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

On my third set of these tires and all were on the 2013 and 2016 Ford C-Max Hybrid. I've experienced non of the negative aspects described by some other reviewers but these tires are on the car only in Spring, Summer, and Fall. In winter I use snow tires as these are not suited to snow and ice. I've never felt unsafe driving at high speeds on the interstate...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought a set of the Michelin Pilot A/S 3+ V rated tires to replace asset of A/S 3 Y rated tires. As the older tires wore they started to tramline horribly - to the point that they were scary to drive on bad freeways. I was concerned about dropping from ultra high performance (Y) to high performance (V). So far so good. I drove from Seattle to Portland in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Living in New York and daily driving a Mustang in the winter can be stressful, but these tires made all the difference. I was able to drive through several light snow storms without any problems, and these tires got me through some heavier snow fall as well, though I tried to stay off the roads when they were too bad. Overall, these tires gave me the...  Read More

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

My overall review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP 2 A/S is that they are ideally suited for the VW GTI.These tires replaced the original Pirelli's at 46000 miles. I normally use dedicated snow tires for nearly half of the year but have driven on the BFG tires since December. My impression are in comparison to the Pirellis on the stock GTI suspension...  Read More

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

Although we have had these tires a relatively short time, in Colorado late winter and spring it isn't difficult to find a myriad of conditions. We live in a rural area but the wife's job takes her all over the front range. We noticed an immediate difference from our OEM Michelins. Pavement cracks are quietly and easily absorbed; wet traction after a snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

I want to be prepared to go wherever I need to go. That means winter tires and used to mean highway all season tires the other three seasons. All season tires were marginal on wet grass, mud, no match for ice and snow, and are even threatened by sharp rocks in gravel. I have sacrificed very little to have all terrain capability with the Continental Terrain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

I live near Buffalo NY. We get a few snow storms each year, and the roads get extremely slippery and icy. Its only a few days each year, but you don't want to get in to an accident on one of those days.My wife bought a set of these True Contact tires a year and a half ago and as we approach the end of the second winter with them I am absolutely amazed at how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I spend 40-50 days per winter snow skiing so snow tires are a necessity. The Xi3 exceeded all expectations in all conditions. I drove in slush, packed snow, deep, fresh snow, ice, and wet conditions on mountain roads and over highway passes in Western Washington, BC, Oregon, and the Sierras in California and found traction during straight-line driving and...  Read More

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

After going last winter on my stock PSS tires (not the best idea I've had), I got a set of all seasons for the winter. The tires are staggered like my summers (225/245). Our one snow event this year was a week before the tires arrived, but I've had the tires in freezing temps, rain, and a paced event at Virginia International Raceway. The tires were better...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Living in western Oregon, the question we ask about winter tires is this: 'What's the best-performing tire for 35 F and pouring rain?' We see ice frequently, but not a lot of snow. The other thing to understand is that our climate is mild, both winter and summer. So our 'summer tire season' (consistently over 45 F in the mornings) is barely 5 months long,...  Read More

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

Low mileage so far but we had 70 degrees in February, followed by 10 inches of snow and some icy conditions then rain. Theses P7s handled everything very well. In fact In the snow they seemed as good as the Continental Winter Contacts they replaced but with a much quieter well balanced ride. My Jetta Sportwagon has no sport in it's handling demeanor but the...  Read More

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

I looked long and hard about 3-4 years ago for a new set of shoes for my 2010 Infinite M35X, and thought these looked like the best bang for the buck...and I have not been disappointed. They only allowed me to rate myself as spirited, but it was a lot closer to psychotic with delusions of grandeur that he's speed racer in his old man car before I started...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Our Pacifica had Yokohama Geolandar A/Ts on it when we bought it, and we needed to go off-road to visit family, so that was all we ever knew in 8 years of ownership. That family has now moved back to the city, so I was looking for a standard tread this time.Based on stellar reviews here, I decided to try the Premier LTX. I noticed a difference even in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Call me crazy, however, these are one of the best performing tires I have ever owned. I run the Michelin pilot sports on both my 2008 VW Jetta Wolfsburg 2.0T FSI, DSG w/K04 S3 Turbocharger upgrade, and supercharged 1994 Classic NA Mazda Miata as summer tires and these on the Jetta for the winter. The Michelin Pilot Super Sports are at the top of their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

I purchased these tyres expecting them to be sub-par compared to other rugular snow tyres, but these really impressed me. I have about 7,000 miles on them so far and they have handled terrifically. I would definitely buy these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

Had a very snowy winter in Reno. Had to drive on snowpack and ice on several occasions. They worked well on all snow, ice , wet and dry pavement.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

What a wonderful upgrade to the Blizzak WS70! Snow ice/performance is stellar as expected. What shocked me was how well the tire behaves in the dry. Unlike my WS70s, these do not exhibit any of the 'loose snow tire feel!' No guilt or pressure to switch them out this way in the springtime, which worked out well with our late winter storm this year.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Cinturato

I purchased these tires with steel rims for my recently purchased Fiesta ST. Due to purchasing the car in late November, I knew I had limited time with the Summer only tires from the factory. I saw these and thought I would give them a try. My impressions as of late are that these are great winter tires, even for the winter driving enthusiast. On the dry...  Read More

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

I have put two sets of these Michelin's on our car and I am about to put on a third. I got 80,000 miles out of the first set, 70,000 out of the second and only replaced because I will be potentially be driving them in snow. My only criticism of the tires is that I have not found the traction to be great in snow and mud the few times I have my Pilot in those...  Read More

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

I now know how the other half live! What an incredible difference. I bought these to replace the OEM equipped Goodyear Eagles, which were acceptable in most driving conditions, but brutal in winter. I started to wonder if it was the car. Nope, definitely the tires! It is not surprising to roll off the driveway and onto a snow covered road in our development...  Read More
