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

After coming off the stock Michelins that were factory installed, I wish I had made the change to these BF Goodrich tires sooner. They are a much better riding tire, minimally noisier, and light snow and rain traction is great. I've driven in heavy rain at 80 plus and an inch of snow that was a bit icy underneath and the tires kept traction at all times. I...  Read More

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

These tires are great!! They clawed their way up a very steep snow and ice covered hill starting half way up it and the truck was still in 2wd. Road noise is VERY quiet and tread wear is well above average. My only gripe is traction when accelerating in wet weather however, braking isn't a problem. I will definitely be buying these tires again!   Read More

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

Bought these tires to replace the original junk RSA's. The tires have worked flawlessly driving through deep snow to heavy rain. Tires are quiet and tread wear appears to be very good and they look great. Will not hesitate to buy these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

This set of Blizzard was installed 1 day before the only big snow storm in New York. After city snow removal, my van was buied in a 4 foot of packed snow/ice mixture. Took me 10 minutes to cleared my driver door entrance only, I was able to drove the van out of my spot. I only had 1 foot of spare room in front & behind my van. My neighbors were shocked to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I installed 205/55R16 on my 2009 MINI Cooper Clubman S which is slightly taller and wider than the stock 195/55R16. The tires have a slight bubble tire look to them because of this but I've become used to it and still get compliments on my car. There are absolutely no rubbing issues. The tires do not react as quickly to steering inputs as the OE Continental...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

This tire is fantastic in snow and on ice, but they have an insane amount of road noise on dry and wet pavement. Handling on dry pavement is typical for any other snow tire, but these truly excel when compared to other snow tires in snow and ice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I only have about 4Kmi on these four tires, but I am very happy with their performance, most notably in the snow we had this past winter (2016). They do seem to strike a good balance between wet traction, dry traction, rolling resistance, and road noise. I selected them from moderately priced tires primarily after reading other buyers' reviews. So far, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

Cont'd from March 18, 2016...My subjective opinion is they really don't cause you more money. As a matter of fact, except for the hassle of swapping wheels and tires (in my case), it is a concept of conservation of tread life, like having a second pair of shoes. You get to wear each pair (first and second pairs) for a longer time-wise. In fact, I also feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Ordered from Tire Rack and shipped to dealer for install,05 driver family car, removed Hankook Ventus with 20K miles. That was enough for me ,noisy and they liked to break loose in any amount of Chicago snow and would lift up in the rain, this on an AWD vehicle.I bought DWS 06 because of the TIRE RACK review, the Infiniti dealer service managers...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been nothing short of pleased with this tire. My last set were the run flat variety and were harsh riding and noisy and this tire is amazing. I get the same if not better mileage and also the tire is super in the rain and deep water (as much as a low profile FAT tire can be) and is very good in Northern Illinois/Chicagoland winter snows. Some of my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I tried a set of cheaper tires they lasted about a year and were junk so I payed a little more for the DWS's and they have been great, my car is lowered with coil overs and is pretty stiff the DWS tires smooth some of that stiffness out but still handle sharp, they work great in rain and really good in snow during acceleration and cornering, but they don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Short version: 95% of the performance of a summer tire, 95% of the quiet and comfort of a grand touring tire, 90% of the performance of a winter tire. The best all around tire I've found. I have these tires on all my cars, a Chevy Volt, Mercedes SL550, Mercedes E550, and had them on my Mercedes GLK350.In Colorado, conditions can go from dry and warm to snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I have 16K of mixed summer/winter driving on the Continental True Contacts. Winter handling is great in light, medium, and deep snow. Rarely does Traction Control or ABS activate. These are the best all-season winter handling tires I've ever driven on. My previous tires were Bridgestone RE970 AS Pole Position which were amazing in the summer but virtually...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I drive 90 miles a day to work and these tires have been great. They have held great in spirited exit ramps and provide good traction in rain and snow. The only time they loose traction in rain is higher RPM in first gear while crossing painted lines, they are quieter than the tires that came on my car but not as quiet as I had hoped. I found them on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Since my WRX comes with summer only tires I bought these mounted on rims from Tire Rack. I grew up in Wisconsin but when it snows, Tennessee mountain driving is far more challenging than WI. ever was. Put on 1100 miles last winter and 1900 so far this winter on mostly dry roads - tires have been even better this year due to break in last year. I live on top...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax RT

Bought these for my VW based on previous reviews, and they weren't wrong. An EXCELLENT tire. Put about 25,000 on them before selling the car and the tread life was great with a proper tire rotation schedule. Excellent in the snow (including a drive home with 8 of unplowed snow). Great in the rain. And very quiet. Can't say enough good about these so I'll...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I drive mostly city streets during the week, to and from work. Surface streets seem to be the last ones that get the snow removed, so the snow tires are a required tool for Front WD (can't get going at a stoplight otherwise). These tires are great for snow covered roads. I have also taken ski trips to deep snow, and the tires behave admirably with the deep...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I bought these Blizzaks early last winter because the stock BFG MT T/As were greasier than I liked on snow, and I'm glad I did. I just finished my first season with them. They are very good on dry pavement (which we have most of the time even in winter here), and outstanding in snow, ice, or slush. We live on a steep hill and I had no problems coming up in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

This is my second set of the Bridgestone Blizzack Tires. Absolutely trust and love these tires during snow storms in Colorado. Snow and Ice traction is absolutely amazing. Usually take these off during warm and dry days in Colorado and put them back on during the snow storms to prevent wearing them out too quick. This tire handles very well in snow and on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position

I have a 2015 Stage 3 Roush modified to 800hp, the stock Cooper tires had zero traction and were best suited for drifting. I have had the 970AS before on my Mustang and loved them so this time I went back to them and love them all over again. Great treadwear but most of all they stick. I always run 36 front and 34 rear to offset engine weight and these...  Read More
