Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
April 10, 2014

We have had these tires on our 2008 Prius for about a year. They replaced the Goodyear Integrity tires that came with the car. Some observations, they are a bit stiffer in ride than the Goodyears but they also seem to handle better (turn in, cornering). They have good grip and stopping performance for this type of tire. The fuel economy is about the same as with the OE Goodyears. You can hear them if you try, but the average noise level is very mild. After 10k miles they show almost no wear, so I'm betting they will make good on their mileage claims (or get close to it). They have held up well to the abuse of our pothole stricken roads and took an impressively small amount of weight to balance. We haven't driven them in the snow so we can't comment on that. Overall I'd say they are a good match for a Prius.

Installed on an 08 Escape with the new intelligent 4WD. First thing we noticed was the quiet ride. First test was trying to get it stuck in the mud, the tires come with free wench out, and with mud to the doors and the traction control turned off I floored it, mud went everywhere and the truck pulled strait out. Then it was on to the Apache Trail through the Superstition Mtns, very smooth on on the wash boards and truck was always sure footed. We then took it to Sedona, ARZ and did some off-roading. The truck was sure footed and there was no tire slipping going from rock to rock. Loose gravel and pebbles were no problem. On a drive through the mountains in CAL with a foot of snow on a dirt road the truck maintained 45MPH and the Low Traction light never even flickered. Just a note here, these tires do have the severe snow rating. We drove through a summer rain storm in ARK and the truck was again sure footed. There was standing water on the roadways and we maintained 70MPH. Average MPG is 19/23.

Bought these to dump the OE Goodyear HTs which were death traps on anything but dry road. Stayed with size of OEs as wanted to keep narrower footprint in deep snow to cut thru it better. The Geos are amazing. The car handles much better even on dry roads and zero hydroplane and good traction in heavy rain packed and 4-5 inches of snow... yes weve had it up here already.

WOW... WOW... 1 more...WOW !!! Just got them yesterday (33/12.5/15's/Kevlar) & they have passed every test w/flying colors... Replaced the "Old-Tread" w/the new "Kevlar" & could not be happyer, We could hardly hear them at all @ 75 mph on the Hwy ... Had a "Monsoon" in the afternoon & went for a "Test-Ripp"... Great over standing water on road... Than we went to the local wash & my 98 GRAND CHEROKEE (ZJ) 5.2 AWD/Auto has never went up that stuff as easy before... They "Dig" & "Float" over the softest sand... Than we headed for the MUD...WOW !!! I thought the old MT/Rs did good, @ 20 lbs, but the "New Tread" @ 36 lbs is WAY BETTER... I hardly hit the skinny-pedal & they were "Flinging" & they track fantaitic, No "Drift" in 6 to 12++ inches of "Sloppy Mud" (That same mud filled the old tread to the point of no control & my JEEP would go where it wanted) We had total control... I would guess with the "Extra Tread" down the center of the tire these will last about 3X longer or more than the old tread... We have 1 more test left for today, "Aired Down" on the "Rocks" (Witch is where we spend most of our WHEELIN time) & if they handle the rocks like the old tread I know I will be very pleased... (I will up-date when we get back if I can) As acting VP. of the local Off-Road club, I will tell everyone I know that these are "The Ones" to buy if they are in need of "New Shoes" for ANY of thier rig's...WOW !!!

I replaced a set of Riken Raptors with the Goodyears. Much less noise, much better ride, better MPG and improved handling. I drive both mountain twisties and long freeway runs, and in both situations these are superior tires. Good grip under hard corniering and braking. I haven't had them long enough to report on tire wear, as the Z3 is a "third car" even thoug it gets almost 10,000 miles a year. Over all, I will proably get another set for this car, but that's a few years away at the pace we use the car. I also have a 2007 Corvette so the Z3 is a backup, rather than a daily driver. But I do like the Goodyear tire on the Z3. It seems like a good match-up.

I needed new tires immediately 1 year ago because the OE Goodyear Eagles with 45,000 miles were useless in the snow. Since I don't recall them ever being fantastic in the snow I wanted to try something new. Since the highly rated Yokohama Paradas were not available (and they did not know when they would arrive), I got the Kumho KR21's.
These Kumhos seem to be very good in the deep snow and slush. The first think I noticed is that they ride hard, turning the Murano's usually compliant ride into a harder ride, with more shock from bumps and ruts in the road. I haven't noticed anything from noise, so I guess they are pretty quiet. I was told it's the materials used in Kumho tires that make for the firmer ride than for example Goodyear.
I did notice tire spin when starting up on ice or slick roads... so I don't know if that's due to the AWD/traction control capabilities of the Murano or that these tires don't grip well on ice?
At 16,000 miles there does not appear to be any signs of wear yet, so they are holding up well.
My Murano has 118,000 stop and go city miles with noises and leaks and repair bills to match, so I don't know if I will be getting new tires agin for it again. If I do... I might look for softer riding tires. These are very good though.

