Pretty sure that the BFGoodrich G-Force Comp-2 A/S is what I picked for my dad's Miata. He wanted to be able to drive it year round & it do well in the rain. He likes them. His last set of whatevers were scary in the rain.

I have run directionals backwards once they were worn down about half way.

Running them backwards in the dry, of course, or in a light rain at moderate speeds will not be an issue. Higher speeds with more water on the road can/will cause hydroplaning.

I have Goodrich G-Force on one end of my car but haven't driven it in the rain yet and haven't really driven it hard either yet. Think I might have Falkens on the other end. I'm not sure they are designed for mileage but as much use as the Roadmaster has been getting lately they may age out first.

The Continental DWS costs $127.99
The Goodyear G-Force 2A is $113.99
So, a difference of $24. (Tire Rack prices)

The DWS does not appear to be directional but is not perfectly symetrical either.
According to the spider charts the 2A outperforms the DWS in every category. However they are very close in the test results charts, the edge is so slight it could easily be attributed to the tests being run on different days, This is test track data and does not include wear and gas mileage.

The UTQG on the DWS is 560 AA A
on the G-Force it is 400 A A

Kind of a toss up. I think I'd go with the DWS just because of the non-directional tread and being able to rotate the tires. That and the treadwear numbers. But what do you guys think?

I like the Conti, but it looks directional to me.

Tire Rack sez that the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 is not directional and that the g-Force Comp-2 A/S PLUS is directional.

I vote for the Conti.

As previously noted, Conti. They are asymmetrical but not directional as noted on google. Happy Camper!
