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 General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I bought these for $288 for 4 shipped to my door. These are great winter tires, the tires on my wife's 13 CRV were getting a little slick(less than 20k OEM tires, go figure). I am glad that I bought these tires as we have seen over 80 at my house this winter. My favorite thing about these winter tires is that I forget that they are winter tires. That is...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Mazda's Mazda6

The Mazda6 is Mazda's mid-size car entry offered since 2002. The third-generation hit the streets for model year 2014 as a four-door sedan with options of either manual or automatic transmission. Without a six-cylinder engine option, some may suggest it loses appeal to some people. However, fuel economy numbers in the high 30s will grab your attention. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I live in Mass, and we have some crazy weather throughout the year, especially during the winter months. I got these tires late Jan. 2016 and have more than 8,000 miles on them so far. Pretty much all of driving is during the week and on the highway. They are great in the snow from a few inches to over a foot, no problem in the rain either. There is a trail...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Extremely happy with these tires. 50,000 miles so far, and just starting to notice a little bit of highway howl at 70mph. They have at least another 10,000 miles of tread left, I'll replace them with another set just before next winter. These tires have been great on the highway and great in the snow, on and off-road. Highly recommended for the value.   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 General Altimax Arctic

Since my WRX comes with summer only tires I bought these mounted on rims from Tire Rack. I grew up in Wisconsin but when it snows, Tennessee mountain driving is far more challenging than WI. ever was. Put on 1100 miles last winter and 1900 so far this winter on mostly dry roads - tires have been even better this year due to break in last year. I live on top...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires are a great value. Good traction in snow and reasonable on dry roads. I use these for spirited winter TSD rallies and feel safe with them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I was looking for tires for my new 2008 Prius with 176k miles. I wanted improved traction; not tires for improved gas mileage. I don't care if I lose a few mpg or not. Safety is key! My daughter and son would be driving this car in the winter (and summer) in Minnesota and I needed better traction. These tires did the trick. I am super pleased with them and I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires are excellent. I generally run Blizzaks, but we were not planning to keep this car so I wanted something cheaper to get through the winter. These tires were about $150 less for the set 16 car tires, which is a pretty substantial discount. I can say after a season of good snowfall that these tires perform as well as Blizzaks and I will purchase...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Great winter tires! I had Blizzak before, and these are cheaper and just as good. Really quiet on the highway, smooth ride, and excellent snow grip. I would absolutely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

My daily commute consists of 10 miles of secondary roads and about 30 miles of interstate driving with a difference of over 1000ft in elevation during the drive. I've used studless winter tires in the past in level terrain and was relatively happy except on ice, but with the amount of driving and hilly terrain I elected to go with a set of 4 of these tires...  Read More

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

I have used General winter tires on my X3 for many years and this year I have tried an all season. These new all season tires are unbelievable! I had a chance to put them to the test this month when we received our first good snowfall in the mountains of Utah.I was able to climb unplowed snow covered hills with about 4-5 inches of wet snow without ANY...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Initially this tire was great! After first rotation @ 5000 miles, the tires began a balancing issue. Found out two of my four are out of round and it takes a bunch of weight to balance them. This will never get any better on this set. It is a great tire in light snow and ice conditions if driven properly. I would use this tire in the future on a serparate...  Read More

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

About 3 years ago I ordered new 15 inch wheels and tires here on Tire Rack due to limited stock tire choices. The Michelin Defenders were excellent, but after 70,000 miles, I decided to get new tires for up coming the winter. Since the Fit has a pretty hard ride, I was looking for a comfortable tire with good wear ratings. I love the old Altimax tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires surprised me on my Fiesta ST. The car came with summer-only tires so had to get a winter set, just put them on some steelies. I was so pleased with how well the tire did in snow. I actually looked for deep, untouched snow to see what they could do and I never got stuck. I'm not saying they could turn your car into a snow mobile but they...  Read More
