Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

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

12/14/13 - I just picked up my car, and with several inches of snow last night and snowing this morning, I was able to test these new tires in wet, slush, light snow, and thick snow on my drive home. These tires are unbelievablely great!!! I tested the tires from 40mph to a stop. In wet and slush conditions, I was not able to activate my ABS no matter how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

Ok, this is actually the first time I do an online review, because these tires deserve it. First off, I have a 2011 Nissan versa that came with ContiProContact 185/65 R15 (Horrible tires: very noisy, poor performance, and the rubber started cracking at around 20K miles.I replaced the four tires with the BF 195/65 R15 and I feel the difference right away....  Read More

Michelin's new campaign has us going down memory lane to the time we got our first car. Whether it was handed down to you by your parents, or you worked a few jobs to earn it, none of us will forget the feeling of owning our first car. I got my first Jeep as a Christmas present back when I was in college and home visiting my parents. It was Christmas morning...  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 Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

These are excellent tires for mixed winter conditions. The road to our local ski area climbs 3000+ feet in 16 miles of 2 lane curvy road from sagebrush desert to the pine forest. In the last two days, the road conditions include dry, wet, ice, wet snow, compacted snow, hard packed snow, and new snow on top of all of the above... Two cars rolled into the...  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 BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires on a 2008 Acura TSX as replacements for the OEM Michelin's. The reason for the purchase of these over the OEMs was because of the good online reviews and price difference.I consider myself somewhat of a spirited driver at times. I have no complaints regarding the handling, braking, and comfort of these tires. They've gotten me through...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza G 019 Grid

Okay, I am not into the rogue specifics of tires as I am not a mechanic nor car expert, just a commuting, high-mileage, everyday driver. I purchased these as a part of a closeout deal and the Turanzas I wanted were not in stock. Before purchasing, I read reviews online and found more good comments than bad - I simply should've listened. I drive an everage of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I bought this set after reading reviews online and was more geared towards reliability. After getting them installed, I could tell right away how much quieter, responsiveness, and clean (with a notable brand name) looking this set is. I haven't put that much time on these tires and the weather here in KS is pretty unpredictable. I will always have backup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I bought four of these tires in November 2010. At the time, I didn't know how many more times our Escape would be able to pass inspection. I'd had great results with Michelin Cross Terrains, but didn't want to spend the extra money that Michelins would cost.The Generals worked very well for us. We drive on the spirited side, with a pretty even mix of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

The perfect winter tire. I replaced my all-seasons with a set of these and now I can drive with confidence in the snow. I researched snow tires to death before I decided on these and it was a great decision. When I'm buying tires I spend almost too much time researching online because of the high expense and I want the best for my money. You cant beat the...  Read More

When you call Tire Rack to purchase your tires, you'll speak with an expert who...  Read More

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

After reading online about another Scion XD owner getting the Pirelli P7 Plus in 215/55/16 I decided to try them out. WOW! What an incredibly smooth, and well handling tire. My little Scion no longer feels bouncy, or harsh over bad roads. I glide down the road with precision steering control. A much appreciated change in my cars handling, and ride comfort....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

After having Pirelli's on my Volvo C70 that were horrible, I am exceedingly pleased with the MXM4's. The car rides like a new vehicle. Great control on wet roads with a crisp and comfy ride on dry. Very quiet too. My husband did not like to drive the car before because the Pirelli's were a rough ride. Now he loves my car! Cannot recommend these tires enough...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Precision Touring

First of all, I ordered these on the 15th, and received them at my front door on the 16th! Keep in mind, this was through UPS standard shipping. Completely blew my mind. Granted, I haven't put many miles on this set, but I can say that they are a definite improvement from the stock Michelins that came on the car when we bought it new from the dealer.Excellent...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I cannot believe there are no reviews on this tire anywhere online! When I was searching for winter tires for my M3 I really wanted a tire that would get me through light or heavy snow, but with a strong emphasis on not sacrificing dry cold conditions. I was tempted to go with a Blizzak LM-60, but there were a few reasons I decided not to.1. The factory...  Read More

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

What a difference! I had a missed matched pair of Dunlops on the front and Nittos on the back when I bought the car used a year ago. Road noise is down at least 50% although the Z51 package does not help matters which is fine with me. Straight line traction and braking is fantastic. Cornering is predictable and grip is light-years better than the junk that...  Read More
