I ran these on one of my other cars. Good grip. Good in the wet. Low noise and excellent tire wear. I think you will like them.

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. The OEM Bridgestones have been okay but loud and definitely not very friendly on the wear. They almost remind me of the OEM Pirelli's I had on the M3.
Still waiting on Discount Tire to get the Conti's in, ordered them last Saturday. The rears are in but waiting on the Fronts. Next time I'll order them through Tirerack and get them quicker.

Did you get the DWS Continentals installed yet? If so, please share your comments and feedback. Thanks.

I had the Conti's installed two weeks ago. The ride is much improved over the run flats. It is noticeably quieter inside the truck. I've had a few days of torrential rain and they handled extremely well. One morning with temps in the low 40's and the tires did well.
Overall you can feel a little push when cornering extremely fast, not as hard of a sidewall as the run flats.
I would recommend the tires to anyone looking to ditch the run flats.

We ran the 20" DWS on the 2013 X5 and loved them. Great ride. Quiet. Long life. Excellent handling and good wet road manners. We ordered a replacement set and traded the X5 before mounting them. The new X6M has the Bridgestone RFTs that we will run through the summer before we mount up the DWS set. Glad to see our experience matched yours.

BTW, I run the Conti DW in my C63 and they're a great summer tire. Don't know if they are sized for OEM X M fitment or not, but if I lived in a warm climate I'd consider that route as well.
