Conti DWS for Snow? for M5 Daily Driver?

Hey guys...

I work from a home office... but there may be some times I get caught in a storm or need to run out while its still snow-covered roads. Nothing crazy in terms of deep snow or severe conditions... in those cases, I'll simply stay home and/or use my wife's X5.

So the question is... how do you think Conti DWS's would fare in those situations?
Would they be any worse than Blizzaks?

I have a set of wheels already with the Conti's from when I thought I was getting an xdrive 550. I am thinking I need to upgrade to Blizzaks... but do I really need to...or should I?

Your thoughts on the matter?

I've decided to just purchase the BMW winter setup for the M5.

Agree, they're all-season tires. That means they stink in both winter and summer.
