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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

The Acura came with Michelin Latitude Tour all season tires. Within a year, the car had developed an annoying drone sound that was really noticeable after 35 mph. The dealer couldn't find the cause so we lived with the noise rather than spend more time at the dealership. We travel a lot so we got used to the dull roar, but when our kids drove the car, they...  Read More

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

A great improvement over the slippery OEM Michelins or my last tire the Continental DW's. It's like getting a new car. I never knew my Acura could ride this nice or this quiet. Wish I would have bought these years ago. A tip for tire researchers: Search by tire size not by car model. This tire does not show up for my car when searching by car model but it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Winter Slalom KSI

I purchased these tires at a great price and picked them up Jan 21st 2014. I had them installed in South Bend. It literally drove through a blizzard to get them. Indiana highway made people get off 80/94 that day. Anyway. the way up was slippery, i drove slow. On the way back an Acura MDX spun out in front of me. i stopped in time to avoid the accident.

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

The Kumho ECSTA PA31 is probably the best passsenger car tire I have ever bought and I'm 48 years old. I have driven this tire on a 2007 Acura TL for 10,000 miles and it has been nothing short of outstanding. I drive 280 miles a day, 3 to 4 days a week from the Eastern Allegheny mountains to the Pittsburgh airport. Through driving rains, dry roads, sleet and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Altimax Arctic

We live in the :snow belt of New Hampshire. Not only do we see snowfalls measured in feet, but blowing snow, sleet and freezing rain is all too common. I've owned all the popular brands that promise the world, and charge about the same. I was disgusted in the hype when the performance was falling so far short of what was promised.Then I bought the General...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4

well performing tire all around (not good in deep snow- but most all seasons are not). But these tires only lasted 30K miles on my 2011 Acura RDX. Front wheel drive, rotated every 5K miles. What gives? Always kept tire pressure around 37-39 and no hard driving. (ok maybe one burnout when I first bought the car lol) Putting aside the wear issue, these are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

A couple of months ago we put a set of these tires on our 2005 Acura TL and these tires perform great. We live in Green Bay Wisconsin and deal with a great variety of weather conditions. This past weekend we took a road trip over to the Twin Cities of Minnesota and the roads were covered with snow and ice. Needless to say, I couldn't have asked for these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Tire feels great on the Acura TSX. Is certainly quiet, smooth and comfortable. The wear has been little to none in 20,000 miles, so it is excellent; handling is very sure too - rain or dry conditions. I am more concerned with the TSX feeling like a comfortable sedan than a sporty car... Unfortunately had to be in Atlanta during the snow in January amongst...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Second set of ExtremeContact DWS tires I've purchased for my vehicles - Acura and Honda. This is a great year round tire. Perfect for DWS conditions. Price is affordable, comfy ride, steering response and traction in all weathers is great. Just had a couple inches of snow and these performed GREAT. Waiting for the heavy snowfall to give am update. Spirited...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

These are the quietest tires I have ever owned. They also handle extremely well. I have 160,000 miles on the car and do all types of driving. I have had many other brands that were way more expensive on the car and these are the ones I now recommend to everyone. My buddy put them on his Acura TL, and he's hooked.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza EL42

These were OEM tires on my Acura. I have enjoyed them. I will probably look for a softer and quieter ride in my next set as most of my driving is highway. I drive very aggressively at higher speeds and love the handling and traction. They don't squeal or slide easily at all. PSI maintained at 37 cold throughout the life and I'm just hitting the wear bars...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Trying these tires out on my Odyssey (changed the OE wheel/tire combo to some Acura MDX wheels). Previous set of regular tires were Bridgestone Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza's. These Yokohama's have given me better steering response and overall grip in both wet & dry conditions. Road noise is only slightly worse than the Bridgestones. Treadlife will not be...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Just went through an unexpected blizzard within the last month and I must say these tires performed quite admirably! I purchased these tires mid-December knowing the Ling Long's that came on the vehicle wouldn't be able to handle any snow since there were the absolute worst tires I have ever had on a vehicle and could barely handle dry pavement. The Ling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I could not stand the lacking quality of OE tires (Eagle RS-A) So after I bought my car, I sold off my OE (40 miles on them) and bought a new set of tires. I ended with Bridgestone Turenza Serenity Plus and could not be happier.There is a huge difference between Ultra High Performance and GT(grand touring) All season tires with 19 rims. You are trading off...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Impressied when first mounted; even more impressed 11,000 miles later. I have yet to try these tires in snow but, otherwise, they're a fine match for my Acura RL. The ride is remarkably quiet for any tire let alone one with a visually complex tread pattern. They balanced beautifully (Hunter Road Force 9700) and provide excellent straightline stability at...  Read More

Best Brake Pads for Low Dust

Are you tired of constantly cleaning ugly, black brake dust off of your factory or aftermarket rims? If you're willing to give up a small amount of braking capability, you can use ceramic brake pads - which will go a long way in reducing how often you need to clean your rims. These pads produce less brake dust and the dust is a lighter color that doesn't...  Read More
