Conti ExtremeContact DWS’s?

Anyone on here running Continental Extreme DWS’s on their treg? I’ve loved them on my Volvo and just had the dealer I’m getting my new to me ‘14 TDI install a set, assuming I’ll like them as much on the VW. I like the softer sidewalls they have, as it adds a bit of impact cushion and they’re fantastic in the wet and even snow for at least the first couple of seasons. But with the heavier weight of the treg, I’m a bit worried they’ll maybe feel too soft.

Do they make them with the right weight rating? I would be all over these if they do. I had these on my Tiguan, wife's '10 A4, and now on her '12 S60. They are great tires.

In the 20”, they’ve got the XL designation, and show up in Tire Rack as one of just a few tires that work on the treg. I’ll know by week’s end how they work and will report back my thoughts.

...damn, I have 19s and want to stick with that size. I need the side wall for when I go to the beach.

T2s came with DWS’ from the factory, if I’m not mistaken. And, they’re a fantastic tire on the Touareg. But, if you plan on doing a good number of miles aired down it will beat the snot out of them.

I was doing 200-300 miles a year aired down on DWS’, and I was replacing tires once a year. Being aired down to 17/18 psi was destroying the shoulder of the tire.

I think I do way less than 100 miles a year aired down. Island Beach State Park in New Jersey has air facilities on the way out of the park so its super easy to get back up to normal.

More sidewall to let the contact patch of the tire be wider when aired down. [edit] aired down can be as low as 12 psi depending on the sand conditions that day.

Why not just put higher profile tires on?
