Initial Review, 14,000 Miles on Tires
October 19, 2010

Sadly, I just got rid of this car, and did not have the time to swap out tires. I wouldn't call these tires Ultra, more touring that performance actually. Turn in is a bit soft, but if you go aggressively, they catch up and dig in. Very good ride, minimal noise. I didn't really use these in the winter, put on new in April, and traded the car just last month. Fantastic and predictable, even in deep rain from downpours. The best part was wear. No noticeable wear at all after 12k miles. My new car is a 2011 Camry with these same size tires. The Michelins that came with the car reminded me of how much I loved the new Yokahama. The Michelins taught me a good lesson in that latest downpour, they aren't very good at all. I will be buying a new set of these Yokahamas next year for the Camry.

In February 2010, I purchased these tires. They arrived after the mid-Atlantic region received over 25 inches of snow in 2 days and expecting 30 inches more the upcoming weekend. Luckily, I was able to get them installed Friday because Thursday, I waited for 4 hours and they told me they couldn't do it. On Friday, I went to a different place.



Anyway, these tires are the best. They are noisy and I expected them to be noisy because of the tread pattern. Occasionally, the noise gets annoying but the safety and reliability is worth the noise. From rain to snow to ice, I swear by these tires. They tackled last years blizzard without any hesitation.



Right now, Hurricane Irene is in the Mid-Atlantic area. If for some reason I had to go out and save a life or something, I am relying on my Geolanders. I know they will bring me home safely whether there is sun, rain, snow, or ice.



Go buy them now!

I am a transporter and today I am at the Firestone store having another set of Transforce A/T's installed on my truck. In the past 6 months I put 70,000 miles on the tires and they never once let me down with excellent traction in all weather conditions. I pull a 20ft trailer usually loaded with 7,000 lbs on it and they work great - quiet and smooth ride, safe and secure feeling when driving in snow/ice conditions. It is a great relief to not have to worry about rain, snow, ice and sand when driving is my job across the lower 48 states.

I Just replaced a set of Pirelli's with these and am very happy. Quiet ride, sure footed and smooth. Have been in some rain and they performed well. Slight hydroplane, but not bad. I am a sales rep driving 35K a year, so I'm in the car a lot. Tires / wheels are important to me! These are my Summer set up to switch out from Blizzak's in the winter. If these give me decent wear, I will be very happy with them. I would recommend them.

Ordered for Lexus several years ago and have been happily surprised with minimal wear. Tires still look new. Excellent grip and very comfortable. Gave us the best ride we ever had on our LS 400. Handles very well, good turn in and really responsive. Rotated and balanced normally. At higher speeds we were surprised the tire was silent. Really feels secure dry or wet. Lexus should have put S.4 on car from day one. We will buy tire again if needed, but am thrilled if we ever go to sell car the tires sure look in excellent shape and give a great ride. If you have a heavy luxury vehicle and want a superb tire this is it.

What a refreshing change from our old tires. I never thought I'd buy Firestones after their problems over the years, but these came recommended and... they're an almost unbelievable combination of very quiet, exceptional responsiveness, high corning limits (okay I don't explore the handling limits too much in a Town and Country, but the van definitely handles better than ever), great wet traction (my wife complained a lot about this van in the rain for 8 years, but not now), snow traction (good, for the first time in the eight years we've had this van. I really couldn't be happier. I sure hope these tires last a long time, because driving on them is a pleasure. One thing I have noticed is that the sipes (the very small grooves in the tread) only go about half way down, so I'm wondering how much the snow and wet traction will diminish as the tires wear.
Incidentally, this van came from the factory with Yokohamas, which wore quickly, were awful in the snow and rain, and were kind of mushy handling. I replaced them with BFGoodrich Traction TAs after a good experience with them in an older tread pattern - they were noisy, had bad wet and snow traction, wore pretty quickly and I had a defective one.
I was determined to get a really good tire on my van - I thought I would buy Michelin Defenders, but I think the Firestones are a superior tire.
And no, I don't work for Firestone.

