I need some new rear tires for the Evora S (2012). Can anyone recommend some good tires that won't break the bank?
That quote is the tagline TireRack puts on all summer tires. Further down is the advice specific to these:I called Conti when decided on my street set for the Elise and I wanted to be able to drive in 30 deg weather and they said to avoid the Extreme Contact Sport Here's from the link you posted..... ExtremeContact Sport is not intended to be serviced, stored nor driven in near- and below-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
I can assure you that this tire does have more traction than even the DWS at this temperature after having driven both significantly. It is not a large margin, but it is perfectly adequate. You'll also see that I live in the south, where this is not a major worry. When I lived near DC, technically also the south but oh so barely, I went with the DWS because of the temperature concern. I don't see a locale in the OP's posts, so this of course needs to be factored in.Regardless of tire's ability to roll in 30 degrees, it will have No traction below 40 degrees.
