Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

So far best set of tires I have ever purchased. Turn in is great, tires are smooth and quiet. Car handles better than when new. Fun to drive on these. I'm 68, have had lots of sports cars etc. Can't imagine buying any other tire but these. So far they appear to do it all.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Best tires I've had, Aggressive driving. I wore them out in 8000 miles doing burnouts and autocrossing the truck. I have an LS3 Corvette V8 in my single cab pickup. When the tires were new, they made ZERO road noise and rode smoothly. I took them through 8 of slushy snow and they performed. I took them through severly soft sand in a well traveled river bed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

68k on these and they have been just fine. Rotated them at 25k and then again at 50k, just now looking for a new set - will easily make it to 70,000. Noise is good on the black stuff, little loud on concrete. Can't really comment on snow performance - car is too light (Rav4 2wd) to go anywhere in the snow, don't get much down here anyway. All in all a great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I use this Mazda CX7 in all weathers around Pittsburgh, with occasional road trips to up-state New York, Canada, and across Ohio. Winters cold, snowy, and icy. Spring fall rainy, Summers can be very warm. Generally pleased with the all round performance and noise levels, which help make this vehicle fun to drive. However, had hoped to get more than 30,000...  Read More

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

I bought these All Seasons( with low expectations ) to replace my fast wearing yet sticky Summer Pirelli P Zeros. When new the Pilots are squishy while cornering even moderately aggressive. This lessens and eventually goes away around 500 miles or so.I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and these tires got me to and from work in the snow all winter. My S4 didn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Rival

Other than their penchant for OPR, the Rivals have been a blast to drive. I still haven't been able to get my limit to match the tires limit, guess I need to try harder. Dynamite in the wet, (on concrete) I was blown away by the amount of grip, the feel on turn in and direction changes. Of course there is a new Rival now, I'll probably try that one before...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I replaced the OEM Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max with these tires. I know it's a small sample size as far as miles goes, and I have not driven with them in the Winter, but so far they have been an extremely nice tire. It's kind of hard to compare a new set of tires to a set that had over 55,000 miles because almost any tire you put on will handle better, ride...  Read More

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

After some bad luck years ago with Pirellis I gave it one more chance...and I'm glad I did. These tires are absolutely wonderful. From New York pothole streets to Turnpike driving, these tires are just right. For what they are built for,they handle excellent in high speed driving and cornering. (yes, ultra high performance will corner a little better but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Just broke in my new Michelin tires on a 1000 mile trip from VA to PA and back and they performed great! They handled excellent on the highway (dry and wet conditions). Going 80+ in heavy downpour these tires kept me in constant contact with the road. Never once, in about a 20 minute stretch of heavy rain, did the tires lose traction with the road! Dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

Bought these tires as recommended by Tire Rack. Wow, what a difference tires make for steering , braking and noise level. These Kumho Tires replaced the harsher and much louder B. F. Goodrich Tires. The car has actually made the car seem brand new. Anyone who has a mid- size car will seem a different animal if you use these tires. You could pay more for...  Read More

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

Had them on my truck for 5 years, put 95,000 miles on them and getting a new set of them next week   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat

I live in Aurora, IL and have to drive to Des Moines once a month. I've had these OEM tires on my BMW X1 for a year and today there was an ice strom in Des Moines. These tires could not have handled the roads any better. Just a really great feeling of control. Ride is good, handling is good, grip is good, noise is good - bottom line, these are really good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

Fine on dry roads, but in my Manual 3.0L V6 Ranger I could break them loose everytime unless i took off very slowly. In rain and uphill almost impossible not to spin the tires. I can only imagine how they would do in a performance vehicle.Forget about these as an all season, snow traction was awful in anything but a light dusting. They worked for doing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

All the things you can measure about this tire are great. Performance is solid in every condition I've come across (no deep snow here), it's a comfortable ride and quiet.BUT - these are the unluckiest tires I have ever owned. 3 of them have been replaced, one at a time, from road damage. The sole surviving original tire still has plenty of tread so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 2050

I have these on my Mazdaspeed3. Originally when I purchased the car I had Kuhmo Ecsta SPT summer tires, which were not so good. When I was looking to buy a new set of tires, I had the option to buy a whole new set of 2013 Speed3 rims and OE Dunlop tires so I jumped at the opportunity.These are vastly superior to the Kuhmo's. I don't know why there are so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I replaced my OE Potenzas with these F1 all seasons. I got tired of having to swap wheels every winter and put on the Dunlop Winter Sports, so I'm trying all season tires. I put them on in April, so I haven't driven in snow yet, but on dry pavement and rain, the Eagle F1s perform as well as the stock Bridgestones. Cornering is awesome. The F1s handle the...  Read More

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

I purchased these because I had good luck with the Goodyear silent armors Tire shop could not balance after multiple attempts. They tried another four new tires , with the same results. The tire shop tried spin balancing them on the vehicle with no improvement. They took it to another tire shop for balancing and no change. Finally went with different brand,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

The OEM tires had a severe hydroplane and wet traction problem so I looked for a wedge design similar to some Pirelli tires I used in Ireland. Found these and my fear of driving in wet weather disappeared. Agree that they are noisy but safety trumps noise any day. They proved to provide excellent traction in our upstate New York winters. Just purchased...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live in mile hi steep mountain terrain. We had a heavy 18 snowfall with only minimal snow plowing done before I had to drive 'down the hill'. Decided this would be a great test to see how my new Altimax Arctic snow tires would preform so launched out without putting tire cables on, which I was sure I would need. Trees & power lines down everywhere making...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

We got the Bridgestone DMV1 tires installed yesterday. We live on a gravel road. It's a mile and half to our home from the highway. It was snow packed on the way home yesterday we took our Astro out for a test drive on the snow pack and down some six inch deep snow so we could test them out. My 11 yr old son exclaimed These tires are awesome! I couldn't...  Read More
