Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Very good tire traction choice in all weather. We have steep grades with hard cornering up and down Ozark Hills in rain excellent, snow good at slower speeds and if you crawl on ice they will generally track. Rubber is softer so great traction vs. just not the longest lasting tire but worth it for safety and best value. Price is good so we run em and replace...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Truck has 230,000 miles, I have tried some tires. Rudy in TR customer service told me about the new tread design and I was willing to try it( thanks Rudy!!). These tires far surpass the older BFGoodrich design! They earned their mountain snow rating! We just had every kind of weather from dry to rain to warm to cold and icy and these bite! My confidence is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I live in the northeast and obviously deal with all types of weather conditions. For years, I always ran Bridgestone Revo's. I ran them on two Grand Cherokees and also on the 2004 Tahoe I have now. I bought the Tahoe with 50,000 miles on it and now have 200,000. By seeing the reviews here on tire rack and a garage, I decided to try the Firestone Destination....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial Long Trail T/A

These are the tires that came on the truck when I bought it new, and I will let the mileage say enough about durability. Even after multiple repairs from running over nails, screws, and a chunk of wood, these tires have lasted well. Only recently (past year) have I noticed significant deterioration in performance on wet pavement from when I first drove on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

This tire was recommended by the Tire Rack and Michelin sites for this vehicle, a 1999 MB CL500 coupe with 110,000 miles in exceptional condition, incl suspension. Tires are 100 H series (135mph max).I have owned many brands (eight by count) and buy Michelin's, due to the consistent performance, durability and quality.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

I replaced a full set of Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S's with these vastly superior tires after only 24,000 miles on those tires, when they developed bubbles in the sidewalls. I have nothing detrimental to say regarding the Pilot Sport A/S Pluses. They performed well in dry, wet, tropical downpour and winter Nor'easter conditions. In the very few times I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

What a significant improvement over ANY all season tires on ice, light and heavy snow!My 3 month old Dunlop SP sport 5000 tires were rated with the best snow and ice traction among all other all season tires in the latest consumers report survey, but the car can't even stop without sliding out of control when I reach intersections on slight icy conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

When people write reviews they seldom say what the vehicle is. So how true or accurate is their review? Here's my review.I drive a 2011 Kia Sportage. I'm an aggressive driver especially when driving from Washington to California and to Nevada. I really enjoy the winding roads in the mountain passes. These tires take a set when going into corners at speed and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires for about a year now and they have worn wonderfully thus far. The dry performance is fantastic, and wet performance is nearly as good. The only factor playing into the performance of the tire negatively would be the fact that I drive a small car. The Toyota Corolla is very light and easily manipulated by weather factors, however the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I had Continentals on the car recently and loved everything but the handling. I have to admit I like to push roundabouts & off ramps faster than the recommended speeds, but there again, that is my preference. The tires were quiet, comfortable & great in poor weather, but under heavy steering, I lost confidence in the car's feeling of stability. These Good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

First set of Pirelli's ever purchased, bought mainly for good noise level and ride comfort reviews, plus price and rebate. Just completed 1,500 road trip from Bay Area to Seattle and tires were great, noise definitely reduced and ride was very comfortable and stable. All dry weather driving. Will be updating over the life of tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

The OEM tire on our Equinox. They are great! Why can't all new cars come with good tires like these??? The car before this one came with trash Goodyears ('13 Spark), and my truck I just got has even worse tires, also Goodyears ('15 Ram 1500). 14k miles and they still look brand new. This is great as we put a lot of miles on our vehicles. They might not start...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 2

A surprisingly excellent performance tire that maintains a decent ride while being fairly quiet until near end of tread life. The tire then shows its dry weather performance oriented drawbacks. It does last me a respectable 25k miles on average(this is my 5th set). They are a perfect match for the M5 or any similar performance / luxury vehicle. It guess the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Please note: I purchased these tires from Tire-Rack in June of 2014 and elected to not rate them until now. There is no way a tire can be fully evaluated in 2 weeks as you see on some reviews. I now have 8200 miles on these tires and I can fully state that I am very please with all aspects of there performance. Mostly dry weather conditions, but we did have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

My car is a daily driver that has been modified to resemble a MX-5 Cup car in handling and performance. I am an HPDE instructor, and my car is on the track about one weekend a month, ususally at Motorsport Ranch in Cresson, Texas or Texas World Speedway in College Station, Texas. I replaced a worn out set of Rivals with the RE-71Rs two days before a private...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I got my original set of PureContacts nearly three years ago and just purchased a new set as they are an excellent value for any model year Honda Accord. Here is a summary of my findings:- Despite having 50,000 miles of combined city and highway miles, the tries still maintained excellent grip in both wet and snowy weather. The tires maintain their grip over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I'm gonna keep it short. I made 57K on these tires and I can't say anything bad. I live in Illinois so the weather here is unpredictable sometimes. I was surprised how well this tire performed in snow (All 4 wheel driving mode)The treadwear is 300 low but it helps out in winter. If you're more on the racing side this tire will wear out a lot quicker. Im not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3 (Version 2)

I had a set of these shaved to 6/32. I had a great weekend at Putnam Park in my '06 Cayman S. The weather on two days was pretty hot and I really went at it. The tires were terrific. Wear was pretty good. I didn't rotate mine all weekend. The left front was blistered at the end, but it really took some hard use. I have -2.5 camber on the front. Could have...  Read More
