After only 45K on a 80K tire Im down to 3/32 tread already. This car is my baby and I dont abuse it. With a little snow dusting I cant get up my driveway. The dealer sole me these as best thing ever, will maintain traction until completely worn etc. I paid huge $$ for these things and they are crap. I am filing tread wear claim with Goodyear, so far response not overwhelming. Have to play hot potatoe with them and dealer, she couldnt get through to dealer so I have to make contact again! They should take it from here. This will no doubt be my last Goodyear product ever. Goodyear, because they are good for ONE YEAR!

Put a set of these on my 1999 Tahoe at 125,620 miles after only getting about 60,000 miles out of a set of Goodyear Forteras. Dealer told me I would not regret it. I just turned 229,485 on my Tahoe and there is STILL no end in sight for these tires. Tires rotated every 6K min, sometimes every oil change. That is the key. Not sure when these are going to wear out. Excellent wet/dry traction, Very Good but not great in the snow. If you want a tire for your truck or SUV that you want to get 100K out of, this is your tire. Well worth the money. Rotate them frequently and they will take care of you.

I purchased my Continental Extreme Contact DWS in October from Tire Rack and I can honestly say the purchase through Tire Rack and the tires themselves has been the best experience. I have a 2008 Chrysler 300 limited DUB Edition which I honestly love. As mch as I love my car , which will be classic someday , it is rear wheel drive with all chrome wheels that only will allow performance tires . By the way I live in snowy Columbus, Ohio. Last winter was "dangerous " riding on my Goodyear RSA's. Like many of you reading this review with the winter coming and remembering my fear last winter everytime it snowed , I started looking for an all season tire that was best in the snow in August. After reading many reviews on many sites, though they were the most expensive, I narrowed my purchase down to the Michelen Primacy MXV4 and the Continental ExtremeContact DWS. I made my decision in October. The experience at Tire Rack was so painless that I ordered the tires on a Friday and had them installed on a Saturday at a Tire Dealer less than a mile from my house. Here is the best part, the 1st snow in Columbus hit the 1st week of December , 6 inches the 1st day and 5 the next day. If this had been a year ago , I would stayed home and never left the garage. However, this year, I was absoultely amazed at how good the ttraction is for a rear wheel drive car in the snow. The difference is day and night . The fear of "snow is gone, thanks to these tires. The ride is smooth and amazingly quiet and the braking and driving on wet payment is firm and compliant. These tires were expensive and my only negative thing to say about them is that when it is cold they seem like they weigh alot and steering is sluggish until they warm up. If you have a rear wheel drive car and live in a snowy climate, and want a quiet ride, and good traction without compromising performance these are the tires for you. I am more than pleased and will definitely buy these again from Tire Rack again.

My new Honda Pilot SUV came equipped with Goodyear Integrity tires. When it came to time to replace the tires, I decided to replace them with the same exact tire since I was happy with their pass performance. After getting the new Integrity's put on, I noticed a road noise that I never heard before. I gave the tires a week, but the road noise did not go away. I went back to the dealer and they heard the noticed the noise too. The dealer re-balanced the tires, checked my wheel bearings, etc. But that did not help. I called Goodyear to ask for a refund under their 30 day drive policy, they said they do not refund money, they will only put me in another GY tire. GY decided to put another set of Integrity tires on. Well that did not help either. I asked GY for a refund again, they said no. Then GY wanted to put on Dunlop Signature tires. Since the dunlop tire cost sligthly more they gave me a minimal upagrade price I would have to pay. After they put the dunlops on, the price all of a sudden went up substantially. I said I did not what the tires. Then GY said they would refund all my money and take their tires back. At this point I was just feed up, I paid the difference and kept the dunlop tires. I've had the dunlop's for a few weeks and they are fine, I like them and there is no road noise. I think that Goodyear had a bad batch of Integrity tires because both sets had the same problem of noticable road noise.

