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 Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (W-Speed Rated)

For the Marauder, these are far superior to the BF Goodrich in every way I care about. Very quiet highway tires with nice smooth controlled ride. I don't drive this car in snow/ice so I can't comment on winter use. I hope these are still available when I need them again. I was so happy when I first got these I promised myself I would write a review if still...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

I have had this set of winter tires for three years now. I would absolutely recommend this tire to anyone, I have never been stuck in any amount of snow, can stop and start almost as well as in the summer and the response time is fantastic. I researched all tires on this site but thins one rated better on everything, and it was no lie. I couldn't be happier...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have been completely satified with these tires!!! My Lincoln LS V8 is rear wheel drive, which proves it's own challenges in winter driving. I live in NW Ohio, and suffered a very hard winter last year. I was commuting 130 miles/day for work,,, sometimes through 6 inches of snow... and a couple times on ice!!! With those conditions I never felt as though...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

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

Given the compromises of an all-season tire over a dedicated summer or winter tire (which is usually what I have to choose), these tires are the best all-seasons I've ever had. They have excellent wet/dry cornering grip and brake very well. They almost feel like dedicated summer tires. Surprisingly, they do all this and manage to be very quiet. They also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have only 8K on the tires but they are def not an all season tire, you will need winters. As for driving in dry conditions i would rate them as average in the way of noise and handling.. i just recently bought the Extreme Continentals DW for my convertible and for the extra few bucks i suggest going with them. Hope this helps.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

I use my car for just about everything, Mail delivery, city driving, highway/trips. I hit all seasons and elements with this car. Really impressed with these Goodyear Ultra winter tires. Very nice gripping tread!!! I cant rate so high with ice but then again I didn't get the studs in the tire, even without them they still seem to do good. 3000 miles so far...  Read More

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

We were so impressed with our first set of Altimax RT43 tires that we purchased another for our Jetta TDI. The car is mostly driven by my wife 120 miles/day commuting to work. With the winter we've had so far we've had little snow to deal with but again these tires didn't disappoint. Traction is great in the snow when combined to the TDI's DSG transmission....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

I replaced my 2nd set of OE Michelin Diamaris due to uneven tire wear, high noise levels, etc. My first impressions were WOW! no noise (low speed or at 85 mph), small imprefections in road surfaces are a lot less noticeable, and handling dry or wet is great. Now that I have more than 2,500 mile on them my first impressions continue.Do they have the same dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I like these tires. I bought these tires several months ago, but didn't get any real driving in because I was having some work done on the car. I'm only writing this review because I'm highly impressed with these tires. Today is 4th of January and it is a slightly rainy day in Western, PA. I drive 60 miles one way to work I do not normally drive this car in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

You'll see 75,000 above and go huh? Well, that's because I bought one set, drove 40,000 miles on them, then purchased another set. I've driven my Camaro across the country from Washington, DC to Seattle, from DC into Canada, from DC to Maine, as well as DC to down south. From tackling the streets of Washington, DC, Boston, New York City, Chicago, Seattle,...  Read More

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

Moved from Firestone Firehawk {OEM] to this tire. The ride and control are awesome! Like riding a rail. Yes they were expensive, but the control is incredible. Control on wet surfaces are the same as on dry. Bought this tire due to the need for extensive winter driving in the Northeast and I have not been disappointed. Just a wonderful experience.Control...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

I just mounted these tires before the big New England blizzard, as my OEM All seasons were seeing their second winter, and starting to lose some performance, as expected. The Pirellis did a great job in the sloppy roads, with an excellent bite, good comfort level, and pretty low noise level. I didn't rate them in the dry, because I haven't driven them under...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Have them on my Odyssey Touring. First season with them with several snow storms in Eastern Ohio. They have handled everything that winter has thrown at us thus far, minus 2 inches of solid ice in our alley (we weren't able to back in to our garage as normal, instead had to pull straight in). Wet, dry, and light and deep snow traction have been great and...  Read More

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

The A/S 3s are a huge improvement to the last gen A/S 2. Improvements noted were dry/wet cornering stability, light snow traction, and steering feedback. For an all season tire, it did not disappoint in the last 2 winter storms we have had.3-5 inches of snow on side streets and 2-4 on the hwy with temps in the single digits. The tires made all the difference...  Read More
