Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I confesses that I seldom write reviews, though I benefit from them, but these tires are so good, I have to do this. If you have read all the other reviews, as I did, you know there is general agreement on certain qualities, but a few complaints. The key fact in this is SOFT SIDEWALLS, which in turn affects all other properties. I plan to briefly confirm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza

Replaced my Odyssey's stock wheels & Michelin tires with Acura MDX wheels & these Bridgestones, and I'm glad I did. Pros: MUCH better treadlife Quieter Better wet-weather grip & stability The only con is decreased steering response with these tires (and since each wheel/tire combo weighs less than the OE setup, I'm pretty sure it's because of the tires).I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

All of my ratings are for driving the Odyssey moderately, not like a sports car. How else do you drive a minivan full of people ? My daily driver is an Acura RSX Type S, the minivan for my wife and I drive occasionally. The important qualities for a minivan are tread wear, ride comfort, wet traction in the rain, and steering response. It was great for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

During this summer, I bought a set of winter rims and tires through Tire Rack for my 2013 Acura TL SH-AWD. I live in MN and All season tires don't cut it. Furthermore using winter rims really keep your stock rims sharp far longer (sand & salt issues).So in the past I have purchased multiple sets of Blizzaks which have been excellent in all winter conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical

Good enough tire for summer/non-snowy climates. Currently at 25K miles and no treadwear issues, I Live in WI and these do not handle winter well, cannot get traction in snow, got stuck in my own (flat)driveway when it was snow covered. We routinely have 3+ inches of snow during commutes. Going to get the new Continental DWS, which I used previously on an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

Bought set of 4 of these tires when we got a nail through the sidewall of the stock bridgestones at 40k miles.First impression was wow the bridgestones were loud and the good years were near silent. They did not get much louder through the 55k life of usage. They also smoothed out what was a rough OEM ride. Tires were rotated regularly and wore great. They...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX Sport

These tires came stock on my wife's Acura MDX and thus far they are impressing me greatly. Considering these are not UHP tires, the cornering grip is excellent and nearing grip levels of the UHP tires on some of my performance cars. I found this out accidentally since the MDX hides its speed very well and sometimes I find myself going into a corner a little...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S

These tires were OEM supplied. Having had poor experiences in the past with Michelins on several Acuras, I was very skeptical. These changes my mind. They are very quiet and smooth. We live in the Santa Cruz mountains and drive a combination of very fast well maintained roads which could be described as our own private race track (HWY 9, HWY 35, HWY 236 and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

This is a follow up from a review at 4,000 miles. These are great tires for a sporty sedan. I chose these over Extreme Contacts because of the expected wear factor. 14,000 miles later they have minimal wear. Handling and ride are excellent and give a sense of confidence in rain and light snow. I just did a one-day 400 miles round trip to (cold and icy)...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

These tires replaced Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position that replaced the OEM Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 on my Acura TSX. The Michelins had poor dry traction as the tires aged and were just ok in snow. The Bridgestones were excellent in all aspects except the winter season. They were terrible on ice or light/heavy snow, to the point that I needed to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle LS-2

I purchased my AWD Acura TLX in January. I have driven the tires in all conditions including light snow, heavy snow, greasy wet snow, packed snow, dry roads, and wet roads. Based on the reviews I read, I expected the worst. I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance. With that being said, I know Acura's excellent AWD system, the TLX's sound...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This was the best tire I ever put on my Acura TL. Car has 128,000 miles on it and in excellent shape. Presently in the process of replacing with the same Conti tires. Excellent city/highway ride, great traction and outstanding wear verses OEM tires when car was purchased. Have had 2 sets of Bridgestone Potenzas that disappointed me as to wear. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

I've had these 4 months driving an 2006 Acura TL manual transmission in Denver, Colorado. Pros: - Quiet, much quieter than I expected. I don't think I've heard a single squeal in 4 months. WAY more quite than the awful Bridgestones I used to have. - Good wet traction, including snowy slush - Attractive price - Good dry traction- Decent snow traction, I guess...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

This tire combined with thie Acura RDX vehicle is one of the reason for my high ratings of this tire. Living in the Northeast, I drive in all types of weather, rain, snow and sleet and I have never felt unsafe driving in any of these conditions. Keeping in mind also that my weekly average mileage is just over 700 miles and 85% of these are highway with an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow

Excellent traction in snow and ice conditions. I am in south east PA where there is moderate snow, but the roads are mainly clear throughout the winter. These are excellent in snow and also perform very well in dry and wet conditions which usually prevail in our winter here. They are smooth and quiet. I feel very safe driving in snow with these. They have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

My Acura came with the standard Michelin's and a very short life span.(28k) I was hesitant about my first Kumho tire purchase as ride comfort and noise level were more important than high performance handling as I'm no race car driver and spend the majority of my driving time well within the limits of the law. I enjoy going through the paces every once and a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Hands down the best tires on the market for the price. I have put these tires on every vehicle I've owned. They make you fall back in love with your car!! They are INCREDIBLE IN THE SNOW and any other type of driving conditions. I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for tires for any type of vehicle. I personally have used them on two Acura...  Read More

Tire Pressure Monitor Systems

Recently, there's been a push for consumers to better understand their vehicles both for safety and efficiency. We now have oil life monitors, tire rotation reminders, monitors that will tell us if we have a light bulb out and since the mandate was introduced in 2007 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Tire Pressure Monitor Systems...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I originally purchased the DM-V1 for my 2007 Acura MDX. I recently traded it in for a AWD Murano. These tires were amazing on the Acura. I live in Northern WI and never felt like I could not handle large amounts of snow, sleet, slush, or ice. There was no question when I planned to buy tires for the new Murano that these tires would be my purchase. They are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I have had these tires on a 2008 Acura TSX as replacements for the OEM Michelin's. The reason for the purchase of these over the OEMs was because of the good online reviews and price difference.I consider myself somewhat of a spirited driver at times. I have no complaints regarding the handling, braking, and comfort of these tires. They've gotten me through...  Read More
