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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I love these tires! I put these on a 2013 Impreza sedan, immediately after I drove off the lot at 11,000 miles. It came with OEM Bridgestones that had 1/3 tread wear, and upon using the on-ramp to drive home, almost immediately broke loose on dry pavement. Next stop was to replace the OEMs with these. Immediately, I was driving an entirely different vehicle,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25 RFT

I bought these for my winter wheels, because living in Pennsylvania we get enough snow in the winter to merit snow tires. I liked the idea of run-flat tires because of possible punctures from ice in wintry conditions wouldn't have an effect on my mobility. I'd been driving in mostly dry and rainy conditions and liked that they didn't give much more road...  Read More

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

At long last, I've found my tire: an ultra high performance all-season tire that optimizes the performance of Audi's Quattro AWD on trips to the mountains, without numbing the car's handling and steering response on the dry roads that dominate daily driving here in LA. I've only had the Michelins a couple weeks, but immediately took them on a 1,000 mile road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I was looking for the Bridgestone Blizzak W80s to put on my Sonata, as I had them previously, but they were out of stock at the time I needed them. Gave these a try, so it's a direct comparison between the two brands.In a nutshell the Michelins are very good, but the Blizzak W80 has them beat on overall snow traction. In moderate snow cover you can almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I recently purchased this set of tires for a second/winter set of wheels for my MX-5. My MX-5 is my year-round daily driver, so having the second set is a necessity. My summer tires are Bridgestone S-04 Pole Positions that came with the car when I purchased it 2 months ago. It was like driving a block of ice on an ice skating rink. So, I had to make a...  Read More

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

I just purchased these tires (only 2 and had them put on the front) about 3 weeks ago (late-Nov 2016). I was driving Friday night in Illinois (Just across the river from St. Louis) and we had freezing rain/drizzle beginning around 3pm. By the time I left from work @ 5pm the roads were fairly icy and traffic was going approx. 25 - 30 mph. What normally takes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

Purchased these tires for my wife's 2008 Toyota Highlander Sport after having gone through 2 winters with the OEM Toyo and Bridgestone Dueller tires (all seasons, which by the way both wore out at 35,000 miles). What a big difference in traction; GREAT in deep Upstate NY snow this year. Tires have thick tread and do very well, even did well on ice....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

What a difference when compared to regular all-season tires. Can't go wrong here.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I live in northern Vermont and frequently drive on unpaved mountainous roads. I can't compare these to other winter tires since I only use Blizzaks in the winter and have been completely satisfied. I slow down and drive the conditions. Ice is my biggest concern as well as road noise. Pros: excel in icy conditions, quiet ride that is comparable to OEM all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I had this tired for about 4 months now and all I can say is they perform extremely well in the dry vs my all season stock tires and even perform well in the wet as well. A lot more grip vs my all season tires but rides a little harsher but that a trade off and can also that I have upgrade coil overs as well. So far they are great tires but I do notice maybe...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

This is the snow tire to get. I'm on my 3rd set of blizzaks and am very happy with them. They performed well in deep snow in the mountains and also gripped very well in slush / ice conditions. I was surprised with how well they resist hydroplaning considering in Seattle the roads often pool water.The WS80 do have a soft sidewall so cornering isn't great but...  Read More

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

The tires were O.E. on my new 2016 VW Golf Sportwagon. When I purchased the car I immediately got larger wheels and summer performance tires, purchased from Tire Rack, which I installed immediately . I swapped them back to the O.E. all-season Bridgestones in early Nov. with the arrival of colder weather. What a huge change for the worse! After driving about...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Tires certainly are a big step over the all seasons. The increase in overall grip is huge, the suspension really has to work to hold on now. My only complaint is a big of mushiness on turn in. That sharp responsiveness to small inputs that first wowed me with this car has been lessened a bit. That being said though, once these tires settle into a corner,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS

The tires were OEM with my Subaru OB. With proper care, as a few people have noted, I've gotten 43K on them, with a 60/40 highway to city driving mix. They are rated to 40k. They are not off-road, or snow tires. They have been for me, a good quality tire and it does what it claims. I'm buying another set to replace them next week. How you drive also, effects...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Driving from Florida to New York State, on PA I-81, hit many potholes in both lanes which I couldn't avoid damaging internally two tires which resulted in loud thumping sound. Decided for safety reasons replacing all four OEM Pirelli's All Season Run Flats with Bridgestone Drive Guard All Season Run Flats. Before having that pothole event those Pirelli's...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

I love to drive in the snow now. I couldn't wait until the first snow fall in Chicago. They don't plow and salt the side streets right away, so it was a great opportunity to test these tires out. These tires perform very well in snow 3-9 or more inches. I have a low profile front end which catches the snow and slows my momentum. But I had confidence that I...  Read More
