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

I have put 40,000 miles on these tires, and I will be putting on a set of the newer AS3+ this weekend. I have been buying, researching, and driving tires for 2 decades. I am a true car guy, and I love driving, and I really wanted to drive the -------- out of these to see what they could do. First, I know it may sound crazy, but I never once rotated them. Yet...  Read More

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

Replaced a set of Bridgestone driveguard RFTs the dealer threw on my car to replace the OEMs. Wow, what a huge difference going from a run of the mill grand touring tire to a UHP tire like this. The car feels like it accelerates faster, insane grip around the corners. Heavy rain no problem. Did a run up a mountain where it got it got as cold as 14 at the top...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Recently finished a ~1000 mile roadtrip through the Sierras during winter. These tires EAT UP snow. With these on my WRX, I lost traction (on accident) all of a couple times over the course of the trip. With basic sense (no HARD acceleration/cornering), you won't have any problems whatsoever.Ice traction isn't the best, but you need studded tires or...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I did not order my Focus RS with the winter wheel and tire package from the factory - it was not an option for my early order. But when I found out that the factory winter wheel and tire package came with this specific tire, I decided to buy a set of 18 wheels with the Alpins mounted from Tire Rack. I could not be happier with my choice - Ford chose these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred

I have had three sets of these tires on two different Honda CR-V's (2002, 2011). They have a nice soft ride quality, solid handling in wet/snow conditions, and the service has been about 60,000 miles for each set. I rotate them every 6000 miles and they are maintained for inflation and for inspection. I will most likely purchase them again, as they have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 RunOnFlat

Other reviews say these tires are horrible in cold/wet situations. This tire isn't made for wet/cold days, but have had no issues in the rain or cold with them and no issues out of them what so ever with my aggressive driving style. I have even gapped a few drag radial'd 5.0's on them from a dig. They hook great for a street tire/run flat.. I drive my car...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

These tires have been great. They lasted long, were very efficient and reliable in strong rain, on heavy snow and light off-roading conditions. Only once did I have a problem not being able to drive a steep icy hill when the tires were brand new. The snow was easy to drive on but it couldn't handle the ice. Honestly, I don't know if any other tire would have...  Read More

AWESOME tires.....especially for snow and ice.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

I have had three high powered Mustangs, including my current Roush 360R Mustang. I have been using Sumitomo HTR Z III for my front and rear tires for a while. They are the best bang for your buck. They might not be the best tires for track or racing, but for every day tires they are best in my opinion. Tire Rack is always providing great customer service and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

I am on my second set of these on my forester. best tires I have ever owned. these on the forester are basically unstoppable in pretty much any on road driving condition. I live in the Chicago area and have dealt with a fair amount of snow and pot holes and hot summers. these tires have never giving me a single issue. I will continue buying these tires until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Run Flat

I bought these during the first snow and ice in the Portland area in December and was eager to test them. Luckily we got a nice storm the past few days and I am sold on these tires. My girlfriend lives on a nice hill where the UPS truck in chains would spin and my MDX with the other tires would slide. After installation these tires climbed that hill like I...  Read More

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

I am extremely happy with these new tires. Not only do they look good on the car but they also make the ride so much smoother. In these few 500 miles that I have tested them, I've gotten all kinds of weather. Sunny and dry, very wet, snow, etc. And no complains whatsoever. I work up in a hill in CT and while it was full of snow and even icy, the car did not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Bought the 17 General Altimax Arctic tire/wheel kit to replace the 18 Summer/Sport stock tires on my WRX. (The stock Subie set were absolutely terrible in snow.) So anyhow, I got these and it made a HUGE difference. No sliding and very good traction. Just don't get too crazy with the power of the WRX and the tires (235/45/17/94Q) grip very well. They have a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Ice Zero FR

I only have about 1500 miles on the tires with my WRX and so far am very satisfied with my purchase. We had an 8 inch snow last week, which made getting around hard, but my WRX just drove as if the roads were dry. Sure, I was careful, but I could stop, start and change direction without any problems. True, they are not the best handling tires on a dry road,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've used winter tires for nearly 20 years and had previously been loyal to Nokians. The winters in lower Michigan are not as severe as northern Michigan so I decided to try the Michelin Ice X and am very satisfied. Great traction on light snow and slush. Excellent control on ice. These are very quiet tires with a comfortable ride. I am impressed. And the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I purchased this set for my recent 8,000-mile, clockwise trek around the country. Hitting every possible weather and road condition you can imagine - there was a blizzard in NY all the way to MA; torrential downpours and dirt roads in TN and TX - I was able to maintain all legal speed limits with 100% confidence. Being a seasoned track driver, I rely heavily...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

We were planning a 3500 mile cross country drive and I knew I wasn't going to be safe with the bowling balls my car came with (I bought it used, these were not original equipment tires but budget-minded replacements). I went with the Pirellis based on Tire Rack's review and I am very pleased. Quiet, smooth, comfortable, with remarkable wet traction. These...  Read More

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

Purchased and installed these tires to replace the summer only tires that came with the performance package. Definitely a difference between the two. Cold weather traction and traction in snow and ice are exceptional, even for an all season tire. Only have 2500 miles on them so far so will have to update the review once more miles are put on the tires. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I have heard Michilin tires were the best so I try them on my 2500 dodge ram diesel 4x4, stick, these tires are the best tires I have ever had. Performance, comfort, weather snow or rain. I'm a lifetime customer. I will never go anywhere else no matter how much these tires cost. They far exceed anything I could of imagined.   Read More