Tires gave me a lot of problems from day 1 when I bought the car. There was impossible to drive this car on highways with speeds 70 mph and up ** 350 miles on it , these tires were putting my Durango in so much vibrations that I had a feeling that car is going to faul apart ** dealer could not replaced them for any other brand so he was just trying balanced them. After balancing all set 5 times ( 3000 miles on tires) let say he finally did it I decided to keep them on but I am not driving faster then 80mph on highways. Overall it is decent tire , good handling and braking in 6" of snow, good wet traction, good dry traction. Over 25000 miles on this set and lots of tread left but I am sorry Goodyear I can not wait to switch to Michelins or Continentals.

I negotiated a new set of tires from the dealer that I bought my car from tires as part of the deal to buy the car I knew nothing about the tires but I figured that they were not going to be the greatest given what I had to go through to get him to buy them. When I asked the service advisor were they any good he assured me that they were even after I offered to pay the difference in price between those and a better set. I have had these for 2.5 Ohio winters (luckily last winters was very mild) and they are horrible in snow and ice my traction control light is always coming on when I accelerate from stop and the tires are always spinning and struggling to gain traction on pavement driving and stopping on light snow is very tricky and almost impossible in heavy snow in the summer on dry pavement they are great but anything else they are unacceptable from a safety standpoint. I bought a set of Goodyear Weatherhandlers for my previous 2002 Impala and they were great and I was looking to purchase another set before I did some research and found out about the Michelin Defenders and I am looking to purchase a set within the next few weeks (hopefully before the next snowfall) If you can help it spend more money if you live in a rainy or snowy area (unless you are a thrill seeker) you will be happy that you did.

After only a couple of years of horrible experience with dealer recommended/installed Goodyear Integrity, I had to replace them yet again. This time I discovered TireRack and chose these tires. I was initially biased with the name, commercials and high ratings, and had high hopes and bought them over snow tires last winter. Well, it has been a very good ride on the highways and city roads. But, it was obnoxiously noisy for many months. After about a year now, it sounds eerily quiet and feels like a luxurious ride (due to (0F) cold air? worn out treads? didn’t check on that!). It is quite good on snowy roads as well. It slides but is very controllable. I am happy with them.

I bought these tires last week to replace GoodYear F1 (steel belted showing). I bought this car a couple of months ago. The F1 was at the end of their life, so I can't comment on those. The Continental traction is great for everyday driving and accelerating. Handling is awesome even on wet roads. I can't comment on snow because we rarely get snow. It is probably in the 40's now and I raced a Trans Am red light to red light, easily taking him. The traction was great if you don't dump the clutch or drop the hammer. 540 HP at the wheel and something it gotta give. The second round with the Trans Am. I come to a stop because of traffic and he changes lanes. So he gets the jump coming around me. So I dump the clutch and drop the hammer. My brand new Continental extreme contact start spinning, the back end start fish tailing and then it hooks up and lauches me. These are great all around tires for everyday driving. I'm not a track driver but I enjoy the occasional street race. It is evident to me that I require two set of tires. These for everyday travel and a set for road racing. I will look to purchase a set of 555's and rimes for the rear. The supercharger is a beast and so far nothing has fully hooked up. If it ever does this thing will lauch into outer space. I have a stock set of SVT rimes, so no one carries a road racing tire in 19in rimes. I hope this helps your choice on purchasing these tires. Tire Rack purchase was flawless. I highly recommend tire rack and I search for two weeks on line before purchasing my tires from tire rack. Several places advertise no shipping but when you compare prices that is a false statement. My tires arrived in two days with standard shipping. These guys are awesome, even the local tire dealers recommend tire rack. They can't come close to touching these prices.

