Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I currently have these tires on a 2004 BMW 330Ci. There were a lot of bad reviews on here about these tires but I decided to buy them anyway because of the much lower price and the $80 rebate offered. I owned a pair of Hankook Ventus RS2 about 5 years ago and those tires were the best (200 tread wear). The cornered compared to the Micheline Pilot Sport 2 for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

These have been excellent in very deep snow off road. Off road in mud dirt sand rocks etc. are amazing for a streetable tire. Iced over roads not so great, they are not as good as a dedicated winter tire on glazed over roads but they do tend to have problems gripping the polished ice. I have never had a problem with noise but you do know that they are there...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Simply outstanding. Put these winter tires on about a month ago and already in the Chicago area we've gotten 7 inches of snow..which I looked forward to in that I wanted to see if these tires were what I expected. They are quiet on dry roads, very pleasant in cold temperatures (10-20 degrees) responsive and so on. In the snow they are very good and you will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

FAR better than the OEM EL42. Doesn't even feel like an RFT. Handles very well on dry, good on wet, decent on snow, not good on deep snow even with AWD (you should buy winter tires if you encounter deep snow often), and NO A/S tire is going to be good on ice, so don't expect this one to be. Noise level is significantly better than the OEM, but only good, not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Are you kidding me? These are snow tires? Amazing!! They are much more quiet than the OEM high performance all seasons that came on my car. They grip better in the wet and the dry, they have firmer cornering behavior and oh yea, they are snow tires! Which means great cold weather breaking power too. Stop reading and just buy them already... I will never put...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

i live in the lower lakes region in New Hampshire. We get 60 to 100 inches a year. Bought these tires from Tire Rack in 2006. And got 5 1/2 years out of these tires. They are not down too the wear bars yet. But I,m going to buy new ones for these season. One year we got a snow storm that dumped 30 inches in one storm. Was not late for work. These tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

My actual vehicle is a AMC Eagle but it was not listed. I plow snow with this car as well as use it to commute to work. My first set of winter tires were Blizzak WS15s ( I was able to get 25000 winter miles out of them ) and as good as they were the Winter Duelers are that much better. I can drive 15-20 mph faster on snow and packed snow then my summer tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have driven in terrible winter conditions all across Canada (for 20 plus years) and these tires are by far the best I have ever owned (I am talking SUV driving). From heavy wet snow to hard packed snow in -30 windy conditions, to black ice, to ice....these tires have never let me down. They have been so good, I have rarely had to resort to flipping the...  Read More

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

I bought these All Seasons( with low expectations ) to replace my fast wearing yet sticky Summer Pirelli P Zeros. When new the Pilots are squishy while cornering even moderately aggressive. This lessens and eventually goes away around 500 miles or so.I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and these tires got me to and from work in the snow all winter. My S4 didn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

First time buying winter tires and i couldnt be more happier. I put my car through the worst snow ever and never got stuck. The grip on these tires are amazing. Ice traction is ok, have to be more carefull but they are pretty loud on the highway. Overall great price for winter set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I've had these tires on this car for almost 50K and have had great success with them. In fact I'm going to buy another set before the winter. They drive nicely, I don't notice any noise, and they have gotten through a bunch of Northeast winters without problems.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I wasn't sure about this tire when I bought it, but the day I got them put on we had a nasty winter storm that covered pretty much all of the north east and I had to travel during the worst of it. At no point was I worried about the conditions because these tires plow through. I also use my car to drive off road in delivering grain and have had no problem...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These came standard on my 2010 Outback. They are great tires in the summer, including in the rain, but once a little snow starts to fall or it'd cold enouhg for ice, they're terrible. They are very quick to hydroplane and lose traction, especially in the slush that forms on highways during a storm, even at low to moderate speeds. Braking and steering are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Bought these tires when I had 86,926 miles on my trailblazer and I have almost 175,000 miles on my blazer now. Bought my blazer in Feb. 2006 and they had Goodyears on it when I bought it with 33,113 miles on it. When I bought these Michelins I had almost 87,000. I will definitely buy another set of these tires, in which I am due for now. The tires still have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

So far after about 18-20 months with them on my VW Jetta 2.0T, wear has been outstanding, dry handling good, exceptional wet handling and surprisingly they are actually ok in the snow! I don't bother with winter rubber on this car, if it gets bad out there we have a truck, so no worries. The price for these was very competitive which sealed the deal. If I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial Long Trail T/A

These are the tires that came on the truck when I bought it new, and I will let the mileage say enough about durability. Even after multiple repairs from running over nails, screws, and a chunk of wood, these tires have lasted well. Only recently (past year) have I noticed significant deterioration in performance on wet pavement from when I first drove on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak W965

I have worked for a Ski company for 19 years and travel to mountains all winter. I also pull a 16 ft. Trailer loaded with equipment. This is and will be the only tire I will buy as long I drive in snow. I have avoided many deer in the middle of the night on snowy roads in the mountains. I switch them out and put a regular summer tread on when the snow stops...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I've had my set for 6 months, and a little over 12,000 miles. I can honestly say that this is the best all-around, all-season tire that I've ever driven on. For city driving, the braking and acceleration, on wet, icy and snowy conditions had been excellent: predictable and sure. This tire's performance at highway speeds ranging from 65mph - 110mph, over long...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Just put these tires on yesterday, before today's snow storm. I live in the mountains, on windy back roads, with a 1200 foot unpaved, uphill driveway. I'm a high mileage commuter, so I don't skimp on rubber. It's been snowing all day today, so I decided to try out the new X-ice 3's I just put on. These are my 3rd set of Winter tires. Living where I do, with...  Read More
