Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

After about 25,000 miles of aggressive driving the front tires were pretty bald, but the rears still had about 75% left in them (front wheel driver). I could see a mild driver making 70,000 miles with this. The cornering abilities of these tires is something extrordinary. Pulling 0.92 Gs in corners without breaking the bead in a higher sidwall tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

The first half tread wear has been great. At this point I figure they are half worn. Noise is starting to be noticed. Traction in very cold snow packed conditions is not good, ice traction is low as expected. They are a very nice quiet riding tire so far. Had them 3 seasons so far, figure 2 more seasons of wear left, but they won't make another Minnesota...  Read More

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

I bought these All Seasons( with low expectations ) to replace my fast wearing yet sticky Summer Pirelli P Zeros. When new the Pilots are squishy while cornering even moderately aggressive. This lessens and eventually goes away around 500 miles or so.I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and these tires got me to and from work in the snow all winter. My S4 didn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

First time buying winter tires and i couldnt be more happier. I put my car through the worst snow ever and never got stuck. The grip on these tires are amazing. Ice traction is ok, have to be more carefull but they are pretty loud on the highway. Overall great price for winter set.   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 Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I drive mostly on highways and I've been through several brands of tires with not much luck for one reason or another. I decided to try this tire based on reviews and a 700 tread ware life. These tire were installed 20000 miles ago and have not had to balance again, silky smooth and very little noise. The best tires I've ever owned. I do not drive much in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60

I have this tire for only 600 miles. However, I live in Colorado, so we get different weather now in November. When I installed this tire temperature was in 60's. There is no doubt this tire is made for strictly winter conditions. It is soft on dry, steering response is much worse then with all-season tires, not to mention Michelin PSS I put in garage until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

This tire came as a winter wheel/tire pkg i purchased from TireRack. We in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have recently experience a strange start to the winter. with temperatures ranging from +15c to -25c, rain, snow, hail. These tires have performed great. Being a high powered RWD car, i haven't had any issues getting moving safely through light and deep snow....  Read More

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

I replaced my OE Potenzas with these F1 all seasons. I got tired of having to swap wheels every winter and put on the Dunlop Winter Sports, so I'm trying all season tires. I put them on in April, so I haven't driven in snow yet, but on dry pavement and rain, the Eagle F1s perform as well as the stock Bridgestones. Cornering is awesome. The F1s handle the...  Read More

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

The OEM tires had a severe hydroplane and wet traction problem so I looked for a wedge design similar to some Pirelli tires I used in Ireland. Found these and my fear of driving in wet weather disappeared. Agree that they are noisy but safety trumps noise any day. They proved to provide excellent traction in our upstate New York winters. Just purchased...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Last winter I was using Bridgestone Insignia 200 all-season tires. They were OK with 150# ballast in the trunk but ice was still very difficult to manage.I decided to try the Blazzak this season since the all-seasons were about half worn down. On snow pack roads these tires feel as if I am on a dirt road in summer! On ice, well that's ice but you do have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Affinity Touring

I put these on our minivan last fall before driving up to Sandusky from Pittsburgh. They ride nice and seem to handle well..On dry ground. We get snow and the van is parked. If the street is so much as white our van doesn't move. It's really quite pathetic.I just ordered a set of Firestone Winterforce's for my Forester, I don't really need them but they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Absolutely amazing tire for snow! Unsurpassed dependability. I live in Wisconsin in the country where roads are not plowed well if at all sometimes, I fear no snow with these tires and have pushed my car to the limit in snow, I'm an aggressive/ offensive driver and have tried to send this car around with these and it just sticks! Drove through 10 in of snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I put these tires on in June and enjoyed driving interstate miles on them in the Rocky Mountains for weekend expeditions. Great traction in rain, resistant to hydroplaning in large puddles on the interstate. I drive up to ski every weekend and these tires have been great in the snow. Deep snow is no problem for these tires, they are no snow tire or studded...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

All of my ratings are for driving the Odyssey moderately, not like a sports car. How else do you drive a minivan full of people ? My daily driver is an Acura RSX Type S, the minivan for my wife and I drive occasionally. The important qualities for a minivan are tread wear, ride comfort, wet traction in the rain, and steering response. It was great for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak W965

Best winter tires apart from studded. I live in Michigan and drove home to New Brunswick Canada (20 hours) every holiday season so there is loads of snow to get through and these allow my little car to get there safely and comfortably.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I am ordering a new set of 4 X Ice for my Audi A4 even though I could still get more out of my previous X ices which are entering their third winter season, but when it comes to snow and ice driving I have learned it's best not to extract the last ounce out of a tread. I love these tires! They handle nearly as well as my summer Extreme Contact Continentals,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Two New England winter storms thus far on these tires. No issues, I've made it to work and home (+) to do usual errands without any loss of traction or lack of confidence with grip. The true confidence (to me) is that I can usually get when I want to go, but with snow and ice on the road having the confidence with STOPPING is the thing. I travel mostly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

During this summer, I bought a set of winter rims and tires through Tire Rack for my 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD. I live in MN and All season tires don't cut it. Furthermore using winter rims really keep your stock rims sharp far longer (sand & salt issues).So in the past I have purchased multiple sets of Blizzaks which have been excellent in all winter conditions....  Read More
