Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

My original street tires were worn out in the mountains of NorCal. They served me well, but they were street tires, and on a dry summer day made for some spirited tight corners on the sierra nevada roads. The problem is, I needed something to get me to the mountains during winter,and the stock tires didn't do it for me. Fast forward and I move to Michigan....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Bought these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone tires on my '13 Highlander after 50K of city/hwy combined driving. OE Bridgestone tires were okay, but I was looking for a better all season tire for all types of driving here in eastern PA.Reviewed all of the TR testing and reviews and decided to go with these Michelins. After 7,500 miles of fall, winter, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Tire size is 215/45-17, the OEM spec'd size. The feedback here is after 52k+ miles on the tires. I've had the tires since Jan-2016 and average 3400 miles/month or 40.8k miles/annum. The review is not as comprehensive as I would like because we had a light snow the past winter. To reflect this, I had to leave the heavy snow and ice ratings as N/A.The feedback...  Read More

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

I bought my car lightly used with 32000 kilometers on it which translates to roughly 20,000 miles. When I got it it had the Pirelli P6 Four Seasons tires which, until I got these installed, I thought were pretty good. With the P6 4S I found turn-in and general cornering stability a little sloppy which I attributed to not having the sports suspension on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Travel from Washington to Wisconsin requires good winter tires. I have been very pleased with the Scorpions in any/all conditions encountered. 90% of the time it's dry, so I want to be able to drive like summer tires and also have them quiet. These do both, yet when the wind howls with blowing snow across the Dakotas, they stick and handle very well in that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I got these for my 2015 Tahoe, and they made this truck what it is - luxury SUV that can go anywhere. These tires are phenomenal. Please don't listen to people bashing these tires in winter conditions. People bashing these tires for poor snow performance should learn : a. These are not winter tires. b. how to drive in winter conditions.Tires are performing...  Read More

What Tires Are on a Lexus 2017 RX350?

In the luxury midsize SUV market, the Lexus RX350 ranks as one of the best. It’s easy to see why thanks to a great looking interior, spacious room for the driver and passengers, good power and impressive standard features. With a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine, the RX350’s tires need to be ready to handle that power and translate it into comfort and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I bought these tires at the end of the Winter in April of 2016. We ended up having a snowstorm which put about 3 inches of snow on the roads and I had just switched from my Michelin X-ice Xi3's to these tires. I was really impressed with how well they handled the snow. Granted, they were brand new, and they were still no match for my Xi3's, but they did...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

THESE TIRES ARE USED IN PARK CITY UT IN A SUBDIVISION UP ON A MTN SIDE. OUR ROADS ARE SO STEEP AND SNOWY THAT THE COUNTY SENDS AROUND A FRONT END LOADER WITH CHAINS ON ALL FOUR WHEELS BEFORE THE SNOW PLOW COMES BY! TEN INCHES OF WET, SLICK SNOW, UNPLOWED AND I HAD NO TROUBLE MOVING, STOPPING OR STEERING AT ALL. THE FEDEX DELIVERY SUV WAS STUCK, AS WELL AS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Hi, These are the BEST set of 4 Snow tires that I have EVER BOUGHT for any of my Ford Mustangs , mostly GT , EVER !!! You can not go wrong here with these General Altimax Arctic !!! The price is INCREDIBLE !!!On my previous Mustang GT 's , for the winter, I ran a full set of 4 Dunlop Graspic. Decent tire / decent price, however they where VERY noisy & QUICK...  Read More

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

These tires have met or exceeded all expectations. I do a lot of highway commuting and these tires are as quiet and comfortable as I could hope for on a small car. Fuel mileage using this tire is slightly better than previous tires, but I don't see any huge savings at the pump. I have between 7 and 8/32nds of tread left, so I expect to get around 75,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

I have about 22-23k on this DriveGuard tires, and I can honestly say they are THE BEST tires I've ever owned. This car came with Continental tires from the factory, and they worked, but didn't do anything specially great. I would consider them a middle of the road tire. Since then I had a set of Goodyear's which had a good price, but were really sub standard...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

These came OEM on my Camry and will definitely not be replaced. Undriveable in the winter with even minimal snow, uncomfortable to drive when it rains, and make more noise than my snow tires. At 20,000 miles they're pretty much worn out, I wouldn't be able to finish the summer on them. Looking for a dedicated summer performance tire to rotate with my snows.   Read More

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

OE on the Mustang; just taken off for winter tires. Overall, i was impressed with the dry weather traction--enough stick to make the car fun to drive without a harsh ride. Steering response feels good. Downside was noise level--the Blizzak snows were actually a bit quieterOverall a decent tire for the Mustang Ecoboost--no experience in snow; wet weather...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

Obviously not many miles yet. Today, I was out and about while a winter storm was beginning. It was cold out, so the snow was light and fluffy, not wet snow. With maybe an inch or two of snow, compacted in some areas, traction from a standing start was OK. Even with throttle modulation, there was some wheel slip invoking the stability/traction control. Even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Nice price, and smooth ride but mushy in the corners. It is a more comfortable ride than my Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus, but much softer sidewalls, and cornering is definitely affected. But with potholes in Kentucky chewing up and spitting out my Michelins, (now out of production), I needed a more economical choice. We'll see how it handles snow this...  Read More

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

I bought these tires for my '13 Wrangler, that I regularly abuse on the trails, in addition to daily driving. On dry streets, they're comfortable and quiet. On the rocks, they have plenty of grip to get me where I need to go. In the mud, they respond better than one could expect from all-terrains. No, they're not mud tires, but they do still have some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've just finished my second winter season with these tires and I couldn't be happier. I bought these because the winter before, I had driven on all season tires and had a lot of trouble getting up the hill going out of my neighborhood - one day I couldn't make it up the hill and had to stay home from work. It wasn't any fun driving down the major roads,...  Read More
