Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

After reading all the negative reviews on this tire I had to go out and verify it was the OE tire on my wife's 2010 Subaru. The tires are the OE set and just passed 60k miles on them with zero issues. The dry traction was everything it needed to be and I could pull into traffic with confidence knowing it would not lose traction (AWD helps too). These tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Dont have to many miles on them so far, but so far amazed for the price they totally changed how our 2011 subaru legacy rides and handles. It handles and rides the way the car should have from the factory. quieter, smoother, and handles incredibly. Worth every penny! Even my wife noticed the differences, and she isnt a car girl   Read More

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

At 40k, I replaced the stock Yokohama Geolanders with Assurance Triple Tred All-Seasons. The Yokohama's still had 7/32, but at about 30k, I started having hydroplaning and noise issues. Also, last winter, the snow/ice traction had noticeably decreased. With a baby on the way, and winter approaching, I wanted a safe tire for my family. Coupled with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Coming from TripleTread tires (UV checking shortened their lifespan), the Michelin Premiers have been a joy to drive on. The turn-in is effortless, it's like the powersteering suddenly started working. Handling is superb, and I have the sense that the limiting factor is the car itself. After a 3000 mile round trip from Phoenix through Las Vegas, across much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Purchased 2010 Subaru Forester XT (turbocharged model) with studded snow tires in late winter. Naturally the Michelin Premiers were paragons of silence in comparison, but after six months and 6,000 miles, they have been a surprisingly quiet tire, even with the studded tire ruts we have in places here in Anchorage Alaska.Steering input and response is light,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Excellent winter tire. No change in fuel use and predictable handling in all conditions. Jetta feels better in snow now than my old Subaru did. Came down steep hill with glare ice recently with no slippage whatsoever.   Read More

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

These are perhaps one of the best sets of tires I've ever owned. I can only judge them from the short period of time they have been on the car, but so far they have performed tremendously.We have gotten lots of snow in the past couple of weeks (it has set all-time records). These tires handle wonderfully on snow packed roads, they effortlessly drive over...  Read More

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

These Pirelli tires are a tremendous improvement over the Continental ProContact tires that came with my Outback. The Continentals were replaced at 65K miles and still had over 5/32 inch tread left. Other than great tread wear, the Continentals were average in other respects. The new Pirelli P7 tires are perhaps the best tires I've ever bought. They are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have never found driving in the snow so easy until I slapped these ----as on. The amount of traction in anything over an inch of snow is mind boggling. These tires will make you wonder why on earth everybody is going so slow around you. Paired with my Subaru WRX and all wheel drive, I have been unstoppable in every snow storm this winter. Having fun in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Somewhat disappointed in the capability of this tire in slush and heavy snow. It's forte seems to be the ability to perform under icy conditions. The lack of traditional lugs in this tire inhibits its ability to channel snow. Understand I do have these installed on a late model Subaru Forester and purposely downsized to put more concentrated weight on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

I have 2 Subaru Foresters. My 2013 has the Geolanders on it. I haven't driven in deep snow, but I live in Colorado, so I would put snows on for deep snow. I was all over the East Coast last summer on every kind of dirt road there is and these were quiet and gripped the road perfectly in all sorts of nasty conditions. Rain, mud, water, etc. I am impressed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I love this tire, this is the second set of NEW tires I purchased the first one were these Toyos witch were supposed to have been all season but they were really bad in the snow so I got these Kumho tires and I got to tell you it is like night and day, it is very good in the snow for a NON snow tire, it is quite and smooth. I only put about 100 miles on it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta 4X

Within 2000 miles tires began to cup. I had EVERYTHING examined to find the cause and everything was up to spec and it was determined that the tire design was the culprit. I have never had this happen on any other tire and frankly in any car I've ever owned. I thought I had an out of phase drive shaft it was so bad. Loud and you can feel it in the steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01

This tire came standard on my WRX. I had originally planned to switch to an all-season tire right away, but decided to give these a try. Since we have very few winter weather events here, these have worked well all year. There have been a few times that I've taken an alternate vehicles to avoid cold, slippery roads, however, for the sake of safety. I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

The set of Potenza RE760 Sport tires were on my 07' Subaru GT when I bought it used but were like new. I drove them 30K and still had roughly 5K left on them when I sold the car. For that 30,000 miles I will say those tires were outstanding for cornering, stopping and launching. With the AWD system it was like having Velcro. However, when the temp. drops...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

This is a great tire for Subaru's. I have high expectations and want to go more performance oriented(studded tires). However, I live in Michigan which does not allow studs so I went with Michelin X-ICE xI3. I always push my car hard whether braking hard on snow/ice and it does a pretty good job but I feel like it needs a little improvement on ice and on...  Read More

Continental TrueContact: A Competitive High Mileage Option

The Standard Touring All-Season tire market is a competitive place filled with multiple options from many reputable manufacturers. Traditionally featuring speed ratings of S and T, the goal of a Standard Touring All-Season tire is not to provide the most crisp handling or on-center feel, but rather to provide good all-season traction, a quiet and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I've been using TireRack and Bridgestone Blizzaks on my cars for 21 years, starting with a 1993 VTEC Prelude. I always downsize one level to keep a narrow winter profile. My '08 Civic 5-spd started with WS60s, now wears the WS80s. While the WS60s had great ice traction, the WS80s are superior and have better steering response. My old Blizzaks drove through...  Read More
