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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

I really like these tires. Living in Germany I get to test out the Y speed rating, but my little Audi will only go 142mph. Not enough engine to go any faster. At those speeds it handles very nicely and predictable. Wet traction is very good on the curves and hills on my way to work. I only drove in the snow once with these, not a good time, but they were not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus

Update to initial response when tires were new. So far, very impressed with these Pirelli's. I have been a Michelin fan for many years but based upon Tire Rack reviews and early wear on original Michelin's, bought these instead. Very happy after 2 long wet drives of over 500 miles on pretty bad pavement. They soaked up most of the bumps and went through a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Michelin Pilot Super Sports on a Audi A3. Just a really brilliant tire. Very impressed with stability, steering input response and overall dry traction. In the wet the Michelin PSS is also passing my tests with flying colors. These tires replaced a set of all season Falken's. While the Ziex 912's are no slouch, they are easily outperformed by the PSS. It is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I would recommend the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S to a friend. I have now tried the Pirelli PZero, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S and the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S on my 2014 Audi A6 with Sport suspension and 20 wheels. Here are the results:Pirelli Pzero: Loud low pitched and high pitched whine at all speeds. Noise gets louder as speed increases. LOUD over 60...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 3

OEM on my Audi S4. With 14000 miles, tires are basically shot. Evenly worn, still decent traction but very noisy and down to the wear bars. Unless you have deep pockets, wouldn't recommend these tires at all.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

These tire are seriously the BEST! I drive the only front wheel drive audi made and these tires make it feel Quattro I love them. I have ptsd for some nasty accidents I've been into and these tires give me a boost of confidence that ive been looking for. Thank you Bridgestone   Read More

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
