Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

2013 was not a good year for me, in terms of getting through the winter. I had to park my 2011 370Z all winter and drive around my 2003 Ford Escape beater. I upgraded to the 2015 WRX STi in 2014 and with the news that 2014 will have bad snow season, I decided to get dedicated snow tires and wheels. I didn't want to break the bank, I decided to go with the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

I live in Chicago. I drive a 6 cylinder front-wheel drive pontiac. I drive the car very hard. I bought these tires after hours of research. I could not decide between a set of winter tires or good soft all season tires. I went with these because they are the highest rated all season tires on this website. I am very happy with them. I cannot say enough about...  Read More

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

Great all around tire for all sports cars. One word of caution, when the description says light snow, it should really read no snow. Bought these tires a month before a winter snow fall came through my home area. My car was unable to operate in the 3 inch that was left behind. I would recommend a set of snow tires if you expect to see any snow in your area.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

There is not a single street car that cannot be made better by putting these tires on. The hype is real. I use these exclusively for summer tires and have a second set of winter wheels & tires. Even though the winter tires are excellent at their intended job I always can't wait for spring to put these tires back on. The ride does firm up a bit because of the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Used this tire to replace a set of factory Kumo Solus KH25 tires with only 13,000 miles on them(worst tire ever).These tires are like night and day compared to the OEM. Living in New England, I needed a good all-season tire and after putting these tires on, I can drive in the winter weather again. The car tracks nicely now(know more wandering around...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position RFT

These replaced OEM Bridgestone RE050 rft's which were worn out in back after 20K miles. I heavily researched options and we wanted to stay with rft for the security if we had a flat since there's no spare. While we don't intend any winter driving, we wanted strong dry and wet performance, along with a smoother ride and longer treat life. The difference...  Read More

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

I searched for a tire that had better Ride, Noise, & Tread-wear, as rated by the customers. I purchased this set because I needed 20 tires to go with the Helo Chrome wheels. I preferred the OEM Tesla 19 wheel Vs the OEM 21 higher performance/lower profile tire because of the Wear factor and Road Noise. I also do not believe there is any advantage to low...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

These are great for My Subaru XT on the highway they handle almost the same as all seasons which means there is very little difference do to the H speed rating. Anyone that ones a turbo car knows it is really easy to go fast and then you have to maintain control and stop. These tires are able to do all of that with no problems. The ride is amazing for winter...  Read More

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

I put these on my Sonata to replace the stock tires which were the worst winter tires I've ever owned. These made me feel secure well beyond what I had hoped, the traction in snow was worlds better then the Hankook tires on my car at half the price. I'd recommend these to anyone that's having problems with traction in snow.   Read More

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

Great tire...needed rear wheel drive snow ability for 10 to 15 winter days so I did not want to give up performance but needed a tire for all conditions...so far this tire has done everything in a superior way. Will buy this tire or its follow-on when I need the next set. Tire rack (Cody) was very knowledgeable on some specific technical questions.   Read More

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

I bought these tires for my wife's Jetta after I was told the Firehawk Wideoval Indy 500 Summer tire was being discontinued. I had been running Blizzaks for the winter, and wanted a performance tire. The salesman told me that this tire is a great all around performer. I decided to test out the Firehawks in the snow, before putting the winter set on. Not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires to replace the nearly worn out Turanza EL400s that came on my used CRV. The EL400s were terrible. Hydroplaned constantly and quite noisy. These Yokahamas are fantastic! Living in the Mid-Atlantic region I've had quite a winter to test these guys! Light snow traction is excellent and deep snow traction is very good. I've been able to get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

We bought these for my wife's Tiguan. She immediately noted an improvement over the all season Continentals that came on the car, which are a bit soft (greater slip angle) when turning. The Michelin's talked to her better about what the car is doing.We took the car to a day-long winter safety school at Team O'Neill rally school in northern New Hampshire. On...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring

Got these tires with a wheel package (18x8 Enkei Performance M52 Hyper black). Awesome combo. The wheels are very high quality and really bump up the appearance of an already great looking vehicle (my opinion of course).The stock Goodyear RS-A's were great tires. I was going to get them again, but upon reviews I splurged for what reviews said were an even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Originally used the AVID V4S--absolutely awesome entry level sport tire (discontinued). I switched to this tire because it was developed from the V4S. It's not as good in my opinion, but has excellent traits.The low rolling resistance technology incorporated is great for commuting, ok for track use--the sidewalls appear to be a bit soft. Still provides more...  Read More

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

Great three season tire, works as advertised. However on the hills of Pittsburgh-area this winter they were useless, as others have said not good in the snow period. Wont make me any less loyal to the Michelin brand but don't waste your time in the winter.   Read More

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

Had these tires on for 5 months, one complete Minn. winter. So far they are great. A little soft in the sidewalls. You notice it during hard cornering, but nothing to worry about. Traction in snow, on ice, dry pavement all is excellent. Very quiet, nice ride, definitely a good tire. Wear is perfect, had alignment right after installation.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought the Firestone Destination A/Ts based on their very high ratings in the Survey section at Tire Rack. In the past, I always thought Michelin made the best tires, so I was somewhat skeptical of switching to the Firestone brand. After 11 months and 19,000 miles of driving, it's clear that the Firestone Destination A/T is the best tire that has ever been...  Read More

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

I've had this tire for a while now for my Accord V6 sedan and like how smooth and quiet the tire is on the highway. Dry & wet traction is respectable and satisfactory for the type of average driving I do for commuting and grocery runs.I can't comment on these tires for snow/icy conditions as I swap out these tires for a true dedicated set of snow tires for...  Read More
