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

Excellent tires. Traction is always there, even taking tight curves at 60+mph. Hydroplaning happens a bit, but it took me pushing 90 in a downpour to get there. Very reliable, even in the snow. They aren't made for snowy conditions, but I had no problem driving through the smokies with snow/slush on the pavement and more on the way. Nothing is quite like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Got 63,000 miles from these tires just had a new set installed yesterday!! Had 4/32 left on old tires but live in a wet at a and was getting a lot of hydroplane at freeway speeds. In a dryer area a could have easily got 70,000 miles on these. Rotated ever 5,000 miles and had alignment done once every year usually after pot hole season. We also get a lot of...  Read More

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

I looked long and hard about 3-4 years ago for a new set of shoes for my 2010 Infinite M35X, and thought these looked like the best bang for the buck...and I have not been disappointed. They only allowed me to rate myself as spirited, but it was a lot closer to psychotic with delusions of grandeur that he's speed racer in his old man car before I started...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Call me crazy, however, these are one of the best performing tires I have ever owned. I run the Michelin pilot sports on both my 2008 VW Jetta Wolfsburg 2.0T FSI, DSG w/K04 S3 Turbocharger upgrade, and supercharged 1994 Classic NA Mazda Miata as summer tires and these on the Jetta for the winter. The Michelin Pilot Super Sports are at the top of their...  Read More

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

Noisiest tire ever!! Louder than the shagged Bridgestone Blizzak's they replaced. I bought these tires because they were inexpensive and have an aggressive tread as a compromise to swapping out dedicated snows every year so I did not expect them to be quiet, but holy cow....my normally quiet sedan now sounds like a turbo prop airplane taxiing down the...  Read More

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

I have put two sets of these Michelin's on our car and I am about to put on a third. I got 80,000 miles out of the first set, 70,000 out of the second and only replaced because I will be potentially be driving them in snow. My only criticism of the tires is that I have not found the traction to be great in snow and mud the few times I have my Pilot in those...  Read More

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

I now know how the other half live! What an incredible difference. I bought these to replace the OEM equipped Goodyear Eagles, which were acceptable in most driving conditions, but brutal in winter. I started to wonder if it was the car. Nope, definitely the tires! It is not surprising to roll off the driveway and onto a snow covered road in our development...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I love these tires! I replaced the completely adequate Michelin Primacy mxm4 tires which I put nearly 60000 miles on with these Premier AS tires last fall. I plan on using my 06 AWD Magnum RT as primarily a winter car since recently purchasing a 15 Challenger RT. I believe that the improved wet and snow traction is well worth the premium price point. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S

Hi to all. these tires came with my suzuki kizashi awd and folks i drive in kansas city mo under snow and ice and i could not have ask for a better tire, in short these are all season all around excellent tires, now if you drive a car with low profile tire these tire are a bit noisy mines are low profile and noisy, if you drive a front wheel drive in ice and...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 the Best All-Season or All-Terrain Tire for Snow Traction?

If you've experienced driving through a tough winter season on a top-tier winter tire like the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-2, you'd agree that a set of dedicated winter tires offer the best traction in snow and on ice. If you are one who doesn't agree with this statement, take a look at "Do Winter/Snow Tires Really Make a Difference?" Winter tires should be...  Read More

Tire Size 265 70R17 Versus 285 70R17: Can I Use a Larger Size?

Before asking the question, "Can I use a larger tire size?", you should first ask yourself "Should I use a larger tire size?" Why is this important? While going to a larger size may give you that "big tire" look, changing your vehicle's tire size affects more than just cosmetics. Altering your vehicle's tire size can affect speedometer and odometer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Bought these tires with a Tire Rack wheel package. The stock WRX tires are absolutely pitiful from a trace of snow upward. So, like Murphy's Law, as soon as I got the tires mounted--the snow stopped. It was regularly snowing prior to Xmas but soon therafter it simply died out. BUT, we did have a 10 snowfall and decided to try out the traction on these....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

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

How could I possibly lose with a speed-rated all-season tire? Not. Looking for a less expensive replacement for BFG touring tires, I found these at Tire Rack. Reviews were good and price was perfect. I went for it. Tires look great with a nice sidewall profile and design. Asymmetrical tread design looks advanced but does it work? You betcha it does.They tend...  Read More

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

The tires are good for all seasons. Traction is good, not great. The OEM summer tires (Goodyear Eagle F1s) on my car had superior traction -- especially while cornering. You need to lower your speed 5-10 mph in corners with these tires. The ride is slightly less stiff than the Eagle F1s (which are rather stiff tires). Over the F1s I noticed a slightly less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Tire needs to be replaced it did not last the 50000 miles claimed. Once it go down on tread the traction in snow went way down.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Overall, I'm quite happy with this tire. It was a huge improvement in wet and winter conditions over my stock tires that came on my Golf. I bought them right before going on a road trip to Rochester, NY, where I experienced blizzard conditions nearly every single day I was there. I was amazed at how well they performed in the snow! They got pretty good...  Read More

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

I purchased a set of these for my eleven year old Audi. Over the years I've run a variety of tires from max performance summer to all season ultra high performance, and comfort was usually last on my list. As I've matured with the car, comfort has been a higher priority than flat out performance. When refreshing the car recently I chose these tires matted to...  Read More

Introducing the General Grabber X3

For those that don't know, I have been running the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires for the last two years. I have only about 35,000 miles on them, and they have approximately 50% tread depth remaining, but they were 315/70R17 (about 35" by 12.5") and I wanted to put larger tires on my Jeep. The General Grabber X3 (with red letters) was my choice in...  Read More

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

I have had these tires on another truck and loved them. I had the LTX M/S2's, which are the same tires. I have a 2wd with a limited slip differential and have never been stuck yet. I pull a 8k lb boat and have never been worried at the boat ramp. Even at low tide, these tires never slip. I have never been in snow with these tires, so I can't give an accurate...  Read More
