Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

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

Initial review. I struggled when picking tires for this vehicle. 2007 Grand Prix GXP. The car has a very tight suspension and is a real performer for a 4 door full size sedan. I was looking for the perfect balance between ride comfort, something quiet, but yet would maintain the sporty attitude of the car. I think this tire does the trick. Road noise was cut...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Short version: 95% of the performance of a summer tire, 95% of the quiet and comfort of a grand touring tire, 90% of the performance of a winter tire. The best all around tire I've found. I have these tires on all my cars, a Chevy Volt, Mercedes SL550, Mercedes E550, and had them on my Mercedes GLK350.In Colorado, conditions can go from dry and warm to snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Extremely disappointed with the performance of these tires in any snow depth, especially anything over 2, when I first researched these tires, they rated well for snow, after purchasing and driving in snow for the first time, I was appalled over there poor performance. Went back and rechecked, data had been updated to report poor performance, just reaffirms...  Read More

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

I use my 2006 Porsche Cayman S as a commuter car so I opted to go with an all-weather tire instead of the standard performance tires. I've been very pleased with the Goodyear Eagle F1 All-Seasons. Very confident traction in rain and wet conditions, there's slightly less grip in dry conditions compared to the performance tires but nothing that would make you...  Read More

This tire was standard on my 2015 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0 T. After 2000 miles I am extremely satisfied with the performance on both dry and wet roads. The ride is quiet and smooth, and works well on the car. I would definitely recommend it.   Read More

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

So I took my winter tires, Nokian Hakka's off about 10 days ago then we got dumped on with 6+inches of snow. I drove about 60+ miles yesterday with my Michelin Defender LTX MS in slushy, icy conditions and when I got to the local roads there were some unplowed roads. The tire did well. It's not the performance my winter tire would give as they are designed...  Read More

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

Had these Yokohama's on now for 3 days. They were put on during a significant snowstorm so I was able to test drive them immediately. Traction was great. I researched these thoroughly before buying. It was between the Geolandar's G056 and the Michelin LX2's. I went with the Geolandar's due to significant price difference but similar ratings, and past history...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

No question on performance, need great number of miles for additional evaluation, no snow. I do find the bland side wall appearance unappealing, no character. Never really had a bad tire going with Tire Rack's ratings.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

Me and Firestone have a complicated relationship I really don't like the brand, their tires usually only last for a year or two and that is a lot especially when your investing $400-600 for your car.These tires at the time of me buying them were about $90 bucks a pop I couldn't resist the price was just too good. I am using these as a summer tire in CT only...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

This is a superb performance winter tire. Living in the DC metropolitan area, winters are mostly dry or wet rather than snowy, but serious snowfall does occur (not to mention road trips where snow is to be expected). These tires handled everything the weather threw at them with aplomb, including dry roads, wet roads, slush, packed snow, and ongoing heavy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I was looking for a replacement for the OEM run-flats on my 2014 corvette. Settled on the Pole Positions and I have been pleasantly surprised with the performance of these tires. They bring out much more of the performance capability of the 'Vette. They are quiet and extremely smooth, and well priced. With the OEM tires, the rear end had a tendency to step...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

After installing these tires in combination with all new suspension and braking systems, I have not lost traction except under extreme braking situations. Due to my car's weight distribution and lack of ABS, it has always been able to lock the front wheels if you slam on the brakes. If given a short amount of extra time for the weight to transfer to the...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There‚Äôs no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the stock Goodyear Run Flats on a 2012 BMW 335i Coupe, with these and couldn't be happier. I was concerned with driving this car in the winter in the Cleveland, OH area. Although we had a relatively light winter this year, the times we did have snow these tires performed almost flawlessly. My wife has a brand new FWD Toyota Highlander, with a snow...  Read More
