Q7 TDI owners,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler AT/S

The ratings for this tire needs to be taken with a grain of salt. To be honest, they were great when new. Did very well in all conditions and for not being a winter rated tire, fairly well in the snow. With that being said, at about 20k the wet traction dropped of extremely fast. It rapidly becomes prone to hydroplaning and sliding. I found it to be the most...  Read More

Worried About How Your New 2016 - 2017 Chevy Camaro Will Do in the Snow? Relax, We Got Your Back!

Having a fun sporty car used to mean that you also needed a second car to handle the winter months. This is no longer the case as modern traction control systems and ever improving winter tires mean the fun doesn't have to stop when the snow falls. For example, you have a 2016 Camaro and we have several tire and wheel options to get you through the...  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Anyone that drives a CR-V knows that it needs quiet tires to be a quiet vehicle. That said, I have tried three different brands on my CR-V over the years and the Michelin Defenders are by far the quietest of all of them. The Goodyear Assurance tires were awful. They rode horribly and had a constant moaning sound that drove me crazy. I then tried Yokohama...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Very impressed with these tires. Purchased to replace Goodyear Eagle GT(not reccomended). Very confident and responsive handling in summer dry/wet conditions. Winter conditions are handled with ease on my FWD vehicle. tolerable increase in noise and vibration on textured concreate highway, but not terrible though.   Read More

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

Replaced the OEM goodyears with these michelins on my 2010 infiniti g37x. Big difference in the overall ride. Quiet, smooth, excellent grip on dry roads. Best tire I have every driven in any vehicle in wet conditions. Confidence inspiring no matter how wet. Not as firm as the original tires and as a result a little less responsive when pushed. A fair trade...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I bought these tires in November to replace some worn out goodyear rs-a that came on the car when I bought it. I have owned several different uhpas tires, including Dunlop (can't remember which ones), Falken 912, Falken 512,etc. These are by far the best I've driven. They're quieter than I expected. More comfortable by far than the goodyears. Better at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Cargo G26

The first set of tires were factory installed on this Sprinter 15 wheels and lasted a little over 100K with no additional balancing or rotation. I finally fixed the front right camber problem and now my mileage and steering is very nice. I expect these new tires to go over 110K; maybe 115K. Keep track of tire pressure for the season, front bearings in good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

June 2016. I bought my car used, 18 months ago. It had a fairly new set of Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position tires. Dealer said they were a great tires for this car.i soon learned that the tires gave a very hard ride...I think because the tire wouldn't flex as much as my Goodyears that I have bought for all my cars during the last 25+ years. Also, to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

Ok, I spent hours reading reviews about tires and what to put on our Jeep. I wanted something that could handle our Colorado mountain roads in the winter time along with something that could get us to a trail head in the summer time with getting a flat. It would be a bonus if tires also had a smooth ride and quiet as this is the family vehicle. So far I only...  Read More

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

I will review again after winter but wanted to submit my initial impressions. Wow! If you have the F250 or F350 diesel you need this tire. It blows the OEM tire out of the water. I changed the OEM to a Cooper AT at less than 20K because it was worthless in the snow and ice. The cooper was somewhat better if I kept enough weight in the bed but it wore out...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

My car came with new Michelin Tires from the factory. They were HORRIBLE during the winter. Replaced with Goodyear Eagle GT Tires, and experienced much improvement. Tried Pirreli Winter Sotto Zero 3 Tires, and never knew tires could have that much of a dramatic, positive affect. The Pirelli Tires provided a dramatic improvement in all areas, in all seasons....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My truck is back.... The old factory Oem Goodyear wrangler sa's were not all that bad. But after 40k miles they were loud, wearing out, and made my expedition ride extremely rough. These tires are not cheap. But if you are reading this you know enough to understand that you are looking into a premium tire for your truck. These michelins are worth the price...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

After buying them in Jan. 2014, I've been trying to be more attentive about them--pressure, alignment, etc. 45K later, they still have 7/32 left in April 2016. After finding out that Tire Rack existed and reading reviews on them, it was nice to see I inadvertently bought a higher quality tire. I've read other peoples reviews about them wearing out quickly,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I drove these all winter and I only had one occasion to lose traction. I was leaving a stop light and wasn't aware of how slick the road had become. Stopped well but when I left, I spun the tires as I started. Never did I feel like the tires would lose traction on the highway. Noise level was elevated compared to the Goodyear RS-A that are OEM. Steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Have these tires on a dedicated 17inch steel wheel. Did not notice any difference in ride from the OEM 20 inch on Goodyears. Noise is a little louder than a all season tire due to having them studded at 0-30mph. Anything over 30mph and you cant hear the studs anymore. Tires do exceptionally well in deep snow. Pulled out a mini cooper in 20inches of fresh...  Read More

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

OEM Tires for my car were the Asymetric Summer tires so when it came time to replace them at 30K Miles I opted for the All Season version. I'm not disappointed at all. Living in SE PA we see all types of weather and temperature. I managed on my Summers through two winters and clearly my cars performance was reduced at temperatures below 45 degrees. The A1...  Read More

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

Excellent winter tire for wet and snowy conditions, such as we have in Oregon. These have served very well on my ski car. No complaints, really. Quite good on dry roads also. I only use these as winter tires, take them off in the Spring.   Read More
