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 Defender LTX M/S

I have been using these tires on my full size conversion van (E-150 Half Back) for a few months. They have been great in the recent 18 snow storm, including parellel parking while backing up hill into deep city snow - with only a bit of spinning. With my old tires I would have had to find a better parking spot. Seems I don't need my snow tires anymore...In...  Read More

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

The best non-runflat tires I have ever experienced. Tires change the characteristics of a car, completely : Words to live by. If you are unsatisfied with the road noise, comfort level, traction in wet/snow conditions, you need to try these.   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 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 (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)

Replaced a set of Bridgestone driveguard RFTs the dealer threw on my car to replace the OEMs. Wow, what a huge difference going from a run of the mill grand touring tire to a UHP tire like this. The car feels like it accelerates faster, insane grip around the corners. Heavy rain no problem. Did a run up a mountain where it got it got as cold as 14 at the top...  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 X-Ice Xi3

Recently finished a ~1000 mile roadtrip through the Sierras during winter. These tires EAT UP snow. With these on my WRX, I lost traction (on accident) all of a couple times over the course of the trip. With basic sense (no HARD acceleration/cornering), you won't have any problems whatsoever.Ice traction isn't the best, but you need studded tires or...  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 Latitude X-Ice Xi2

AWESOME tires.....especially for snow and ice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've used winter tires for nearly 20 years and had previously been loyal to Nokians. The winters in lower Michigan are not as severe as northern Michigan so I decided to try the Michelin Ice X and am very satisfied. Great traction on light snow and slush. Excellent control on ice. These are very quiet tires with a comfortable ride. I am impressed. And the...  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 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

I picked the Michelins over the blizzak because they should last alot longer and so far seem up to the task. This review is really a comparison between the Michelin and the general snows because i've had them before as well but on a different vehicle. Right off the bat the Michelin tire drives like an all season tire in weather without snow they're quiet,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

We are into our third winter with Michelin's on our relatively low mileage Audi S4. The tires have been fine--better than previously owned Dunlops and Continentals (for other cars). My only concern with the Michelins is traction in curves. I've noticed that they are a bit slippery in a snow covered, off- camber turn that we go through frequently. On the...  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 Pirelli Ice Zero FR

I'm located in the midwest where winter conditions vary widely from day to day. I've had Michelin xIce xI3, and General Altimax Arctics in the past (on FWD Honda vehicles). I decided to try these Pirelli Ice Zero FR tires on my RWD e320. I have Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires for the other 3 seasons, so I'm comparing these Pirelli's to a very well-rated...  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
