Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Typical of a Michelin tire, low noise with long life. I run these year round rather than swapping tires for the warmer months. Overall they hold well but you can feel a bit of looseness when cornering hard in wet weather. Currently have about 30k on them and they are at about 5-6/32 so just enough to mostly make it through another winter. These do have to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6

I live in the hills of western MA, where we get quite a bit of snow and ice. So I bought these Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6's in P205/70R16 mounted on plain steel 16 wheels for my Crosstrek for winter. They are just a tad taller and narrower than the stock P225/55R17 Yokohamas. No rubbing issues at all, and in the snow, my crosstrek is unstoppable. They are really...  Read More

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

Superb winter tire, simply fantastic. I'm using it on fairly powerful RWD car, tons of snow in the area every year. Never skipped or postponed a trip, zero issues finding grip no matter the conditions or the temperature out there. It's pricey, and it wears somewhat fast, for most people it's probably good for 2, maybe 3 winters.Quiter on dry and wet pavement...  Read More

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

These tires replace the OEM Continentals at 50K miles, which was probably a few thousand past needing replaced. These tires have been rotated regularly about every 5K miles with oil changes, only rebalanced once recently. They do great in the snow, I work second shift so I tend to be driving home in some adverse conditions during the winter, with the state...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I love to drive in the snow now. I couldn't wait until the first snow fall in Chicago. They don't plow and salt the side streets right away, so it was a great opportunity to test these tires out. These tires perform very well in snow 3-9 or more inches. I have a low profile front end which catches the snow and slows my momentum. But I had confidence that I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Great all around tire. There are certainly better tires for each season, but for snow and ice they are leaps and bounds better than the stock Dunlop Sport Maxx tires . If you live with snow on the ground for the majority of the winter, I'd go with a dedicated winter/snow tire, but if you only get 1-3 inches at a time then these do just fine.You will always...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

This is my third review and these tires are going strong very little tread wear The noise levels have improved a bit at higher speeds All traction measurements except snow have remained constant in other words excellent It has not snowed since my last review so I can't comment on that at this time Overall I am completely satisfied with these Michelin tires I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

I have a fairly modified grand cherokee including axle swap from olen diff laredo to elsd converted to locker axles out of a limited hemi. Its lifted 4 and i admin an offroad group. We wheel frequently and hard. Ive chopped them up a bit from tucking them into a body pinch weld and chunked a little from slicing them and on sharp rocks. They hold up to both...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

These tires are hands down the best in all around performance that I have experienced with this vehicle. The ride is smooth, with superior cornering and steering response, and very little cabin noise. The car glides through tight corners with virtually no body roll, excellent acceleration on straight runs, and a great ride response to the pavement. Many...  Read More

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

I bought these Pirelli Cinturato P7 to replace the stock Yokohamas, which were fine, but fairly worn by 37k. The Pirellis are a bit smoother and quieter and after 30k, still have a lot of life in them. They ride smooth and quiet, good in the wet. Handling is great too. I didn't notice a reduction in fuel consumption which Pirelli touts. I live in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I spent a month on the Tire Rack website for my new to me Tahoe. It already had Bridgestone tires on it and I bought this vehicle from a friend. No complaints from him on the last set. Boy did I make a great decision at this point. Even thought they are just slightly noisy, they have performed better than expected. I made it through winter with no issues in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

When I bought my Volvo used, it had been sitting on the lot since December and had a new set of Bridgestone Blizzaks on. Because I bought the car at the beginning of this summer though, I purchased a new tire/wheel package from Tire Rack and set the winter tires/wheels aside for later use. I chose these g-Force COMP-2 A/S tires based on the Tire Rack ratings...  Read More

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

So far I am extremely happy with the Continental Cross Contact LX20 tires. I was between these and the Bridgestone Dueler 422 Ecopia. Decided to go with the Continentals because they were rated a bit higher for snow and we are in Wisconsin. Just went over 28,000 miles and we have 10/32 on the front tires and 9/32 on the rear tires. Traction has been very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Tires ride smooth and quiet when it's dry and warm. This is one of the best riding, longest lasting tires I have drove on the last 10 years. During the rain, the car easily hydroplanes across 1/2 a lane in med/heavy rain. Passing a semi becomes dangerous, and more than once I have had used calculated maneuvers to actually pass.In light snow the traction is...  Read More

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

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

An excellent tire so far since I have only 1,000 miles on the tire, but so far in summer driving they are just excellent. So far it is a very large step up from the tires that came as orginial equipment. The real test will be this winter since I live in MN and we get our share of very bad blizzards including snow dumps of 24 inches which can cause drifting...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I bought these tires in November to replace some worn out goodyear rs-a that came on the car when I bought it. I have owned several different uhpas tires, including Dunlop (can't remember which ones), Falken 912, Falken 512,etc. These are by far the best I've driven. They're quieter than I expected. More comfortable by far than the goodyears. Better at...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXV4

Our new Odyssey Elite purchased in January 2015 came with these tires. During both winters (end of 2015, 2015/16) these tires were removed and replaced with snow tires. So there are 15,000 miles on these tires roughly. One pair is down to 4/32 inch and the other pair is at 7/32 inch. We are now getting serious vibration at highway speeds, indicating the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

Long time listener, first time caller. I've used tire rack to support my tire purchasing decisions and as a way to promote vehicle safety to family and colleagues for years.When it came time to replace the OE tires (Dunlop Sport SP 01 A/S) on my daily driver, I did a considerable amount of research including talking with the experts here at TR. I enjoy...  Read More
