Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

Don't know what everyone is complaining about. I have met numerous Santa Fe owners ('13>'15) who all praise the car and these optional tires on the AWD Sport Turbo. Driven in some horrible snow storms, some with blizzard conditions and never had any problems. Ice? Scarey no matter what you drive with whatever tire. These held their own. Wet Traction has been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these when I moved from the South back to the Midwest a little over three years ago. The original tires on my Hyundai Azera were very good and had a fair amount of tread left on them, but they were not all-season and were never going to cut it in an Ohio winter. I was surprised initially by how much quieter they were than my original tires. I did a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

AWSOME tire, i have 80000+ miles on these tires and they are just starting to show noticeable wear. And ifi was to judge,i would say there is another 60000-80000 before i will need to order the next set. They are a bit noisy but come on they are a off road tire, and i have certainly heard tires way worse for noise. I put these light truck load range E 80psi...  Read More

Tire Pressure Monitor Systems

Recently, there's been a push for consumers to better understand their vehicles both for safety and efficiency. We now have oil life monitors, tire rotation reminders, monitors that will tell us if we have a light bulb out and since the mandate was introduced in 2007 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Tire Pressure Monitor Systems...  Read More

Be Safe in Your Sonata: Winter / Snow Tire Options for Your Sixth-Generation 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata

For the longest time, the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord dominated the mid-size sedan game. Then Hyundai crashed the party with the Sonata! The sixth-generation 2011-2014 Hyundai Sonata has been particularly competitive but it still needs dedicated winter tires for the safest winter handling. When it comes to balancing snow and dry road handling, each one of...  Read More

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

Asking if I would purchase these tires again; I already did, for my second car! These tires are an incredible upgrade to what was previously on the new Hyundai. Since I purchased the vehicle there was always a pull to the right and the alignment was within tolerances. Since putting these tires on the car, the pull has completely disappeared and made driving...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I was a little taken aback when my Genesis 3.8 HTRAC was delivered with Hankook tires. I just didn't equate Hankook with luxury - but then again there are a lot of people who don't equate Hyundai with luxury. So like the Hyundai Genesis is a luxury car by any standard, the Hankook Ventus S1 Noble 2 (quite a name there!) needs to be evaluated by what it does...  Read More

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

I bought these tires and a set of 18 Hyundai rims to replace the 19 factory wheels on the car. I had two hydroplaning incidents and a terrible ride quality during my first 10,000 miles. The change was like night to day. The cars ride quality was 50% better along with an improved feel in cornering an no issues in some extreme rain and 6 deep standing water! I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

After reading the last review I feel I need to add my opinion (I generally don't take the time until now). I have a 2011 Hyundai Azera Limited that I purchased in the summer of 2010. The car came with Michelin MVX4 Symmetry tires with a DOT date 3907. For those of you that don't pay attention to DOT dates perhaps you should. Basically after 3 years and 40K...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have purchased these tires for my new vehicle this winter and also have them for my Sierra truck and for my daughters Hyundai car and for my sons Silverado truck. I wouldn't go a winter here in Manitoba without them. This year it hit -50 c and we had alot of ice. I wish Manitoba would make it mandatory to have these tires on and they will soon. There would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

You will be amazed by how quiet and steady your Kumho tires will be on your car. I got my first set of Kumho's as a replacement for Continental ContiTacs on my BMW325xi all wheel drive wagon in 2004. The Kumho's gripped better, and they were quieter. I have since used Kumho's as replacement tires on our Mitsubishi, Volkswagen GTI, BMW M3, and our Hyundai...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

For a light car with small tires, it did very well this snowy NW Indiana winter. My third vehicle with Blizzaks, one set on my 4 wheel drive pick-up and the other on wife's Hyundai Tucson. Lose a little agility over regular tires, but that is to be expected.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Just had these tires put on, and all I can say is wow. These tires are great compared to the Kumho stock tires on my Hyundai. I am very happy with them. Extremely quite, ride is very smooth, handling is terrific. No issues whatsoever. I have only put a 100 miles on them so I can't comment on treadwear and wet conditions yet. But I was compelled to leave a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

Worst tires you can possibly use in snow/ice. Does not have any traction and the car won't come to stop, every time you press brakes ABS kicks inn and the car will just slide. Trend wear is not good either, had to change these tires out at 28,000 miles. Went with continental pure contact and they are much better in snow. Hyundai, start using better tires in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I rarely take the trouble to write positive reviews, but after my experience yesterday I had to give these tires a nod. I drove about 250 miles in a snow storm in temps below 15degF, highway and local driving. Roads were a mix of wet where salt had melted snow, packed snow, slushy snow, probably some ice underneath. Virtually every possible condition....  Read More

If this sounds like you, Hankook may offer just what you've been shopping for. They offer high quality tires at a great price. Customers are surprised to learn Hankook is...  Read More

So, you're in the market for a new set of tires and you've come across Kumho, a brand you may not be all that familiar with.

In the United States, you will find Kumho tires as Original Equipment on many...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H426

These were the factory tires on my wife's 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS. Overall, not a bad tire. I was very surprised to get 40k miles, although they really could have been replaced 5,000 miles ago, but the weather has been very dry so we've put it off a bit longer. I would call this an average tires. Its got some good things and bad things about it. The worst...  Read More
