Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Hot Springs Village, AR. Curvy country roads. Lots of fun even in an SUV. Lexus RX-350 AWD. Got them in Feb 14. Saw a little light snow, had no problems. Light and heavy rain was also no problem. These tires are great. They go where you point them. They hold the road well. Are very quiet. Gives a good stable feeling. I used to be a Michelin man, but no more....  Read More

Tire racks review of this tire was bang on. Very happy with the tire like driving a new SUV. Handling and steering and drive comfort are great. Toyo tires which came with the vehicle never handle properly and in wet weather did not have confident in them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I am ridiculously happy with these tires. They have been on the car for nearly 2.5 years and 35K miles. The DWS in the tread is still all visible; S is supposed to disappear first, indicating that snow use is not advised. Our WA freeways are pretty rough, so they are a little noisy, but on a smooth surface they are still very quiet. I have more issue with...  Read More

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

It's true that these tires can suffer from being out of round. When I first had these mounted and balanced, I got the dreaded hobble. BUT I took them back to my installer and they road forced them, dismounted them, turned them on the wheel, rebalanced them, and they're about as perfect as you can get now. I saw the numbers on the balancer myself because my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

We needed affordable yet excellent performing winter tires for my wifey's SUV. In Canada these tires are almost twice the price, so we drive over the boarder and have them installed by one of Tire Racks suggested garages to save serious $$$. The tires do very well in our snowy winters in Southern Ontario. The best attribute of these tires are the...  Read More

All-Season Tires for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG

With sophisticated all-wheel drive, traction control and weighing 5,622 pounds, you'd expect the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG to dominate in the snow. Surprisingly, this isn't the case because there are no all-season or winter tire choices made in the vehicle's 275/50R20 Original Equipment size.  Do you own one of these amazing SUVs, but a few inches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Will go ahead and post my initial impressions: These Contis immediately improved the overall ride over my previous tires (Uniroyal Tiger Paws). I've only had them on a few months but have been able to go through the paces through Idaho winter. Really really impressed with snow and hard packed ice road traction. Very confident in wet or dry handling.Fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I have tried many different tires on many different cars and SUV's over the last 3 decades, never have I come across such a well rounded tire that does EVERYTHING so well. If I am to nit pick, these are just slightly noisier on some roads and do not corner as well as BFG's do, but I'll trade that any day for what I gained. Snow and Ice traction is superb....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination ST

I've never really been a fan of the asymmetrical tread designs, so was a bit nervous about getting these tires. I have tried many tires on my Mercedes R350 and these Firestones are at least as good as the Michelin Latitude Tour HP and better than the Continental 4X4 Contact. The ride they give is very solid but smooth. Handling is excellent, given the large...  Read More
