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

(Planning to purchase Goodyear PSS summer tires in the spring.)This has been a challenging winter in Chicago area with significant snow, ice and very low temperatures.

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 Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I purchased this set for my recent 8,000-mile, clockwise trek around the country. Hitting every possible weather and road condition you can imagine - there was a blizzard in NY all the way to MA; torrential downpours and dirt roads in TN and TX - I was able to maintain all legal speed limits with 100% confidence. Being a seasoned track driver, I rely heavily...  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 Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Drove through the mountains in Washington State and Western Canada right after purchasing these tires, and they handled the snow well. Obviously these are not winter tires, but they are so good, I see no reason to buy winter tires for the amount I drive in the snow.If you have an AWD vehicle and do not drive a long way every day in deep snow, these tires...  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 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 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 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
