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

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

This is the 3rd set of 3D's I've owned. First on my E46 330i and now on my M3. Just swapped out for a new set this season and again, these tires transform my BMW into an actual driveable car in the snow. I cannot state more strongly how solid these tires are, and more importantly, how other BMW drivers must swap out their performance rubber in the winter...  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 Dunlop Winter Maxx

You must purchase this tire. I got caught in the snow in Chicagoland with the stock tires - terrible. I bought the Winter Maxx's on a Friday and had them following Monday. We since had a major snowstorm in Chicago and the Sonata starts, stops, corners better than my Grand Cherokee (with stock tires). Now I know why winter tires are required in parts of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Got caught in a driving snow-storm on I-81. Left the highway and had to make my way up and down hills for about ten miles to get to a hotel to wait out the weather. At that point there was about 4-6 inches of snow and the roads were completely unplowed. It was packed down in most cases but I still had to bull-doze my way through drifts a couple times.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

44 inches of snow in the past 4 days should tell it all. These tires are superb. I was able to climb my 400 foot driveway up a significant grade with 12 inches of fresh snow without any problem. I cannot comment on their wear at this time. However, other than snow traction, my only other criteria for selection was noise. They are quiet and I honestly cannot...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

This is my 2nd winter on this set and I am very pleased with the confidence the Dunlop Winter Maxx gives me for winter driving in deep snow and icy conditions.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow

Incredible tire. All of my questions were answered immediately when the snow came hard the first week of installation. I've run Blizzacks, Dunlop winter sports,and others but these lead the pack. They took the trip to Florida and back so well I'm leaving them on year round. Barely any noise and none above my wifes chirping. Thanks to all reviewers who were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Signature (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Purchased this tire in pairs, because funds were tight. I was replacing a set of Prime well tires that were on the car when I bought it. I tend to drove very aggressively, fast acceleration and stopping. I live in an area where I have ample opportunity to travel curvy roads and have never lost traction when cornering hard. Even when traction is lost on...  Read More
