Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

Just got these on my 2017 VW Alltrack. I live in Quebec City, Canada and winters are what you'd expect them to be...lots of snow, occasional ice storms, etc. etc.So far these tires are excellent and I have no complaints whatsoever. Obviously the fact that my car has AWD helps for traction, but I feel like these tires are excellent nonetheless. I've driven in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I recently purchased these tires to replace my Continental DWs, and they are awesome. I drive on a lot of twisty backroads with wet patches and so far these tires have been excellent. I just did a 1,000 mile car rally with these and they performed flawlessly in the dry and wet and were quiet. On top of all that, they look really good with a nice round...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Road noise is horrible. Took it to the Mercedes dealer who checked out the whole car, they said the bearings were fine, the tires were balanced and the steering aligned, but because of the aggressive tread that the noise level is very high. Have always been a fan of Continental tires, but they missed on this one.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Big fan of Tire Rack, since 1997 every single tire we have purchased has been from Tire Rack. NOW onto the tire review. WOW! Amazing how this tire performs! We've had mixed snow, rain, and some dry road surface condition. The last set of tires we had, more or less took a dive due to control arms and out tie rod ends needing to be replaced and a 4 way...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Have had these tires for 20,000 miles, and in my opinion offer some of the best dry and wet traction I've experienced. I feel very confident with these tires. So far, wear has been good with proper rotate and balance, pressure, etc. If all goes well, I see 45,000 on these tires. Will update later. As for snow, these have been more than adequate in hard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

We are into our third winter with Michelin's on our relatively low mileage Audi S4. The tires have been fine--better than previously owned Dunlops and Continentals (for other cars). My only concern with the Michelins is traction in curves. I've noticed that they are a bit slippery in a snow covered, off- camber turn that we go through frequently. On the...  Read More

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

At long last, I've found my tire: an ultra high performance all-season tire that optimizes the performance of Audi's Quattro AWD on trips to the mountains, without numbing the car's handling and steering response on the dry roads that dominate daily driving here in LA. I've only had the Michelins a couple weeks, but immediately took them on a 1,000 mile road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I have only driven these on dry days(only time I take my car out). But they are amazing so far. I have a full exhaust on my air cooled 911 so the car is noisy itself. I don't hear any tire noise. I'm coming off Continental sport contact tires and these blow them out of the water in terms of grip. I can't seem to break the rear end loose anymore even pushing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Stop reading reviews on other brands and BUY these tires! I have been a Continental customer for 10 years now and whenever I buy a new car I treat myself and the car to a new set of Conti's. These are by far THE BEST all season they have ever created... It handles everything well from dry, wet, loose gravel, mud and snow! We had a storm today that left 6 and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

These Conti True Contacts are the 3rd set of tires on this car. First 2 were Goodyear Assurance ComforTred (not Touring) and Hankook Optimo H727. Both were decent. I got cupping on the H727's and it's too early to tell if that will be an issue on the Conti's - but the wear is very slow so far. After only 17k miles, I love the TrueContacts. They are extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I live in the midwest in a state that is known for encountering quickly changing weather. I need to be prepared to drive in all types of weather conditions. Hot,cold, below zero temps,dry, wet, ice, light and deep snow, we get it all. I am a have been a huge Yokohama fan and was set to purchase some for my (new to me) '13 Azera. After much consideration,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced OEM Run Flat tires with these new tires. Seems like it is a different car with the road feel and performance. I will never purchase Run Flat tires again after this experience.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

Well, I have only had these tires for a couple of days (the OEM Yokahama G91F's were completely worn at 30k miles) but Mother Nature threw a great test storm at us on Christmas Eve here in the Central Highlands of Arizona around Prescott. We went from heavy rain and 40 degrees to heavy, wet snow and upper 20's all in the space of a couple of hours. I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought the Continental WinterContact tires mounted on 17 Axis Modle Five gunmetal wheels from Tire Rack as seasonal replacements that I can swap in my garage. The wheels look better than my stock Audi S3 18 wheels. I mounted them three weeks ago and have already driven in three snow storms in Portland, Oregon and Washington. I'm shocked at how well they...  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Purchased these tires last year, and have experienced everything from snow/slice/ice to dry pavement in them. They have exceeded my expectations in every possible way, and I consider them to be a major upgrade over the OEM Dunlops my car came with.I was a bit concerned going with an UHP All Season compared to a set of dedicated snow tires, but I wasn't let...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased my second set of continental DWS tires today at the Tire Rack. I live in South Bend Indiana about five minutes away from their location. My rear tires were worn down to where the S was gone. This morning I drove over to their office in a snowstorm and could barely make it there. With the new tires installed I drove home in the same conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I put Continental ExtremeContactDWS06 RS5 275/30/R20 on the rs5. This is the can be the best option on those cars. Especially in winter time. Good traction in -20 degree, and covered road conditions. Is not as well as Winter tires, but it can performed 85% of them. The only disadvantage is that you can not push the car to the limited as summer tires in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season

These are the OEM tire that came with my car. I do have a lead foot but I am not doing a burn out at every or rarely any read lights. They only last me less than a year. I ordered the same ones again and again less than one year later I am at the warning bars. I just ordered some Continental G-Max that are suppose to have better threadwear. Will see but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Take this review with a grain of salt as I just had these tires installed. I had quite a few different tires on my 6 years BMW 128i and that car being as tactile as it is, I can immediately feel a the difference from a tire to another with it. I just swapped my summer tires (Continental Extreme Contact DW, which I adore) for these for getting prepared for...  Read More
