Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

This is the 3rd set of 3D's I've owned. First on my E46 330i and now on my M3. Just swapped out for a new set this season and again, these tires transform my BMW into an actual driveable car in the snow. I cannot state more strongly how solid these tires are, and more importantly, how other BMW drivers must swap out their performance rubber in the winter...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Very pleased with the performance of these tires - far superior than the OEM Goodyear Infinity that only lasted 41,000 miles and got up to 48mpg at best with fair performance. With the Michelins at first got around 46-47 mpg, then as they wore in got closer to 50 mpg, with 52 being the best in ideal circumstances (summer, no A/C, etc). Ride is extremely...  Read More

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

This is the 4th set of these I've owned, and the first for this car. We've now had the car for 5 months and when purchased it had new Continentals on it. Needless to say, our intention was to replace them prior to purchase. One week later we did and are now happy with how the car was meant to be.Road noise is minimal from the tire as wind noise overtakes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Don't get me wrong, I feel totally confident driving in snow and ice conditions with this tire. In a straight line it starts and stops very well with very little slippage. However, cornering grip is less than expected and the Macan tends to drift out during the turn in moderate to heavy snow conditions. I have heard that this is a Macan tendency so I am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA2 ZP

Still only halfway through the first winter with these tires, although it has been a typical Chicago winter with ice and snow, and they are performing well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is a follow-up to my initial review of the Envigor when we first had them mounted in Summer of 2010 with 36,000 miles on our Camry. After more than 60,000 miles, my impression of these tires has not changed: they are great value for the money and performance over their life only deteriorated toward the end when tread depth reached about 4/32nds. At that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these as a replacement tire for my Honda Odyssey, they replaced the Yokohama TRZ, these tires seem like a step up from the the TRZ's in every way. They are comfortable riding, relatively quiet (hard to gauge this as the '05 Odyssey has some road noiseRegardless of tire choice). The Avid Ascend's are good in the rain and provide good snow traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID S33D

Avid S33D was OE tire on our Prius. This tire has exceeded all expectations, especially longevity for an OE tire. Still have legal tread depth left and remain perfectly round after over 54,000 miles. Noise is average for a tire while not being uncomfortable, plus they have maintained good performance in rain at the limits of wear. A recent trip in Oct of...  Read More

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

These are very good tires. They are outstanding in the dry and very good in the wet. Very stable and very good steering response. I track my car with Dunlop Direzza ZII ultra high performance tires I put on for that purpose only, and I can say the Eagle F1's 80-90% of that tire in terms of grip. Which is saying a lot because the Direzzas are almost racing...  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 X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

This is an excellent all-around tire for winter driving conditions in the Twin Cities. The tires perform equally well on wet freeways and on snow packed neighborhood streets. Braking action is excellent.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Only 3500 mi so far on these tires. Excellent light snow & icy traction. Just took a trip, mostly dry weather. Quiet for an ice/snow tire & decent dry weather performance. Not sure yet about longevity. Fuel economy good as well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I am thoroughly impressed with these tires. Theyou are far better than the older Blizzaks like the ws70. On icy roads, they grip well and provide good traction. I am surprised how well they do in deep snow despite shallower treads. The big test, however, will be how they perform once they have worn down a little. My ws70s started out well but we're useless...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Excellent tires for the price. One of the best in class for passenger all season. They perform well in the snow for those who don't want to switch over to winter tires I highly recommend these tires. I don't think these tires will last up to 80,000 miles like the warranty says but I'm shooting for 65,000 miles before I have to replace them again. For Prius...  Read More
