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

If you have an Infiniti Q50 with the runflat OEMs, you have no idea what this car can actually do. I've read good reviews on this tire after extensive research and it seemed like a good fit for this car; as I was very disappointed in how the car preformed with the OEM tires. I almost didn't get the Q50 because of the ride it delivered stock.These tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I did a lot of research before purchasing these tires. I previously had Blizzaks on my old truck but went with these as I could buy the rims and tires for the price of the Blizzaks. I prefer them, and I never thought I would.I love these tires! It usually only snows a few times a year but when it does we need to be able to get around as they don't plough the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

I purchased a 2013 Ford Explorer 4x4 in December 2012. It came with Michelin Latitude Touring tires 245/60R-18. These are probably the worse tires to put on an SUV and after reading a lot of reviews possibly any car. I went through two Cleveland winters with them and refused to take on another. I consider these Michelins to be absolutely treacherous in snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Purchased these tires for a spare set of rims I had in December. Put them on and we had no snow until late January here in MA. Now we're going on 5 feet of snow. These are on my wife's Equinox and she loves them. I've noticed they are outstanding in the snow, slush, and even DEEP snow these tires really help the car power through. What a difference compared...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Got these due to moving to Denver from Washington DC...all seasons were getting worn, so saving them for spring/summer driving and got these for fall/winter. So glad we did. We live halfway between Denver and Colorado Springs along I-25 and my wife drives to Colorado Springs for work a lot. She has done it a couple of times in snowstorms and on a couple of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I bought these to upgrade to larger rims to give me more grip and stability. My Camaro is now equipped with a 2002 spec Corvette Z06 LS6 motor and I needed more grip. The car's handling is responsive like it was riding on rails and taking the twistys is done with confidence. I have only put a small amount of mileage on them so far, and highway cruising is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

For my Mazda 6 wagon, these tires have met or exceeded expectations. I wanted a good handling, quiet tire that would wear well and be good in the wet and occasional snow. During dry and wet weather, they are very smooth in transition during hard cornering without a lot of squealing and drama. I am very pleased with the handling, accepting that these are not...  Read More

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

This is a review for both the General Tires and Anzio Wave wheels I purchased together.Chances of me ever walking in to any Tire Service Center and buying tires again are pretty darn slim. Granted, if I were out of town miles away from home and really needed a new tire I guess I would go ahead and get it done. But getting tires and wheels (rims)...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I purchased these in 1/9/09 so these have almost 4 winters on them. I purchased them because this is the car my bride drives 15 miles to work each day. One day I pulled out of my driveway with less than 2 of snow, (using 3 month old BS Turanza Serenity A/S tires. I was shocked the car had no control when starting from a stop; directing me toward the curb. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

So far, so good. Over the summer months I had these tires, they gripped tremendously. I believe these tires are too much tire for the car. Only having 110hp makes for most tires to stick pretty well. However, the car always went where I pointed the front tires, other than when I started plowing the front tires in gravel. Pavement, however, is great. Just had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Made the Hybred into a unstoppable Tank only limit was ground clearance as I pushed snow over hood of car. Let s face it, it is only 5 inches off the ground it was only limited by the clearance. I have them on a take off rims so only put them on in the winter I get 3 seasons out of them! Everybody is stuck on hills and I drive around them!   Read More

Are Sport Edition Wheels Good?

Yes! They may not equal the high style and lightweight of the more expensive wheel lines like BBS, O.Z. Racing and Enkei Racing Series, but for many drivers, the Sport Edition wheels are a great lower cost option. Sport Edition offers aluminum alloy wheels that have durable painted with clearcoat finishes offered in a variety of colors and styles.   One...  Read More

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

Fantastic tire, so far! The car came with Conti ProContacts...that were shot at 25k miles, then tried a set of Pirelli P7 that came on some rims that I bought for winter....Immediately after I put the Michelins on, the car handled better, better ride, less noise...better in every aspect! I wish that I would have ditched the Contis a long time ago for these....  Read More

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

I bought these tires and a set of 18 Hyundai rims to replace the 19 factory wheels on the car. I had two hydroplaning incidents and a terrible ride quality during my first 10,000 miles. The change was like night to day. The cars ride quality was 50% better along with an improved feel in cornering an no issues in some extreme rain and 6 deep standing water! I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

In five years my search was for a QUIET and SMOOTH RIDING tire. The stock tire is 235/55/20. I run this size in the winter on the stock rims. In the summer, I run 255/50/20's on custom rims.The OEM Toyo's were...acceptable. Ride and noise were about a 6 or 7. First set of larger summer tires were Nitto NT-420S's. First year was about the same as the Toyos....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A Spec

I bought these three years ago along with a new set of rims. Shipping from Tirerack was great, and I loved that they came inflated, on the rims. I just slapped them on the car. They handled well, I always felt like they performed great. They are now producing a wumpwumpwump sound at medium speeds, so I'm thinking about replacing them. They still have 3/32...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Purchased these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone Turanza EL 400-2 marginally worn tires, because of their poor wet handling performance in standing water at highway speeds. In my first 2500 miles with the Continental Pure Contacts, they performed flawlessly in heavy downpours at 70 MPH, and in dry conditions are smoother and quieter-riding than the OE...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Bought a set of these for my Subaru outback because I was not happy with the winter traction, braking and steering in snow with the all-season radials. The michelin winter tires transformed the car! Traction was improved, but the biggest difference is braking, straight line stability and cornering in snow or slush. With all season tires the subarus have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I replaced the OEM tires with these DWS Extreme. First week, I hated it. The ride and handling doesn't seem right. It turns out I need to have qualified tire center to mount and balance. A co-worked told me to go to a performance shop to have it remount and balance with a Hunter road force balance machine. The ride and handling is much better (almost like a...  Read More
