Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I currently have these tires on a 2004 BMW 330Ci. There were a lot of bad reviews on here about these tires but I decided to buy them anyway because of the much lower price and the $80 rebate offered. I owned a pair of Hankook Ventus RS2 about 5 years ago and those tires were the best (200 tread wear). The cornered compared to the Micheline Pilot Sport 2 for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

These tires performed very well in all Wisconsin seasons, including snow. I ran these tires on my Sienna and Taurus concurrently and was pleased with the winter performance on both vehicles. I am now shopping for tires for both vehicles and will not put these on again simply due to noise. Very, very loud tire, especially as the tread wears down.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I never knew my Subaru had wind noise before installing this tire. The lack of road/tire noise from the Turanza Serenity Plus is astonishing. So far, wet, dry and snow traction feel very similar to the Bridgestone Potenzas that I took off after 59,000 trouble-free miles. The steering feels a little meatier with the Turanzas(which is no bad thing). We've only...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Are you kidding me? These are snow tires? Amazing!! They are much more quiet than the OEM high performance all seasons that came on my car. They grip better in the wet and the dry, they have firmer cornering behavior and oh yea, they are snow tires! Which means great cold weather breaking power too. Stop reading and just buy them already... I will never put...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

This tire combined with AWD does very well on my BMW 330Xi during the Northeast winter. I am very impressed with the dry, wet, and snow traction for a high performance snow tire. I really don't think any all-season tire can match this level of traction in both dry AND snow conditions. Noise and wear so far have been very good. No complaints. Honestly, this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Overall, I have relatively satisfied with the performance of these tires. I got them through a local installer in Nov 2014 and now have 5 track events (~750 miles total on track) plus daily driving (~7000 miles) through the winter and spring. This includes wet track day conditions, torrential rain on the highway several times and a couple icing conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have driven in terrible winter conditions all across Canada (for 20 plus years) and these tires are by far the best I have ever owned (I am talking SUV driving). From heavy wet snow to hard packed snow in -30 windy conditions, to black ice, to ice....these tires have never let me down. They have been so good, I have rarely had to resort to flipping the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

The greatest upgrade for a car in winter, period. For the longest time I swore by ultra high performance all-season tires, and simply accepted the sliding, and fishtailing as part of normal operation in winter. I was convinced I needed an AWD vehicle to brave the heavier snow. Getting these tires however has completely changed my opinion on it however.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

I use this Mazda CX7 in all weathers around Pittsburgh, with occasional road trips to up-state New York, Canada, and across Ohio. Winters cold, snowy, and icy. Spring fall rainy, Summers can be very warm. Generally pleased with the all round performance and noise levels, which help make this vehicle fun to drive. However, had hoped to get more than 30,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

When I went looking for a set of tires, my first-ever snowy winter was fast approaching me. I had spent my entire life up until that point living in the hot deserts of southern California, but was attending college in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I had no idea how to drive in snow, and I couldn't have two sets of tires - one summer and one winter - because I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (V-Speed Rated)

These tires offer a good balance between performance & economy. I use snow tires for winter driving, so these will be used for summer driving. I drive nearly 20k miles/year, 8-9k miles/summer. I need tires that will last at least 4 summers, but I like to drive and want good performance too. These Goodyears fit the bill. Dry handling is very good, though not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

This review is for a person that has a vehicle like mine (2013 Porsche Cayenne S) with 21 inch wheels & summer/performance tires and needs all-season or winter tires for some winter driving. There are no all-season tires available in 295/35/21 size. I just had the Tire Rack Perelli Scorpion Winter tires installed and from a driveability and noise standpoint...  Read More
