Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Replaced the stock Goodyear Run Flats on a 2012 BMW 335i Coupe, with these and couldn't be happier. I was concerned with driving this car in the winter in the Cleveland, OH area.

Winter / Snow Tires for Your Second-Generation (2005-2015) Toyota Tacoma

Over the last several years I've switched vehicles a few times, but have always held on to my solid 2008 Toyota Tacoma 2WD Regular Cab. It's a simple truck with a five-speed on the floor, cloth seats and crank windows, yet nothing is more dependable. Being only 2WD instead of 4WD, it's got one major weakness - it's intrinsically bad in snow. Rear-wheel...  Read More

Great Choice for Year-Round Driving: Continental TrueContact

Ideally, everyone who lives in a climate with snow and ice for at least part of the year should use dedicated winter tires. The reality, however, is that not everyone has the room to store an extra set of tires or tires and wheels. Additionally,  a second set of tires just isn't always in the budget. If you're going to use an all-season tire year-round, Cont...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

I purchased a set of these tires for my '88 Toyota Supra in staggered sizes: 235/45R17 Front, 255/40R17 Rear My car is summer only, and used as a fun car and not a daily driver. I wanted a set of performance tires that weren't so expensive that I would feel bad doing a track day, auto-x, or a smoky burnout. These tires fill that gap quite well.There's no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

great tire, follow manufacture rotation schedule allow me to obtain 100,000 on these LTX Michelin tires. My previous set of tires Bridgestone H/L were very good but lacked aggressive stance of Michelins. My 96 Toyota 4runner has 374,000 miles. The current set of LTX will probably outlive the vehicle.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH16

Factory tires were Firestone FR710s. Those wore out at 33k. Thought these would be better. Toyota dealer highly recommended the kumho's. These tires have about 15k left. Noise continues to increase as the tires wear. They are wearing evenly as they are rotated every 5k. My advise is spend a little more up front and get a quality set of tires. The kumho's are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/T D687

OEM tire that came with the RAV4, this lasted about 40k through many NY/NJ/PA potholes and a lot of random nails and such on the streets of the city. Commuting 50-70 miles a day plus long family trips, no real worries and it held up okay, though noisy and wore down while on the RAV4 (I partially blame that on the Toyota dealership where it's free service...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Replacement tires to the originals on my 2010 Toyota Venza. I'm not an agressive driver and wanted good traction in snow/rain and quiet ride. Have not experienced snow on these tires yet since I just got them at the end of March, but the rain traction is excellent and the noise level is very low with a smooth ride. Very satisified to date with these...  Read More

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

I have had these tires for about a year now and they have worn wonderfully thus far. The dry performance is fantastic, and wet performance is nearly as good. The only factor playing into the performance of the tire negatively would be the fact that I drive a small car. The Toyota Corolla is very light and easily manipulated by weather factors, however the...  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 Michelin LTX M/S2

- Only a person with lots of money to spend can afford to buy cheap tires, because when the tires fail or wear out prematurely, They can afford to go out and buy more tires. However, the average working person with a mortgage, car payment, children in school, braces, and the like, has to buy tires that will last, because they can't afford to go out and keep...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A

Have driven over 1 million miles in Toyota's. Best traction tire I have ever owned. Literally pulled a stuck 4x4 Chevy with a 16 foot trailer out of deep wet snow without slipping a tire. Backed an unloaded truck thru a 3 foot snow drift into the barn. Have over 33000 miles on the tires and still have at least 1/3 tread left. Loaned my truck to my brother...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

We had 56,000 miles on the OEM Goodyear tires and the Toyota dealer was pushing the same tires as a replacement. I decided to go with Tire Rack and the Continentals and I am really glad I did. These are quite, and really improve the ride and handling of our Prius. The Goodyears were hard, noisy, and not at all as sure-footed as these; wet or dry. We even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Enhance C/X

I have Sumitomo tires on 2 vehicles, presently--a Porsche 911 and Toyota Highlander. I am purchasing another set for 3 rd vehicle.

The Highlander is used for extended hockey trips and does 10 to 13 hours at sustained high speeds fully loaded--without any glitches. The...  Read More
