Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 600

These tires had a better treadlife for being strictly a summer tire. I have had all season tires not last as long. However these tires are prone to cupping. The wet traction was sub par.

These tires do everything they say...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I could not believe the handling in the snow & ice with these tires. I have been able to maintain pretty good control while driving the local roads which were not plowed real well. Also, taking it slowly, the tires performed rather well on ice covered roads. Stopping in the snow was not an issue either so far. They seem to grip as I am cornering as well. I...  Read More
