Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I am ridiculously happy with these tires. They have been on the car for nearly 2.5 years and 35K miles. The DWS in the tread is still all visible; S is supposed to disappear first, indicating that snow use is not advised. Our WA freeways are pretty rough, so they are a little noisy, but on a smooth surface they are still very quiet. I have more issue with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S

It came as OE for my infiniti which is AWD. I am researching tires for my other car as unfortunately I sold my infiniti, over this last snow storm my new car slipped and ran into curb causing lots of damage. Any case I used to drive on these tires in snow and quater inch ice. Actually I was the designated driver for my co workers as they usually got stuck at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

One of the best all round tires I've seen for passenger cars and minivans. I've had this tire on 2 minivans, a 1994 and 2007 Caravan and a 2002 Subaru Outback. On the Outback, they would pull through 8 of snow with no problem. Have never had an issue with wet traction or hydroplaning on any of the vehicles. I have 86,000 miles on them on the 2007 Caravan,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

Bought these to go on my girlfriend's infiniti. Replace some old Goodyears. I'm one for spirited driving and these tires hold up well for that. dry grip is solid and it takes some pushing to get these tires to their limits in a big sedan. very stable overall, but there's a very slight hesitation when doing sudden course correction (did a quick homebrew...  Read More

New Dunlop Winter Maxx Tires Installed on My Car

After three years of faithful service, my Michelin X-Ice Xi2 winter / snow tires have finally worn to the point where they needed to be replaced. While they were not bald, the tread depth had worn to about 4/32nds of an inch, which is more shallow than recommended for effective snow traction. Tires at low tread depths can only "nibble" into snow instead of...  Read More

This is my second set of Blizzaks for my Infiniti. I have never gotten stuck or stranded with my rear wheel drive Infiniti in 8 years of driving during MINNESOTA winters. I think that statement says it all.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

So far, this has been an excellent tire for the AWD Infinity. Very good performance for the price. Maintains traction in wet & snow. I find the dry road noise level to be completely acceptable on smooth pavement.   Read More

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

Wow, these tires rock. I have gone through a bunch of different tires on my car (Kumho Ecsta 4x, Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position, Continental ExtremeContact and Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus to name a few). Since I drive aggressively, I don't get to many miles from my tires.I live in the northeast and have already experienced 4+ inches of snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I have been riding on Bridgestone tires for years. I wanted a tire rated for a quiet smooth ride for the 1995 land yacht, and I have not been disappointed. Tire wear is non-existent, handling in wet and dry is great. I recently purchased a '10 Infiniti G37 sedan and when the tires on the G need replacing I am going to purchase the Serenity Plus.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H431

After reading all the negative comments about excessive noise and terrible wet traction I was a bit aprehensive about these tires. Admittedly I have only 2,000 miles on the car but so far here are my observations:Noise - They are no noisier than the Michelin's on the Infiniti M35x I traded in on the Optima. I do not find the road noise excessive in any way....  Read More

Dunlop SP Sport Signature Still a Top Choice in the High Performance All-Season Category

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S

I'm a Moderator of an Infiniti EX35 Forum... and if you buy an EX35 with 18 inch Wheels, the Factory-installed OEM Tire is the Dunlop Sport 7000 A/S. These Tires are junk. People on our Forum are getting very poor Tread-wear with them. We have multiple Threads discussing the Dunlops... and most of us can't wait to swap them out with Michelins. Avoid these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I live in Ottawa, Canada where the average snowfall is measured in yards rather than inches. We have had freezing rain storms given the global warming and the Michelin X-i13 tires performed almost flawlessly in every situation. Their only weakness in my opinion is the softer sidewall designed and used for comfort rather than for immediate response on my...  Read More

Ice Traction Comparison of All-Season, Summer and Winter / Snow Tires

You may already know that winter / snow tires offer increased traction and safety on snowy and slushy roads. However, did you know that the right winter tire can also make a dramatic difference on ice-covered roads? Many drivers assume there's no way for any tire to have real traction on ice. The truth is you can improve braking, acceleration and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This tire would not balance on my car...period!! The dealer had to use 24 & 26lb weights (which is unheard of) and they still wouldn't balance. I don't know how many people had the same issue, but i definetly wouldn't reccommend them for the G35x. Infiniti owners, save yourself the trouble and get bridgestone blizzaks.They're not as soft as the generals and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Just acquired these for my Infiniti g37X to replace the OEM Goodyear Eagle RSAs which still had 3/32nds left with 35K miles. They had become less smooth after 20k miles which is a common complaint about the Eagles. Initial impressions of the Kumhos show that it is quieter, smoother, seems to exhibit solid grip in the recent rains, but at a slight sacrifice...  Read More
