Lightweight Wheels for Your Nissan GT-R

20" wheels are heavy. As we know, weight is the enemy of performance and it is especially marked in the form of unsprung weight. Unsprung weight is everything not supported by your vehicle's suspension like your wheels, tires and brakes. Decreasing unsprung weight will make your vehicle brake, corner and accelerate more efficiently. Opinions vary, but a...  Read More

The DriveGuard┬áis the first run-flat tire designed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tire Rack's delivery was faster than what I was expecting! I've used Tire Rack for years and recommend them several times throughout the year. I live near Akron, Ohio, USA, and have had these Generals for a year now. They're GREAT! I use four of them on an AWD Impreza. I drive in the city, on the highway, and occasionally on grass, dirt, or mud. I have them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Steering and cornering are good although the odyssey itself is sloppy in this category. Great in rain. Have yet to try on snow or ice. Very pleased.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These Tires are awesome this is the first dedicated snow tire I have ever owned so I have nothing else to compare it to but all the reviews I saw on them convinced me to try them out and I couldn't be happier. I have not been able to get these tires to loose traction on cornering or anything else short of smooth ice but what does grip ice? short of using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Still running the AT2's I bought in early 2010 for my Honda Pilot. Though nearing the end of their useful life and likely to be replaced this upcoming spring, they still have tread and have never left me disappointed. Road noise has been a bit much on the highway, but never excessive. Deep snow traction has been phenomenal, and I've pulled numerous cars and...  Read More

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

Had these tires put on 45 days ago - use my car for business travel, a lot of highway but city and sidestreets. Noticable difference in handling and ride - slight hum that has diminished over the last 500 miles. Tire installer said the tread was aggressive - which I take to mean a slight trade-off on road noise verses traction in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky...  Read More

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

Purchased the all season standard tire and keep 36lbs. all around for a much better ride.   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 Pirelli P Zero Nero All Season

Lasted much longer that I expected, by far! Excellent on snow and in bad weather conditions in general. My car being an all wheel drive may contributed to that. Very good all around high performance tire. Very satisfied with these tires and Pirelli in general.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I used to swear by BFGs, I had a set of Long Trail TA's years ago and they were some of the best I had ever had. But they changed something, the next set that I bought only lasted about 30,000 miles and handled like ----.So I went on the hunt for my next tire. Tried the brand new BFG Rugged Terrains, after my stock Generals wore out, they were ok, but lacked...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Don't get me wrong, I feel totally confident driving in snow and ice conditions with this tire. In a straight line it starts and stops very well with very little slippage. However, cornering grip is less than expected and the Macan tends to drift out during the turn in moderate to heavy snow conditions. I have heard that this is a Macan tendency so I am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

Living in lake Tahoe basin for 7 years gave me a chance to try most of the winter tires on the market-General,Firestone,Bridgestone,Goodyear,Continental and many many others.I'm a big fan of classic winter tires with studs,gives you the great feel of being safe in any kind of winter conditions.We bought MB ML350 this year and due to the big rim size (20 or...  Read More

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

Bought these for my wife's minivan. After 10,000 miles they are as noisy as the knobby tires on a lifted pickup and everyone who rides in the car asks what's wrong with the car. Doing a couple burnouts (not easy in a very heavy FWD car with only 200HP) made the noise somewhat better but still extremely noisy.   Read More

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

We were so impressed with our first set of Altimax RT43 tires that we purchased another for our Jetta TDI. The car is mostly driven by my wife 120 miles/day commuting to work. With the winter we've had so far we've had little snow to deal with but again these tires didn't disappoint. Traction is great in the snow when combined to the TDI's DSG transmission....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

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

Purchased this tire for my daughters car, which also carries my grandson. Her main stipulation in a tire was good snow traction. In our recent heavy snow in Salt Lake, she said these tires were great! She was able to drive in neighborhoods with heavy snow, up and down hill, and she said the tires held traction when accelerating and braking. Do not have an...  Read More

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

You'll see 75,000 above and go huh? Well, that's because I bought one set, drove 40,000 miles on them, then purchased another set. I've driven my Camaro across the country from Washington, DC to Seattle, from DC into Canada, from DC to Maine, as well as DC to down south. From tackling the streets of Washington, DC, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle,...  Read More

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

Tires have much better wet traction than the OE Goodyears. The stiffer side wall provides a more compliant ride. My family and I just ventured back from the Smoky Mountains and the tires tracked true and straight without any pull. This gives a much relax and stable drive on the interstate. Cornering on these tires gives you predictable confidence, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Although I only have 2000 miles on these tires, I can definitely vouch for them. Ride and noise quality were really restored to my car. Greatly improved wet and snow traction since replacing a near-worn set of Generals. Looks like they will definitely go the distance too. Very pleased with the quality of these Pirellis.   Read More
