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

This is a follow up review from my original I wrote after only 500 miles. Now with 6500 miles and having driven in snow, on ice, in rain, on nasty city streets (I live in Chicago), on Interstate, State, and county highways I can say that purchasing these tires was the best decision I have made. I live in Chicago but cover a sales territory from Detroit, MI...  Read More

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

These tires are awesome. 95% of the time I'm on road, and they handle excellently. For such a large sidewall, at road pressure they still handle great (especially on a Jeep). Dry traction is superb, wet traction is very good, but is the only thing I think could improve a little. Even in snow and ice they are responsive and handle very well. I only have about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Haven't driven in any snow yet, but dry and wet traction are awesome with this tire. Wet traction it feels like I'm driving on dry pavement still. I can't comment on wear yet either as these tires are pretty new. They are also much quieter than my old tires (Dunlop SP Sport Signature) and the ride is very comfortable. Overall these tires are pretty awesome....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

My northern Virginia commute is 150 miles round trip per day. All but about 5 miles of that is highway.This is a great tire. This Conti was bought primarily for wet road traction, and it has performed magnificently under those conditions. There has never been a time when grip in the rain was a concern. These tires have run on roads with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor

Second set of Wrangler S-A tires on a Tacoma. 1st set (P265/70/R16) on '03 Tacoma DblCab 4x4 OffRoad lasted 90,000 miles (six years). No leaks/flats/problems or complaints. When replaced, still had 1/8 inch tread left but started to show dry rot/UV cracks, were hard as rock). Replaced them with Firestone Destination A/T. Firestones were quiet, soft-riding,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I will review again after winter but wanted to submit my initial impressions. Wow! If you have the F250 or F350 diesel you need this tire. It blows the OEM tire out of the water. I changed the OEM to a Cooper AT at less than 20K because it was worthless in the snow and ice. The cooper was somewhat better if I kept enough weight in the bed but it wore out...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Wow! What a significant upgrade over my Mercedes' OE ContiProContact tires. Smoother riding, quieter running, outstanding wet road traction (critical in our frequent Florida summer thunderstorms) and less expensive as well. Other purchasers report excellent snow/ice traction and good tread life as well. The former is irrelevant to me given where I live, and...  Read More

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

Wow, what a set of awesome tires. I replaced my last set of higher-end performance tires with these. My last set got real noisey and were driving me crazy. I put these P7's on and quiet as a mouse! These tires are very quiet yet they handle fantastic. I've done about 8,000 miles of both city/long highway commutes and they are hold up very well. Great...  Read More

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

This tire is great. It handles better, is smoother riding and way quieter than the factory tires that came on the 2013 Crosstrek. They are great in the rain and you can drive along at full highway speeds without a hint of looseness. With the factory tires you sometimes had to slow down in heavy rain on the highway because the car would get loose and the...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is a compact crossover with a design intended to draw people's emotions to the Kia brand. It has earned a number of awards encompassing design, safety and value. Many Soul drivers request a tire that features good snow traction; and since snow is the most difficult surface to deal with, it only makes sense to prioritize that area.   There are a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus TA11

Bought the Kuhmos to replace worn Bridgestones. Much quieter, although they are still new-ish. That said, I am very pleased with the tires, particularly when you factor in the cost. Have not driven in snow, but in wet/storm conditions I have not experienced any hydroplaning or loss of traction. Not particularly sporty, but neither is a CR-V!   Read More

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

This is an excellent tire for the money. I got the 285/35-20 and traction is great in wet or dry conditions. TheyI have not seen snow or ice yet, but noise levels are very reasonable. I was concerned that going with a much larger wheel and tire than the stock 235/50-18 there would be some tram lining. But these are as good or better than the stock set up. At...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

We didn't realize the car had 18 wheels at purchase. Not a problem, except we usually run Michelin's, which are pretty expensive in this size. So we checked Tire Rack ratings and found these tires...and we have been pleasantly surprised. The tires 'sing' at highway speed which is a little noticeable, but really not an issue at all. They are a lot quieter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

4 years and almost 45k miles on my Speed3 and they'll do anything I ask of them except ice and snow. I don't care about that. Absolutely awesome in the Seattle rain and deep puddles. I've never felt out of control in any hard rain situation. Great 3 season tire. Would buy this series again soon. I still have 1/4 of tread left. They are getting a little noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I love this tire. I have gone through 5 sets of them (that I can remember) on various cars over the years. Hyrdoplaning resistance and traction in inclement weather is amazing, and dry grip is very good. In comparison to Bridgestone Potenza RE 960 AS tires, I feel that these Continentals have slightly less grip in dry conditions but are much better in rain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the runflat tires on my car with these. Never looked back. It's quite good improvement compared to the old version and that one was already very good. This one has great traction in all sorts of conditions dry, wet, snow, ice. Cornering stability is a bit weak, but not sure if that's due to my heavy car or the tire. It's noisy on concrete, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

Great tire so far. Used on 2013 Toyota 4Runner Limited with All Wheel Drive (torsen center differential) and 17 inch SR5 wheels for better off road performance than the stock 20 inch rims. The tires exhibited good hiway performance in wet and dry conditions no hydroplaning at speed limit (70 to 75 mph) in heavy rains on interstates. Predictable response...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

The Pirelli's replaced the OE Bridgestones. The differences are enormous. The Pirelli's are an all around better tire. In both wet and dry conditions they significantly outperform the Bridgestones. Since we live in the Colorado mountains a great deal of time is spent in snow and ice. While these tires do not match a set of good snow tires, they perform much...  Read More

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

Replaced the Dunlop tires that came on the car. I was quiet surprised by both the comfort and performance of these Pilot A/S 3+ tires. I haven't put many miles on them yet but expect to enjoy these tires for many miles to come. I recommend these tires for anyone looking for performance tires with some snow traction.   Read More

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

The wet traction and cornering stability of these tires is great! They aren't as quite as the OE Goodyears that they replaced; there is a hollow droning that is present at speed. But, I will take a little more road noise in exchange for superior road holding ability and wet weather traction. The dry traction is nothing to sneeze at either. I have not had the...  Read More