I purchased these tires for a road trip, 500 miles one way, and I'm very pleased with them so far. I haven't had a chance to drive in the rain yet but, the dry traction and level of road noise is very good. I've gone thru 3 sets of PS2 and 2 sets of Michelin AS. I don't drive it like I'm on the track but I do have fun on the occasional off ramp. These tires are comprable to the PS2, PS2 has better steering feel. The Sumitomo's are quiter and for the cost, it can't be beat. I will update my review after putting some more miles on them. Thanks to others who have reviewed them, I'm not dissapointed. When it comes time to change out the tires on the porsche, these will be going on them. I think these tires are an excellent street tire.

These tires replaced a set of Michelin Pilot Exaltos, which are excellent tires. On most measures I would consider the Yokohama to be even better. Dry and wet traction are both excellent, and better than the Michelins. Cornering is excellent. Snow traction is clearly much better than the Michelins.



I do not have enough miles on these tires to comment on treadwear.



The only negative I can think of is that these tires are a bit louder in hard cornering. This is no reason not to buy them, but they are going to let you know when you push the limit. That may actually be a good thing.



One final comment that I think is a bit of an anomaly: This set of tire were balanced three times in the first 750 miles. Basically that means at the original installation and once a week thereafter. There was a subtle high speed (65-70 MPH) balance problem. Neither of the re-balance efforts helped. The problem simply vanished on its own at about 1000 miles.



In summary, I am extremely pleased with these tires and would not hesitate to recommend them. Treadwear is as yet unknown, but the Michelins they replaced made it to 54,000 miles. I would be happy if these Yokohamas reach 40,000 miles.

Don't know why I am not asked in the questionnaire for dirt, sand and stones review when one fifth of our driving on the Volvo XC90 AWD 320 Diesel is on aggressive gravel and light mud roads. The Conti CrossContact LX20 Ecoplus has been a marvel, after going through two sets of original tires. It performs beautiful in the mountain curvy highways leading from San José, Costa Rica to the lowlands, even in wet conditions. In the Guanacaste lowlands the speed is up to 160 kph and the braking and turning ability is marvelous.
Once on the aggressive gravel roads towards Punta Islita the tires behave superb and have not had a flat, an old habit with the original ones.
After 20,000 kms the tires show no wear or tear. Definitely recommend for anyone combining both highway and gravel surfaces.

Took off the nitto v2 and went from 235/40/18 to 245/35/18 car is lowered andhas spacers tires are flush looks pretty sick, but the performance so far is definitely improved and on every level it is amazing response is instant like what your thinking just happens with no effort, acually so fast that I found my self early in the turn at first, handles so well it makes me smile, as I pull away from from a 1100 cc racing/street bike who was completely laid out on a tight banked turn to the left that is marked 45mph, looking back for a split second in my mirror fourth gear exiting at 100++pulling out on that rider and having him come up next to me as I'm acknowledging his turn he is nodding and showing me acknowledgement that I was faster than him in and out of the tturn that I regularly hit at about 10mph slower with the feel of maxing out the nitto's, my new ssports could have handled more easly ! Tires are the most important component in a complete suspension after market or stock Its worth the extra $$ for the best and I truly believe these michelin tires are the best I've ever run from bfg to perrelli and just about any other tire you can think of I've tried in the last 25 yrs overall already a ten will update after summer.

I'm very pleased with my purchase, both the tires and TireRack service. I really haven't put the tires through the ringer yet, but I can tell you the following.

The ride is comfortable.
Dry traction on on turns are great, keep on pushing but haven't found the limit yet.
Straight acceleration the tires let go, but that could be the suspension, I'm putting in coilovers now so I can do some tuning.

I'm going to be making some trips between NY and FL so I will be able to tell you more about highway driving.

Can't comment on wear, but the tires still look brand new.

All in all, great tires, great company, as long as TireRack is around they will be my single source of road rubber.

Best tires I ever owned. I check the inflation on my tires every week, rotate them at every oil change and have my alignment checked once a year. I could easily get another 3,000 miles out of them if I wanted, but the tread is down to the wear bars. My only problem is nobody carries them so I have to special order. Worth the wait.

