Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I was able to experience these in light and heavy snow as well as ice all in one drive to work this year. In light snow they are fine and braking and steering were still predictable. They did give up a good amount traction in deep snow and ice. Even with all wheel drive I did not feel very confident in the tire's ability to stop and steer around corners. If...  Read More

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

I had a set of the Michelin A/S 3's on my 2008 Audi A6 (19 wheels) and loved them -- all aspects of the tire. So I opted for a set on my 2008 Audi A8 Sport (20 wheels) and initially loved the tires, but as time and mileage accrued, I have noticed a marked reduction in wet weather traction and an increase in propensity to hydroplane. I am only about 1/2 way...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

I bought the truck new with these tires. I keep the tires at 43 psi and to date I have had no problems. I have driven east coast to the west coast and from western NY to Florida and I don't have any complaints to date. I think they last 45000 miles and will most likely buy them again. It is possible that some people do not have enough air in the tire and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

Don't know what everyone is complaining about. I have met numerous Santa Fe owners ('13>'15) who all praise the car and these optional tires on the AWD Sport Turbo. Driven in some horrible snow storms, some with blizzard conditions and never had any problems. Ice? Scarey no matter what you drive with whatever tire. These held their own. Wet Traction has been...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have these on a subaru impreza, and they are fantastic. between these tires and AWD, this subaru gets into our driveway (up hill, gravel, usually slushy or icy) as well or better than my F350 in 4 wheel. the only time that car stutters is if the snow is deep enough to have the car sit on the frame. unstoppable, and 20,000+ miles later, they still have TONS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I live in the country with a very long driveway and travel on country roads. So far this tire has been very good in deep snow and on ice. I have not lost any traction in moderate snow depths, or on black ice conditions. I am very impressed with the traction this tire provides in a rear-wheel, high performance car. The price is great and so far no problems in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I drive quite a bit on the highway and on back roads. I live in te real northern New York near the Canadian border. We get ice and snow. I have waited to write this report to give enough time to properly test these tires according to the other reviews I have read. I drive about 30,000 miles in a year. I have owned over 80 vehicles and have tried all tires....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is a high quality snow tire that makes winters in a rear wheel drive car more comfortable. I haven't put enough miles on the tires to be a great judge of durability, and I've only driven through one significant snow event and the slushy aftermath that followed for the next few days. Although grip is improved, the traction control still activates when...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiCrossContact Winter

Bought these tires just in time for the snow in Europe. Driven 11,000 miles in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria in various snow and ice conditions including crossing through the Alps from Germany to Austria. The all-wheel drive on the Audi definitely helps, but I'm very impressed. These tires also handle much better than the Blizzaks I ran for the previous...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I spent way too long looking at winter tire options, and tireracks' website was by far the most useful.Regarding the Winter Maxx, I liked the reports of good tread wear and general all-round high marks for this tire, combined with the price. (There was a rebate going on.) I purchased the tires with new black steel wheels and had them mounted/balanced by...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

The set of four Continental Pure Contacts I purchased for my 2012 Honda Accord was one of the best decisions I have made. These tires provide a good, comfortable ride and the car handles quite nicely. The real test has been the last couple of months in snow country, which was my primary focus when buying these tires. In the snow, these tires perform very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Had BFG AT/KO tires before and although mostly satisfied with all aspects except snow I wanted to try a different tire. I wanted BFG TA KO2 tires, but my size is not available until November. I needed tires now, after comprehensive research which really ends up confusing as there are as many one stars as there are five for most tires. Frankly these tires...  Read More

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

I live in Chicago. I drive a 6 cylinder front-wheel drive pontiac. I drive the car very hard. I bought these tires after hours of research. I could not decide between a set of winter tires or good soft all season tires. I went with these because they are the highest rated all season tires on this website. I am very happy with them. I cannot say enough about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I have the 31x10.5x15 on my stock 2004 Jeep Wrangler 4.0. They replaced the stock Goodyear wrangler SR-A tires. These were put on right before a snowstorm that dumped 10 of snow and they handled it perfectly. I had it in two wheel drive to test how they handled and in normal driving w/ about 3 of unplowed snow on the roads I had to really push it to get the...  Read More

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

Outstanding! I had Bridgestone's and Kumho's installed on this 15 year old car before. But after reading the reviews on this tires, I decided to trust the public. Man was it on the money!Before buying these Pirellis I just had the rear struts replaced. I didn't wanna write a review until I tried it in the snow around Chicago. I'm absolutely satisfied, happy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I Daily Drive C5 Corvette all year in Michigan. I drove the car to the airport on un-plowed roads at 4:00AM Feb 2 and made it all the way - That was 13 of the worst snow storm we've had here since 1974. I stayed in the 2track paths of 4x4 trucks mostly - but this was still deep enough you could feel the snow dragging on the bottom of the car for the 25 or so...  Read More
