Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

Bought the Kuhmos to replace worn Bridgestones. Much quieter, although they are still new-ish. That said, I am very pleased with the tires, particularly when you factor in the cost. Have not driven in snow, but in wet/storm conditions I have not experienced any hydroplaning or loss of traction. Not particularly sporty, but neither is a CR-V!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Fantastic all weather tires for my Summer (May to Oct) driving needs. Run from late Oct. to Late April and full set of Winter Ice type Snow Tires. Far better then original Audi Continental Factory all season tires. Will look at for other vehicles fitment when needed. Tire Rack service and delivery was excellent.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Have had two sets of Pilot Super Sports on my E90 and have been very pleased. The dry grip is tremendous, the wet grip is very good, and they even perform reasonably well when it gets cold (but no snow). I have a dedicated set of winter tires so these are on the car from April to November. I've gotten three solid summers out of them and they still have a...  Read More

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

This is an excellent tire for the money. I got the 285/35-20 and traction is great in wet or dry conditions. TheyI have not seen snow or ice yet, but noise levels are very reasonable. I was concerned that going with a much larger wheel and tire than the stock 235/50-18 there would be some tram lining. But these are as good or better than the stock set up. At...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This review is about the DWS 06 but I've also had the earlier DWS on all 3 family cars. I loved the DWS but the DWS 06 does seem to be a worthy upgrade. Live in Massachusetts and drive to the mountains in northern NY (Adirondacks) quite a lot too. Absolutely no problem getting around in wet/dry/mild snow in MA - but I do swap on real snows for the mountains...  Read More

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

We didn't realize the car had 18 wheels at purchase. Not a problem, except we usually run Michelin's, which are pretty expensive in this size. So we checked Tire Rack ratings and found these tires...and we have been pleasantly surprised. The tires 'sing' at highway speed which is a little noticeable, but really not an issue at all. They are a lot quieter...  Read More

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

I bought these tires just before a trip from Alabama to California and back again, and I don't think I could have made a better choice. Especially with the huge storms that hit the country this winter. These were to replace the BFGoodrich's that came on the truck. I'd like to think that I am a pretty good driver in the snow, but these tires inspire an almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2 RunOnFlat

These were the OEM tires on my wife's 2015 BMW X3 2.8d. Not very happy with them. They are average at best. They are ok in the dry and rain. Terrible in anything with snow or ice. I would not buy another set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

4 years and almost 45k miles on my Speed3 and they'll do anything I ask of them except ice and snow. I don't care about that. Absolutely awesome in the Seattle rain and deep puddles. I've never felt out of control in any hard rain situation. Great 3 season tire. Would buy this series again soon. I still have 1/4 of tread left. They are getting a little noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

These tires were much better than the OEM Kumhos (Solus I believe) on my 2011 Kia Sorento SX. I actually had some confidence driving in light/deep snow with the Michelins. They weren't as quiet (or comfortable) as I thought they would be, but they were still miles better than those Kumhos.I've got almost 45,000 miles on them with just a couple flats...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

We live outside of Boston's 95 circle so we get our share of icy, snowy untreated roads. After taking out a fence, mailbox & fender, my sister in law traded the protégé in for an AWD CR-V. Wife liked it so much she got one exactly like it, & I immediately put DM-V1s on the wife's (my) investment. Sister in law waited awhile till she almost kissed the rear of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I bought two sets of these tires to use in Cleveland, Ohio in all types of weather conditions. They perform better than my old Michelin's in snow and rain. For the price they cannot be beat.   Read More

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

After Driving with these for 2 years I love this tire they are the smoothest most responsive all-seasons I've ever owned. My favorite part about them is the way they take the highway, when I switch from my winter set, it does not feel like the same vehicle. Let me say however, they need to get removed when the snow falls. Living in Massachusetts, these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Just finished my third Colorado winter on these tires. Have put on 19,000 miles and there is still 8/32 of tread left! I am going to leave them on this summer and then install a new set of DMV-2s this winter. Couldn't be more happier with these tires in the snow up here in the mountains. We don't get much ice....mainly packed snow roads....so, I can't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I finally got to test these in the winter and they passed the test. I'm in Western Pennsylvania and though the winter of 15-16 was milder than normal, I still had enough snow and occasional ice on which to test the tires. Extremely comfortable ride on dry, and I've noticed an appreciable savings in gasoline along with filling them with Nitrogen. Great wear,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Only had them on the truck a short while but within 3-4 days of having them installed, had to drive in a nasty late spring snow. They performed sooooo much better even in 2WD then the previous tires, particularly since it doesn't have a locking differential that it seemed to be a totally different truck. They did seem a little harsher riding but that seems...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These came OEM on our Range Rover. We now have 30k miles on them. I say buy them.Pros: Long wearing; handled snowmagedon in Atlanta a few years ago with aplomb. After the entire city was experiencing pandemonium these tires seemed nearly heroic in the light snow and VERY icy conditions. I drove up my steep paved driveway that was covered in snow and ice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the runflat tires on my car with these. Never looked back. It's quite good improvement compared to the old version and that one was already very good. This one has great traction in all sorts of conditions dry, wet, snow, ice. Cornering stability is a bit weak, but not sure if that's due to my heavy car or the tire. It's noisy on concrete, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I love this tire. I have gone through 5 sets of them (that I can remember) on various cars over the years. Hyrdoplaning resistance and traction in inclement weather is amazing, and dry grip is very good. In comparison to Bridgestone Potenza RE 960 AS tires, I feel that these Continentals have slightly less grip in dry conditions but are much better in rain...  Read More
