Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

A winter/snow/ice tire is not the general purchase of a south Texas driver but after rolling my previous vehicle 2 years ago in an ice event in Colorado my wife insisted that I purchase some dedicated winter tires if we drove out to Colorado again. All I can say is thanks for the missus being so insistent. I purchased a set of these tires for our 2015 Subaru...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Bought them used on rims that fit my car, they are the skinniest option offered for my car. second winter I've had them on now and they work great on the unplowed roads I often encounter driving home from work at 4 A.M. I recently found a second set of stock rims for my wife's van and plan to buy a set for that as well.   Read More

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

The factory tires that came on the Honda did not provide good winter weather traction and were very noisy. These General tires are awesome. Great winter weather traction and very quiet. Honda should install these tires at the factory. We will buy this brand again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

wanted white letter tires and looking for the 215/60r14 was impossible. so I switched my search to the light truck tires and found these tires and they fit perfectly. I have moved 3 times 3 states and they have performed flawlessly well beyond expectations all around. the tread wear so far they still look new. will buy again without hesitation.   Read More

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

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

I'm located in the midwest where winter conditions vary widely from day to day. I've had Michelin xIce xI3, and General Altimax Arctics in the past (on FWD Honda vehicles). I decided to try these Pirelli Ice Zero FR tires on my RWD e320. I have Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires for the other 3 seasons, so I'm comparing these Pirelli's to a very well-rated...  Read More

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

My third set of General Altimax RT43's. First set took an ancient Saturn SC2 and made it drive decently with great traction in all weather, good noise, and cornering, and trend lasted very well. Second set were onto Subaru outback that died a week after buying, but tires were an improvement.Third set is now on Mazda 2012 that had Bridgestone...  Read More

Awesome tire I wouldn't buy anything else   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

OE tires, so expectations have been muted. They've been overall decent tires, fairly quiet on the highway, pretty good dry performance, but not really that good in wet or icy conditions. Compared to other tires I've experienced, they have a tendency to hydroplane. Snow and ice traction is average at best, and I've generally tried to avoid driving this car on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have had a set of Altimax's on every car I have owned (15 in past 2 years). I drive very fast no matter the road conditions and these tires have never let me down. I once drove my Audi A6 in snow that came over the hood (50' long snow drift), and I was able to drive right through it without a problem. All of my friends now run them and most leave them on...  Read More

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

Great value for the money. Pros: -excellent ride quality -very quiet -good wet traction -outstanding snow traction Cons: -squirmy -almost zero feedback/road feel -slow to respondThese tires have very tall, small tread blocks with deep channels in between. The excellent wet traction, even in deep water, and unbelievably good snow grip (almost on par with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Pilots are vast improvement over the factory Potenza run-flats. I made the switch to conventional tires with some trepidation. I have a compressor and plug kit in the trunk, which hopefully will get me home in a pinch. These tires have transformed the car to much more pleasant ride. Traction is phenomenal, directional stability is improved and general...  Read More

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

Purchased these tires because I wanted a great all around tire for the Northwest where we get a lot of rain and a little snow. I wanted a quiet tire that performed well.

After reading reviews I went with the General Altimax rt43 which was made in America for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  Read More

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

My Honda EX-L originally came with Michelin Pilots. On my previous car I had General Altimas and was completely satisfied and hoped that the new RT43 would stand up as well. The RT43 seems to be bit harder thus a bit more road noise, but still the best tire all around for safety, handling, traction, comfort, and durability. I can't fault them in any way, and...  Read More

I got these tires because of the tire rack test review. They had the best ratings and for the best price. I am a very spirited driver and i tend to drive like im on a race track. These tires held up to everything i put them through; mud, sand, gravel, dirt roads, going over the occasional curb to skip traffic and the occasional race here and there. These are...  Read More

I daily drive my 2000 Miata during the winter months here in Virginia. We get 3 or 4 good snows a year. I bought these tires 2 years ago for around 230$ shipped and have loved every second of driving on them.In the snow the first year they had so much grip, with a little weight in the back of the car I was driving picking up people to carry to work in about...  Read More
