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

This is probably my third Set for this car and the best so far for my type of driving (spirited is an understatement). My daily commute includes a 9 mile section of mountain road that drops (or climbs) 2500' with over 100 turns. I am probably one of the fastest drivers on this stretch of road and I am lucky if any tires last more than 1 year. This is because...  Read More

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

This is an E-Load rated tire, meaning that they're a little heavy and overkill for my smaller 4x4 Tacoma. However, I think it's the reason they've held up so incredibly well- the little casting hairs are still visible on the treads. My friend has larger 33 tires on his diesel 2500 Silverado, and they're a lot more worn down. I will acknowledge that my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

What is your life worth?Bridgestone Blizzaks are a phenomenal snow/ice tire. These tires (mount 4 tires, never 2) can save your life...literally. Better traction, stopping, accident avoidance, reliability to get where your going in an emergency all add up to better safety. Simply the best thing you can do to protect your car, your life and those of others...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I use these year round here in Norther Michigan and in Massachusetts. Wish they still hade the run flat version, maybe that was in 3D, not sure why they don't have them. Anyway, this tire is a brilliant and essentially year round friend. Very quiet and smooth all seasons with performance both for higher speeds, snow and ice, wet and dry. Off street as you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Winterforce UV

I bought these tires when I first moved back to Vermont from Florida. So I don't have much to compare there tires to but I will say my first few winter storms I had my jeep 4x4 every time. But after getting more comfortable driving I started leaving it I rwd and after that I very rarely had to use 4x4 the only time I used 4x4 was when I had to drive up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Fortera HL Edition

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee (JGC). I put 62,775 on the OEM set of tires with no complaints. I only changed them out as we were going into winter (which turned out to be a non-event that year) and could probably have gotten another 10K or so miles out of them. I replaced them with the same tire as there was no option in the 265/50-20 size at that time....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

It's my first experience with winter tires ever. these sottozero 3 winter tire is simply extraordinary! My bmw is rear wheel drive only. these tires make my car behave like an all-wheel drive car. I went to snowboarding everyweek in last winter. The car has been through light snow, deep snow situation, and even helped me survive through a storm. I changed to...  Read More

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

As for that Snowflake rating: Plenty of reviews talk about the the K02's as great tires but a lot of people are buying these expecting them to compete with Blizzaks as a winter tire, I will tell you that there is absolutely no comparison to a dedicated set of winter tires for most winter conditions. They are far superior to a mud tires in any winter...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta ASX

I bought the Kumho Ecsta ASX as a winter tire replacement for the summer tires that came on my car. I am very impressed with the Kumhos. These are a great tire for the money! Handling is great, snow traction is decent, and ride noise is very low. I may keep them on my car all year long. I would recommend them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

4000 miles in, nothing bad to say about these tires yet. They haven't seen a winter yet, so snow and ice ratings weren't answered. Definitely quiet and smooth riding.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I really like these tires. We have a lot of days where the temperatures are below freezing at night and warm in the afternoons, so I had to go to all weather tires. They don't track as well as switching between summer and winter tires, but these tires are a good compromise. I was wearing out my winter tires quickly when the weather got warm in the...  Read More

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

Best all around tire that I have ever purchased. Great in normal and wet conditions and pretty good with snow. Nothing like snow tires, but comes closer than any other tire I have had. I average about 30k miles per year, so I am buying tires about every 3 years or less. The one thing I did notice is that that they tend to track the grooves in the roads where...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact Sport

My original street tires were worn out in the mountains of NorCal. They served me well, but they were street tires, and on a dry summer day made for some spirited tight corners on the sierra nevada roads. The problem is, I needed something to get me to the mountains during winter,and the stock tires didn't do it for me. Fast forward and I move to Michigan....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 N-Spec

If you are looking for a performance winter tire. This is it. I've used normal winter tires on a Honda Civic before and i hated the handling and the noise and the grip in the rain and dry wasn't that great. With my performance package Mustang GT, I knew i wanted to maintain the sporty handling that the car had on the factory Pirelli P-Zero Maximum...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Bought these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone tires on my '13 Highlander after 50K of city/hwy combined driving. OE Bridgestone tires were okay, but I was looking for a better all season tire for all types of driving here in eastern PA.Reviewed all of the TR testing and reviews and decided to go with these Michelins. After 7,500 miles of fall, winter, and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

2nd season on these tires, from approx. 5k to 11,400 miles. a little more wear on the front this year due to a fairly dry winter.front center tread @8/32's, shoulders @ 7/32's...rear center is 9/32's, outside shoulders 9/32's and inside @ 8/32's...1st season had a lot of snow and wear front and rear was very even and ended with 10/32's for all four..not used...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier A/S

Tire size is 215/45-17, the OEM spec'd size. The feedback here is after 52k+ miles on the tires. I've had the tires since Jan-2016 and average 3400 miles/month or 40.8k miles/annum. The review is not as comprehensive as I would like because we had a light snow the past winter. To reflect this, I had to leave the heavy snow and ice ratings as N/A.The feedback...  Read More

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

I bought my car lightly used with 32000 kilometers on it which translates to roughly 20,000 miles. When I got it it had the Pirelli P6 Four Seasons tires which, until I got these installed, I thought were pretty good. With the P6 4S I found turn-in and general cornering stability a little sloppy which I attributed to not having the sports suspension on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Travel from Washington to Wisconsin requires good winter tires. I have been very pleased with the Scorpions in any/all conditions encountered. 90% of the time it's dry, so I want to be able to drive like summer tires and also have them quiet. These do both, yet when the wind howls with blowing snow across the Dakotas, they stick and handle very well in that...  Read More
