Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

I have been quite happy with this tire purchase. These Quatrac 5 were purchaces to replace a set Goodyear Integrity. There isn't much that's going to make it 20-year-old Camry sporty, but these tires have noticeably improved its handling. Overall grip and confidence is up on on both wet and dry roads; response and predictable are very good and in corners...  Read More

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

I replaced the OEM tire on my 3.2 Q5 S-Line and couldn't be happier! These tires have exceeded my expectations in every way! I have not driven them in snow as I live in the south and have not had them through a hard winter but they have been great in every other area. Inspiring confidence in all conditions. I have seen some people rate them poorly for rain...  Read More

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

Bought these to replace some Bridgestone 960ASs; they were some great tires so I was loath to replace them. At 4/32 I didn't have much choice though. I am happy to report that, thus far, the Michelins are living up to all the hype. I haven't driven through a winter yet so I can't comment on ice or snow. In the wet they are pretty good though I still get some...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX A/T 2

I had 2 sets of the original LTX A/T's. They were by far the best tire I ever owned. The OEM Goodyear AT/S tires lasted 67,000 miles on this truck so I was tempted, but the tread design was horrible, so I relied on my history with LTX's and bought these A/T2's. I bought them 6 months ago and have had a vibration from day 1. Had them rebalanced twice since...  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

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

Truck Tires: Off-Road Tires and Mud Tires / Mudding Tires Versus All-Terrain Tires

If you have a truck or rugged SUV that you often drive off of the beaten path, then you should consider using tires that are more aggressive than standard Highway All-Season tires or Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tires. How much more aggressive do should you consider? That depends on how much off-road driving you'll be doing and how severe your...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

Bought these tires based on wet performance reviews. South Florida climate demands good wet and dry traction, and these tires deliver. I also wanted a smooth, quiet ride for the Town Car, and BONUS! these were also highly rated for comfort. Much more quiet and smooth than the Goodyear tires they replaced, MUCH longer tread life, far better traction...  Read More

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

With a combination of highway daily driving and backroad traveling I HIGHLY recommend these tires as a replacement for the Goodyears that came on the car new. I destroyed the first set within the first 7000 miles. No, they do not grip quite as well as the highly focused Goodyears that came on the car, however, the slight amount of grip given up is well worth...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Just got pre-owned 2015 BMW 640xi Gran Sport with 5,000 miles. Came with original Eagle run flat tires. These tires have an awful reputation and my previous experience with OEM Goodyear Eagle tires of all types has been very negative- poor wear, no mileage warranty and noisy. Did a lot of research and discovered the Bridgestone Drive Guard Grand Touring Run...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Have run these about 1,000-1,500 miles since mounting them about a month ago. Exceptional tires. They replaced the daily a/s tires (Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric) I had on my car's 19-inch Cadiz wheels for the previous 40k miles. I also have a set of Pilot Super Sports for track. Far and away these tires are better so far than both of the others. Versus the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Thanks to TireRack reviews and ratings, these quickly replaced the OEM BFG Radial Long Trails on my Xterra, tires that I previously described as providing irresponsible. (I stand by that assessment.)After the first 15,000 miles or so, I thought the Adventurer All-Terrains had done a fine job—not exceptional, but fine. In fact (and it pains me admit this),...  Read More

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

Brand new set of 4 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus 215/55 R17 as of May 10, 2017 installed on our 2014 Nissan Juke SV. We will periodically update our review as the miles add on. These tires replaced OEM Goodyear RS-A that lasted 51,000 miles. We were looking for a tire with a better warranty, improved wet performance for our Florida living, and a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

After a lot of thought and looking at reviews I decided to replace the tires I had on my Audi it came with Goodyear's. The price for those tires was like 198.00. I looked around for a good high performance summer tire and these BF Goodrich tires looked like they fit the bill. The only thing that worried me was they said that under 50 mph there was road noise...  Read More

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

I now know how the other half live! What an incredible difference. I bought these to replace the OEM equipped Goodyear Eagles, which were acceptable in most driving conditions, but brutal in winter. I started to wonder if it was the car. Nope, definitely the tires! It is not surprising to roll off the driveway and onto a snow covered road in our development...  Read More

Is the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 the Best All-Season or All-Terrain Tire for Snow Traction?

If you've experienced driving through a tough winter season on a top-tier winter tire like the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV-2, you'd agree that a set of dedicated winter tires offer the best traction in snow and on ice. If you are one who doesn't agree with this statement, take a look at "Do Winter/Snow Tires Really Make a Difference?" Winter tires should be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Purchased the MXM4 to replace the oem Goodyear LS that came with TLX V6 AWD - the Goodyear is a very poor choice for this car, shame on Acura for this decision. I was looking for luxury level performance, and the MXM4 delivers without question. Quiet, smooth, dampens road jolts and bumps extremely well. Handling is not sport-level, but is a significant...  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 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
