Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Symmetry

After 55,000 on this set of Symmetrys, I traded in my Cadillac. These tires were bought, because the OEM Michelin Symmetrys went 98,000 miles! These tires were wonderful. The Cadillac suspension is very precise because of the construction of the suspension pieces. There is no variance or slop and play in the suspension. For that reason, the tires can work as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I purchased these replacements for the oem Goodyear LS tires when my Cadillac STS hit 70,000 miles. I drive the STS with alacrity through the pot holed, cracked, cratered, and earthquake-heaved streets and freeways of greater LA, as well as on extended road trips / ski trips throughout the mountainous regions of the western states, and I found the oem LS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4

These tires came with my Cadillac and have provided excellent wear and performance. There is still quite a lot of tread remaining and they do not show any cracks. However one of the tires has developed a annoying whomping sound like it has a flat spot and a scrubbing feeling while turing and accelerating. The whomp is especially noticable at city speeds (30...  Read More

Best Tire Options for Tahoes, Yukons and Escalades

General Motors' best-selling full-size SUVs are all based from the same platform. These vehicles include the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and the Cadillac Escalade. There are many basic similarities between these three vehicles, including tires. The current generation of these three SUVs either came with a 17", 18" or 20" tire. Given the popularity of these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I installed these tires on my 1965 289 Mustang along with a new set of American Racing Torq Thrust chrome wheels. I have 225 45 ZR 17s on the front on 17x7 wheels and 235 45 ZR 17s on the rear on 17x8 wheels. What a huge difference over the 15x7 wheels and off-brand tires on the car before! The biggest difference I see is in the turn-in rate. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4

OEM tires for my 2005 Cadillac STS V8 and were the worst tires I've ever owned.....and that's saying a lot because I am a comitted Michelin Man / Fan. Horrible traction - even dry not great, but wet and you were all over the place and snow and ice? Forget it. The car stayed in the garage. Worst part for me was the noise and harshness of the ride. I'm driving...  Read More

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

I purchased this car used. I'm sure these were the original tires. They corner, hold and respond when I ask. It's nice to have a high performance tire that also works in snow and wet conditions. These are probably the best tires I've ever ridden on. I'm purchasing another set for my Cadillac CTS and considering the same ones for my wife's Fusion although I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

3rd set coming up on my 175k Durango in Northern Virginia's dry, wet, snow, & ice. I can't speak for other vehicles, but this match-up is the best I can imagine. Whether on the farm in mud, or steep dirt/gravel driveway with snow and ice --- I have no complaints and only applause for these tires. The 21A/crushed run (pointed)gravel has only cause me two...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I use my truck to commute to and from work, and in all kinds of weather. When my last set was getting low on tread, I realized I bought these tires about 65K to 75K miles ago!During the NE winter of 2010-2011, I frequently drove wife and myself into work; at this point these tires had 35-45% tread left. That winter hit us so hard and unexpected, the highways...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

The tires are original to a Cadillac I bought in January 2012. Of the four original tires one had to be replace at 58,000KMs for a bulge that developed. It was an 8 year old tire. All the other tires have good tread remaining but now 9 years old I am going to replace them all.I live in a climate that varies between -/+ 40C and that it hard on a tire. I know...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

These Contis were replacements for the OEM tires on our Cadillac SRX4. Got an almost unbeleivable number of miles out of the Michelins (+/- 60K) but I didn't think they were worth the premium charged. I stayed with the slightly different sizes front and back that came with the vehicle. They are quiet and have excellent traction. I did get marginally better...  Read More

Load Range E 10 Ply Tires for Heavy Duty Use

In a recent blog post titled "Goodyear Marathon Radial vs. Power King Towmax STR Trailer Tires," I covered the difference between two trailer tires we carry. Now, what about the tires used on the trucks to pull those trailers? Many full-sized pickups and cargo vans require load range E tires. If your pickup truck or van is a 2500 or 3500 (commonly called 3/4...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

WOW, these tires on a RWD Cadillac are absolutely incredible. I bought these about 2.5-3 months ago and since then it has snowed 3 times and I could actually drive without sliding around. On my old tires, I could barley get enough traction to get moving let alone get some to stop without sliding and spinning out in the snow, there was one time I spun out 6...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

I'll begin by saying I've only put about 500 miles on these tires so they are still new, but so far I am loving them! I bought the CTS for it's blend if ride and handling and I drive it the way it was engineered to be driven, not the way a typical Cadillac driver does(i.e. I drive it rather hard!). The stock Michelins on the car were a grand touring tire and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These are by far the smoothest riding tires I have ever had. I drive excessively and make bi-weekly trips threw WV in all types of weather on all types of roads, from highway to curvy mountain roads. I have had them for 12 months and put them through over 50K miles of very aggressive driving. I've never had a tire that feels this comfortable in heavy rain,...  Read More
