Initial Review, 2,000 Miles on Tires
December 26, 2013

This is my second set and a second car and I continue to be impressed. I was able to navigate in the all-seasons for about a week but I had never lit up the TCS light so frequently. After installing these the difference is amazing. You can still get yourself in trouble cornering, but the car is always firmly planted and hardly ever uses TCS or ABS. The biggest difference is in stopping, it stops as if it is normal pavement even in snow and ice. If I had bought steel wheels these would barely be more than the cost of my insurance deductible. I would highly recommend these especially if you are cost conscious since even an accident with a curb or non-vehicle can cost almost as much as these, and when averaged over the useful life of a tire and wheel set is far less costly than any incident. I can't say if the more expensive Blizzaks and such would be better but I would doubt they are worth double the price given these tires performance. This is a must have for anyone living in a snowy climate and daily gives me the confidence I can get where I need to go without regard to the weather. They truly liberate you from a constant fear of being stuck or sliding off the road that comes with winter driving.

These tires are GREAT! The Mazda only has ONE tire available for it (the OEM Bridgestone Duellers), and there was NO WAY I was going to get another set of those! This meant I had to change tire size, and these were a good choice when compared to the factory 215/70-17 size.

The day they were installed, it was cold and rainy out. The tire rode like they were on rails! Since then, it has snowed, rained, snowed LOTS, freezing rain, and cold, dry days. I cannot believe how well these tires perform! We just drove 3000 miles over Christmas, and the ONLY time I didn't feel very confident was the glare ice conditions (with rain) driving thru MO before Christmas. All other conditions were as if it were a pleasant, sunny day!

For the price of these tires, you CANNOT go wrong. It was even better that the Tire Rack installer I chose even installed them for free! I now recommend both Tire Rack and the general Altimax RT43s to everyone! I hope General doesn't change them before I need another set again!

As an aside, I see these can be had in 13", too. My MG Midget may be getting a set this spring as well!

 

Pirelli's New Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 by Neal O'Neal

The newest edition to Pirelli's Grand Touring All Season line-up is their Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. Pirelli designed the tire for drivers of touring and luxury cars that seek predictable handling, a comfortable ride and all-season traction. Their low oil and high silica tread compound helps enhance wet and all-season traction throughout the life of the tire. An Ecolmpact icon identifies the tire as a low rolling resistance option, as well as environmentally friendly.

Molded into an asymmetrical tread design, the P7 All Season Plus drives quietly and can be rotated easily. Its outboard shoulder helps promote crisp steering response without the noise. The four circumferential grooves help evacuate water quickly to increase wet traction and reduce hydroplaning. Low rolling resistance is achieved by a progressively flexible sidewall to cut down on deformation and unnecessary dispersal of energy, thereby reducing rolling resistance.

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus:

"This tire has amazed me since it was installed. Immediately, I noticed a difference in decreased road noise and increased ride comfort. It has been a great tire while driving in heavy rain and when taking corners.Thank you, Pirelli!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited

"Fantastic tire. These tires are fantastic on wet roads. On dry roads, the response is great and the road noise is minimal. 100% recommend!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Mazda MAZDA6 5-Door i Touring

To see how the tire performed on our test track, read "Testing Grand Touring All-Season Tires with a Sporty Edge."

I've got 8000 miles on these tires and just got through 3x back to back winter storms in New Jersey (avg. 6 - 10 inches snow) and these tires are AMAZING! I've got a 2wd truck without a locking differential so this should be the worse in the snow. With these tires I don't even realize I'm in slippery snow! I can get moving without any issues, stopping is pretty good (still have to be cautious as it is still snow...) and I never got stuck even on 30 degree inclines with 4+ inches of snow. Road noise is minimal on the highway and so far tread wear is great. Love these tires!

I could not believe the handling in the snow & ice with these tires. I have been able to maintain pretty good control while driving the local roads which were not plowed real well. Also, taking it slowly, the tires performed rather well on ice covered roads. Stopping in the snow was not an issue either so far. They seem to grip as I am cornering as well. I am not use to having such a tire and would recommend getting these tires. By the way, they are T rated but was able to put them on my Mazda MPV too, go to their website to check if it can be an alternative to use.

Bought these tires to see if they would make a difference on a front wheel drive CX7. Have used them through a few storms this year. Last storm had 8-10" of snow on unplowed streets and they worked great. Some slipping is expected but starting and stopping traction was great.
They are snow tires so I expected sacrificing other performance. Even with this I am very comfortable with these tires.

