Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

Don't know what everyone is complaining about. I have met numerous Santa Fe owners ('13>'15) who all praise the car and these optional tires on the AWD Sport Turbo. Driven in some horrible snow storms, some with blizzard conditions and never had any problems. Ice? Scarey no matter what you drive with whatever tire. These held their own. Wet Traction has been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4

Michelins came as OE on 2011 Accord EX-L. Best set of tires I've ever owned and couldn't believe they lasted to almost 100,000 miles. Consistently rotated tires with each oil change (about every 8-9K) at Honda dealer. Couldn't have been happier with a set of tires and working on my 2nd set -- hope that they'll last for the car's 2nd 100K miles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've had these tires for a couple of weeks. The original tires on my XK were death traps. It was impossible to move the car if there was any snow or ice. I mean even a hint. THe car slid or stood still. When it was time for new rubber, (24,500 miles) I knew I had to get an all weather tire.The dealer suggested Michelin Pilot all weather. Of course they also...  Read More

We got rid of X ice 2's (they were used with Buick rims from an old dealer)... a good ice tire but Blizzak has the winter edge. the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Rosso

This is the best way to get new tires on your car. The price was unbeatable. I ordered 4 new ones online. TireRack shipped them directly to my local NTB and I simply went there to have them installed. Mercedes dealer did not have these in stock so I was looking for them online. So glad I found TireRack.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

I have replaced this tire 2 times for a blow out simply by just driving over my driveway. Now I got a flat. For someone that has a 2 1/2 year old car with 11,000 miles goes to show the type of driver I am. I live in the city not out on some dirt road that has more possibilities for a tire to go bad. I was with my family on a day trip to Long Beach, CA about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Without a doubt, this is one of the BEST tires I have ever used on a vehicle! I have about 10K miles on it now & the tread wear is perfect along with the ride & performance. I recently drove from Lancaster PA to Richmond VA in the late winter storm that hit in late Feb and had ZERO issues in several inches of snow and in ice. The ride is smooth and noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP31 A/S

While many of these reviews are negative, this one is my own experiences with this tire and it has not been an overall negative one. I purchased my 2011 Honda Insight EX used at a year old and since that time, I have put just about 30,000 miles on the tires now in th two years I have own it. Living in New England, I experience every realm of weather one can...  Read More

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

When I drove my brand new 2011 Outback home from the dealers lot in Chicago to east Central Indiana, I wondered if I had made the worst purchase decision of my life. I had bought the car with plenty of research, and in town test driving, but I had never had it on the interstate, on top of that day 1 was windy. To say I was directionally challenged would be...  Read More

Michelin vs Goodyear Tires

Even those who have not done much research into tires recognize the Goodyear and Michelin brands. Being respected brands and household names, they're often sought out by shoppers as a primary choice. Decades of experience designing and manufacturing tires have given both companies a well-deserved reputation.   In order to maintain their good names, major...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Purchased a week before a 5 day blizzard hit the Great Smokey Mountain. These tires drive through drifts over the bumper with out getting stuck. Yes it's 4WD but it's only a Pilot SUV; if it had been on a real 4WD Pickup, I think it would handled everything. Here in Tennessee, they don't bank corners in the road but allow them to roll with the lay of the...  Read More

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

My IS-350 has the staggered fitment: 225-40/18 and 255-40/18. I average 17K miles annually, mostly highway with aggressive city driving. I wanted summer tire performance with better wear and I hoped that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's would deliver.I bought the car used and the dealer installed Firestone Wide Ovals on the front and Fierce Instincts on the rear. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

This is the OEM tire on my Lincoln MKX. I've actually been happy with this tire and it has given superb performance. I have noticed over the past 5K miles or so that it's beginning to get a bit noisy (especially in the rear of the vehicle) over certain road surfaces. Where it used to hiss it now roars. Concurrent with the increased road noise I have noticed...  Read More

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

we replaced the original tires with these I can't express enough how much better these are. Both summer and winter driving and we live in northern Michigan. even with all the snow we had last winter, we had no problem going anywhere. Stopping and starting in snow was no problem. I would definitely recommend these to anyone. Just had car in for service and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

As I was having the tires installed, the temp. dropped from 30 degrees down to 12 degress... All day it had been lightly raining and snowing on and off... When the temp drop so suddenly, the roadways turned to ice and the Lake Michigan snow machine started to near whiteout conditions. These tires were and are remarkable as my 6-speed manual Jetta responded...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

The testing and the results posted from Tire Rack helped my decision to get these tires. I chose them because of the results for snow traction as well as the overall results. Very happy with them, especially considering all of the snow we've gotten lately. They seem to handle better in the deeper snow than a small amount though. They handle rain with no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Great buy! better than Michelin for sure. Gas mileage is down but is okay. better handling,steering, wet traction, good in snow . Tire look great sporty look. happy with tires so far. My old Michelin cracked on the side just after one year purchase car new, dealer said call Michelin, Michelin give me run around, and refuse to stand by their product. I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I'm writing this review after so few miles only because the WS80 is new this year and user reviews are few and far between, especially for RWD. Plus we've had quite a range of conditions over the last 3 weeks: rain, standing water, slush, -10F icy roads, a snowfall of 4 and several lighter dustings. So I can offer more than they were great on the 10 mile...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2

I purchased the Goodyear F1 Asymmetric 2 to replace the Goodyear F1 Supercar OEM tires on my 2010 Mustang GT500. I purchased my GT500 with 15K miles on the car and put another 2K miles on the stock F1's over the past year. The original tires still had 3/32 to 4/32 tread but they just did not seem to hook up at all, especially bad when supercharger enaged...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

The Acura came with Michelin Latitude Tour all season tires. Within a year, the car had developed an annoying drone sound that was really noticeable after 35 mph. The dealer couldn't find the cause so we lived with the noise rather than spend more time at the dealership. We travel a lot so we got used to the dull roar, but when our kids drove the car, they...  Read More
