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 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 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 Michelin Pilot Super Sport

There is not a single street car that cannot be made better by putting these tires on. The hype is real. I use these exclusively for summer tires and have a second set of winter wheels & tires. Even though the winter tires are excellent at their intended job I always can't wait for spring to put these tires back on. The ride does firm up a bit because of the...  Read More

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

Very impressed, I bought these tires so i did not have to change out from a summer tire to a winter one and the reputation of the previous generation of BFG AT's. I drive a combination of Canadian 2wd Highway commute, 6x12 dirt bike trailer pulling and 4wd trail driving with the trailer with a Nissan X Terra 6M Off Road. These tires have exceeded my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Purchased set of 4 tires and wheels for 2004 COMP GTP. Love the tires. Felt every bit as good as Michelin Pilot Sport tires that I have purchased many times in the past for many of my vehicles. I really saw no difference between the Hancook and the Michelins with possibly the exception of initial cold weather ride when first starting out. There is a very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion STR

I am getting a new set after the initial set that came with my Ford Edge lasted 56,000 miles, they would have been on for at least 3,000 more, but a hole in one did not seal so I decided to replace the set. I was amazed at how long they have lasted, and I live on Long Island--lots of driving. Once I had 8 inches of heavy wet snow in my driveway, when my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP

Great performance tires on all road conditions but I am a little disappointed. At 23,000(rated for 30,000) miles the tread still has more to go but there is excessive tire noise thumping, often called feathering, caused by flat spots on the outside edge of the tire. Four wheel alignment and balance has always been spot on. The noise is forcing me to go...  Read More

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

I searched for a tire that had better Ride, Noise, & Tread-wear, as rated by the customers. I purchased this set because I needed 20 tires to go with the Helo Chrome wheels. I preferred the OEM Tesla 19 wheel Vs the OEM 21 higher performance/lower profile tire because of the Wear factor and Road Noise. I also do not believe there is any advantage to low...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I replaced a set of Firestone Destination LE (not II) that had lasted about 35,000 mi. In comparison, these tires were orders of magnitude quieter. They are great on dry roads, I have had to make a few emergency stops and have felt quite confident in their performance. Quick starts on wet roadways result in absolutely no wheel slippage (partially attributed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

I was not a believer in snow tires. Every year I had a problem going up a hill to my house. Many times I had to park at the bottom and walk home. I gave in and bought a set of snow tires. (I had a harder time believing I need 4 instead of 2!) WOW! What a difference. I went up the hill in the heaviest snow. I live in upstate NY and we had a wild winter. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

Attended SCCA Starting Line school in the driving rain and my car equipped with a fresh set of RE-11's had the fastest times when driven by the instructor or myself. Standing water in a number of spots on the course and these tires constantly delivered. Slides easily recoverable with a lift of the throttle. Excellent manners on turn in. Can't wait to try...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

Purchased these tire along with some 16 wheels as a winter set up for my IS300 and I'm happy with my investment. Is300 is a small RWD car and getting around in the snow on all season tires last year was scarry not to mention potholes ruined two of my low profile 17 tires. Two days after putting these on I had to drive through about 2 of unplowed frozen...  Read More

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

Great tire...needed rear wheel drive snow ability for 10 to 15 winter days so I did not want to give up performance but needed a tire for all conditions...so far this tire has done everything in a superior way. Will buy this tire or its follow-on when I need the next set. Tire rack (Cody) was very knowledgeable on some specific technical questions.   Read More

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

Ive previously installed 245/45-285/30 bfg kdw2 on my Ls6 swapped E36/5 compact and the grip was subpar for the money and they were very noisey on different road surfaces. Installed a set of 205/45/17 comp2s on a set of 17x8 bbs track wheels, slightly stretched but overall squared up. The level of the grip from the 205 surpassed the 285s without a doubt and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z II

Let me start by saying that the Mustang GT should have never been sold with 235's on it. I upgraded the factory 235-50ZR18 P Zero Nero's to the Sumitomo HTR Z II in a 255-45ZR18. The upgrade to the 255 Sumitomo makes the car so much more enjoyable to drive. I've only put 100 miles on them so far, but the difference in traction is phenomenal.My car is lightly...  Read More

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

Recently installed a set of Goodyear Eagle A/S on my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT and love them. The previous tires were Michelin Pilot Super Sports, they had good traction on dry, warm, smooth pavement, but rode rough, noisy and had a nasty habit of following every groove and rut in the pavement. Scary as -------- in the wet. Only got 20,000 miles out of them before...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

These have been the best tires I have ever purchased! I am a very spirited driver and usually replacing tires around 15k miles. However, these have lasted much longer. So long I just preformed a service an had not noticed that they are worn below the tread indicators! The grip and confidence I had in them when I purchased them remained all the way to the...  Read More
