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

A lot of highway miles put on these tires, but on the job in West Texas up and down lease roads to rig site they took the beating of the roads with large rocks in most places. 72,000 miles and not one flat. The dealership did not want to replace them due to tread left on tire, but I insisted and got a new set on for winter. Will definitely by again and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season

Big improvement over the tires I had before. Very quiet and comfortable. Not great in winter conditions but then again, they are not designed to be. For my car they were not that pricey but for some reason in the 225 50 R18 size they are double the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I've owned a few winter tires over the years on various vehicles, all brand name tires, but these are by far the best. They do exactly what they're designed to do, keep you safe in all winter conditions. I've owned a few that were quieter and others had better tread wear and lower rolling resistance, but none compared to these in ice and snow traction from a...  Read More

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

Coming from BFG Sport Comp-2's, these are extremely comparable in dry conditions. I have noticed little difference between the 2 in the performance department. Yes the comp-2's gripped better but marginally. Where these begin to shine vs the comp-2's is road noise. They are noticeably more quiet on all kinds of roads. The tread wear on these is improved as...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2

I bought these for winter driving on my X5 5.0 and could not say more about how many times they have saved me. Pulled out of snow that was so deep it was over the hood. I fired up the car and got out of with out any issue. Also drove for hours on a highway with 4 inches of snow and never lost traction or confidence. They can be a bit noisy but not us much as...  Read More

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 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 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 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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

From Spring to Fall, I find the ride quality, handling, and traction to be quite good. The have good cornering grip provide a comfortable highway ride.Unfortunately, there were a few significant drawbacks with these tires that offset their strong performance in the wet/dry. After 42,500 miles, my dealer recommended I replace these tires soon. I was a bit...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

After researching winter tires for my 2018 Subaru Outback, I decided to select the Yokohama Ice Guard. The past reviews from customers were inspiring. I am not disappointed! These tires perform well in snowy condition; both powder and packed. I have not experienced any issues with traction and performance.   Read More

Tough to Decide? This Winter, Use Tire Rack's Tire Decision Guide.

It’s time. The winter slip and slide. And since you can’t sit winter out curled up by the fireplace sipping hot “cocoa,” you’re just going to have to get your tires right. Once you’ve driven on winter tires, you won’t feel the need to stay close to home and you won’t go back to an all-season tire in the winter ever again. We call it the “Ah-Ha Moment.” It’s...  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 Hankook Optimo H426

These were OEM tires from Hyundai. These tires are poor quality, noisy on the road and poor traction on wet roads. I'm always scared to drive every time there's heavy rain or the road is wet. I'm planning to replace my tires this winter with Michelin.   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 Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I was only seeking Bridgestone (JP) or Micheline (FR), but as the French competitor was more expensive and were not made in France, I chose BS made in Japan (I grew up in Yokohama, Japan but Yokohama tires didn't seem to match either BS or MI). I rev my 3.2L VTEC motor very often and drive hard.There were two more expensive BS summer tires with not...  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
