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 Defender LTX M/S

I put 4 of these Michelins on my F-350when the previous Firestone Destination tires wore out after 40K miles. The primary use of this truck is pulling our 13,000 lb. toy hauler. I found these Michelins to be very stable and solid pulling the trailer and forgiving when the trailer is not attached. They are quiet and responsive and although they have not seen...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

There very great tires in dry and wet. I have driven on these tires in the snow because I was halfway to my work when it all came down at once with no warning. I was sliding all over the place and barley made it on a 35 degree hill that was already blanket of white snow my rear tires was just spinning all the way up even with traction control on. I even left...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I finally caved in to what I thought was hype about snow/winter tires and bought a set of Michelin X-Ice3 tires for my Sonic. After driving through a michigan winter on them... WOW! I was VERY impressed with how well these tires worked in the snow. A little FWD car that everyone thought I was crazy for driving it in the winter... short of being stuck in a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Owning this AWD vehicle and buying these tires proved to me how tires make all the difference when it comes to driving on snow or ice. The original continental high performance all weather tires (and a second set of another brand) while great for driving in the dry and wet, were awful in the snow or ice once I had put 10k miles on them (each set only lasted...  Read More

Worried About How Your New 2016 - 2017 Chevy Camaro Will Do in the Snow? Relax, We Got Your Back!

Having a fun sporty car used to mean that you also needed a second car to handle the winter months. This is no longer the case as modern traction control systems and ever improving winter tires mean the fun doesn't have to stop when the snow falls. For example, you have a 2016 Camaro and we have several tire and wheel options to get you through the...  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 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Bought a full set to replace my previous Hankook S1 Noble2's that were worn. The Hankooks when new had great grip and soft ride quality at first, but the tire took a turn for the worse after about 20k miles where it lost any advantage over an inferior tire. The GForces are a completely different tire, I'd start by comparing it to a more rigid summer...  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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is my first set of winter tires and also my first year living in a snow climate. I have had very little experience driving in the snow and ice prior to getting these tires. These tires are for my wife's car, so I didn't put the majority of the miles on the tires.What I can say is that I like to push the limits a bit when I am driving in conditions that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Purchased 4 of these in April '16. I drive as a courier up and down the east coast usually averaging 8K-10K miles a month so I go through some tires pretty quickly. This was the first set of tires I have bought for a Prius. I have always bought performance Goodyear tires in the past when I was buying for Crown Vic ex-police vehicles I used in my business. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I put a set of these tires on my Corvette immediately after delivery so I could drive it in cold weather as it had summer Michelins on it from the factory. I have driven in all weather conditions other than actual snow or ice covered roads. I have driven in temperatures as low as 15 degrees with no issues. Traction is excellent as is treadwear. I plan to buy...  Read More

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

I put this set on my 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 right when I purchased the vehicle, so I can't compare it to other tires on this car. But these tires are awesome! They grip in every scenario and perform great in every aspect. My Mazdaspeed 6 is AWD, but when lifting the e-brake up one click (disengages rear wheels), the tires still grab extremely well with 270 crank...  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I bought these tires last year from Tire Rack mounted on Sport Edition ST6 bright silver wheels. These wheel look very similar to the stock wheels, but have a bright finish to them that I find very attractive with the Floret Silver paint on my car. You can find Audi center caps on the Internet that will fit, too.I've never been a big fan of Michelin tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Switched over to these from the Primacy. Huge improvement in overall comfort and handling...runs smoother, quieter and handles corners confidently. Excellent wet and dry traction and did splendidly in light snow (1-3 inches) in conjunction with the vehicle stability and traction controls. Did just as well with the controls turned off however, required...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Anyone that drives a CR-V knows that it needs quiet tires to be a quiet vehicle. That said, I have tried three different brands on my CR-V over the years and the Michelin Defenders are by far the quietest of all of them. The Goodyear Assurance tires were awful. They rode horribly and had a constant moaning sound that drove me crazy. I then tried Yokohama...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just purchased these tires last week for use on my moderately modified 2002 Mazda Protege. These tires are incredibly quiet for a snow tire and they roll beautifully. In fact, they feel very similar to the Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires that I use on one of my other cars, a Toyota Prius. The X-ice Xi3 is the BEST overall snow tire in the heavy snow/ice...  Read More