I ordered these tires on 12/12 and the were delivered to the local Goodyear dealer on 12/14, as promised (they have an excellent relationship with Tirerack). I had to have all weather tires since this is my daily driver and living in the South we get quick, short notice rain showers, especially in the warm months (10/12 months). This car weighs 2500 lbs...there in NOTHING that will keep it from hydroplaning; you just have to slow down. I looked for weeks at LOTSA tires and tire reviews. On paper, the Yokohamas were the best, by far. Well, they are better than expected. When these wear out I will buy another set! Graet tires, great service, great price ($600;

Less than 50 miles, too soon to provide any meaningful rating so will update as we accumulate mileage. But this is to provide a history, and no better place to start than at beginning.

About 12k mi/year, combined DC Metro beltway & city. My wife & toddler's car.

Day after hurricane Sandy...less than thrilled with wet traction on the OEM Bridgestone Duelers and replaced at 32K. Planned on getting new rubber anyway before winter arrives.

Came to tirerack.com first and reviewed and filtered and sorted everything out. Tire dealer didn't have my first choice (Goodyear Tripletreds) in stock so, like an impatient customer, went with second choice: Dunlop Signature CS. We immediately feel huge improvement in wet grip during constant rain. It's like night and day, however it is compared to poor factory OEMs. But already feel more confident.

Will update at meaningful intervals. Thank you.

My newest tire on our Sprinter van, following the OEM Michelin LTX A/S (so-so), and the Michelin LTX M/s (very nice road tire). This time I was looking for a tire with better light and deep snow traction, without giving up the road characteristics that I really liked in the Michelin LTX M/S tires we were replacing. I found that in the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor. We are very pleased with these tires. Compared to the Michelin LTX M/S tires, they have a stiffer sidewall, so steering responsiveness is better. The price you pay for this, however, is sometimes severe tramming on highways that have deep truck grooves. These tires want to climb those ruts so constant steering attention is required. On flat roads (no truck grooves) they are very well-behaved on the highway. Traction is exceptional with these tires. When I first bought them, I had them siped (like I had done on the Michelin LTX M/S to improve snow traction), and while they were great in snow, on our dirt roads and with the torque of the diesel motor, we were starting to rip chunks out of the tread blocks. The tire dealer I bought them from admitted they should not have siped these tires (don't do it if you buy them - read on) and replaced them for free for me after about 10,000 miles. Even without siping the treads, these tires were much improved in snow, especially in deep snow, compared with the Michelin LTX M/S (which were siped). They are slightly noisier on the road than the Michelins, but the improved traction makes it worth the tradeoff for me. Right now I only have 20,000 miles on them, but they are wearing very well. I'll have to wait and see if we get 80,000 miles out of them like we did with the Michelin LTX M/S tires we replaced. Overall, I'd rate this as the superior tire for any state that gets snow. For warm-weather states, I'd recommend the Michelin LTX M/S, unless you drive in mud or sand a lot.

These Michelins have given great service. There is plenty of tread left and the overall performance is about what you'd expect from Michelin.I have never been disappointed with this brand. I have used them on three of my wife's cars and all have given good value.
On this truck I am primarily looking for good treadwear, low noise and decent wet/snow and dry traction.This tire delivers. Keep an eye on the inflation and rotate them at about 5k miles and they should last a long while. I waited to write this review til I had some time/miles on them and there is still plenty of tread left to get through this and probably next winter.
I replaced 10 ply Goodyear Silent Armor Pros, from a local dealer, that did not go 30k. So trust Tire Rack, (I've bought many winter tires, brake parts and shocks from them), and Michelin.

I bought this car with only 13000 miles on the original Michelins which were so mushy and squealy when driven quickly on back roads that I had to make a change or sell the car. I upgraded the wheels to 18x9's all around and put Toyo Proxes S/T's, which transformed the car into a sports car. The Toyos lasted 45000 miles and were incredible in all weather, including snow, but rode a bit rough and made a bit of noise. I put the Firestones on due to their Tire rack rating, as Toyo discontinued the tires I had. The Firestones handle wet driving as good as the Toyos, which is outstanding, are very good in the dry, with just a bit less crispness on turn in, but ride and noise are the best combination I've found yet in a tire which drives this well in all conditions. For a 5000 lb vehicle to drive this well takes a really great tire. I'm looking to buy a new Grand Cherokee Overland and I asked the dealer if they would swap out the OEM Goodyear Forteras for the Firestone S/T's - they laughed of course. You can't beat these for an all-weather SUV ... at any price

