Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

My original street tires were worn out in the mountains of NorCal. They served me well, but they were street tires, and on a dry summer day made for some spirited tight corners on the sierra nevada roads. The problem is, I needed something to get me to the mountains during winter,and the stock tires didn't do it for me. Fast forward and I move to Michigan....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so for this tire.Just replaced my Ecsta Platinums with another set after 61K miles! I've rarely gotten more than 40K out of a set of tires before they started having problems - and never remember over 50K. 95% highway miles - and while I'm not aggressive with the tires, I'm no Sunday driver either. Rotated...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Bought these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone tires on my '13 Highlander after 50K of city/hwy combined driving. OE Bridgestone tires were okay, but I was looking for a better all season tire for all types of driving here in eastern PA.Reviewed all of the TR testing and reviews and decided to go with these Michelins. After 7,500 miles of fall, winter, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Installed on a 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5i AWD. In upstate NY/ Northern NY we have true all season weather, and I think these tires handle it very well, especially for the price! Had no balancing issues after the first mount and balance. The only thing I have slightly noticed is when it's cold outside (sub-freezing to freezing temps) the tire gets a slight flat...  Read More

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

VERY PLEASED SO FAR! THEY WERE JUST PUT ON MY CAR 4 WEEKS AGO. NO SNOW HERE YET. BUT OVERALL GOOD RIDE. THANKS   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

With tires, you pay for what you get; and these tires are DEFINITELY worth paying for. I live up in the foothills of Vermont, and drive everything from deep mud and rocks up to our hunting camp, to up and down the highway for work. I couldn't be happier with a set of tires being able to handle it all. I was skeptical of how the bigger tread would handle the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

After a lot of thought and looking at reviews I decided to replace the tires I had on my Audi it came with Goodyear's. The price for those tires was like 198.00. I looked around for a good high performance summer tire and these BF Goodrich tires looked like they fit the bill. The only thing that worried me was they said that under 50 mph there was road noise...  Read More

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

Having had G-Force T/A KDW P255 as my summer tire for 9 years, I was used to the tire rumble, hydroplaning in heavy rain over 50MPH, absolute terror driving in snow or ice, and the very sporty look of the flame tread. The only thing I miss is the very sporty look of the tread. The pronounced all season tread on the sidewalls wasn't expected, and takes some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Tire size is 215/45-17, the OEM spec'd size. The feedback here is after 52k+ miles on the tires. I've had the tires since Jan-2016 and average 3400 miles/month or 40.8k miles/annum. The review is not as comprehensive as I would like because we had a light snow the past winter. To reflect this, I had to leave the heavy snow and ice ratings as N/A.The feedback...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

OE equipment, almost 94k miles on the original tires... what more can I say? In Oklahoma we have all kinds of driving conditions, ice, rain, snow, extreme heat. 4 years on the tires and zero complaints. Really good traction in ice/snow/rain. Dry roads the tires seem a little hard (can spin easier) Can slide a little if you take a corner too fast. BUT, they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I have been very happy with these tires and at 56,000 miles they have between 3/32 - 5/32 left. I am replacing them today with Michelin Premier LTX, but would happily have stayed with the Primacy MXV4 were it not for reading even better reviews of the Premier LTX in snow and due to Costco stocking them (and a slight price diff).   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I bought my car lightly used with 32000 kilometers on it which translates to roughly 20,000 miles. When I got it it had the Pirelli P6 Four Seasons tires which, until I got these installed, I thought were pretty good. With the P6 4S I found turn-in and general cornering stability a little sloppy which I attributed to not having the sports suspension on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Travel from Washington to Wisconsin requires good winter tires. I have been very pleased with the Scorpions in any/all conditions encountered. 90% of the time it's dry, so I want to be able to drive like summer tires and also have them quiet. These do both, yet when the wind howls with blowing snow across the Dakotas, they stick and handle very well in that...  Read More

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

I got these for my 2015 Tahoe, and they made this truck what it is - luxury SUV that can go anywhere. These tires are phenomenal. Please don't listen to people bashing these tires in winter conditions. People bashing these tires for poor snow performance should learn : a. These are not winter tires. b. how to drive in winter conditions.Tires are performing...  Read More

What Tires Are on a Lexus 2017 RX350?

In the luxury midsize SUV market, the Lexus RX350 ranks as one of the best. It’s easy to see why thanks to a great looking interior, spacious room for the driver and passengers, good power and impressive standard features. With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, the RX350’s tires need to be ready to handle that power and translate it into comfort and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I bought these tires at the end of the Winter in April of 2016. We ended up having a snowstorm which put about 3 inches of snow on the roads and I had just switched from my Michelin X-ice Xi3's to these tires. I was really impressed with how well they handled the snow. Granted, they were brand new, and they were still no match for my Xi3's, but they did...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

THESE TIRES ARE USED IN PARK CITY UT IN A SUBDIVISION UP ON A MTN SIDE. OUR ROADS ARE SO STEEP AND SNOWY THAT THE COUNTY SENDS AROUND A FRONT END LOADER WITH CHAINS ON ALL FOUR WHEELS BEFORE THE SNOW PLOW COMES BY! TEN INCHES OF WET, SLICK SNOW, UNPLOWED AND I HAD NO TROUBLE MOVING, STOPPING OR STEERING AT ALL. THE FEDEX DELIVERY SUV WAS STUCK, AS WELL AS...  Read More
