You may or may not agree with their ratings but it's a good read with a fair amount of information and some food for thought. Can't say they've ever really steered me wrong when it's come to buying stuff they've tested.
I bought the mag at costco over the weekend. I'll try to scan and post tomorrow. For the V rated performace all season, the Contiextreme finished second from last. I think they used 205/55/16 size for the V rated tests. This alone shook me up re my tire choice... If I recall the michelin pilot AS finished towards the top.
