Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

Put these on about a thousand miles ago to replace the OEM Bridgestone Dueler that had about 26,000 on them. They had approx. 10,000 left but there was some dry rotting around tread and a noticeable decrease in performance during inclement weather. Had a gouge from the side wall in the spare so decided to just replace all the tires and did not want to go...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Low mileage so far but we had 70 degrees in February, followed by 10 inches of snow and some icy conditions then rain. Theses P7s handled everything very well. In fact In the snow they seemed as good as the Continental Winter Contacts they replaced but with a much quieter well balanced ride. My Jetta Sportwagon has no sport in it's handling demeanor but the...  Read More

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

I looked long and hard about 3-4 years ago for a new set of shoes for my 2010 Infinite M35X, and thought these looked like the best bang for the buck...and I have not been disappointed. They only allowed me to rate myself as spirited, but it was a lot closer to psychotic with delusions of grandeur that he's speed racer in his old man car before I started...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

This is my second set of these tires on 2 different cars. The first was an AWD Volvo wagon and they were fantastic in all weather. This is my second set this time on a nearly new Mazda 6. The Mazda 6 comes with hard riding noisy Dunlop tires. At 18000 miles I hit some road debris and damaged 2 beyond repair. I insist on 4 matching tires so my choices were to...  Read More

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

Given the reviews here, I was expecting a major improvement on the stock Dunlop tires for my Mazda. I wasn't disappointed. These should definitely be broken in before you consider doing a lot of hard driving. The tread blocks are pretty deep, so it will feel a little squirmy for a while.These BFGs have very strong dry grip. Sometimes there's a little initial...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

If you want the best tire for the average driver, this tire Brand and Model has no equal. It is supremely quiet and silky smooth and has great braking (stopping) ability. For some reason when Michelin started to built these tires back in about 2008 or thereabouts they got everything right. You really can't ask more out of a tire than these. The only place...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I have roughly 5,000 miles on these tires over the course of 5 months, on all road types (excluding gravel). I love them.I drive extremely aggressively and they are the best tires I've put on my Camaro to date, far better than the factory Pirelli's. More grip both lateral and in a straight line, much better in wet/cold conditions, tough and resistant to road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce

South Western VA Can see some crazy weather..not as bad as other places but these mountains are unpredictable. we honestly Never know what's gonna happen, so that's why I use snow tires..I purchased these tires in 2015. We had regular snows in January, up until Jonas, and another big snow in February. After taking them off for summer, we had a crazy snow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

60,000 miles of city/highway driving and still going strong. We see all weather conditions here in SEPA and these tires have never broken traction. I have Destination T/As on my truck and love them too. Highly recommend, will purchase again but I expect to get another 10-15k out if this set.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

We just got back from a 2300 mile trip from Nevada to Arizona and into California. This tire brought back smooth riding into the Durango. My previous tire was Dunlop AT20's which left a lot to be desired. This tire has encountered heavy rainfall, heavy snowfall, black ice, ice under fresh powder snow and near 0 degree temperatures. Please note this is not a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

New tires are a tremendous improvement over the OEMs although I have to admit that I've lost 2-3 mpg with these tires. I'll take it for the responsiveness and handling that I gained over the OEMs. Hybrid is a tough car to buy tires for. With electric motor, I more often than not spin tires at stop sign or red light. I've learned to ease into forward motion...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I've had these tires for about a month. I live in the Pacific Northwest and in the last month, we have had below freezing weather (icy roads), heavy rain, 8 of snow (rare for us), and slush. These Defenders did great in all these conditions - even on hills in the snow. AWD helps but I doubt the stock OEM Goodyear Forteras would have performed the same. I had...  Read More

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

Let me start off by saying these are performance tires so expect a slight trade off in ride comfort/noise over a touring tire. With that said, these tires grip like crazy! I usually only buy two tires at a time so I am still running the stock Michelin Primacy tires in the rear. The car is so much more playful than before and reacts so quickly to steering...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I had a set of Nokian WR G3 SUV tires on my previous Subaru and while they gave me great winter performance they were very loud and pretty rough. When I bought the Outback I knew I wanted to replace the factory Bridgestones with something better and I debated about going with a dedicated winter tire but I just didn't want to mess with having to swap tires,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Bought the 2012 Lexus ES 350 new. Its is common knowledge that the OEMs wear out fairly quickly. Relocated to south Florida and installed the Michelin Premiers - what a difference! I am a car guy but tires where near a major factor as don't change tires often so hard to really compare. The difference between the OEM Bridgestones to Michelins is night and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

A winter/snow/ice tire is not the general purchase of a south Texas driver but after rolling my previous vehicle 2 years ago in an ice event in Colorado my wife insisted that I purchase some dedicated winter tires if we drove out to Colorado again. All I can say is thanks for the missus being so insistent. I purchased a set of these tires for our 2015 Subaru...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I drive a 2012 Audi S4 and the tires given to me from the dealership I originally bought the car from were Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position All Seasons. Those tires were very noisy while driving had decent grip in dry and wet conditions but were AWFUL in the snow. I repeat AWFUL in the snow one slight tap on the brakes in light snow and you were skidding...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

I bought a set of General Grabber HTS' about two months ago. They are exactly what I wanted on this vehicle -- a good value, great in rain and snow, and acceptable for dry-weather driving. I've already taken two trips of around 500 miles and each time had opportunities to run them in snow. On an all-wheel-drive SUV I had no problems in up to 6 or 8 inches of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Big fan of Tire Rack, since 1997 every single tire we have purchased has been from Tire Rack. NOW onto the tire review. WOW! Amazing how this tire performs! We've had mixed snow, rain, and some dry road surface condition. The last set of tires we had, more or less took a dive due to control arms and out tie rod ends needing to be replaced and a 4 way...  Read More
