So I was a bit late for work and go fig...we got a flood going on. It is very flat where I live...so it does not take long for water to accumulate. This was the first time my Pri had been in a heavy rain. Well, I threw my mpg thoughts out the window on the interstate and was impressed with the DWS tires. They did not flinch at all even in some standing water. No loss of grip. I was one of the fastest cars on the interstate...comfortably I might add. Big thumbs up to Continental ! :rockon: Lastly, I was surprised with how clean my car was when I got to work...I am use to my truck throwing water and dirt nearly everywhere. Nice!
