Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position that replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 on my Acura TSX. The Michelins had poor dry traction as the tires aged and were just ok in snow. The Bridgestones were excellent in all aspects except the winter season. They were terrible on ice or light/heavy snow, to the point that I needed to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

These tires are awesome! I'm driving a 97 4Runner. It had Yokohama Geolanders. Bought the truck used with the Yoko's. I liked those tires and was going to replace with the same until I read the reviews on the LE2.The roads have been awful between Chicago and SW Michigan. Snow, ice, slush, smooth and everything in between. I noticed my old tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

I recently purchased a full set of Hankook Dynapro HP2 tires to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler's on our 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum in 20 P235/55R20. The OEM tires lasted about 30,000 miles with regular rotation ever 7,500 miles. I was a little skeptical about the Dynapro HP2 but have to say, after driving them in the dry, rain and in some light New...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires to replace the nearly worn out Turanza EL400s that came on my used CRV. The EL400s were terrible. Hydroplaned constantly and quite noisy. These Yokahamas are fantastic! Living in the Mid-Atlantic region I've had quite a winter to test these guys! Light snow traction is excellent and deep snow traction is very good. I've been able to get...  Read More

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

I know, with only 550 miles what can I say about these Pirellis? First some background - I purchased these tires to replace a set of Goodyears (new at the time) that came on our Saab when we bought it used. They were simply awful, the harshest and noisiest tires I'd ever experienced, and they just got worse with wear. Saab 9-5's have a reputation for some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Replaced the OEM Continetal Procontacts with these. I live in FL where an Allseason tire makes no sense. The handling, braking, and everything is so much better then even the best allseason tire. On a few corners where the car would whine and dance about doing 35-40mph in dry conditions, can now be taken at 50-55mph with no noise or fuss. Very confidence...  Read More

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

I decided that I needed all season tires to replace the summer Pirelli P Zero's (which lasted all of 17,000 miles and scared the s*** out of me in a heavy rain). I don't have too many miles on the tires yet, and haven't had the opportunity to fully explore their limits, but the car rides much better and seems to be more responsive. I have had the opportunity...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Summer tires are by definition a softer tire, so don't expect to get the 75,000 miles out of a summer tire like you might out of an all season tire that doesn't do anything well. For years, I was just another average person who had no concept of the difference between summer, winter and all season tires. This all changed on fateful day that I happened to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I have only had this tire for a week. My initial impression of this tire is excellent. They are quite on the highway and they provide a nice stable ride. They are a little firmer ride than the Goodyear Wrangler SRAs that I replaced which is just what the truck needed. The truck used to have a little bounce to it turning, braking and going over bumps. that is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These continental Extreme contacts have about 37,800 miles on them with anywhere between 31 to 33 lbs of air in tires, rotate every 6k miles and hoping to get another 6k miles out of them. The word S is worn off the center of (DWS) indicator and they have become sleek on moderate take off from a stop on wet roads.These Contis have the nature of hard ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I bought my first set of these tires two years ago. This review is being posted now that I'm coming to the end of my second set of these. super quiet. I've heard people complain about the road noise, and yes they can be, but on old concrete like on I-5 in downtown Seattle, chip sealed roads or big joints like those on 580 in the Oakland area they get a bit...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Just bought this tires yesterday. Replaced Bridgestone Potenza 970 AS. We live in the South Shore of MA. We got 70+ inches of snow the past 3 Weeks. In short, Bridgestone 970 AS failed miserably. Although excellent in dry and wet, it rated abysmal in Winter conditions. My wife slipped sideways and spun like 3 times that I decided it is time to move on. Got...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

These tires worked great for me from the time I put them on until I replaced them @ 68K miles. They were every bit as good in all areas as the OEM Michelins they replaced. I live in warm climate, so can not vouch for snow or ice conditions, but in both wet & dry conditions, they performed flawlessly. Cornering, braking, ride comfort & noise were all up to...  Read More

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

These Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Plus tires replaced the stock Yokohama Geolandar 91A on my CX5. The difference is night and day. The stock tires were noisy, always. The Pirelli's are head and shoulders above the stock tires, I should have done this a year ago. I have noticed significantly less road noise, much better handling and a more comfortable ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have tried the (oxymoronically named) ultra high performance all season tires from the following major brands: Bridgestone, Michelin, and Pirelli--before trying the Hankooks. The Hankooks are understated in their abilities, but come through when called upon to respond to diverse conditions.Yesterday, when a ladder fell off a truck on the highway in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

OEM tire that came installed on my Honda Accord. I have sold countless sets of this tire when I worked at Sears. So I was very excited to use this product everyday. Honda's are known for road noise so I will say after the tires were broken in, I do hear the Tire Dragon Road noise roar On I-20 all the time. I put a lot of miles on these tires in under 2 years...  Read More

Second Season with Dunlop Winter Maxx Winter Tires

Last year, I purchased Dunlop Winter Maxx tires in the middle of winter for my 2009 Infiniti G37X coupe. These tires replaced the Graspic DS-2 and performed very well in their first season of use. But, how would they perform in season two?  So far, this winter season has provided me with a variety of conditions in which to further evaluate these tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

Just got these tires on sale at tire rack and was replacing crappy noisy nitro motivos which had abt 6000 miles on them with little no tread wear. Always trusted Goodyear and haven't had much success with Michelins (OE on this car and didn't get 12k out of them) switched to Nittos at advice of local shop but they were terrible as mentioned above not to...  Read More
