Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

These tires brought back the confidence in driving this four wheel drive vehicle in winter. The original tires were quite worn when I got the vehicle and slipped a lot. Made it safe to drive and the treadwear looks acceptable.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I replaced a set of Firestone Destination LE (not II) that had lasted about 35,000 mi. In comparison, these tires were orders of magnitude quieter. They are great on dry roads, I have had to make a few emergency stops and have felt quite confident in their performance. Quick starts on wet roadways result in absolutely no wheel slippage (partially attributed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

Great snow tire for the Fiat 500 Abarth. Good performance in snow/ice and allows no-drama commuting in poor conditions. Blows right through light and deeper snow. Can get a little bit of hydro plaining on slushy mix once they salt streets but only at higher speeds and deeper slush/water. Handling in general is great at 7/10s but I purposely dial it back a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Best winter tire I've ever owned at a fantastic price. Less noise than other snow tires I've used. A bit squirmy in the dry (but I do have a 3,800 pound car on narrow snows to begin with--what would one expect?) but stable. Handling is OK, it's a snow tire. Grips better than expected on ice. Have never let me down, and may never go with a different snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I just finished my first winter on these tires. /they performed better than I expected. I ever had any problem on unplowed roads or highway. During a severe black ice night I slipped and slided but made it home when every other vehicle on the road either crashed or was hopelessly stuck. The only time I had ant difficulty was when I went to drive around an...  Read More

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

I was skeptical about getting these tires in February, as I usually use winter tires. But I purchased a used vehicle and I wanted something that would do for the rest of the winter and be used just for summers after that. The reviews by owners of SUVs and large cars made me believe that the G-Max would have no problems in up to 2 of snow. Frankly, I am blown...  Read More

thi.s is the best winter tire I have ever owned I have 25000 miles on the tire and it is wore less than three thirty seconds of an inch. I expect at least four more seasons out of this tire.I am currently finishing my third season and they are fantastic. I bought another set for my wife's new Camry.I actually have another set for the summer for my Passat SEL...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I bought a set of these for my Civic. For the first few hundred miles they did feel a bit slippery in the wet, but that went away after they were broken in. This was one of the worst winters on record here and the tires performed amazingly well. I never once felt like I was going to get stuck anywhere, even on inclines. In the dry they start to feel a bit...  Read More

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

I put these on my Sonata to replace the stock tires which were the worst winter tires I've ever owned. These made me feel secure well beyond what I had hoped, the traction in snow was worlds better then the Hankook tires on my car at half the price. I'd recommend these to anyone that's having problems with traction in snow.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

A great snow tire at a reasonable price. Went to smaller width/higher profile on speed3 & did great through this tough winter. Also put a set on my daughter's Mustang & made a huge difference.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

This tire was previously highest ranked for my Jeep and is why I bought a set. I have been extremely pleased, am about to roll over 50k on this set and they are barely worn at all. They're great on the road, excellent when I get to play off road, and have handled several winters in the North Carolina mountains as well as trips to northern New York. Plus,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

Our Toyota Highlander V6 AWD has always been a good winter vehicle. Excellent in all wintertime driving conditions from glare-ice to a foot or more of deep snow. I drive about 75 miles rt for work each day, mostly expressway driving in Michigan's snow belt. Last winter (2013) was a bad winter so this year I went with as set of winter tires for the first...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Excellent all around winter tire for areas receiving moderate snow. Majority of my driving in mid west where we experienced significant snow and ice this winter. Tires lean toward cold/dry performance over deep snow performance. Amazing responsiveness for a winter tire. Have had Blizzak on other cars and those are superior in DEEP snow. However Blizzak and...  Read More

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

Had these tires on for 5 months, one complete Minn. winter. So far they are great. A little soft in the sidewalls. You notice it during hard cornering, but nothing to worry about. Traction in snow, on ice, dry pavement all is excellent. Very quiet, nice ride, definitely a good tire. Wear is perfect, had alignment right after installation.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tires used 6 seasons so far and will probably use again next year. Mileage listed is approximate. Studded. Traction is incredible. This year was a great year to have them and after 5 previous seasons I was not afraid to drive anywhere under any conditions. Highly recommend studs for packed snow and ice. There is no comparison. These tires should be mandatory...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought the Firestone Destination A/Ts based on their very high ratings in the Survey section at Tire Rack. In the past, I always thought Michelin made the best tires, so I was somewhat skeptical of switching to the Firestone brand. After 11 months and 19,000 miles of driving, it's clear that the Firestone Destination A/T is the best tire that has ever been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Needed snows for this extra-snowy upstate NY winter, and chose these because I have been very happy with them on my 2006 Mazda3 hatchback for the past 3 winters. It's difficult to tell the car has snow tires - these are very quiet, don't squirm or lose grip, and take turns almost as well as the OEM all-season Yokohama tires. In snow they have been very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

my old bfg ko in same size had over 60,000 and not good for another winter. I didnt like the wet road performance and hydoplaning. but did love the tire life and off road strengths. the gt at2 had the bow tie tread and good reviews and was cheaper. On road the at2 is quieter, handles better and doesnt hydoplane. winter ice and snow was better too, although...  Read More
