Best All-Season and Snow Tires for Your 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions. The Jaguar F-TYPE is too great a car to store away for months at a time! Performance Winter / Snow tires will give your F-TYPE some grip on cold days and snowy...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+ Might Be the New King of the Hill

We had the opportunity to take the test BMWs on the track this week to test some of the brake pad offerings from Hawk. There were a few options that offered braking bite and quietness for different applications. But more on that later, because the unintended star of the day may have been the tires that were used for the test. For a stop-and-go performance...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just finished my first season on the Michelin X-ICE3's, in West Michigan, and was very pleased. 2015/16 was a mild winter for us, but still plenty of opportunities to try out the grip of these tires in snow, slush, and ice. I drive my manual-transmission rear-wheel-drive Chevy SS sedan in a spirited manner from time to time when conditions allow, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I purchased a set of four of these tires for my 2005 S2000, a rear wheel drive performance sports car. They were mounted on wheels for the 2003 model year, as snow tires are not available for the larger 2005 model year wheels. The tires were 205/55TR16 in the front and 225/50TR16 in the rear.The tires were amazing in snow. Light snow on reasonably...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

This set of Blizzard was installed 1 day before the only big snow storm in New York. After city snow removal, my van was buied in a 4 foot of packed snow/ice mixture. Took me 10 minutes to cleared my driver door entrance only, I was able to drove the van out of my spot. I only had 1 foot of spare room in front & behind my van. My neighbors were shocked to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I only have about 4Kmi on these four tires, but I am very happy with their performance, most notably in the snow we had this past winter (2016). They do seem to strike a good balance between wet traction, dry traction, rolling resistance, and road noise. I selected them from moderately priced tires primarily after reading other buyers' reviews. So far, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

Cont'd from March 18, 2016...My subjective opinion is they really don't cause you more money. As a matter of fact, except for the hassle of swapping wheels and tires (in my case), it is a concept of conservation of tread life, like having a second pair of shoes. You get to wear each pair (first and second pairs) for a longer time-wise. In fact, I also feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Short version: 95% of the performance of a summer tire, 95% of the quiet and comfort of a grand touring tire, 90% of the performance of a winter tire. The best all around tire I've found. I have these tires on all my cars, a Chevy Volt, Mercedes SL550, Mercedes E550, and had them on my Mercedes GLK350.In Colorado, conditions can go from dry and warm to snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I have 16K of mixed summer/winter driving on the Continental True Contacts. Winter handling is great in light, medium, and deep snow. Rarely does Traction Control or ABS activate. These are the best all-season winter handling tires I've ever driven on. My previous tires were Bridgestone RE970 AS Pole Position which were amazing in the summer but virtually...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

I bought these tires based high marks given by a national magazine and they did not let me down. I did drop down a rim size for my winter tire change which I suspect enhanced the ride comfort but most noticeable is how quiet these tires were for a winter snow and ice tread. I drive to snow country every weekend and these tires handled every condition I faced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion Touring (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Not exactly sure of the mileage I got out of the tires. It's just an estimation, during the winter months I run snow tires on the car. So as to the rating of snow performance. The site doesn't let you skip fields when rating how they perform. Overall I like these tires, they are certainly priced right. The real reason I wanted to write this review is my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These tires are excellent. I generally run Blizzaks, but we were not planning to keep this car so I wanted something cheaper to get through the winter. These tires were about $150 less for the set 16 car tires, which is a pretty substantial discount. I can say after a season of good snowfall that these tires perform as well as Blizzaks and I will purchase...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

OEM Tires for my car were the Asymetric Summer tires so when it came time to replace them at 30K Miles I opted for the All Season version. I'm not disappointed at all. Living in SE PA we see all types of weather and temperature. I managed on my Summers through two winters and clearly my cars performance was reduced at temperatures below 45 degrees. The A1...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I live in Central Minnesota and have found this to be an outstanding snow tire. I did not need to put my Tahoe in 4wd this winter in snow depths to 4. (We didn't have anything deeper in this year's mild winter.) The tire performs well while braking on slick and snow packed surfaces. For a snow tire it is very quiet on the highway and, overall, it performs...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

I use my 2006 Porsche Cayman S as a commuter car so I opted to go with an all-weather tire instead of the standard performance tires. I've been very pleased with the Goodyear Eagle F1 All-Seasons. Very confident traction in rain and wet conditions, there's slightly less grip in dry conditions compared to the performance tires but nothing that would make you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I've been very surprised at how capable these tire are. My car came new with Pirelli Corsa 'steetable track & competition' tires, which are not recommended for near-freezing temps. I wanted to drive the car year-round so I needed some cold-weather tires. In the Tire Rack comparison test it was phrases like very nice balance of on-center precision and...  Read More

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

Excellent tire. With that being said don't expect it to perform in winter conditions on the level of a specialized snow tire. I drive 72 miles a day five days a week and I barely even notice any road noise from these. They handle very well in any condition except snow and ice (even then its more driver than tire) and do very well in the rain. I've had them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I put these tires on my Crosstrek for the winter and really liked them. It was a warm winter but these tires offered a good comfortable ride, both in the city and on the highway. The few days it did snow in New England, these tires performed as I expected any winter tire to and inspired confidence driving when conditions were not at there best.   Read More
