Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Bought the car with a set of Uniroyals that didn't seem noisy until I put these Hankooks on. Wow! What a difference! They handle great on any condition we have come across so far including ice and light snow.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

These tires came OE on my Avenger R/T, and lasted over 52,300 miles. When new the traction was superb in all conditions, even for me; I'm the driver who likes to leave marks on the asphalt. After about 51,000 miles, we got hit with a freak ice storm with 2 inches of ice on the roads, and these tires (even worn) performed better than I expected. Of course, a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I live in northeast Ohio and we get approx. 60 - 100 inches of snow a year. I purchased these in the fall and experienced all seasons now. They are extremely noise on dry pavement but handle quite well. They seem to cut thru the water in the rain even in a down pour. However, as far as snow, these are the worst. They are like driving on an ice rink...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

I purchased these tires used from a friend who is a very reputable auto mechanic. I didn't know whether they would be very good to run in the winter as the tread was down to only about 25%. However after going through one of the worst winters here in Wisconsin. I was very surprised how well they performed. I would have preferred more tread but they pulled me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I drive a 2011 Toyota Matrix for my job, I drive about 160 miles a day and the Defender is a very good tire, the only complaint I have at this point is the treadwear doesnt seem to be living up to the specs, they are rotated every 10k miles, now I havent had to replace them yet so who knows maybe they will get near the 80,000-90,000 mile range but I...  Read More

I bought this tire after reading reviews off tirerack.com All i gotta say is this tire exceeds my expectations. I live in minnesota so i drove through rain,shine,snow and so far its a improvement over the previous kumho kr21 and uniroyal tigerpaw touring.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Will go ahead and post my initial impressions: These Contis immediately improved the overall ride over my previous tires (Uniroyal Tiger Paws). I've only had them on a few months but have been able to go through the paces through Idaho winter. Really really impressed with snow and hard packed ice road traction. Very confident in wet or dry handling.Fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I've owned a lot of cars and a lot of different tires: Michelin, Dunlop, Continental, Pirelli, Semperit, Bridgestone, Falken, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Firestone, Uniroyal. The only tires I've ever owned that were a close match to these were a set of Semperit M-401's I owned back in the late 70's. I put these tires on my front drive Volvo S60. I drive fairly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

With only 1000 miles so far, I haven't been able to try them in snow yet, but so far I think these are good, solid tires. Much more stable feeling than the uniroyal cross terrains I had before. They drive straight and with NO vibration what so ever even up to 80MPH (so far). Believe it or not, I had 100,000 miles on them when I replaced them and still would...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Affinity Touring

In 42 years of driving, this is undoubtedly the finest set of tires I have ever owned. I have owned top of the line Goodyear, Bridgestone, Dunlop, Uniroyal, and Kelly-Springfield. No other tire I've owned outperforms these tires in terms of quiet, smooth ride, tread wear, responsiveness and sure footedness in wet weather. No other tires I have used even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

I've put about 800 miles on the Michelin Energy Savers. Yes They do....save gas. I went from some worn out Uniroyals with 40,000 miles to these tires. The first tank if gas took me from 18.9 MPG to 22.3 MPG, an 18% increase. the tires will pay for themselves in less than a year of normal driving. They are Michelin quiet, smooth and responsive on top of that....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin HydroEdge with Green X

I purchased this set of tires for my 2000 Seville STS and it is by far the best set of tires I have ever put on a vehicle. My old Uniroyal's were worn out after 20,000 miles and they never rode great on this car, but these Michelin's make this car feel like new. Bumps that were previously felt aren't existent anymore, and cornering stability is much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

I bought my Baja used with just under 100,000 miles on it. It had Uniroyal Tiger Paws on it that looked to have plenty of tread left. Well the first time it snowed I found out that the Subaru has plenty of traction to get going, but I could not stop or steer. Time for new tires. I read the reviews on Tire Rack and checked out Consumer Reports. The Hankook's...  Read More
