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

We bought my wife a Forester in November of 2010. We had a pretty bad winter that year, and she complained that her car wasn't doing well in the snow. I looked up the Yokohama Geolandres that were the OEM tires, and was shocked to see the bad reviews. Picked up a set of these Pirellis from Tire Rack (based on the great reviews). Well.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

These Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Plus tires replaced the stock Yokohama Geolandar 91A on my CX5. The difference is night and day. The stock tires were noisy, always.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

I purchased this tire because I got an incredible 111,000 miles out of my last set I purchased in 2008. I love them. I had bought a set for my Mom's 2003 CRV two years ago as well.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I bought these based on the great reviews from other 3d Gen CR-V owners. I haven't encountered snow or even significant rain yet, but my wife, who didn't like the ride with my recently replaced Nokian WR-SUV's (not recommended), really likes the ride now. So far, so good. Much quieter ride, holds the road great. MPG is down, but I guess that's because these...  Read More
