Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

If you are looking for a smooth, vibration free, ride in an even wearing tire this is NOT the tire for you. It performed well in light/heavy snow and only average on ice. That said, despite perfect alignment, it wore unevenly. If you ran your hand from the back of the tire to the front, it was rough - like saw tooth wear. That translates into loud conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

First impression: nothing special on dry/wet. Can not comment on stability - got this 2 sizes narrower one size smaller rim and one size taller side wall than standard... Light snow ... nothing special, better breaking than forward tractionHeavy snow: Holly...! yesterday we got several inches, but it was impressive when, without any shoveling, i got out from...  Read More

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

Replaced the OEM goodyears with these michelins on my 2010 infiniti g37x. Big difference in the overall ride. Quiet, smooth, excellent grip on dry roads. Best tire I have every driven in any vehicle in wet conditions. Confidence inspiring no matter how wet. Not as firm as the original tires and as a result a little less responsive when pushed. A fair trade...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Had these BFG KO 2 on for just over 20k miles. I have been keeping them rotated and balanced per schedule and I am very happy with these tires. I really like the way these tires look on the Suburban also. I have not had the chance to drive in deep snow, being in the south, but dry, wet, dirt, mud, gravel, grass, etc these tires are outstanding. Tread wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Replaced Conti DWS with these BRG's with hesitation. I've only BRG's on my wrangler and they've been great there. Compared to the Conti DWS's the BRG's were a bit cheaper and had slightly better dry and wet traction ratings, which is what I need in Florida. We have deluges of rain with quick flooding during the summer. My Conti DWS's were very, very good and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

these tires [Pirelly 245/40 yr 18 ultra high perf a/s Plus] replacedContinental Conti Sport Contact 235/35 yr 19 ultra high perf summer tires for improved ride and less punishing to my Golf R. Road/ driving conditions where I lived mandated a little more sidewall. I also wanted better cold weather/rain and light snow capability. Even though I don't drive or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

This set of tires replaced #4 Hankook Ventus Noble S2 A/S High Performance tires which wore bad and wore out around 20k miles of easy to moderate driving. The BFGoodrich tires have better cornering & dry grip. Better braking and acceleration then the Hankooks. The BFs also performan better in not Hydroplaning and does great in cornering & wet conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These tires were much better than the OEM Kumhos (Solus I believe) on my 2011 Kia Sorento SX. I actually had some confidence driving in light/deep snow with the Michelins. They weren't as quiet (or comfortable) as I thought they would be, but they were still miles better than those Kumhos.I've got almost 45,000 miles on them with just a couple flats...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My truck is back.... The old factory Oem Goodyear wrangler sa's were not all that bad. But after 40k miles they were loud, wearing out, and made my expedition ride extremely rough. These tires are not cheap. But if you are reading this you know enough to understand that you are looking into a premium tire for your truck. These michelins are worth the price...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

Love/hate relationship. Tire handles well, great balance of safety in dry and wet, in light snow and wintry situations. WORST noise I have ever experienced from any tire I've purchased in the past 35 years. My mechanics tell me they are not wearing evenly and I am fastidious about correct pressure and rotation. Perhaps I got a bad set, but I'm not coming...  Read More

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

A great Tire! These replaced the OEM Potenza RE050A which were summer only tires and useless in the winter. I went with these so I could drive on them year round and they were exactly what I hoped they would be. 90% of the traction as the summer only, good enough to get around in light snow, quiet and decent wear. I high recommend them as a high performance...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Thanks other reviewers - I bought these tires to replace OEM Bridgestone RFTs based entirely on the many positive reviews by others. Now, this was a bit of a risk because, while enthusiasm for these tires appeared, at the time, to be universal, only a fraction of the reviews seemed to speak to me personally. I live in Southern California where, from time to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

In the first thousand miles, I am so far thrilled with this purchase. Other retailers tried to push me into tires that were much more expensive. Working with a Tire Rack specialist, I decided that these were right for my car, my driving needs and for me. I couldn't be happier. In the northeast, we get all kinds of weather, and this year was no exception. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H431

My experience with these tires isn't as bad as most reviews here, but definitely not what I would consider a pleasant one. Tires were OEM on my Kia Optima SXL (2.0L Turbo). I commute approximately 70 miles each day on highway speeds. Some stop-and-go with traffic. In straight-line dry acceleration/deceleration they're adequate. I really don't push the car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

These tires are great , just put them on my 2009 Nissan Maxima SV , they look sharp and handle great , rides smooth at 80-90 mphThe grip is amazing, had to slam on my breaks due to a incompetent driver running a red light and stopped on a dime . Just replaced some good years that were on it before , will never purchase good year , I'm ruined , these will be...  Read More

Are Your All-Season Tires Ready to Handle All Seasons?

There’s no doubt that when it comes to driving in inclement weather during the winter months, nothing beats a set of winter / snow tires. However, if you reside in an area that receives only light snow and an all-season tire is all you need, how that tire performs during the winter months is typically the deciding factor when purchasing your replacement...  Read More

Best Summer, All-Season and Winter Tires for the Latest-Generation Audi A7

The Audi A7 is an executive level mid-size four-door hatchback, or as Audi prefers "Sportback" car. Starting at just under $70,000, adding this thoroughbred to your stable could be a sign that you have made it. With less than a thousand sold a month, you will likely own the only one in the parking lot at work. Since the 2012 redesign, Audi seems to have used...  Read More
