Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

...I'll write another review after a few storms. I selected this tire after reading close to all of the 275 available reviews. I grew up in Vermont and moved to Colorado 20+ years ago. I have an '06 Mini Cooper S Convertible, which will serve as a back-up to a leased BMW i3 (which I didn't want to get snow tires for), so in the winter it will be my car to...  Read More

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

All-around-high performing tire: handling and responsiveness are scary good, but noise and ride comfort are top-notch as well. I'm a little concerned that the AWD will chew up the tires prematurely, I notice some slight shredding consistent with the softer rubber compound and the hard cornering I put it through. All in all, happy and confident to have the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I bought a 2016 Toyota Highlander in October 2016 and had the dealer swap out the OEM tires with the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus based on a recommendation by a tire rack advisor. The tires were outstanding on dry and wet pavement in October and November. I thought these were the best tires I'd ever put on an SUV based on the performance over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My set of tires are dedicated winter tires mounted on OEM wheels. I currently have approx 1200 miles of driving in my daily commuter - '17 Volt. As a winter tire, the snow and ice traction is way above and beyond compared to the all season LRR tires that came with the vehicle. Just had the first snow storm (didn't drive through it though) recently but did...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

These are my first set of winter tires and I can only compare them on the car to the summer performance tires that the car comes with. I've mostly driven AWD cars with all season tires in the past. I live in Buffalo, NY (insert joke about how much it snows here). I work in healthcare and need to be able to get to work everyday at weird hours. I bought these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Granted, I've only been on these for a day now, but it feels like I'm riding on couch cushions versus the bricks that were my all seasons. Unsurprisingly, these tires rated #1 in comfort in its class on TireRack. The softer compound definitely helps with every performance aspect. Road noise is comparably minimal since my ears are accustomed to the louder...  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 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Great all-season tire for the WRX, fantastic in the snow for an ultra high performance tire. It should be adequate for 99% of winter situations, as I live in Colorado and have not been in a situation where this tire failed me in the snow, even in 6+ inches. Turn traction control off and you'll definitely be sliding a lot more though, if you're into that sort...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Before I purchase anything I usually do an extensive online research on anything that involves automobiles. After seeing the selection of tires that would suite my needs I decided to go for UHP tires & went on a few sites comparing prices & so on. Decided to purchase the BFGoodrich G-Force Comp 2 A/S due to the fact that the stock tires(Goodyear Eagle RS-A)...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I purchased these tires with wheels for winter driving in North East PA. I live in an area with lots of hills and I see plenty of people slipping and sliding and on rural roads where you don't have a lot of room before you are in the ditch. I really want to stop and turn and I believe winter tires are best for me where I live.I'm very happy with the Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Purchased these tires last year, and have experienced everything from snow/slice/ice to dry pavement in them. They have exceeded my expectations in every possible way, and I consider them to be a major upgrade over the OEM Dunlops my car came with.I was a bit concerned going with an UHP All Season compared to a set of dedicated snow tires, but I wasn't let...  Read More

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

Just returned from 800-mile round trip from Virginia to Rochester, mostly on highways. Michelin Latitude X-Ice 2 provided smooth, quiet ride at high speeds. Vehicle felt very connected to the road on winding highways. Tire Rack did a perfect balancing job on my winter wheel/tire package! Good feel of the road. Handling seems a bit rubbery, but these are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

These tires are everything that I hoped they would be. I live in Colorado, so snow and ice during the winter are a large concern. I've only encountered a small snow storm with these on so far this year, but was incredibly happy with the traction I had with wet/slushy roads. On dry roads, the tires have performed incredibly well with excellent traction and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I just put these tires on before snow storm hit Chicago just a couple of days and it is performed very well in 3 inches of snow. The ride comfort and noise is much better than pirelli winter carving edge that I used to have. The tires noise is the same as my pirelli scorpion verde all season. Very impressed with this   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

The first pair of A/S tires I've had to purchase for any vehicle. Performance is great during the few dry day drive and while the roads are wet. Avoid every standing puddle at highway speeds exceeding 60mph, the tires have a tendency to pull hard to the side of the puddles and occasionally causing a brief ESP warning. The water is evacuated fairly fast, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I had this tired for about 4 months now and all I can say is they perform extremely well in the dry vs my all season stock tires and even perform well in the wet as well. A lot more grip vs my all season tires but rides a little harsher but that a trade off and can also that I have upgrade coil overs as well. So far they are great tires but I do notice maybe...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I bought these tires for my 2014 Subaru Forester last winter, and just had them installed for winter #2 last week. Thus, they are starting on their second winter season, and just in time! Today we had our first major snowstorm in S.E. Michigan and we're at about 8 snow and it's still coming down. I went out to run errands, and drove confidently on all of the...  Read More

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

Great value for the money. Pros: -excellent ride quality -very quiet -good wet traction -outstanding snow traction Cons: -squirmy -almost zero feedback/road feel -slow to respondThese tires have very tall, small tread blocks with deep channels in between. The excellent wet traction, even in deep water, and unbelievably good snow grip (almost on par with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

This is the snow tire to get. I'm on my 3rd set of blizzaks and am very happy with them. They performed well in deep snow in the mountains and also gripped very well in slush / ice conditions. I was surprised with how well they resist hydroplaning considering in Seattle the roads often pool water.The WS80 do have a soft sidewall so cornering isn't great but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

The tires were O.E. on my new 2016 VW Golf Sportwagon. When I purchased the car I immediately got larger wheels and summer performance tires, purchased from Tire Rack, which I installed immediately . I swapped them back to the O.E. all-season Bridgestones in early Nov. with the arrival of colder weather. What a huge change for the worse! After driving about...  Read More
