Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I have about 22-23k on this DriveGuard tires, and I can honestly say they are THE BEST tires I've ever owned. This car came with Continental tires from the factory, and they worked, but didn't do anything specially great. I would consider them a middle of the road tire. Since then I had a set of Goodyear's which had a good price, but were really sub standard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

OE on the Mustang; just taken off for winter tires. Overall, i was impressed with the dry weather traction--enough stick to make the car fun to drive without a harsh ride. Steering response feels good. Downside was noise level--the Blizzak snows were actually a bit quieterOverall a decent tire for the Mustang Ecoboost--no experience in snow; wet weather...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I bought these tires for my '13 Wrangler, that I regularly abuse on the trails, in addition to daily driving. On dry streets, they're comfortable and quiet. On the rocks, they have plenty of grip to get me where I need to go. In the mud, they respond better than one could expect from all-terrains. No, they're not mud tires, but they do still have some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I struggled with making the final decision of identifying which tire to install on my '15 Challenger R/T Scat Pack. My car is a daily driver where I utilize the concrete pavement freeway, mostly, to and from work, including in town driving on weekends. I do not live in a state where driving in snow presents a concern. Given the temperate year round climate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I live near Buffalo NY. We get a few snow storms each year, and the roads get extremely slippery and icy. Its only a few days each year, but you don't want to get in to an accident on one of those days.My wife bought a set of these True Contact tires a year and a half ago and as we approach the end of the second winter with them I am absolutely amazed at how...  Read More

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

I now know how the other half live! What an incredible difference. I bought these to replace the OEM equipped Goodyear Eagles, which were acceptable in most driving conditions, but brutal in winter. I started to wonder if it was the car. Nope, definitely the tires! It is not surprising to roll off the driveway and onto a snow covered road in our development...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 the Best All-Season or All-Terrain Tire for Snow Traction?

If you've experienced driving through a tough winter season on a top-tier winter tire like the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-2, you'd agree that a set of dedicated winter tires offer the best traction in snow and on ice. If you are one who doesn't agree with this statement, take a look at "Do Winter/Snow Tires Really Make a Difference?" Winter tires should be...  Read More

Cheer Up, Atlanta! Tire Rack Adds Another Georgia Location.

I'm sure Atlanta Falcons' fans were sky high when their team was up 28-3 in the third quarter. Tire Rack can't help with the team's success, however our new Doraville, Georgia distribution center will help Atlanta drivers get the items they need for their vehicles quickly, and without any shipping fees. Are you one of the thousands of drivers that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

The tires are good for all seasons. Traction is good, not great. The OEM summer tires (Goodyear Eagle F1s) on my car had superior traction -- especially while cornering. You need to lower your speed 5-10 mph in corners with these tires. The ride is slightly less stiff than the Eagle F1s (which are rather stiff tires). Over the F1s I noticed a slightly less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Tire needs to be replaced it did not last the 50000 miles claimed. Once it go down on tread the traction in snow went way down.   Read More

Introducing the General Grabber X3

For those that don't know, I have been running the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires for the last two years. I have only about 35,000 miles on them, and they have approximately 50% tread depth remaining, but they were 315/70R17 (about 35" by 12.5") and I wanted to put larger tires on my Jeep. The General Grabber X3 (with red letters) was my choice in...  Read More

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 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 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 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

(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.

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
