Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I drove from Durham NH back to central Maine during the snowstorm last wed afternoon and had no problems with loss of traction on either interstate or secondary roads. I purchased the Tirerack recommended tire/wheel package and am completely satisfied. I had to pass many vehicles which came to complete stops on small hills(about 0.5mi long),probably using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Tire Rack's delivery was faster than what I was expecting! I've used Tire Rack for years and recommend them several times throughout the year. I live near Akron, Ohio, USA, and have had these Generals for a year now. They're GREAT! I use four of them on an AWD Impreza. I drive in the city, on the highway, and occasionally on grass, dirt, or mud. I have them...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

These Tires are awesome this is the first dedicated snow tire I have ever owned so I have nothing else to compare it to but all the reviews I saw on them convinced me to try them out and I couldn't be happier. I have not been able to get these tires to loose traction on cornering or anything else short of smooth ice but what does grip ice? short of using...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Still running the AT2's I bought in early 2010 for my Honda Pilot. Though nearing the end of their useful life and likely to be replaced this upcoming spring, they still have tread and have never left me disappointed. Road noise has been a bit much on the highway, but never excessive. Deep snow traction has been phenomenal, and I've pulled numerous cars and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

I can't contest for the mileage yet as I just purchased these less than 1000 miles ago. As for every other aspect of this tire,,,,,, WOW, I've owned winter specific tires in the past (Bridgestone's WS60, Firestone's and Dunlop's)The Bridgestone's were hands down a superior tire over the Dunlop's and Firestone's. But these Pirelli's have changed my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These tires are awesome! Like having 4 wheel drive. Last two winters were a nightmare with the factory tires. Upgraded to these with a set of rims on recommendation from a friend with a 3 Series, he loves 'em. Have driven in snow and in icy conditions, tried to make them lose traction, had to push it real hard to break them loose. He said they do wear very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

Best snow you will ever buy, period! Everyone who complains about how bad their car is in the winter, I tell them about this tire. Every single person has come back amazed. They can't believe it's the same car. People who think their all season tires are good, haven't tried a true snow tire. Not even close, these tires will walk circles around them. My dad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Great all around performer. Smooth, quiet ride, nice stiff sidewalls makes my truck ride all around much better. Stock Dunlops were a joke in comparison. Great in winter conditions. Snow flake rating and new compound deffinately is no lye. Alberta winter conditions are no problem for this tire so far.Brand new tire so I can't comment on wear yet. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

Tire rack timed out my review. Not going to retype the whole thing. These are the best snow tires I've ever had. Best tires I've ever had in snow and rain and I worked at Timberline Lodge for several years in addition to snow sports so I have plenty of experience driving in winter conditions and on many different tires.Drove 1600 miles and through the rain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Though I absolutely love these tires on my VW Passat 4Motion wagon, they are completely different story on the Avalon. This is a large front drive high output V-6 sedan with a soft suspension. They handle just like the Michelin MVX4S that came on the car. Couldn't wait to get rid of the Michelins after 40,000 miles. Steering response with the Pure Contact is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

My first review of a Jeep tire. Wow. Just a great reality tire for off road and on road with no real noise, great wear, and great snow traction. I plan to buy again.It took about 300 miles to break them in (molding or whatever), but even in the -15F week we had last winter they remained super soft and compliant. Their only possible weakness is I think they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

This tire provide great dry and wet traction in winter. The dry and wet traction is as good as high performance all season tires. It is quite comfortable and provide good fuel economy. It is a little noisy but not very bad. For slush, ice or light snow covered road it is excellent, provide great grip that you can travel with confidence. When snow is deeper,...  Read More

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

Only have about 1200 miles on these tires but am very pleased soo far. I lived in Wyoming and it is winter here so most of the miles are on snow packed or ice covered highways or on graveled ranch roads with up to 5 inches of snow. I have made a couple of 300 mile road trips and am very impressed with the smooth ride and lack of road noise. I am compareing...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

This is my first set of snow tires. I've always used all season tires, but never again. I put them on in November. I was a little worried that they would be rough or loud on dry pavement, but they are nice and quiet. Of course handling isn't as good as normal summer tires on dry pavement, but the compromise is acceptable. Snow is where these tires are worth...  Read More
