Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Purchased the MXM4 to replace the oem Goodyear LS that came with TLX V6 AWD - the Goodyear is a very poor choice for this car, shame on Acura for this decision. I was looking for luxury level performance, and the MXM4 delivers without question. Quiet, smooth, dampens road jolts and bumps extremely well. Handling is not sport-level, but is a significant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I've had these tires for about a month. I live in the Pacific Northwest and in the last month, we have had below freezing weather (icy roads), heavy rain, 8 of snow (rare for us), and slush. These Defenders did great in all these conditions - even on hills in the snow. AWD helps but I doubt the stock OEM Goodyear Forteras would have performed the same. I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

49000 on these tires and will go for at least another 5000. If I had rotated as often as I should these could easily have gone 60k plus. Not great in mud. Traction wet and dry is going away now that they are 80% gone. I'm going to buy another set but in 20 instead of 17's. You will be tired of looking at these tires before you wear them out.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Exceeded the millage warranty as I travel regularly in my auto, and found they are ready to be replaced. I do drive spirited and up and down Hwy I95 daily. These tires have held up really well compared to factory installed Goodyears. They are now getting noisy but again over the warranty, drove in both dry and wet weather and had great traction in both.Just...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

Replaced the OEM Goodyear Eagle GT's after about 22,000 miles with the Michelin Latitudes. I was unhappy with the Goodyear tires as they wore unevenly (even with proper tire rotation) and started to crack along the edges. I replaced all 4 tires with new Latitude HP's and also did a wheel alignment. What a noticeable difference in ride comfort and traction !...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I average 25K miles per set of tires on my Audi. My first set were OE Goodyear and the second set were Michelin. Both sets were All Season. The Goodyear tires were okay but the tread wear was terrible. The Michelins were extremely noisy and with over 20K miles the traction in snow was awful. For the third set of tires, I decided to try Continental Extreme...  Read More

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

I love these tires! I put these on a 2013 Impreza sedan, immediately after I drove off the lot at 11,000 miles. It came with OEM Bridgestones that had 1/3 tread wear, and upon using the on-ramp to drive home, almost immediately broke loose on dry pavement. Next stop was to replace the OEMs with these. Immediately, I was driving an entirely different vehicle,...  Read More

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

Purchased a set of 4 of the Altimax RT43's, waited until I put some good mileage on them (10K) under various driving conditions to write this review. Had tires delivered to a tire shop I use close to work (Arrived the day after I ordered them) and the technician commented how well they balanced with the road force balancing procedure I requested. I am a...  Read More

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

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 RunOnFlat

Other reviews say these tires are horrible in cold/wet situations. This tire isn't made for wet/cold days, but have had no issues in the rain or cold with them and no issues out of them what so ever with my aggressive driving style. I have even gapped a few drag radial'd 5.0's on them from a dig. They hook great for a street tire/run flat.. I drive my car...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I have had three sets of these tires on two different Honda CR-V's (2002, 2011). They have a nice soft ride quality, solid handling in wet/snow conditions, and the service has been about 60,000 miles for each set. I rotate them every 6000 miles and they are maintained for inflation and for inspection. I will most likely purchase them again, as they have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

(GTI with Performance Pkg-6sp manual) Initial Review 2500mi Tires purchased to replace OEM All Season Hankook H Rated VENTUS S1 NOBLE2. (Planning to purchase Goodyear PSS summer tires in the spring.)This has been a challenging winter in Chicago area with significant snow, ice and very low temperatures. The Pirelli Scotto3 (non-run flat) have performed with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

These Conti True Contacts are the 3rd set of tires on this car. First 2 were Goodyear Assurance ComforTred (not Touring) and Hankook Optimo H727. Both were decent. I got cupping on the H727's and it's too early to tell if that will be an issue on the Conti's - but the wear is very slow so far. After only 17k miles, I love the TrueContacts. They are extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Definitely great overall value within competitive set of premium all weather SUV tires. Good handling, quiet and smooth ride. I usually get about 45K per set of tires on my Q5. So far these are superior to OE Goodyear Eagles, Dunlops and last set of Michelins. Just rotated at 5K. Looking forward to another 45K on this vehicle with 140K miles on it   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I put these on my new 2016 Impreza (16x7 Moda rims) and so far they have been excellent in the couple of storms we've had in Denver. I've driven them out in the Summit county mountains over completely snow covered passes and they performed perfectly without hesitation. I was mainly concerned with noise and comfort and these perform as well if not better in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Purchased these tires to replace the OEM Goodyears on the truck before winter snows started. The first 8k miles are about 50/50 highway and city.Smooth, quiet, great traction. They are showing no signs of wear so far. Dry traction is as expected driving a 5500 lb truck the way it should be driven: not really aggressively. Snow traction is all I was hoping...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Very happy with these tires. Replaced the stock Goodyear's on my G37x. Excellent dry weather traction. Even more impressive is the wet and light snow traction. Traction feels nearly as good as dry traction, an impressive feat (have not had an opportunity to try deep snow yet). Also very happy with the extremely smooth and quiet ride from these tires. Would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I installed these tires on my 2009 Pontiac Vibe which came new with Goodyears. I was very dissatisfied with the ride of the Goodyears, hard compound, felt every bump in the road. I actually considered getting rid of the car. Put on the Michelins and thought I was driving a totally different car. Nice smooth comfortable ride, great handling and response....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

Tires were bought and put on my wife's car but I drive most of the time. These tires are so much more comfortable than the factory tires (Kumho). The ride is quite and so smooth it seems like we bought a new car. They were a little more expensive than tires we could have purchased but we felt confident they would provide us with everything we were looking...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I changed out the OEM Goodyear Eagle RFT's that were frankly not acceptable. Blew out 2 Goodyears before replacing all 4 with Driveguard. We have more than 32k on these tires, and all is well, no damage, they run fairly quiet, and have good traction. Mileage seems to be in line with 50 k warrantee, likely to get more than that. I rotate them every 5-7k....  Read More
