Great Choice for Year-Round Driving: Continental TrueContact

Ideally, everyone who lives in a climate with snow and ice for at least part of the year should use dedicated winter tires. The reality, however, is that not everyone has the room to store an extra set of tires or tires and wheels. Additionally,  a second set of tires just isn't always in the budget. If you're going to use an all-season tire year-round, Cont...  Read More

Making the New 2015 Ice Silver Metallic Subaru BRZ Premium Better

I liked my 2013 Honda Civic Si because it was a fun, quick and capable car with a moonroof. While the Civic Si was nice, it simply did not stir my soul the way my old BRZ did. So I said goodbye to my Civic Si and picked up a 2015 ice silver metallic Subaru BRZ Premium. The changes Subaru made to the BRZ in 2015 are outstanding. A shark fin antenna gives the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone B381

I just bought a used Honda Hybrid and it has B381's on it. The guy kept all the records and I see that he bought a set at 40,000, 58,000, and it now needs tires at 100,000. Unbelievable and there is no mileage warranty so tough luck! No way will I put B381's on this car when I get the next set. I see Michelin has a set of LRR tires with a 90,000 mile...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were the 6th set and the longest lasting ones that I have had on my 2006 Honda Civic EX...they lasted 42,800 miles. The front tires could last me until winter, but I am going to go ahead and replace all four now since there is a $70 rebate. Previous tires have lasted 24,000-32,000. Civics are notorious for chewing up the rear tires due to issues...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

My 2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite came with Michelin Primacy MXV4s. I've been a long time Michelin fan and have had experience with these tires on my old Accord. They are great passenger touring tires, and I can see why Honda would put them on their top of the line van. The MXV4s are very smooth and nice riding touring tires for cars. On a heavy Van/SUV...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I purchased this tire as a replacement for the stock Michelins tire that came on the car. After a couple of hundred miles of breaking in I noticed a great improvement in road hugging handling.

Cleveland, Ohio.Switched to dedicated snow tires years ago. I have had 3 cars in that time and every single one was fitted with dedicated wheels with Blizzaks on them.

My #FirstCarMoment with a 1978 Honda Accord

By the time it got to me, Uncle George's 1978 Honda Accord had plenty of miles on the speedometer. No worries, it was my first car and a well maintained Honda is solid as oak, regardless of the mileage. It was burgundy red, with red velour cloth seats and manual transmission. I loved that car! It never let me down. Not surprisingly I've had eight different...  Read More
