Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I bought my 2006 Acura RL in Dallas and brought it home to Denver. The car had Michlin Pilot Performance tires.They said M&S and I couldn't wait until the first snow to see how the SH-AWD did in the snow. Our first snow was a good one and the streets in my neighborhood were snow packed and slick. The first turn the car would not even turn. I gave it some gas...  Read More

Had to quickly accelerate and one...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am an aggressive diver and wanted an aggressive snow so based on the reviews I ordered these for my AWD WRX. I was disappointed at the way they looked thinking they did not look aggressive enough. Now that I finally got to drive in some good snow I am impressed. First snowfall I drove through the snow mound left by the plow in my driveway, up my hill,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Think that aggressive all-terrain tires are 'good enough' for snow and ice? Consider this: Tested my 2015 f150 xlt against a friends 2016 f150 xlt in a huge,unused,icy parking lot. My Blizzak's and his OEM A/T tires were almost new. Both in 4WD with locking rear diff's on. Tried it with traction controls on and off. Both times I was a few truck lengths ahead...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires after reading the online reviews about this tire and I have been nothing but impressed so far. These tires are replacing a set of Bridgestone Potenza RE 970 UHP (235/45 WR 17) tires for my 05 Acura TL with the 6 speed manual transmission. I have only had them for 1,700 miles so far but they have been a noticeable improvement over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

The tires are OE with the Fusion and have been some of the better tires I've owned . Although my usual style of driving is not spirited ; the car has been driven that way in different road and weather conditions so that I would know what to expect . These tires have performed very well . My limited exposure to freezing rain and light snow ( 1 1/2 ) has been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Wonderful tire! Less than two miles from having the tires mounted, I had to hit the brakes hard to avoid an inattentive driver ahead, and stopped several feet shorter than what I anticipated. Great wet, dry handling, great cornering. Surprisingly quiet and comfortable ride for a performance oriented tire. Gas mileage: I am getting a full 10%-12% fewer mpg...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The Blizzak WS80's reinstated my confidence in the Blizzak brand. My driving is style is mostly aggressive when the confidence is there, hard accelerations and late braking. These tires provide that excellent level of confidence, they are great in 0°F to -4°F, but they truly shine when it's colder than that! We just had a Colorado low cause a dumping of up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I commute 180-190 miles per day mostly on interstate under mix of all seasonal conditions and frequent sudden turns and hard braking to avoid sudden traffic stops. I am very pleased with these tires and their performance. Wear is outstanding. I'm at 65K and can still read the snow S on tread. I've actually been considering running through another winter due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I just purchased these tires (only 2 and had them put on the front) about 3 weeks ago (late-Nov 2016). I was driving Friday night in Illinois (Just across the river from St. Louis) and we had freezing rain/drizzle beginning around 3pm. By the time I left from work @ 5pm the roads were fairly icy and traffic was going approx. 25 - 30 mph. What normally takes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

This is a great tire for the Acura MDX and a huge improvement in ride quality over the stock Bridgestones that were on there. Very surefooted in snow and acceptable braking on ice. These met my expectations for ride and low noise. Very pleased!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Granted, I've only been on these for a day now, but it feels like I'm riding on couch cushions versus the bricks that were my all seasons. Unsurprisingly, these tires rated #1 in comfort in its class on TireRack. The softer compound definitely helps with every performance aspect. Road noise is comparably minimal since my ears are accustomed to the louder...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

This tire is solid. I replaced a set of Michelin Tour HP's, saved money, and never looked back. Don't get me wrong, I'll never cheap out on tires or brakes, and use OEM parts for my MDX. But, living in Florida (and now Savannah), I can tell you that the LX 20's are a far superior tire to the OEM Michelins (which hydroplaned and were prone to dry rot). My LX...  Read More

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

The first pair of A/S tires I've had to purchase for any vehicle. Performance is great during the few dry day drive and while the roads are wet. Avoid every standing puddle at highway speeds exceeding 60mph, the tires have a tendency to pull hard to the side of the puddles and occasionally causing a brief ESP warning. The water is evacuated fairly fast, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This was the first snowstorm, and the difference from the all-season junk (original from dealer) was impressive. I'm an experienced winter driver and this is my second Prius. These tires bit into the snow like cat claws on carpet. My street never gets plowed in the morning, but these tires pushed right through with no sliding, no fishtailing. Able to stop at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Changed from 18 wheels and Dunlop run flat tires to 16 wheels and non-run flats for a more compliant ride. This setup is more appropriate for the car with a tire that rides much smoother and quieter than before. The SC430 is not any sort of sports car so I don't know what Lexus was thinking with those 40 profile run flats. The car tracks well and feels more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

57,000 miles and these tires are getting toward the end of their life. They have been good, quiet and problem free. Pretty decent in wet weather, good in dry conditions and acceptable but nothing to brag about in snow even with an all wheel drive vehicle. I did slide into a ditch on level ground after tapping the brakes while driving slowly in very icy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS

I hear so many people critique this tire and three things always come up: (1) treadwear,(2)wet traction and (3) price. First of all, this is my third set of the Eagle LS tire on two different cars. Both my cars are heavy luxury sedans that are made for performance. One is a 2000 Chrysler 300M, the other is a Cadillac CTS. Both cars are heavy in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I finally caved in to what I thought was hype about snow/winter tires and bought a set of Michelin X-Ice3 tires for my Sonic. After driving through a michigan winter on them... WOW! I was VERY impressed with how well these tires worked in the snow. A little FWD car that everyone thought I was crazy for driving it in the winter... short of being stuck in a...  Read More
