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

The tires are good for all seasons. Traction is good, not great. The OEM summer tires (Goodyear Eagle F1s) on my car had superior traction -- especially while cornering. You need to lower your speed 5-10 mph in corners with these tires. The ride is slightly less stiff than the Eagle F1s (which are rather stiff tires). Over the F1s I noticed a slightly less...  Read More

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

Overall, I'm quite happy with this tire. It was a huge improvement in wet and winter conditions over my stock tires that came on my Golf. I bought them right before going on a road trip to Rochester, NY, where I experienced blizzard conditions nearly every single day I was there. I was amazed at how well they performed in the snow! They got pretty good...  Read More

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

I purchased a set of these for my eleven year old Audi. Over the years I've run a variety of tires from max performance summer to all season ultra high performance, and comfort was usually last on my list. As I've matured with the car, comfort has been a higher priority than flat out performance. When refreshing the car recently I chose these tires matted to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These were my first set of winter tires. Have since bought winter tires for all my cars. So I'm a believer based on these tires.Took my new driver sons out to learn how to react to a slide in several inches of wet snow. Had them get up to speed and make a turn. I pulled the brake and... nothing. Nothing more than a little slide easily corrected. One son...  Read More

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

I live in Provo, Utah and we are having a very snowy winter. I purchased my car used in September and the dealer had put on a set of Toyo tires that were terrible in the snow. I noticed a huge improvement in light and heavy snow traction as soon as I had the Pirellis put on. Almost as good as pure winter tires that I ran on a BMW. The tires are also very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

Got these put on in CT in late October and have been running them since. Had a few small snow falls in CT so far this year and they have performed well. Last week we had 3-4 inches of light fluffy snow and they did have a little sliding with turns entered at greater than 30mph. Stopping distance is good in snow, very good in dry and wet. Haven't had that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

This review is for the MO rated version of this tire which I purchased for my Mercedes Benz E350 4Matic. As you would expect from the MO rating, these tires ride extremely well with low noise and high comfort levels. The car responds very well with these tires with very good steering feel and tracking. I have noticed no change in fuel consumption. There is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I have had several types of winter snow tires on my Audi's over the years. I shopped around, read many reviews and took a chance on these tires. My driving style is spirited like I posted so I take that into consideration for any tire I own. I took a chance and purchased the Pirelli Sottozero tires hoping they would have decent dry road manners and at least...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I've been looking for a good All Season to replace my stock pirellis on my camaro, and I was mainly looking at the DWS for the snow performance because I like to enjoy my car year round and needed my car to atleast be drivable but these tires blew me away! I first got them a day before a snow storm so I really put them to the test and let met tell you that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is the 2nd set of Arctic Altimax tires for me. Two different Volvos.The traction on snowy Maine roads is phenomenal. If driven through 2 inches of fresh powder this season, slushy stuff, you name it and we hit it this year. My plow guy seems to create a skating rink in our driveway, so I've used it to test starting and stopping on ice and I couldn't...  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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I am extremely happy with these new tires. Not only do they look good on the car but they also make the ride so much smoother. In these few 500 miles that I have tested them, I've gotten all kinds of weather. Sunny and dry, very wet, snow, etc. And no complains whatsoever. I work up in a hill in CT and while it was full of snow and even icy, the car did not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

I only have about 1500 miles on the tires with my WRX and so far am very satisfied with my purchase. We had an 8 inch snow last week, which made getting around hard, but my WRX just drove as if the roads were dry. Sure, I was careful, but I could stop, start and change direction without any problems. True, they are not the best handling tires on a dry road,...  Read More

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

We were planning a 3500 mile cross country drive and I knew I wasn't going to be safe with the bowling balls my car came with (I bought it used, these were not original equipment tires but budget-minded replacements). I went with the Pirellis based on Tire Rack's review and I am very pleased. Quiet, smooth, comfortable, with remarkable wet traction. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

We are into our third winter with Michelin's on our relatively low mileage Audi S4. The tires have been fine--better than previously owned Dunlops and Continentals (for other cars). My only concern with the Michelins is traction in curves. I've noticed that they are a bit slippery in a snow covered, off- camber turn that we go through frequently. On the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I drive from Portland to the SF Bay area every winter. I have come across hazardous driving conditions almost every year, with ODOT frequently stopping all traffic requiring chains in order to drive through the various mountain passes. This is the first year I decided to use a dedicated set of winter tires, as I previously thought that all-seasons with my...  Read More

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

These tires replaced the factory Eagle RS-A tires on my Regal. When trying to accelerate through 1st gear with medium throttle the RS-As spun no matter if it was dry or wet. Which bothered me when winter was coming because they would be worse in the snow. The P Zeros are a world of difference. They ride better and they grip. Dry or wet they hook up when I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II Run Flat

We just got the first good snow storm. Took my car for a spin. Those tires are pretty good. Car handles the road with 8 inches of snow perfectly. So far happy with those tires   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 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
