Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I purchased my second set of continental DWS tires today at the Tire Rack. I live in South Bend Indiana about five minutes away from their location. My rear tires were worn down to where the S was gone. This morning I drove over to their office in a snowstorm and could barely make it there. With the new tires installed I drove home in the same conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Noticed I've already put 25,000 miles on these tires over the last year so I decided to write a review. Overall really enjoying them. To break it down in quick categories: Dry: as good as I can ask for, the car holds to whatever I put it through, and even more speed than I am comfortable with at times.Wet: Less traction than dry at slow speeds, easier to...  Read More

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

Sorry I couldn't give a full review since this is my secretary's Volvo. The C 30 had Hankooks summer tires that were worn when she bought the car. So no fair comparison could be made. After the tires were installed, I took it for an aggressive drive. I was very pleased with very minimal side wall flex. On the highway at 80mph it was very quiet and stable. It...  Read More

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

Great value for the money. Pros: -excellent ride quality -very quiet -good wet traction -outstanding snow traction Cons: -squirmy -almost zero feedback/road feel -slow to respondThese tires have very tall, small tread blocks with deep channels in between. The excellent wet traction, even in deep water, and unbelievably good snow grip (almost on par with...  Read More

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

The price amd the ratings are what persuaded me to purchase these tires. There extremly grippy tires, extremly soft rubber that basically sounds like their peeling off the road. I have yet to drive in snow/ice conditions but as far as rain they never miss a beat. I will be purchasing another set for my new car here in about a month. I would recommend these...  Read More

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

Only have roughly 700 miles on these tires, but since I just drove through a snow storm from Iowa City to Chicago, I figured I could say a thing or two. First and fore most, these tires are far superior to the tires Acura installed when I purchased this vehicle new. Original tires were Michelin Primacy HXM4. The original tires had long tire wear (almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

The tires were OEM with my Subaru OB. With proper care, as a few people have noted, I've gotten 43K on them, with a 60/40 highway to city driving mix. They are rated to 40k. They are not off-road, or snow tires. They have been for me, a good quality tire and it does what it claims. I'm buying another set to replace them next week. How you drive also, effects...  Read More

Q7 TDI owners,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler AT/S

The ratings for this tire needs to be taken with a grain of salt. To be honest, they were great when new. Did very well in all conditions and for not being a winter rated tire, fairly well in the snow. With that being said, at about 20k the wet traction dropped of extremely fast. It rapidly becomes prone to hydroplaning and sliding. I found it to be the most...  Read More

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

These tires replaced the original Bridgestone Potenza's (high performance, summer) that came with the G37. They are a noticeable step up in performance, primarily in the wet, compared to the Bridgestones. They are also quieter, though that may not be an accurate comparison as the Bridgestones were at the end of their life compared to the new Michelin's. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I bought these based on the good ratings and reviews in Tire Rack. I don't plan to drive them too much in snow (I have a set of winter -only tires for snow) but all other aspects have been top notch and I'm really happy with these tires. The steering feel and ride quality are excellent. They are quiet, too. I'm really happy with them and I would buy them...  Read More

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

Finally threw my second set of 4 Bridgestone Turanza EL4 run flat in the dumpster that were nor completely worn. I just could not take the noise and harsh ride any longer. My BMW 335xi is now fun to drive again. I have not had them long enough to have driven them in heavy rain or snow, but they are quiet and smooth.   Read More

Best Tires for 2014 Subaru Outback

Out on the road today, it’s hard to drive far without seeing an Outback. In fact, Subaru vehicles in general have become very popular amongst outdoor enthusiasts, as well as families. With the generous cargo capacity, all-time AWD and off-road performance, this vehicle is going to be in your garage for several years. But when it’s time to replace the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Been buying tires for 30+ years now and this is the best all season tire I've ever owned. The Primacy MXM4 isn't perfect nor even best in class in any single category, but is a standout because it excels in all (disclaimer: I don't live in the snow belt and haven't driven them in snow). The tire provides a superb balance between ride comfort and control......  Read More

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

On my 2015 GTI this tire has performed very well in dry and wet conditions. Steering responsiveness and handling are excellent. They are a little noisy and the ride is firm but this is a small price for the fun I have had with these on winding mountain roads. However, while I wasn't expecting snow tires I wanted at least acceptable traction in light snow....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Purchased these tires because I wanted a great all around tire for the Northwest where we get a lot of rain and a little snow. I wanted a quiet tire that performed well. I previously had the Goodyear Tripletreds and they provided amazing traction but were a pretty noisy. After reading reviews I went with the General Altimax rt43 which was made in America for...  Read More

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

These tires replace the OEM Continentals at 50K miles, which was probably a few thousand past needing replaced. These tires have been rotated regularly about every 5K miles with oil changes, only rebalanced once recently. They do great in the snow, I work second shift so I tend to be driving home in some adverse conditions during the winter, with the state...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA71

I just purchased this tire after the terrible experience of ContiProContact. The Contis were extremely noisy and a very uncomfortable ride. I literally hated driving. I was torn between the Conti Extreme Contacts, General Altimax and the Kumhos. My wife's Lexus has the ContiPureContacts and they are really a good tire. Very quiet and smooth. So I was torn on...  Read More
