Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Run Flat

I bought these during the first snow and ice in the Portland area in December and was eager to test them. Luckily we got a nice storm the past few days and I am sold on these tires. My girlfriend lives on a nice hill where the UPS truck in chains would spin and my MDX with the other tires would slide. After installation these tires climbed that hill like I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

The Michelin X-Ice xi3 is a huge step up in winter driving performance with MSW Wheels compared to the Michelin HydroEdge for Salt Lake City. We've driven them in deep snow, glare ice, and light snow. We've had a number of wet days and dry days. I've been very pleased with the performance in multiple driving conditions. My wife puts a lot of highway miles...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I purchased these at Costco, well, actually I was able to exchange my previous Michelin Tires which were disappointingly loud and not comfortable. Michelin has a 30 day guarantee.Now, these Premier LTX Tires for my 2013 Toyota Tacoma are wonderful! Quiet Ride, very comfortable. Drove to Steamboat Springs, CO and back from Cheyenne, WY...need I say more?...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have always used Bridgestone Blizzak tires for the winter months. This is my first year, first winter in a RWD vehicle. We recently had a nice amount of snow and I have to say. WOW. The Blizzaks deliver the same performance that I have come to expect. Even in a RWD vehicle, I have complete control and traction; even when passing in the not-so-clean lane. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Because a hip replacement made clutching difficult for my wife, we reluctantly replaced our E36 BMW with a 2015 4 Door Mini Cooper S with 6 sp Autotrans (remarkably good, btw - the first slush box I have not hated). Since she was about to take a month long road rip in Feb 2016 from Portland, Oregon across the Siskiyou Mountains to Cal, I wanted to make sure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I commute 180-190 miles per day mostly on interstate under mix of all seasonal conditions and frequent sudden turns and hard braking to avoid sudden traffic stops. I am very pleased with these tires and their performance. Wear is outstanding. I'm at 65K and can still read the snow S on tread. I've actually been considering running through another winter due...  Read More

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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  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 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 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 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 Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have driven on these tires for the last 3 months in (Oct-Dec) Wasilla/Anchorage, Alaska. We have had several Ice/Fog conditions and some snow with several cars that ran off the road. These tires have performed as well, if not better then the last 3 sets of Blizzaks that I have run on this car. I will say this- these tires are worthless until they warm up...  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 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

Q7 TDI owners,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

This is an upgrade on a Chevrolet one ton van 8lug wheel. Original tires were Bridgestone and they were the hardest riding tire. Additionally I wanted to add the six spoke Chevrolet aluminum rims which are 17x7.5 vs the stock 16x6.5. I drive this van usually lightly loaded if not empty. Therefore I wanted a tire with a lower aspect ratio for improved...  Read More

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

I put this set on my 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 right when I purchased the vehicle, so I can't compare it to other tires on this car. But these tires are awesome! They grip in every scenario and perform great in every aspect. My Mazdaspeed 6 is AWD, but when lifting the e-brake up one click (disengages rear wheels), the tires still grab extremely well with 270 crank...  Read More
