Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

After 56,000 miles the S of the DWS has just started to show signs of being unreadable. These have been the best tires I have ever had as an all season tire. I usually put snow tires on every vehicle but decided to try these in the winter since I put them on in October of 2013. They have been great driving in Wisconsin.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Winter is over and it is good time to tell now my experience. First of all I'm on Canada, We have a major store here that claims that they winter test most things and in their winter testing Continental Purecontact were not listed. I'm a picky buyer, the guy that do the homework in forums, ratings web page and customer experience.I got them before winter, no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Have these tires on a dedicated 17inch steel wheel. Did not notice any difference in ride from the OEM 20 inch on Goodyears. Noise is a little louder than a all season tire due to having them studded at 0-30mph. Anything over 30mph and you cant hear the studs anymore. Tires do exceptionally well in deep snow. Pulled out a mini cooper in 20inches of fresh...  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 a great value. Good traction in snow and reasonable on dry roads. I use these for spirited winter TSD rallies and feel safe with them.   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 Ultra Grip GW-3

Bought these tires in 2010 and (as of March 2016) still have a significant amount of tread life on them. They are only used during the fall/winter months as alternates to the summer only original equipment tires. They handle very well in both wet and dry conditions. Good in moderate snow but I did get stuck once in high snow fall amount. I'll give them a...  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 General Altimax Arctic

Great winter tires! I had Blizzak before, and these are cheaper and just as good. Really quiet on the highway, smooth ride, and excellent snow grip. I would absolutely buy again.   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 Premier A/S

The tires that came on my 2012 Ford Focus were so bad in snow, that my wife was afraid to drive car. We live in Michigan's UP, and my wife drove 45 miles to work all year round. She though the car was the problem. I had a hard time making it out of over drive way when it was snow covered. I switched to Michelin Premier A/S tires, it was almost like putting...  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

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

So I took my winter tires, Nokian Hakka's off about 10 days ago then we got dumped on with 6+inches of snow. I drove about 60+ miles yesterday with my Michelin Defender LTX MS in slushy, icy conditions and when I got to the local roads there were some unplowed roads. The tire did well. It's not the performance my winter tire would give as they are designed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have used General winter tires on my X3 for many years and this year I have tried an all season. These new all season tires are unbelievable! I had a chance to put them to the test this month when we received our first good snowfall in the mountains of Utah.I was able to climb unplowed snow covered hills with about 4-5 inches of wet snow without ANY...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Initially this tire was great! After first rotation @ 5000 miles, the tires began a balancing issue. Found out two of my four are out of round and it takes a bunch of weight to balance them. This will never get any better on this set. It is a great tire in light snow and ice conditions if driven properly. I would use this tire in the future on a serparate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

I just replaced the original Continental CV95 with these Platinums and the are possibly the best tires I've ever purchased. Important to my driving habits are Road Feel, Cornering, Braking, Acceleration & Wet Traction. Also Treadwear, Durability against NYC potholes and Value are vital. Said and done, this tire exceeds my expectations!This past Summer I had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

About 3 years ago I ordered new 15 inch wheels and tires here on Tire Rack due to limited stock tire choices. The Michelin Defenders were excellent, but after 70,000 miles, I decided to get new tires for up coming the winter. Since the Fit has a pretty hard ride, I was looking for a comfortable tire with good wear ratings. I love the old Altimax tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

This is a superb performance winter tire. Living in the DC metropolitan area, winters are mostly dry or wet rather than snowy, but serious snowfall does occur (not to mention road trips where snow is to be expected). These tires handled everything the weather threw at them with aplomb, including dry roads, wet roads, slush, packed snow, and ongoing heavy...  Read More
