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 Michelin Premier A/S

The VW Tiguan comes with Continental ProContact OEM. Most drivers get about 40k out of them. They get noisy. I replaced them with the Michelin Premier A/S and what a difference! They are super quiet, very responsive, and fast. I'll update my review with what I see in terms of gas mileage.   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

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

This tire has been a fantastic upgrade over the Goodyear's I had. I am most impressed with the ride comfort. If they wear well (time will tell) these are going to be my tires of choice for a while.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

Living in lake Tahoe basin for 7 years gave me a chance to try most of the winter tires on the market-General,Firestone,Bridgestone,Goodyear,Continental and many many others.I'm a big fan of classic winter tires with studs,gives you the great feel of being safe in any kind of winter conditions.We bought MB ML350 this year and due to the big rim size (20 or...  Read More

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

Given the compromises of an all-season tire over a dedicated summer or winter tire (which is usually what I have to choose), these tires are the best all-seasons I've ever had. They have excellent wet/dry cornering grip and brake very well. They almost feel like dedicated summer tires. Surprisingly, they do all this and manage to be very quiet. They also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have only 8K on the tires but they are def not an all season tire, you will need winters. As for driving in dry conditions i would rate them as average in the way of noise and handling.. i just recently bought the Extreme Continentals DW for my convertible and for the extra few bucks i suggest going with them. Hope this helps.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

These are very good tires. They are outstanding in the dry and very good in the wet. Very stable and very good steering response. I track my car with Dunlop Direzza ZII ultra high performance tires I put on for that purpose only, and I can say the Eagle F1's 80-90% of that tire in terms of grip. Which is saying a lot because the Direzzas are almost racing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Actually with a few miles on the car they are perfect. But my main concern is treadwear, after trying a set of sumitomo and kumho ectsa 4x, both last close 2 years(30 000 miles). I hope to go for 3 years with these DWS Next review in the summer 2015.   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 ExtremeContact DWS

I am on my fifth BMW X5 with this one an M class. Have tried almost all the brands and this is the only one I will put on my X5. I live in the mountains with all roads very twisty and steep. Winters are usually light with some snow and ice. Would never put another summer sport tire on this car as they don't last much more than 10 - 12000 miles. These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Excellent tires for the price. One of the best in class for passenger all season. They perform well in the snow for those who don't want to switch over to winter tires I highly recommend these tires. I don't think these tires will last up to 80,000 miles like the warranty says but I'm shooting for 65,000 miles before I have to replace them again. For Prius...  Read More
