I put these on my wifes van. She uses this for work and vacations. Last year in Chicago we had a couple of 6" plus snowa and a few lighter snowa. These tires were awesome in the snow. Felt like I had awd. On icy roads the Blizzaks are much better confidence around corners over an all season tire. I highly recomend buying a set of snow tires for winter. They even made my brothers 2013 Mustang GT with a manual better in snow than most front wheel drive cars. My wife thanks me every time it snows!

December 12, 2012

I bought these tires last week to replace GoodYear F1 (steel belted showing). I bought this car a couple of months ago. The F1 was at the end of their life, so I can't comment on those. The Continental traction is great for everyday driving and accelerating. Handling is awesome even on wet roads. I can't comment on snow because we rarely get snow. It is probably in the 40's now and I raced a Trans Am red light to red light, easily taking him. The traction was great if you don't dump the clutch or drop the hammer. 540 HP at the wheel and something it gotta give. The second round with the Trans Am. I come to a stop because of traffic and he changes lanes. So he gets the jump coming around me. So I dump the clutch and drop the hammer. My brand new Continental extreme contact start spinning, the back end start fish tailing and then it hooks up and lauches me. These are great all around tires for everyday driving. I'm not a track driver but I enjoy the occasional street race. It is evident to me that I require two set of tires. These for everyday travel and a set for road racing. I will look to purchase a set of 555's and rimes for the rear. The supercharger is a beast and so far nothing has fully hooked up. If it ever does this thing will lauch into outer space. I have a stock set of SVT rimes, so no one carries a road racing tire in 19in rimes. I hope this helps your choice on purchasing these tires. Tire Rack purchase was flawless. I highly recommend tire rack and I search for two weeks on line before purchasing my tires from tire rack. Several places advertise no shipping but when you compare prices that is a false statement. My tires arrived in two days with standard shipping. These guys are awesome, even the local tire dealers recommend tire rack. They can't come close to touching these prices.

December 31, 2012

Let me start off by saying that I purchased these tires solely to quieten down the noise level on the highway. What I was not expecting is the mind blowing amount of straight line grip. My car is modified, and nearing the end of my previous tires life (BFG KDW) I would encounter wheel spin in 3rd gear (in cold temperatures). With the Continental DW's on, I can balls-to-the-wall launch the car wide open from a stop. They hook every time, even in cold temperatures. I am not exaggerating, these have to break some laws of physics or something. I have never experienced a tire grabbing the road this aggressively when the pavement is cold. I haven't tested out the braking ability yet, but I suspect it will be face-warping.

As for agressive cornering, I must say my KDW's were better when they still had tread. These Continental's still corner very well, however the softer sidewall is evident. I can feel a bit more tire rollover in tighter corners. It's really not too bad though, and it's certainly not a deal killer for me.

Anyway, back to ride comfort. Umm, it's excellent. These tires take pot holes like a CHAMP. Rough roads are no longer rough. A significantly less amount of road vibrations make it into the cabin. I also immediately noticed how much more responsive and "lively" the steering feels in everyday low-speed maneuvers. The steering wheel feels much lighter when turning around town compared to my previous KDW's. The ride comfort as a whole is very much improved. I would highly recommend them. Providing the tread doesn't wear out too soon, I would definitely buy another set.

 

Hurst Gives Your New Mustang or Camaro That Old School Look with the Shaker

Friday, December 28, 2012 by Doc Horvath

Ever since Detroit restarted the muscle car war with the new Camaro and Mustang, many people have looked to give these vehicles a retro look with classic five-spoke wheels. In an effort to mix old school looks with modern finishes, Hurst has introduced the Shaker in 20" staggered width fitments for both vehicles. The wheel is also a fit for the following applications:

  • Pontiac G8
  • Chrysler 300
  • Dodge Charger
  • Dodge Magnum
Hurst Shaker
Hurst Shaker
Hurst Shaker
Hurst Shaker


Shaker wheels retain the classic five-spoke design with an innovative design that allows the owner to use either black or gold inserts in the center of the spokes to personalize the application. The inner barrel and sides of the spokes are painted black and clearcoated to hide brake dust, while the edges of the spokes are machined to expose brushed aluminum underneath for contrast. Available in both 20x8.5 and 20x10 sizes, the Shaker wheel is perfect for either a square set-up with the 8.5" wide wheel on all four corners or a mix of the two widths to put the wider tires and wheels on the back axle only.

My 2012 Mustang V6 is equipped with 235/50/18 all season tires. I was sure that installing a narrower 225/60/17 and higher profile snow tire would result in the typically squirmy and soft performance which many poorly constructed snow tires are afflicted with. I can confirm what several reviewers have claimed about dry performance, and after a few days of spirited city/highway driving, I am amazed that I can barely tell the difference from my higher performance Pirelli Pzero All seasons, and the xi3 tires.

