Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

Nothing brings out the performance of your auto more than a good set of tires. With 45,000 miles on them, the OEM tires were getting noisy and starting to wear unevenly (a given with BMW rear tires). Time to buy tires and get back to Bridgestone.I have tried several other brands over the years but nothing performs like the And just when you think they have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Winter

Living in the high sierras, a dedicated winter tire is a must. Normal snowfall is 400 per year although the last two winters have been unfortunately mild.Driving a Q5 S-Line Prestige with a 255/45/20 size, a real winter tire is needed. Previous tires for the Q5 included the Bridgestone LM-60 and the Conti Extreme Contact DWS. The Conti was noisy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiSportContact 3 SSR

I was dubious of the OEM run flat for BMW but was pleasantly surprised that run flats have improved over the years. The wear rate was fantastic considering this is a Z rated tire. On the BMW, this tire displayed well above average wet and dry traction, cornering is superior with responsive turn in and stable corner grip. The only thing not well above average...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 ZP

Tucker was great explaining what I should expect from a winter tire. We went from being stuck in the driveway with the summer tires, to looking forward to snow so we can drive the BMW. Waiting for a blizzard. Thanks Tire Rack   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

After moving into a new house that has a very steep, paved driveway, I wanted to get snow tires for my BMW and my wife's Subaru (both AWD). I chose the Blizzak's for theSubaru and the Dunlop Wintersports for the BMW. This review is for the Blizzaks so I will speak mostly to these. Bottom line, these tires are awesome. I purchased mainly for snow and ice...  Read More

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

2014 640i Gran Coupe Xdrive. Came with Goodyear LS2 Runflats. The ride was so harsh and tires loud that i took them off the car with 3000 miles and i didn't have the reliability issues others have had with no potholes here in Florida. I can't believe BMW sells an 88K luxury car with these tires. I have decided that after going through Performance tires every...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I just replaced the OE POTENZA RE050A RFT tires that came on my BMW with a set of these. What an amazing difference! These tires eliminate the harshness of the RF tires and offer much improved handling and confidence. Can't yet comment on the longevity but a much better tire than the OE tire. Very happy with this tire and worth the non-RFT trade off! Much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Diamaris

Bought a used 2005 X5 and needed tires within 3 months of purchased. As my first BMW and an SUV at that, I was very impressed with the handling but shocked at the price per tire ($300+) . Tire Rack has the best prices so that helped. Another shock (didn't notice at purchase was the different sizes, front to rear, so no rotating. This became my wife's car and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

My BMW had run flats on it and I hated the ride. These tires are a breath of fresh air!!! Smooth, reactive and very responsive. Great on the highway and so far so good! I admit I just got them but WHAT A DIFFERENCE. Low road noise and better ride almost immediately. For the price run, don't walk and buy these great tires. Nice $60. rebate through august 31st...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek Touring A/S

This is a follow up to my original review a year and a half ago. 35,000 miles on the GrandTreks with dedicated snow tires utilized in the winter, so I have no experience with these in snow. They are still running very smoothly with only a barely perceptible increase in road noise. Guessing I will get 10,000 more miles out of these for a total of 45,000...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature HP

I researched a number of tires before getting the Dunlop Signature HP and I am glad I did. They are quiet, handle great and were a great price (about four hundred for all four). I drive aggressively and these tires respond great. The noise is hard to judge with a convertible (even with the top up), but they seem quieter than previous tires. I would buy these...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Run Flat

I bought these Pirelli Scorpion Run-Flat tires to replace the original equipment Bridgestone Duelers on my 2009 BMW X5. Early on, I'm extremely satisfied.I never liked the way the Bridgestones held the road and took turns. The Pirelli Scorpions, on the other hand, hold the road like velcro with a slightly softer ride. During a downpour, they performed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DW

These are the 2nd set of Extreme Continentals I've purchased. This tire is the best buck for your $! The ONLY complaint I have is the treadwear. I'm no speed demon, but my BMW is rear wheel drive and it seems that these tires installed on rear wheel drive cars tend to wear out very fast. Both my rear tires wore down to the bone by 15,000 miles but the 2...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I purchased these tires when my OEM Yokahoma tires were worn out. I was told that these were great tires, as they are OEM for BMW's and other high line cars. I was highly disappointed. Within the first 18 months, one tire began cracking, I guess from the Florida sunshine, had to be replaced. Numerous times after a light rain, I would fine my Mustang...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I have seen some bad reviews on these tires but I don't think they are bad. I think they are a great deal for the money. I am putting them on a BMW Z3 and they have been great on twisty roads and in the rain. This car I don't drive in the snow so I can't rate them there. But great tires for a second car you don't want to spend lots of money on.   Read More

The Best All-Season Run-Flat Tire for Your TPMS-Equipped Vehicle

Do you or a spouse travel on business? Maybe you have a child just learning to drive or perhaps leaving for their first year of college. If you do, you certainly want what we all want: for them to be as safe as possible. Bridgestone spent a decade developing a tire for just these types of situations. The DriveGuard┬áis the first run-flat tire designed...  Read More

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 vs Michelin Pilot Super Sport

If you were to check out customer survey results for the top two tires in the Max Performance Summer category, you would find that the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is currently ranked number one. I've used a set on my own vehicle and you can learn about my experience by taking a look at "Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires Installed on My Car." The second...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

Bought the DWS Conti's for my C5 Corvette based on reviews and I've also had a set on a BMW M3 that I drove year round. They are very,very quiet and they ride much nicer than the OEM run flats. The softer sidewall results in steering response that is not as sharp as summer tires, but once you turn in, the tires grip well and are predictable. Traction is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone DriveGuard

Put these run flats on after I had put about 36000 on my OEM Continental tires that came with the car. Road noise was much better and handling was improved quite a bit. I do like the way my BMW rides on these. I would recommend getting a set!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  Read More
