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

I live in Jackson Hole, WY and needed a tire that could handle the deep snow we get and steep hills that are never cleared while being somewhat quiet on the asphalt once the snow is cleared. I was nervous about keeping my 315 rears as i've been told it creates too much of a snow buildup to move through - I even considered getting a set of 265 rims for all...  Read More

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

Bridgestone Turanza EL 400 came stock on 2015 Lexus GS 350 F Sport. I knew the tire had an unusually stiff sidewall and was prone to flat spots because cars on the dealer's lot had flat spots when I test drove them. I expected to replace the Bridgestones come winter but the ride was just too harsh and I decided not to wait. These Bridestone tires are not...  Read More

Dodge Journey Tire Options for 19" Wheels

First offered in 2008, the Journey comes in multiple trim levels, each with optional wheel and tire sizes. Owners of some SXT and RT models came equipped with 19" wheels shod in 225/55R19 Kumho Solus KH16. Every owner who has had to replace their Original Equipment tires has quickly found that they do not have many options. This is unfortunate as the O.E....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Only have about 1200 miles on these tires but am very pleased soo far. I lived in Wyoming and it is winter here so most of the miles are on snow packed or ice covered highways or on graveled ranch roads with up to 5 inches of snow. I have made a couple of 300 mile road trips and am very impressed with the smooth ride and lack of road noise. I am compareing...  Read More

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

This is the best winter tire I have ever driven on. The steering responsiveness isn't quite as good as my summer tires, but I believe that is due to the smaller treadblocks and the nature of the winter rubber compound. I only notice the change in steering responsiveness when switching back to my summer rubber. I use these tires on a RWD car in Chicago and...  Read More

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

Have these tires on BMW X5 50i and could not be happier. Tires have excellent winter traction and provide a smooth, quiet ride...Got a real test in recent Michigan winter storm. Lots of vehicles in the ditch and the X5 never broke loose on the ice covered roads. Very impressive tire just wish the prices would come down a little. Oh well, I would rather know...  Read More

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

This is the 4th set of these I've owned, and the first for this car. We've now had the car for 5 months and when purchased it had new Continentals on it. Needless to say, our intention was to replace them prior to purchase. One week later we did and are now happy with how the car was meant to be.Road noise is minimal from the tire as wind noise overtakes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

You'll see 75,000 above and go huh? Well, that's because I bought one set, drove 40,000 miles on them, then purchased another set. I've driven my Camaro across the country from Washington, DC to Seattle, from DC into Canada, from DC to Maine, as well as DC to down south. From tackling the streets of Washington, DC, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle,...  Read More

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

I had initially reviewed this tire just after they were installed. I wanted to post an update now that I'm at 5000 miles. This tire gets better with some miles on them. With my vehicle, 39 psi is just right. I haven't seen a decrease in mileage overall, in fact, I might be seeing 1-2 mpg better than the OEM Continentals. The ride is still fantastic and the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I just mounted these tires before the big New England blizzard, as my OEM All seasons were seeing their second winter, and starting to lose some performance, as expected. The Pirellis did a great job in the sloppy roads, with an excellent bite, good comfort level, and pretty low noise level. I didn't rate them in the dry, because I haven't driven them under...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I live in the country with a very long driveway and travel on country roads. So far this tire has been very good in deep snow and on ice. I have not lost any traction in moderate snow depths, or on black ice conditions. I am very impressed with the traction this tire provides in a rear-wheel, high performance car. The price is great and so far no problems in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

These tires have given me the confidence to get through the cold, snow and icy Alberta Winter!! Last year during winter I stayed with the OEM all seasons and let me tell you, I got a few more greys hair because of it! Due to the cars light weight, winter driving was horrendous with the OEM all seasons last year! This winter I put on the Snowcontrol 3 and it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

Bought these tires forma box store two years ago to replace a set of Yokohama Avid Touring tires S (also an nice touring tire). I think the Pirellis perform better, (a little squeal on sharp fast turns) I gentle reminder that I need to ease up.These perform a lot better on turns and emergency turns. The stopping distances have slightly reduced. At almost...  Read More