I will be in no rush for winter to end as I've been in the past. Will update once I test in the snow. I considered higher performance snows such as the Aline series but I'm glad that I've gone this route, knowing I have a tire that can actually handle snowy/icy conditions. I have no experience with the Alpines, but the common criticism is that they do not perform much better than stand all season tires in bad conditions. That is a deal breaker for this beaver loving Canuck!

If you drive a sport coupe and are worried about driving in dry conditions, don't be. Similarly if you get some snow during the winter, consider passing on the tires marketed as "performance", and get a tire which can keep you safe!

I purchased the xi3 tires with the Elbrus I02 silver painted wheels and they look really great!

October 23, 2012

'13 GT (brembo / track pack) Car came with PZero summer only, which worked tremendously as long as temp is above 50F. No plans to drive car in any snow however in NH we have quite a few days in the fall and spring that are obviously below 50. Wasn't ready to "park it" for the winter so ordered these with a set of ford track pack wheels.

Steering and handling - no noticeable change. Progressive break-away, recover nicely as well. Steering response / turn in just as immediate as the PZeros. Does provide a bit more feedback information through wheel (mostly because of stiffer sidewalls)

Braking - Under hard braking tire does induce more ABS action however still can generate similar braking #s. Wet road braking is probably better than PZeros

Ride / Comfort - Do ride stiffer than the PZeros. Road noise is lower. No change in tracking for car

Wet traction is great; equal to PZero. Zero issue with hydro-planning.

Dry traction is more than adequate but not nearly the bite that PZeros have (provided it was 50 degrees out). My best 0-60 time on Pzero was 4.2 with these it's 4.5 (according to onboard track app)

Overall = Good looking tire, tremendous in wet conditions, rides very quiet. Ride is stiffer and dry-road traction is 90% as good as summer only tires.

Tire-Rack Service : Ordered tires at 3:00pm on monday afternoon. Had them on my car by 10AM tuesday (next day). Wheel balance is spot-on.. no shakes or vibrations on speeds fast enough for a few week stint in the pokey ;)

The tire sticks better after the heat is built up in the tread, and over heating has not been an issue. turn in and overall grip is excellent. traction on acceleration seems to be getting better as the tires wear. defenetly want to go to the 315 for 2013.

I installed these tires on my 1965 289 Mustang along with a new set of American Racing Torq Thrust chrome wheels. I have 225 45 ZR 17s on the front on 17x7 wheels and 235 45 ZR 17s on the rear on 17x8 wheels. What a huge difference over the 15x7 wheels and off-brand tires on the car before! The biggest difference I see is in the turn-in rate. These tires really turn quickly. The car also stops more quickly. And the ride is fantastic for a 17" tire. They are not harsh at all over bumps and on a recent 100-mile round trip where we drove on a 4-lane US highway, they rode so smoothly.
In addition to all of that, the price on these tires is very appealing. They also have a great sidewall appearance and tread appearance. And this may or may not matter to some of you but these tires take Armor All (and other such products) very well. They are as shiny as any tires I have ever seen. That is of great importance to me.
I have had BF Goodrich tires for many years and believe their quality is unbeatable for the price. They are especially well known for their high-performance image and that is a big reason I chose this tire for my Mustang. I like Michelin tires a lot and have them on my Cadillac and my wife's Kia but Michelin does not seem to fit the high-performance mold I desire in a tire for the Mustang.
So I would highly recommend these tires. I have a 2004 Corvette which still has its original tires but when and if I do have to replace them, I will DEFINITELY install the BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Comp 2 tires. You can't beat them on a high-performance car.
Thank you for reading this review.

September 09, 2012

Don't get me started talking about how amazing these tires are. I tell people to go to Tirerack and read the reviews for themselves. It is the most amazing and important transformation I've ever made to a vehicle. I was about to buy a cheap super old Jeep Cherokee off Craigslist just to drive in winter. My rear wheel drive Mercedes with the then 18 inch summer tires got me stuck at work once. I sat and watched as others in Civics drove up the garage ramp with ease. That was the day I learned the downside to my car. That was then.

After reading reviews I was inspired to go out in a snow storm, so I went to Burger King and filmed a new Mustang running stop signs and losing traction in the intersection. I wished I could tell him about these tires. My co-worker abandoned her stuck Nissan in the middle of the road and walked home at midnight. In the DC area you see so many abandoned cars covered in roof deep dirty snow that was pushed there by snow plows. I saw a couple of Mercedes Benzes (sad sad SLK too). I just wish I could tell them about these tires, I don't get stuck anymore. If they weren't on my car I won't believe any of this. They are so nice/comfortable to ride on compared to my 19s, that I actually have them on the car now. Bad thing to do I know but I love the ride. I no longer fear hitting infamous DC potholes so much. I bought the tires and wheels here on Tirerack. Mounted and balanced. I was blown away by the tread. I call my 2 door Mercedes - The Truck.

