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

I have had many different brands of tires on my 170k pontiac. All were in the 400 to 500 utog. All only got 35k , at the maximum. I purchased p7'S because of the 700 utog , and the picture of the tread looked like it might be quite. The p7's have a better ride than any tire i have had. No noise , great on center feel , turn in is smooth and very predictable....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

I live in Chicago. I drive a 6 cylinder front-wheel drive pontiac. I drive the car very hard. I bought these tires after hours of research. I could not decide between a set of winter tires or good soft all season tires. I went with these because they are the highest rated all season tires on this website. I am very happy with them. I cannot say enough about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

Just put these on the 2011 Chevy Traverse and the are much quieter/firmer/more responsive than the Goodyear Fortera HL OEM tires. Not alot of tires for this size, but this is an excellent choice. I have Hankook on my 2007 Pontiac Torrent (Dynapro AS) and will continue to buy this brand.   Read More

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

10,000 miles on a 2006 Pontiac GTO: These are replacements for the previous Micheline Pilot Super Sport tires that wore out very quickly. The Pilot A/S 3's are simply a better tire than the Pilot Super Sports. They have at least as much dry traction and substantially more wet traction. I find that my 400hp RWD sedan, the A/S 3's are LESS likely to break...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Recently installed a set of Goodyear Eagle A/S on my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT and love them. The previous tires were Michelin Pilot Super Sports, they had good traction on dry, warm, smooth pavement, but rode rough, noisy and had a nasty habit of following every groove and rut in the pavement. Scary as -------- in the wet. Only got 20,000 miles out of them before...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

Customer Service: I had these Radial T/A 70HR Tires for 27 years on my 76 Trans Am (2nd set tires and owner of the car since 1976)and finally had to replace them because of age. They were in brand new condition when I took these off of my car....no cracks at all...anywhere! B.F Goodrich wanted these tires for examination and tests so I had them sent there.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

At 40k, I replaced the stock Yokohama Geolanders with Assurance Triple Tred All-Seasons. The Yokohama's still had 7/32, but at about 30k, I started having hydroplaning and noise issues. Also, last winter, the snow/ice traction had noticeably decreased. With a baby on the way, and winter approaching, I wanted a safe tire for my family. Coupled with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

I installed these tires on my wife's 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix and they are 10x quieter than the old Michelin Hydroedge tires that were on it. Out of the 4 that I ordered 1 was found to be out of round but with road-force balancing the shop was able to smooth out the ride with only .75 ounces of weight. These tires are extremely smooth and have great all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

Ok, I have installed these tires on a previous auto (98 Pontiac GTP) and really enjoyed the quality of the tires. I install these on my 2010 Focus SES thinking I would get the same quality and I was sadly mistake. Now, the snow and rain traction is unbelievable, but the tire wear and noise is horrible. I think the wait of the GTP is the big difference, so I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I drive a 2011 Toyota Matrix for my job, I drive about 160 miles a day and the Defender is a very good tire, the only complaint I have at this point is the treadwear doesnt seem to be living up to the specs, they are rotated every 10k miles, now I havent had to replace them yet so who knows maybe they will get near the 80,000-90,000 mile range but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This was the best purchase of tire that I've ever made since I've owned my 2007 Pontiac Solstice! No noise, comfortable and smooth ride. The car feels like it just came off of the showroom floor!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

Haven't really had enough miles to rate these tires fairly, so the rating is based upon the short time we've had them on the car. We have had a slight bit of adverse weather, some ice, some snow, but not really a great chance yet to check them in any kind of serious accumulation. I typically run Goodyear Eagle Ultra Grip's for the winter season, but was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Keep in mind these tires went on a light 2 wheel drive car and they are all season tires. I was looking for a tire that would get a Pontiac Vibe out of the barn during northern Indiana winters without going to full blown winter tires. First of all, this is the 4th set of tires I have had on this vehicle and I put them on in the summer. They absolutely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax RT

I have a vintage Pontiac Firebird with original 14 inch steel rally wheels as my daily driver (12,000/yr). In 205/70R14 there is almost no selection left and nothing with a legitimate speed rating (H-speed or higher). While they are only 'T' speed rated (which doesn't say much) they were the only tires in this size with an 'A' temperature rating - unheard of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these for my new-to-me WRX the day before a decent snowfall in NYC. I was replacing some quite poor NEXENs. I was amazed at the immediate improvement in tire noise, steering feel and responsiveness. Ride quality increased too. In the 6-10 snow fall we had, the car dealt with it easily, without even the slightest vagueness in steering. As a point of...  Read More

High Mileage Tire Offering from Michelin

Michelin, one of the most respected names in the business, has always been a brand that's associated with excellent wear and long treadlife. While the company previously offered the Harmony and HydroEdge with Green X with 80,000-mile or higher treadwear warranties, these products have been consolidated and replaced with the Defender. Like its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

I have always prefered a Michelin tire, and have had great service from them over the years. The prices are high, and I have wondered if part of that is paying for the name? A few years ago, we purchased a new truck with General tires on it, and the tires performed flawlessly. In fact those 11 year-old Generals were are currently on a farm trailer, and show...  Read More

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

After having really good luck with a set of General's Altimax HP on my Pontiac Grand Prix, I decided to try their GMAX AS3's on my Pontiac G8 GT. I cant tell you how disappointed I am with this tire. NOISE! I have full exhaust from the manifolds back and while crusing down the highway at 70-75 the tires were as loud as the exhaust note. Treadware was...  Read More

Max Performance Summer Tire Review: Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

As much of the country is dreaming about warmer weather, taking off your winter / snow tires isn't too far away. Which means we will be able to get to feel the rush of driving our ultra high performance sports cars, coupes and sedans! One of my favorite tires in the Max Performance Summer category is the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position. This tire has...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

I have these tires on a '04 pontiac Bonneville GXP as summer tires. Rarely gets used during cold months at all. On the way home from getting these mounted I had a wheel alignment done as previous Bridgestone potenza tires had severe inner wear. The Bridgestons are the only other tires I have had on this car and the MXM's are far and away a better tire by...  Read More
