Best Tire Recommendations for the Toyota Camry

In the early 1980s, the Camry was introduced into the North American market as Toyota's mid-sized sedan. Many iterations of the car have been produced, including coupes, wagons and convertible versions of the car. While body styles have come and gone, the Toyota Camry has always been known as a reliable vehicle with very broad appeal. It's often one of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I was very hesitant to change from summer tires to all season tires. I previously, has Conti Sport 2 on my car and found it the best all around tire for it. I tried everything including Michelin with good traction and poor grip to Dunlop with outstanding grip and worrisome traction. Wear on the Dunlop was very quick, the sacrifice for grip; the Michelin...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

After about 25,000 miles of aggressive driving the front tires were pretty bald, but the rears still had about 75% left in them (front wheel driver). I could see a mild driver making 70,000 miles with this. The cornering abilities of these tires is something extrordinary. Pulling 0.92 Gs in corners without breaking the bead in a higher sidwall tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

When I went looking for a set of tires, my first-ever snowy winter was fast approaching me. I had spent my entire life up until that point living in the hot deserts of southern California, but was attending college in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I had no idea how to drive in snow, and I couldn't have two sets of tires - one summer and one winter - because I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

This tire came as a winter wheel/tire pkg i purchased from TireRack. We in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have recently experience a strange start to the winter. with temperatures ranging from +15c to -25c, rain, snow, hail. These tires have performed great. Being a high powered RWD car, i haven't had any issues getting moving safely through light and deep snow....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am ordering a new set of 4 X Ice for my Audi A4 even though I could still get more out of my previous X ices which are entering their third winter season, but when it comes to snow and ice driving I have learned it's best not to extract the last ounce out of a tread. I love these tires! They handle nearly as well as my summer Extreme Contact Continentals,...  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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am not new to Michelin tires, so this was the obvious choice when I was shopping for winter tires. Having said that, I considered Blizzaks and Continentals before my purchase, but the Tire Rack and Consumer Reports reviews for the X-Ice made my decision much easier. Two seasons on these tires, and negligible wear thus far. They handle well for a winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

My main reason for selecting this tire is for its winter snow traction. Traveling from the Bay Area to the Tahoe area ski resorts is a yearly occurrence. The OEM tires had decent dry performance but had very little snow traction, even with 4 wheel drive. It was so bad, the car was sliding around on the highway with light snow covering. The new tires were ---...  Read More

MUST READ! Winter driving experience! Vehicle: 2007 Cobalt SS Supercharged 17PSI LSD 5-Speed Manual. (Wisconsin)Winter experience: I am highly surprised with these tires, everyone was telling me I would not move a FWD with a 45 series tire. I completely disagree! These tires are incredible!! I have driven in snow up to 5 in the worst hilly area you could...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These came standard on my 2010 Outback. They are great tires in the summer, including in the rain, but once a little snow starts to fall or it'd cold enouhg for ice, they're terrible. They are very quick to hydroplane and lose traction, especially in the slush that forms on highways during a storm, even at low to moderate speeds. Braking and steering are...  Read More

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

This has not been my primary vehicle. I drove it a few times last winter in about 4 inches of snow and the tires did well. The tires are much less noisy than the OEM's. The set I got were made in Portugal. I believe they make this tire in the US also. They did not take any excessive weights in order to balance the tires. I purchased the tires through tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased my 2013 2 LTZ Malibu new and all was well with the OEM Goodyear RSA tires until the first winter arrived.I was very concerned because the car was almost undriveable even in light snow.Granted this is a performance car with wide 19 inch tires but I was not expecting such poor/dangerous performance with a OEM all season spec tire.Somehow I made it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Bought this tire to use with my summer wheels in march 2013 and have been very happy with the ride comfort, steering response and grip on the road in dry and wet weather. This tire does have kind of a soft sidewall but as long as you don't hit potholes very hard you are ok. I switch to winter tires around November and it has taken it's first year worth of...  Read More

This is my second review. I was waiting for winter to strike and update the performance of my tires. I am very pleased to say that I made a good choice and would definitely recommend to others.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I was looking for a tire with a good mix of performance and quietness. The snow and wet performance of this tire is very good. they are pretty squishy if it gets to be over 50 degrees though. They feel slightly lethargic on initial turn in but are stable and predictable in corners. Under moderate acceleration in warmer conditions you can hear the siping slap...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I purchased these tires to replace the OEM ContiProContacts that came with my car. These tires are like night and day compared to the absolutely atrocious Continental tires they replaced. During a recent rainstorm I tried to get these tires to spin even a little bit and they stuck like glue. Handling is great, ride is good and I am interested to see what...  Read More

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

My wife's vehicle. She drives 'spiritedly'. Almost all in-town driving, plenty of stop and go. Usual driving is: Average speed 45, aggressive starts, normal stop. Upstate NY winter handling is reported as 'love it/feel very secure'. My assessment is a little less than that as in my tests of testing the handling limits left me just shy of the 'wow' factor....  Read More
