Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I bought those tires mostly on the basis of other reviews. I didn't want to buy a dedicated snow tire/wheel set for my M5 and wanted something to work in snow and summer.Bottom line, this tire's traction in snow is very decent... On ice, it's not that good as I expected. The ride is soft and cornering isn't that great but again this is an all season tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I waited several months to post this review because I wanted to see how these tires handled my New England winter. I was looking for that utopia of both great summer and winter performance - at speed - and would last a while. I was replacing some very expensive Michelin's which were 90% of the way to that goal - but wore out quickly (which I accept for what...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver LTX

I purchased these tires based on Michelin's reputation. I am a bit biased because I will only buy Michelin tires based on their excellent traction. The tires I replaced were the original tires on my Tacoma 4X4. The original tires were pretty much new, with only 10k miles on them. When I saw The Tire Rack had these Michelin Energy Saver tires on sale, I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these Sumitomo tires as their specifications (AAA - 600 tread wear) H rated were similar to the top Michelins, Continentals etc specs and were almost half the price. I haven't been disappointed. It a well made, top quality tire at a great price and I'm very happy with the tire performance and the savings!!! It was also very easy through TireRack to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Big fan of Tire Rack, since 1997 every single tire we have purchased has been from Tire Rack. NOW onto the tire review. WOW! Amazing how this tire performs! We've had mixed snow, rain, and some dry road surface condition. The last set of tires we had, more or less took a dive due to control arms and out tie rod ends needing to be replaced and a 4 way...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

After a trip down a snowy Vermont mountain, we realized our ageing all-season tires were not a safe option for the upcoming winter. I bought a set of the Michelin X Ice tires mounted on simple steel rims, with TMP sensors in place. They have performed great in the wet, slush, snow and ice. I knew the handling would not be as tight as the stock Pirelli's, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I am very, very pleased with this tire. I transitioned from some Bridgestone Potenza's which were excellent summer tires and the idea was to get a great all-conditions tire. I am a first responder in a city with poor road treatment in the snow. Within two weeks of purchasing this tire I experienced ice and snow conditions which were very uneasy on the...  Read More

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

All around great performer. A firm sidewall with an HFP firm suspension gives a firmer ride than some may like for a daily driver. Si is a summer drive only toy car. One, long 1240 mile trip was very comfortable in every respect. Total 6,500 miles so far with even wear and no feather, one rotation at 3,400 miles.I just installed the A/S 3+ on a 2012 ACURA TL...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Subaru Outback (2017)

Over the past few years,  the best tires for the Subaru Outback have changed. The last time we discussed this topic in 2014, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus was ranked number one in the Grand Touring All-Season category by our customers, and for good reason! With its smooth, quiet ride and long treadwear, the P7 All Season Plus remains an...  Read More

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

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Purchased and installed these tires to replace the summer only tires that came with the performance package. Definitely a difference between the two. Cold weather traction and traction in snow and ice are exceptional, even for an all season tire. Only have 2500 miles on them so far so will have to update the review once more miles are put on the tires. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Tires are like speakers. You can have a really, really good sound system and if you put lousy speakers on it, it will sound terrible. You can have a race car and put lousy tires on it and it will handle lousy. Why on earth would you settle for lesser tires on your super-car? The only thing I could recommend over these is the Michelin Cup tires, but they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I have heard Michilin tires were the best so I try them on my 2500 dodge ram diesel 4x4, stick, these tires are the best tires I have ever had. Performance, comfort, weather snow or rain. I'm a lifetime customer. I will never go anywhere else no matter how much these tires cost. They far exceed anything I could of imagined.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Amazing tires. In addition to outstanding snow and ice performance, which I expected from the reviews, they are great on pavement. Braking , cornering, comfort and noise are better than the OEM Michelins and there is no loss in fuel economy from the LRR OEM tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Purchased these tires for a third vehicle (2002 Mercedes ML500) which my daughter mainly drives. I worked at the factory that built this vehicle and these tires are much better than the OEM tires were. We just had a snow storm were I live here in Virginia Beach and these tires were phenomenal on the very icy and snowy roads. The wear performance (treadwear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

The Michelin X-Ice xi3 is a huge step up in winter driving performance with MSW Wheels compared to the Michelin HydroEdge for Salt Lake City. We've driven them in deep snow, glare ice, and light snow. We've had a number of wet days and dry days. I've been very pleased with the performance in multiple driving conditions. My wife puts a lot of highway miles...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

My last set of tires were winter tires. I live in Denver and took a risk buying these tires for winter and summer since winter tires noticeably reduce performance. I put these on and for about a month drove on dry pavement and my car seems to accelerate faster and handle way better. I love these tires. We had a dry November but it has snowed a bunch since....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By far the best tires i have ever owned (and i've owned many) for performance. I've had a set on my BMW M235i (non-awd) and boy do these things grip, very sticky once warm! The car does the advertised 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and you feel the acceleration all because of the tires grip. It's my Daily so its mostly City with some Highway. I have done some light...  Read More
