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

I bought these All Seasons( with low expectations ) to replace my fast wearing yet sticky Summer Pirelli P Zeros. When new the Pilots are squishy while cornering even moderately aggressive. This lessens and eventually goes away around 500 miles or so.I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and these tires got me to and from work in the snow all winter. My S4 didn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

First time buying winter tires and i couldnt be more happier. I put my car through the worst snow ever and never got stuck. The grip on these tires are amazing. Ice traction is ok, have to be more carefull but they are pretty loud on the highway. Overall great price for winter set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

I bought these shortly after buying my jeep used back in 2010. Since then i've gone offroading several times and these tires do great considering how quiet they are on-road. Where these tires fall short is snow traction and wear. For some reason the outer part of the tread is made almost half the depth of the inner part so after 20k miles my tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Radial T/A

Fine on dry roads, but in my Manual 3.0L V6 Ranger I could break them loose everytime unless i took off very slowly. In rain and uphill almost impossible not to spin the tires. I can only imagine how they would do in a performance vehicle.Forget about these as an all season, snow traction was awful in anything but a light dusting. They worked for doing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60

I have this tire for only 600 miles. However, I live in Colorado, so we get different weather now in November. When I installed this tire temperature was in 60's. There is no doubt this tire is made for strictly winter conditions. It is soft on dry, steering response is much worse then with all-season tires, not to mention Michelin PSS I put in garage until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

This tire came as a winter wheel/tire pkg i purchased from TireRack. We in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have recently experience a strange start to the winter. with temperatures ranging from +15c to -25c, rain, snow, hail. These tires have performed great. Being a high powered RWD car, i haven't had any issues getting moving safely through light and deep snow....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 2050

I have these on my Mazdaspeed3. Originally when I purchased the car I had Kuhmo Ecsta SPT summer tires, which were not so good. When I was looking to buy a new set of tires, I had the option to buy a whole new set of 2013 Speed3 rims and OE Dunlop tires so I jumped at the opportunity.These are vastly superior to the Kuhmo's. I don't know why there are so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

The OEM tires had a severe hydroplane and wet traction problem so I looked for a wedge design similar to some Pirelli tires I used in Ireland. Found these and my fear of driving in wet weather disappeared. Agree that they are noisy but safety trumps noise any day. They proved to provide excellent traction in our upstate New York winters. Just purchased...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

This was the OE tire that came on the truck. The ride is smooth and quiet for a 4X4 truck. Wet traction is very good and snow traction is good for a tire that is only rated for light snow. I will admit the the tread life is poor, but the truck can corner at higher speeds than my old 2002 F-150. I noticed the front tires had severe feathering on the outer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Duravis M700

I have a 2009 Silverado 2500 HD VORTEC. I have been very satisfied with these tires and was going to replace them with the same tire. After checking on Tire Rack, I am surprised there is so much negative info about the tire. I do some off road driving with my pickup and have only gotten stuck once - to me the ultimate test. I suspect any vehicle might have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Last winter I was using Bridgestone Insignia 200 all-season tires. They were OK with 150# ballast in the trunk but ice was still very difficult to manage.I decided to try the Blazzak this season since the all-seasons were about half worn down. On snow pack roads these tires feel as if I am on a dirt road in summer! On ice, well that's ice but you do have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I've been running these on most of my cars for the last four or five years. Snow traction is as good as anything I've seen. Ice traction is a tiny bit less than the pure ice tires, but close enough. They seem to wear well and handle quite decently. They are a bit noisy. This is a clone of the Gislaved Nordfrost 5.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I live in mile hi steep mountain terrain. We had a heavy 18 snowfall with only minimal snow plowing done before I had to drive 'down the hill'. Decided this would be a great test to see how my new Altimax Arctic snow tires would preform so launched out without putting tire cables on, which I was sure I would need. Trees & power lines down everywhere making...  Read More

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

I live on Vancouver Island and we get relatively little snow. However, we get a lot of rain. I just switched from the older Pilot Sports and my immediate impression was very good. The handling was rock solid and traction was what I have come to expect from Michelins. Road noise is significantly quieter than my previous tires, something my wife commented on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I put these tires on in June and enjoyed driving interstate miles on them in the Rocky Mountains for weekend expeditions. Great traction in rain, resistant to hydroplaning in large puddles on the interstate. I drive up to ski every weekend and these tires have been great in the snow. Deep snow is no problem for these tires, they are no snow tire or studded...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

All of my ratings are for driving the Odyssey moderately, not like a sports car. How else do you drive a minivan full of people ? My daily driver is an Acura RSX Type S, the minivan for my wife and I drive occasionally. The important qualities for a minivan are tread wear, ride comfort, wet traction in the rain, and steering response. It was great for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have never written a review on tires before but felt that these certainly deserve it! My Goodyear RS-A's were down to the wear bars at 30k miles, I wanted something that would give me slightly better ride and since I live in the Midwest some traction in snow. I loved the performance of the RS-A's but truth be told the ride of the Infiniti leaves a little...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Two New England winter storms thus far on these tires. No issues, I've made it to work and home (+) to do usual errands without any loss of traction or lack of confidence with grip. The true confidence (to me) is that I can usually get when I want to go, but with snow and ice on the road having the confidence with STOPPING is the thing. I travel mostly...  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to replace the stock Dunlop sp2050 summer tires on my Mazdaspeed3. The michelins not only have higher overall grip but ride more smoothly and quietly. They still look phenomenal after 10k miles, with the lowest tire still measuring over 8/32nds with lots of spirited driving. I turn off traction control and spin them at least weekly.I...  Read More

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

The Michelin Pilot AS3 is simply amazing in the wet and dry (cold or hot weather). I bought this in the summer and so far I've accumulated roughly 5000 miles on these. The steering feel is very responsive, you always know what the tires are doing, I could have sworn this feels very much like a high performance summer tire. In return, you could also feel some...  Read More
