Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

These tires are simply amazing for a 4 season snow tire.I compared them to some $150 all Season Michelins. These tires were slightly better in the dry and the rain. I had left two of the Michelins on the back, and in the snow the traction differential made the car unsafe to drive. These tires had so much more snow traction that the car was unstable with the...  Read More

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

I bought these tires for my Maxima. They came with a set of Goodyear Eagle RS-A's. With the RS-A's you really felt the road. I then bought a set of Michelin Primacy and they were a complete upgrade to the Eagles. I basically got around 40K on both sets. So now I put on the Comp-2 and they are even better. It's like I now have the best traits of the 2 sets...  Read More

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

I've been using the BFG GForce comp and comp 2 tires for years. The comp 2 is a great improvement over the comp. I have a 1985 Ford LTD LX (same chassis as the fox Mustang) and have built my LTD LX to canyon carve. These tires really help. I know there are stickier tires than these. But I also Daily Drive this car and am limited on the wheels I can use due...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Tire model is an excellent tire for a All Season performance tire. I have purchased numerous sets of this model. Unfortunately the height of this time is not particularly comparable with my vehicle and 19¿ wheels. They seemed too tall and caused some drifting on the road, even when the steering was tight. I have returned the tires under the customer...  Read More

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

Original equipment on 2016 Pilot EX. Tires seem quite noisy. Very poor traction in snow. Treadwear down to 3mm at 20,000 miles. Did not replace with these same tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

bought these tires for my daughters car and couldn't be happier they are not like the old blizzaks they are very stable no mush and I feel confident that she can get out of just about anything a new York winter can throw at her.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I bought this tire to replace the Continental DWS-06 when I came to the South East, because I didn't expect to encounter any snow. I initially thought about purchasing the Michelin Pilot Super Sports or the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position again, but after driving a friend's M3 equipped with the Firestones, I bought 6 tires (2 front/4 rear) for less...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

With only having 1200 miles on them the overall wear question is still a unknown. Traction in all conditions has been very good. If pushed in a dry corner at hwy speeds I do experience more understeer/drift then the factory All season tires. Braking on ice/snow is excellent. Noise on grooved pavement can be moderate as is chasing the grooves.The colder the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very good light snow traction with reasonable ice traction. Deep snow traction is OK for a dedicated snow. This tire really excels in dry and wet handling and braking compared to previous ice and snow tires I've had. Tread wear and tire noise is impressive as well. Compared to other snow and ice tires I've had for a number of vehicles including (Bridgestone,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I have just over 4,000 miles on this set. These tires are amazing! A perfect match for my little sports car. My car doesn't go out to play in the rain much so I can't really comment on that but just to say they were fine. I didn't really go all out when it was raining. Now, in the dry - these tires stick like glue to the road. Wear has been great also. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I don't have lots of miles on these but so far really like them. Very grippy on twisties and corners. Steering response is excellent and they are stiff and provide good feedback. The pair very well with the sport suspension on the Civic Hatchback Sport. I had to drive in the snow with them last week and they did fine for summer tires. First autocross for the...  Read More

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

I went with these tires looking for a sportier all season tire to replace the very old tires that were on my car when I got it, and I've been very satisfied to that end. They feel very precise at all levels of steering input and seem to have quite a bit of traction. I've yet to feel or hear traction breaking even under enthusiastic driving on backroads,...  Read More

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

Awesome Tire! This is the 2nd set of 4 that we purchased for our highlander. The 1st set went over 100K miles and still had tread wear left (but we replaced them because of the winter season). I will continue to purchase these tires for the highlander until it dies.   Read More

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

I bought my 2012 Honda Crv 5,5 years ago. I have 66,000 miles on it and have my original tires. Looking to buy the same in the next 2-3 months. Thank you, Bridgestone.   Read More

Best snow tires for winter driving : Bridgestone versus Michelin.

The Winter of 2017/2018 has been one for the record books.  Much of the country has had to deal with severe cold temperatures and record breaking snowfalls.   Some of the sub-zero cold temperatures that much of the country experienced were the coldest recorded in over a decade.  Not long before I wrote this blog, I awoke to a morning of negative 14 degrees...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

These tires are just amazing for the price. Perform almost as well as the top brands but last significantly longer and for half the price. I've driven about 30,000 miles so far on them and notice no deterioration of the tread. Which sounds impossible. These tires are about 2 lbs heavier each than Pirelli P-Zero, which probably impacts fuel economy minutely.   Read More

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

I owned a 2003 Dodge Ram Diesel quad cab. The first set of tires gave me 77,000 miles, and the second set 69,000 miles. I religiously rotated the tires every 6,000 miles. I am an avid hunter and I've hunted in Ackley, Pa. Where the lake effect snow is unbelievable. So, traveling from Kentucky to Northern Pa. right after Thanksgiving with ice and snow, can be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I have used Blizzak¿s for years on a variety of vehicles. These tires on my 2008 Volvo XC90 V8 Sport are outstanding. I live in upstate NY and we get hit hard with lake effect snow. I can drive through 6¿ or more of snow with no problem. It turns the Volvo into a tank that feels like it can go through anything. I also have used Blizzaks on my BMW 3 series,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Vredestein Quatrac 5

Just picked these up as a year-round, all-weather tire for our AWD Tiguan. We'll be using this car primarily in the winter, so I was specifically looking for a severe winter service rated all-season alternative to dedicated snows paired with high performance all-seasons on separate wheels. We just aren't going to see enough miles on this car to warrant 2...  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
