Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

If you don't believe the hype with these tires, then you need to try them and boy will you be a believer. After having the front suspension components replaced on my 650i equipped with 19 genuine BMW Style 167(M6) wheels(245/40ZR19 and 275/35ZR19) along with a weighted alignment, it is literally like day and night when it comes to responsiveness and...  Read More

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

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

This is an excellent tire. My first priorities were traction (safety), noise, then comfort. This tire delivers as advertised. I feel like I got a lot of performance in all weather conditions for the cost. My confidence level while driving with this tire is second to none. This tire has rescued me from a couple of close calls both in the rain and on dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus ZP

This car has the sport suspension upgrade. I love summer tires on a BMW. This is not a sports car, but I love driving it; the steering response is incredible. N/A on the snow performance, as I have snow tires on it three months out of the year. Keep in mind my 7 rating on ride comfort is compared to other run flats and the snow tires. The excellent noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

Bought these to replace aging and worn set of Continental DWS's that whose life was cut short due to bad alignment and worn suspension. These Pirelli's have a stiffer sidewall and therefore transmit more of the small bumps in the ride, but it pays off with steering feel. I think the tread pattern also is advantageous as it is more traditional, but appears it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Excellent technology on Super Sport tire that outperforms with any street tires. The noise level is unreal quiet than others brand that I have never experienced in the cabin of BMW 530i. With the sport suspension with the factory default -2deg camber alignment spec on the rear, amazing handling with these tires. Very happy with the purchase.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta XS

I am using these tires in sizes 275/35WR18 in the rear and 245/40WR18 in the front, on the BMW OEM 18-inch rims. They are wider than the stock tires and, in fact, they are the widest tires that will fit on the OEM rims. My M3 has several modifications, including Dinan Stage-III suspensions and "CSL" competition brakes.After 3000 miles the tires are not very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero Run Flat

They were installed on my 2010 BMW 550i GT with the OEM M5 wheels about three days BEFORE I purchased the car used..... I've got just shy of 12K on them to date and I really couldn't be much happier than what I am...... Dry traction is the best I've ever experienced on any car I've owned in the past.... Steering and cornering is super responsive under all...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Purchased these tires to replace the OE Bridgestone Turanza EL 400-2 marginally worn tires, because of their poor wet handling performance in standing water at highway speeds. In my first 2500 miles with the Continental Pure Contacts, they performed flawlessly in heavy downpours at 70 MPH, and in dry conditions are smoother and quieter-riding than the OE...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2

98 BMW 528i w/factory sport package - 16 wheels, tire: 225/55/16Previously had the earlier version of this BFG tire on my smaller 15 wheels and they proved all-round very good. The Comp 2's are being removed after 2,500 miles. These tires stick like glue and have a very stiff sidewall - from a performance standpoint they're excellent - however, there ride...  Read More

Best Brake Pads for 2014? It Could Be Brembo's New Offering

All brake pads produce dust as they wear. However, there are some pad materials that create a less noticeable dust and don't make your wheels look like they're covered in tar. A newer form of friction material, called ceramic composite, creates a light-colored dust that's much less noticeable and is less likely to stick to your wheels. Ceramic pads are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4

Like how PA4 communicates to driver in ice or snow conditions. First winter on the PA4 but has proved grippy and secure. Can tell when tire will break away on fresh or packed snow and what it takes to bring it back. More sophisticated than an average snow tire. In times past used Nokian, Blizzack, Dunlop, and many standard or high performance snow tires on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Position

My car is a BMW 335xi Dinan 3. Dinan Stage2 suspension, Dinan exhaust system and Dinan stage 2 computer download. Most likely the best handling car I've ever owned and great in the snow as well.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Amazing treadwear, after 10,000 miles, including two driving schools and two autocross days, the tires look great -- D, W, S markings all clearly visible and no chunking of tread blocks. With that wear resistance, the tires do not keep up with sticky rubber on the track, but that's not my objective. Tires are confident on wet asphalt and light snow, very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 ZP

I have this tire on a BMW Z4 so it is hard to evaluate. Z4 steering is as vague as a Honda so I wanted every advantage I could get. Steering is still vague. The back end does not kick out any more, can not make it do so. Rears stick like glue. These tires do not get caught in road ruts like other run flats. When warm they ride well, pretty harsh when cold. I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Great tire. I have had Toyos, Yokohama, and Generals on this car. (Daily Driven) I have moded this car with suspension change, springs, shocks, sway bar, and alignment. Oh yeah, the power is up another 60+ hpPrevious tires just did not work as well, These Michelin's are wonderful on this car. Grippy, predictable, reasonably quiet, they hold the road. I have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Just had service done to my car and was told that the inside of my current Hankook Ventus rear tires are worn to the belts after 16K miles. Absolutely not surprised considering the low tread rating and the excessive camber of the BMW's sport suspension setup. Front tires still have enough life left to probably last as long as the 2 new rears....  Read More
