update. I got the DWS tires on for over 1k miles now. I asked BMW to fill them up to the higher recommended psi (for high speed driving) with nitro.

The DWS is much quieter, feels more comfortable on wet condition, and it feels lighter compared to the stock RFTs. The side walls are not as stiff, but close enough with higher psi. Once the KW are installed, it will balance out the slightly softer tires.

So far, we haven't receive any net new snow so we'll see how they do on snow.
