Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

Recently purchased these tires and could not be any happier. After always running all-season tires, this is my first pair of dedicated winters. The Maine Winters are some of the country's harshest and so far they have performed exceedingly well. My development's roads were covered in a layer of ice and then we got fresh powder – which can be a nightmarish...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I recently purchased these for my WRX '14. I originally had stock tires that came with the vehicle when I bought it (which are not the greatest in cold weather/light snow/snow/ice/etc). MD recently had some light now in the area and I took the car out to see how things were and immediately found that these tires gripped the road just fine. I never felt that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I bought these tires with little choices left in the middle of the nasty 2013-2014 winter. I got lucky and Tire Rack had a great set of alloy wheels for winter tires....I just couldn't find a tire suitable for my WRX. So I closed my eyes and bought the Winter Maxx. No glowing reviews, in fact only just a couple reviews and somebody saying they aren't that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

Comes OE on 2015 Subaru WRX. I must say though they feel like the best tires i've driven on.. or it could be the car I dunno which. Would definitely recommend to others.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport

I am now on my second set of these tires on my 2005 WRX wagon. Unfortunately I hit a big pothole with my first set and one of them was damaged so I had to replace them prematurely. They were at 7/16ths tread depth and I was on my third summer season with that first set. I just had a new set installed today. I didn't think twice about buying these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is a great tire, but not great for this car and my driving style. I sized this -1 (factory OEM is 17), and in doing so created the majority of my gripes I have with this tire. The size I bought it in has been discontinued.I have been using snows for the past 20 years, and I've tried Blizzaks, Generals, Firestones, Goodyears, Dunlops. I average around 7K...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I've had these tires on my 2013 WRX Hatch for the last 500 miles and they've already seen all 4 seasons being that I live in New York. Although they're meant to be summer tires they've exceeded my expectations in the cold and wet. Not once have I felt like I'm not in control of the car wet or dry. I mostly use my car to commute approx. 40 miles highway...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32

Considering there is 560HP going through a 255 winter tire instead of the usual 285 hi performance summer tire, its obvious that aggressive driving is not going to be the same. But I'm not complaining. Its been snowing in Chicago ever since I put these on. The roads are either a snowy, slushy mess, or wet/ icy, or have a slippery layer of salt the few times...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

I have owned 2 sets of these...first set for a Subaru WRX and now my Nissan Rogue-AWD. We live in the Snow-belt region of NY state above Syracuse on the Tug Hill. As a result we get much snow EVERY winter. These are the BEST snow tires I have ever owned. I have Blizzaks on my AWD car due to the fact I could not get the right size in the Altimax. The Blizzaks...  Read More

Dunlop Direzza ZII Coming Into Stock for the 2014 Season

It seems hard to believe, but sooner or later the cold that has gripped most of the country this winter will soon lift and the snow will clear. When this occurs, competition events will be in full swing. One of last year's hottest and best-selling performers, the Dunlop Direzza ZII, is filtering back into stock, and in many sizes is ready for shipment. This E...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I moved to Colorado in 2010 with my '08 Subaru Impreza WRX. My treads on my OE tires were getting low and winter was coming, so I looked into getting new tires and I found these. Purchasing these tires was the best decision I have ever made. My car always performed well in summer, dry or wet, so I won't talk about the tires performance in those conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01

These tires came with my Subaru WRX 2014. I'm an experience driver and today, it snowed in MD and I can tell you that these tires do absolutely nothing for the car. Sadly, it was only 1/4 of slush/snow on the road. You can drive around with these tires, but do not expect them to give you great braking abilities or handling in snow; engine braking is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Great set of tires, sticks to the road better than the p zero nero's I had on my WRX.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I bought these for my new-to-me WRX the day before a decent snowfall in NYC. I was replacing some quite poor NEXENs. I was amazed at the immediate improvement in tire noise, steering feel and responsiveness. Ride quality increased too. In the 6-10 snow fall we had, the car dealt with it easily, without even the slightest vagueness in steering. As a point of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Over the years, these are the best all-around V-rated tires for the WRX I have used in terms of performance and comfort. Cornering in both dry/wet conditions are superior to similar model tires. Road noise is less than other brands. The only disappointment I have is the tread life. For a tire rated at 560, They are almost due for replacement at less than...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT

These tires were on my WRX when I bought it so I'm not sure of the mileage. The previous owner said they have 1 or 2 seasons left. They are awesome in the snow. I can start from a dead stop in the middle of a 2 foot drift with no wheel spin, stop on ice, drive right over tall snow banks. I've tried to get stuck and failed numerous times. A lot of the credit...  Read More
