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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek Touring A/S

This is a follow up to my original review a year and a half ago. 35,000 miles on the GrandTreks with dedicated snow tires utilized in the winter, so I have no experience with these in snow. They are still running very smoothly with only a barely perceptible increase in road noise. Guessing I will get 10,000 more miles out of these for a total of 45,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

Good enough tire for summer/non-snowy climates. Currently at 25K miles and no treadwear issues, I Live in WI and these do not handle winter well, cannot get traction in snow, got stuck in my own (flat)driveway when it was snow covered. We routinely have 3+ inches of snow during commutes. Going to get the new Continental DWS, which I used previously on an...  Read More

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

I LOVE to drive. Enthusiastically. Hard. My car is not stock and should be putting out about 358 hp. These tires when new had exceptional grip for both acceleration and braking as well as cornering. I now find rear wheel spin fairly easy to achieve when TC is off. The car came with same size Dunlops that were quieter and had less rolling resistance though...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek AT20

I'm gonna keep it short. I made 57K on these tires and I can't say anything bad. I live in Illinois so the weather here is unpredictable sometimes. I was surprised how well this tire performed in snow (All 4 wheel driving mode)The treadwear is 300 low but it helps out in winter. If you're more on the racing side this tire will wear out a lot quicker. Im not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More
