Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I have about 22-23k on this DriveGuard tires, and I can honestly say they are THE BEST tires I've ever owned. This car came with Continental tires from the factory, and they worked, but didn't do anything specially great. I would consider them a middle of the road tire. Since then I had a set of Goodyear's which had a good price, but were really sub standard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I can't believe how long these tires last! They've got over twenty thousand miles of them and they still have over 8/32 remaining! They're very smooth with only the slightest tread noise on brand new asphalt. They soak up imperfections quite well. In addition to all of the functional greatness, they're a really attractive tire!My only complaint was that when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is a dream tire from the low rolling resistance which gives good gas mileage to the outstanding wet dry and snow performance. I have yet to encounter conditions where I had anything but the highest reliance on the handling of these tires and they have come through like a champ in all road conditions I have encountered and all weather be it rain turning...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Although we have had these tires a relatively short time, in Colorado late winter and spring it isn't difficult to find a myriad of conditions. We live in a rural area but the wife's job takes her all over the front range. We noticed an immediate difference from our OEM Michelins. Pavement cracks are quietly and easily absorbed; wet traction after a snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

No problems currently but only have 8000 miles. I needed to replace the factory rear tires on my E 350 after only 33000 miles. Hoping these will last longer.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

Put these on about a thousand miles ago to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler that had about 26,000 on them. They had approx. 10,000 left but there was some dry rotting around tread and a noticeable decrease in performance during inclement weather. Had a gouge from the side wall in the spare so decided to just replace all the tires and did not want to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

I want to be prepared to go wherever I need to go. That means winter tires and used to mean highway all season tires the other three seasons. All season tires were marginal on wet grass, mud, no match for ice and snow, and are even threatened by sharp rocks in gravel. I have sacrificed very little to have all terrain capability with the Continental Terrain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Installing these tires immediately improved everything I liked about my car. Replacing the original equipment Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP runflats with the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 dramatically improved the ride and noise - no more crashing over bumps that jarred me and scared my passengers. Regular road noise went way down and the tramlining went...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PS91

I changed the stock Continental ContiSport tires on my A3 Sedan at around 2,000 miles since I was unhappy with the grip they had, the car would just wheelspin all the time, triggering traction control, and on turns the car would push excessively on corner entry. After deciding many different options looking at forums and friends' advice, I decided to go with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Replaced the Michelin OEM tires with these. Didn't really see any change in mpg but they are much quieter and handled great. I'm talking mini van handling not sedan. Only now with 67k on them have they begun to sqeal on corners, but there's only 3/8 tread left. Really loved the comfort level and smoothness over the entire life of tire. Would buy again....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I live near Buffalo NY. We get a few snow storms each year, and the roads get extremely slippery and icy. Its only a few days each year, but you don't want to get in to an accident on one of those days.My wife bought a set of these True Contact tires a year and a half ago and as we approach the end of the second winter with them I am absolutely amazed at how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

So far so good - only 100 miles into my relationship with the Premier LTX but color me impressed thus far.I replaced a horribly worn set of Continentals with these. The Continentals were OK in a lot of categories - I got 50,000 miles out of them, and they provided adequate traction in most all situations; however, the amount of road noise they generated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

Bought 4 Kuhmo tires for spouse's Accord and was pleasantly surprised how good they are performing (Ecsta PA 31) so I went back for more Kuhmo's for my daughter's Chevy Cruze. Installed set of 4 Kuhmo Solas TA-71's for her 2014 Chevy Cruze 2LT. Amazing to hear and feel the difference from the OEM Continental ProContacts to the Kuhmo's. Tires feel solid and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

While I have just recently had the tires installed I have found them to be very good and better than the Continentals that came with the car. So far all aspects of the tire have been better that the original tires and I would not hesitate to purchase them again. I did have a minor vibration issue and found that the shop that installed the tires did not...  Read More

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

Low mileage so far but we had 70 degrees in February, followed by 10 inches of snow and some icy conditions then rain. Theses P7s handled everything very well. In fact In the snow they seemed as good as the Continental Winter Contacts they replaced but with a much quieter well balanced ride. My Jetta Sportwagon has no sport in it's handling demeanor but the...  Read More

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

I went back-n-forth for weeks trying to decide about which tire to buy. I finally chose to splurge for the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ over the Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06. Yes, the Michelin tires are a bit pricey, but they are definitely well worth the invest. The ride, performance, and handling are superb. I would absolutely purchase these tires...  Read More

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

There is a lot to like about this tire, but unfortunately, that is outweighed by the tires' failures. The Pirellis are VERY LOUD (road noise is about double over the OEM Continentals that came with the car) and they offer a harsh ride. I'm guessing the sidewalls are thicker than the OEM Continental 4X4s. In some aspects, the car responds better during sudden...  Read More

my comments may come across as crude 2 the faint of heart. so, i'll just say move on as i truly mean no harm. 4 those that wish 2 glean some useful info on a tire, don't waist your time reading comments on rubber with less than 7k miles - USELESS DRIBBLE! ok, so much 4 commentary how about the 06.i've had legacy dws on my lex gs 400 / 430 and ls 460 - loved...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These tires are on our 07 MB GL450. I was torn between another value tire and a good deal on the Continentals OEM. The Conti's wore out like in 15000 miles. I decided not to go with a value tire as they have not performed well, nor lasted well, nor have any decent ride quality in this vehicle. (Last value tire was a set of Hankooks) These have an 80k mileage...  Read More