Great tire for all types of road coditions. Best tire I have owned for snow covered roads. Noticable drop in fuel economy when these tires replaced the factory installed Goodyear SR-As. Treadwear has been lower than expected, based on current wear I expect to be replacing these tires in 4-months at 36,000 miles.

These 275/55-20's were OE on my 2007 GMC Sierra. Was a great tire all the way around (handling, stopping, quietness) by this semi-aggressive driver. Only real drawback was need to replace them at about 20,000 miles. I replaced with Cooper Zeon (horrible tire; loud, vibration, no traction) then yanked those in less than one year (gave them away). Finally replaced with Michelin LTX M/S2 and put probably 45-50000 on them. The LTX was a nicer tire than the Goodyear LS-2 in every way except mileage. I can't explain it, but I lost almost 2mpg with these LTX M/S2, but they're comfortable and quiet. The LTX M/S2 has a little poorer traction (regular, AWD, and 4WD) than the Goodyear LS-2 in snow, which have pretty decent winter traction. I don't see snow that many days a year, and find myself using AWD more with the Michelins than I ever did with the Goodyears, for both snowy and rainy conditions. If only I could get a 50K version of the Goodyear LS-2...

This is a replacement of OE tire which came with the '08 Sienna XLE FWD. Primary reason for choosing the Comfortred Touring was ride comfort, treadwear and price. Ride comfort is improved (less noise and less secondary vibrations transferred to the cabin). Treadwear is an on-going evaluation, but I don't expect to replace this tire for another 30,000 miles. Price is attractive/competitive. Overall very happy with the purchase, but will update when more miles are racked onto the tires.

Better than average tire. I am a Goodyear fan and got these due to mileage warranty. I drive in mountainous areas and expected I would not get the full 70,000 miles out of them. At the rate I am going I will only get 29,000 till the wear mark. I got 31,000 out of the stock tires but they did not even compare to these ComforTreds in performance. I am disappointed in the rate of tread wear but they are wearing evenly.

I'm very pleased with my purchase, both the tires and TireRack service. I really haven't put the tires through the ringer yet, but I can tell you the following.

The ride is comfortable.
Dry traction on on turns are great, keep on pushing but haven't found the limit yet.
Straight acceleration the tires let go, but that could be the suspension, I'm putting in coilovers now so I can do some tuning.

I'm going to be making some trips between NY and FL so I will be able to tell you more about highway driving.

Can't comment on wear, but the tires still look brand new.

All in all, great tires, great company, as long as TireRack is around they will be my single source of road rubber.

Best tires I ever owned. I check the inflation on my tires every week, rotate them at every oil change and have my alignment checked once a year. I could easily get another 3,000 miles out of them if I wanted, but the tread is down to the wear bars. My only problem is nobody carries them so I have to special order. Worth the wait. The stock Goodyear tires only last 28,000 miles.

Best All-Weather Tires for Mazda CX-7

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 by Gary Stanley

Are you looking for a great all-season tire for your Mazda CX-7? Then you should take a look at the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Michelin Primacy MXV4. For crossover vehicles like the Mazda CX-7, Acura RDX and Nissan Rogue, consider the top tires from the Grand Touring All-Season and Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season performance categories.  

I've had the Michelin Primacy MXV4 on my Mazda CX-7 for two years. This tire has provided my vehicle with a very smooth and quiet ride, good handling and great wet traction. The Primacy MXV4 offers a large improvement over the factory installed Goodyear Eagle RS-A. My wife and I can hardly believe the difference! For more information on this tire, read "Great Deal on 235/60R18 Michelin Primacy MXV4 Tires."

I have over 220,000 miles on my Golf and have had Goodyear Eagle LS, BF Goodrich Traction TA (twice) and a Kuhmo tire (don't remember which one) and this Yokahama is BY FAR the best tire I've ever had on this car!
I cannot believe the traction it has in not only the wet, but the snow is really good. It feels like a full-blown snow tire to me.
Dry traction and handling is much better than any of the other tires I've had on the car. The sidewall doesn't roll-over during hard cornering (sorry, I'm a licensed SCCA driver so all of my cars go around corners quickly LOL).
Noise is hard to say, it's a 2000 VW Golf so it's not the quietest car to start with. Noise from the tires doesn't seem too bad at all.
All I can say is, this tire is night and day different than any of the other tires I've tried. You really should try them.

