Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

We have driven 44,000 miles on these tires over the past 31 months and the tread depth is now at 4/32-5/32. I live in Upstate NY so this is the minimum amount of tread depth tires should have in order to be able to drive responsively in the winter conditions we experience. Even if I lived in an area that did not get snow/ice in the winter, it's obvious that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Fun Tires!! I was able to drive in 4- 5 inches of snow and the traction is just amazing. It's hard to brake the tires loose. I had to find a empty parking lot and turn off traction control. The tires also feel great on the dry or wet roads. If your looking for a great high performance snow winter tire I would strongly recommend. Let it snow!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I got these tires two years ago and so far they've been the best tire ive ever used. Ive been able to get through mud pits and snowy situations that most people weren't even attempting. I have been honestly amazed by these tires when it comes to how they perform and how they last. I have almost 50,000 miles on them and they still look like they're goin to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

This is an excellent all-around tire for winter driving conditions in the Twin Cities. The tires perform equally well on wet freeways and on snow packed neighborhood streets. Braking action is excellent.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

I replaced my 2nd set of OE Michelin Diamaris due to uneven tire wear, high noise levels, etc. My first impressions were WOW! no noise (low speed or at 85 mph), small imprefections in road surfaces are a lot less noticeable, and handling dry or wet is great. Now that I have more than 2,500 mile on them my first impressions continue.Do they have the same dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I am simply amazed by the abilities of an old, light, rear wheel drive car (without a limited slip differential!) when paired with these tires. Not only is starting traction no longer an issue, the braking and skid resistance abilities of this tire seem to defy physics. I was able to *back up* a driveway steep enough that it was difficult to walk up without...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Excellent tires for the price. One of the best in class for passenger all season. They perform well in the snow for those who don't want to switch over to winter tires I highly recommend these tires. I don't think these tires will last up to 80,000 miles like the warranty says but I'm shooting for 65,000 miles before I have to replace them again. For Prius...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Placed 55,000 miles on these tires so far and will probably get another 5,000 miles on them before the tread starts to wear too thin. I live in Ct. and get a decent amount of snow each winter driving on narrow country roads. I was amazed with the snow traction I got my first winter with them. I realized most brand new tires will perform good in snow simply...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I had initially reviewed this tire just after they were installed. I wanted to post an update now that I'm at 5000 miles. This tire gets better with some miles on them. With my vehicle, 39 psi is just right. I haven't seen a decrease in mileage overall, in fact, I might be seeing 1-2 mpg better than the OEM Continentals. The ride is still fantastic and the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I just mounted these tires before the big New England blizzard, as my OEM All seasons were seeing their second winter, and starting to lose some performance, as expected. The Pirellis did a great job in the sloppy roads, with an excellent bite, good comfort level, and pretty low noise level. I didn't rate them in the dry, because I haven't driven them under...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I had these tires on our 2003 Chrysler T+C. We've used Contis for the past 75K miles and we love them. You get more for your money compared to Michelin and they perform even better. We have three children and these tires made us feel safe in the winter. I know there are millions of reviews out there, but these tires are so worth it. We recently bought a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I used DWS 205/50's on the 16 rims that came with the car but found them to be ineffective in change of season slush or wet snow even brand new or wet roads at less than 4/32nd. I used 185/65-15 General Arctic winter tires and found them satisfactory as a summer tire when they were too worn for effective winter use. In August, I exchanged the 16 alloy rims...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position that replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 on my Acura TSX. The Michelins had poor dry traction as the tires aged and were just ok in snow. The Bridgestones were excellent in all aspects except the winter season. They were terrible on ice or light/heavy snow, to the point that I needed to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I live in the country with a very long driveway and travel on country roads. So far this tire has been very good in deep snow and on ice. I have not lost any traction in moderate snow depths, or on black ice conditions. I am very impressed with the traction this tire provides in a rear-wheel, high performance car. The price is great and so far no problems in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

The A/S 3s are a huge improvement to the last gen A/S 2. Improvements noted were dry/wet cornering stability, light snow traction, and steering feedback. For an all season tire, it did not disappoint in the last 2 winter storms we have had.3-5 inches of snow on side streets and 2-4 on the hwy with temps in the single digits. The tires made all the difference...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

Bought these tires forma box store two years ago to replace a set of Yokohama Avid Touring tires S (also an nice touring tire). I think the Pirellis perform better, (a little squeal on sharp fast turns) I gentle reminder that I need to ease up.These perform a lot better on turns and emergency turns. The stopping distances have slightly reduced. At almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have survived seven PA winters using performance all-season tires but knew it was just a matter of time before my Mustang got stuck and left me out in the cold. I did my research and opted for a set of WS80 Blizzaks for my factory rims and purchased a set of new wheels / tires for the rest of the year.My previous set of tires were Michelin Pilot Sport A/S...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This was my first winter tire purchase and I have zero regrets about buying it. I think one of the most important benefits of this tire was the confidence of its performance driving in snow or rainy conditions. It's handling in adverse weather is incredible compared to my previous all-season tires.The tire is a bit noisy as can be expected by the tread...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm tellin' you, these tires have made all the difference in winter performance of my '15 Subaru. It came w Goodyear Assurance All Season's and I'm very disappointed in Subaru for shipping a car to New England with these tires. Take 'em off and put these General's on! I can't get enough about how amazing this car now just cuts through the snow. The handling,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I'm a 71 year old female who drives 25 miles to work each day and back in very hazardous conditions. I called Tire rack to see what I could do about my tires as my car came with 18 inch tires and it was extremely dangerous in the ice and snow. My salesman suggested that I go to a 16 inch tire with studs for the winter here in Ohio, and sold me new rims and...  Read More
