Why not the Conti DWS on the Q60???audtatious wrote: ↑Sat Oct 13, 2018 9:57 pmMy '14 Q50s and my '17 Q60RS both came with the Dunlop run flats and I highly dislike them. Sure, they do relatively OK on wet and dry roads but from a reliability perspective and handling they suck. I blew one on my Q50 within the first few months of ownership and 2 of the others had side bubbles. They were replaced quickly with ContiExtreme DWS06 and I've never looked back.
My '17 Q60RS had the same tires and while I didn't have a blowout nor side bubbles they handled quite poorly. It was easy to get the car to slide sideways, you could feel how hard the sidewalls were, and they seemed to tramline the roadway horribly. Just replaced them with some Pilot Sport PS4S's and it's remarkable how well the vehicle handles now.
Hopefully the Potenza's are not as bad.
I always regretted putting the DWS on the 04 RWD coupe instead of the S-Drives that were on it.....was thinking I MIGHT drive it in the little snow we got, but never did. I thought the DWS on the 13 G37X was a good compromise and it did well in the snow and OK when I pushed it a bit on the back roads. The Q60 is my wife's so I wanted an A/S so that's why the DWS. I'm driving the 4Runner now and the crappy Duellers only saw a few miles before replacing with Michelin Defenders.
I have a spare with the Q50 but not my Q60. Probably get one for it at some point as well.Wooddragon wrote: ↑Fri Mar 22, 2019 5:54 amReplaced my run flats with the Mich Pilot Sport 4S, the car is much better, better braking, acceleration, handling. They also provide a smoother ride. A huge improvement in every aspect. Bought a portable air compressor from Amazon for 50 bucks and a bottle of fix a flat just in case I ever pick up a puncture
