Vacuumed it out after work, as I'm a car mover for a major rental company - 2014 GT with KYB's on the back, led interior lights, and looking to put some new rubber on it.....
Looking at Continental DWS.....pros/cons? Thanks.

Those Continentals are some of the best performance all seasons you can buy. Great choice.

I installed a leather wrapped steering wheel from a Elantra GT on my 03 GLS what a difference compared to OEM wheel looks so much nicer and the feel of leather .Also installed the floor shifter handle from the GT,just so you all know its the same leather floor shifter handle on the Hyundai Santa Fe.I happened to notice that when I was at the junkyard.

I actually added a leather Wheelskin wrap on top of my GT's leather wheel back in the day. I added padding underneath too. The finished product was so much nicer than the original .

Yesterday I replaced the wheel bearing. I messed up the tone ring on it when doing the parking brakes. Now it's fixed.
