Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

If you want the best tire for the average driver, this tire Brand and Model has no equal. It is supremely quiet and silky smooth and has great braking (stopping) ability. For some reason when Michelin started to built these tires back in about 2008 or thereabouts they got everything right. You really can't ask more out of a tire than these. The only place...  Read More

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

Let me start off by saying these are performance tires so expect a slight trade off in ride comfort/noise over a touring tire. With that said, these tires grip like crazy! I usually only buy two tires at a time so I am still running the stock Michelin Primacy tires in the rear. The car is so much more playful than before and reacts so quickly to steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Had 3 sets of these tires on 3 different vehicles. Won't buy anything else. Don't go mudding or rock crawling but tow a boat/motor/trailer package that goes about 2,900 lbs. on some sand and gravel roads and launch and recover at some slick ramps. Have also gone on 6,000+ mile road trips with them. Why these particular tires? Control. No hydroplaning when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I'm a writer by trade but interestingly I can't stand writing product reviews. However, I had to write about these amazing tires because I spent about 6 months researching tires before I made the purchase and the BFG KO2s exceeded expectation. I live in Wisconsin and the winters here are not friendly. These tires combined with the AWD on my Durango make for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

A winter/snow/ice tire is not the general purchase of a south Texas driver but after rolling my previous vehicle 2 years ago in an ice event in Colorado my wife insisted that I purchase some dedicated winter tires if we drove out to Colorado again. All I can say is thanks for the missus being so insistent. I purchased a set of these tires for our 2015 Subaru...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

When the long term winter forecast for Western Washington called for a severe winter by our standards I decided to spring for a dedicated set of winter tires due to my 37 mile one way daily commute. Based on the recommendation of TIRERACK ,I chose a narrower tire with taller sidewall than the stock 205/55 R16. The choice to purchase 195/65 R15 Michellin...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I bought those tires mostly on the basis of other reviews. I didn't want to buy a dedicated snow tire/wheel set for my M5 and wanted something to work in snow and summer.Bottom line, this tire's traction in snow is very decent... On ice, it's not that good as I expected. The ride is soft and cornering isn't that great but again this is an all season tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I've been looking for a good All Season to replace my stock pirellis on my camaro, and I was mainly looking at the DWS for the snow performance because I like to enjoy my car year round and needed my car to atleast be drivable but these tires blew me away! I first got them a day before a snow storm so I really put them to the test and let met tell you that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver LTX

I purchased these tires based on Michelin's reputation. I am a bit biased because I will only buy Michelin tires based on their excellent traction. The tires I replaced were the original tires on my Tacoma 4X4. The original tires were pretty much new, with only 10k miles on them. When I saw The Tire Rack had these Michelin Energy Saver tires on sale, I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Bought them used on rims that fit my car, they are the skinniest option offered for my car. second winter I've had them on now and they work great on the unplowed roads I often encounter driving home from work at 4 A.M. I recently found a second set of stock rims for my wife's van and plan to buy a set for that as well.   Read More

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

The factory tires that came on the Honda did not provide good winter weather traction and were very noisy. These General tires are awesome. Great winter weather traction and very quiet. Honda should install these tires at the factory. We will buy this brand again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Big fan of Tire Rack, since 1997 every single tire we have purchased has been from Tire Rack. NOW onto the tire review. WOW! Amazing how this tire performs! We've had mixed snow, rain, and some dry road surface condition. The last set of tires we had, more or less took a dive due to control arms and out tie rod ends needing to be replaced and a 4 way...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

We were planning a 3500 mile cross country drive and I knew I wasn't going to be safe with the bowling balls my car came with (I bought it used, these were not original equipment tires but budget-minded replacements). I went with the Pirellis based on Tire Rack's review and I am very pleased. Quiet, smooth, comfortable, with remarkable wet traction. These...  Read More

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

Drove through the mountains in Washington State and Western Canada right after purchasing these tires, and they handled the snow well. Obviously these are not winter tires, but they are so good, I see no reason to buy winter tires for the amount I drive in the snow.If you have an AWD vehicle and do not drive a long way every day in deep snow, these tires...  Read More

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