These tire are very, very good in snow. Since I am currently using them in the winter I am not at all concerned about road noise, etc. However, I do have to say that, for noise, handling, etc., these tires are fine and are no worse than an average all season tire. I live on top of a hill and I have to drive through heavy snow and at times, ice. these tires are very good and provide an exceptional level of confidence when driving in these difficult conditions. As for mileage, I am not certain since I will (hopefully) be able to switch them out with my all season tires in May. At the rate this winter is going I am not certain that will happen (perhaps June?!). regardless, yes, I am confident in these tires and would not hesitate to purchase these tire again.

I've had many sets of Goodyear Eagles on my Police Vehicles over the last 20 years. I've also tried other brands as well, and there is no comparison. Goodyear is an American company and their tires are American made. I'm at a point in my career where I can choose what tires I have and I won't have any other brand of tire on my police cars. These tires see a lot of abuse and there is a lot that is expected from them. Goodyear tires, and in particular the Eagle RS-A, are they only ones I trust. They hold up and perform better than anything else on the market. The Ford Police Interceptor sedan with AWD, puts a lot of power to all four wheels. These Eagles have performed flawlessly.

I live just outside of the Washington, DC area, home of the just about the worst traffic in the country. Luckily, my daily commute consists mostly of free flowing highway driving with light traffic (down the new ICC toll-road) so 70+ mph is my usual pace there. Otherwise, my normal driving is suburban stop & go, daily grind, sort of stuff. These Kumho Ecsta 4X tires are my 3rd set of tires on this vehicle and by FAR the best I've used. The stock tires were Goodyear Eagle RSA's and as the reviews for those state, they were completely average tires with poor handling in anything but dry conditions. My next set of tires, Yokohama Avid V4S were old standby's that I'd had before on a previous vehicle. They were great tires, especially for the money. At 107,500 I was ready to purchase new tires as I usually always can get 50K+ mi. out of my tires. I read a lot of reviews about the newly redesigned Yoko's but couldn't help noticing the great reviews that the Kumho Ecsta's had received. I took a shot many years ago with Yoko's and have been really happy with them on both my G35x, Ford Explorer, and my Honda Accord V6 coupe. Sorry for the rambling, but just wanted to give some background. In any case, the price on the Kumho Ecsta's was great, and the trusted Tire Rack reviews convinced me to give them a shot on my G. I've had these Ecsta's now for 16,500 mi. from 2/20/13 to current (one year) and loved every minute of these tires. The ride is great, the noise level is adequate, and handling whether through our 90+ degree HUMID summer to our 10 degree lows in several inches of snow in the winter has been nothing short of spectacular at every level. I would highly recommend these tires.

I previously owned two sets of 245/45ZR-20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires on this car so my review will be these 245/45R-20 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. F1 tires are very responsive and grippy on dry surface, but were very noisy, tread life is only lasts 17K miles, and have zero traction on light snow or ice. i was skeptical of P7s when doing search because they are fairly new and didnt have a lot of long-term reviews. Also, ratings seemed too good to be true, price is fairly high and treadlife was rated high. P7s make the car feel little heavy, little less responsive and not as grippy during dry high speed cornering, but P7s still perform incredibly considering they are all season tires. P7s are super quite and super comfortable for tires of this size. I was fortunate enough to test them in all conditions including deep snow, ice and slushy snow. i'm amazed how well these performed in 6 inches of snow, 4 inches of slushy snow, as well as ice. they did not hesitate when starting or stopping in deep snow and had great stopping power on ice. there are not a lot of great options for all season tires in this size, but these are absolutely the best all season tires i've owned on any car with great handling on dry roads. also, i saw some discussions about MPG ratings for these tires and i can confirm they are almost as good as any summer tires. Highway MPGs are virtually the same as my old F1s. Trips from Alexandria VA to Hartford CT only used 3/4 tank of midgrade gas on F1s depsite my HEMI. i just did the same trip on P7s and still only used 3/4 tank of midgrade gas. however, P7s are little less efficient around town. tank of gas lasted me 6 days on F1s, but only 4-5 days on P7s. overall, highly recommend P7 tires especially if you live in NE and have to do deal with deep snow, but dont want to sacrifice dry traction, MPGs or looks. they are super comfortable, handle well in dry and will out-grip your neighbors SUV in snow & ice.will post later about treadlife