April 16, 2014

Living in Germany where snow tires are required during the winter months. I am running Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S tires the rest of the year. I can compare them to each other. The Michelin tires are by far the best tires I have ever put on any of my cars for warm or wet driving. But when it is cold (40 degrees or lower) or icy, the Conti's are mind-blowing. I am 45 years old and grew up driving in snow and ice covered steep, curvy mountain roads. The Conti winter tires brake and handle astonishingly well on snow and ice. They are superior to the Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S in very cold temps on both wet and dry. They have two weak spots. First, when pushed hard in sustained turns, they fall off suddenly and dramatically, which is forgivable for winter tires that perform so well as intended. Second, at high speed in a strait line the car is very unsettled. It just won't track straight. My my oldest son eventually gets queazy.
This comes on at about 60mph and gets worse all the way to 'can't go any faster" mph. The Autobahn is smooth as freshly Zambonied ice and yet the exhausting high frequency instability is ever present. (tried rotating tires, no effect)
Bottom line:
Astonishingly good winter traction in cold dry, cold wet, snow covered and ice covered roads. If you travel at high speeds for long periods of time, maybe look at another tire.

Initial Review, 3,200 Miles on Tires
March 26, 2014

Purchased four of these tires for an old 1995 Subaru Impreza L AWD daily driver. My main concerns for new tires was superior snow/ice handling, acceptable/above average wet handling, and above average dry traction with a great tread-life while keeping prices low. After I did extensive research and comparison charts I purchased the Firestone Precision Touring tires right as winter was in full force.

*In the snow/ice, the tires handle extremely well. I was driving around plow trucks with ease and mated with the AWD, was truly unstoppable this winter. Once the snow hit a few inches, the tires still gripped and when they did give way to sliding, were extremely predictable, allowing me to counter-steer with ease.
*Wet handling is acceptable, though not the greatest, but is not a reason to dismiss the tire, as it is still very predictable in those hazards.
*Dry traction and responsiveness are perfect with the only downside to cornering stability, which I believe is the weakest point of the tires. It can feel as if the tire would give way or takes a second to find the road when cornering. Despite this harsh review; it is actually on par with other tires for dry cornering in this price range.
*As to tread-wear, I cannot speak as to the performance of the category since I have not had the tires long enough.
*The comfort level is great. The tires take harsh bumps without any real complaints; in fact, I believe that I could have potentially bent a rim in lieu of popping a tire, of course due to the enormous potholes that plagued PA and DE (the Northeast Snow Belt area) this winter.
*Price - $77.00 a tire, which didn't break the bank for an old car but was well worth it.

Overall, I was looking for some affordable tires that would give me the best points of all-season tires, with increased winter time performance. The Firestone's came through and I will definitely purchase again, pending the outcome of the tread-wear. I would highly recommend them.

Initial Review, 6,000 Miles on Tires

These Michelins replaced the Pirelli P Zero Nero all seasons that originally came on my GTI and they have exceeded all my expectations. I cannot recommend them enough! I was dead set on summer tires at first, but someone told me to check these out and a month of research later I bought the Michelins.

I started autocross this year and I'm topping the GS class after 2 events with these tires against guys with more experience - some with max performance summer tires! They still can't believe a 500 rated tire can be that sticky.

Ride and noise: The Pirellis were pretty good but the A/S3s are noticeably better.
Dry traction: Way, way more grip than the Pirellis. Just as fast on the track as similar cars with 200 treadwear rated tires.
Wet traction: As good as the Pirellis were IN THE DRY.
Cold temps: No noticeable drop-off in grip compared to warmer temps.
Snow and Ice: I'd call them manageable. In light to medium snow, they were fine. On ice, I can't recommend them. I just barely made it up a ramp to an interstate overpass to get home after a couple hours of freezing rain.

Other than snow and ice traction, the only other negative comment I have is I think the sidewall could be a little stiffer. Even with 45 psi, the front tires were wearing past the shoulder indicator on the track.

If snow and ice traction is a priority for you, choose another tire. If you don't see a lot of snow and just want an excellent all-around year-around tire, look no further.
