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

Best Bang-for-Your-Buck Ultra High Performance All-Season Tire

Designed with the driver in mind, the ADVAN Sport A/S is Yokohama's newest and arguably best addition to the Ultra High Performance All-Season category.  In a class ripe with fantastic options, the Yokohama proves an able challenger with a very attractive price-point. Our internal testing has proven this tire to be a formidable competitor to category...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce LT

I live in Syracuse NY (just like Buffalo) Snow town USA. I purchased a set of 4 studded snow tires, after driving around on all season and I have to tell you the change was outstanding, no more white knuckle driving. These tires recently went through a snow storm, we are talking 6 to 8 drifts with a standard 3 to 4 mealy snow, the complete way to work. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have 4 of these dedicated snow tires on my '08 Subaru Tribeca whenmost of my contemporaries run All Season tires. I have a very short steep driveway and live in the southern Allegheny region of Central Pennsylvania. My driveway also has a northern exposure so it does not melt as quickly as someof my neighbors driveways do. i have great confidence in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG20

My second winter season for these tires. Zero problems. A front wheel drive car with real snow tires is by far the most economical car for winter. the price of a dedicated set of snow tires is around $600 dollars . Compared to the cost of collision repairs and possible injury, a no brainer.   Read More

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

This is an initial review of these tires, I will be doing a follow up review once I put more miles on them. They replaced the original 16 Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S that came equipped on my Accord sedan. I had them installed and took them on a short road trip the very next day which was perfect for breaking the tires in. I didn't get to test the handling as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Incredible tire does extremely well in dry, wet or snow. Provides a level of security knowing that your tire can handle extreme weather. I drive a custom Dodge Challenger and this tire is a perfect match for the performance. Plus Tire Rack's pricing on this tire and their servicing makes it a no brainer.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

Put these on my wife's car because Blizzaks were sold out and cheaper than Michelins. Nokians weren't available at the time, so I figured I was settling with this tire. I've been pretty surprised. These are on my wife's Volvo, which is FWD until it needs all wheels, with very nanny-ish traction and stability control. The car is completely stable with these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

great tire for the price haven't put many miles on them yet and have yet to see heavy snow but for the price you cannot beat the quality noise level is minimal even at highway speeds and everything in between. great traction levels in all conditions also this is a great tire and would recommend them to anyone not wanting to spend Michelin or bridgestone...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G053

I've read everyone's reviews, most of you should not share your thoughts. I have had these tires on all my GMC trucks, 2001 3/4 ton 2wd: 2004,2005,2006 1 ton 4 door dually: and 2006 1 tone SRW. Hard ride yes, its a 10 ply. These tires are awesome in wet conditions, no pulling, no hydroplaning, just great. In the snow awesome, pulling a 48' goose neck...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID S33D

Avid S33D was OE tire on our Prius. This tire has exceeded all expectations, especially longevity for an OE tire. Still have legal tread depth left and remain perfectly round after over 54,000 miles. Noise is average for a tire while not being uncomfortable, plus they have maintained good performance in rain at the limits of wear. A recent trip in Oct of...  Read More

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

I waited to drive on these for a few months before writing a review. I have loved these tires since getting them but after driving from Long Island to Burlington, VT in sleet slush and heavy snow, driving around Burlington in 6-12 inches of snow, I can confidently say THESE TIRES ROCK. I never felt slipping or sliding, even while passing in the snow covered...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very impressive. I've had these, Firestone Winterforce, and Blizzak WS-80's. The overriding plus is great slush and ice traction, coupled with a quiet highway road. It's hard to rate absolute performance vs. the WS-80's, since these are on the FWD Focus while my WS-80's are on the beastly (in the snow) AWD Subaru. But in braking and cornering, and general...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Excellent tires for the price. One of the best in class for passenger all season. They perform well in the snow for those who don't want to switch over to winter tires I highly recommend these tires. I don't think these tires will last up to 80,000 miles like the warranty says but I'm shooting for 65,000 miles before I have to replace them again. For Prius...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I live in the country with a very long driveway and travel on country roads. So far this tire has been very good in deep snow and on ice. I have not lost any traction in moderate snow depths, or on black ice conditions. I am very impressed with the traction this tire provides in a rear-wheel, high performance car. The price is great and so far no problems in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I spent way too long looking at winter tire options, and tireracks' website was by far the most useful.Regarding the Winter Maxx, I liked the reports of good tread wear and general all-round high marks for this tire, combined with the price. (There was a rebate going on.) I purchased the tires with new black steel wheels and had them mounted/balanced by...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Had BFG AT/KO tires before and although mostly satisfied with all aspects except snow I wanted to try a different tire. I wanted BFG TA KO2 tires, but my size is not available until November. I needed tires now, after comprehensive research which really ends up confusing as there are as many one stars as there are five for most tires. Frankly these tires...  Read More

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

I've had these on a 2008 550i for 50k and they have been great tires. I've never been a fan of Generals but a friend of mine had them on a 911 and raved about them. I figured for the price I'd try them out and I have been impressed. Great in the rain and even with very little tread wear left, they hold in a downpour(however I drive more cautiously knowing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

For having a RWD car as my daily driver and considering the Miata's small size, people said I was going to have a tough time travelling during the winter. My buddy reccomended these tires for winter since he had a set that worked really well. I have not had any issues driving in snow, sleet and freezing rain as they kept traction at all times. These tires...  Read More
