Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

The Michelin Primacy MXV4 is the brand and model I have installed on two Honda Accords. I have bought a replacement set for both vehicles with excellent results on both. Since I prefer a tire that has exceptional handling without flat spots or cold thump, holds well in the corners and has good road feel, the Michelin MXV4 has all this and longevity as well....  Read More

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

Purchased these tires(from a local dealer) based on reviews as a replacement for Michelin MXV4. These are tough tires to properly road force balance. Ride is a bit jittery and after two attempts at balancing (values of 13 lbs. on all four tires) the ride is still disappointing. Road noise is great but will not know snow handling characteristics until this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I've only had these tires for about 100 miles but they are vast improvement over the goodyear eagles that came with the vehicle. The Michelins are much quieter, I would estimate a 10th of the noise that the goodyear's produced.Lousy experience with installer in my area, actually refused to install tires. I had to have them picked up and brought to the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4

Michelins came as OE on 2011 Accord EX-L. Best set of tires I've ever owned and couldn't believe they lasted to almost 100,000 miles. Consistently rotated tires with each oil change (about every 8-9K) at Honda dealer. Couldn't have been happier with a set of tires and working on my 2nd set -- hope that they'll last for the car's 2nd 100K miles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've had these tires for a couple of weeks. The original tires on my XK were death traps. It was impossible to move the car if there was any snow or ice. I mean even a hint. THe car slid or stood still. When it was time for new rubber, (24,500 miles) I knew I had to get an all weather tire.The dealer suggested Michelin Pilot all weather. Of course they also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

2002 Park Avenue with WS80 Blizzak...also see my 2000 Park ave ws70 Blizzak review.My wife needs ice tires this runs more highway freeway and metro streets stop n go lights etc, but also needs to get through deep snow at times. We got rid of X ice 2's (they were used with Buick rims from an old dealer)... a good ice tire but Blizzak has the winter edge. the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

The Honda CRV came equipped with these tires from the dealer. They are very good winter/ice driving around the city and are quiet on the highway. Good all round characteristics. Do not know about tread life yet...warranty says 60,000KM. I will replace them probably with Michelin Xi3 before then.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Without a doubt, this is one of the BEST tires I have ever used on a vehicle! I have about 10K miles on it now & the tread wear is perfect along with the ride & performance. I recently drove from Lancaster PA to Richmond VA in the late winter storm that hit in late Feb and had ZERO issues in several inches of snow and in ice. The ride is smooth and noise...  Read More

Michelin vs Goodyear Tires

Even those who have not done much research into tires recognize the Goodyear and Michelin brands. Being respected brands and household names, they're often sought out by shoppers as a primary choice. Decades of experience designing and manufacturing tires have given both companies a well-deserved reputation.   In order to maintain their good names, major...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Replacing OE ContiProCoontact with 50% tread remaining because of hydroplaning! TrueContact quietness will not impress an Odyssey driver though this is a relatively quiet tire. They will definitely be enamored and impressed with the smooth and controlled ride. This is an outstanding tire. The ride is incrediibly comfortable really smoothing the bumps in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Purchased a week before a 5 day blizzard hit the Great Smokey Mountain. These tires drive through drifts over the bumper with out getting stuck. Yes it's 4WD but it's only a Pilot SUV; if it had been on a real 4WD Pickup, I think it would handled everything. Here in Tennessee, they don't bank corners in the road but allow them to roll with the lay of the...  Read More

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

My IS-350 has the staggered fitment: 225-40/18 and 255-40/18. I average 17K miles annually, mostly highway with aggressive city driving. I wanted summer tire performance with better wear and I hoped that the Pilot Sport A/S 3's would deliver.I bought the car used and the dealer installed Firestone Wide Ovals on the front and Fierce Instincts on the rear. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

This is the OEM tire on my Lincoln MKX. I've actually been happy with this tire and it has given superb performance. I have noticed over the past 5K miles or so that it's beginning to get a bit noisy (especially in the rear of the vehicle) over certain road surfaces. Where it used to hiss it now roars. Concurrent with the increased road noise I have noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Have driven 5000 miles in all conditions, summer and winter. Great tire all around, especially in snow. Had no problem on a ski trip in NYS with all the others spinning about.Bought this Sienna new, originally had Firestone's mounted on and asked the dealer to exchange these from a different model, good thing I did. We live in Cleveland and snow is a big...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

The testing and the results posted from Tire Rack helped my decision to get these tires. I chose them because of the results for snow traction as well as the overall results. Very happy with them, especially considering all of the snow we've gotten lately. They seem to handle better in the deeper snow than a small amount though. They handle rain with no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Great buy! better than Michelin for sure. Gas mileage is down but is okay. better handling,steering, wet traction, good in snow . Tire look great sporty look. happy with tires so far. My old Michelin cracked on the side just after one year purchase car new, dealer said call Michelin, Michelin give me run around, and refuse to stand by their product. I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I'm writing this review after so few miles only because the WS80 is new this year and user reviews are few and far between, especially for RWD. Plus we've had quite a range of conditions over the last 3 weeks: rain, standing water, slush, -10F icy roads, a snowfall of 4 and several lighter dustings. So I can offer more than they were great on the 10 mile...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

The Acura came with Michelin Latitude Tour all season tires. Within a year, the car had developed an annoying drone sound that was really noticeable after 35 mph. The dealer couldn't find the cause so we lived with the noise rather than spend more time at the dealership. We travel a lot so we got used to the dull roar, but when our kids drove the car, they...  Read More

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

Replaced Michelin MXV4s and love this tire and the wear. The Michelins were great but expensive and I went through them in 35K. The Pirellis don't even show much wear at 10K. Had ‘em through the winter, and it was a tough one, and the tires did great in heavy snow and ice. These tires are quiet but so were the Michelins (until they got to about 25K). Looking...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Our 2013 Honda Accord Sedan with the Sport Trim Pkg comes with either Goodyear Eagle RS-A2or Michelin Primacy MXM4. My experience with the Goodyear Eagle RS has been very disappointing and it took my dealer a week to find a 2013 Accord Sport with Michelin Primacy MXM4 on it from the factory. We have a 2009 Civic EX with the Goodyear above on it as it came...  Read More
