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

I just recently installed the BFG KO2's on my 2011 Ford F-150 5.0. So far I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about this tire. I'm pretty easy-going in my driving, so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off R so I haven't really push these tires to their limits on or off road. The three immediate differences that I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I have a 2005 SLK 350 that had the Bridgestone Potenza's on it since it was new, while these are great tires they also cost. I myself read reviews on the G-Max tires and liked what people had to say, so I took a chance and bought them, I am so happy with these tires in all aspects, handling, road noise, the general look of them, and the fact that I was able...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Best tires I've had, Aggressive driving. I wore them out in 8000 miles doing burnouts and autocrossing the truck. I have an LS3 Corvette V8 in my single cab pickup. When the tires were new, they made ZERO road noise and rode smoothly. I took them through 8 of slushy snow and they performed. I took them through severly soft sand in a well traveled river bed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Great looking tire, great handling tire, great wearing tire, great priced tire... only drawback is that these tires have gotten EXTREMELY LOUD as they get older. Funny - because they are wearing very evenly, but the wa-wa-wa noise like an off road tire has really spoiled an otherwise favorable review. Doubt that I would buy these again - too bad, I like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I've had these tires on this car for almost 50K and have had great success with them. In fact I'm going to buy another set before the winter. They drive nicely, I don't notice any noise, and they have gotten through a bunch of Northeast winters without problems.   Read More

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

I held off on reviewing this tire until I had a few miles on this set. I now have almost 20,000 miles on them and they look like new. I had Michelins on my Mazda 6 prior to replacing them with the Generals. I have replaced Michelins in the past because I found them to be terrible in the rain and snow as well as noisy when cornering. The Altimax tires corner...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought these for my wife. Immediately noticed a marked reduction in gas mileage. There goes any money we hoped to save! And because the Civic has that dumb (and numb) electric steering, these tires require constant correction - very aggravating and tiring, especially on longer trips. The sidewalls are way too soft and make the car lean heavily while...  Read More

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

I am very particular about my tires. Here is why and this is my story. I have driven many types of vehicles with many different makes of tires. The difference between a good and bad tire can be the difference between life or death!! That said, everyone has near misses with the crazies on the road! No one is perfect but, you get what you pay for. When I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

So far after about 18-20 months with them on my VW Jetta 2.0T, wear has been outstanding, dry handling good, exceptional wet handling and surprisingly they are actually ok in the snow! I don't bother with winter rubber on this car, if it gets bad out there we have a truck, so no worries. The price for these was very competitive which sealed the deal. If I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I am About to buy my 3rd set of rears. I am getting about 12000 miles on a set of rears and will get about 36000 on the fronts. I drive my car hard and these tires are rock solid in the corners. The ride and noise are fine. They are great in wet and dry never losing traction or ever having broken loose. The only time I had issue was during a drive to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These tires replaced OEM tires for me. Got them from tirerack.com. I've noticed a huge improvement in smoothness and road noise from mile 1 with them. I have driven about 19,000 miles on them so far. In fact, these are a big step up from the OEM Goodyears in every way except one -- treadwear. That has been surprising given their rating. I got 37,000 miles on...  Read More

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

This is second review. Have not changed opinion of tires. Quiet, smooth, relatively good in wet conditions, but find cornering a little mushy. Love them on the road; as good as any tire have ever had before. Can't beat them for the price paid. Would buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I bought this set of Bridgestones initially just on the tread design. I'll admit I had low expectations based on the low performance of the Potenzas that come stock in many cars. They wear fast, have non-aggresive tread design, and are generally under-performing tires. However, the S04s are so much better than those, that I don't know why they even badge...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Excellent tire. I pushed the limits, on private off roads, with hazardous conditions. Deep snow, packed snow and ice. Ice was decent for not being studded. Never disappointed me. There a little rough on the highway, but not bad at all. Tread wear is good for a snow tire. I have about 16,000 miles on them and they still have decent sipping. Probably good for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tire Rack's delivery was faster than what I was expecting! I've used Tire Rack for years and recommend them several times throughout the year. I live near Akron, Ohio, USA, and have had these Generals for a year now. They're GREAT! I use four of them on an AWD Impreza. I drive in the city, on the highway, and occasionally on grass, dirt, or mud. I have them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Don't get me wrong, I feel totally confident driving in snow and ice conditions with this tire. In a straight line it starts and stops very well with very little slippage. However, cornering grip is less than expected and the Macan tends to drift out during the turn in moderate to heavy snow conditions. I have heard that this is a Macan tendency so I am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Mileage is an estimate, since they are on about 4 months per year. I am now at 7/32 tread. This is their 6th season, and my third Legacy they've been on. I just verified my purchase date as November 2009, because I was replacing one tire that had a slice in the sidewall. Naturally it happened last night just after we got 7 of snow, and temporarily spoiled my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

I've been driving on these for about 15,000 miles as a daily driver. I've been caught out in the snow once with them (normally drive a truck when the snow comes) and they did outstanding in 2 deep snow. Other than that, it has all been wet/dry driving on mostly highway and weekend treks on curvy roads. Road noise is a bit higher than most tires but nothing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Bought tires just before winter of 2013 and never looked back. Very happy with the tire all around. They wear like iron, have 25,000 miles on the set and can't tell. Winter snow in the Snow Belts in Michigan can be problem for some, but with these tires I never have to worry. Tire noise on dry payment is as good as highway tires on my wife's van. Tire's...  Read More
