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

Based on Tire Rack reviews etc. I purchased these tires to replace the original P Zero's. Hard to believe the same company can produce such different tires, nevermind that Audi felt the need to put P Zero's on a car like this. The P7's are great. The ride is smooth, quiet, controlled and the mileage at 32 mpg on the highway is outstanding. Two thumbs up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I read product review all of the time but have probably written two in my life. These tires are amazing and I felt compelled to write a review. My Audi A6 wagon now feels like a sports car. Cornering is ridiculous! I can probably hold a steep corner at 90mph but haven't taken it there. During normal driving I have to now constantly look at the odometer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

In a word: planted. That's how you feel when you take a curve at what would have been an unsafe speed when you still had lesser tires. I can't overstate what a great tire this is for the money. For less than $200 a tire, these are a steal. They transformed my Audi A4 quattro from a nice commuter sedan to a cornering beast. Cornering is now considerably...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

My 2014 Audi S5 came with Pirelli PZero Rosso, 255, 35 YR, 19 tires; great, sticky summer performance tires to be sure. By 10K miles, it was easily time to replace them. They'd become very loud, and the OK wet handling had become squirelly at best. I decided to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 in the same size and speed rating (both are also load rated...  Read More

I'm on my third set of the Hancook Ventus V12 evos. Size 225/45/17 on Enki Racing RP-F1 wheels. Car Fwd Audi TT Mk 1 w/uprated HP.Car came with Nexus all weather tires. Comfortable, quiet, adequate.

The Quietest and Most Comfortable Tire?

With an unparalleled combination of a silky smooth ride and a noise level to match, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus has charmed its way onto many of our customers' vehicles. At over two million miles reported, the tire has rocketed to the number one position of our survey results. As one of the Tire Rack's test drivers, I wholeheartedly agree. Many...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

Given the compromises of an all-season tire over a dedicated summer or winter tire (which is usually what I have to choose), these tires are the best all-seasons I've ever had. They have excellent wet/dry cornering grip and brake very well. They almost feel like dedicated summer tires. Surprisingly, they do all this and manage to be very quiet. They also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I had a set of the Michelin A/S 3's on my 2008 Audi A6 (19 wheels) and loved them -- all aspects of the tire. So I opted for a set on my 2008 Audi A8 Sport (20 wheels) and initially loved the tires, but as time and mileage accrued, I have noticed a marked reduction in wet weather traction and an increase in propensity to hydroplane. I am only about 1/2 way...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3

I purchased my first set of Michelin snow tires after having Blizzaks for the las 3 years. My expectations have been exceeded in all categories. I would run these tires year round if they weren't designated snow tires. I will be purchasing a set of matching summer tires to replace the Pirelli P7's I previously used. I live in Connecticut and as of today, we...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season

Overall I'm impressed with these tires. I was concerned with how they handle in the snow and I was considering snow tires but these tires combined with the Audi Quattro make it impossible to get stuck. I drove through unplowed parking lots with 7 snow with no problem. treadwear is good. I had a couple of problems with blisters from hitting pot holes but that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiCrossContact Winter

Bought these tires just in time for the snow in Europe. Driven 11,000 miles in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria in various snow and ice conditions including crossing through the Alps from Germany to Austria. The all-wheel drive on the Audi definitely helps, but I'm very impressed. These tires also handle much better than the Blizzaks I ran for the previous...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4

Buick Regal w AWD may enhanced the performance of this Tire. If selection were not OM I believe I'd have chosen the Continental. That said, Snow, particularly rain the Tire provides a very secure and comfortable drive.The secret to Tires is matching the correct Tire to the Vehicle without doubt. In reading the previous reviews, I'd place an emphasis on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Best tire overall I've driven. On this Audi alone, I've had Goodyear LS2 (OE), Conti DWS - huge disappointment, MIchelin Pilot Super Sports, and now these. These steer way better, on my car, than any of the above, including the super sports. Way easier to place/correct mid corner. For the first time I can hear the turbo and the ride is simply more relaxed.A...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

I have used these tires on both my old 2005 Audi A6 4.2 and my new 2015 Audi A6 TDI. They are great winter tires. They perform well in cold weather and provide good traction in the snow.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

While 95+% of my driving has been done on the highway I can't believe the mileage I have got out of these OEM tires. I'm at over 70K miles with still 4-5/32nds still remaining. I was initially looking to move to Bridgestone Dueler Ecopia 422's, but this mileage is making me think twice.Road noise has obviously increased as the wear is getting down there, but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero

IF you drive an Audi, I would highly recommend the Audi R01 Blackwell tires. They perform amazing and are even one of the quietest low profile tires I have ever driven. They perform amazing in dry warm summer conditions and very well in the rain. I will definitely buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I just replaced the OEM Goodyear Excellence tires with these Michelins. I made the switch after only 1200 miles because the Goodyears were VERY noisy.. We get about 45 inches of rain per year here in (far) Northern California, so good wet weather rubber is imperative, so I needed All Season tires. The numbers TireRack got in their testing looked good for the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I'm nearing 10,000 miles on my Pilot Super Sports, and have just over five years in my 2009 Audi R8. When I replaced the OEM P Zeros with the PSS's I couldn't imagine the difference they made, both in terms of performance and in terms of wear. Without hesitation, I will be keeping Pilot Super Sports on my R8.Cornering is the real joy of the R8. There are...  Read More
