Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have owned 2 sets of these...first set for a Subaru WRX and now my Nissan Rogue-AWD. We live in the Snow-belt region of NY state above Syracuse on the Tug Hill. As a result we get much snow EVERY winter. These are the BEST snow tires I have ever owned. I have Blizzaks on my AWD car due to the fact I could not get the right size in the Altimax. The Blizzaks...  Read More

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

I love this tire, this is my second set of these. I had them on my 1997 Nissan Truck and knew they would be perfect on our 2007 Pathfinder. The dealer installed the Dunlop AT20 on to the vehicle before we purchased it. After a couple of months they were promptly removed and replaced with the Bridgestones.I feel sorry for the poor souls that bought those...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My first impression of these tires was that they were incredibly quiet and handled much like the all season Continentals that were stock on my car. My last car(Nissan Maxima) was much heavier, and the Toyo snow tires on it seemed to bite a bit more aggressively into a few inches of packed snow at 5 degrees. That could be a factor of the heavier car or the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The noise level of these tires is not much higher than the Pirelli's I have for the summer. I can feel a slight differance in stability but the ride is not bad at all. Get into the nasty stuff and they are simply amazing on the Audi. I have a Nissan Titan 4x4 with new Firestone destination tires also. The Audi with the Blizzaks puts it to shame in the snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A

RSA tires are a dichotomy (extreme good/bad). I am writing to warn that GY must have changed design, manufacturing process/location or materials for the RSA for the worst. Our 2010 Nissan Maxima SV-Sport originally came with the GY RSA tire & we loved it for what it was (all-season performance style tire for family 4-door sports car). It was smooth...  Read More

Best Tires for Nissan Maxima

The Nissan Maxima has been a popular sports sedan for many years due to its great combination of luxury features, sporty handling and room for full-sized adults to fit comfortably in the back seats. I've owned two Nissan Maximas and have fond memories of them. One thing I learned firsthand is that the type of tire you install can make a big difference on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II

OEM on my '12 Nissan Armada Platinum and so far, with only 1200 miles on them, they have below average snow traction. I always slow it down when there is snow on the ground even in a big 'ol SUV but now I have to slow it down even more. Dry and wet traction on-road is fine but seems noisy on certain roads. My previous '12 Armada SL with Michelins which was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

We bought 4 215X45X17 XL Conti Extreme Contact DWS and had them mounted in October 2010 at Martin Tire in Worcester Ma, a Tire Rack recommended service center. They did an excellent job, inflating to 40 psi, did not scratch the allow rims, and it has never been necessary to return for rebalancing. We went through the 2010-2011 winter with record snowfalls...  Read More

Best Nissan Murano Tires for All-Season and Snow Traction.

My in-laws recently purchased a 2010 Nissan Murano SL. They were looking for a crossover SUV to use for traveling and daily driving and this vehicle fit the bill perfectly. While the Murano was in excellent condition, the tires were not. The tires' remaining tread depth measured at 4/32" in the rear and closer to 2/32" in the front. With winter fast...  Read More

Many of these vehicles are coming due for new tires.  From the factory, the Nissan Rogue was equipped with two different tire sizes depending on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is the second set of Firestone Destination A/T tires I have purchased. For the money you can not beat this tire. I have owned 2 Nissan X-Terra's and the OEM's lasted less than 40,000 miles before being replaced with the Firestone Destination A/T. In both vehicles they lasted approximatley 65,000 miles. I am just starting to look at pricing a new set (I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy LX4

I have a set of these Michelin LX4 on my Odyssey EXL. I had always been happy with Michelin in the past on my Honda Accords and Nissan. They are generally more quiet than any other tires of comparable costs, particularly when they get olders (35K+). This set performs well for the most part with no exception. I rotated my tires every 7.5K so they wear evenly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I am from Montreal and ordered them and have them installed in the US. The whole process was smooth.The tires are quite good for winter conditions. I get amazing traction in almost all situations. We have had a few serious snow storms and a few days of freezing rain. I have never had any problems accelerating, braking and cornering. I rarely engage the ABS....  Read More

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

I have read other reviews that these tires tend to hydroplane, but they have never done so with me. I live in Central NY where we average 150 inches of snow a year and I have never even been close to being stuck and have pulled many others out of ditches. Granted I drive an FJ Cruiser with all the bells and whistles, but the tires get some credit. The noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I purchased these tires to replace the Michelin Latitude tires on my 2011 Nissan Armada SL 4x4. The tire shop initially refused to put them on the car, saying that the speed and sidewall rating were less than the OEM. I confirmed through several web sites, my Nissan dealership, and Michelin that these tires are appropriate for my Armada.So far, I love these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

My wife is amazed at what an improvement these Michelin MXV4's make compared to the OE Continental ContiPro Contact tires, which we thought were very good. The traction is improved in wet and dry conditions, and the ride is magically smooth. Much better than the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus I paid a lot more for. Caveat: the comparison is a little...  Read More
