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 Bridgestone Duravis M700

I have a 2009 Silverado 2500 HD VORTEC. I have been very satisfied with these tires and was going to replace them with the same tire. After checking on Tire Rack, I am surprised there is so much negative info about the tire. I do some off road driving with my pickup and have only gotten stuck once - to me the ultimate test. I suspect any vehicle might have...  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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am ordering a new set of 4 X Ice for my Audi A4 even though I could still get more out of my previous X ices which are entering their third winter season, but when it comes to snow and ice driving I have learned it's best not to extract the last ounce out of a tread. I love these tires! They handle nearly as well as my summer Extreme Contact Continentals,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I wasn't sure about this tire when I bought it, but the day I got them put on we had a nasty winter storm that covered pretty much all of the north east and I had to travel during the worst of it. At no point was I worried about the conditions because these tires plow through. I also use my car to drive off road in delivering grain and have had no problem...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to replace the stock Dunlop sp2050 summer tires on my Mazdaspeed3. The michelins not only have higher overall grip but ride more smoothly and quietly. They still look phenomenal after 10k miles, with the lowest tire still measuring over 8/32nds with lots of spirited driving. I turn off traction control and spin them at least weekly.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A

These tires came OEM with my G37S, and I must say, very disappointed with these in the wet weather (which ----s because I live in florida). Dry traction is phenomenal, but considering the price on these [even as a 8 year employee with Nissan, service manager] I will definitely go with the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. From day one, off the lot, they ----ed on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A

These tires replaced my OEM, they handle much better. smooth highway driving; outstanding on wet and snowy roads. not intended for tough off road use.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I had these tires since I lived in Buffalo, NY and now in TN. I do a lot of highway driving plus live on a treacherous road now. These are EXCELLENT! Plus I off road to do logging...EXCELLENT! This is my second set!! Will buy again and I hope they keep making them! A great price, great value! Got these in time to move to my new house!! Great product and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I am writing this review as I'm purchasing my second set of P Neros from Tire Rack. First of all, there should be a category above Spirited for the type of driver I am. To make matters worse for my tires, I live in the Appalachian mountains so curvy roads with inconsistent pavement mean my tires don't last long. The hard cornering & braking that mountain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I care about traction more than tread wear, and these tires are it. There are no better tires in the snow, ice and wet, and they do well in warm dry weather as well. The trade off is tread wear, but I'm okay with that. They came as original equipment for the premium package of the Audi Avant, and at first I was hesitant to replace them, but they did so well...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Best tire on my truck yet. Value is outstanding. Worst weather of year in snow I had traction driving around everyone. Ice is ice you have to crawl to be safe. I was parked camping in 6-7 inches of snow on a grade and never moved truck until after the storm and drove out of parked off road on dirt & grass underneath area; awesome. Excellent tread left. Best...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I was lucky that the new Michelin Premier LTX tires came out in June in for my 2012 Ford Explorer. This is the 3rd set of tires I have put on my car which currently is at 99,500 miles. The first set of Hankook Optimo tires were horribly unsafe and I took them off at 35,000 miles. The next set of Michelin Latitude Tour tires lasted until 98,750 miles but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

It just works. There's not much more you need to know. AWD helps but you can certainly screw up with bad all seasons in the snow. Once in a while my tires just lose all traction when making a sharp turn, but you shouldn't be doing that at high speeds on snow on public roads anyway. And let's face it, you don't do off road snow racing.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

This tire was recommended by the Tire Rack and Michelin sites for this vehicle, a 1999 MB CL500 coupe with 110,000 miles in exceptional condition, incl suspension. Tires are 100 H series (135mph max).I have owned many brands (eight by count) and buy Michelin's, due to the consistent performance, durability and quality. Car has the M119 high performance...  Read More

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

This tire is so much better than factory tires. Ride, feel, traction, hydroplane off the chart. Only thing that I make down slightly is road noise. Just a hair more than stock tires. Well worth the improvements in all other categories.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

What a significant improvement over ANY all season tires on ice, light and heavy snow!My 3 month old Dunlop SP sport 5000 tires were rated with the best snow and ice traction among all other all season tires in the latest consumers report survey, but the car can't even stop without sliding out of control when I reach intersections on slight icy conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM

This tire is as about as good as it gets for an semi-aggressive mud tire. My only complaint is wet road traction is a bit unnerving. They do well in the snow, at least the 255/75-17 on my Wrangler do extremely well, some of which probably has to do with Jeeps 4x4 system. They also bite decent on hard packed snow/ice compared to other mud tires I've had in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Commercial T/A Traction

I purchased a set of these for my truck back when I was still working as a contractor and needed tires that could handle snow & mud. Then, I got injured and retired, and got involved with the county fire & rescue volunteers. Now my truck is fitted out as a mobile radio command post and on call 24/7, so dependable tires are even more critical. And these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin my whole life (and driving for 22 years). These are hands-down the best performing tires in winter conditions that I have experienced. This is the second set of winter-only tires I've owned (other set was Dunlop Wintersport M3 in the same size on the same car). I've also driven this car with the stock Bridgestone Potenza...  Read More
