Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires for about a year now and they have worn wonderfully thus far. The dry performance is fantastic, and wet performance is nearly as good. The only factor playing into the performance of the tire negatively would be the fact that I drive a small car. The Toyota Corolla is very light and easily manipulated by weather factors, however the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact UHP

This is my third set. I get 30,000 miles per set with semi aggressive driving (hard cornering, high speed highway but conservative city) on a 6,000 pound vehicle. My rating is based on the whole lifecycle of the tire. The first 25,000 miles delivers extraordinary dry and wet traction and comfort with very low road noise. They even perform well in snow as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These tires replaced OEM tires for me. Got them from tirerack.com. I've noticed a huge improvement in smoothness and road noise from mile 1 with them. I have driven about 19,000 miles on them so far. In fact, these are a big step up from the OEM Goodyears in every way except one -- treadwear. That has been surprising given their rating. I got 37,000 miles on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

The best all-season, high performance tire I've put on the car. I've had Michelin, Bridgestone and Yokohama, but these Generals have provided the best performance hands down. You can feel how solid and stable the tires are when driving. Even in wet conditions. And definitely the most confidence you can have in light snow conditions. They're outstanding on a...  Read More

Lasted much longer that I expected, by far! Excellent on snow and in bad weather conditions in general. My car being an all wheel drive may contributed to that. Very good all around high performance tire. Very satisfied with these tires and Pirelli in general.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been completely satified with these tires!!! My Lincoln LS V8 is rear wheel drive, which proves it's own challenges in winter driving. I live in NW Ohio, and suffered a very hard winter last year. I was commuting 130 miles/day for work,,, sometimes through 6 inches of snow... and a couple times on ice!!! With those conditions I never felt as though...  Read More

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

These are very good tires. They are outstanding in the dry and very good in the wet. Very stable and very good steering response. I track my car with Dunlop Direzza ZII ultra high performance tires I put on for that purpose only, and I can say the Eagle F1's 80-90% of that tire in terms of grip. Which is saying a lot because the Direzzas are almost racing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Fun Tires!! I was able to drive in 4- 5 inches of snow and the traction is just amazing. It's hard to brake the tires loose. I had to find a empty parking lot and turn off traction control. The tires also feel great on the dry or wet roads. If your looking for a great high performance snow winter tire I would strongly recommend. Let it snow!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

I replaced my 2nd set of OE Michelin Diamaris due to uneven tire wear, high noise levels, etc. My first impressions were WOW! no noise (low speed or at 85 mph), small imprefections in road surfaces are a lot less noticeable, and handling dry or wet is great. Now that I have more than 2,500 mile on them my first impressions continue.Do they have the same dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

These tires are designed with practicality in mind. It's quiet, smooth, and lasts a long time. Just don't count it for high performance driving. It still does well in emergency maneuvers for avoiding those drivers not paying attention. I personally prefer to have a bit more grip for higher speed cornering. It could be the car where it just likes to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Placed 55,000 miles on these tires so far and will probably get another 5,000 miles on them before the tread starts to wear too thin. I live in Ct. and get a decent amount of snow each winter driving on narrow country roads. I was amazed with the snow traction I got my first winter with them. I realized most brand new tires will perform good in snow simply...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I live in the country with a very long driveway and travel on country roads. So far this tire has been very good in deep snow and on ice. I have not lost any traction in moderate snow depths, or on black ice conditions. I am very impressed with the traction this tire provides in a rear-wheel, high performance car. The price is great and so far no problems in...  Read More
