Thanks Fincher(and toolmanjohn), I knew you were one of the only others on here who have run the DWS so your input is most welcomed.
I thought I'd for sure get the DWS06 but I want more life. I think the DWS is like a 500 rating and the Verde+ has a 640 or something, the highest out of any of the 20" tires out there. If the V+ are even better then that will really be something.
When I first got my TDI, it had the shake. I had made sure all the psi's were correct and then made sure all the lugbolts were all at 133 and the shake was gone.
I was so happy when I had the DWS put on as there was no shake from day 1. I did, however, re-torque all the bolts to 133. I never rotated in the 25,000 miles now and I now know that the rears wear just a little quicker than the fronts but otherwise, there is no uneven wear at all. I also tow so that wears things out a bit quicker too. Quiet, smooth, no shake and longer lasting, what is not to like?
I did think that both the LS2 and the DWS were good in snow as last winter was Snowmageddon up here and I trucked through anything and everything. We had a snow yesterday morning and the worn DWS were not that great at all, the S was missing and the W was missing out back so I knew it was not going to be the best but the Treg still got me to work.
Pirelli also has a $60 rebate going on from 03/18/2016 till 06/2016-something so that will be nice too.
