Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400

Typical O.E. tire quality and performance. Standard ride comfort, squeals easily during cornering, limited traction in wet and light snow. Compared this tire on O.E. wheel set and Volk CE28n wheel set, identical sets of 225/55r18 Duelers H/L 400. Both tire sets were O.E. on 2015 Subaru Forester XT Touring models with similar manufacturing dates.Currently...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I currently run two sets of tires on my Mustang her in New England, 3 seasons of my Original Stock Pirelli P-Nero Zero High Performance Summer Tires and 3 winters of Driving with my Blizzak Performance Winter Snow Tires. It was time to replace the stock summer tires that had worn down to almost nothing with only 35k Miles.First of all the thing I noticed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 5P

I live in Colorado and have driven these tires in most every condition except heavy snow. Most recently I did an SCCA Track Night with them starting at normal street pressures. These tires are amazing and probably the best I have owned, especially on the track. I've had many other performance all-seasons and these are the best. After a single track session I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The Geolander H/T G95A has performed much better than I'd expected from a set of OE tires. I live in the DC Metro area and since I've owned the Forester dealt with a few major (for this region) and a number of moderate snow events, as well as significant rainy spells. When I was faced with Snowmageddon in Feb. 2010, I found that once I cleared a bit of space...  Read More

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

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX Winter

I live in southern Oregon. Not a lot of snow, maybe three storms of 5-8 inches a year. But we live on the northern exposure of a deeply forested hill that keeps snow for a week or two, often getting rained on. The last 300 feet of drive way is at least 12% grade. I found that these tires would often climb the road in 2wd, when even walking on the road is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is my first experience running a dedicated snow tire read all the reviews plus affordability this tire performance was awesome .. I ran it on a Ford Focus front wheel drive and yes I bought 4 not just the front. All I can say is I will be a repeat customer for these tires👍   Read More

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

Bought these tires as a replacement for the OEM set, and what a difference a good set of tires makes. It feels like I'm driving a different car. I consider myself a very aggressive driver. On dry pavement, these tires are fantastic. They seem to be able to handle any corner at any speed, there's no tire chirp on hard acceleration, and braking is outstanding....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

An standardized usage rating system would be useful for all season tires. At one end would be the Pilot Sport A/S 3. Excellent dry, wet and cornering traction with marginal snow and ice performance. On the other end would be the ExtremeContact DWS 06. A tire biased toward class leading snow and ice traction with average touring tire handling. Both are good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were rated no:1 when I was looking for new tires for the X3 and since I already had them on a 03' 330i ZHP, I decided to get them. Having all wheel drive and some considerable clearance on the X3, theses tires perform better than expected. It was like driving on regular road when driving in 4-5in. of snow. They are quiet, has an incredible ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M

I like almost everything about this tire. Traction, steering feel and handling are very good. Ride is very good, really soaks up surface roughness. Snow & ice performance is reasonable for an A/T but will not compare with a top snow tire. Off road traction is generally excellent. Unfortunately, with age tire has got noisy in 25-45mph range, but at highway...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Mazda's Mazda6

The Mazda6 is Mazda's mid-size car entry offered since 2002. The third-generation hit the streets for model year 2014 as a four-door sedan with options of either manual or automatic transmission. Without a six-cylinder engine option, some may suggest it loses appeal to some people. However, fuel economy numbers in the high 30s will grab your attention. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture APT KL51

This is my second set. I was very pleased with its overall performance. Quiet and smooth on dry roads. It was ok in the snow and icey conditions. Better than my old Michelin ltx. My only complaint was after 5 years, one of the tire steel belt broke causing the tread to Mohawk. There was still plenty of tread left. Warranty was expired. I'm thinking it's an...  Read More

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

I ditched the run flats and went with the Comp-2 A/S and a plug kit since the F30 doesn't have a spare. Couldn't be happier with the performance of these tires. Can't speak on tread life or snow performance, but the tires are great in dry/wet. Tons of grip and confidence in any road situation. The tires do hum a little on various surfaces, but it's a minor...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Was disappointed in the light winter we had but....Wet, slushy, icy,heavy snow; 10 pm drive home, passing everyone, looked down, 75 mph, felt like 45. Pretty much says it all for a snow tire. Couldn't wait to get 'em off come spring, but performed as advertised and at least 3 more winters in them. Couldn't be more confident driving my car in the winter....  Read More

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

A great Tire! These replaced the OEM Potenza RE050A which were summer only tires and useless in the winter. I went with these so I could drive on them year round and they were exactly what I hoped they would be. 90% of the traction as the summer only, good enough to get around in light snow, quiet and decent wear. I high recommend them as a high performance...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I bought a 4 tire set 215/45/17 true contacts to replace oem Firestone 740 on a 2015 Toyota Corolla S. First impression is wow! Based my decision on tire rack test and reviews posted here. Tire rack test results match my sentiments rather closely. My opinion here is to compare the performance against what came on the car. Not to bash the firestones, but the...  Read More

Best All-Season and Snow Tires for Your 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions. The Jaguar F-TYPE is too great a car to store away for months at a time! Performance Winter / Snow tires will give your F-TYPE some grip on cold days and snowy...  Read More
