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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

The tires are truly a very good tire. That was one of the biggest reasons that I got the Blizzak WS70 and the price was extremely affordable. The reviews compared to other tires were not even close to these brand for the winter. And other people and reviews I read I really didn't hear anything bad about them except for that I would be extremely happy with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I bought a set of four of these tires for my 2014 Cruze. These tires have been the best investment I have made. Recently we encountered a horrible ice storm in Pittsbugh and I had to drive to work. These tires saved my life. I was able to drive on black ice in my car and maintain control around bends, down hills, and up hills. To give you an idea how bad...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

First thing first, I,,replaced the O.E.tires(Bridgestone Dueler),that came with my vehicle when I purchased it. Those tires were not going to survive winter driving conditions.Regardless of your all-wheel-drive system, the most important factor in poor driving conditions, is tire traction.I, previously had excellent experience with Continental A/S DWS, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

These tires are exceptionally sure-footed in every winter situation they have faced already: ice, slush, sleet, rain, light and deeper (about 8) snow as well as dry but cold roads both paved and gravel. They are not noisy on the road. Still need to use sensible, safe driving practices but these tires afford an extra margin of safety when weather conditions...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

This is my first set of winter tires on this car, and my first set of studless winter tires. On previous vehicles, I used studdable winter tires such as the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 1 and the Firestone Winterforce. While those performed fine in winter conditions, they were definitely noisy and rough riding. Not so with the Blizzaks. The ride is smooth and while...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these tires for my lady friend's AWD FX45. This car splits its time between New Jersey and Vermont, and traverses between the two every winter. I drive the car frequently. They are terrific tires on the Interstate and on local roads, both paved and unpaved. I am not consciously aware that I am on snow tires when driving on dry roads, but in snow,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II Run Flat

This is the best winter tire I have ever driven on. The steering responsiveness isn't quite as good as my summer tires, but I believe that is due to the smaller treadblocks and the nature of the winter rubber compound. I only notice the change in steering responsiveness when switching back to my summer rubber. I use these tires on a RWD car in Chicago and...  Read More

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

So far, So good. I guess we'll find out how they do this winter. 10X better than the goodyear's that where on it.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

Love it and hate it. I have been using Blizzak tires on my vehicles every winter for the past 20 years and have always been impressed with their performance under adverse conditions. They deliver as promised. However, there is a downside. Two issues in particular. Road noise is quite noticeable even when new, but increases significantly as the tread wears...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG20

My second winter season for these tires. Zero problems. A front wheel drive car with real snow tires is by far the most economical car for winter. the price of a dedicated set of snow tires is around $600 dollars . Compared to the cost of collision repairs and possible injury, a no brainer.   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 Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Any one that has driven in snow and bad winter weather with these tires will tell you there is no equal. No All-Season tire can match or even come close. They are surprisingly quiet and give a very smooth ride. The traction gives you the feeling that you are glued to the road. The only down side to these tires is they wear faster than an All-Season and will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge Run Flat

Have these tires on BMW X5 50i and could not be happier. Tires have excellent winter traction and provide a smooth, quiet ride...Got a real test in recent Michigan winter storm. Lots of vehicles in the ditch and the X5 never broke loose on the ice covered roads. Very impressive tire just wish the prices would come down a little. Oh well, I would rather know...  Read More

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