Don't miss work. Amaze your friends. Amaze your Jeep driving spouse. He has big dirt tires that ruled in the 24 inches of snow we had in recent years, but in light snow his tires have no traction, left me spinning at a light for awhile. He now wants these Generals, he loves the wet traction on them. Look at owner videos on YouTube to see how unstoppable they are. I feel like I wanna buy extra sets in case they stop making them. Who needs AWD or 4matic when you have these tires?

I was very surprised at the winter/snow performance of these tires. I drive a 2002 Mustang GT, which can be interesting with a dusting of snow but I drove through all the the snow we had the winter before last in NY. I did not have a single problem. For winter driving on a rear wheel drive car, I would suggest these tires.

Wet driving was better than expected as well.

They are not as responsive as the O.E. tires on dry conditions when cornering but do offer a slightly softer ride.

The tread life could be better but there are always trade offs for getting what you want out of a tire. I wanted to make sure I be able to drive my car in all weather conditions, which these tires accomplished nicely. Since I am not driving the Canon Ball Run to work everyday, the performance was not an issue.

These tires came with the car when purchased new. OEM tire pressures are low for my liking on the Malibu and we wanted to maximise fuel economy. I adjusted presures to 42psi front and 38psi rear. For comparison only, vehicle was driven in the SF Bay area, in and around northern Cal for the first half of the tire life with the second half in Phoenix Arizona. The 08 Chevy Malibu is not a performance car and is not meant to be driven like one, niether are these tires. If you want a performance car and tires buy a Corvette, Camaro, GT500 Mustang and hit the track.
The Chevy Malibu has been operated as it has been designed along with the tires that were put on it. They handle very good in wet and dry conditions and are very pradictable with good feedback through the steering wheel. In the twisty mountain roads such as driving to Yosemite in Northern Cal or up to Jerome in Northern Arizona these tires performed very well with no issues, even in light snow conditions. At Freeway speeds from 55mph to 80mph they handled great. City mpg was at 23mpg, freeway 31mpg with these tires. Tires have been rotated every 5 to 7k miles and wheel alignment checked if a problem was noticed such as a drift or pull when driving.
If a tire shop tells you not to buy these tires because there are better ones out there, they are just trying to push what they want to sell. Not what's best for you, your car and what it was designed for.

I've had these tires for over a year now and I LOVE THEM!!! I used to have a 95 mustang convertible that I refurbished and wish I had known about these tires then. I got these tires last year right around the time the DC/VA/MD area was hit with crazy storms and we had flooding everywhere! I drive 66 miles daily to and from work...mostly spend time on the highway and let me tell you these bad boys were awesome! No hydroplaing, skidding, etc, took everything at regular speed while everyone else left and right were hyrdoing everywhere (I felt like I was in a commercial). Anyone who drives a rear wheel drive car knows all to well how easy it can be to bust a donut just about anywhere especially if the road is slick.I really feel safe with these tires. I am one of those people who likes to hear the road beneath them so noise was not an issue. Its a great combo of preformance and touring. I highly recommend them.

I have driven these tires until the wear indicators were flat with the tread. I got roughly 47,000 miles out of them (rounding to the nearest 500). I drive a 1994 Mustang GT, and my driving style is very spirited. I was not gentle with these tires, I did not baby them at all and to get as many miles out of them as I did, I'm truly impressed! The only thing I will do differently with my next set of tires is rotate them at EVERY oil change (5k miles). This is most likely due to my driving style. I think I may get some additional miles out of them with the more frequent rotation.

Driving in the wet / rain was excellent in the first half of the tread life. For the second half, and just before they needed to be replaced the wet driving took a little more care. Using common sense and slowing down when water is ponding on the road was necessary as the tread life dwindled.

I also had the opportunity to drive in light snow with this tire. This is obviously NOT a snow tire, but it did get me home before the snow storm was too much to handle.

All in all this is a FANTASTIC tire. I am on my second set for this car and recommend these to my fellow mustang owners. The cornering / handling in dry weather was outstanding. Definitely a perfect match for my driving style. I would like to note that I have 2003 mustang Mach 1 wheels on the car (17x8 rim). The tire size mounted is 235 50 17 which gives slightly more side wall. This did NOT impair performance but it did fill out the wheel well more since the car is not lowered. I also have a set of these tires on a 2005 mustnag v6 with 18x8.5 2008 GT wheels on it and they work perfectly.

This rear wheel drive car was essentially un-drivable in snow with the all season tires we had on it. Only had one small snow storm since putting these tires on - but clearly vast improvement. Tested on very steep & curving road and made it with no problem - just some very slight spinning - on very steep section - but kept going. Would not have made it up said road at all with prior tires. Have same tires on my Mazda Speed3 and they are even better on that front wheel drive car - will pull thru snow even when touching front bumper & dragging bottom of chassis. Dry weather performance on the Mustang was no worse than the prior all season tires. Obviously not as good as high performance summer tires I use on Speed3 - but that is the nature & trade-off of dedicated snow tires.
