I'm sure Atlanta Falcons' fans were sky high when their team was up 28-3 in the third quarter. Tire Rack can't help with the team's success, however our new Doraville, Georgia distribution center will help Atlanta drivers get the items they need for their vehicles quickly, and without and shipping fees. Are you one of the thousands of drivers that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

The tires are good for all seasons. Traction is good, not great. The OEM summer tires (Goodyear Eagle F1s) on my car had superior traction -- especially while cornering. You need to lower your speed 5-10 mph in corners with these tires. The ride is slightly less stiff than the Eagle F1s (which are rather stiff tires). Over the F1s I noticed a slightly less...  Read More

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

Overall, I'm quite happy with this tire. It was a huge improvement in wet and winter conditions over my stock tires that came on my Golf. I bought them right before going on a road trip to Rochester, NY, where I experienced blizzard conditions nearly every single day I was there. I was amazed at how well they performed in the snow! They got pretty good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I have had these tires on another truck and loved them. I had the LTX M/S2's, which are the same tires. I have a 2wd with a limited slip differential and have never been stuck yet. I pull a 8k lb boat and have never been worried at the boat ramp. Even at low tide, these tires never slip. I have never been in snow with these tires, so I can't give an accurate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

I simply cannot say enough good things about this tire. It has performed above and beyond in everything I've pitted it against and after over 10,000 miles, they still look brand new.They're smooth and quiet and have great traction. I regularly drive 80mph or more in my Bronco and they're stable and smooth and I never feel any lack of traction around tight...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

Tires came from the factory on the F150. I have over 95000 on the tires after 4 years of use. The only complaint I have is the tires will cup on the front, so they need to be rotated about every 10k miles. Once they cup they become a little loud until they wear smooth again on the rear. This is my work truck so it's loaded down at all times with tool boxes,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These were my first set of winter tires. Have since bought winter tires for all my cars. So I'm a believer based on these tires.Took my new driver sons out to learn how to react to a slide in several inches of wet snow. Had them get up to speed and make a turn. I pulled the brake and... nothing. Nothing more than a little slide easily corrected. One son...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

These are excellent tires as compared to the OEM BF Goodrich Dueler HP Sport which were terrible in snow and slippery conditions. I had to switch them off the CRV due to safety reasons. The new Michelin Defender LTX are an excellent tire for this vehicle in all conditions. Honda should not put on poor rated tires for vehicles in northern climates.   Read More

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

Put these Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tire on my 2011 Acura RL after the Michelin Pilots became lour and unstable at 20K miles. What a difference!! Love this tire, smooth, quiet and very stable for a heavy sedan like the Acura RL. Sold vehicle after 8,500 miles on the P7's so I can't really comment on treadwear, except to say they looked brand-new...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

South Western VA Can see some crazy weather..not as bad as other places but these mountains are unpredictable. we honestly Never know what's gonna happen, so that's why I use snow tires..I purchased these tires in 2015. We had regular snows in January, up until Jonas, and another big snow in February. After taking them off for summer, we had a crazy snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 3

I am surprised the tires have lasted as long as they have. Ford told me 2 years ago I was ready for new tires... that was 10,000 miles ago and I still have the original set installed. I really like these tires, they do more than my driving style does. I have the same complaint though that some others have mentioned. As the tire gets close to its end, the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

New tires are a tremendous improvement over the OEMs although I have to admit that I've lost 2-3 mpg with these tires. I'll take it for the responsiveness and handling that I gained over the OEMs. Hybrid is a tough car to buy tires for. With electric motor, I more often than not spin tires at stop sign or red light. I've learned to ease into forward motion...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Owning a fleet of sedans in New England winters is a feat due to the ever changing weather conditions. Our sedans move people where they need to go no matter the weather so we needed a tire that can be ever capable. Last winter we deployed the Bridgestone Blizzak on the cars; they were a great tire just a bit on the noisy side and wore in odd patterns. So...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I've had these tires for about a month. I live in the Pacific Northwest and in the last month, we have had below freezing weather (icy roads), heavy rain, 8 of snow (rare for us), and slush. These Defenders did great in all these conditions - even on hills in the snow. AWD helps but I doubt the stock OEM Goodyear Forteras would have performed the same. I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I have been driving these big taxicab -like cars for 30 years, always with Michelin tires-usually Symmetry. They no longer offer those, so I tried the Premier All-Season. Well, they are not kidding when they say all-season. I just drove through the middle of the latest New England blizzard and these tire performed AMAZINGLY. They had excellent traction in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

I was eager to get the new Continental Extreme Sport tires installed. It's now been 45 days and over 1,100 miles logged, let's see how they are performing. Recognizing the manufacture's recent successes with other all-season categories, this tire surely had all the makings of being one of the class leaders. Since day one, the Extreme Sport has proven to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

I had a fever, and the only prescription was the ExtremeContact Sport. After my set of all-season tires wore out, I decided to step back into a set of summer "Max Performance" tires. I was immediately blown away with the new Contis. Their exceptional responsiveness quickly brought life back to this 150k mile Miata. That responsiveness is backed-up with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Road test immediately following installation was a mixture of elation and disappointment. Handling definitely much improved, but with substantially increased harshness in ride comfort, and road noise.Followed break-in recommendations, driving carefully for the next 800+ km. Ride comfort improved somewhat. After 1700 km my assessment is performance-wise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More
