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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

I have worn out two sets of these tires in 5 years, my 300 has 200,000 miles on it. I ran them thru all seasons in Wyoming, with a rear wheel drive sedan. 115 miles + per day 5 days a week, rain, sun, and snow. Good mileage impressive handling and ride, survived countless road objects and potholes at 80mph. yes I swear by them. only in last year when the...  Read More

Best All-Season and Snow Tires for Your 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

Does your Jaguar F-TYPE lie parked in the garage during the winter months just begging to be driven? Even a weekend spin is not advisable with sticky summer tires during cold, wintry conditions. The Jaguar F-TYPE is too great a car to store away for months at a time! Performance Winter / Snow tires will give your F-TYPE some grip on cold days and snowy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

I live in Mass, and we have some crazy weather throughout the year, especially during the winter months. I got these tires late Jan. 2016 and have more than 8,000 miles on them so far. Pretty much all of driving is during the week and on the highway. They are great in the snow from a few inches to over a foot, no problem in the rain either. There is a trail...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I sized down from my standard 18 wheels for this winter set and I am so glad I did. Ride comfort was incredibly improved with the 17 inch wheels plus the softer winter compound of this tire. These Michelins are so much quieter then my all season Pirelli P7s that I sort of wish I could drive them year-round. As I've experienced from every winter tire I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is basically the only tire that should be put on a high horsepower, rear wheel drive sports car that needs to be driven in the winter and especially in the snow. For 20 years I purchased nothing but Pirelli P-Zero tires and I always wondered why my rear wheel drive cars ----ed in the snow. The reason why is that those are summer only tires. They also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just finished my first season on the Michelin X-ICE3's, in West Michigan, and was very pleased. 2015/16 was a mild winter for us, but still plenty of opportunities to try out the grip of these tires in snow, slush, and ice. I drive my manual-transmission rear-wheel-drive Chevy SS sedan in a spirited manner from time to time when conditions allow, but I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I purchased a set of four of these tires for my 2005 S2000, a rear wheel drive performance sports car. They were mounted on wheels for the 2003 model year, as snow tires are not available for the larger 2005 model year wheels. The tires were 205/55TR16 in the front and 225/50TR16 in the rear.The tires were amazing in snow. Light snow on reasonably...  Read More

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

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental WinterContact SI

Cont'd from March 18, 2016...My subjective opinion is they really don't cause you more money. As a matter of fact, except for the hassle of swapping wheels and tires (in my case), it is a concept of conservation of tread life, like having a second pair of shoes. You get to wear each pair (first and second pairs) for a longer time-wise. In fact, I also feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I bought these Blizzaks early last winter because the stock BFG MT T/As were greasier than I liked on snow, and I'm glad I did. I just finished my first season with them. They are very good on dry pavement (which we have most of the time even in winter here), and outstanding in snow, ice, or slush. We live on a steep hill and I had no problems coming up in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

Have these tires on a dedicated 17inch steel wheel. Did not notice any difference in ride from the OEM 20 inch on Goodyears. Noise is a little louder than a all season tire due to having them studded at 0-30mph. Anything over 30mph and you cant hear the studs anymore. Tires do exceptionally well in deep snow. Pulled out a mini cooper in 20inches of fresh...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber AT 2

Initially this tire was great! After first rotation @ 5000 miles, the tires began a balancing issue. Found out two of my four are out of round and it takes a bunch of weight to balance them. This will never get any better on this set. It is a great tire in light snow and ice conditions if driven properly. I would use this tire in the future on a serparate...  Read More

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

About 3 years ago I ordered new 15 inch wheels and tires here on Tire Rack due to limited stock tire choices. The Michelin Defenders were excellent, but after 70,000 miles, I decided to get new tires for up coming the winter. Since the Fit has a pretty hard ride, I was looking for a comfortable tire with good wear ratings. I love the old Altimax tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I purchased a set of these in 285/70-R17 on 17x8.5 wheels to replace the OEM wheels on my truck. The truck is otherwise stock and there is no rubbing at all over bumps or at steering extents. Most of my driving is highway or rough back roads and a bit offroad. So far I am quite impressed with this tire.It has excellent hydroplane resistance (tested in a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

I have to say these tiers Rocked it this winter. They were on a Macan as my winter tire and they preformed in every condition. I purchased the full tire/rim combo from Tire rack and it was easy. I had them shipped to a recommended Tire Rack installer and he came by to put them on in my driveway. It was a great experience. I went smaller with 18 vs 20 for the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I purchased these snow tires while living in Lake City, Florida. Needless to say, I got some really funny remarks when ordering/having them mounted. However, they were bought because we were moving to Upper Michigan (Marquette area), where we get TONS of snow. Most people thought we were crazy for buying them when we did (around the middle of March), because...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

I still cannot believe that after 23,000 miles on these tires, I have 6/32 of tread left. Grip is still unchanged. WRX is a grippy, all wheel drive car, so that probably enhances and biases experience, but I still think these tires are awesome.I cannot believe the treadlife given that these tires max summer tires. I did not take the car to the track, but I...  Read More
