Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

My third set of General Altimax RT43's. First set took an ancient Saturn SC2 and made it drive decently with great traction in all weather, good noise, and cornering, and trend lasted very well. Second set were onto Subaru outback that died a week after buying, but tires were an improvement.Third set is now on Mazda 2012 that had Bridgestone...  Read More

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

I bought these to replace worn out tires on my '99 Tahoe last year and now again for my '12 Denali XL AWD. These tires are so good I had to write a review.The Treadwear is amazing and after 10,000 miles of abuse they still look brand new. They grip around the corners in the mountains of Utah during heavy rain. They handle sand and rock off-roading in Moab....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I installed these tires on my 2009 Pontiac Vibe which came new with Goodyears. I was very dissatisfied with the ride of the Goodyears, hard compound, felt every bump in the road. I actually considered getting rid of the car. Put on the Michelins and thought I was driving a totally different car. Nice smooth comfortable ride, great handling and response....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

I had the older version of this tire on a Hyundai Azera for 5 winter seasons and was so delighted with it that when I needed a winter tire for my Lincoln, my mind was already made up. Still very new, but right out of the tire store parking lot I was astounded by a noticeably better ride, and the total lack of tire noise in comparison to the Grand Touring all...  Read More

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

So I bought these set of tires for my 2017 WRX (Just got her over the summer). I had to replace the stock summer tires with all seasons because I live in Putnam County, New York and we do get a good amount of snow every year. We had about 8 inches of snow the past weekend and I had to take her out, the tires performed better than ever. I was shredding...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

I was initially put off purchasing these tyres by other users' reports of noise levels, but I'm glad that I took that under advisement & bought them anyway. They do whir in the background at speeds below 60- 70km an hour when brand new (perhaps that'll decrease when they wear in), but the noise disappears on highways and to be honest, I find the noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

Tires were bought and put on my wife's car but I drive most of the time. These tires are so much more comfortable than the factory tires (Kumho). The ride is quite and so smooth it seems like we bought a new car. They were a little more expensive than tires we could have purchased but we felt confident they would provide us with everything we were looking...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT51

New tire, recent install. Awesome in the snow.   Read More

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

I just purchased these tires (only 2 and had them put on the front) about 3 weeks ago (late-Nov 2016). I was driving Friday night in Illinois (Just across the river from St. Louis) and we had freezing rain/drizzle beginning around 3pm. By the time I left from work @ 5pm the roads were fairly icy and traffic was going approx. 25 - 30 mph. What normally takes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Grew up in Michigan. Have driven in severe and white out road conditions. Now live in Reno, adjacent to the Sierra and its passes. I have FWD on the Escape, but with the Blizzak tires I can perform as well or better than AWD/4wd vehicles. I took it up Donner pass yesterday, two lane road where they were screening for AWD/4WD or chains. I got the guy to let...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I installed these tires a few weeks ago. Since that time I experienced heavy rain, dry roads and heavy slushy snow. I like these tires a lot! I was shocked by how good they were in two inches of heavy, sloppy wet snow. These tires handle better than the Continental that came on the vehicle new. The ride is slightly stiffer but its not something the average...  Read More

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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased my second set of continental DWS tires today at the Tire Rack. I live in South Bend Indiana about five minutes away from their location. My rear tires were worn down to where the S was gone. This morning I drove over to their office in a snowstorm and could barely make it there. With the new tires installed I drove home in the same conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

My 2013 Dodge Dart came with Kumho KH16 from factory (205/55/16) brand new when I purchased the car in 2014 it had 13,000. 2 years later those tires lasted me to about 56,000 Miles. After doing my own research and chatting with Tire Rack online, I went ahead purchased these Kumho TA71 over the General Altimax RT43 and I believe I made the best decision. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

These tires really impressed me, compared to my previous set of winters which were 245 wide run-flats, which always seemed to lack grip in even light snow conditions...These 225 Blizzak's feel like I'm driving on summer tires in the summer. I have the confidence to pull out and pass slow moving vehicles on snow covered roads, and so far these tires have not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I wasn't sure about these tires as they looked like they had pretty narrow tread for a snow tire. I am glad to say that I was wrong, as they are great in the snow and ice. I put these on my wife's new car and would be in a bit of hot water if they were not the best snow tire I could get. they are. We live in upstate NY and have had several heavy storms...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I am a Michelin lover. Got a set of four tires the other day for my 2003 Toyota Corolla LE. These tires provide a very smooth ride. I used to have Michelin Defender on the car installed by the previous owner (brand new, he purchased them from Sears. Made in Mexico).. I had driven 20,000 miles on them, half of the tread was gone. The car was roudy even with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Found this tire to be pretty tough & ordered a second set after the 1st set lasted 20K. I get new tires every 20-30K to begin with to ensure safety & quiet ride so thread wear is not a problem but the second set was a little disappointing. Being obsessed with quality my tune shop mechanic checked the balance after having the tires installed & balanced at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I moved from Texas to New Jersey, bringing my rear wheel drive Infiniti coup with me. With the original Dunlop all season tires, driving in the winter was almost impossible. Since I drive this car only about 8000 miles a year, I chose to go with XIce Xi3, and keep the snow tires on the car year round. So far, it has been a great experience. The tires have a...  Read More
