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

Not a bad tire thus far.This winter north of Boston, Ma has been horrible and these tires do not do well in snow over a few inches. Not a bad all around tire. I am anxious to see how long they last.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Last week I put identical sized tires and rims on my AH3 M sport, and my wife's BMW X1. 225-45-18. Michelin x-ice 3.So far, they are the best handling snow tire I have ever used. Dry pavement handling does not feel like a snow tire, but more like an all season. Stability and traction are superb. There is no floating all over the road like I felt with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

I replaced a full set of Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S's with these vastly superior tires after only 24,000 miles on those tires, when they developed bubbles in the sidewalls. I have nothing detrimental to say regarding the Pilot Sport A/S Pluses. They performed well in dry, wet, tropical downpour and winter Nor'easter conditions. In the very few times I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32

Tires are mounted on one of our patrol cars. We have only 3954 miles on them so far. They are much better than any Michelin winter tire my department has ever purchased. Traction has been excellent in the snow and the car stops quickly on packed ice. Driving response has been excellent.   Read More

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

I purchased this tire coming from 21 summer tires on my SQ5. These tires are extremely quiet while still hugging the road. I purchased the XL's and with a 130MPH speed rating, it's perfect! I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a set of winter tires that seems to prefer Michelin, such as myself.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I've had my set for 6 months, and a little over 12,000 miles. I can honestly say that this is the best all-around, all-season tire that I've ever driven on. For city driving, the braking and acceleration, on wet, icy and snowy conditions had been excellent: predictable and sure. This tire's performance at highway speeds ranging from 65mph - 110mph, over long...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is my first set on winter tires and I have now driven these during two significant snow events in Wisconsin. The difference in traction, braking distance, and just the general sense of driving confidence they give you is nothing short of astonishing. Putting these on has made my car's ABS and VSC systems incredibly more effective - in the absence of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Have not had these on the car for long. Just got a blast of snow, about 8 in total. These tires are the best thing I have purchased in years. Grip the road like there isn't any snow on them! What a difference from UHP all season tires. Never would have guessed that it would make that big of a difference. I HIGHLY recommend these xi3 if you do any snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Just put these tires on yesterday, before today's snow storm. I live in the mountains, on windy back roads, with a 1200 foot unpaved, uphill driveway. I'm a high mileage commuter, so I don't skimp on rubber. It's been snowing all day today, so I decided to try out the new X-ice 3's I just put on. These are my 3rd set of Winter tires. Living where I do, with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I'm in sales and drive a lot of highway/Interstate miles. These tires have blown me away in every catagory. Very smooth, quiet ride which is what I was looking for when I bought them a little over 3 years ago. I have also had them rotated and balanced every 6000-8000 miles. If you take care of them, they will take care of you. They are still going strong...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

For RWD owner considering getting WS70:The snowstorm came 2 days ago, and I put this sets of wheel and tires on my E46 Coupe RWD. That night, when there is at least 3 inches plus snow outside. I went out to test drive. (I ran the same car last winter with Michelin Super Sports, and I almost died so many times, pure luck.) OH BTW I got Quaife LSD for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Very disappointed in these tires. We are at 28,000 miles on these tires and can not rotate them this winter due to excessive tread wear, the tires in front have marginally better tread remaining than the rears. The tires are almost shot. This is unacceptable for a tire advertised as a 90k tire. The OEM Michelins lasted 35k on this vehicle, these seem to be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 ZP

Tucker was great explaining what I should expect from a winter tire. We went from being stuck in the driveway with the summer tires, to looking forward to snow so we can drive the BMW. Waiting for a blizzard. Thanks Tire Rack   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

Great tire in winter conditions. The day after Christmas we set up, perhaps unwisely given the forecast, for a family vacation week in Maine. As we left Massachusetts the weather was fine, but through New Hampshire and Maine we were met with various combinations of rain, snow, and freezing rain, and roads with various levels of sanding/plowing.I deliberately...  Read More

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

Replaced Eagle GT A/S after 25k miles, shouldn't have waited so long, as these completely transformed the car for the better. In dry performance up there with dedicated Summer tires, wet traction, handling and braking are one of best tires I've ever owned.Recent ice storm here in DFW demo'd winter capabilities. Was able to get around, alebeit cautiously,...  Read More

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

Had summer performance Goodyears on my Focus ST - purchased car in February, 2013. Hardly any snow last winter, but when the temp was under 35 degrees, they would SLIDE. Put these on in ealr November, and what a difference. In cold weather these things STICK, and in light snow they are really amazing. A little road noise, but not a whole lot worse than the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin my whole life (and driving for 22 years). These are hands-down the best performing tires in winter conditions that I have experienced. This is the second set of winter-only tires I've owned (other set was Dunlop Wintersport M3 in the same size on the same car). I've also driven this car with the stock Bridgestone Potenza...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3

Not a winter tire! Great dry and wet tire but not designed for Canadian winters. Only reason these tires are tolerable is due to having awd. Corning or breaking in any type of snow with these tires is a horrible. I would not recommend these tires for winter driving. Looking to replace tires asap. I have driven on many different winter tires and these are by...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

Needed to replace set of Latitude Tours with which I was very happy. Could not get the Tours again since Michelin no longer made them with the required load rating, Sales person recommended Defenders instead which I purchased. After 3 attemps at rebalancing and an uncomfortable and jittery ride (but very good gas mileage), I replaced the Defenders with...  Read More