Initial Review, 1,500 Miles on Tires
February 05, 2014

Recently purchased these tires to replace the factory Michelen tires. I have noticed an immediate reduction in road noise with these tires, and the comfort over pot marked roads has been a great improvement. Today, in Columbus Ohio (2-5-14) we received 6" of snow with a layer of ice over top of it over night. The tires handled it with an amazing amount of ease. Almost zero wheel spin while driving back roads over ice covered roads from the plows, as well as areas the plow missed and my car became the plow. Highway driving over somewhat plowed roads meant lane changes over slush, ice and snow at 30 - 40 mph and I had no issues. Was passing SUV after SUV this morning. Only incident I have had was I hit a rather large pot hole and blew the tire out. I do not think that the tire itself had anything to do with it, as much as it was in regards to the road conditions and the tire size is a low profile tire and they just can't handle impact like that. I would recommend this tire to anyone. I have had Goodyears, Michelen's , etc before and this has been my most remarkable tire to date.

Initial Review, 100 Miles on Tires
January 06, 2014

Needed to get some good all-season tires for my Miata. I was previously on the original tires (2004 LS) which were basically racing slicks. Had zero traction, and was petrified of driving in any snow. I needed something for the brutal Cleveland winters.

Once the General AS03’s were on my car, my new found fear of driving in the snow was gone. I drive carefully in the winter (and like a demon in the non-winter), and as much as everyone thinks a Miata is an awful car in snow, it’s 100% what you have on the wheels. These tires are very grippy in packed snow, very stable in the brown slush, and do not waver on the packed ice the freeways get when it’s super cold. Yes, you can still do donuts and fishtail around the corners when you want to. But if you are an adept driver in awful conditions, this all-season tire is nearly as tight as the Graspix. I say nearly, because those tires are specifically winter tires and their tread is far more snow friendly.

What I do like about the AS03’s is that they are a fantastic middle-ground between winter and summer tires. My previous miata’s Pirelli tires were firm, and the ride was definitely abrasive. If you like that sticky, tactile, feel every bump kind of drive, the AS03’s are not it. The Graspix were absolutely terrible for summer driving, being very spongy in the corners and just basically a “mushy” drive. The AS03’s are right in between; far smoother a ride on dry pavement than the stock tires, but they feel like they handle well in the corners, firm enough sidewalls to take on-ramps twice the speed, but a tread that will let you take that same on-ramp at nearly posted speed in bad conditions.

Granted, I’m only a week in on these tires, I hear they wear pretty quickly, but at this price point it’s far easier for me to replace them every couple/few years than ripping through two sets of tires. Summer will tell when I get back to driving driving again, but for winter performance, these tires are very reliable.

I bought these for my wife as I wanted her to be absolutely safe driving my kids around in the winter/snow and WOW do these tires ever live up to that expectation. I've had a few different sets of snow tires in my lifetime and these are by far THE BEST I've ever had. As men often do, I have tried several times to break traction in some pretty hairy wintery/snowy conditions and you have to seriously work hard to do that.

I'm actually jealous because I have Dunlop Winter Sport 3Ds on my vehicle and that don't even come close to performing as well as these Blizzaks do in the snow and ice. I can't emphasize enough how well these tires do with both acceleration and deceleration/braking. These tires defy physics in my opinion. I can't say enough good things about them. Would DEFINITELY buy these again. In fact, these will probably be the only winter tires I will buy going forward.

I was going to wait until the snow flew to review this winter tire but I'm so happy about my choice that I figured I'd give an initial pre-winter conditions review. Let's just say the only area I dinged them was noise level and if 9.5 was an option I would've chosen it but in whole numbers I had to go 9. This tire is just awesome especially considering how much sidewall I added vs. my 19" OEs. Very stable, no squirm and if I could have rated wet traction an 11 I would have- simply phenomenal tire maybe the best I've owned (Pirelli, Nokian included) bar none but let's see how they handle snow and the way this tire handles I'm not expecting miracles there (not super gummy like a blizzak) but for my less than severe needs could possibly be the perfect winter tire- one that I'd be completely happy running all year. With AWD I imagine I'll have plenty of grip to get to where I need to go safely unlike many ppl with AWD who believe they're invincible in a snowstorm with crummy A/S's when nothing could be further from the truth.

As a compact, light weight car owner, safety with good snow traction was my priority of choosing tires. After stopping the entire traffic on both lanes on highway with my previous car spinning 180 degrees on snow several years ago, I have become extremely nervous and afraid of driving on snow. My car requires tire size which are not with abundance of selections, and previous sets of Kumho and Dunlop Dirrezza were absolutely disastrous. Kumho was excellent in summer, but very unstable on snow and hard to stop. Dunlop was way worse. It was basically impossible to control and stop the car on even just lightly covered snow. Just an inch of snow made Dunlop spin without going forward, and I could not stop my car at red lights several times. My husband did not believe me until he drove the car. Dunlop did poorly in rain, too. I think Kumho was much better. I determined that it would be a serious safety issue to continue driving with Dunlop tires, so I was very happy to trade-in those just 5000 mile tires to get a new set of Continental DWS. It was a big instant relief to drive with these tires I actually felt as soon as I started driving. I finally do not feel nervous driving on the snow, and they kept my compact car going when polar Vortex hit Colorado with 5 inches of snow under zero temperature. Looks on the side wall is not that impressive and it did made a slight noise at first, which soon went away. There's no snow tire available for this car as of today, and I think this is the very best I can get for winter driving. This is a new set and I am not quite sure how long it lasts, but I believe Conti offers 50k warranty. I highly recommend this tire.

