Introducing Bridgestone's Blizzak DM-V2: The Tire to Beat for Winter 2015?

For the past several years the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 has been our highest consumer rated tire among a strong field of competitors in the Studless Ice & Snow (Light Truck) market. While it seems illogical to discontinue such a well liked product, history has proved that the Blizzak line of tires seem to evolve and rarely, if ever, take a step back....  Read More

Best Tires for the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 and CX-5 are Mazda's mid-sized and full-sized crossover SUVs for the North American market. Despite their roomy interiors, these stylish crossovers have surprisingly nimble handling which makes them fun to drive. When the time comes to choose replacement all-season tires, consider the top tires from the Grand Touring All-Season and Crossover/SU...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I own a 2013 Mustang V-6 I opted to get a larger set of tires as to get better traction in the snow and rain in Philadelphia, Pa. I was hesitant to get these tires as I'm a very aggressive driver and pull very sharp turns. I relied on the Pirelli P Zero Nero Tires which were great but the ride was harsh in the many potholes in Philadelphia. I drive 37600...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Didn't rate any 10s - but the tires are way better than the OEM that came on the car from the factory in snow.   Read More

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

I have only had these tires a few days, but so far I LOVE them!! I previously had Yokohama Avid tires on my car, and these seem to be MUCH better. Although I cant judge on winter driving or traction, since it is June, I can say that these tires are better in every way that any tire I had previously on my car. They are very comfortable tires, are extremely...  Read More

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

I bought these All Seasons( with low expectations ) to replace my fast wearing yet sticky Summer Pirelli P Zeros. When new the Pilots are squishy while cornering even moderately aggressive. This lessens and eventually goes away around 500 miles or so.I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and these tires got me to and from work in the snow all winter. My S4 didn't...  Read More

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

These tires are an excellent combination in dry or wet weather. Haven't driven in snow yet. They are quiet, very comfortable and still have excellent road feel and steering responsiveness. I really enjoy driving my car now, and they were reasonably priced.Bought them mounted on Sport Tuning wheels right from Tire rack. My car looks and rides better than I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

When I went looking for a set of tires, my first-ever snowy winter was fast approaching me. I had spent my entire life up until that point living in the hot deserts of southern California, but was attending college in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I had no idea how to drive in snow, and I couldn't have two sets of tires - one summer and one winter - because I...  Read More

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

These tires offer a good balance between performance & economy. I use snow tires for winter driving, so these will be used for summer driving. I drive nearly 20k miles/year, 8-9k miles/summer. I need tires that will last at least 4 summers, but I like to drive and want good performance too. These Goodyears fit the bill. Dry handling is very good, though not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I bought these shortly after buying my jeep used back in 2010. Since then i've gone offroading several times and these tires do great considering how quiet they are on-road. Where these tires fall short is snow traction and wear. For some reason the outer part of the tread is made almost half the depth of the inner part so after 20k miles my tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

This tire came as a winter wheel/tire pkg i purchased from TireRack. We in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have recently experience a strange start to the winter. with temperatures ranging from +15c to -25c, rain, snow, hail. These tires have performed great. Being a high powered RWD car, i haven't had any issues getting moving safely through light and deep snow....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 2050

I have these on my Mazdaspeed3. Originally when I purchased the car I had Kuhmo Ecsta SPT summer tires, which were not so good. When I was looking to buy a new set of tires, I had the option to buy a whole new set of 2013 Speed3 rims and OE Dunlop tires so I jumped at the opportunity.These are vastly superior to the Kuhmo's. I don't know why there are so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

This was the OE tire that came on the truck. The ride is smooth and quiet for a 4X4 truck. Wet traction is very good and snow traction is good for a tire that is only rated for light snow. I will admit the the tread life is poor, but the truck can corner at higher speeds than my old 2002 F-150. I noticed the front tires had severe feathering on the outer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Last winter I was using Bridgestone Insignia 200 all-season tires. They were OK with 150# ballast in the trunk but ice was still very difficult to manage.I decided to try the Blazzak this season since the all-seasons were about half worn down. On snow pack roads these tires feel as if I am on a dirt road in summer! On ice, well that's ice but you do have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature II (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I doubted the reviews,but I took a chance based on price. They haven't disappointed me though. I drive mostly on high speed toll roads and rural highways and these have a good ride that's relatively quiet. I've had no issues in rain to this point and I'd really have to stretch it to find a real complaint. I haven't had them in snow, but I'll put the snows on...  Read More

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

I live on Vancouver Island and we get relatively little snow. However, we get a lot of rain. I just switched from the older Pilot Sports and my immediate impression was very good. The handling was rock solid and traction was what I have come to expect from Michelins. Road noise is significantly quieter than my previous tires, something my wife commented on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

All of my ratings are for driving the Odyssey moderately, not like a sports car. How else do you drive a minivan full of people ? My daily driver is an Acura RSX Type S, the minivan for my wife and I drive occasionally. The important qualities for a minivan are tread wear, ride comfort, wet traction in the rain, and steering response. It was great for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am ordering a new set of 4 X Ice for my Audi A4 even though I could still get more out of my previous X ices which are entering their third winter season, but when it comes to snow and ice driving I have learned it's best not to extract the last ounce out of a tread. I love these tires! They handle nearly as well as my summer Extreme Contact Continentals,...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to replace the stock Dunlop sp2050 summer tires on my Mazdaspeed3. The michelins not only have higher overall grip but ride more smoothly and quietly. They still look phenomenal after 10k miles, with the lowest tire still measuring over 8/32nds with lots of spirited driving. I turn off traction control and spin them at least weekly.I...  Read More

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

The Michelin Pilot AS3 is simply amazing in the wet and dry (cold or hot weather). I bought this in the summer and so far I've accumulated roughly 5000 miles on these. The steering feel is very responsive, you always know what the tires are doing, I could have sworn this feels very much like a high performance summer tire. In return, you could also feel some...  Read More
