I've had them long enough to have driven in almost every condition on road, including deep snow, ice, heavy rain, dry highway, secondary roads with tight turns, and some highway cruising.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact GX

These are the OE tires on my Outback, and I already know I will replace them with the same model when it's time. I've had a Subaru before, and several 4WD trucks, but have never had a vehicle track like this one does in the snow. It's like having a 28 MPG tank at my command. We've had a lot of snow in the past couple of weeks and I am astounded at how this...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

I have always prefered a Michelin tire, and have had great service from them over the years. The prices are high, and I have wondered if part of that is paying for the name?

In fact those 11 year-old Generals were are currently on a farm trailer, and show...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax HP

This is with the tires inflated to their maximum suggested cold pressure. The replacements were the same size, but from Goodyear. They, too wore the corners off in about 20K to 25K miles and became noisy....  Read More

Came standard on my King Ranch - very familiar with Pirelli, we have Pirelli tires on 3 fine German automobiles, including their respective sets of winter tires.

Sure they spin now and again when you pull away from a standstill in the wet, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

These tires have never ridden very well. There's a slight shimmy at 70+ MPH. I've had them rebalanced several times, and inspected, they tell me there's nothing wrong with them.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I wouldn't normally post a review until I had put more miles on a set of tires, but thought I would in case there's anyone else out there like me not wanting to spend a fortune on tires but still wanting good handling.

I've had these tires for 2yrs and they are about due for new ones. I personally like the tires, but the ride is not great for my truck. This could be a truck issue.