This set replaced the Dunlop Sport Signatures which lasted about 5 1/2 years or about 40,000 miles with proper tire inflation and regular rotation. Hopefully, these will perform just as good. I've never used of the brand before but because of the price, specs and included road hazard warranty, it's hard to not give it a try. Snow performance and tread life remains to be observed.

Based upon the reviews I ordered these tires from Tire Rack and they were delivered 10 days ahead of schedule. I live 1 hour North of Pittsburgh, Pa in the snow belt. I had these tires mounted one week ago.

Over the past week, dry road traction was very good. Steering response and ride comfort was tremendous. Also had no issues with wet road traction. The added bonus which I did not expect was how quiet the tire was. I had much less road noise driving 65 mph than I did with my OEM all season tires. Very Very quiet tire for me. I never would have known I had winter tires on my vehicle, except, I averaged 1.5 mpg less with these tires compared to the all season which I expected.

Today was the true test. We got 2 inches of snow overnight. Then freezing rain, then an additional 4 inches of snow, then freezing rain again. It was the perfect playground. Upon Leaving my driveway, my road goes straight up hill. With the 2 inches of snow on the ground, I pulled out onto the road, stopped in the middle of the hill and away I went. Very minimal slipping, No hesitation. Turned around and tested the tires stopping at various speeds coming down the hill in 2 inches of snow. At 5mph I stopped immediately. At 10mph I went about 4ft before stopping. At 15mph I went about 10ft before stopping. I do want to add that the vehicle stayed straight during the 4ft and 10ft stopping distances. I did not slide sideways. I could feel the tires gripping the snow and surface. That was very reassuring.

Later in the day I tested with about 4 inches of snow and slush and same result. Toward the evening it was all rain and the road had been plowed and you could see the shiny ice on the road. Exactly the same results.

In my real life tests this past week, this tire proved it rides smooth on wet and dry surfaces, is very quiet, steering response is very good, it can handle light snow, heavy snow, slush and ice. I am confident with this tire on my vehicle and now know I can go anywhere.

Excellent tire. I bought the tires before winter arrived here in Wisconsin, and I have been impresssed. Handles well in snow and dry traction is great.



Compared to the original OEM Goodyear tires, I can now sucessfully drive in snow. The improvement is amazing as I hardly notice any slipping in light snow.



The only drawback is that the tires are bit on the noisy side, not quite as bad as the OEM Goodyear's but still a bit too loud on the freeway.

Tire is excellent, had them on for the second major storm and the difference is night and day between them and all seasons. After the storm it iced up, they have a hard time getting started on the ice (no studs) but seem to handle ok. No opinion on wear yet, but I intend to rallyX the tires so I'm not expecting much there.

Yokohama's PARADA Spec-X is a Proven All-Season Performer for Your SUV

Thursday, January 23, 2014 by Doc Horvath

Currently sitting at the top of our survey results in the Street/Sport Truck All-Season category, the Yokohama PARADA Spec-X continues to impress SUV and light truck owners with superior wet and dry traction, as well as a quiet ride. Available in sizes ranging from 17" up to 28" wheel diameters, the PARADA Spec-X has built a strong reputation over its life by using a directional tread pattern and wide center grooves to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. Recently, Yokohama added more sizes to provide owners of "modern" muscle cars with confidence in year-round conditions, even light snow. Now, vehicles like the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro can trade their fast wearing Original Equipment tires for extended life and improved comfort.

The range of available sizes means the PARADA Spec-X can be used on a variety of vehicles including:

  • Late-model GM SUVs
  • Cadillac Escalades
  • Chevrolet Suburbans 
  • Acura MDX and RDX
  • Honda Ridgeline
  • Mazda CX-9

I don't understand what other people are saying, these tires are amazing!! The snow traction is incredible compared to my previous 2 sets of tires, I was flying by everyone on a light snow here in Milwaukee. The noise level and comfort level is great, I no longer have to ramp up my volume to 40 just to hear the radio on the freeway. I now can set it to about 30, plus everyone who drives in my car now, comments how quiet it is.

I would definitely buy these tires again.
