Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

Great tire. Handles well in wet, dry and light snow conditions. Have not tested in heavy snow but these tires exceed expectations for use in moderate climates such as mid atlantic states.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

I have a 2012 Ford Escape 4wd, I got it last April with 34,xxx on it, these tires were brand new from the dealer. They suffice in the summer, fall and spring. Quiet, smooth, and yields great fuel economy, (26-28 in the summer). Excellent dry and wet grip, and cornering stability considering the profile (truck balloons, not sport sedan)Now the real reason for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Bought a set if four about a month ago. After the trip home I noticed what I thought was an out of balance driver 's side front tire. I drive a lot of new , smooth as glass pavement. At 50 mph and above I perceived a small vibration driver's front. Had them all re-balanced at no cost thank goodness. Two were dead on and two needed .25 ounce weight added.The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

Where I live in Michigan, winter weather can vary drastically from day to day. The main roads tend to be slushy and sometimes icy. My neighborhood roads (and my driveway) can often be a sheet of ice! Yet these tires have handled these conditions amazingly well! Even driving through deeper snow, whether it's light and powdery or heavier and more dense, these...  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 Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These are OEM tires on my ML350 BlueTec with 20in AMG rims. After 24,000 miles they are completely worthless in even and inch of snow/slush. Up to 10,000 miles they performed reasonably well in the snow with dramatic reduction in traction as the miles added up. I'm going to buy another set of rims and dedicated winter tires, I might get one more summer out...  Read More

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

In dry weather the Michelin LTX AT2 grips the road well and corners nicely. In damp or wet weather the tires always break loose accelerating from a stop. Hydroplaning is so-so. I don't feel confident pushing the pace when it's wet outside. As far as snow is concerned, forget it. It's like being on ski's. I was trying to go up a very slight hill on my street,...  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 Yokohama AVID ENVigor (W-Speed Rated)

Very pleased with the ride, not an aggressive tire, but most of the time I'm just cruising the highway. I have taken the car out several times on twisty back roads and I cannot complain about their road holding ability. Since I only have 5k on the tires I don't know how well they will hold up in the long run. Personally, I'd be extremely pleased to get 20k...  Read More

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

Wow, I'm really happy with these. I've got these on a 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 SuperCrew and I'm impressed. These replaced the OEM tires that the truck came with. The ride is much better with these, smooth... A tiny bit noisier, but not an issue.They seem to be wearing really well. I've had to make a few long road trips now, long distance highway driving. No...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I use these X-Ice3 tires year around on my Outback. The first set was good for about 40,000 miles, and when it was time to replace them I didn't even think about getting anything else.They perform well on dry roads and in Oregon's winter rains. Traction and stopping performance on wet and dry roads has never been a problem. No complaints about road noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I bought these tires 5 years ago and I just bought them again. They have been the champions of 4 winters on my 2010 Honda CRV. I have been through lots of light and medium snow and some deep snow. When I'm driving through a few inches of snow with these, it feels like I'm driving on pavement. They handle ice ok but not great. But no tires handle ice great. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude HT

Goodyear bills these as AT tires. They are not AT tires. Terrible on muddy and dry double track. Awful in the snow. Came as OEM when the dealer told me I was getting GY Adventurers with my FX4 package. When I asked them to fix both GY and the dealer just shrugged and said They are AT tires... Then why s HT in the name? I will replace with Firestone...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG20

Good value for the price, but I have been a little under-whelmed by the traction on wet and dry roads in the cold without actual snow coverage. On previous cars I have used Michelin X-Ice and Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires, which cost a little more than these Yokos, but do seem to deliver a bit better performance in those conditions.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Appears to be as predicted however not many miles as yet. Snow performance yet to come.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk AS

I have driven approximately 750 miles and have tested them in Oregon back roads, dry and wet surface. So far, I am really impressed with the performance and the price given. Half a price of older piece of junk turanzas but the road noise is significantly lower on Firehawk AS. The tire has a little vibration at first 300 when I bought new, but the vibration...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-80

These Blizzaks are the third set I have owned for my SUV┬┐s. I like driving on the spirited side since I like buying sporty vehicles. My first set was for my 2010 Acura MDX. The traction on ice and snow was amazing. I ran these for 4 years without an issue. Lots of tread left when I sold them. Currently I am impressed with the performance of these tires on my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

These Pirelli P-Zeros All Season Plus-revised compund tires replaced Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. They've performed similarly, except that they're a quieter, softer-feeling ride - similar to a Michelin Primacy MXV4, without sacrificing any handling compared to the Pilot Sports. They seem to be wearing like the MXV4s -- that is, a little slower than the Pilot...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These tires came on my 2014 Ford Escape AWD. The tires are quiet and work well on dry pavement. The wet traction seems to be be ok. When the snow flies, these tires do not perform very well. I can handle the slight slippage when accelerating, but stopping with these tires in the snow is not very good. I have slid when traveling under 20 MPH when I...  Read More
