Tire Size 265 70R17 Versus 285 70R17: Can I Use a Larger Size?

Before asking the question, "Can I use a larger tire size?", you should first ask yourself "Should I use a larger tire size?" Why is this important? While going to a larger size may give you that "big tire" look, changing your vehicle's tire size affects more than just cosmetics. Altering your vehicle's tire size can affect speedometer and odometer...  Read More

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

I had Cooper touring tires and I wanted more out of my life. My car also wanted more. I decided to get these tires and honestly they're the best tires ive ever driven. They grip good in the dry and pretty good in the wet. This isn't a soccer mom tire. Honestly after putting them on my Nissan Altima 2001 SE Sedan 2.4L 4cyl, my car feels like it's much faster.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is the tire Ford should put on the Explorer Sport. I don't think the DWS would have been as good on my BMW 535 as I tried the DW and it was too soft a sidewall and too slow a steering response. The DWS, in my opinion, is a perfect match for the amount of horsepower the 3.5 EB puts out. I have had several different brands on this Explorer but this one is...  Read More

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

I live in Provo, Utah and we are having a very snowy winter. I purchased my car used in September and the dealer had put on a set of Toyo tires that were terrible in the snow. I noticed a huge improvement in light and heavy snow traction as soon as I had the Pirellis put on. Almost as good as pure winter tires that I ran on a BMW. The tires are also very...  Read More

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

These tires replaced the set that came on the car when we bought it used. I was not impressed by the ride or the response. A slow leak issue prompted us to replace them and our mechanic/ TireRack installer recommended the Michelin brand, these tires specifically. The ride is firm, not plush but the handling is excellent. The BMW 128i now drives like it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I bought those tires mostly on the basis of other reviews. I didn't want to buy a dedicated snow tire/wheel set for my M5 and wanted something to work in snow and summer.Bottom line, this tire's traction in snow is very decent... On ice, it's not that good as I expected. The ride is soft and cornering isn't that great but again this is an all season tire...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

By far the best tires i have ever owned (and i've owned many) for performance. I've had a set on my BMW M235i (non-awd) and boy do these things grip, very sticky once warm! The car does the advertised 0-60 in 4.2 seconds and you feel the acceleration all because of the tires grip. It's my Daily so its mostly City with some Highway. I have done some light...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

Took these up to the mountain and I have gotta say i'am very impressed in the quality of these tires. I initially went in to get snow tires but i was quickly referenced to these all seasons in terms of versatility and performance. I did replace my OEM run flat tires which some people and the dealership advise against, but as long as you monitor tire pressure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is the fourth vehicle I have put either the DWS06 or its predacessor the DWS on. I have been very pleased in each case. We have the DWS on our BMW Z3 and on our Porsche Boxster and had them on a previous Mazda 3. The new DWS 06 is a bit quieter and has a bit better turn in and retains the excellent ride and grip under all conditions other than snow &...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I have had these tires just over a year now and put about 20,000 miles on them. These are the best tires all-weather tires I have had on my BMW. The only drawback is they are a bit noisy. They handle well in the dry, wet, snow and are really great on the ice. My rear wheel drive BMW with some wight in the trunk, now gets around as good as my front wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Because a hip replacement made clutching difficult for my wife, we reluctantly replaced our E36 BMW with a 2015 4 Door Mini Cooper S with 6 sp Autotrans (remarkably good, btw - the first slush box I have not hated). Since she was about to take a month long road rip in Feb 2016 from Portland, Oregon across the Siskiyou Mountains to Cal, I wanted to make sure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

...I'll write another review after a few storms. I selected this tire after reading close to all of the 275 available reviews. I grew up in Vermont and moved to Colorado 20+ years ago. I have an '06 Mini Cooper S Convertible, which will serve as a back-up to a leased BMW i3 (which I didn't want to get snow tires for), so in the winter it will be my car to...  Read More

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

The Michelin Sport A/S 3+ are super sticky on 328i 2010 Sport suspension. I staggered tires to match sports package, which was not set up prior to used car purchase. The previous owner did the economic non sport setup where all tires were the same size. The new setup increases car performance in ways I love. It has improve my ride comfort (luxury-goes over...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3

Take this review with a grain of salt as I just had these tires installed. I had quite a few different tires on my 6 years BMW 128i and that car being as tactile as it is, I can immediately feel a the difference from a tire to another with it. I just swapped my summer tires (Continental Extreme Contact DW, which I adore) for these for getting prepared for...  Read More

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

Finally threw my second set of 4 Bridgestone Turanza EL4 run flat in the dumpster that were nor completely worn. I just could not take the noise and harsh ride any longer. My BMW 335xi is now fun to drive again. I have not had them long enough to have driven them in heavy rain or snow, but they are quiet and smooth.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I replaced my well worn OEM Pilot Super Sports on my 2013 BMW M5 after 48,000 miles of average to spirited driving with another set of Pilot Super Sports. This car is mainly my commuter car and 90% of it is on smooth highway roads in NJ. The reason why I was able to extract more miles out of these tires even though they are propelling a 560 + HP and 500 +...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02 (W-Speed Rated)

I just but these tires on my bmw 750i. I can not report on tread life at this time, but I can tell you that all my friends and I can not believe the difference in the ride. It is like a different car. Feels like just came off showroom floor. Had Pirelli p-zero on it before. These sumitomo blows the Pirelli out of the water. I am amazed in the difference it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

The tires completely change the cars comfort and driving experience by mitigating the harshness and wandering of the oem continental conti rfts. Immediate improvement / the car is now is grand tourer like my other BMWs that ride on Michelin Primacy non rft. I had the Driveguards shipped to my house and installed by BMW for $79. At $161 per tire (and $70...  Read More

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

It was a big jump getting away from the Conti Run Flats, but the best move I ever made, it's like a totally different car, just amazing. The car now rides and handles as I assume BMW originally intended. My only issue is not having a spare, although I do carry a plug kit, compressor and AAA card, so I am covered. Best move I ever made moving to these...  Read More
