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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Got these tires 225/50R17 for '98 Accord V6 LX sedan (291K miles) on an exchange as recommendation . The Primacy MXV4 had a left radial pull and needed front axle balancing about once a week. After Dealer did aligned the vehicle 8 times and balanced the tires 11 times, replaced every worn out front-end suspension part. I have tried every major tire on this...  Read More

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

Picked this tire to replace the OE Michelin tires which had started to culp at 30,000 miles .. dealer and independent shop both said nothing they could do ... I had rotated at 5,000 miles faithfully. This tire is quieter, rides better and is excellent in the rain. This is my wife's car and I keep it in tip-top condition. Ready to put the same tire on my 2006...  Read More

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

I am a Michelin man. But the factory tire wore out on my CT200H and I was not pleased, dealer said that factory puts on substandard tires and the replacements (same model) would be better. Sure they would... So I put on the P7's. Wow, these guys give the best ride I have had in a long time. Smooth, quiet and responsive. Fuel economy is negligibly lower, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

These tires were terrible on our 06 MDX. Loud and rough, gas mileage dropped noticeably by 2 mpg. Wear was uneven, and no matter how many trips to dealers and shops, always seemed slightly out of balance and alignment slightly off. After 35,000 miles, I replaced them with Michelin Lattitudes. Night and day difference.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

i have an audi sq5, which i purchased in DEC 2013. the car comes with summer rubber so i had to get those off the car asap. i shopped around on tirerack for the michelin's that the dealer recommended, and after i was done laughing at the price, i did a generic search for all tires that would fit the sq5. i came across these Generals and having no experience...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

10k miles and all 4 tires cracked in the tread, Michelin didn't want to cover the replacement of these tires, my dealer wouldn't let me leave the lot with these tires and took it on themselves to put new tires on the car, that was the last Michelin I will ever own   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I have had these tires twice, once on a Subaru and now I put them on a JCW Mini Coupe. The dealer ordered them from Tire Rack for me and put them on before I picked up my new car. It was December in Colorado.I absolutely love these tires. I have used the Blizzaks and Michelins on other vehicles and this is my favorite. The primary thing I like is that the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

When I bought my new Passat I had the dealer pull the crappy Hankook OEM tires and upgrade me to Michelins. The Defenders with a V rating were available so I got them. The tires totally transformed the TDI Passat. It is now the quite riding car I had hoped for. I now have 14500 miles and can't even tell the tread is worn at all. Michelin truly makes the best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Put a set of these on my 1999 Tahoe at 125,620 miles after only getting about 60,000 miles out of a set of Goodyear Forteras. Dealer told me I would not regret it. I just turned 229,485 on my Tahoe and there is STILL no end in sight for these tires. Tires rotated every 6K min, sometimes every oil change. That is the key. Not sure when these are going to wear...  Read More

Don't Let a Little Snow Stop Your Ford Fiesta ST

Did you visit your Ford dealer to test drive a Focus ST but end up with a 2014 Fiesta ST instead? You can't go wrong either way, however it's hard not to be swayed by the Fiesta ST's amazing power-to-weight ratio. 197 horsepower moving a mere 2,720 pounds gives you go-kart handling with plenty of power. This is all fun until winter, as the vehicle's low...  Read More
