Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

With only having 1200 miles on them the overall wear question is still a unknown. Traction in all conditions has been very good. If pushed in a dry corner at hwy speeds I do experience more understeer/drift then the factory All season tires. Braking on ice/snow is excellent. Noise on grooved pavement can be moderate as is chasing the grooves.The colder the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

Just picked these up as a year-round, all-weather tire for our AWD Tiguan. We'll be using this car primarily in the winter, so I was specifically looking for a severe winter service rated all-season alternative to dedicated snows paired with high performance all-seasons on separate wheels. We just aren't going to see enough miles on this car to warrant 2...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady

Good, quiet tire that has the snow traction I was hoping for. I've used all-season tires before with less than stellar results in FWD vehicles, but these live up to their promise. Snow or ice, they're providing excellent traction. Dry roads they run smooth and silent. Highly recommend.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination A/T

I bought these tires from the Tire Rack on 10/6/15 with 83,000 miles on my truck.Previously I went through 2 sets of Goodrich RuggedTrail T/As which I liked. I bought these as they were a great price, had good reviews and thought I¿d try something different while saving $100s.I am a true car guy and back yard mechanic. I take good care of my vehicles and I...  Read More

Tough to Decide? This Winter, Use Tire Rack's Tire Decision Guide.

It’s time. The winter slip and slide. And since you can’t sit winter out curled up by the fireplace sipping hot “cocoa,” you’re just going to have to get your tires right. Once you’ve driven on winter tires, you won’t feel the need to stay close to home and you won’t go back to an all-season tire in the winter ever again. We call it the “Ah-Ha Moment.” It’s...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I'd like to start this review off by saying I hate when people review a tire when they haven't gone through the months, miles, and seasons first. 10,000 miles or less isn't even note-worthy of a review. stop wasting our time with these lame reviews!Now, back to my review after a current 26,000 miles and 2+ years worth of driving through ALL conditions here...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The only thing that saves this tire from being immediately replaced is my all wheel drive. I couldn't imagine this tire on a 2wd. It's terrible in the wet and snow and I have drivin through every kind of weather imaginable. In every vehicle You can think of. I am glad I didn't buy these as they are my OE tire on my vehicle.   Read More

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

Now that I've had these tires for nearly a full year, I'm impressed! They're ability to perform at high levels in all kinds of weather, especially wet is amazing. These tires best perform at 34psi on the rear and 36 psi on the front. The grip for launches, steering response cornering haven't changed after 7 autocross events that have 6 runs at each event....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

I have been a Michelin PSS fan for some time now. My M2 came with Contis which I replaced with the 4Ss right after the break-in. Given the M2 was a big step up from my 335is in regards to performance, and running wider tire sizes. It is hard to give good feedback comparing them to the PSS. I can at least say I feel this is the best all around street tire you...  Read More

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

I had the original stock continental run flats that BMW (for some reason) puts on their cars. Because the tire is so hard it made the ride a little to hard and i felt every little bump in the road. I ended up having to replace the tires due to a bubble developing on the sidewall of one of the tires. And i chose to go with the Michelin pilot sport a/s 3...  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 Kumho Crugen HT51

These tires are a bargain. They are great in all weather conditions, are fuel efficient, wear well, handle well, and are quiet.   Read More

You Can Run But You Can't Hide From Mother Nature

Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow or your vehicle comes equipped with summer tires from the factory, you should strongly consider installing winter tires. Dedicated snow tires will enhance an all-wheel drive vehicle's winter capability, make an intrinsically "bad-in-snow" car better and...  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

These tires were on the car when I purchased it Dec 2016.The...  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 Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

Purchased these tires for autocross and road racing on my Abarth 500. Recommended by the Tirerack associate and many other forums/websites for multiple light sport cars of all kinds of power-trains. Mostly RWD Miatas, BRZs and mid engine Boxsters ,MR2s, FWD Civic SIs ,and tons of German sport cars.I am amazed how well these tires are. I have attended 3...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk AS

These replaced the Bridgestone Ecopia tires I had on my Mazda 3. Overall this was a massive improvement. These tires are very quiet by comparison, and maybe the most quiet tires I've ever used. They really perform predictably on the road and provide excellent handling. The grip around corners is superior and I can make many turns now that would cause my...  Read More
