Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

South Western VA Can see some crazy weather..not as bad as other places but these mountains are unpredictable. we honestly Never know what's gonna happen, so that's why I use snow tires..I purchased these tires in 2015. We had regular snows in January, up until Jonas, and another big snow in February. After taking them off for summer, we had a crazy snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

This tire is the Bee's knees! The stock Kumho's were trash, didn't last very long and did awful if there was anything but pavement under them. This are very responsive, smooth, and great traction in wet conditions. I've only had a couple days on light snow and ice, but didn't have any slippage yet. Makes my car fun to drive again! Also can't beat the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

I have purchased General Altimax tires for years and they have always lived up to my expectations. The ride quality and performance are great and when considering their price, it becomes a very easy decision. You can spend twice the price for other brands, but you will be much more satisfied with the Altimax tire and have a noticeable bulge left in your...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These are a great snow tire. Don't let the cheaper price of these tires dissuade your from purchasing them. These tires along with my WRX's AWD system handle snow better than the Jeep that I previously owned. Would definetly recommend these tires to anyone looking for a snow tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I have driven these tire about 9500 miles. They are wearing very evenly (that means that my truck is in good alignment). Decent dry traction. Very quiet. I am disappointed in the tire wear. With only 9,500 miles on them, they is about 35-40% left. They are disappointing in snow and ice - therefore, I use the 4x4 feature. This helps of course, but even with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I installed these tires a few weeks ago. Since that time I experienced heavy rain, dry roads and heavy slushy snow. I like these tires a lot! I was shocked by how good they were in two inches of heavy, sloppy wet snow. These tires handle better than the Continental that came on the vehicle new. The ride is slightly stiffer but its not something the average...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

OE tires, so expectations have been muted. They've been overall decent tires, fairly quiet on the highway, pretty good dry performance, but not really that good in wet or icy conditions. Compared to other tires I've experienced, they have a tendency to hydroplane. Snow and ice traction is average at best, and I've generally tried to avoid driving this car on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

If you are looking for a smooth, vibration free, ride in an even wearing tire this is NOT the tire for you. It performed well in light/heavy snow and only average on ice. That said, despite perfect alignment, it wore unevenly. If you ran your hand from the back of the tire to the front, it was rough - like saw tooth wear. That translates into loud conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2

@ nearly 20k miles these tires have changed in personality quite a bit. They are currently at 6/32 depth for what just left the front and closer to 7/32 than 8/32 depth for the rears. In particular, the tire has changed drastically in the past 3k miles and I am sorry to say two of those are changes for the worse.The wet traction in general is now barely...  Read More

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

These tires replace the prior generation Michelin A/S 3's that I had on the car. One of the great features is the 45K mile warranty -- which I used to get into these tires. After 21K miles, the prior set was down to 3/32 in front and 4/32 in rear. They had gotten noisy, harsh, and obviously past their expected traction sweet-spot. So these new A/S 3+'s are a...  Read More

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

Long time listener, first time caller. I've used tire rack to support my tire purchasing decisions and as a way to promote vehicle safety to family and colleagues for years.When it came time to replace the OE tires (Dunlop Sport SP 01 A/S) on my daily driver, I did a considerable amount of research including talking with the experts here at TR. I enjoy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I got these tires because of the tire rack test review. They had the best ratings and for the best price. I am a very spirited driver and i tend to drive like im on a race track. These tires held up to everything i put them through; mud, sand, gravel, dirt roads, going over the occasional curb to skip traffic and the occasional race here and there. These are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I can't even tell you how great these tires perform, I'm an extremely spirited driver and I have yet to find a corner in my city to make these tires squeal. Lateral stability is worlds above anything I've ever run and they drive silky smooth like a grand touring all season. Put these on my low-profile summer rims and expecting the ride to be stiff as a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

only use this for my weekend fun drives. for the price, these are the bomb. tires are a soft compound so steering response is not as responsive with slight wheel turns, but when you actually do some hairpin turns and pushing these tires on the autocross, they stick like --------. i had more expensive tires but after buying these, such a waste of money. i can...  Read More

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

I kept coming back to this tire for the crazy ratings. I found a set of 225 50 17's instead of the correct 45 ratio. Willing to knock the speedometer off a tad, I had 'em mounted up. The change from Toyo Proxies was remarkable. Maybe the newer Proxies are better then the last generation but the BFG's are amazing in comparison. Well engineered compound that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The Geolander H/T G95A has performed much better than I'd expected from a set of OE tires. I live in the DC Metro area and since I've owned the Forester dealt with a few major (for this region) and a number of moderate snow events, as well as significant rainy spells. When I was faced with Snowmageddon in Feb. 2010, I found that once I cleared a bit of space...  Read More
