Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiCrossContact Winter

Bought these tires just in time for the snow in Europe. Driven 11,000 miles in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria in various snow and ice conditions including crossing through the Alps from Germany to Austria. The all-wheel drive on the Audi definitely helps, but I'm very impressed. These tires also handle much better than the Blizzaks I ran for the previous...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I spent way too long looking at winter tire options, and tireracks' website was by far the most useful.Regarding the Winter Maxx, I liked the reports of good tread wear and general all-round high marks for this tire, combined with the price. (There was a rebate going on.) I purchased the tires with new black steel wheels and had them mounted/balanced by...  Read More

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 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 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Very impressed, I bought these tires so i did not have to change out from a summer tire to a winter one and the reputation of the previous generation of BFG AT's. I drive a combination of Canadian 2wd Highway commute, 6x12 dirt bike trailer pulling and 4wd trail driving with the trailer with a Nissan X Terra 6M Off Road. These tires have exceeded my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

These tires brought back the confidence in driving this four wheel drive vehicle in winter. The original tires were quite worn when I got the vehicle and slipped a lot. Made it safe to drive and the treadwear looks acceptable.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

I have the 31x10.5x15 on my stock 2004 Jeep Wrangler 4.0. They replaced the stock Goodyear wrangler SR-A tires. These were put on right before a snowstorm that dumped 10 of snow and they handled it perfectly. I had it in two wheel drive to test how they handled and in normal driving w/ about 3 of unplowed snow on the roads I had to really push it to get the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I Daily Drive C5 Corvette all year in Michigan. I drove the car to the airport on un-plowed roads at 4:00AM Feb 2 and made it all the way - That was 13 of the worst snow storm we've had here since 1974. I stayed in the 2track paths of 4x4 trucks mostly - but this was still deep enough you could feel the snow dragging on the bottom of the car for the 25 or so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Got these in November 2014 for winter driving. I live in the mountains and the twisty roads don't always get the attention they need when it snows. After installing them I was impressed with the smoothness of the ride. They do make more noise then a road tire but that's to be expected because they are snow tires. I felt they over steered in the corners and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

For the amount of miles on these tires I am very pleased with their overall performance. I live and play in snow country, northern Wisconsin and UP of Michigan, these tires have tracked through snow that all season tires on a front wheel drive car would never go!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

I purchased my AWD Acura TLX in January. I have driven the tires in all conditions including light snow, heavy snow, greasy wet snow, packed snow, dry roads, and wet roads. Based on the reviews I read, I expected the worst. I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance. With that being said, I know Acura's excellent AWD system, the TLX's sound...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I bought these after struggling through my first winter when I bought my vehicle brand new. It had kuhmo tires and they were horrible in the winter. These tires are amazing, making me happy with my vehicle again. Driving with these in the winter in the Midwest has been a joy. We've had several feet of snow and you wouldn't know my vehicle is only front wheel...  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 Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II

Admittedly this is the first sports car I've owned so I can't compare to other tires. Bought my car two months ago and immediately put these on for the NY winter. Combined with all wheel drive the traction overall is amazing.I went with these performance winter tires vice the regular ones because although there is plenty of snow here, the majority of...  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 Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

I am sure glad I read Tire Racks' guide to choosing winter tires before buying; and ignored some salepersons recommendations. This tire/wheel combo worked very well both in warm Florida weather, the trip there and back, and here in Central New York state in this very bad winter. I will be able to use these for the next several winter seasons. Sven Ratsep   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

I replaced a set of Firestone Destination LE (not II) that had lasted about 35,000 mi. In comparison, these tires were orders of magnitude quieter. They are great on dry roads, I have had to make a few emergency stops and have felt quite confident in their performance. Quick starts on wet roadways result in absolutely no wheel slippage (partially attributed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero

ROCK STAR TIRES! I live in Pittsburgh, PA and could not review these tires until now since this winter really nothing until February....Formerly had 4 Michelin Alpin snow tires and they no longer make them to fit my Caddy. WHO CARES! No contest - these Pirellis were unbelievable and had my rear wheel drive right out of my steep driveway without my traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

I was not a believer in snow tires. Every year I had a problem going up a hill to my house. Many times I had to park at the bottom and walk home. I gave in and bought a set of snow tires. (I had a harder time believing I need 4 instead of 2!) WOW! What a difference. I went up the hill in the heaviest snow. I live in upstate NY and we had a wild winter. I...  Read More
