I have about 600 miles on these tires which I did purchase my set through a local America's Tire (Discount Tire) store in my area. These tires are replacing the factory set of PS2's which I was able to get 35k miles from. I expect more out of these new PSS.

XL = Extra Load. In any size an F owner would be interested in the Continental Extreme DW does indeed come with the XL rating. As far as steering response and grip/traction go, I can only go from my own experiences and say (in my plus size installation) and say that the DW is superior to the PS2 in these categories as well as in handling.

The PSS is superior to the previous PS2 and the PSS is far superior to the DW. See here:
