Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Although I am only allowed to enter a maximum of 100,000 miles, I actually put 129,000 miles on the tires before replacement. Tread wear was in the 3-4/32 range for all four tires.I replaced them because of sidewalk cracks and cracks between the tread blocks. In other words, the tread outlasted the rubber.I rotated the tires every other oil change and...  Read More

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

Yes, I had over 70,000 mixed paved /unpaved travels. Not one flat. Noisier than OE Goodyear Wranglers & Dunlops, but not objectionable. These tires are the only brand I've had on several SUV's over the years that I didn't have a flat with. The only reason I replaced them (with another set of BFG AT's) was the weather checking. Still had another 10k in them.Wh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

I am a bit of a tire geek and a believer that you buy a tire for a certain function. Know what you need it to do, and then decide on a tire accordingly. Do not assume that any tire with a good rating will make you happy. I have aggressive performance tires on my sports car. For the SUV, I have a set of LRR highway tires, and a set of dedicated snow tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

I live in Central NY and we get snow. I just finished our 5th winter seasons with these tires on our Accord and they have been great. I felt compelled to right a review as my wife's car with 17k miles on the all season tires struggled to get up our snowy inclined driveway this winter. The Accord walked right up it with the 5 year old snows. In their 5th year...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G055

These tires replaced OE Michelins. Tire rep recommended the new Yokohama G055's. Great tire. To date no complaints, slightly more noise then the Michelins but nothing to make one dislike them. Have only seen slight skiff of snow since I have gotten them (approx 2 months). I would recommend these tires for your SUV. Will repost when have more mileage on them....  Read More

Best Tires for Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Rogue has been a very popular vehicle since its debut in 2007 with the 2008 model year. This crossover SUV earned Consumers Digest Best Buy award in 2010, as well as NHTSA's highest side-impact rating (5 stars) the same year, propelling them to the forefront of the XUV market. With so many options out there, what tires should you buy to replace...  Read More

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

Far exceeded expectations, especially in snow. After buying a CPO Q5 3.2 late in the winter and experiencing the oem Dunlops, I needed to decide on some a/s tires, and many of the usual go-to tires were sold out.I knew the Conti-General product line is excellent, based on my experience with a few models, so I took a chance on these RT tires. I hoped that 700...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

I've only got 2500 miles on this tire, but I'm very impressed with the ride comfort and noise level. These are very quiet and very comfortable. They absorb most small road vibrations and rough surfaces (like small rocks and gravel)they are very quiet. I'd have to say they are the quietest tire you could buy for a light truck or suv. The sidwalls are not very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Had the previous generation Verde (not Plus) on my previous Mercedes MLs. Moved up a size to the GL, and immediately after purchase took off the factory run-flat tires, replacing them with the Verde Plus. Extremely happy with them. I don't cut corners - the size is a touch too large (285 vs. 275) for the vehicle but that's part of what needs to be done. Ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

Replaced these for the stock wheels on my used 2009 Saturn Vue initially. Now buying another set for the harsh NY winter. Couldn't believe the traction in snow. My travels to work from home involve uphill at night & downhill in the morning. I'd never buy another tire for my SUV. Great tires for Spring through Fall also.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I had OEM Continental tires which worn out completely in the middle after about 30K miles. Then I researched from Tirerack.com and purchased these Conti DWS. What a difference!! My C300 is a sport model but it completely became a luxury model. So quite and soft, yet it handles really really well (always handled well before). Felt like a totally new car. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Studs installed and the tires perform securely. Bought the tires for winter driving only and this is the third season and would /will buy again. I do mostly back road driving, hills and sharp corners my suv sticks securely to the road. Not worried about any noise from the tires. The studs do sound like you have stones stuck in tires on dry pavement. When I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The original tires on the Sonata 2.0T were Hankook's and were touted as all season tires able to handle light snow. Well those tires were downright treacherous in the ice/snow, even in light snow. I decided after driving in last year's Baltimore winter which was quite snowy and cold, I would opt to buy a set of winter tires as part of a Tire Rack wheel/tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Signature (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I just ordered by second set of these tires for my Cayenne. All other tires for my high performance SUV cost at least double the cost of these and many of them perform much worse. I have almost 150k miles on my Cayenne. I have purchased Porsche NXX OEM tires, Pirelli, Michelin, and Continentals during the time I have owned this SUV. I drive a 911 during the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Bought these for my Honda Ridgeline. This is the third set of tires on this vehicle. The first one was the OEM Michelin LTX M/S which dry rotted after about 15,000. The second set was probably the best all weather tire I've had. They were Nokians WR G2 SUV with the snow flake symbol on them but they were good in the summer as well. The big trade off with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I was actually tempted to buy a set of Pirelli P7 Cinturato tires because they had gotten good reviews in light snow and ice. I've been running Blizzaks for 17 years and they never failed me.I called Tire Rack to order a set of Blizzaks and they were sold out. These Yokohama Ice Guard 52c's were recommended by my sales rep, even though they were new this...  Read More

Is the General AltiMAX Arctic the Best Studdable Winter / Snow Tire?

With recent snow falls still making news, many of us our reminded that we still have many weeks (and months in some areas) of winter driving left this season. To see if February is still a good time to purchase winter tires, take a look at "Is it Too Late to Buy Winter / Snow Tires?"   The Bridgestone Blizzak WS80, and Michelin X-Ice Xi3 and Bridgestone...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Got these due to moving to Denver from Washington DC...all seasons were getting worn, so saving them for spring/summer driving and got these for fall/winter. So glad we did. We live halfway between Denver and Colorado Springs along I-25 and my wife drives to Colorado Springs for work a lot. She has done it a couple of times in snowstorms and on a couple of...  Read More
