Launching last year with much anticipation was Michelin's latest entry to the Ultra High Performance All-Season category, the Pilot Sport A/S 3.

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 General G-MAX AS-03

Had these tires put on 45 days ago - use my car for business travel, a lot of highway but city and sidestreets. Noticable difference in handling and ride - slight hum that has diminished over the last 500 miles. Tire installer said the tread was aggressive - which I take to mean a slight trade-off on road noise verses traction in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KR21

Adding my review mainly because I have read so many bad reviews for these tires on wet surfaces. I have enjoyed EXCELLENT traction in extreme Florida rain. I feel very confident traveling in a pack at a moderate rate of speed in very wet conditions and with almost as much confidence as I do when traveling in the wet at speed in my 2007 Tahoe equipped with...  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 Kumho Ecsta PA31

Living in upstate New York I wanted a tire that would be good in the snow. I purchased these tires last Wednesday, they were delivered the next day and I had them mounted on Saturday. Over the last three days I have driven through driving rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow mix, moderately deep snow and slick roads. Under all of these conditions the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

Bought in April 2010. Noise picking up around 20k mi as well as tramlining. Now at 25k. Some inner shoulder wear but that is unavoidable in the front of the sc430, even though my alignment is set up for max tread life. Have been rotated regularly. Rolling noise sound was getting bad enough that I began to wonder if the bearings were shot; instead rebalancing...  Read More

These snow tires eat up the snow ! I am amazed at how well they perform !   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 Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  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 Kumho Sense

I have driven on this tire in dry, wet, and snowy conditions with both empty and fully loaded vehicle conditions. This tire has exceeded my expectations for performance in all areas. I push my Neon fairly hard everywhere that I drive it and these tires have been great at inspiring confidence in turns, acceleration, and hard braking.The Kumho Sense is a great...  Read More
