Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I have 2500 miles on tires. They are very quiet, ride very smoothly and soak up bumps well. I encounterd glare ice recently and they gripped and kept me going straight; they even gripped enough to brake without losing traction. I was impressed as considering it was so slippery that other cars were stopped on the shoulder of the road, but I had enought...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Fun Tires!! I was able to drive in 4- 5 inches of snow and the traction is just amazing. It's hard to brake the tires loose. I had to find a empty parking lot and turn off traction control. The tires also feel great on the dry or wet roads. If your looking for a great high performance snow winter tire I would strongly recommend. Let it snow!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

I replaced my 2nd set of OE Michelin Diamaris due to uneven tire wear, high noise levels, etc. My first impressions were WOW! no noise (low speed or at 85 mph), small imprefections in road surfaces are a lot less noticeable, and handling dry or wet is great. Now that I have more than 2,500 mile on them my first impressions continue.Do they have the same dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I like these tires. I bought these tires several months ago, but didn't get any real driving in because I was having some work done on the car. I'm only writing this review because I'm highly impressed with these tires. Today is 4th of January and it is a slightly rainy day in Western, PA. I drive 60 miles one way to work I do not normally drive this car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I love these tires. I needed a good set of winter tires for getting back into my hunting spots and THESE ARE IT!!! I have never had a good winter tire that did not require 4wd at all times but these Yokohamas are it! I did a little off-road driving looking for a good hiking spot and these really helped get me there.   Read More

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

After I broke in the tires, they stuck to the ground firmly. When the roads are wet the car has nearly all of its grip as if it was dry, given there is no standing water. The road noise is a bit more than I was hoping but the great traction in the snow, rain and dry roads is awesome here in Oklahoma. These tires are little soft but I find that to be a good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

I'm Bummed - bought a set of these 45K miles ago and have enjoyed excellent service from them and now, after picking up some debris and making a slow leak in the shoulder (non-repairable) of one tire, I need a new one and Continental is discontinuing them. These tires are excellent - good responsiveness, great traction, solid braking, quiet, and most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Just installed the Bridgestone WS80 prior to the big Super Bowl snowstorm of 2015. I had been told by tire guys that if I had a good set of all season radials I'm just as well off as having snow tire. Too bad I believed that for too long. After my wife had a very close call on icy roads with my 4 children in the van with her, I thought a set of winter tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Approx. 1,000 Miles so far on my 2009 Volvo S40-R AWD & I am very Satisfied so far with these tires! Driven during the following Conditions so far: Warm & Dry, Light/Hard Rain, Light 2-3 Snow & Ice (Thanks to Maryland Weather).This is my 18th vehicle that I have owned but only my 4th Car/Sedan, most of the others were lifted off-road 4x4's with 33+ Mud...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Upgraded from all seasons to this winter tire. Best decision I ever made, like night and day. They are fantastic on snow, even deep snow. The end of our road gets snow built up until the plows can get to it so it can be hard to start off into the main road, these plow right thru it from a stop. On dry pavement they are a little bit squirrely, but nothing...  Read More

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

Very impressed, I bought these tires so i did not have to change out from a summer tire to a winter one and the reputation of the previous generation of BFG AT's. I drive a combination of Canadian 2wd Highway commute, 6x12 dirt bike trailer pulling and 4wd trail driving with the trailer with a Nissan X Terra 6M Off Road. These tires have exceeded my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

The Destination AT has great on road manners in both dry and wet, is very quiet so far and plows through snow with ease. Off road I use my modified FZJ80 Land Cruiser mostly on sandy beaches where this tire seems about perfect. The right combination between closed and open tread to make it float on top of the loose sand, yet open enough to dig in a bit when...  Read More

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

I purchased OEM 18's and these tires to use as a winter set up in lieu of the 19 summer tires that come standard on the sport package. Considering that these are an all season tire, I am very impressed with their performance across the board.The dry traction is very impressive, allowing me to take off ramps a little quicker than suggested with great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I bought this van new in 2oo3 i just turned 70,000 miles so i do not drive alot(disabled)but for winter tires i have found these better then Blizzak ws70&Firestone Winterforce,and yes useing 4 winter tires does make a differance! I was always the guy that said 2 on the front is all i need as i always run Goodyear comfortread's with my snow tires untill 1 day...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I moved away from the OEM Michelin tires (Mud/Snow) that are a very good tire and if you do off road driving a little, maybe the best choice for that. However, I have had the opportunity to test these Bridgestone tires in snow, ice, rain and more in the first 300 miles and they keep my Ridgeline pickup in excellent control of the conditions. Where these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

AWESOME! No kidding it drives like a 4 wheel drive Prius! Went on roads I would not have dreamed of and could not have gone on otherwise. The tires give great confidence in the control and braking of the car on snow. I was able to follow the 4wheel drives around the city on off beaten paths in two inches of snow today. I have not been able to do that in this...  Read More

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

Excellent tire for mixed off-road/highway driving. Last 2 sets have gone 70,000 miles each.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I live in Southeast PA, and my 3 season tires are Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3s (which I've also reviewed). I purchased the Sottozero 3 for below freezing driving months, frequently harsh winters, and to retain the sporty driving characteristics of my car when road road conditions are good. It's not easy to find a winter tire that is good in many road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

These replaced OEM Bridgestone RE050 rft's which were worn out in back after 20K miles. I heavily researched options and we wanted to stay with rft for the security if we had a flat since there's no spare. While we don't intend any winter driving, we wanted strong dry and wet performance, along with a smoother ride and longer treat life. The difference...  Read More
