Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought the Continental WinterContact tires mounted on 17 Axis Modle Five gunmetal wheels from Tire Rack as seasonal replacements that I can swap in my garage. The wheels look better than my stock Audi S3 18 wheels. I mounted them three weeks ago and have already driven in three snow storms in Portland, Oregon and Washington. I'm shocked at how well they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was originally hesitant about a studies snow tire. I've used studded snow tires where I live in the Adirondacks for 30 years. They have gotten me to and from ski races in snow storms, to the ski area on snow days (I was a school teacher), and up and down a steep and sometimes icy driveway. We bought a small van this fall and I was looking for snow tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

My set of tires are dedicated winter tires mounted on OEM wheels. I currently have approx 1200 miles of driving in my daily commuter - '17 Volt. As a winter tire, the snow and ice traction is way above and beyond compared to the all season LRR tires that came with the vehicle. Just had the first snow storm (didn't drive through it though) recently but did...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I live in central PA and the winters can get alot of snow and ice. I've always bought all season tires but I never felt comfortable driving in the winter with them and I wanted to see what was available when it came to winter tires. I researched various brands of winter tires and based on the information I found I decided to purchase the Michelin X-ice Xi3....  Read More

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

First off, I am no tire expert. Second, I have only driven these tires for 800 miles. Third, I am not a professional driver, I have never tracked a car, and I have never had any track/racing lessons. I live in New York City and do most of my driving on the weekends getting out of the city to either eastern Long Island or upstate New York. I seldom drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I purchased these tires with wheels for winter driving in North East PA. I live in an area with lots of hills and I see plenty of people slipping and sliding and on rural roads where you don't have a lot of room before you are in the ditch. I really want to stop and turn and I believe winter tires are best for me where I live.I'm very happy with the Tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Since installing my winter tire and steel wheel package we have had 2 major snow events in Rochester. The combination of these tires and i-Active AWD is outstanding. The tires excel in every category beyond my expectations and I could not be more pleased. This even includes dry road ride, handling, and lack of road noise. I drove a Landcruiser for many years...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

Just returned from 800-mile round trip from Virginia to Rochester, mostly on highways. Michelin Latitude X-Ice 2 provided smooth, quiet ride at high speeds. Vehicle felt very connected to the road on winding highways. Tire Rack did a perfect balancing job on my winter wheel/tire package! Good feel of the road. Handling seems a bit rubbery, but these are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have driven on these tires for the last 3 months in (Oct-Dec) Wasilla/Anchorage, Alaska. We have had several Ice/Fog conditions and some snow with several cars that ran off the road. These tires have performed as well, if not better then the last 3 sets of Blizzaks that I have run on this car. I will say this- these tires are worthless until they warm up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I got these tires put on in advance of a snowstorm. The stock tires that came with the car were very mushy in the corners and they had very little rain / snow traction. Even with all wheel drive, I'd routinely lose traction. So, getting the Bridgestones put on was a treat, albeit expensive. >I came here to write this review because after driving in the snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

My Del Sol is basically a good weather car, lowered with low profile tires. It looks nice and gets great gas mileage, but it rides like a skateboard in good weather, and a boogie board in the wet, hydroplaning at the thought of water. Southern California was perfect for this car. Now in Wyoming, not so much.Knowing that the low profile tires were ok for good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I moved from Texas to New Jersey, bringing my rear wheel drive Infiniti coup with me. With the original Dunlop all season tires, driving in the winter was almost impossible. Since I drive this car only about 8000 miles a year, I chose to go with XIce Xi3, and keep the snow tires on the car year round. So far, it has been a great experience. The tires have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

The first pair of A/S tires I've had to purchase for any vehicle. Performance is great during the few dry day drive and while the roads are wet. Avoid every standing puddle at highway speeds exceeding 60mph, the tires have a tendency to pull hard to the side of the puddles and occasionally causing a brief ESP warning. The water is evacuated fairly fast, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Noticed I've already put 25,000 miles on these tires over the last year so I decided to write a review. Overall really enjoying them. To break it down in quick categories: Dry: as good as I can ask for, the car holds to whatever I put it through, and even more speed than I am comfortable with at times.Wet: Less traction than dry at slow speeds, easier to...  Read More

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

The price amd the ratings are what persuaded me to purchase these tires. There extremly grippy tires, extremly soft rubber that basically sounds like their peeling off the road. I have yet to drive in snow/ice conditions but as far as rain they never miss a beat. I will be purchasing another set for my new car here in about a month. I would recommend these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

I have these tires on three vehicles at the moment. A 2011 HHR, a 1997 K1500 4x4 and a 2004 Malibu. I luv these tires, I plow with the 4x4 and they work great, I run them only in the winter and change tires myself. I install at first snow and remove them after last snow. all tires are mounted on separate rims. am old time mechanic and know for a fact that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have had very good experience in the past with several Blizzak tires but the size I needed was not available for my 2016 Audi A6 FWD. So I bought the Michelin X-Ice. I was really looking forward to see how they worked. I feel they worked very good in light snow, slushy, and ice conditions. One day after a significant snowfall, maybe 7 inches I decided to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude X-Ice Xi2

These tires and new wheels were purchased for winter driving and so far we have had just a few days of light snow. The tires along with a bit wider wheel have increased the Jeep's handling stability in corners, with some increase in tire noise but not at all off putting, I like the change in handling so much I will leave them on year round over the OEMs.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

57,000 miles and these tires are getting toward the end of their life. They have been good, quiet and problem free. Pretty decent in wet weather, good in dry conditions and acceptable but nothing to brag about in snow even with an all wheel drive vehicle. I did slide into a ditch on level ground after tapping the brakes while driving slowly in very icy...  Read More
