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

Actually kind of disappointed with this tire compared to the previous generation Altimax as an all season tire. Winter performance in regards to handling slush is the main complaint due to the change in the tread pattern. Tire wear is also disappointing, I'll be lucky to get 30K before they need replacing.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

This is my first set of General Altimax Arctic winter tires. I had hoped to get the GoodYear Ultra Grip Ice tires which I have had on several vehicles previously and liked them. However, due to a dealership screw up (not Tire Rack), I ended up with the Generals rather than waiting another couple of weeks.In the past 2 weeks we have had several good dumps of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I purchased this tire after the previous Kumho tires had worn completely and had caused ride comfort to be something to be desired for after switching from a soft winter tire set. To be fair the Kumho had lasted about 40k miles.Initial thoughts about the Pirelli All Season Plus is that they ride comfortably, are quiet, provide adequate traction, do not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I really liked these tires for the first 40,000 miles I put on them driving in the city and on the highway. They were very quiet and handled well. Tires were great for the long distance trips (1k each way) we make to Colorado a few times a year. Tires now have about 40k on them and are getting pretty noisy. They look like they will go 60k without a problem...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I want to say that overall, these tires are good. I would recommend them only if you can't afford a better tire for your car. I say this because this model seems to have it all on paper but it doesn't in real life. Nevertheless, this model is a Best Buy, in my opinion for average, non-spirited drivers. I would not recommend this tire for an AWD car like my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

I got these tires to get into autocross. These tires are amzing for an all season type of tire. They are peferct for everyday drivers, all though they arnt all that great when the temperature starts to go down. These tires are great for the occasional autocrosser, if you are a dedicated autocrosser or track day driver, i recomend something better. But, these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

Great tires! I have had these tires on my Volco XC90 , 2 Audi Q7 4.2 L V8, I even put them on my minivan. They have consistently provided great traction. I removed the Continental tires from the Audi and had noticeably better traction and far less road noise.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

Overall these are great tires. They do really well in every condition I have driven in. In had one thing I started to hydroplane really bad but I feel like that was due to driving too fast and a poorly dressing road. My only complaint is the weight of the tires compared to others. It definitely takes arrest from the car's acceleration, braking and fuel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I have the Pirelli Scorpion Verde 107V XL tires. I bought them largely for their good low noise rating. They now have 23k miles on them with prob another 20-25k miles of life left. The first 12k miles were great but now they are super noisy! I wouldn't buy them again!   Read More

Is a Winter Tire & Wheel Package Right for You?

Now that the calendar says “October,” start thinking “winter.” Because before we know it, roofs will be covered with snow, ice rinks will be packed with skaters and roads will strike fear into drivers with dangerous commutes. Well, that is, unless you have the right tires. And the right tires are a set of winter / snow tires. Even better, winter/snow tires i...  Read More

Tire Rack Now Offers Cooper Tires

We often heard “do you carry Cooper tires?” Because of their restrictive distribution agreement, our response was always “no.” That’s all changed. We now offer Cooper’s Cobra Radial G/T performance tires and CS5 and CS3 touring tires, as well as Discover and Evolution truck tires, along with other lines used as Original Equipment on new vehicles. An American...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Riken Raptor ZR

Base model car with no electronic nannies installed. (abs tcs asm)Pretty amazing tire that keeps it low key. A huge difference for my wrong wheel drive corrolla. Open did drag launch, no problem. I'll need a better clutch before i can launch harder. Turning left or right from a dead stop still gives plenty of grip with minimal Spin that is easy to control. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

I was concerned about buying these non Porsche approved tires so I decided to call Porsche and ask how they approve tires and why these are not approved. I didn't get very far as they just said we test tires and then they are approved. Regardless, my concerns were unfounded. My SUV had Continentals that I replaced at 25,000 miles and then I needed new tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

These are summer tires and they are wonderful! They don't do well below 40 degrees. I live in Bucks County Pennsylvania, so I use them April though September - then I change over to the P-Zero Nero all-season alternative. The tires are amazing...take a few minutes to warm them up and experience great performance. IMHO these are the best offering available.A...  Read More

Bridgestone Driveguard Run-Flat Tires Installed on My BMW (First Impressions)

Since 2007, most BMW vehicles began rolling off the assembly line without a spare tire and instead came equipped with run-flat tires. What are run-flat tires? Run-flats tires look and function like standard tires, except that they are designed to allow a driver to continue to drive on them even after losing all air pressure. This means that in most...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I had high hopes and I'm very disappointed.They are pretty good in light snow, I have not had the occasion to try on deep snow or ice. They are ok on dry road but they are DANGEROUS on wet road. I have had several close calls on wet roads because they won't break, lock and slide (I don't have ABS). I drive with Goodyear GT Eagle the rest of the year which...  Read More

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

This is compared to Conti Extreme Contact DWS. After just about half treadlife (the S not worn yet) developed two sidewall bulges on both front tires due to crazy potholes here in the NYC tristate area. The contis were getting a bit noisy anyway - but all season traction could not compare. The Audi quattro with contis performed better in snow then wife's LR3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

Tire has good traction but has a noise level which is extremely loud.Never had tires that produced this amount of noise.I wish they put in the noise cancelling system which Audi required from Pirelli. Review from TireRack video indicated they were very quiet. Would not have bought these if I knew about the sound issue.   Read More

I bought these Pirellis as my fourth set of tires for my truck. The ratings I give for these tires are in comparison to the previous brands I have used. having said that, these are the best-performing tires I have ever driven on and I will continue to use them for as long as I own my truck!   Read More
