Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

My original street tires were worn out in the mountains of NorCal. They served me well, but they were street tires, and on a dry summer day made for some spirited tight corners on the sierra nevada roads. The problem is, I needed something to get me to the mountains during winter,and the stock tires didn't do it for me. Fast forward and I move to Michigan....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

New car OE on 2017 Mazda6 Touring. I see there is a specific tread design for the Mazda6 according to TR. My first impression of the Mazda6--I've been car shopping for many months, have driven numerous others including Optima, Sonata, Elantra, Mazda3, etc., was, this Mazda6 is CONNECTED! Is it the tires or the tire size? The setup? I can't say.I can say that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS 60

Initial thoughts after 300 miles.Very little road noise compares to oem contitrac. Good handling and dry traction. Tires were easily balanced at the local tire shop, North Country Tires in Blaine MN. The treads don't look too aggressive and I see a good amount sipes. Haven't tried it in wet condition yet, it's been dry during the last month. So far so...  Read More

Fast shipment, good service at one of there installers and a better price than I was able to...  Read More

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

I bought my car lightly used with 32000 kilometers on it which translates to roughly 20,000 miles. When I got it it had the Pirelli P6 Four Seasons tires which, until I got these installed, I thought were pretty good. With the P6 4S I found turn-in and general cornering stability a little sloppy which I attributed to not having the sports suspension on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I drive for UBER and after researching tires and shopping around I chose this tire based on and existing comparing test available from TireRack. I put on about 3000 miles a month on these tires (27,000 total since I bought them in March) but I service the car every 5K miles and make sure tires are rotated. Its an excellent tire, quiet, handles well,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Replaced the Michelin OEM tires with these. Didn't really see any change in mpg but they are much quieter and handled great. I'm talking mini van handling not sedan. Only now with 67k on them have they begun to sqeal on corners, but there's only 3/8 tread left. Really loved the comfort level and smoothness over the entire life of tire. Would buy again....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These are the best tires I have owned in 45 years in all categories. My research was primarily on tire racks site. My s2000 handles incredibly now and much much better than the previous set of bf Goodrich tires. The ride is smooth and somewhat luxurious considering my suspension and the known performance capabilities of this sports car. The rubber is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X II

While I have just recently had the tires installed I have found them to be very good and better than the Continentals that came with the car. So far all aspects of the tire have been better that the original tires and I would not hesitate to purchase them again. I did have a minor vibration issue and found that the shop that installed the tires did not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Our Pacifica had Yokohama Geolandar A/Ts on it when we bought it, and we needed to go off-road to visit family, so that was all we ever knew in 8 years of ownership. That family has now moved back to the city, so I was looking for a standard tread this time.Based on stellar reviews here, I decided to try the Premier LTX. I noticed a difference even in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I have had several types of winter snow tires on my Audi's over the years. I shopped around, read many reviews and took a chance on these tires. My driving style is spirited like I posted so I take that into consideration for any tire I own. I took a chance and purchased the Pirelli Sottozero tires hoping they would have decent dry road manners and at least...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I average 25K miles per set of tires on my Audi. My first set were OE Goodyear and the second set were Michelin. Both sets were All Season. The Goodyear tires were okay but the tread wear was terrible. The Michelins were extremely noisy and with over 20K miles the traction in snow was awful. For the third set of tires, I decided to try Continental Extreme...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

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

Purchased a set of 4 of the Altimax RT43's, waited until I put some good mileage on them (10K) under various driving conditions to write this review. Had tires delivered to a tire shop I use close to work (Arrived the day after I ordered them) and the technician commented how well they balanced with the road force balancing procedure I requested. I am a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

The Michelin X-Ice xi3 is a huge step up in winter driving performance with MSW Wheels compared to the Michelin HydroEdge for Salt Lake City. We've driven them in deep snow, glare ice, and light snow. We've had a number of wet days and dry days. I've been very pleased with the performance in multiple driving conditions. My wife puts a lot of highway miles...  Read More
