Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02

These came OEM on my Camry and will definitely not be replaced. Undriveable in the winter with even minimal snow, uncomfortable to drive when it rains, and make more noise than my snow tires. At 20,000 miles they're pretty much worn out, I wouldn't be able to finish the summer on them. Looking for a dedicated summer performance tire to rotate with my snows.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-Season

OE on the Mustang; just taken off for winter tires. Overall, i was impressed with the dry weather traction--enough stick to make the car fun to drive without a harsh ride. Steering response feels good. Downside was noise level--the Blizzak snows were actually a bit quieterOverall a decent tire for the Mustang Ecoboost--no experience in snow; wet weather...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Snowcontrol Serie 3

Obviously not many miles yet. Today, I was out and about while a winter storm was beginning. It was cold out, so the snow was light and fluffy, not wet snow. With maybe an inch or two of snow, compacted in some areas, traction from a standing start was OK. Even with throttle modulation, there was some wheel slip invoking the stability/traction control. Even...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

Nice price, and smooth ride but mushy in the corners. It is a more comfortable ride than my Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus, but much softer sidewalls, and cornering is definitely affected. But with potholes in Kentucky chewing up and spitting out my Michelins, (now out of production), I needed a more economical choice. We'll see how it handles snow this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

I bought these tires for my '13 Wrangler, that I regularly abuse on the trails, in addition to daily driving. On dry streets, they're comfortable and quiet. On the rocks, they have plenty of grip to get me where I need to go. In the mud, they respond better than one could expect from all-terrains. No, they're not mud tires, but they do still have some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've just finished my second winter season with these tires and I couldn't be happier. I bought these because the winter before, I had driven on all season tires and had a lot of trouble getting up the hill going out of my neighborhood - one day I couldn't make it up the hill and had to stay home from work. It wasn't any fun driving down the major roads,...  Read More

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 Winter Slalom KSI

I took a chance on these as I have always purchased Blizzaks for winter. These are on par with those as far as winter performance at a lower price point. Where I've really noticed the difference though, is in the tread wear. If properly rotated, these tread blocks seem to have lasted much longer than the Blizzaks for comparable driving. I wouldn't hesitate...  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 General AltiMAX RT43 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I purchased these tires to replace some balding Radar RPX900 tires on my corolla wagon. With the worn tires, there was a humming noise I kept hearing, which lead me to believe that it was the wheel bearings. Also, traction on the old tires were pretty much gone. As soon as I put on these new General AltiMAX RT43 tires on, it was like had been given a new...  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 Kumho Ecsta 4X II

While I have just recently had the tires installed I have found them to be very good and better than the Continentals that came with the car. So far all aspects of the tire have been better that the original tires and I would not hesitate to purchase them again. I did have a minor vibration issue and found that the shop that installed the tires did not...  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
