Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (V-Speed Rated)

This is an initial review of these tires, I will be doing a follow up review once I put more miles on them. They replaced the original 16 Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S that came equipped on my Accord sedan. I had them installed and took them on a short road trip the very next day which was perfect for breaking the tires in. I didn't get to test the handling as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been completely satified with these tires!!! My Lincoln LS V8 is rear wheel drive, which proves it's own challenges in winter driving. I live in NW Ohio, and suffered a very hard winter last year. I was commuting 130 miles/day for work,,, sometimes through 6 inches of snow... and a couple times on ice!!! With those conditions I never felt as though...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

The tire is smooth, quiet and comfortable, and offers excellent traction and control in a variety of inclement weather conditions, including heavy rain and moderate snow. It's truly the ideal tire for what I drive (an underpowered all wheel drive sedan), how I drive, and where I drive (central New Jersey). I very much doubt, though, that the tire would be...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Put these on my wife's car because Blizzaks were sold out and cheaper than Michelins. Nokians weren't available at the time, so I figured I was settling with this tire. I've been pretty surprised. These are on my wife's Volvo, which is FWD until it needs all wheels, with very nanny-ish traction and stability control. The car is completely stable with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

UPDATE to my 12/02/14 review. I took my car back to the tire center and they took it for a test ride (which they don't normally do when installing tires only) and found a bad wheel bearing. It cost me more for the bearing job than ALL the tires, but it worked to reduce the loud noise! A little disappointed they didn't find this earlier. But my rating for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I am simply amazed by the abilities of an old, light, rear wheel drive car (without a limited slip differential!) when paired with these tires. Not only is starting traction no longer an issue, the braking and skid resistance abilities of this tire seem to defy physics. I was able to *back up* a driveway steep enough that it was difficult to walk up without...  Read More

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 Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have these on a subaru impreza, and they are fantastic. between these tires and AWD, this subaru gets into our driveway (up hill, gravel, usually slushy or icy) as well or better than my F350 in 4 wheel. the only time that car stutters is if the snow is deep enough to have the car sit on the frame. unstoppable, and 20,000+ miles later, they still have TONS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I live in the country with a very long driveway and travel on country roads. So far this tire has been very good in deep snow and on ice. I have not lost any traction in moderate snow depths, or on black ice conditions. I am very impressed with the traction this tire provides in a rear-wheel, high performance car. The price is great and so far no problems in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I drive quite a bit on the highway and on back roads. I live in te real northern New York near the Canadian border. We get ice and snow. I have waited to write this report to give enough time to properly test these tires according to the other reviews I have read. I drive about 30,000 miles in a year. I have owned over 80 vehicles and have tried all tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Bought my 2009 Toyota Camry with the original tires. I was having problems for the first 2 winters until I bought the Michelin X ice. I would recommend this tire since I put the wheels on my car I had not problem at all. Sam. M Connecticut   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is a high quality snow tire that makes winters in a rear wheel drive car more comfortable. I haven't put enough miles on the tires to be a great judge of durability, and I've only driven through one significant snow event and the slushy aftermath that followed for the next few days. Although grip is improved, the traction control still activates when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

The set of four Continental Pure Contacts I purchased for my 2012 Honda Accord was one of the best decisions I have made. These tires provide a good, comfortable ride and the car handles quite nicely. The real test has been the last couple of months in snow country, which was my primary focus when buying these tires. In the snow, these tires perform very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More

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

I live in Chicago. I drive a 6 cylinder front-wheel drive pontiac. I drive the car very hard. I bought these tires after hours of research. I could not decide between a set of winter tires or good soft all season tires. I went with these because they are the highest rated all season tires on this website. I am very happy with them. I cannot say enough about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

There is not a single street car that cannot be made better by putting these tires on. The hype is real. I use these exclusively for summer tires and have a second set of winter wheels & tires. Even though the winter tires are excellent at their intended job I always can't wait for spring to put these tires back on. The ride does firm up a bit because of the...  Read More

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

Outstanding! I had Bridgestone's and Kumho's installed on this 15 year old car before. But after reading the reviews on this tires, I decided to trust the public. Man was it on the money!Before buying these Pirellis I just had the rear struts replaced. I didn't wanna write a review until I tried it in the snow around Chicago. I'm absolutely satisfied, happy...  Read More
