Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I recently received my Mercedes-AMG C43 order and it arrived with Continental ContiSportContact SSR tires. I'd already purchased Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (non-run-flat) for the car and the dealer generously agreed to buy the Continental tires back from me. However, they couldn't get the car in to switch the tires for a couple of days, so I drove the car...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I have had mediocre to bad experiences with Michelin Tires in the past. I was a little uneasy about buying these tires. All that I can say is that I have been pleasantly surprised! These are super tires. The entire Michelin Organization should be very proud of this product. They do everything extremely well, except my front tires have a slight slip on road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these as replacements for the OEM Kumhos that came with my car... The Kumhos were ok as long as it wasn't too wet out. They were horrible in the snow... but these Continental PureContacts were very highly rated and that turned out to be true.This is a fantastic tire - great traction in the rain and light snow... and quiet as well. These are a bargain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I really like these tires. We have a lot of days where the temperatures are below freezing at night and warm in the afternoons, so I had to go to all weather tires. They don't track as well as switching between summer and winter tires, but these tires are a good compromise. I was wearing out my winter tires quickly when the weather got warm in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is a dream tire from the low rolling resistance which gives good gas mileage to the outstanding wet dry and snow performance. I have yet to encounter conditions where I had anything but the highest reliance on the handling of these tires and they have come through like a champ in all road conditions I have encountered and all weather be it rain turning...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Replaced the Michelin OEM tires with these. Didn't really see any change in mpg but they are much quieter and handled great. I'm talking mini van handling not sedan. Only now with 67k on them have they begun to sqeal on corners, but there's only 3/8 tread left. Really loved the comfort level and smoothness over the entire life of tire. Would buy again....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

Bought 4 Kuhmo tires for spouse's Accord and was pleasantly surprised how good they are performing (Ecsta PA 31) so I went back for more Kuhmo's for my daughter's Chevy Cruze. Installed set of 4 Kuhmo Solas TA-71's for her 2014 Chevy Cruze 2LT. Amazing to hear and feel the difference from the OEM Continental ProContacts to the Kuhmo's. Tires feel solid and...  Read More

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

I went back-n-forth for weeks trying to decide about which tire to buy. I finally chose to splurge for the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ over the Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06. Yes, the Michelin tires are a bit pricey, but they are definitely well worth the invest. The ride, performance, and handling are superb. I would absolutely purchase these tires...  Read More

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

There is a lot to like about this tire, but unfortunately, that is outweighed by the tires' failures. The Pirellis are VERY LOUD (road noise is about double over the OEM Continentals that came with the car) and they offer a harsh ride. I'm guessing the sidewalls are thicker than the OEM Continental 4X4s. In some aspects, the car responds better during sudden...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

my comments may come across as crude 2 the faint of heart. so, i'll just say move on as i truly mean no harm. 4 those that wish 2 glean some useful info on a tire, don't waist your time reading comments on rubber with less than 7k miles - USELESS DRIBBLE! ok, so much 4 commentary how about the 06.i've had legacy dws on my lex gs 400 / 430 and ls 460 - loved...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I bought those tires mostly on the basis of other reviews. I didn't want to buy a dedicated snow tire/wheel set for my M5 and wanted something to work in snow and summer.Bottom line, this tire's traction in snow is very decent... On ice, it's not that good as I expected. The ride is soft and cornering isn't that great but again this is an all season tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I've been looking for a good All Season to replace my stock pirellis on my camaro, and I was mainly looking at the DWS for the snow performance because I like to enjoy my car year round and needed my car to atleast be drivable but these tires blew me away! I first got them a day before a snow storm so I really put them to the test and let met tell you that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these Sumitomo tires as their specifications (AAA - 600 tread wear) H rated were similar to the top Michelins, Continentals etc specs and were almost half the price. I haven't been disappointed. It a well made, top quality tire at a great price and I'm very happy with the tire performance and the savings!!! It was also very easy through TireRack to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Big fan of Tire Rack, since 1997 every single tire we have purchased has been from Tire Rack. NOW onto the tire review. WOW! Amazing how this tire performs! We've had mixed snow, rain, and some dry road surface condition. The last set of tires we had, more or less took a dive due to control arms and out tie rod ends needing to be replaced and a 4 way...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Stop reading reviews on other brands and BUY these tires! I have been a Continental customer for 10 years now and whenever I buy a new car I treat myself and the car to a new set of Conti's. These are by far THE BEST all season they have ever created... It handles everything well from dry, wet, loose gravel, mud and snow! We had a storm today that left 6 and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

with only 2000 miles on these and no snow / ice driving it's hard to rate them in that area but the dry / wet traction is at least as good or better than the Michelins they replaced. the Michelins felt squirmy under cornering conditions and the Contis feel much better connected. they may be a little rougher over some surfaces but it feels like the side walls...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental VancoFourSeason

I've had these tires on my Dodge Ram ProMaster since August 2014 and have put on 128,000 miles and they still have acceptable tread. They've been rotated once and I've had a flat on two of the tires. I took my truck to a tire place when they had 108,000 miles wear and asked the guy how many miles he thought they had on them and he said no more than 40,000I...  Read More
