Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Excellent grip in wet, good traction is deep snow. Predictable handling and traction on ice. A very fun tire to drive on - in the wet, predictable and tons of grip. Hands down a better performance winter tire than the Dunlops that were on before.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

This is an incredible tire for the price. I caught them for $99 each from Tirerack and my local Firestone store mounted and balanced them at the Tirerack negotiated price, very reasonable. There is no noise at all, they ride very quietly, smoothly and responsively both around town and especially on the highway, even at 90 mph speeds. They have a very secure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Excellent Winter tires. If you live in the upper Midwest and above and own a Truck or SUV, these tires are a best buy if you need to drive in the snow. You can't beat the price and the snow traction. I was able to drive faster than conditions would otherwise allow without even a hint of loss of traction in the deep snow with these tires. For my wife's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Good tires,seem to handle very well, traction is good so far in dry and wet weather conditions have not tried it on snow and ice yet but will soon and the handling is superb   Read More

Q7 TDI owners,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Living in Minnesota winters have a tendency to be really tough. One day we will have -15 degree temps and it will be nothing but sheer ice, the next day it could be 20 degrees with wet heavy snow. So far the tires have been absolutely phenomenal! When I got them installed to replace the OEM all season Nexen tires I was expecting that the road noise would be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I purchased these tires for one winter (2015-2016) in the Denver metro area. Prior to this all my winter driving was in the California Sierras using all-season M+S tires. I was *very* happy we put on these winter tires for our time in Colorado because with them I had no worries about the road conditions and felt free to head to the mountains in anything but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Any RDX owners out there know that this is a noisy CUV/whatever-they-call-it. When I bought the car last October it had mismatched off-brand tires and anything but the smoothest road felt like a washboard. Although I normally take a more performance-oriented approach to researching tires, I figured this time around I'd look for something that smooths out the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

Pretty good dry grip, low noise levels, and comfortable ride. Light snow traction is great. I definitely felt slippage (no traction control), but very predictable in how it slides. Great all around tire at a very good price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Best value for the money. Very nice traction and handling, comfortable too, but noisy like snow tires. Will update more on tread life.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler AT/S

The ratings for this tire needs to be taken with a grain of salt. To be honest, they were great when new. Did very well in all conditions and for not being a winter rated tire, fairly well in the snow. With that being said, at about 20k the wet traction dropped of extremely fast. It rapidly becomes prone to hydroplaning and sliding. I found it to be the most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Great snow tires! I used this set for 3 winters here in Colorado and then left them on for the summer of 2016. After 32,000 miles they still had 5/32 tread depth. I just took them off to install a new set of DMV-2s. Great traction in all conditions. My wife and I took an ice driving lesson on one of the frozen lakes near us last winter and the instructors...  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

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 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 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
