Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I purchased these to replace the factory Continental ContiProContacts. These have a noticeably slower steering response and require more input around an exit ramp but nothing worth giving it a negative remark. I had expected this when reading reviews between this tire and the Primacy MXM4. I decided on these due to a slightly lower price but mostly due to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Tire handled great in summer, spring and fall driving conditions in Northern California. In icey road conditions and light snow the tire was good. Deep snow the tire was ok, but perhaps it was the lightness of the Honda Accord. I definately would have purchased another set but evidently this tire has been recalled for unknown reason and were not available.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

Tire rack timed out my review. Not going to retype the whole thing. These are the best snow tires I've ever had. Best tires I've ever had in snow and rain and I worked at Timberline Lodge for several years in addition to snow sports so I have plenty of experience driving in winter conditions and on many different tires.Drove 1600 miles and through the rain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Put this on Labor Day weekend on my 2006 Azera. I've racked up 12,000 miles on them so far. Love these tires. They are incredible in the rain and going through ponding on roadways. I use this car to commute 110 miles a day to work. They have been great at road holding, corning, comfort and grip. This is a large high output V-6 front driver and though you can...  Read More

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

Only have about 1200 miles on these tires but am very pleased soo far. I lived in Wyoming and it is winter here so most of the miles are on snow packed or ice covered highways or on graveled ranch roads with up to 5 inches of snow. I have made a couple of 300 mile road trips and am very impressed with the smooth ride and lack of road noise. I am compareing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

First thing first, I,,replaced the O.E.tires(Bridgestone Dueler),that came with my vehicle when I purchased it. Those tires were not going to survive winter driving conditions.Regardless of your all-wheel-drive system, the most important factor in poor driving conditions, is tire traction.I, previously had excellent experience with Continental A/S DWS, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is my first set of winter tires on this car, and my first set of studless winter tires. On previous vehicles, I used studdable winter tires such as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 1 and the Firestone Winterforce. While those performed fine in winter conditions, they were definitely noisy and rough riding. Not so with the Blizzaks. The ride is smooth and while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I used these tires on a '94 Corolla in Florida (wet/humid/hot) and up in Maryland (dry/cold/snow). Moreover, I decided to put hydrogen in the tires per the dynamic enironment changes.It's been about 5000 miles with them and I'm very impressed. Normally, I use Continentals but decided to try these Michellins for the first time. I highly recommend this tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

In terms of noise, these tires are a vast improvement over the previous Goodyear Triple Tread ones, with equal or better snow and ice traction, though somewhat lower steering response. Can't make any comment on wear as yet, since they are relatively new.   Read More

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

I bought this tires for my wife's car I have nothing but good things to say about this tire. The tire has great wet and dry traction but I haven't been in snow or ice with the tires yet. The only things I can say negative about the tire is that they are just a tad louder than the oem tire on the car but I had to pay attention and drive with the radio off to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I have had this set of winter tires for three years now. I would absolutely recommend this tire to anyone, I have never been stuck in any amount of snow, can stop and start almost as well as in the summer and the response time is fantastic. I researched all tires on this site but thins one rated better on everything, and it was no lie. I couldn't be happier...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Incredible tire does extremely well in dry, wet or snow. Provides a level of security knowing that your tire can handle extreme weather. I drive a custom Dodge Challenger and this tire is a perfect match for the performance. Plus Tire Rack's pricing on this tire and their servicing makes it a no brainer.   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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

This is the 4th set of these I've owned, and the first for this car. We've now had the car for 5 months and when purchased it had new Continentals on it. Needless to say, our intention was to replace them prior to purchase. One week later we did and are now happy with how the car was meant to be.Road noise is minimal from the tire as wind noise overtakes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I have never owned a set of snow tires. We just had a storm here in NJ; I cannot believe a set of tires could provide such a high level of confidence and reassurance! My RWD 128 I Sport moved through ice and snow with impunity. The car literally feels glued to the hard packed icy road. The tires communicate the level of traction; you no longer have that...  Read More
