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 Ice Zero FR

I'm located in the midwest where winter conditions vary widely from day to day. I've had Michelin xIce xI3, and General Altimax Arctics in the past (on FWD Honda vehicles). I decided to try these Pirelli Ice Zero FR tires on my RWD e320. I have Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires for the other 3 seasons, so I'm comparing these Pirelli's to a very well-rated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Hands down the best winter tires I have ever had based on the kind of traction and control they give in the snow I've had Pirellis & Contis previously and the WS-80's blow them away in terms of controlJust tested them out in a huge snow storm today in Buffalo, NY (we get almost the most snow out of anywhere in the country, you probably know that) -- they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Quiet, comfortable, and capable. My research led me to believe these are best-in-class, and my experience so far supports that conclusion. Sure enough, the tires are a perfect match for the character of the G37xS and my driving style. Excellent grip in both the wet and dry and inspires confidence in corners. I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is the fourth vehicle I have put either the DWS06 or its predacessor the DWS on. I have been very pleased in each case. We have the DWS on our BMW Z3 and on our Porsche Boxster and had them on a previous Mazda 3. The new DWS 06 is a bit quieter and has a bit better turn in and retains the excellent ride and grip under all conditions other than snow &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Finally got a chance to try them in the snow and they did great. Much better ride than the original pirellis and they're half the price of the Michelin pilots. I'm thrilled with every aspect of their performance and will definitely buy again.   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 Pirelli Ice Zero FR

We bought these tires for my wife's Lexus over other available winter tires. I was most impressed with the tread depth these tires have over the competition in the same size. I was able to drive home on completely dry roads with which these tires handled great (no noticeable difference over All Season just removed, the noise was less). Living in Rochester...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I bought a 2016 Toyota Highlander in October 2016 and had the dealer swap out the OEM tires with the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus based on a recommendation by a tire rack advisor. The tires were outstanding on dry and wet pavement in October and November. I thought these were the best tires I'd ever put on an SUV based on the performance over the...  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 Pirelli Winter Cinturato

Got these tires for winter on my MINI. I drive about 75 miles per day to and from work. Half on highway and half on secondary roads. I live in the Snowbelt of western NY (think Lake Effect snow). We have had now accumulations of 4-6 increase and single digit temps in the last wee and all I can say is wow. Slush and slop on highway handled no problem. packed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Take this review with a grain of salt as I just had these tires installed. I had quite a few different tires on my 6 years BMW 128i and that car being as tactile as it is, I can immediately feel a the difference from a tire to another with it. I just swapped my summer tires (Continental Extreme Contact DW, which I adore) for these for getting prepared for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I just put these tires on before snow storm hit Chicago just a couple of days and it is performed very well in 3 inches of snow. The ride comfort and noise is much better than pirelli winter carving edge that I used to have. The tires noise is the same as my pirelli scorpion verde all season. Very impressed with this   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Cinturato

Coming over from the stock all season tires into these for winter was the best decision I could have made this winter season. The night before writing this review there was a 12 inch snowfall and I had to travel home from work. There was absolutely no issue with driving, it almost seemed as if the roads were cleared, even making it down my not plowed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Cinturato

I don't have many miles on these yet but we recently had 2 different types of snow events that I've driven on with these. First snow was a very wet and slushy snow, these tires did wonderful the tread design really helps channel the slush out of the tire. The second snow event was this weekend when it was much colder and we had a very fluffy snow. Again I...  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
