Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

I purchased these tires in November 2013 when I was about to move from Baltimore to Syracuse for work. Syracuse averages 110 inches of snow annually and 2/3 winters here have proven that. I have now put on almost 60k miles on these tires in all conditions, snow, ice, dry, etc. and they are amazing. I think I have had to take my foot off the accelerator a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Typical of a Michelin tire, low noise with long life. I run these year round rather than swapping tires for the warmer months. Overall they hold well but you can feel a bit of looseness when cornering hard in wet weather. Currently have about 30k on them and they are at about 5-6/32 so just enough to mostly make it through another winter. These do have to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6

I live in the hills of western MA, where we get quite a bit of snow and ice. So I bought these Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6's in P205/70R16 mounted on plain steel 16 wheels for my Crosstrek for winter. They are just a tad taller and narrower than the stock P225/55R17 Yokohamas. No rubbing issues at all, and in the snow, my crosstrek is unstoppable. They are really...  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 Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D DSST RunOnFlat

Superb winter tire, simply fantastic. I'm using it on fairly powerful RWD car, tons of snow in the area every year. Never skipped or postponed a trip, zero issues finding grip no matter the conditions or the temperature out there. It's pricey, and it wears somewhat fast, for most people it's probably good for 2, maybe 3 winters.Quiter on dry and wet pavement...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I love to drive in the snow now. I couldn't wait until the first snow fall in Chicago. They don't plow and salt the side streets right away, so it was a great opportunity to test these tires out. These tires perform very well in snow 3-9 or more inches. I have a low profile front end which catches the snow and slows my momentum. But I had confidence that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

First impression: nothing special on dry/wet. Can not comment on stability - got this 2 sizes narrower one size smaller rim and one size taller side wall than standard... Light snow ... nothing special, better breaking than forward tractionHeavy snow: Holly...! yesterday we got several inches, but it was impressive when, without any shoveling, i got out from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

i use these tires on a front wheel drive kia, to go up to my property by crater lake in the cascades of Oregon, and they handle great on black ice, deep snow, packed snow, fluffy snow, from dry to wet to ice not a problem for these tires, then i have to go off road in frozen ruts in a 2 wheel drive kia never got stuck or slipped at any point, then i drove...  Read More

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

I am on my second set of these tires on my Land Cruiser and they are great tires. I put 70,000 on the first set but they were not called Defenders just LTX M/S. Tread life is amazing and they are tough tires and can't be destroyed. They are great in most conditions snow, sand and rain and if you get a nail in them they can be repaired because they are thick...  Read More

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

Great all around tire. There are certainly better tires for each season, but for snow and ice they are leaps and bounds better than the stock Dunlop Sport Maxx tires . If you live with snow on the ground for the majority of the winter, I'd go with a dedicated winter/snow tire, but if you only get 1-3 inches at a time then these do just fine.You will always...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I use these tires all year round. They are vastly superior to the original tires in nearly every regard and every road condition. Plus, the tires are great on snow and ice! They even last as long as the original all-season tires! And at the Tire Rack price, you can't beat them!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These tires are a vast improvement over the Continentals that came from the factory. They actually have grip in the snow and appear to be wearing much better. They seem as good in snow/ ice as any all season tire can be. Michelin tires aren't cheap, but tires are definitely a get what you pay for scenario.   Read More

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

This is by far the best set of tires I have owned for my truck. My dad had the same set on his truck, and he finally replaced them after 80,000 miles and the tires still had 5/32 left. I've put 12,000 miles on my set so far, and they all still have 12/32 left. Can't beat the traction, I've driven through three foot snow storms in these, and I've yet to get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Well i had these tires and so far i love them. They handle great and respond amazing. Unfortunately one of these tired of my set of 4 got a bubble on the side wall with only 2900 miles on them. It seems that they did a great job with the tread that the forgot about the sidewall. Luckily tirerack.com has the road hazard protection (side note: no i am not paid...  Read More

This is my third review and these tires are going strong very little tread wear The noise levels have improved a bit at higher speeds All traction measurements except snow have remained constant in other words excellent It has not snowed since my last review so I can't comment on that at this time Overall I am completely satisfied with these Michelin tires I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

These tires are hands down the best in all around performance that I have experienced with this vehicle. The ride is smooth, with superior cornering and steering response, and very little cabin noise. The car glides through tight corners with virtually no body roll, excellent acceleration on straight runs, and a great ride response to the pavement. Many...  Read More
