Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Last week I put identical sized tires and rims on my AH3 M sport, and my wife's BMW X1. 225-45-18. Michelin x-ice 3.So far, they are the best handling snow tire I have ever used. Dry pavement handling does not feel like a snow tire, but more like an all season. Stability and traction are superb. There is no floating all over the road like I felt with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Commercial T/A Traction

I purchased a set of these for my truck back when I was still working as a contractor and needed tires that could handle snow & mud. Then, I got injured and retired, and got involved with the county fire & rescue volunteers. Now my truck is fitted out as a mobile radio command post and on call 24/7, so dependable tires are even more critical. And these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

very smooth and quiet tire for my XC90. I don't know if the mileage is any better, but this is my first Continental purchase and I'm quite happy. I was going to buy the Pirelli Scorpion Verde, but they don't make them in my needed size...I'm very happy that my second choice turned out so well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin my whole life (and driving for 22 years). These are hands-down the best performing tires in winter conditions that I have experienced. This is the second set of winter-only tires I've owned (other set was Dunlop Wintersport M3 in the same size on the same car). I've also driven this car with the stock Bridgestone Potenza...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

I was stuck in the same rut as other Toyota 4Runner Limited owners with VERY limited replacement options or change tire sizes to 275/55R20 . The OEM Yokohama Geolandars barely made 35K miles and were extremely NOISY by 25k miles- so I knew I didn't want them so I made the switch to these Michelin LTX M/S 2. I am SO glad I switched. The noise, ride and...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace the extremely noisy Bridgestone Turanza's that came factory with my 12' mazda3 iGT. I upgraded to 17 matte anthracite MOMO revenge wheels in the process (factory size for Mazda3 sGT) to give a more aggressive look as well as cut down on the sidewall to increase handling. I STRONGLY recommend doing this to anyone with $ to do so. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

The Michelin PSS is an amazing tire, and worth the money. I went with the stock size, 235/50/R18 for the Mustang GT. Compared to my stock BF Goodrich KDW, they made a completely different car. It turned my sloppy muscle car into Porche. However after 7,000 miles, they're already past the wear bars. I do drive it pretty hard in daily driving, and do 2 - 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle RS-A2

Slightly over 10K miles on my 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack and I driver it hard most of the time. She gets 25MPG on the highway at 80MPH, so I can't complain. Ride comfort is great on these tires and road noise is not a problem. Traction seems to be very good. I only wish they would make them in a little wider size so I could stagger the tire sizes on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Diamaris

Bought a used 2005 X5 and needed tires within 3 months of purchased. As my first BMW and an SUV at that, I was very impressed with the handling but shocked at the price per tire ($300+) . Tire Rack has the best prices so that helped. Another shock (didn't notice at purchase was the different sizes, front to rear, so no rotating. This became my wife's car and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier R7

So R7s are my first step up from R888s, Advans, Pilot Sport Cups and Pirelli Corsa (on newer Porsches) and other like R comps through 10 years of track experience. I replaced worn out R888 245/45/17's at 4 corners of my trusty old track prepared '98 M3 - first thing of note, the tires are substantially wider in sectional width than like sized other brands of...  Read More

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

I live in Jackson Hole, WY and needed a tire that could handle the deep snow we get and steep hills that are never cleared while being somewhat quiet on the asphalt once the snow is cleared. I was nervous about keeping my 315 rears as i've been told it creates too much of a snow buildup to move through - I even considered getting a set of 265 rims for all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

These will be the 4th set of AD08s I have had over the years. I have tried many of the other Extreme Performance Summer' tires including RE-11s (1 set), Star Specs (1 set), and R-S3s (2 sets). (I have not tried the BFG g-Force Rivals because they don't come in the size I need.) These however are still my favorite street tires and I will continue going back...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

Used this tire on Ram 2500 Cummins Turbo Diesel - often hauling 13,000 pound 5th wheel. Does great towing, in snow, mud, dirt, and low noise on dry road for the size (315's) I am impressed with the treadler even when pumping them up to handle towing applications. Very good tire if you use your truck for what it was meant to do   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek Touring A/S

This is a follow up to my original review a year and a half ago. 35,000 miles on the GrandTreks with dedicated snow tires utilized in the winter, so I have no experience with these in snow. They are still running very smoothly with only a barely perceptible increase in road noise. Guessing I will get 10,000 more miles out of these for a total of 45,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Due to the lack of availability of the sizes I was using I started looking for a tire that could do well and being cheap at the same time before I switched to bigger diameter wheels, after my research was done this was the winner, after a year of use/abuse I recommend this tire blindfolded, the hydroplaning resistance is incredible and tread wear is very...  Read More

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

I LOVE to drive. Enthusiastically. Hard. My car is not stock and should be putting out about 358 hp. These tires when new had exceptional grip for both acceleration and braking as well as cornering. I now find rear wheel spin fairly easy to achieve when TC is off. The car came with same size Dunlops that were quieter and had less rolling resistance though...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Great tires if you don't consider price. When you factor in the price, they are AWESOME tires. I will definitely purchase another set for my M5. Wet performance and hydroplaning resistance is outstanding. Tires are quiet compared to other tires of this size. Tread wear is far better than the Yoko Advan Sports I ran previously. Highly recommended.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

These tires are the best I have ever driven on . I previously had Eagle F1-D3 (I think) which were great on wet roads but not great on tire wear. I was going to buy a new set but my size was no longer available. Based on ratings, I decided on Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I could not have made a better choice. I have no idea on tread life (these kind of tires...  Read More

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

My 2014 Audi S5 came with Pirelli PZero Rosso, 255, 35 YR, 19 tires; great, sticky summer performance tires to be sure. By 10K miles, it was easily time to replace them. They'd become very loud, and the OK wet handling had become squirelly at best. I decided to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 in the same size and speed rating (both are also load rated...  Read More
