Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

WOW!, You guys are freak'n awesome. Everything I needed was right here and priced accordingly. For the money I could not have matched the price on this winter wheel and tire package, especially when one factors in mounting and balancing. What really blew my mind was the fact that my order was put together, shipped, and at my door in a little over 24 hours....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I care about traction more than tread wear, and these tires are it. There are no better tires in the snow, ice and wet, and they do well in warm dry weather as well. The trade off is tread wear, but I'm okay with that. They came as original equipment for the premium package of the Audi Avant, and at first I was hesitant to replace them, but they did so well...  Read More

The All-New 2016 Mazda MX-5 Tested on Our Track

As a longtime owner of a first-generation Mazda MX-5 Miata, I have been very excited about the upcoming 2016 model. The new 2016 MX-5 is often referred to by its production code "ND" in the automotive community as opposed to the previous generation 2006-2015 model's production code of "NC". The design of the new generation MX-5 has been impressing drivers...  Read More

As we saw for ourselves at Willow Springs, Ford has done an awewsome job with brand new S550 2015 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack! As you can see in the video, the driver had a great lap, but even the best cars can desire more grip. How about swapping on some custom fit closeout matte graphite 20x10 ET40 Hotckis Y-Sports on Extreme Performance Summer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I drove from Durham NH back to central Maine during the snowstorm last wed afternoon and had no problems with loss of traction on either interstate or secondary roads. I purchased the Tirerack recommended tire/wheel package and am completely satisfied. I had to pass many vehicles which came to complete stops on small hills(about 0.5mi long),probably using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

Got these tires with a wheel package (18x8 Enkei Performance M52 Hyper black). Awesome combo. The wheels are very high quality and really bump up the appearance of an already great looking vehicle (my opinion of course).The stock Goodyear RS-A's were great tires. I was going to get them again, but upon reviews I splurged for what reviews said were an even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

Selected a 18 wheel and tire package from Tire Rack. A must for a high horsepower rear wheel drive car. Had a rough winter in NE Ohio this year and had no issues getting around. Deep Snow and Ice traction was excellent. With the narrow tire profile I never felt the front of the car plow when turning.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

GREAT winter tires! I went with the Tire Rack Winter tire and steel wheel package. One thing about going with this package is if you get hubcaps MAKE SURE you zip tie them on or they will be gone within 48 hours as mine were. They barely stayed on the rims but I thought it was good enough. Now on to these great snow tires, my wife drives a RAV all wheel...  Read More

A New Look for Your MR2 Spyder

Name a fun, affordable and reliable mid-engine car? Sounds like a trick question, but the 2000-2005 Toyota MR2 Spyder hits that rare trifecta. WHEEL DIAMETER As you look at Spyder wheel options, you'll see wheels ranging in diameter from 15"-18". Although the Spyder can run 15", 16", 17" and 18" wheels, staying with a 15" wheel allows for broader tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Road Venture AT KL78

Bought these last year as part of a winter tire/wheel package for my wife's Ford Edge. My wife and I are very pleased with these Kuhmo's. We had no issues whatsoever driving anytime the snow accumulated. In fact I looked forward to driving on the unplowed hilly streets this past winter. These tires are somewhat noisy due to the aggressive tread pattern, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

I purchased a 2013 Ford Explorer 4x4 in December 2012. It came with Michelin Latitude Touring tires 245/60R-18. These are probably the worse tires to put on an SUV and after reading a lot of reviews possibly any car. I went through two Cleveland winters with them and refused to take on another. I consider these Michelins to be absolutely treacherous in snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The original tires on the Sonata 2.0T were Hankook's and were touted as all season tires able to handle light snow. Well those tires were downright treacherous in the ice/snow, even in light snow. I decided after driving in last year's Baltimore winter which was quite snowy and cold, I would opt to buy a set of winter tires as part of a Tire Rack wheel/tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season

Crow for dinner anyone? Back when I purchased my VW Passat it came with the ContiProContact P7's 235/45 18's and so I knew they were about as Plain-Jane as you could get. They were also noisy and they didn't really blend well with my Sport Package Passat.Onward: I was so annoyed with the loud noise I swapped out the very cool VW 18-inch wheels for the not so...  Read More
