06 variants for several years and didn't like the fact that they got noisy not even half way through their life.

    On a whim I went with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ this time, 6k miles on them and I'm thoroughly impressed.

    My Conti extreme contact dws tires are great on 19" wheels. Haven't used the in the winter though, but so far in the rain (which we've been getting non-stop for the last 3 months) they handle great.
