Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

I was a little surprised at how many miles I had put on these tires. Overall I've been pretty happy with them, however one tire never seemed to have quite the same grip as the other three and is now getting down around 1-2/32nds, while the other three are around 3-4/32nds. They did great in some heavy snow in the St. Louis area, pulling my civic through plow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Outstanding winter tire. Very secure traction in snow and ice, and good handling. Remarquably quiet for such an aggressive tread. Holds up well in 90F temperatures (snow bird) and off road, and wears well. Ours were Swedish designed and German made, perhaps that is why they are so good. Also fitted to our Honda Civic.   Read More

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

I'm one of those customers that always does his research and homework before making a large purchase. I read multiple reviews about these tires before I decided on these. I've had my 2011 Honda Civic now for two years and I will just say that these tires made my car feel brand new. I've bought tires before for other cars but I saw an almost instant...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

This tire is sold as an all season tire, but it really isn't met to see a lot of snow. It's supposed to be a sporty tire for luxury sport coupes, etc. I have Honda Fit wheels on my civic and unfortunately when I went looking for a summer tires (I have winter tires on my other set of rims), there weren't any in the oem size that I wanted. I purchased these,...  Read More

Best All-Season Tires for the Honda Civic

If you're the owner of a newer Honda Civc, then you probably already know that the Original Equipment tiresare tuned for a quiet and soft ride. However, they're not among the best choices for all-season traction in wet and snowy conditions. While it is great to have the best tires, many drivers prefer to have affordable tires that represent a good value for...  Read More

Review of Winter Tires for a Honda Civic

In "Best Winter Tires for Honda Civic" I discussed outfitting my 2014 Honda Civic Si with Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 winter tires and Sparco Terra wheels in preparation for the upcoming winter months. After our initial blast of winter in October and November, I really haven't had a chance to try this tire in a real-world winter environment, outside of our in-...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I have these tires installed on my 450whp EVO X for the harsh wyoming winters. I have taken these tires into some pretty extreme snow storms and I have had no problems. Driving on ice/snow is just as easy as driving on dry pavement. While everyone is sliding threw stoplights and what not I have absolutely no problems. I drive very aggressively and I fly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

These tires replaced the original equipment manufacturer Firestone Affinity tires on this vehicle. The Firestone's had 2 of the rear tires experiencing some belt separation problems, including excessive premature edge wear issues at 20,581 miles for a tire that has a tread wear warranty of 50,000 miles. The original equipment tires were rotated every 5,000...  Read More

Best Winter Tires for Honda Civic

One might wonder how a Tire Rack sales specialist searches for a Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package for their own vehicle. I drive a 2014 Honda Civic Si and will be putting new tires and wheels on it this winter. Deciding on what to purchase is tough, even for someone who is always #thinkingabouttires.   The first thing to do is to search by your vehicle's year...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Our 2013 Honda Accord Sedan with the Sport Trim Pkg comes with either Goodyear Eagle RS-A2or Michelin Primacy MXM4. My experience with the Goodyear Eagle RS has been very disappointing and it took my dealer a week to find a 2013 Accord Sport with Michelin Primacy MXM4 on it from the factory. We have a 2009 Civic EX with the Goodyear above on it as it came...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeWinterContact

Went from Ontario to Florida with them on. I was worried that the tread would wear faster in the heat of the south during the two weeks. I checked the tread depth and didn't notice. Handled the I75 fine through snow, rain and wind. I only mention wind because road to tire to steering wheel can make a difference when controlling you vehicle.I plan on buying...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

Ok so here is my story...much of like the previous CR-V owners, the stock tires, whether the Dueler's or the Continentals...don't really satisfy the driver or the car. I was stuck with the Dueler's last winter, and instead decided to drive my Honda Civic in the snow. I stretched out the life of my Dueler's to about 28,500 miles. Since then, about November...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

Second set of these tires I've had. The first set was on a 1999 Saturn SL2, and now on my 2001 Honda Civic. Because I bought my civic late in the season, I thought I would try and run on the all-season tires that were on it, until I almost didn't make it up the hill from work to get home.These tires are awesome in the snow! I could take the Saturn, and now...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

In general I thought these were good tires. I kept them for about 60,000 miles before finally replacing them. The first couple of years they were quite comfortable with respect to noise but in towards the end of their life became unbearably loud. They performed pretty well on dry pavement (for a Honda Civic at least) and on wet roads as well. I always felt...  Read More
