Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

When I was looking for a set of tires for my 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum I had my heart set on purchasing a set of Michelin, because I loved the ride quality along with the ice and snow traction. After reading Tire Rack customer reviews I thought I would trust everyones comments, and give the 245/60R18 Continental WinterContact SI a try. I must say I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver LTX

I purchased these tires based on Michelin's reputation. I am a bit biased because I will only buy Michelin tires based on their excellent traction. The tires I replaced were the original tires on my Tacoma 4X4. The original tires were pretty much new, with only 10k miles on them. When I saw The Tire Rack had these Michelin Energy Saver tires on sale, I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is the 2nd set of Arctic Altimax tires for me. Two different Volvos.The traction on snowy Maine roads is phenomenal. If driven through 2 inches of fresh powder this season, slushy stuff, you name it and we hit it this year. My plow guy seems to create a skating rink in our driveway, so I've used it to test starting and stopping on ice and I couldn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Okay, I decided to give a shot on this Sumitomo tires after reading reviews and watching TR comparison vid. Prior to these tires, I had Kumho Eczta and Falken Azenis. These were quite similar w/ Falken having a slightly performance edge. These are also about 40% more expensive than the Sumitomo. The bad news first: Although in the video comparison, TR says...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Have had these tires for 20,000 miles, and in my opinion offer some of the best dry and wet traction I've experienced. I feel very confident with these tires. So far, wear has been good with proper rotate and balance, pressure, etc. If all goes well, I see 45,000 on these tires. Will update later. As for snow, these have been more than adequate in hard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

The first set on another vehicle sold this set. I usually don't buy less than 70,000 mile warranty tires, but the previous set's comfort made me select these for the new daily driver. The wear on these is about 16,000 at the current mileage, so almost doubling the mileage warranty. Still has that quiet ride it had from day one. The initial 100 miles was a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live just outside of Boston so we get the occasion big nor'easter. These tires have been fantastic on both ice and in the snow compared to my all-seasons. I can be out there surrounded by trucks and SUVs and the Fit can totally hold its own now. I used to have to maintain momentum going into intersections with any kind of plow induced snowbanks and now,...  Read More

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

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

These tires have been great. They lasted long, were very efficient and reliable in strong rain, on heavy snow and light off-roading conditions. Only once did I have a problem not being able to drive a steep icy hill when the tires were brand new. The snow was easy to drive on but it couldn't handle the ice. Honestly, I don't know if any other tire would have...  Read More

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

I am extremely happy with these new tires. Not only do they look good on the car but they also make the ride so much smoother. In these few 500 miles that I have tested them, I've gotten all kinds of weather. Sunny and dry, very wet, snow, etc. And no complains whatsoever. I work up in a hill in CT and while it was full of snow and even icy, the car did not...  Read More

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

We were planning a 3500 mile cross country drive and I knew I wasn't going to be safe with the bowling balls my car came with (I bought it used, these were not original equipment tires but budget-minded replacements). I went with the Pirellis based on Tire Rack's review and I am very pleased. Quiet, smooth, comfortable, with remarkable wet traction. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Tires are like speakers. You can have a really, really good sound system and if you put lousy speakers on it, it will sound terrible. You can have a race car and put lousy tires on it and it will handle lousy. Why on earth would you settle for lesser tires on your super-car? The only thing I could recommend over these is the Michelin Cup tires, but they are...  Read More

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

I put 55,000 miles on these in the last 2 years, 275/60R20's on an ecodiesel. I choose them because I needed a heavier tire that would handle mine haul roads, but did not really want to go to ean E range. They are not worn out, but when I am not on the freeway I am on mine haul roads, so I don't try to get every last mile out of a set of tires. There is at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By far the best tires i have ever owned (and i've owned many) for performance. I've had a set on my BMW M235i (non-awd) and boy do these things grip, very sticky once warm! The car does the advertised 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and you feel the acceleration all because of the tires grip. It's my Daily so its mostly City with some Highway. I have done some light...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

With only 13,000 miles on my original set of Dunlop's ( factory) and the need to replace already, I decided to put my money on another brand that I trusted from past experience. While the Dunlop's may have looked a bit sportier, (Michelin's look a bit more utilitarian) the difference in ride and handling is unsurpassed. I feel like I have a whole new car for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I just replaced these tires with new defender tires. The reason was not that they were worn out but a snow storm was coming in. There was at minimum another 5 or 10k left on the tires if driven in good weather. I only rotated the tires once during there life.   Read More
