Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I drive from Portland to the SF Bay area every winter. I have come across hazardous driving conditions almost every year, with ODOT frequently stopping all traffic requiring chains in order to drive through the various mountain passes. This is the first year I decided to use a dedicated set of winter tires, as I previously thought that all-seasons with my...  Read More

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

These tires replaced the factory Eagle RS-A tires on my Regal. When trying to accelerate through 1st gear with medium throttle the RS-As spun no matter if it was dry or wet. Which bothered me when winter was coming because they would be worse in the snow. The P Zeros are a world of difference. They ride better and they grip. Dry or wet they hook up when I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

I'm located in the midwest where winter conditions vary widely from day to day. I've had Michelin xIce xI3, and General Altimax Arctics in the past (on FWD Honda vehicles). I decided to try these Pirelli Ice Zero FR tires on my RWD e320. I have Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires for the other 3 seasons, so I'm comparing these Pirelli's to a very well-rated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

My last set of tires were winter tires. I live in Denver and took a risk buying these tires for winter and summer since winter tires noticeably reduce performance. I put these on and for about a month drove on dry pavement and my car seems to accelerate faster and handle way better. I love these tires. We had a dry November but it has snowed a bunch since....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By far the best tires i have ever owned (and i've owned many) for performance. I've had a set on my BMW M235i (non-awd) and boy do these things grip, very sticky once warm! The car does the advertised 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and you feel the acceleration all because of the tires grip. It's my Daily so its mostly City with some Highway. I have done some light...  Read More

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

Just did a trip from Seattle to Bend, OR to Winthrop, WA and back to Seattle over the holidays. In snow/ice/compact for 90% of the time, temps never above 28 as soon as we got out of the Puget Sound area, with lows in high single digits. These tires flat out perform. From compact snow/ice to 4 of fresh over compact to 7 of fresh over gravel, these things...  Read More

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

Driven through 2 inches to 12 inches of snow....unbelievable good traction compared to 2 previous brands on a large SUVs. out for a drive tonnight with family to get take out....6 inches of snow in 2 hours....had to avoid 2 other vehicles sliding through a 4 way stop and a red light....unbelievable how good these tires are. Had to quickly accelerate and one...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Very quiet and unusually good in up to 6 inches of unplowed snow and great on ice. I have a front wheel drive and so, the tires are very important to winter driving. Not at all disappointed. Dry and wet conditions are no problem at all. Unusually smooth on the highway. I don't experience the apparent drag of the stock tires that came with the jeep. Would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I work in a location ~160 miles from home during the week. I drive home on the weekends to be with my family. My home is in a place that people from the boonies call the sticks. Anyway, I am in Virginia, and we don't get the same amount of snow as probably many people who buy this tire live, but when we get it, it takes VDOT days to get out here to clear the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Bought these tires to be used as winter only tires. I've had them on four winters now and they are starting to fade, they are still really good. I drive pretty aggressively and they have never let me down. I'm in Edmonton Canada, which means lots of ice and snow. cornering, ride and sound are as good as my summer tires. I'd defiantly buy them again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Stop reading reviews on other brands and BUY these tires! I have been a Continental customer for 10 years now and whenever I buy a new car I treat myself and the car to a new set of Conti's. These are by far THE BEST all season they have ever created... It handles everything well from dry, wet, loose gravel, mud and snow! We had a storm today that left 6 and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

with only 2000 miles on these and no snow / ice driving it's hard to rate them in that area but the dry / wet traction is at least as good or better than the Michelins they replaced. the Michelins felt squirmy under cornering conditions and the Contis feel much better connected. they may be a little rougher over some surfaces but it feels like the side walls...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I put these on my new 2016 Impreza (16x7 Moda rims) and so far they have been excellent in the couple of storms we've had in Denver. I've driven them out in the Summit county mountains over completely snow covered passes and they performed perfectly without hesitation. I was mainly concerned with noise and comfort and these perform as well if not better in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Finally got a chance to try them in the snow and they did great. Much better ride than the original pirellis and they're half the price of the Michelin pilots. I'm thrilled with every aspect of their performance and will definitely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

My third set of General Altimax RT43's. First set took an ancient Saturn SC2 and made it drive decently with great traction in all weather, good noise, and cornering, and trend lasted very well. Second set were onto Subaru outback that died a week after buying, but tires were an improvement.Third set is now on Mazda 2012 that had Bridgestone...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I live in Chicago IL where winters can get bad at times and I own a 2015 Buick Verano with OE 18 tires which are horrible in any depth of snow, so I bought and downsized (YES THEY FIT) to 16 Blizzak WS80 tires (215/60R16 95H) and wheels to swap during summer and winter and I must say these Blizzak WS80 tires are amazing. We got 10 inches of snow and my...  Read More

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

Wonderful tire! Less than two miles from having the tires mounted, I had to hit the brakes hard to avoid an inattentive driver ahead, and stopped several feet shorter than what I anticipated. Great wet, dry handling, great cornering. Surprisingly quiet and comfortable ride for a performance oriented tire. Gas mileage: I am getting a full 10%-12% fewer mpg...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Second season on the winter tires. Tread is holding up well and still gripping the road well in winter Chicago conditions. This is the best winter tire out there for SUV's. I have tried to slip by aggressive turns and floored vehicle, but no problem with gripping in the snow. Quieter than DM-V1. Blizzak finally topped X ice in the SUV category. I would buy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental VancoFourSeason

I've had these tires on my Dodge Ram ProMaster since August 2014 and have put on 128,000 miles and they still have acceptable tread. They've been rotated once and I've had a flat on two of the tires. I took my truck to a tire place when they had 108,000 miles wear and asked the guy how many miles he thought they had on them and he said no more than 40,000I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Very happy with these tires. Replaced the stock Goodyear's on my G37x. Excellent dry weather traction. Even more impressive is the wet and light snow traction. Traction feels nearly as good as dry traction, an impressive feat (have not had an opportunity to try deep snow yet). Also very happy with the extremely smooth and quiet ride from these tires. Would...  Read More
