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 Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I have never owned a set of snow tires. We just had a storm here in NJ; I cannot believe a set of tires could provide such a high level of confidence and reassurance! My RWD 128 I Sport moved through ice and snow with impunity. The car literally feels glued to the hard packed icy road. The tires communicate the level of traction; you no longer have that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID S33D

Avid S33D was OE tire on our Prius. This tire has exceeded all expectations, especially longevity for an OE tire. Still have legal tread depth left and remain perfectly round after over 54,000 miles. Noise is average for a tire while not being uncomfortable, plus they have maintained good performance in rain at the limits of wear. A recent trip in Oct of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

These are very good tires. They are outstanding in the dry and very good in the wet. Very stable and very good steering response. I track my car with Dunlop Direzza ZII ultra high performance tires I put on for that purpose only, and I can say the Eagle F1's 80-90% of that tire in terms of grip. Which is saying a lot because the Direzzas are almost racing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I waited to drive on these for a few months before writing a review. I have loved these tires since getting them but after driving from Long Island to Burlington, VT in sleet slush and heavy snow, driving around Burlington in 6-12 inches of snow, I can confidently say THESE TIRES ROCK. I never felt slipping or sliding, even while passing in the snow covered...  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 Michelin LTX A/T 2

I selected this tire knowing that it will mostly be on paved roads but I also needed something that could handle snow/rain/slush/dirt/mud. Just completed my second trip through Oregon on the I-84 in winter and these tires were admirable in horrible conditions, even inflated at 70 psi. These replaced the OEM POS's on an F-250 SD. I had no problems going 55 on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

I bought the truck new with these tires. I keep the tires at 43 psi and to date I have had no problems. I have driven east coast to the west coast and from western NY to Florida and I don't have any complaints to date. I think they last 45000 miles and will most likely buy them again. It is possible that some people do not have enough air in the tire and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

I replaced my 2nd set of OE Michelin Diamaris due to uneven tire wear, high noise levels, etc. My first impressions were WOW! no noise (low speed or at 85 mph), small imprefections in road surfaces are a lot less noticeable, and handling dry or wet is great. Now that I have more than 2,500 mile on them my first impressions continue.Do they have the same dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I like these tires. I bought these tires several months ago, but didn't get any real driving in because I was having some work done on the car. I'm only writing this review because I'm highly impressed with these tires. Today is 4th of January and it is a slightly rainy day in Western, PA. I drive 60 miles one way to work I do not normally drive this car in...  Read More

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

Im very particular about my tires. Lots of research goes into finding the tire for my car. Ive never wrote a review of them until today. I live in Iowa and today we got nailed with a snow storm. Its my first really good snow with these tires and WOW did I love it. Ive lived in the north my whole life so snow driving is nothing new. They handle packed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

Bought these tires forma box store two years ago to replace a set of Yokohama Avid Touring tires S (also an nice touring tire). I think the Pirellis perform better, (a little squeal on sharp fast turns) I gentle reminder that I need to ease up.These perform a lot better on turns and emergency turns. The stopping distances have slightly reduced. At almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season

Overall I'm impressed with these tires. I was concerned with how they handle in the snow and I was considering snow tires but these tires combined with the Audi Quattro make it impossible to get stuck. I drove through unplowed parking lots with 7 snow with no problem. treadwear is good. I had a couple of problems with blisters from hitting pot holes but that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Just installed the Bridgestone WS80 prior to the big Super Bowl snowstorm of 2015. I had been told by tire guys that if I had a good set of all season radials I'm just as well off as having snow tire. Too bad I believed that for too long. After my wife had a very close call on icy roads with my 4 children in the van with her, I thought a set of winter tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This was my first winter tire purchase and I have zero regrets about buying it. I think one of the most important benefits of this tire was the confidence of its performance driving in snow or rainy conditions. It's handling in adverse weather is incredible compared to my previous all-season tires.The tire is a bit noisy as can be expected by the tread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

The set of four Continental Pure Contacts I purchased for my 2012 Honda Accord was one of the best decisions I have made. These tires provide a good, comfortable ride and the car handles quite nicely. The real test has been the last couple of months in snow country, which was my primary focus when buying these tires. In the snow, these tires perform very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More
