Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I did a lot of research seeking tires for my Jeep as I didn't want to get a non-standard size and/or put a lift kit on the vehicle. The original tires only lasted about 38K miles, so I didn't want to get them again. I also didn't want a car-looking tire. I decided on these and I am so happy I did. They are surprisingly quiet for the type of tire it is. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

This is my 2nd set for the Latitude Tour HP. I upgraded the size, and have never looked back. They have been super on 3 of ice snow combo popular in the Mid Atalntic area. Wet traction has been superior. Dry braking is excellent, Road noise is so far reduced from the OF tire that I thought they were underinflated.Life has been 50K+ with a combo of Hwy and...  Read More

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

I had initially reviewed this tire just after they were installed. I wanted to post an update now that I'm at 5000 miles. This tire gets better with some miles on them. With my vehicle, 39 psi is just right. I haven't seen a decrease in mileage overall, in fact, I might be seeing 1-2 mpg better than the OEM Continentals. The ride is still fantastic and 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 Arctic

For having a RWD car as my daily driver and considering the Miata's small size, people said I was going to have a tough time travelling during the winter. My buddy reccomended these tires for winter since he had a set that worked really well. I have not had any issues driving in snow, sleet and freezing rain as they kept traction at all times. These tires...  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 g-Force Rival

I have owned these tires for less than a year and have definitely pushed above the limit of what I can do as a driver on the autocross in these tires. These tires also have performed very well on the mountain roads providing extra stability and predictability. Just like with the stock Michelin Primacy tires on the tires these tire provide good audible...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I live in central NY where we average 120 inches of snow/year. Further, I live up on a hill whwre the climb is 350 feet in about 1/2 mile. In the past, I have always run Blizzaks which were excellent. But after some research, I decided to try the Ice Guard iG52c, and I am very impressed. These tires are very popular in Canada, and it seems that was their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion ATR

Hard to understand the wide divergence in people's evaluation of these tires. I've read the poor performance ones, mostly from the Ford F150s, and then the great ones. Having driven on every surface in my life, some of them racing, and most of them with these tires now, what I believe is that people need a proper wheel, WIDE enough for the tire and proper...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Replaced my Bridgestone Potenza RE 50's ( they were 10 years old) with approximately 8500 miles on them. 285 30 18 rear, 235 40 18 front. These were really good tires but the road noise and ride was a little harsh. I think age and size played a role.I purchased the Michelin Pilot Super Sports based on reviews on line and from speaking with other owners, (...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HP2

Just put these on the 2011 Chevy Traverse and the are much quieter/firmer/more responsive than the Goodyear Fortera HL OEM tires. Not alot of tires for this size, but this is an excellent choice. I have Hankook on my 2007 Pontiac Torrent (Dynapro AS) and will continue to buy this brand.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H426

These tires came new on my 2014 Ford Explorer Sport. I usually remove non-Michelin tires as part of a purchase deal or shortly thereafter. I was worried about these tires from the get-go especially reading the Tirerack reviews. In this size range there are not a lot of alternatives and I was not impressed by the Michelin Latitude's ratings or price so 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 General Altimax Arctic

thi.s is the best winter tire I have ever owned I have 25000 miles on the tire and it is wore less than three thirty seconds of an inch. I expect at least four more seasons out of this tire.I am currently finishing my third season and they are fantastic. I bought another set for my wife's new Camry.I actually have another set for the summer for my Passat SEL...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

Did not get a chance to drive on these much before switching to winter tires, which are a MUST in the climate where I live. I actually liked these tires a lot and were a good choice of size and composition for the car. There will probably be other contenders when replacement is necessary, but I will run these until that time comes.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires to replace the nearly worn out Turanza EL400s that came on my used CRV. The EL400s were terrible. Hydroplaned constantly and quite noisy. These Yokahamas are fantastic! Living in the Mid-Atlantic region I've had quite a winter to test these guys! Light snow traction is excellent and deep snow traction is very good. I've been able to get...  Read More

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

After 17 years of various Michelin tires on my S70T5a (OEM Pilots, MXMV4 S8, newer Pilots - I got 55k-80k miles out of each set), I finally tried the Pirelli Cinturato P7 AS Plus. Wow. Just wow. I can get up the driveway in light snow without any hesitation. My wife's V70 with snow tires cannot do that. These tires are fun to drive dry, taking corners at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

Without a doubt, this is one of the BEST tires I have ever used on a vehicle! I have about 10K miles on it now & the tread wear is perfect along with the ride & performance. I recently drove from Lancaster PA to Richmond VA in the late winter storm that hit in late Feb and had ZERO issues in several inches of snow and in ice. The ride is smooth and noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2

These are great tires, great traction, great cornering and responsiveness whether on the road or the track. They make the rather stiff ride of a BMW M Roadster more comfortable, are very quiet on the highway and happily cruise along at 100+ mph with excellent road feel. I occasionally take my car to the big track at Willow Springs or the Mazda Raceway (aka...  Read More

Z51 optioned C5 Convertible purchased solely to autocross and short trips since wife has a C5 too for long ones. Car has an extreme alignment for autocross with big toe front and rear and max negative camber available front and rear. Autocross almost exclusively on old concrete WW2 runway in FL year round.
