Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is the second set of Blizzaks I've had for this vehicle and the 6th set of Blizzaks I've had on vehicles I've owned. They are the best snow tires on the market. I drive very aggressively and consistently 5-10 miles over the limit in just about any condition and feel safe. As a hockey parent, coach, player, and ref I must drive in any condition and drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have 4 of these dedicated snow tires on my '08 Subaru Tribeca whenmost of my contemporaries run All Season tires. I have a very short steep driveway and live in the southern Allegheny region of Central Pennsylvania. My driveway also has a northern exposure so it does not melt as quickly as someof my neighbors driveways do. i have great confidence in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I used to swear by BFGs, I had a set of Long Trail TA's years ago and they were some of the best I had ever had. But they changed something, the next set that I bought only lasted about 30,000 miles and handled like ----.So I went on the hunt for my next tire. Tried the brand new BFG Rugged Terrains, after my stock Generals wore out, they were ok, but lacked...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these tires for my lady friend's AWD FX45. This car splits its time between New Jersey and Vermont, and traverses between the two every winter. I drive the car frequently. They are terrific tires on the Interstate and on local roads, both paved and unpaved. I am not consciously aware that I am on snow tires when driving on dry roads, but in snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

Got these tires as the OEM tires from buying the car new. My Jetta Sportwagen TDI has enough torque to break the tires free and activate traction control. This can make it difficult when starting on a hill or on a slick road, since I need to feather the throttle to ensure grip.The tires are a bit noisy on the highway, and tend to transmit even small bumps...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Owners know the SC430 is no sports car (my prior ride was a 993, and I married this car :) . In fact it rides harshly in the city and soft on the highway, and you'd have to fundamentally modify suspension from stock to change that. So I've been trying to find the tire that makes the most of what the car is and isn't. Couple sets of runflats, horrible, got...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

Only 3500 miles so far. Replaced OE Michelin Lattitudes with 36k miles. Was worried about change from V rated to H rated. No problem. My 2011 Lexus RX 350 rides better and is quieter than when it was new. Love this tire, especially the very low noise. This is a quiet tire. Not sure yet how long they will last but they have a great warranty so no worries....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Love it and hate it. I have been using Blizzak tires on my vehicles every winter for the past 20 years and have always been impressed with their performance under adverse conditions. They deliver as promised. However, there is a downside. Two issues in particular. Road noise is quite noticeable even when new, but increases significantly as the tread wears...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had these tires on my car for only 1,000 miles but living in Vermont we have had significant snow, slush, ice and rain for the past month and the tires on the S80 AWD have performed perfectly. Simply put, they perform great with this particular car. On long trips to southern New England on drive payment the tires are admirably quiet, particularly for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

In terms of noise, these tires are a vast improvement over the previous Goodyear Triple Tread ones, with equal or better snow and ice traction, though somewhat lower steering response. Can't make any comment on wear as yet, since they are relatively new.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

25,000 miles and they're worn out. Even when new, they would plug up instantly and will not self clean even in very shallow mud (1/2inch or less.) They give very poor traction on anything but dry pavement. I would never buy these again, and would never recommend them to anyone. These are a poor excuse for an all terrain tire, and don't have the tread life to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (V-Speed Rated)

This is an initial review of these tires, I will be doing a follow up review once I put more miles on them. They replaced the original 16 Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S that came equipped on my Accord sedan. I had them installed and took them on a short road trip the very next day which was perfect for breaking the tires in. I didn't get to test the handling as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been completely satified with these tires!!! My Lincoln LS V8 is rear wheel drive, which proves it's own challenges in winter driving. I live in NW Ohio, and suffered a very hard winter last year. I was commuting 130 miles/day for work,,, sometimes through 6 inches of snow... and a couple times on ice!!! With those conditions I never felt as though...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

This is the 3rd set of 3D's I've owned. First on my E46 330i and now on my M3. Just swapped out for a new set this season and again, these tires transform my BMW into an actual driveable car in the snow. I cannot state more strongly how solid these tires are, and more importantly, how other BMW drivers must swap out their performance rubber in the winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

First snow of the season today in Chicago 1/4/15 and so I took out the good 'ol Civic for a spin with the new Dunlop Wintermaxx and I have only good things to say about these tires. Everybody else was driving slow or carefully and I was driving like any other day. Lots of traction taking off, cornering and breaking. I even took the car to an empty parking...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

The tire is smooth, quiet and comfortable, and offers excellent traction and control in a variety of inclement weather conditions, including heavy rain and moderate snow. It's truly the ideal tire for what I drive (an underpowered all wheel drive sedan), how I drive, and where I drive (central New Jersey). I very much doubt, though, that the tire would be...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

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

This is the 4th set of these I've owned, and the first for this car. We've now had the car for 5 months and when purchased it had new Continentals on it. Needless to say, our intention was to replace them prior to purchase. One week later we did and are now happy with how the car was meant to be.Road noise is minimal from the tire as wind noise overtakes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance All-Season

This purchase was for OEM tires. It's recommended for it's roll ability for the TOYOTO PRIUS to satisfy more Miles per gallon. I am glad the Tire warehouse had them. The trip to sunny Florida from the wintery New York State worked out great. Thank you very much!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I have 2 sets of LTX MS/2 for over 130K and I love them. I got replacements when I still have 4/32 left but just for the nicer ride on the new tires.   Read More
