Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I spent way too long looking at winter tire options, and tireracks' website was by far the most useful.Regarding the Winter Maxx, I liked the reports of good tread wear and general all-round high marks for this tire, combined with the price. (There was a rebate going on.) I purchased the tires with new black steel wheels and had them mounted/balanced by...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm tellin' you, these tires have made all the difference in winter performance of my '15 Subaru. It came w Goodyear Assurance All Season's and I'm very disappointed in Subaru for shipping a car to New England with these tires. Take 'em off and put these General's on! I can't get enough about how amazing this car now just cuts through the snow. The handling,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Mileage is an estimate, since they are on about 4 months per year. I am now at 7/32 tread. This is their 6th season, and my third Legacy they've been on. I just verified my purchase date as November 2009, because I was replacing one tire that had a slice in the sidewall. Naturally it happened last night just after we got 7 of snow, and temporarily spoiled my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm a 71 year old female who drives 25 miles to work each day and back in very hazardous conditions. I called Tire rack to see what I could do about my tires as my car came with 18 inch tires and it was extremely dangerous in the ice and snow. My salesman suggested that I go to a 16 inch tire with studs for the winter here in Ohio, and sold me new rims and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Had BFG AT/KO tires before and although mostly satisfied with all aspects except snow I wanted to try a different tire. I wanted BFG TA KO2 tires, but my size is not available until November. I needed tires now, after comprehensive research which really ends up confusing as there are as many one stars as there are five for most tires. Frankly these tires...  Read More

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

I've had these on a 2008 550i for 50k and they have been great tires. I've never been a fan of Generals but a friend of mine had them on a 911 and raved about them. I figured for the price I'd try them out and I have been impressed. Great in the rain and even with very little tread wear left, they hold in a downpour(however I drive more cautiously knowing...  Read More

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

I've been driving on these for about 15,000 miles as a daily driver. I've been caught out in the snow once with them (normally drive a truck when the snow comes) and they did outstanding in 2 deep snow. Other than that, it has all been wet/dry driving on mostly highway and weekend treks on curvy roads. Road noise is a bit higher than most tires but nothing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

For having a RWD car as my daily driver and considering the Miata's small size, people said I was going to have a tough time travelling during the winter. My buddy reccomended these tires for winter since he had a set that worked really well. I have not had any issues driving in snow, sleet and freezing rain as they kept traction at all times. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Bought tires just before winter of 2013 and never looked back. Very happy with the tire all around. They wear like iron, have 25,000 miles on the set and can't tell. Winter snow in the Snow Belts in Michigan can be problem for some, but with these tires I never have to worry. Tire noise on dry payment is as good as highway tires on my wife's van. Tire's...  Read More

So far have been really happy with these tires. Only have used them in the winter time so far but they work really good in the snow.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have had these for over 4 years (2010 build date) on my Subaru Outback as daily usage tires and have over 70,000 miles on them with only 1 rotation. Front wear is nearing limits, rear is still around 60% tread.ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! This is my 3rd set of AltiMAX Arctics on 3 vehicles, prior to that I religiously used Nokian Hakkapellitta Q and RSI models....  Read More

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

Approx. 1,000 Miles so far on my 2009 Volvo S40-R AWD & I am very Satisfied so far with these tires! Driven during the following Conditions so far: Warm & Dry, Light/Hard Rain, Light 2-3 Snow & Ice (Thanks to Maryland Weather).This is my 18th vehicle that I have owned but only my 4th Car/Sedan, most of the others were lifted off-road 4x4's with 33+ Mud...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Upgraded from all seasons to this winter tire. Best decision I ever made, like night and day. They are fantastic on snow, even deep snow. The end of our road gets snow built up until the plows can get to it so it can be hard to start off into the main road, these plow right thru it from a stop. On dry pavement they are a little bit squirrely, but nothing...  Read More

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

I live in Chicago. I drive a 6 cylinder front-wheel drive pontiac. I drive the car very hard. I bought these tires after hours of research. I could not decide between a set of winter tires or good soft all season tires. I went with these because they are the highest rated all season tires on this website. I am very happy with them. I cannot say enough about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Replaced the original Michelins that came with my 2011 Civic Si, the Continentals turned out to be way better in every aspect. I noticed better traction during acceleration, will test out 60ft and 1/4 mile during Spring and Summer, then update my review then. Michelins could only best a 2.5 60ft (horrible 60ft vs a 2.2 average for all season tires) and a...  Read More

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

I replaced the OEM Pirelli Run Flat tires with these Michelin Pilots and have been very impressed with the benefits of the change.The Michelins generate less road noise and make the ride more compliant, most noticably over small ruts and bumps in the road surface. They are wearing very well, and I currently have 12,800 miles on them - they look about 30%...  Read More
