Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These Continentals have been the best tire I've put on my Civic in the 7 years I've had it. They were very well balanced from the factory and require little balancing on installation, especially compared to the Khumos I had which were really bad in that respect. Wet performance is night and day from regular all-season tires. I live in a state where we don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

My original tires were OEM Dunlop 245/40/R18 summer tires. The OEM 17 inch size is 235/45/R17, but I bought he slightly wider and tallerF245/45/R17 instead. The diameter and revolutions per mile is closer in the size I bought to the the original tires. From a performance point of view, these tires in 17 inch 45 series provide a softer ride than the 18 inch...  Read More

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

Lasted much longer that I expected, by far! Excellent on snow and in bad weather conditions in general. My car being an all wheel drive may contributed to that. Very good all around high performance tire. Very satisfied with these tires and Pirelli in general.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

This tire provide great dry and wet traction in winter. The dry and wet traction is as good as high performance all season tires. It is quite comfortable and provide good fuel economy. It is a little noisy but not very bad. For slush, ice or light snow covered road it is excellent, provide great grip that you can travel with confidence. When snow is deeper,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More

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

OEM Conti's are terrible. We popped a set from one of our other vehicles on for a quick test and ordered. Night and day difference over OEM. All facets of the tire perform well. Quiet, stable and predictable, an excellent all season tire. This is the first vehicle that we didn't purchase a set of dedicated snows for and we haven't needed them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

The original Hankooks on my Chevy Sonic were absolutely the worst tires I have ever owned. In the snow, you are better off leaving the car in the driveway. I recently put a set of Goodyear Eagle Sport All Seasons on my Chevrolet Sonic LTZ sedan. Huge improvement over the Hankooks. Ride, handling and noise have improved considerably. The car feels more glued...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been completely satified with these tires!!! My Lincoln LS V8 is rear wheel drive, which proves it's own challenges in winter driving. I live in NW Ohio, and suffered a very hard winter last year. I was commuting 130 miles/day for work,,, sometimes through 6 inches of snow... and a couple times on ice!!! With those conditions I never felt as though...  Read More

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

I replaced the worn Pirelli P6's on my 2005 Saab 9-3 ARC convertible with these P7's and I cannot believe the difference! My car drives and rides much smoother and quieter, AND I have better traction and steering response! I have only driven about 600 miles on them so far but they are much superior to the P6's for my average to spirited driving style. I...  Read More
