Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This review is about the DWS 06 but I've also had the earlier DWS on all 3 family cars. I loved the DWS but the DWS 06 does seem to be a worthy upgrade. Live in Massachusetts and drive to the mountains in northern NY (Adirondacks) quite a lot too. Absolutely no problem getting around in wet/dry/mild snow in MA - but I do swap on real snows for the mountains...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

The tires were great at first, But after about 15,00 they became unbearably noisy. They were so loud I thought I must have a bad wheel bearing. I just had my car inspected and was shocked to find out that it wouldn't pass because of the tires, The tires only had 18,500 miles on them. They were rotated every 5K and wore evenly, just wore out. These tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

The OEM Tires that came with the car only lasted about 38,000 miles (we use snow tires in the past two winters) Used to buy Mich. tires but found them to be too expensive. I have been with the same tire dealer for 20 years and he strongly reccomended them, I talked to his wife and she has these on her Lexis and loves them. I took a chance as they were out of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

That was enough for me ,noisy and they liked to break loose in any amount of Chicago snow and would lift up in the rain, this on an AWD vehicle.I bought DWS 06 because of the TIRE RACK review, the Infiniti dealer service managers...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Replaced OEM Dunlop at 25K miles with Ecopia due to bad ride comfort and noise level.Switched to H-rated Ecopia and immediately noticed better and softer ride on bumpy road. Road noise has been significantly reduced as I can listen to radio with volume level 2 even at 70 MPH on highway. I dislike Lexus stiff suspension on RX since I bought the car new. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance All-Season

Purchase these tires specifically because of the mileage warranty of seventy thousand miles, these are my third set of Goodyear Assurance tires on two different automobiles. Quality and warranty are important for my tires, because I treasure my family and my own safety I want to be able to depend on the tires. With the high prices of tires today and what...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H431

My experience with these tires isn't as bad as most reviews here, but definitely not what I would consider a pleasant one. Tires were OEM on my Kia Optima SXL (2.0L Turbo). I commute approximately 70 miles each day on highway speeds. Some stop-and-go with traffic. In straight-line dry acceleration/deceleration they're adequate. I really don't push the car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

Hate these tires, give me my Goodyear Eagle LS2's back. These tires are squirrelly at highway speed. They also lighten the steering in my opinion too much. The ride is rough, my mother noticed within 2 miles that I had new tires, and they weren't as smooth as the old ones (Eagle LS2). They have caused more squeaks and rattles in the car. They are no better...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the stock Goodyear Run Flats on a 2012 BMW 335i Coupe, with these and couldn't be happier. I was concerned with driving this car in the winter in the Cleveland, OH area. Although we had a relatively light winter this year, the times we did have snow these tires performed almost flawlessly. My wife has a brand new FWD Toyota Highlander, with a snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

MUST READ! Winter driving experience! Vehicle: 2007 Cobalt SS Supercharged 17PSI LSD 5-Speed Manual. (Wisconsin)Winter experience: I am highly surprised with these tires, everyone was telling me I would not move a FWD with a 45 series tire. I completely disagree! These tires are incredible!! I have driven in snow up to 5 in the worst hilly area you could...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! Continental has a home run with these tires. Comfort: The tires are much quieter than I expected for a high performance tire. They are no louder than the Goodyear RSA's that were OEM. The car is much more comfortable now over bumps. Before, I got a sharp impulse bump over uneven manholes, etc; now the bumps have a smooth flow with a lower amplitude to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

The Michelin Primacy MXV4 is the brand and model I have installed on two Honda Accords. I have bought a replacement set for both vehicles with excellent results on both. Since I prefer a tire that has exceptional handling without flat spots or cold thump, holds well in the corners and has good road feel, the Michelin MXV4 has all this and longevity as well....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I have had my Trans Am for 8 years and have gone through 3 sets of Good year eagles fi gs ds or whatever they are calling them now. The ones with the aqua v shape tread. I would have purchased again this past August but for some reason good year dropped the ball. No one had them in stock ! Unreal ! I did find a local tire dealer but I wasnt going to pay...  Read More

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

I bought these to replace the cheap Nexens the dealer had installed when I bought the truck. First impressions were fantastic! Much more responsive, much firmer ride but in a good way. I do a bit of towing an hauling and towing a car with the Nexens got a little scary at times but not with the K02s. These tires handle the weight very well even with 1000lbs...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

We had 56,000 miles on the OEM Goodyear tires and the Toyota dealer was pushing the same tires as a replacement. I decided to go with Tire Rack and the Continentals and I am really glad I did. These are quite, and really improve the ride and handling of our Prius. The Goodyears were hard, noisy, and not at all as sure-footed as these; wet or dry. We even...  Read More

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

Bridgestone Turanza EL 400 came stock on 2015 Lexus GS 350 F Sport. I knew the tire had an unusually stiff sidewall and was prone to flat spots because cars on the dealer's lot had flat spots when I test drove them. I expected to replace the Bridgestones come winter but the ride was just too harsh and I decided not to wait. These Bridestone tires are not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I'm fanatical about maintaining grip. This is my 4th set of Assurance Comfort Treads. Live in Michigan and use them year round. I buy primarily for snow/ice traction and long wear. Bought these immediately after buying the car as the tires that came from the dealer were extremely poorly rated here at Tire Rack. Currently also have them on a Subaru Outback...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Bought these tires to replace other Continental tires I had on my car which lasted 40,000 miles. Was pretty satisfied with them so after speaking with a Tire Rack sales associate, decided to stick with what works for my car. Associate and I agreed on Conti PureContact w/eco plus tech. Love the convenience now of website offering local dealers where tires can...  Read More
