Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These tires replaced the Bridgestone Turanza EL42 Runflats that came with the car originally. The DriveGuards are a big improvement. Better ride and much quieter. Overall comfort level is on par with non-Runflats. Overall traction in rain and dry is good so far. I'd recommend these tires over the BMW star spec tires that are OE.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact SSR

My wife has had these tires on her 2009 BMW E92 328ix Coupe for 3 years and about 22K miles. They were new when she got the car and they are nowhere near worn out. She does a fair amoung of freeway driving at 70-80 MPH and the tires are smooth, quiet (for a 3-series sports coupe) and have been pleasing to drive. Handling is quite good, and bending corners is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

replaced oem Continental touring Contact tires after 19k. Still had some tread but noisy. The Driveguard is a much smoother tire and seems to handle just as well as oem tire. Hoping to get over 30k out of a runflat which is is fantastic. Bridgestone has priced these tires very competively vs all other oem BMW runflats. BMW OEM star rated tires are overpriced...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

These have been on the car for only a week, so the jury is still out on longer-term satisfaction, but I can confirm the maker's claim that they ride like non-run-flat tires. HUGE difference (improvement) in feel through the steering and seat-of-the-pants. If you live where roads can be choppy and you're tired of the harshness of the OEM Goodyears or...  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 Continental ExtremeContact DW

After 2000 miles with this tire it is still a bit early to draw conclusions but so far I feel really happy with it. They are a vast improvement over the stock summer RFT (Goodyear NCT5, which is NOT a performance summer tire in my book). I was fearing a lack of steering feel based on the reviews I saw but I did not notice any lack of it compared to my...  Read More

Bridgestone DriveGuard Run-Flat: Not Just for BMW and MINI

Traditionally, run-flat tires have been used mainly for limited vehicle types as specified by certain manufacturers for Original Equipment use. Prime examples of this is are BMW 3 Series vehicles since the mid-2000s, the new MINI Cooper and all fifth-generation and newer Chevrolet Corvettes. These vehicles once represented a small portion of the market that...  Read More

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

These Michelin Pilot Sport AS3s are great all-season tires for my wife's BMW 135i. These are the front tires and they have worn well but they are becoming noisier as they wear down.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I'm putting another set of theses on my wife's BMW X3. The first set was awesome. They really didn't need to be replaced yet as you can still see the S on the tread 3.5 mm - 4 mm. We plan to keep the car about another year and we might as well get the benefit of the new tire for this winter. She drives the car approximately 30 miles one way daily and I was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I got the Yokohama S. Drive in December of 2011. It is now August 2014 and they need to be replaced (which I will be doing in October. These are great if you're on a budget and/ or like to test out different tires. I drive an 04 Mini Cooper S and these tires grip amazingly well when they are warm. Most people don't get this warm concept and usually spin out...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

First for my fellow BMW brethren -- I made the switch to a non-run flat after a total of 11 years driven on several different RFTs on two different cars. With a compressor, TPMS-friendly Slime, and a mini-spare, I hope I'm covered. These are quieter, smoother, and take bumps better. Even though I went from a summer performance tire in the RFT, I don't feel...  Read More

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

Purchased Pirellis for my son's BMW. Wanted reliability and performance , these tires are great improvement over Conti's they replaced, very quite, smooth ride, better handling. My 2013 Mustang GT came with Pirelli P-Zero and performed well in all weather.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier R7

Just finished running my first set of R7s on the front of my BMW 135 race car at Putnam park. First, grip levels are excellent (at least as good as the R6). Second, the new tread pattern minimizes tire deformation under extreme track conditions (they wore perfectly flat across the tire). Third, one set lasted an entire 3-day track weekend. Typically I'll use...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I've had these tires on my 2000 BMW 750iL for 3 winters, going on 4. They are incredible. I owned a set of the Blizzak WS15 and WS70 tires prior to purchasing the Michelin Xi3; there is no comparison. In fairness, one should bear in mind at one point the WS15 and later the WS70 was the latest technology, before the Xi3 even existed. I live in Minnesota, so...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy MXM4 ZP

When I first got these tires at costco my entire car started shaking from 55MPH thru 80 MPH. I saw the tires were balanced. Cornering and steering response was terrible. After driving for two days for about 100 mile things got better. Intensity of vibrations reduced to 20 percent. I got high speed road force balancing done at Paul Miller BMW and that changed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32 RFT

Other than some extreme snow tires I've had in the past, these Bridgestones are simply the best snow tires I've ever used. My BMW was rear wheel drive and we had some bad winters in the 4 seasons I had these tires. Traction is awesome. Never felt hampered with rear wheel drive. Tread life is excellent. You can get 7 winters on these tires. I love them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I just bought the tires, on dry road I can feel the tires grab the pavement, in the rain it handle just as good. So far I'm very happy with the tires. I live in a steep hill, winter hasn't started yet, I'm hoping it works well when we get icy/ snowy road conditions where I live. But so far I'm very happy and satisfied with the tires.We had Blizzak tire...  Read More

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

If you own a BMW 1995 5 series, BUY THESE TIRES!! What a difference from the BF Goodriches they replaced! In the interest of full disclosure, though, I mounted them on 18 inch Verde Kaos rims (also bought here), not the OEM basket mesh rims. This may be an important detail. I've gotten MANY compliments on how sharp and classy this tire/wheel combo looks on...  Read More
