Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I purchased these to replace the factory Continental ContiProContacts. These have a noticeably slower steering response and require more input around an exit ramp but nothing worth giving it a negative remark. I had expected this when reading reviews between this tire and the Primacy MXM4. I decided on these due to a slightly lower price but mostly due to...  Read More

Putco L.E.D. Bulb Replacements

Have you ever looked at your turn signals or brake lights and wished they were brighter? I did recently, and picked up a set of Putco L.E.D. tail lights, front amber turn signals and reverse lights to replace my current bulbs. The difference was really surprising!  In the past, I've tried the 360 style L.E.D. replacement bulbs, and they worked out well....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Put this on Labor Day weekend on my 2006 Azera. I've racked up 12,000 miles on them so far. Love these tires. They are incredible in the rain and going through ponding on roadways. I use this car to commute 110 miles a day to work. They have been great at road holding, corning, comfort and grip. This is a large high output V-6 front driver and though you can...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

First thing first, I,,replaced the O.E.tires(Bridgestone Dueler),that came with my vehicle when I purchased it. Those tires were not going to survive winter driving conditions.Regardless of your all-wheel-drive system, the most important factor in poor driving conditions, is tire traction.I, previously had excellent experience with Continental A/S DWS, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

I have had these tire a short time, but I am really glad I bought these. I replaced the original Bridgestone Duellers on my 2011 Chevy Silverado because of the tire noise. Also the Deullers were horrible in wet and snow. These Michelins' are great. The tire noise is minimal and they are smooth and quiet. In the rain, I barely have to adjust my driving speed...  Read More

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

Finally had a chance to test these on a bad black ice day and was blown away by how much traction these had. Cars were sliding all over the road, but I did not lose grip once. Same in light snow. Have not had a chance to try deeper snow yet.Dry traction is superb...just as good cornering as the Conti 5 Summers that these replaced. Road feedback is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These replaced OEM ContiProContact tires on my 2013 Volvo front-drive S60 sedan. The old tires only had 17k on them, but one was damaged during a flat repair, and the retailer offered me two new tires plus $130 rebate on the remaining two...I couldn't resist. I have noticed the following: these tires ride more smoothly, seemingly better able to absorb bumps...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is a follow up from a review at 4,000 miles. These are great tires for a sporty sedan. I chose these over Extreme Contacts because of the expected wear factor. 14,000 miles later they have minimal wear. Handling and ride are excellent and give a sense of confidence in rain and light snow. I just did a one-day 400 miles round trip to (cold and icy)...  Read More

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 Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

These replaced Toyo A20's. Had the Toyo's previously and was unimpressed. We had an ice storm right after the purchase of the vehicle- felt like I was on skis. I read a lot about the Alenza's and decided to make the switch. I got an ok trade-in from a local tire company and that took some of the purchase anxiety out of the equation.These are a significant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

These tires replaced original equipment Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring at 70,000 miles. Dry road handling is very good, although not as quite as tight as I would like them, about on par with the Goodyears. They have a very smooth ride. I've had absolutely no sliding or hyroplaning on wet roads. I'm a little disappointed with the noise levels, they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Replaced the Turanza EL-42 RFTs and the ride is greatly improved. Handling is noticeably better and no stability has been lost at highway speeds. Light snow traction is acceptable for an A/S tire.   Read More

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

I purchased OEM 18's and these tires to use as a winter set up in lieu of the 19 summer tires that come standard on the sport package. Considering that these are an all season tire, I am very impressed with their performance across the board.The dry traction is very impressive, allowing me to take off ramps a little quicker than suggested with great...  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 Firestone Transforce AT

Bought a full set for my crew cab on recomendation of mechanic at teh shop I normally go to, never again. I only remembered later on that a 92 4x4 my parents used to have had the same tires, and it could get stuck in less then 5in of snow. On my Crew cab the only time these tires had any wet pavement traction was when I had a good load in the bed, but when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Just put on 2nd set of destination AT on my 04 Ranger Edge. 1st set got me 73K miles. The first 50K miles was highway and paved roads. The last 23K miles was the same and sand/stone quarry. Tire works great in snow, for a 2WD light truck low gear makes a difference. Replaced 1st set due to low tread and visible cracking. Otherwise i would have kept going on...  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
