Michelin Premier A/S vs Michelin Defender: Which is Best?

Often times when tire manufacturers produce several popular models, loyalists of the brand are confused on which to select. On paper, both the Michelin Premier A/S and Michelin Defender do everything extremely well, however they are two completely different tires meant for two different jobs. Both tires work very well as an all-season option, are quiet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Carving Edge

Tires were put on my audi a8, they feel absolutely amazing on snow and ice at highway speeds. I drive mountian passes daily and have yet to have a feeling other then absolute control. Great tires the only thing I cannot comment on is tire life as this is there first season.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R

Best cup tire ever for Audi R8. 1.2Gs in the corners, superb ride quality for both DD and Highway, better wet handling than Hoosiers or Michelin Cups, and longer life than both due to thicker inner and outer shoulders. Should not be used or stored at temperatures under 40df, but otherwise works great as a primary set of tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Purchased these tires in February '14 for my '02 Audi S6 Avant. Only one set of wheels and didn't want to kill a set of dedicated snow tires with summer driving in CO, so I needed a compromise tire for my Audi.Selected the DWS for its aggressive tread design, very similar to a dirt rally tire. Shortly after purchase, made a ski trip to Crested Butte, CO from...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These tires are amazing compared to the OE Continental that were on my Merc and a lot other tires I've tried in the past. The ride is smoother, quieter and with a lot more grip. I've got the tires installed on a cold rainy day and immediately drove 200 miles on the highway. I was very impressed when the brand new Audi in front of me started hydroplaning on a...  Read More

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

Well, I finally stepped up to the plate and and purchased the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. Summer in WNY, so I cannot attest to the performance in the snow as yet. I usually switch to the Blizzacks once late Dec & Jan arrive. The Audi, with the Blizzacks is actually better than my LTZ Suburban (all-wheel drive)in the snow. I have to say, after...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Fantastic tire!!! Replaced a set of Cont DWS - nice tire but started getting really noisy about 35,000 miles. This tire goes through all kinds of weather with no difficulty - snow is no problem at all. Noise is low, ride is fantastic and they are wearing like iron. I do drive mostly highway but they have already out performed the DWS, Goodyear F1 allseason,...  Read More

Kumho Ecsta PA31: All-Season Traction at a Great Price

The Ecsta PA31 is Kumho's newest introduction to the High Performance All-Season performance category. It's also currently ranked number one in our survey results. Ecsta PA31 tires are typically at a price-point that's a little lower when compared to similar options. These tires would be a great choice for drivers of mid-level sports cars, sporty coupes...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

Can't say enough about this tire!! I've run the P6's for years. What a mistake. The difference between the two tires makes this feel and ride like a totally different car. I cannot comment on the snow traction but in dry weather, the Audi Allroad corners sharper, rides softer and is very smooth. They are quiet, responsive and I've had my average gas mileage...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

Purchased for all season wet use. Very easy break-in with multiple rebalances as tires settled in. Tires hold balancing quite well, however.Biggest complaint is the poor ride quality- tried various tire pressures from 35PSI to 43PSI (OE spec is 36psi to 49PSI). Went with 35 series instead of 30's but can only surmise it helped any. Wanted the higher load...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I use my car to visit customers about 2 days a week, during those highway trips, I put on about 200 miles total. The remainder, I have a short commute to the office or work from home. This is an AWD car with a 60/40 rear/front torque split so I kept a careful eye on rear tire wear. Tires were rotated every 10k. After the initial break-in and first 10k, I...  Read More

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

The improvement over the OE Continetals is very noticeable. the noise reduction is very evident, handling overall is superior and the ride is somewhat better. Wish Audi had the sense to install these as OE.   Read More

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

This is a fantastic tire and I got an opportunity to test it in a controlled environment on an Audi A4. I was able to compare it against other competing tires (Continental, Goodyear, and others). The difference was amazing. These tires performed beautifully on the test track and provided a level of grip I had not experienced every before. After an entire da...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

i have an audi sq5, which i purchased in DEC 2013. the car comes with summer rubber so i had to get those off the car asap. i shopped around on tirerack for the michelin's that the dealer recommended, and after i was done laughing at the price, i did a generic search for all tires that would fit the sq5. i came across these Generals and having no experience...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

This tire changed the literally performance of my car. It already handled very well but, the performance increase provided by the Conti Extreme Contact DW was noticeable from the first day. I reccomended them to a friend that has a highly modified Audi S4, he too had the same reaction as mine. I can't imagine a better Bang for the buck tire. In fact, trying...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour HP

Decent handling, terrible wear. The OEM tires on my wife's Audi Q5, driven gently for less than 25K miles, and completely shot. I've been a Michelin fan for decades and always defaulted to te brand, but not this time. Maybe the aftermarket version of the tire is better, but buyer beware; I'm not taking the chance.   Read More

Since I have put these tires on the weather in Michigan has been BRUTAL . extreme cold , deep snow , ice .. everything you can think of . Now back to wet right around freezy temp . I am blown away by the performance of these tires & I have had them on various vehicles for 10 + years . Maybe 4 + sets on trucks , SUV's etc . Yes the Audi has AWD but it is not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I live in a mountain resort community. Winter tires are a necessity and are mounted on all my vehicles over half the year. I have used Dunlop Wintersports for about 13 years and their performance meets and often exceeds my expectations. Their only limitation is the ground clearance of my Audi.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

I really like this tire for my 07 Honda Odyssey. The tire was one of the best I had on the car as far as handling goes, very good in dry and rain for this style of car. It is OK in the snow but no all season tire is as good as a snow tire, they just don't compare. This tire has good steering response. The original tires were Dunlops (just OK but would never...  Read More
