Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Michelin is Excellence!!! There is no better on road tire unless you live in Snow Country the majority of the year!!!Original Equipment was Continentals. They are a B + Tire with 16 +/- MPH on my truck. Then I went for a Larger Tire Size, Toya Open Country (35 Inch Tire) 14 +/- MPH. This Tire is a good off road tire. Highway performance, rain and snow were C...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiTrac SUV

This is my first experience with Continental (have usually gone with Michelin for prior SUVs) and I am very impressed. I take my truck in regularly to be serviced and every time I ask, Are you sure my tires are okay? And they keep saying yes. After reading the reviews on this site, I can see lots of others have gotten higher than normal miles on their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

I have a lowered C1500 Chevy truck, and I have two different sizes on it. I bought these tires and I am VERY glad I did. I mostly run these tires in dry weather. This truck is not a daily driver. I recommend these tire to anybody.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

During this summer, I bought a set of winter rims and tires through Tire Rack for my 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD. I live in MN and All season tires don't cut it. Furthermore using winter rims really keep your stock rims sharp far longer (sand & salt issues).So in the past I have purchased multiple sets of Blizzaks which have been excellent in all winter conditions....  Read More

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

These were OEM for my 2010 Sequioa Limited. Bridgestones were not my first choice but I ended up replacing the originals with another set of Bridgestones earlier this month (July 2015). I think Bridgestone makes an excellent tire and I got great mileage and service from the originals. But I wanted to replace them with a set of Continentals. I can't complain...  Read More

Do you or a spouse travel on business? Maybe you have a child just learning to drive or perhaps leaving for their first year of college. If you do, you certainly want what we all want: for them to be as safe as possible. Bridgestone spent a decade developing a tire for just these types of situations.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires are the best tires for the money. You can actually stop on ice that was impressed me most. I have gone up hills that people with 4wd truck could not go up . So very happy with tires.   Read More

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

Placed 55,000 miles on these tires so far and will probably get another 5,000 miles on them before the tread starts to wear too thin. I live in Ct. and get a decent amount of snow each winter driving on narrow country roads. I was amazed with the snow traction I got my first winter with them. I realized most brand new tires will perform good in snow simply...  Read More

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

Ive had these on my 2010 Tahoe for 1 year (20,000 miles). As soon as they were installed it felt like a different truck. Had Bridegstones on prior to switiching to these Contis, the Bridgestones wore very poorly and made the Tahoe feel like the big truck it is. The Contis made the Tahoe feel more refined and smooth, what a difference. I drive around town and...  Read More

Introducing the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Continental continues to produce many of the Original Equipment tires for a large amount of vehicles in production today. However, they do much more than manufacture the ContiProContact that may have come equipped on your vehicle from the factory. They have several lines of performance and touring tires for cars, trucks and SUVs that are at a reasonable...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I went looking for a good tire for the summer/fall season in particular one to deal with wet road conditions. The roads where I live has a tendency to become grooved from all the heavy truck traffic so when it rains heavy it makes conditions dicey at times. After doing lot's of research I decided on these and they have delivered as promised, they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX

I've only got 2500 miles on this tire, but I'm very impressed with the ride comfort and noise level. These are very quiet and very comfortable. They absorb most small road vibrations and rough surfaces (like small rocks and gravel)they are very quiet. I'd have to say they are the quietest tire you could buy for a light truck or suv. The sidwalls are not very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056

These tires were installed during a cold rainy day at the end of Oct. First reactions were smooth, quiet in the wet, and above average grip in both acceleration and braking. The next few days were dry and clear and still the tires performed well above my expectations. Very comfortable and quiet. Bare in mind, I changed from a Continental LX20 (not an AT...  Read More

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

First of all mt truck has 20 wheels. The first set would not balance, didn't know if it was PB or the tire. After having them balanced and rebalanced about 8 times because of the excessive vibration at highway speeds (70+) Finally they determined one or all were out of round so they replaced all 4. After the new 4 they were smooth as glass. Keep in mind all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Live in North Carolina and snow is infrequent but possible (have a 4wd truck for that!). These tires lasted a long time, were inoffensive, quieter than the OEM Continental ProContact (not a great tire). These had a lower speed rating than what the car is rated for, I'd hoped for better handling and better mileage, it was simply a reasonably long lasting tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I bought these tires for my work car after selling my 4x4 truck knowing I needed something for winter and my driveway going up hill. I'm on my 3rd winter with this set and leave them on year round. At first I was rotating them every oil change but stopped when the wear was noticeable leaving the most worn tread on my drive tires. My non-drive tires still...  Read More

What's the Best All-Season Tire for Ice and Snow?

All-season tires are a great option for many drivers. They are suitable for drivers who live in an area that receives occasional light snow, and/or freezing temperatures a few times throughout the year. Some all-season tires, such as the Continental ExtremeContact DWS, even provide above average snow capabilities that are a benefit in winter months. However,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have tried the (oxymoronically named) ultra high performance all season tires from the following major brands: Bridgestone, Michelin, and Pirelli--before trying the Hankooks. The Hankooks are understated in their abilities, but come through when called upon to respond to diverse conditions.Yesterday, when a ladder fell off a truck on the highway in...  Read More

Continental Makes Three of the Best All-Season Tires for Winter Driving

Given the severe winter season of 2013 -  2014, many drivers are asking which tires have the best snow and ice traction. The answer is simple - the best dedicated winter / snow tires like the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 for cars and Blizzak DM-V1 for crossovers and SUVs, walk away from even the best all-season tires when it comes to traction in snow and on...  Read More

Why Doesn't My Car Come with a Spare Tire?

Is the spare tire becoming extinct? With a growing number of vehicles in the United States being sold without one, it could appear that way. In fact, many drivers are unaware they may not have one until they need one. New cars, trucks and SUVs seldom come with a spare tire, wheel and jack kit due to an increasing demand for fuel economy and storage space....  Read More