When I bought the Jeep and saw the Duelers, I asked the dealer if they would swap them for the Goodyear Wranglers, on another vehicle. They wouldn't, and I was extremely skeptical, of the tires. This was due to my experience with the Dueler D684s that came on my wifes 04 Suzuki XL-7. They were terrible, and wore out at 15K.
These however have been outstanding. I'm replacing a 65K tire at 65K. I didn't think it was possible to get the actual mileage they were rated for, from ANY tire. I'm putting new Dueler A/T RH-S on this week.

GoodYear Assurance Tires  - 235/60 R 18
It was recommended by Lexus  to replace my OEM tires Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 on my 2010 Lexus RX 350 AWD at 20.000 miles, tire tread depth 4 / 32 all services including tire rotation and wheel alignments  was done at the Lexus dealer. Naturally dealer offered OEM tires such as Bridgestone or Michelin. I decided to do my own research and find suitable replacement tires. After reading reviews on TireRack web site I have decided to purchase GoodYear assurance tires. Well, they are spectacular as far as performance and noise level. I felt a tremendous difference and so far I'm completely satisfied with my decision to make this purchase. Tires came with warranty from Goodyear  compare to my OEM Bridgestone tires had absolutely no warranty, much noisier tires with decent handling but considering they only lasted 20.000 miles I personally chose GoodYear tire over Bridgestone. My personal preference while driving are comfort and quiet smooth ride and GoodYear tires accomplish this so far 100 %.

I bought these tires as an alternative to the OEM Michelin LX4s since I had not had great wear on two sets of those back in December of 2009 (34K on the original set and 28K on the second set). The reviews of this time were generally positive and I was really interested in the 50K warranty. However, these tires developed a balancing problem after the Goodyear 6 month warranty. My dealer could not get the tires to stay balanced and even used a force balancer to try to help. They attempted to work with Goodyear to no avail. Somehow, Goodyear decided that a balancing problem was not a manufacturing defect. So, here I am with 35,500 miles on a 50,000 mile rated tire with only 3mm of tread left before the winter season. The handling is terrible right now because of the balancing issues and the tires have become very loud on the highway. I will not be going to Goodyear at this point to deal with a tread life warranty claim.

Tires came with vehicle.Have not yet driven them in snow.Traction seems ok in the rain,but they will hydroplain in some conditions.My biggest concern and I've checked with Goodyear tire dealers and called the 18003212136 number and I still get conflicting stories about why the sidewall tread patterns go forward on one side of vehicle and face rear of vehicle on the other side.I've seen this on the Traverse/Pilot/Acadia/Gr.Cherokee/Edge/and Explorer.The manufacturer says it does not matter.I don't believe them.The dealer says those sidewall treads are all supposed the same direction.Jeep service mechanics say it does not matter.In speaking to owners of aforementioned vehicles-they did not even notice this until I brought it to their attention.I've even contacted the National Highway Trans.Safety Admin.They say I'm the only one who has logged a complaint on this matter.I at a loss.The tire is rated a 50k but I don't see that happening.When it's time for new rubber,I'm going back to the Bridgestone/dueler apt-.Can anyone help me?Open to all ideas.

6 years and 216,653 miles ago my dealer friend talked me into swapping the OEM Goodyears for a set of this series' take-off OEM Michelins. I'm really picky about tires after 28 years of SCCA Solo II competitons. These are the best tires for what I do that I've ever had on a vehicle. Best grip in all but off-road conditions, great ride, and best of all the longest wearing of any tire I've ever had on any vehicle. Much cheaper to run these than to run cheap Goodyear tires like I did on my previous Dodge truck because they roll over twice the miles.
