As I mentioned before the Continental DWS all season have great winter tread. But even the manufacturer mentions only "light" snow.
The ExtremeContact DWS features Tuned Performance Indicators visible letters molded into the second rib from the outboard shoulder to alert drivers of the tire's performance levels. A visible "DWS" indicates the tire has sufficient tread depth for dry conditions, as well as wet roads and light snow. After the "S" has worn away, the remaining "DW" indicates the tire only has sufficient tread depth for dry and most wet road conditions. And after the "W" and "S" have both worn away, the remaining "D" indicates the tire has appropriate tread depth for dry conditions only.
They also come with a 50,000 warranty. They are top rated in tire rack surveys.
