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

I took off my winter tires and put these back on in April. They handle great and give a very smooth quite ride. They are fun on the off ramps and the cornering and steering response are great. They also do very good in the rain , we have had a very wet spring.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

My truck is back.... The old factory Oem Goodyear wrangler sa's were not all that bad. But after 40k miles they were loud, wearing out, and made my expedition ride extremely rough. These tires are not cheap. But if you are reading this you know enough to understand that you are looking into a premium tire for your truck. These michelins are worth the price...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

I'll start off by saying that this is a great tire. Im located in Seattle Washington and these tires handle the rain very well and they handle great in the snow. I go back and fourth between the city and the pass every weekend in the winter and these tires handle snow and rain like a champ.Wether it be packed snow on the freeway or 6 inches of fresh snow on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I up grated my wheels from stock 16 wheels to 17 '04 STI BBS wheels. I was driving on Continental DWS. They were great tires and I have bumped them as my reserve winter tire, not much snow in Alabama but just in case. I have yet to test the tires in the wet as it has not rained thus NA atm. Will update when I get the opportunity. I was debating between these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (H- or V-Speed Rated)

After buying them in Jan. 2014, I've been trying to be more attentive about them--pressure, alignment, etc. 45K later, they still have 7/32 left in April 2016. After finding out that Tire Rack existed and reading reviews on them, it was nice to see I inadvertently bought a higher quality tire. I've read other peoples reviews about them wearing out quickly,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

There is not enough to say about these tires, this is the tire you should buy. I drive on the highway 5days a week for work and try to spend as much time as I can outdoors on the weekends. Tires are quiet on the highway, but with the quality of a Ford Escape, you're still going to hear road noise. My use on the weekends would involve fishing, hunting,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I spent several weeks researching tires. This 9-3 came with ContiSportContacts which were also the OE tire. I wanted to upgrade to an Ultra High Performance All Season from those Grand Touring OE boots.Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 were my first choice due to their reviews/reputation. However, Michelin was the only tire company without a rebate right now....  Read More

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

This is my first experience with these General RT43 tires, but not my first experience with Continental(as the manufacturer)tires because I've owned their DWS series, previous to this vehicle. Dollar for dollar, That may have been one of the best tires I've evr owned, so having driven that tire in a cuple of winters, I also decided to wait a few months to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX Winter

I live in southern Oregon. Not a lot of snow, maybe three storms of 5-8 inches a year. But we live on the northern exposure of a deeply forested hill that keeps snow for a week or two, often getting rained on. The last 300 feet of drive way is at least 12% grade. I found that these tires would often climb the road in 2wd, when even walking on the road is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I changed out the factory run flats on our X6 almost immediately as it came with high performance summer tires (I will never understand that for cars going to snow prone areas). I didn't want to sacrifice performance for winter capability and I didn't want two sets of tires (though I understand the argument). I only had one other experience with Conti's and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Good for NJ Winter. I have an Acura TSX. Bought these tires on a suggestion from a friend and after reading all the positive reviews. Didn't want to invest in snows/rims but looking for something that would make me feel more secure when driving my 18 miles to work every day.These tires have made a huge difference when driving in the snow. I love them! I live...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I bought these for $288 for 4 shipped to my door. These are great winter tires, the tires on my wife's 13 CRV were getting a little slick(less than 20k OEM tires, go figure). I am glad that I bought these tires as we have seen over 80 at my house this winter. My favorite thing about these winter tires is that I forget that they are winter tires. That is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-11

I do drive city mostly due to my retirement and age--83, but the city street corners are taken well within the handling ability of the R32 and my enjoyment level of owning the best sports car I have ever driven. Local on and off ramps of our interconnecting interstate roads are vigorously attacked and enjoyed with the RE11s-no loss in confidence, whether wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I drove these all winter and I only had one occasion to lose traction. I was leaving a stop light and wasn't aware of how slick the road had become. Stopped well but when I left, I spun the tires as I started. Never did I feel like the tires would lose traction on the highway. Noise level was elevated compared to the Goodyear RS-A that are OEM. Steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I love these tire but I have a cupping issue on the rears only. I have different sizes front and back so rotating is not an option. That being said the car is not drive a lot during the summer and almost never in the winter ( I have snow tires for winter driving). The alignment is almost perfect so I am not yet convinced about wear.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

I use these only during spring through fall, and put on four Blizzaks for the winter. With only 6500 miles so far I'm not sure I can accurately address the durability/tread life of the tires, but generally speaking I'm pleased with them. They seem to have plenty of grip in both wet and dry conditions though I tend to spin one wheel very slightly (I don't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I wanted a reliable set of winter tires, as soon as I had bought my rear wheel drive MB. I drive a lot, mostly highway, on I94 and I90 between Ontario and Minnesota, crossing Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. I have to admit, these tires have performed beyond my expectations for winter tire experience on other brands in my prior cars. I have been...  Read More
