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

The old tires were Continental CrossContact LX, they were good for the price I paid. I ran over 40K miles on that set, compared with the OEM Dunlop 5000 that I could manage 20K miles at max. This Bridgestone set is good in general, it did something better than Continental such ride, and wet traction, but it is not that good in cornering in the curve like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 M

Don't know why everyone else is complaining about tread wear. Came OEM, 18,500 miles of somewhat aggressive driving and still 8/32's on all 4 tires. Snow grip is awesome (compared to the Michelin Pilot MXM4s on my previous car, 2010 Ford Fusion.) Only flaws are the rough ride and road noise but it doesn't bother me. After all, if you want a quiet luxury car,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Are you kidding me? These are snow tires? Amazing!! They are much more quiet than the OEM high performance all seasons that came on my car. They grip better in the wet and the dry, they have firmer cornering behavior and oh yea, they are snow tires! Which means great cold weather breaking power too. Stop reading and just buy them already... I will never put...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

This tire combined with AWD does very well on my BMW 330Xi during the Northeast winter. I am very impressed with the dry, wet, and snow traction for a high performance snow tire. I really don't think any all-season tire can match this level of traction in both dry AND snow conditions. Noise and wear so far have been very good. No complaints. Honestly, this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 2050

I have these on my Mazdaspeed3. Originally when I purchased the car I had Kuhmo Ecsta SPT summer tires, which were not so good. When I was looking to buy a new set of tires, I had the option to buy a whole new set of 2013 Speed3 rims and OE Dunlop tires so I jumped at the opportunity.These are vastly superior to the Kuhmo's. I don't know why there are so...  Read More

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

I replaced my OE Potenzas with these F1 all seasons. I got tired of having to swap wheels every winter and put on the Dunlop Winter Sports, so I'm trying all season tires. I put them on in April, so I haven't driven in snow yet, but on dry pavement and rain, the Eagle F1s perform as well as the stock Bridgestones. Cornering is awesome. The F1s handle the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature II (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I doubted the reviews,but I took a chance based on price. They haven't disappointed me though. I drive mostly on high speed toll roads and rural highways and these have a good ride that's relatively quiet. I've had no issues in rain to this point and I'd really have to stretch it to find a real complaint. I haven't had them in snow, but I'll put the snows on...  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 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires to replace the stock Dunlop sp2050 summer tires on my Mazdaspeed3. The michelins not only have higher overall grip but ride more smoothly and quietly. They still look phenomenal after 10k miles, with the lowest tire still measuring over 8/32nds with lots of spirited driving. I turn off traction control and spin them at least weekly.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I purchased this tire over a year ago to replace some 970AS Pole Positions. (worst tire in snow ever made even light snow). I am a machinist by trade and have made substantial modifications on the mostly stock EVO (except intake, exhaust, cam and programming). Even though I could burn these tires off in a matter of minutes they have performed well for the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

What a significant improvement over ANY all season tires on ice, light and heavy snow!My 3 month old Dunlop SP sport 5000 tires were rated with the best snow and ice traction among all other all season tires in the latest consumers report survey, but the car can't even stop without sliding out of control when I reach intersections on slight icy conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Michelin are always my tire of choice. These ride smoother than my OEM Dunlops. They are smooth, quiet and perform excellent in the snow and ice.   Read More

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

Early review at 2000 miles. Replaced OEM Summer Tread Dunlop A01 with this Michelin all season tread. The Michelin is very quiet and smooth riding. It handles just as well as the summer Dunlops. Haven't used them in light snow yet. Will see how they hold up in regards to tread wear and noise after they get miles on them - this is where the Dunlops...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin my whole life (and driving for 22 years). These are hands-down the best performing tires in winter conditions that I have experienced. This is the second set of winter-only tires I've owned (other set was Dunlop Wintersport M3 in the same size on the same car). I've also driven this car with the stock Bridgestone Potenza...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

After moving into a new house that has a very steep, paved driveway, I wanted to get snow tires for my BMW and my wife's Subaru (both AWD). I chose the Blizzak's for theSubaru and the Dunlop Wintersports for the BMW. This review is for the Blizzaks so I will speak mostly to these. Bottom line, these tires are awesome. I purchased mainly for snow and ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

The Dunlop SP 7000's that came with my accord were ok for dry but were mediocre in the rain and Snow. These Kumho's are better in every aspect except road noise, the PA31 can be a little noisy on concrete highways no problems on asphalt.Turn in and stability are great for the price and definitely better than stock unless some other moderately priced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I have never been a huge fan of dunlop tires, I have always found them to be mediocre at best. However I decided to give these a go for my new car which just so happens to be a front wheel drive v8 monster. I questioned my decision to use an all season tire on this car and not dedicated summer and winter tires, but given the expense of running 255's in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Just purchased these Dunlops to replace the noisy Hankook Optimo H426's on my Crosstour. So far theses tires have been very nice! Nice looking, quiet, they ride well and are much better in the rain. The Hankooks were horrible in the snow even with 4WD. Anxious to see how theses HP's handle winter driving. Not terribly expensive, would consider purchasing...  Read More
