Tires: Do you trust CR and TireRack?

When buying tires, how much consideration do you give to Consumer Reports and Tire Rack reviews? I know that the 'surveys' section of TR is actually just customer feedback - not specific testing results. (Although some tires are tested and graded by TR for certain criteria).

Right now I am reading reviews with caution, because consumers have varying expectations for tires and different conditions of use.

Some reviewers have made FE claims - good and bad - that were simply too great to have been attributed to rolling resistance alone.

Anyway, I'm curious what resources you use when researching tires.

Thanks for reading.
