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

Being from NJ, I drove down the Garden State Pkwy during a torrential rain storm and not once I felt unsecured driving on these tires, I could not believe it would not give me any sign of hydroplaning any speed I pushed on (55m/h+) while ALL the cars on front of me had their flashing light on, I was cruising along with no problem at all, the grip was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I purchased these tyres expecting them to be sub-par compared to other rugular snow tyres, but these really impressed me. I have about 7,000 miles on them so far and they have handled terrifically. I would definitely buy these again.   Read More

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

Noisiest tire ever!! Louder than the shagged Bridgestone Blizzak's they replaced. I bought these tires because they were inexpensive and have an aggressive tread as a compromise to swapping out dedicated snows every year so I did not expect them to be quiet, but holy cow....my normally quiet sedan now sounds like a turbo prop airplane taxiing down the...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 the Best All-Season or All-Terrain Tire for Snow Traction?

If you've experienced driving through a tough winter season on a top-tier winter tire like the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-2, you'd agree that a set of dedicated winter tires offer the best traction in snow and on ice. If you are one who doesn't agree with this statement, take a look at "Do Winter/Snow Tires Really Make a Difference?" Winter tires should be...  Read More

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

Incredible all around performance. Expansion joints are felt and heard, but I think it's more attributed to my suspension set-up than the tires. Great responsiveness in wet and dry. Good grip in deep snow. Playing around on muddy curves is fun with these things! I'd definitely recommend these tires and will buy again when they're needed. Rotated once so far,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Nice, quiet tire. It drives well in wet/dry conditions. It's not the best all-season tire I've used in snow. I had General summer tires on a '00 Nissan Maxima that handled snow better than this tire.We bought these from Firestone with the Lifetime Balance/Rotation as well as Lifetime Alignment. After about three years of city, highway, and yearly trips from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

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

I got these tires because I live in an area that gets rain and snow. So i did not just want a snow tire i needed a all around performer in all conditions. That is exactly what i got with this tire. I have never had tires that got compliments from my tire installer and co workers to random people. So when i got these tires i got rain right away to test them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

If you want the best tire for the average driver, this tire Brand and Model has no equal. It is supremely quiet and silky smooth and has great braking (stopping) ability. For some reason when Michelin started to built these tires back in about 2008 or thereabouts they got everything right. You really can't ask more out of a tire than these. The only place...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

South Western VA Can see some crazy weather..not as bad as other places but these mountains are unpredictable. we honestly Never know what's gonna happen, so that's why I use snow tires..I purchased these tires in 2015. We had regular snows in January, up until Jonas, and another big snow in February. After taking them off for summer, we had a crazy snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

New tires are a tremendous improvement over the OEMs although I have to admit that I've lost 2-3 mpg with these tires. I'll take it for the responsiveness and handling that I gained over the OEMs. Hybrid is a tough car to buy tires for. With electric motor, I more often than not spin tires at stop sign or red light. I've learned to ease into forward motion...  Read More

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

After reading reviews, I decided to take the plunge and make my purchase through Tire Rack. When I received them, I was concerned if I would have to contend with road noise with the aggressive thread pattern and to my surprise they are super quiet. Tire Pressure it set to 33.5 cold. These tires are all the rave people have been talking about. The shoulders...  Read More

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

Had 3 sets of these tires on 3 different vehicles. Won't buy anything else. Don't go mudding or rock crawling but tow a boat/motor/trailer package that goes about 2,900 lbs. on some sand and gravel roads and launch and recover at some slick ramps. Have also gone on 6,000+ mile road trips with them. Why these particular tires? Control. No hydroplaning when...  Read More

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

I'm a writer by trade but interestingly I can't stand writing product reviews. However, I had to write about these amazing tires because I spent about 6 months researching tires before I made the purchase and the BFG KO2s exceeded expectation. I live in Wisconsin and the winters here are not friendly. These tires combined with the AWD on my Durango make for...  Read More

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

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

When the long term winter forecast for Western Washington called for a severe winter by our standards I decided to spring for a dedicated set of winter tires due to my 37 mile one way daily commute. Based on the recommendation of TIRERACK ,I chose a narrower tire with taller sidewall than the stock 205/55 R16. The choice to purchase 195/65 R15 Michellin...  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
