Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

Got these tires as the OEM tires from buying the car new. My Jetta Sportwagen TDI has enough torque to break the tires free and activate traction control. This can make it difficult when starting on a hill or on a slick road, since I need to feather the throttle to ensure grip.The tires are a bit noisy on the highway, and tend to transmit even small bumps...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I drive in the snowbelt of NE Ohio. 4 wheel drive is a must if you want to get to work in the morning before the snowplows have had time to get to the roads. I have been driving in the snow for 35 years. This is the best tire I have ever purchased. There is some road noise but I will except that for how well they perform on the Ice and snow. I will be buying...  Read More

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

25,000 miles and they're worn out. Even when new, they would plug up instantly and will not self clean even in very shallow mud (1/2inch or less.) They give very poor traction on anything but dry pavement. I would never buy these again, and would never recommend them to anyone. These are a poor excuse for an all terrain tire, and don't have the tread life to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I have had this set of winter tires for three years now. I would absolutely recommend this tire to anyone, I have never been stuck in any amount of snow, can stop and start almost as well as in the summer and the response time is fantastic. I researched all tires on this site but thins one rated better on everything, and it was no lie. I couldn't be happier...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been completely satified with these tires!!! My Lincoln LS V8 is rear wheel drive, which proves it's own challenges in winter driving. I live in NW Ohio, and suffered a very hard winter last year. I was commuting 130 miles/day for work,,, sometimes through 6 inches of snow... and a couple times on ice!!! With those conditions I never felt as though...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Very pleased with the performance of these tires - far superior than the OEM Goodyear Infinity that only lasted 41,000 miles and got up to 48mpg at best with fair performance. With the Michelins at first got around 46-47 mpg, then as they wore in got closer to 50 mpg, with 52 being the best in ideal circumstances (summer, no A/C, etc). Ride is extremely...  Read More

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

I replaced the worn Pirelli P6's on my 2005 Saab 9-3 ARC convertible with these P7's and I cannot believe the difference! My car drives and rides much smoother and quieter, AND I have better traction and steering response! I have only driven about 600 miles on them so far but they are much superior to the P6's for my average to spirited driving style. I...  Read More

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 Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

Purchased a set of TripleTreds for my wife's CR-V (which are notorious for quickly eating through tires) after running them on my Volvo 850 for 27K miles. The CR-V's OEM tires were spent after 30K miles of normal driving; these tires now have 35K on them, and tread depth has dropped from 10mm to 8mm. Superb treadwear, slightly noisier (due to harder...  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 Michelin Energy Saver A/S

These tires were replacements for the original equipment tires which I only got 40,000 miles out of them. These tires have been wonderful in all weather conditions. We have traveled through 34 states in a lot of different weather conditions and I have never been disappointed. It's time to replace them and I will be buying these again.   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
