Help me choose between Continental DWS-06 and Michelin PILOT SPORT A/S 3+

Hi,
I live in Winnipeg and looking for new all season tires for my C300 . Looking for nothing in particular , just a nice comfortable ride.

I will be doing most of the driving in Summer ,but would drive about once a week in winter as well . Both tires are almost the same price from quattrotires .

Continental EXTREME CONTACT DWS-06 91W
Michelin PILOT SPORT A/S 3+ 91V

Also I am open for suggestion if there is a different tire

Thanks

tirerack ranks the PS A/S 3+ a bit higher. If you trust that ranking, then go with Michelin.

Do note there is a newer version is just out for the Michelin, it's PS A/S 4. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.js ... l+Season+4

Michelin’s latest all-season ultra-high-performance tire generation improves on past models with 4% better dry braking, 5% better wet braking and 10% more snow traction. With up to 29% more tread life than leading competitors

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Winnipeg get a lot of snow usually? Either way i would get a set of dedicated winter tires as it will be much better then the best all season tires. Then get another summer/all season tire for the summer months.

between those 2 i would go with Michelin since its the best, but you may want to go with the newest version as posted above. But I still say get dedicated winter tires.

Michelin AS3+ but also do yourself a favour and get a set of dedicated winter tires.

I have the DWS06 on one of my cars for the last 3 years. They were surprisingly pretty good during the first snowfall in the GTA. I'm switching back to dedicated winter tires this year though. Otherwise pretty happy with them other than a little bit louder road noise.
