Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX Winter

I live in southern Oregon. Not a lot of snow, maybe three storms of 5-8 inches a year. But we live on the northern exposure of a deeply forested hill that keeps snow for a week or two, often getting rained on. The last 300 feet of drive way is at least 12% grade. I found that these tires would often climb the road in 2wd, when even walking on the road is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

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

Bought these tires as a replacement for the OEM set, and what a difference a good set of tires makes. It feels like I'm driving a different car. I consider myself a very aggressive driver. On dry pavement, these tires are fantastic. They seem to be able to handle any corner at any speed, there's no tire chirp on hard acceleration, and braking is outstanding....  Read More

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

The General Altimax is excellent for both light and heavy snow, did not experience hydroplaning, and dry traction if above average. I have recommended this tire to many friends and all have experienced the same results. Great tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is my first experience running a dedicated snow tire read all the reviews plus affordability this tire performance was awesome .. I ran it on a Ford Focus front wheel drive and yes I bought 4 not just the front. All I can say is I will be a repeat customer for these tires👍   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Good for NJ Winter. I have an Acura TSX. Bought these tires on a suggestion from a friend and after reading all the positive reviews. Didn't want to invest in snows/rims but looking for something that would make me feel more secure when driving my 18 miles to work every day.These tires have made a huge difference when driving in the snow. I love them! I live...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Bought these tires for my daughter's first car based on the reviews and tire rack's ratings. with about 1000 miles so far, I can honestly say that this WAS NOT a mistake. GREAT tires so far. The wet and dry traction and handling is as advertised by the ratings. Had the tires installed at a local tire chain and was told by the manager that ho loves this tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

Love/hate relationship. Tire handles well, great balance of safety in dry and wet, in light snow and wintry situations. WORST noise I have ever experienced from any tire I've purchased in the past 35 years. My mechanics tell me they are not wearing evenly and I am fastidious about correct pressure and rotation. Perhaps I got a bad set, but I'm not coming...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

An standardized usage rating system would be useful for all season tires. At one end would be the Pilot Sport A/S 3. Excellent dry, wet and cornering traction with marginal snow and ice performance. On the other end would be the ExtremeContact DWS 06. A tire biased toward class leading snow and ice traction with average touring tire handling. Both are good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These tires were rated no:1 when I was looking for new tires for the X3 and since I already had them on a 03' 330i ZHP, I decided to get them. Having all wheel drive and some considerable clearance on the X3, theses tires perform better than expected. It was like driving on regular road when driving in 4-5in. of snow. They are quiet, has an incredible ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I bought these for $288 for 4 shipped to my door. These are great winter tires, the tires on my wife's 13 CRV were getting a little slick(less than 20k OEM tires, go figure). I am glad that I bought these tires as we have seen over 80 at my house this winter. My favorite thing about these winter tires is that I forget that they are winter tires. That is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M

I like almost everything about this tire. Traction, steering feel and handling are very good. Ride is very good, really soaks up surface roughness. Snow & ice performance is reasonable for an A/T but will not compare with a top snow tire. Off road traction is generally excellent. Unfortunately, with age tire has got noisy in 25-45mph range, but at highway...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Mazda's Mazda6

The Mazda6 is Mazda's mid-size car entry offered since 2002. The third-generation hit the streets for model year 2014 as a four-door sedan with options of either manual or automatic transmission. Without a six-cylinder engine option, some may suggest it loses appeal to some people. However, fuel economy numbers in the high 30s will grab your attention. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I love these tire but I have a cupping issue on the rears only. I have different sizes front and back so rotating is not an option. That being said the car is not drive a lot during the summer and almost never in the winter ( I have snow tires for winter driving). The alignment is almost perfect so I am not yet convinced about wear.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

I have worn out two sets of these tires in 5 years, my 300 has 200,000 miles on it. I ran them thru all seasons in Wyoming, with a rear wheel drive sedan. 115 miles + per day 5 days a week, rain, sun, and snow. Good mileage impressive handling and ride, survived countless road objects and potholes at 80mph. yes I swear by them. only in last year when the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH25

I am not quite sure what tires the previous people are riding on, but that is not my experience. I bought my 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo two years ago brand new. I have driven this car very hard and whatever the car could give I took it. With that being said, I have driven in heavy rain with no problems and well above the posted speed limits. I have taken...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture APT KL51

This is my second set. I was very pleased with its overall performance. Quiet and smooth on dry roads. It was ok in the snow and icey conditions. Better than my old Michelin ltx. My only complaint was after 5 years, one of the tire steel belt broke causing the tread to Mohawk. There was still plenty of tread left. Warranty was expired. I'm thinking it's an...  Read More

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

I got these towards the end of winter had 2-3 snow falls a couple deep ones (8-12) handled great grip off the start & responsive on snow/ice covered roads i am a aggressive driver. All road conditions these are great tires. Only down fall is they did not seem to help my gas mileage . But then again i drive from a rural area to the city (54mile RT) hills and...  Read More

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

I ditched the run flats and went with the Comp-2 A/S and a plug kit since the F30 doesn't have a spare. Couldn't be happier with the performance of these tires. Can't speak on tread life or snow performance, but the tires are great in dry/wet. Tons of grip and confidence in any road situation. The tires do hum a little on various surfaces, but it's a minor...  Read More
