I bought these tires for my 2005 Ford Crown Victoria after several winters of getting stuck on a level surface with one inch on snow on it. This car is probably the worst possible vehicle to drive in winter conditions, so I thought it would be a good test vehicle for these tires. So far here in cleveland we have had rain, snow, ice, and slush. These tires...  Read More

Amazing tire. Just had them installed last Saturday (11/29) and on Tuesday morning I got caught in an ice storm driving my Z4 and I never slid once. I-64 was partially closed in the opposite direction because of the many accidents. I drove carefully but I had no problems accelerating or braking on the ice. My previous tires couldn't even handle a left turn...  Read More

I drove from Durham NH back to central Maine during the snowstorm last wed afternoon and had no problems with loss of traction on either interstate or secondary roads. I purchased the Tirerack recommended tire/wheel package and am completely satisfied. I had to pass many vehicles which came to complete stops on small hills(about 0.5mi long),probably using...  Read More

Tire Rack's delivery was faster than what I was expecting! I've used Tire Rack for years and recommend them several times throughout the year. I live near Akron, Ohio, USA, and have had these Generals for a year now. They're GREAT! I use four of them on an AWD Impreza. I drive in the city, on the highway, and occasionally on grass, dirt, or mud. I have them...  Read More

Steering and cornering are good although the odyssey itself is sloppy in this category. Great in rain. Have yet to try on snow or ice. Very pleased.   Read More

These Tires are awesome this is the first dedicated snow tire I have ever owned so I have nothing else to compare it to but all the reviews I saw on them convinced me to try them out and I couldn't be happier. I have not been able to get these tires to loose traction on cornering or anything else short of smooth ice but what does grip ice? short of using...  Read More

Still running the AT2's I bought in early 2010 for my Honda Pilot. Though nearing the end of their useful life and likely to be replaced this upcoming spring, they still have tread and have never left me disappointed. Road noise has been a bit much on the highway, but never excessive. Deep snow traction has been phenomenal, and I've pulled numerous cars and...  Read More

Had these tires put on 45 days ago - use my car for business travel, a lot of highway but city and sidestreets. Noticable difference in handling and ride - slight hum that has diminished over the last 500 miles. Tire installer said the tread was aggressive - which I take to mean a slight trade-off on road noise verses traction in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky...  Read More

Adding my review mainly because I have read so many bad reviews for these tires on wet surfaces. I have enjoyed EXCELLENT traction in extreme Florida rain. I feel very confident traveling in a pack at a moderate rate of speed in very wet conditions and with almost as much confidence as I do when traveling in the wet at speed in my 2007 Tahoe equipped with...  Read More

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

I put these on just before the snow started,and have driven dry,wet,standing water,slush,warm snow packed,cold snow packed and icy. We made 6 200 mile trips in 10 days and they worked great in all of the conditions, except for the warm snow packed, about the only thing that would work in those conditions would be studs. As far as highway noise they are...  Read More

Switched from OE non-run-flat tire to the DriveGuard tire within the first 3,000 miles on vehicle in order to add the benefit of a run-flat capable tire. I did not notice any difference in ride, handling, traction or noise levels. It did add peace of mind while driving knowing that, in most instances of a flat tire, I would not have to worry about pulling...  Read More

This truck came with Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires and they treated me well for 100,000 miles. My driving is 60% highway, 35% back country roads, 5% city. I kept them inflated to 40 PSI & got almost 20 mpg all around, experienced very little hydroplaning issues and thought they did very well in the snow, though I admit my lead-foot days are behind me, and I...  Read More

I just replaced my aging Michelin tires with this set from tire rack. A week after we had our first snowstorm in northern NJ. The tires handled the snow with no issues. I saw a lot of 4x4 SUVs sliding up one hill by us and I had no issues at all. In the dry the tires are very quiet and the steering response is similar to the Michelins, which were a lot more...  Read More

Bought the DWS Conti's for my C5 Corvette based on reviews and I've also had a set on a BMW M3 that I drove year round. They are very,very quiet and they ride much nicer than the OEM run flats. The softer sidewall results in steering response that is not as sharp as summer tires, but once you turn in, the tires grip well and are predictable. Traction is...  Read More

These Continentals have been the best tire I've put on my Civic in the 7 years I've had it. They were very well balanced from the factory and require little balancing on installation, especially compared to the Khumos I had which were really bad in that respect. Wet performance is night and day from regular all-season tires. I live in a state where we don't...  Read More

These tires are awesome! Like having 4 wheel drive. Last two winters were a nightmare with the factory tires. Upgraded to these with a set of rims on recommendation from a friend with a 3 Series, he loves 'em. Have driven in snow and in icy conditions, tried to make them lose traction, had to push it real hard to break them loose. He said they do wear very...  Read More

Best snow you will ever buy, period! Everyone who complains about how bad their car is in the winter, I tell them about this tire. Every single person has come back amazed. They can't believe it's the same car. People who think their all season tires are good, haven't tried a true snow tire. Not even close, these tires will walk circles around them. My dad...  Read More
