Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

This is an excellent all-around tire for winter driving conditions in the Twin Cities. The tires perform equally well on wet freeways and on snow packed neighborhood streets. Braking action is excellent.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

This is my 2nd set for the Latitude Tour HP. I upgraded the size, and have never looked back. They have been super on 3 of ice snow combo popular in the Mid Atalntic area. Wet traction has been superior. Dry braking is excellent, Road noise is so far reduced from the OF tire that I thought they were underinflated.Life has been 50K+ with a combo of Hwy and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Purchased this tire for my daughters car, which also carries my grandson. Her main stipulation in a tire was good snow traction. In our recent heavy snow in Salt Lake, she said these tires were great! She was able to drive in neighborhoods with heavy snow, up and down hill, and she said the tires held traction when accelerating and braking. Do not have an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I am simply amazed by the abilities of an old, light, rear wheel drive car (without a limited slip differential!) when paired with these tires. Not only is starting traction no longer an issue, the braking and skid resistance abilities of this tire seem to defy physics. I was able to *back up* a driveway steep enough that it was difficult to walk up without...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

I'm Bummed - bought a set of these 45K miles ago and have enjoyed excellent service from them and now, after picking up some debris and making a slow leak in the shoulder (non-repairable) of one tire, I need a new one and Continental is discontinuing them. These tires are excellent - good responsiveness, great traction, solid braking, quiet, and most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position that replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 on my Acura TSX. The Michelins had poor dry traction as the tires aged and were just ok in snow. The Bridgestones were excellent in all aspects except the winter season. They were terrible on ice or light/heavy snow, to the point that I needed to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is a high quality snow tire that makes winters in a rear wheel drive car more comfortable. I haven't put enough miles on the tires to be a great judge of durability, and I've only driven through one significant snow event and the slushy aftermath that followed for the next few days. Although grip is improved, the traction control still activates when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

After driving for 5 years on Yokohama YK580's, I finally looked into a different tire. I did not realize what a difference a tire could make. With the Yokohama's, this vehicle slips and slides, the traction control barely worked. After having these Blizzaks installed, my vehicle was a totally different animal. I am an aggressive driver, and these tires make...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm tellin' you, these tires have made all the difference in winter performance of my '15 Subaru. It came w Goodyear Assurance All Season's and I'm very disappointed in Subaru for shipping a car to New England with these tires. Take 'em off and put these General's on! I can't get enough about how amazing this car now just cuts through the snow. The handling,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

Best tire for the price issued for my vehicle. Depending on the treadwear of this specific tire I will most likely purchase them again as there is no compromise in performance handling, braking or acceleration.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

These tires are awesome! I'm driving a 97 4Runner. It had Yokohama Geolanders. Bought the truck used with the Yoko's. I liked those tires and was going to replace with the same until I read the reviews on the LE2.The roads have been awful between Chicago and SW Michigan. Snow, ice, slush, smooth and everything in between. I noticed my old tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

I recently purchased a full set of Hankook Dynapro HP2 tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler's on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in 20 P235/55R20. The OEM tires lasted about 30,000 miles with regular rotation ever 7,500 miles. I was a little skeptical about the Dynapro HP2 but have to say, after driving them in the dry, rain and in some light New...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 N-Spec

I was convinced to buy these when I called Tire Rack and had a sales specialist (Theo) sharing his experience and other using these Miichelin winter tires. I had a bad experience in Winter with this brand and was a fan of Blizzak for our very cold and snowy canadian winter. i drive a lot , in every condition and I actually love driving in the worst of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Drove my AWD Acadia for 3 winters without snows and always managed. Bought snows this year for several planned winter trips. Far surpass my expectations on snow and ice. Traction is amazing for braking, acceleration, cornering. Holds steady for lane changes in deep/slushy storm conditions. Noisier than all season tires but not objectionable. Wish I had them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

AWESOME! No kidding it drives like a 4 wheel drive Prius! Went on roads I would not have dreamed of and could not have gone on otherwise. The tires give great confidence in the control and braking of the car on snow. I was able to follow the 4wheel drives around the city on off beaten paths in two inches of snow today. I have not been able to do that in this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

So far the best tires I have ever owned. They hold the road in dry and wet conditions without sweating. I am a spririted driver to put it mildly. With these tires I dont need to slow down in the rain unless there is a lot f traffic on road. No issues with braking. No complaints in light snow. Great all round tires. Surpassing my expectations so far. Highly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I live in Southeast PA, and my 3 season tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s (which I've also reviewed). I purchased the Sottozero 3 for below freezing driving months, frequently harsh winters, and to retain the sporty driving characteristics of my car when road road conditions are good. It's not easy to find a winter tire that is good in many road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

A great snow tire that I have driven in all conditions: torrential rain, slush, freezing rain, hard pack and deep snow. With my four wheel drive Outback, acceleration and braking behavior was like I was on dry pavement. The ride is smooth and quiet. I have owned Blizzaks that were noisy and performance dropped off after some wear. Bottom line: these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The absolute best tire out, period! Vehicle has 18's and H&R suspension: These tires feel planted on the road almost like I'm on train tracks. Handling/braking is excellent (stiff outer shoulder). Comfortable tire when new. Only problem is they're not suited for a daily driver unless you do not mind buying these every 5-6 months- Tread wear count seems lower...  Read More
