Newer is Better: Introducing the Ultra High Performance All-Season General G-MAX AS-05

Founded in 1915, General Tire has been making tires for over 100 years. That knowledge base improved even more in 1987 when General was purchased by a leading German-tire manufacturer. This infusion of capital and technology has helped General continue to make great tires at a very reasonable prices.   One such General tire that has tested well and impressed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I have only had these tires for about 2 months (~3000 miles), but they are performing well. I purchased them as a set (with Enkei Raijin 19 wheels) and have been very satisfied so far. I am interested to find out how they will perform in the snow (Massachusetts) this coming winter, but I am having fun on them for now.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender T+H

These are replacing the Michelin Energy Saver tires that came factory installed on the car when new. I live in the Midwest and those tires were terrible in any winter weather. I chose the Michelin Defender T+H due to the strong name that is Michelin, tread wear warranty, and tire tread depth of 10/32 compared to the 8/32 on the Premier A/S tires . After 50...  Read More

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 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

Took a chance on these because of the low price, and I am extremely impressed. They outperform the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 that were on it before, and the ride is quieter. The ride is smooth, the bumps are softened a bit more, and the traction wet or dry is excellent. I read and watched a lot of reviews about these before I bought them and I didn't find...  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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

This is the best all season tire I have ever purchased and it is especially apparent in the winter when all my neighbors are sliding around the streets and stuck on our local hill spinning their tires going nowhere and I simply drive on by.Added to that is the remarkable wear I am getting. I went to the shop to have my oil changed and rotate the tires and...  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 Michelin Defender LTX M/S

I have had mediocre to bad experiences with Michelin Tires in the past. I was a little uneasy about buying these tires. All that I can say is that I have been pleasantly surprised! These are super tires. The entire Michelin Organization should be very proud of this product. They do everything extremely well, except my front tires have a slight slip on road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S

Tires have been great so far. They are very similar to the Pilot Super Sport; however, they seem quieter on the road. Excellent cornering stability - they really hold the pavement during spirited driving. Gas mileage has seemed better than my old PSS's, definitely better than the Alpin PA4's that were on over the 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
